NIOD Today’s Special Value on QVC for 19th July 2017

Hello everyone,

Niod launches it’s second tsv on Qvc from midnight the 19th of July. This company just goes from strength to strength bringing us exciting new products and launches and I just love watching it grow as I feel we really needed something different in the skincare world and they have done just that.

I also like that they will never put in any ingredients that don’t need to be there like fillers, petrochemicals, fragrances ect. Just what needs to be in there to make a change on your skin. They don’t treat specific skin types …they treat skin to give you the best possible skin that you can have! 

So onto the products!

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 15ml – CIAS- This is a real staple in my skincare this works on skin health, you use this first on your skin and it works on repairing the skin from ageing, fine lines wrinkles, skin tone, it works to make your skin the best skin it can be. It is a staple in my skincare.

You use CIAS morning and evening and it goes on before anything else on naked skin, wait 30 seconds and then continue onto MMHC2

Next is a new product it is the Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid 2 15 ml  – So this product has recently been upgraded by NIOD (they will always give you the best product that they can). It contains 15 different forms of hyaluronic acid in different weights and forms to tackle skin hydration on all different layers of the skin.

I have been using MMHC2 this since it came out and I find it lighter, smoother, silkier and less tacky on my skin. Worth mentioning here all forms of HA are somewhat tacky. This is the big long drink of hydration my thirsty skin needs, love it!

NIOD Mastic Must 90ml – I think one of the most important things I have learnt since I started my Niod journey is environmental factors and the effects they have on skin. We don’t think when we are out and about about the pollutants hitting our skin on a daily basis but they do and they really irritate our skin so good face masks are an essential.

Plus as we age our pores get bigger . sad but true! Mastic Must clears out skin and pores .. it really gets down and into the dirt and pollution that has been sitting on our skin for years and gives you super clean skin and clean pores .. a clean pore is a smaller pore!! So the cleaner you work to keep them the smaller they will be.

This is best used in the morning or just before a big night out to give you really smooth, glowing skin and your pores all minimised to greatest effect.

Finally there is the NIOD Photography Fluid Opacity 12% – Known on Instagram as Selfie Serum and rightly so as it pixelates and blurs imperfections on your skin. If you log on and watch the demo on QVC for it you can see as Nicola spreads it out on her hand how that really works and bounces the light back off your face making you look your very best. I do love this product and you only need one drop into your primer or moisturiser to blur fine lines and imperfections, A lady should never go anywhere without it, even with no make up on this will make your skin look better.

So that is it folks .. another exciting NIOD tsv .. oh and the price, well if you were to buy individually they would cost £110 for one day on the 19th of July you can pick up these products for an amazing £40!

This link will go live at 10 am 16h of July and you can purchase your TSV from here NIOD TSV

Just to add I already own all of the products in this tsv and I have reviewed them from long term use. Oh and the Founder Brandon will be there live on Q too .. sooo excited to hear his thought processes behind his products!!

Bye for now

Just What is the Libbie Club and How Does It All Work?

Hey everyone,

Today I would like to explain what the Libbie Club is and how it works. I have been with it from the very start and I find them really easy to be a part of.

The Libbie Club is a part of Latest In Beauty and You Beauty Box who have brought us some of the best Beauty Boxes there are. LIB is a no subscription box ..they bring us hot trendy boxes if and when they have them and You Beauty offers us a subscription alternative which I love as I can always see the value in these boxes and they bring me fresh, exciting and new skincare.

So the Libbie Club is their Boutique where they sell high end full sized products and as a Libbie I take the offers and share them around friends, family and fellow skincare and beauty junkies …and that is it really!

You get to really learn about the products and what makes that individual item special, sometimes an insight from the brand as to what makes it tick and I love that sort of thing. I love learning about my skincare and what is in it.

If you convert a sale (you can make a purchase yourself if not) then you get the next month’s box free to review and share and that is basically how it all works. Of course you need to be putting some effort into this and sharing the word but I find everyone in the LC very warm and happy to help with any problems.

Sophie our Chief Libbie is very approachable, warm and helpful and she is all hands on deck everywhere! She must get it crazy some days lol!

A word on the products. Anything I have had from the Libbie Club has always been really good quality. There is a lean towards natural, organic, cruelty free products and that suits me just fine. I think people are learning a lot more online that these products are the best way to go.

So that is it… simple, easy to do and if you do it right it will reward you back. There is no hard sell here but knowing your products and being able to answer questions gives others who are buying confidence in the products which I think helps a lot.

