LIKE THE ORDINARY? YOU'LL LOVE NIOD
By Rebecca Wade, 26 July 2017
So you've definitely heard of The Ordinary – or own every glass vial under its name – but if you're looking for a fancier face experience, turn to its more sophisticated sister, NIOD. Yes, the products might read like a throwback to Year 9 chemistry (NIOD is short for, *deep breath*, Non Invasive Options In Dermal Science), but the glowy results are proof that the people in the lab coats know what they're talking about. Here are the five products to add to bag, pronto...
Pores? Say no more...
Clean me, please
No alcohol, no silicone, no fragrance + totally organic and vegan-friendly. Your cleanser has never been cleaner. Apply the product onto dry skin and watch all your troubles (dirt based, obvs) melt away. Bonus: the leftover residue boosts the absorption of anything you apply after.
Throw away the lippie. A teensy drop of this wonder serum will not only leave your lips plumper and softer, but will also boost blood circulation to increase overall lip-redness ASAP. Lip stain au natural, holla.
Moisturiser, but not as you know it. Say goodbye to greasy 4pm shine. Think of this 'vaccine' as a seal that locks in hydration while letting your skin breathe. The result? A soft, matte finish that makes for the perfect make-up base.
NIOD Hydration Vaccine 50ml, $70
Firm and fast
Basically the fountain of eternal youth in a jar. Smother on for just 15 mins once a week for a B.I.G. difference. Derived from tree sap, this myrrh-based lay mask tightens and firms for younger seeming skin that looks lit from within.
NIOD Myrrh Clay Masque 50ml, $56
