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

Stemm High Density Stimuli Set for Blonde Hair

Hey everyone,

I have this past month been using the Stemm hair range for blonde hair. I  have tried a lot of expensive hair care this last 30 years or so and had pretty much given up on finding anything that would make my very fine curly hair volume and life.

It had gotten to the stage where a ponytail was pretty much as far as I got with it because to try and nourish the curls and the fact I had it coloured it pretty much just went lank and lifeless and had started to look extremely thin and I hated it.

So I started using Stemm as it claims to help with hair loss. lack of volume, condition. I warn you now these are hair treatments that really get down and tackle hair issues. They smell very different to what you may be used to but they have worked for me where I thought nothing would work and that overrides everything, plus it is important to know the smell of the ingredients does not linger on your hair in any way.

There is so much science behind these products is is impossible for me to cover it all. But I can tell you what they have done for me and I can back it up with a couple of pictures.

So the first product is Stemm Density Stimuli  a powerful hair serum that you massage into your scalp every evening. It combines vitamins, minerals, amino acids, peptides, polyphenols and other vitamins to help hair regain its thickest, fullest & strongest look.

This is to give your hair follicles everything it needs to produce strong healthy hair!

I have found this is pretty much absorbed by morning. I do not wash my hair every day so I tend to use this every other evening. (plus the ocd part of me is trying to make the bottle last along with the shampoo and conditioner) You only need a little and you massage it in.

High Amino Shampoo is a concentrated product to gently cleanse the hair and scalp without damaging it, it works by supplementing the hair with the natural amino acids and nutrients our hair needs to keep it healthy, full glossy, soft & shiny.

All these products are sulphate free and the shampoo tho it cleanses the hair well it doesn’t foam up a lot . It doesn’t smell of flowers and exotic places either but I don’t really care about that and for very good reason I will get to soon …

Gold Fulvic Conditioner – for Blonde Hair is a rinse off conditioner with no build up on the hair associated with other hair conditioners. It will never give you lank hair! Lank hair is the bane of my life with curls .. you have to condition them and this pulls the curl down leaving it very lank.

So while the serum and shampoo both work on the scalp, getting it healthy and keeping it healthy and cleansing. The Fulvic conditioner, it specifically targets the damaged parts of our hair. The over heat treated/coloured/weak hair shaft. It works on fine flyaway hair and damaged hair. It restores strength and volume.

Now having most of the hair problems that have been mentioned above I cannot believe the change in my hair!! They call this skincare for hair .. well I can only agree fully as I feel like it has taken 30 years off and given me the hair I had in my 20’s and that is really saying something.

My hair  much stronger my hair is, the shine it has, the volume and the LIFE,vitality, softness and shine this has given my hair. It looks and feels fully restored back to a former crowning glory I thought I would never see again.

Ok so it smells of the natural and some organic ingredients in the bottle but it is oh so worth it but there is no sulphates or parabens in here of fake perfumes and it is a complete hair treatment system and it is the first one I have tried that has ever lived up to what it promises.
This is my hair before and then after I have been using Stemm for over a month.


Before as you can see my hair is super fine and breaks very easily & limp. Below are the after pictures where you can visibly see how much stronger my hair is and how much vitality and shine has been restored!

 

 

I cannot recommend these enough to anyone with blonde coloured hair that needs strengthened and the health and vitality but back into their hair. There is also a set for darker head of hair as well.

The only place I can see this trio set available at the moment is QVC and it is the best value to buy them all together Stemm on Qvc

I can honestly say these products have totally surprised me and blown me away. I am still in awe every time I look at my hair … amazing!

Have you tried Stemm yet? If you suffer from low hair self esteem and your hair has lost its former glory, then like me then you need to try these ..

That is it for now folks

Stemm High Density Hair Serum by Deciem

Hello beauties,

As I get older, not only does my skin and face age, but I have really noticed that my hair has thinned, gotten a LOT finer, my curls have flopped and basically it looks and feels pretty lifeless and sad.

