The phrase “Time Flies When Your Having Fun” springs to mind as I can’t believe that it’s been over a year since I first discovered the NIOD brand and shared their innovative, high tech skin solutions with you all. I was continually impressed with this brands new approach to skincare throughout 2016 and I’ve tried many products from the range.
If you have missed any of those reviews you can check out the NIOD brand page on my blog HERE.
If you are new to NIOD they are a very modern high tech skincare brand that is completely different to any other range you might have used before, as each of their formulas are “open-ended” meaning that they are constantly researching and developing cutting edge technologies in their purpose built factory so they can quickly create and deliver the newest formulas with the latest beauty “buzz word” ingredients.
This brings me onto some exciting news as NIOD will be having their first TSV on QVCUK on the 3rd February 2017. This collection has everything you need to give your skin a #FreshStart and can tackle many skincare concerns from ageing and fine lines to enhancing the health of your skin by refining the skins texture and radiance, regardless of your age or gender.
Item 230215 – NIOD 4 Piece Dermal Science Skincare Collection £48.96 RRP £140 Available on Auto Delivery
- Sanskrit Saponins 90ml – This viscous and intense cleansing balm for the face is part of their yešti series which means “Ahead is not further than behind” Put simply it’s a collection of products that aims to respect ancient past traditions and bringing them to the modern day, which is very similar to a principle that I live by and why I have a Sankofa tattoo symbol on my right wrist. This highly concentrated cleanser, uses a ph balanced suspension of the amino acid, Lysin, in the form of saponins from Ayurvedic plants Shikaki and Sapindus Mukorossi, to throughly cleanse and target all forms of blemishes, congestion, impurities and build-up on the skin. It’s important to point out that this isn’t a makeup remover, I would suggest removing all makeup prior using the LVCE if you wish to stay with the NIOD range, as this works incredibly at melting away all traces of makeup from the skin. You can also use this cleansing treatment in two ways, one as a second cleanse every other day, by squeezing a small amount into the palm of your hands, massaged with a little warm water to create a mild lather which you then massage over the facial area, avoiding the eyes so make sure you keep them closed until you have rinsed all of this active cleansing formula away to avoid any smarting or stinging. Once this has been incorporated into your routine over the period of a week to ten days, I would suggest you apply as a mask as a skin treatment, leaving it on the skin for five minutes before rinsing off. The “SS” has been part of my routine for past couple of months prior to receiving this collection and in that time the appearance of my pores are greatly refined and the appearance of my skin looks fresher and brighter, I also no longer wake up with my skin feeling oily or greasy. I would highly reccomend you add this into your routine and see the difference for yourself.
- Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1% 15ml – This serum along with the “MMHC” is recommended by NIOD as skincare staples to maintain healthy looking skin, so it’s fantastic to see both in this collection. This serum comes in two glass bottles to preserve the freshness of the Copper Tripeptide-1, which is a peptide found in nature, but is also present in the human body to aid with wound healing, collagen synthesis and blood vessel development but from teenage years these levels drop and by the age of 60 your skins natural levels have dropped by more than 60%. You simply pour the contents of the CAIA into the CAIS, shaking the formula well for at least thirty seconds and then discard the empty bottle. If you are used to using a facial serum in your routine then this has a much lower viscosity, even lower than water, so the texture will appear very fluid and I would suggest applying a couple of drops into the palm of your hand, pressing them together then quickly applying all over the facial area. This is my second course of this essential serum and the benefits only increase over time, as my skin looks healthy, radiant and above all the texture of my skin is far more refined and smooth.
- Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex 30ml – This serum contains twelve different types of Hyaluronic Acid compounds in a peptide charged delivery system, to enable the skin to attract hydration and lock in the moisture on many different levels. Hydration is one of the single most important factors in creating a healthy looking skin as it feeds the skin with essential nourishment to function at it’s best. In my experience it has meant the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are much less noticeable and my skin feels soft and plump. If you are using this as part of the NIOD routine then this is applied after the CAIS or after cleansing and before moisturising with any other skincare ranges.
- Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate 15ml – This hyper concentrated bio-serum combines 28 clinical technologies, to target all signs of ageing around and above the eye area in one fantastic product. So many times I have used multiple products for different eye concerns, but it is important to remember that the eye area is very thin and it can be very easy to overload which can cause further problems such as milia and puffiness. I have only been using this twice a day for the past week but I have already noticed a big difference, the appearance of lines around my eyes and puffiness under my eyes are far less noticeable, but the biggest difference i’ve noticed is that my hereditary hooded lids appear lifted and firmer, which is something I have always battled with. Also I am a very happy, smiley person so I do get expression lines but this concentrate with it’s expression technologies have even made the appearance of these less noticeable, which I wasn’t expecting a topical product to be able to do.
At first glance the names of these products can sound complicated and unlike anything you have heard of before, but these are very simple and easy to use, with this collection containing a cleanser, facial serum and eye serum as a complete skincare routine.
Overall if you are someone who is serious about your skincare or if you have made yourself a commitment that 2017 will be the year that you look after your skin better, with minimal fuss but with fantastic rewards then this NIOD TSV is a must have to put to the test and see the results for yourself. I like how the packaging of these products are minimal, yest stylish and are very much gender friendly, I know lots of men who would be happy to use this range purely based on the appearance, but also I know that the majority of men want instant results which you will experience if you give this collection a try.
I have noticed that when the NIOD range is being discussed on social media the product names are often shortened to their initials, so if you notice #MMHC or #CAIS being mentioned then they will be referring to this range as many of the products have already reached cult beauty status in such a short space of time.
I hope you can tune in to QVCUK at midnight on the 3rd February 2017, to find out more about this collection and place your order to try it for yourself.