There is a small deposit to pay on your first box but the box is always worth a lot more than that, of course months and value vary but once you have paid this and converted a sale then your next box is free and so forth…

I have truly loved trying all the products that have been sent to me by the Libbie Club and I have found some remarkable products that are now staples in my make up & skincare stash.

If you want to take a look at the Libbie Club or some of it’s offers you can find it all here

New CID Cosmetics i-smoulder Smokey Eye Pencil and Shadow

Hello everyone,

I have recently been trying out this New-Cid Smokey Eye Pencil and shadow and to be honest now I have picked it up I find it hard to put it down!

It is so fast and handy and takes up no space at all to carry round with me and it near enough gives me a total eye look on it’s own …

IMG_20160731_143729348

I just run the powder end over my eye, use my ring finger to dab it about a bit .. add some highlighter to my brow, some mascara and I am good to go .. it saves me so much time and give me a great daytime look.

The shade I have is ember and it is totally wearable for daytime or you can really smoke it out for the evening .. just flip it round and you have your eyeliner to match right there and primed to go.

rsz_img_20160717_135343592

I have to be honest and thought it was pretty much just ok to look at but when I got it on my eyes it really came into it’s own, added my mascara and have been very impressed ever since!

Now I pick it up every time as it is fool proof fast and stays put so well, I loves it.

Have you tried the dual ended eye products yet?

IMG_20160731_143854827

Once tried never forgotten!!

You can get them here on my Libbie Club page and at the moment there is a free travel sized Bee Good Cleanser with every order bit.ly/1G9s5LD

That’s it for now folks

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1% .. Truly Remarkable Skincare!

Hi everyone,

If you have not heard of Brandon Truaxe Or NIOD (non evasive options in dermal science) then you should really go to Victoria Health and read up on the incredible things he is doing in the Beauty world!

copper-amino-isolate-serum-1pct-15ml (1)

He is revolutionising the way we look at beauty and skin-care and completely turning it on his head. How he thinks and looks at what our skin needs is so much more pioneering and streets ahead of the usual huge beauty giants churning out the same sort of creams which are only slightly different down through their various channels.

So the first product I purchased was the NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum. It comes beautifully packaged in plain black boxes and white labels, slightly clinical, clean and a feeling of something that you feel is going to be high-tech and that is exactly what it is.

Two bottles  come with this product…. one looks empty .. do not turn it on it’s head and shake because it contains the copper powder needed to make up the serum.

You activate this yourself by mixing the Activator  and the copper flakes together and shaking for about 30 seconds to mix well and activate your serum. This way you get the freshest product that will stay active for you for the longest time. You keep this serum in the fridge to keep the ingredients as active and as potent as possible.

How this serum works is to help reduce all visable signs of anti-ageing. It is absorbed into the skin immediately and it forms a base to make skin look and act younger  from  it’s lowest depth upwards. So it is also treating the new skin before it gets up to the surface.

This is a thin light sky blue serum and I personally find the best way to apply this (as you only need 3 drops) and not over use it is to apply it to the palm of my hand and quickly mix it onto both hands and press it into my skin that is still damp from toning. That way I feel I get a good application of the serum all over my face.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On my own skin I have been using about a month now. I can see a more youthful  appearance and it has been remarked upon! I feel my face looks and feels healthy (I tend to be quite ashen) my pores do look smaller and firmness  and elasticity is much much better. Particularly the elasticity and spring back.

I could try and go into all the high-tech stuff about this serum. It is called skin-care for the hyper-educated. I am not quite in that niche but I love good skincare that works and that really matters to me and this really works! I know this because I can see and feel it every day.

I use it with the NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex with 12 different hyaluronic compounds to visably hydrate hydrate the skin. This is a godsend for anyone who struggles with keeping their skin hydrated as they get older as i know I do ..

Having tried  quite a few NIOD  products now and I can honestly say I just want more and more…. there is no heaviness with these products. They are lovely and light, the delivery goes instantly into the skin. There is no waiting for anything to sink in. You apply and straight away your done and you have intelligent products  that is making your skin work for you!

The NIOD umbrella is a very fast growing one. People are really waking up to what these powerful products can do for their skin.

The amazing Nikki Taylor is a massive NIOD fan and I have to say I have very cheerfully followed her down this line and been really excited by all the new releases and I just cannot wait to get my hands on them!

Have you had the pleasure of trying some of the NIOD products yet? If so are you loving them as much as me?

That’s all for now folks

Take care