Anyone who knows me, knows I have spent quite a bit of money on high-end brands, to try to treat the lack of life, volume and body in my hair. But buying expensive shampoos and conditioners was quite frankly a waste of money; they might have smelled fantastic, but they weren’t hitting the mark really.

Hello Stemm!!

Deciem has recently released a set of 3 products, to treat all aspects of hair ageing, cleansing and conditioning. All without parabens and sulphates, to really tackle volume, hair loss, ageing and condition, from the scalp to the hair end!

There is a set for blonde hair & a set for darker haired beauties! I think the Stemm Density Stimuli deserves it’s very own post, because it treats the scalp and the hair follicle (root). So right from the first use, you are giving your hair the very best chance to be healthy as it grows.

Our hair, once it leaves the follicle, is dead, so it makes such good sense and it is vital to treat and keep those precious follicles healthy. In turn, we are giving hair a better chance to grow well, be stronger and healthy and restore vitality. It is pure anti ageing for anyone who suffers from fine, poor, damaged, or mature hair, that has lost its lustre.

Packed full of amino acids, green tea, caffeine, black vulvic acid, zinc, hyaluronic acid, magnesium, copper and so many other incredible ingredients, to give you the best hair growth and life to your hair you can possibly have.

The reason I am singing the praises of this product so much, is because of the results I have had personally from the products. I am 47 and my hair had lost all of its life due to health, medications, anemia and age.

As someone who loves skincare, I never connected the dots, to apply the same care to my hair as I did to my face….until now .. and it makes perfect sense and I am now reaping the rewards and results.

There is a gentle hair cleanser and a very clever conditioner that treats the damage on the actual hair shaft and really strengthens the lengths, which I also know has helped my hair incredibly and I do not say that lightly.

I really loved this treatment for the scalp, applied in a very small amount at night, no need to overload, you just need to massage it lightly over your scalp at night and let the follicles soak it up.

If you are going to spend a lot money to tackle ageing on your hair, it is crucial to get the very first step right I think; and this has improved even the lift, body and volume on the roots of my hair so much … I think anyone with thin, weak hair has nothing to lose by trying this.

It is a treatment at last, that in a 3 step process, tackles all aspects of my hair ageing and damage. I would say it has taken about 20 years off how my hair looks, feels and reacts and it is soo much stronger; no more stretching and snapping.

The set I have is the trio for blonde hair and the only place right now you can get the set is from QVC and it is much better value than buying individually. You can find the set here: Stemm 3 Step Hair Thickening Collection .

I will follow up with the shampoo and conditioner in another post (and get a trim lol) 

That is it for now beauties,

Colours by The Ordinary Launches Early April…. Yippee!

Hello everyone & hello Spring!

Not only have Deciem/Niod/The Ordinary Umbrella opened their first flagship store in London, but they will in a couple of weeks time be releasing their long awaited (impatient much?) Colours makeup range.

Colours will be a range of 2 foundations: 1. Colours Coverage Foundation is thicker in texture and will give the wearer a full coverage look, with spf15 and a semi-matte flawless finish.

2. Colours Skin Serum Foundation gives a sheer coverage, water-like in texture, great for Spring/Summer and this will be what I will be going for. There are lots of water based products on the market right now and I love the sheer, almost transparent look they give to my skin, so very natural and glowy. Again it will give a semi-matte flawless finish and has a built in spf15

There are 21 shades in each range, offering the buyer something to cover just about any skin colour, from very light to very dark. If you cannot get your shade quite right, then the company really goes the extra mile for a customer and will mix one up just for you in your shade!

the-ordinary-colours-foundation-shades-650x593

They will both be under an incredible £6 each and will offer the buyer a high quality foundation at an incredible bargain price. They are designed to rival & be every bit as good as high end foundations and I just cannot wait until they arrive!

Meantime if you are in London and close to the new Deciem store, you can go in and try the foundations as they have samples out .. if you do I shall be incredibly jealous lol ..I will put the address here for handiness if you are in that area –  18 lamb street, Old Spitafields Market.

