It’s a long weekend here in Canada, and you may…
Last week one of my fave skincare brands, Deciem, asked a tough question, “what’s your favourite Deciem product?” It was not an easy decision, but I was up to the task!
This was all a part of a bigger plan. Deciem took our favourite products and sent them to a friend of our choosing as a gift… FOR FREE! The product I chose, as you can see, was the NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% ($60 CAD). NIOD stands for Non-Invasive Options in Dermal Science and is deemed as skincare for the hyper-educated. It promises noticeable results without having to get fillers, botox etc.
The science behind this serum essentially keeps your skin in a “heightened state of repair”. I know that sounds scary, but it isn’t. This serum works under the surface to form a healthy foundation to build younger skin from the ground up. Think of it as fixing the problem at the root instead of just slapping a coat of paint on it.
If you want to read more about this beauty science, I’ll let the experts at Deciem explain.
“This product contains 1.0% pure Copper Tripeptide-1 (GHK-Cu) to be mixed with a specialized activator before first use. This extraordinary concentration allows activation of a wide array of skin health functions that help to prevent and reverse largely all aspects of visible skin aging, including textural damage, uneven pigmentation, loss of elasticity, lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and general lack of a healthy radiance present in younger skin. In short, the skin will act and look younger starting within 5 days with continued improvements over time.”
You get the serum (which is a blue powder at the bottom of the bottle) and the activator. You uncap both of the bottles…
And carefully pour the activator into the serum.
Then you shakey-shake it for 30 seconds, screw on the dropper lid and pop that sucker in the fridge.
Use this 2x daily and I promise you will see results within 5 days. Obviously, I have to use this on and off when I am testing other skincare products, but I always go back to this serum for an immediate pick-me-up. I am currently rotating between this and fillume volumizing serum and seeing some kickass results.
