NIOD – How to use NIOD


The NIOD PAO (period after opening) is 6 months, so don’t go crazy buying too many products. When buying NIOD masks, just buy 1 or 2 and I recommend buying the smaller sizes first to check if you like them. When it comes to CAIS3 and MMHC2, I recommend buying the larger sizes.

NIOD Guide

What are the best NIOD products according to the #deciemaddicts?

I ran a poll in the Facebook Group asking for everyone´s favourite NIOD Products and here are the top 5 NIOD products.

Some of my personal favourite NIOD products

Updated September 2022

  • NIOD PF8% – My latest favourite product by NIOD is PF8% Photography Fluid 8%. If you´re someone who doesn´t enjoy wearing foundation but would love a bit of natural glow, then I would highly recommend trying this. This delivers a slight natural tan and glow and yet continues to feel like skincare.
  • NIOD MMHC2 – a hyaluronic concentrate serum that leaves my skin looking plumper and smoother.
  • NIOD SDSM – This was an absolute life-saver through the summer. Refreshing and hydrating.
  • Flavanone Mud has to be my favourite masque of all. It can sting a little initially but leaves skin glowing.
  • LVCE Cleaning Ester. It´s an amazing cleanser that removes some of the most stubborn mascaras. It does leave a film which I really like but some people don’t like this. My skin feels clean and really hydrated after using this.
  • NEC – I’m currently testing out the NEC which is like honey for the lower part of the face and neck and definitely seeing a difference in those selfies. You do need to be consistent with this and massage for at least 30 seconds.


What does NIOD stand for? Non-Invasive Options In Dermal Science.

Are there discount codes or coupons for NIOD? Have a look at the Deciem Discounts page here where you can sometimes save up to 25%.

How long can NIOD products stay open and what´s the shelf life? On the side of the NIOD bottles will be a sign saying 6m or maybe 12m which means this product should be used within this time once opened. Deciem says the shelf life of NIOD is between 18 and 24 months but from personal experience, I would use them as soon as possible, especially CAIS.

Where To Buy NIOD

If you are looking to buy NIOD, you can buy direct through Deciem or you can always find discounts of up to 25% off through authorized stockists of Deciem. Have a look at the Deciem discounts here.