I just know, that like everything Deciem does, the Colours range will not only be an instant hit with customers, it is also going to completely take the beauty world by storm and shake it up! (again)

If you would like to be notified when the foundations go live, then the best place to be signed up to  the waitlist on  Victoria Health here: The Colours Waitlist

Are you looking forward to The Colours going on sale too?

If I can say one thing about Deciem .. there is never a dull moment with what they do, always a rush of excitement and the feeling of new groundbreaking products and ideas!

Bye for now beauties,

NIOD Today’s Special Value Order of Use

Hello everyone, I have noticed that some of you are struggling with your NIOD TSV’s order of use, so here is a quick guide as to how and when you use it!

Do not feel bad about this, it is something that will be completely new to you, so it is a bit of a learning curve, but it is very worthwhile.

Until you get to know what everything is, I suggest putting a number on the bottle, until you are used to the names and the order of use.

1.Sanskrit Saponins:(SS) this you use on cleansed, clean skin. It is a skin cleanser and skin will feel so good after and all your skincare will work much better. You use this product every other day, morning or evening, whatever suits you best.

2.Copper Amino Isolate Serum: (CAIS) this is a very thin serum that gives fabulous results. I find it best to be seated, with the bottle in front of you, so you do not knock it over. Only 3 drops are needed (don’t waste it) onto the palm of your hand. Quickly smush hands together and take one hand over the top of your forehead and the other on your chin area and pat, then change hand position to over both cheeks and pat, then just pat hands gently over the rest of your face and job done! You know you have gotten this superlight serum exactly where it needs to be. Use morning & evening.

3.Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex : (MMHC) This serum keeps skin super hydrated, plumped up and juicy. 3 drops applied in the same way as copper above, but you will feel where this is going on as it is a bit thicker. Use morning & evening.

Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate: (FECC): Just one drop applied to under eye, orbital bone area and upper eyelid is all you need of this product for puffiness, dark circles, inflammation and elasticity. Use morning & evening.

So that is it! Easy when you know how.

It took me a while to learn it all too, but it is worthwhile using a guide until you are a bit more confident with the products really.

I know some ladies are seeing great results already. I hope you stick with the routine and start to get some great results too.

Bye for now

NIOD TSV 3rd of February on QVC

Niod Bio-Lipid Concentrate is lip plumping, Conditioning, Perfection!!

Hello everyone,

NIOD – Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science is a results driven brand that offers people who do not want to go down the surgical route an alternative to going under the knife. Their products are unique, trailblazing and streets ahead of most brands I have used.

IMG_20160805_152948454

What this means for me is I not only have the most AMAZING skin care ever … I am a total convert … because it gives me results that I can feel and see!

At 47 I was noticing that my lips were going a bit like a flat tyre and had definitely lost a lot of volume. I didn’t want to go down the route of lip plumping injections but I didn’t like how deflated my lips were either.

BLC  (Bio-Lipid Concentrate) is a combination of power packed latest technologies they plump, nourish, increase lip colour which fades as we get older and generally give us fuller bigger lips and for me this has been a Godsend.

It works!

It has lifted and filled my lips out as I hope the pictures show ..my lips are soft, hydrated and plumped (phew)

This product comes in a 15 ml and is generally around the £36 mark , I considered this a lot before I bought it but you only use one drop at a time, so 2 drops a day lasts you a very long time!

I am not going to even try to go into all the technology in this little bottle but I will tell you this .. I reach for it every day and I see the difference it continues to make to my lips .. it works long-term on a daily basis to improve lip volume… so the more you use it the better it works ..

IMG_20160805_153012945

I adore NIOD.  Gone are the days of heavy creams just sitting on your face that your skin cannot absorb .. move over to  slick potions that go straight into your skin delivering amazing results .. stick with NIOD and it will reward you .. lots!!

Ps please make sure you  wash your hands after using this product and don’t get it on any other part of your skin!

That is it for now

Take care

Nicola
