What is NIOD LVCE?

Deciem says: LVCE is a skin cleaning system that respects dermal barriers while regulating visible sebum production, cleaning the skin thoroughly, and removing all traces of makeup in a single step. LVCE contains no cleansing plant oils, no detergents, and no water but instead uses isolated sugar and avocado esters to remove every trace of dirt and makeup with or without water. While the skin feels comfortably hydrated after each use, the technologies in LVCE will actually further act as delivery boosters for topical treatments applied after cleaning. 


When and how do I use NIOD LVCE?

  • You can use NIOD Low Viscosity Cleaning Ester in the morning and in the evening.
  • Apply directly to a cotton pad and then rinse or apply to dry skin, massage, and rinse.
  • Always patch test. For a full list of ingredients, please check the Deciem website.

NIOD LVCE has fast become my go-to holy grail cleanser. It melts through makeup and SPF magically. It may appear to be pricier than other cleansers with almost everyday use this lasts me just shy of 6 months so it is amazing value. I’m on my 4th bottle.

One of the most important things I look for in a cleanser (besides great cleansing) is that it does not irritate my eyes like so many cleansers do! Well LVCE doesn’t and gets a permanent spot in my routine.

Word of warning if you have never used this before. It doesn’t feel like a typical oil cleanser. In fact, when you wash it from your face it feels like a film remains. This actually acts as a delivery booster for other serums you apply once finished cleansing. It’s a beautiful product.


Does NIOD LVCE go before or after NIOD SS? It would be LVCE + SS.

Can NIOD LVCE be combined with a face wash to remove makeup? You certainly can if you wish.

Does NIOD LVCE work in a similar way to Squalane Cleanser? Both are wonderful cleansers that help to remove traces of dirt and makeup while leaving the skin comfortable, smooth, and moisturized. The consistencies and ingredients of the products differ.

Could I apply NIOD LVCE this with a cotton pad in the morning without water rinse? You can if you wish but we normally do recommend to rinse off with water. 

NIOC LVCE contains linalool which is a horrible allergen.  It is an allergen but not an irritant. If you are not allergic to linalool, it is not an irritant. It is used in extremely small amounts. The natural esters used in LVCE have very strong odors that linalool balances out. If you are not allergic to linalool, the % we use in such products is extremely small to cause any form of irritation whatsoever. ❤ Hope this helps!

Is the packaging for NIOD LVCE glass or plastic? Plastic which is recyclable.

Final Thoughts

  • 45% of the #deciemaddicts love NIOD LVCE
  • 39% say they have seen an improvement
  • 35% will repurchase NIOD LVCE.

I’m a little surprised by the results of the polls because I use this and love it, but like I always say, not everyone will like every product which is why I always encourage you to ask the #deciemaddicts in the Facebook Group.

There are mixed reviews about this product and sometimes it’s due to the explanation on the Deciem site. All I can say is that this product removes the stubbornest of mascaras in a flash. It leaves skin feeling really soft and hydrated.

The price. It does seem expensive for a cleanser but please always take into account the size. This is 240ml and it lasts ages!
