Lurking amongst my favourite lush tassel ferns is the beguilingly named Sanskrit Saponins by Niod. Formulated with Ayurvedic plants, it calls itself a cleansing balm but is closer in texture to a regular foaming cleanser. Having said that, it doesn't really lather well but it does get you squeeeeaky clean. Not great for drier skins but perfect for combo skin like mine . That faint herbal/spicy/woodsy scent though...
Sunday night in 2 parts #pmroutine
• removed sunscreen from forehead, jaw and chin with damp makeup eraser
• part 1: combined some @niod@deciem Sanskrit saponins with two capsules of activated charcoal and applied to the same areas that I cleansed. Left for about 10 minutes. Removed with another damp makeup eraser. I expected this to be drying. And I’ve never been more right. My forehead is ok but my chin and jaw are so tight.
• part 2: @jkosmmune_cosmetics beta glucan mixed with @niod mmhc.
• @drbarbarasturm cslm serum. This is so good. I just wish it W wasn’t so expensive.
• @skinbetter refresh moisturiser!
• @alkimiskin cinco oil. Normally I pat/massage this in but tonight I’m letting it sit and absorb at its own pace.
Goes to @deciem NIOD Line. Skincare for the hyper-educated. Because, we should be! We should know and understand what we are putting on our face and skin.
NIOD has captured my heart starting with the #FECC, followed by #sanskritsaponins. I have never had a bad reaction from the line, only great results. Visible, tactile, and exciting to use!
There is nothing boring when it comes to Deciem. Innovative skin care, daring posts, intellectually descriptive jargons no one else uses(lol), hearty, radical, abnormal, stimulating, thought-provoking, rule-breaking brand that shook the world of skincare! At this point, you either love it, or hate it. I choose the former. Simply because the line works. It delivers, without unreasonable cost. And it behooves you to do some research on what you are using.
It's only been three short months since i first started using NIOD, after i used FECC that was included in Caroline Hirons' Cult Beauty Box past December, and just recently ventured into The Ordinary line, which I am also starting to really love. (love cherry picking ingredients!)
Not to mention, Shipping is super fast when ordering directly from Deciem. (orders from Jersey City, NJ only takes 3 days to arrive).
These monkeys have my love. #skincarechallenge #favoriteskincarebrand #deciem#niod#theordinaryskincare #skincareobsessed#skincarelover#skincarecommunity#skincareaddict#skincaregeek
Been busy lately, 2 days no nanny with 3 kids is something
Now, all kids are asleep, I think I have time to do my short review🧡
This time are my empties (since I need more space for new products on my cubby). I know I need to stop collecting empty packaging, bottles, tubes
Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
Still be my first cleanser until now, simple step to wipe away dirts and makeup (read: heavy makeup). Full review on my previous post...
Pai Skincare Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
I would say, I love this #paiskincare cleanser, creamy texture, wipes away foundation & makeup (but not really clean my waterproof mascara), and it comes with the #dualfacecloth (2 sided cloth; smooth surface & textured surface). Paired this with #niod#sanskritsaponins and the result is clean, smooth, and very hydrating skin
RMK Skintuner Moist
Aaahhhh! Too much love for this product, this toner or maybe I can categorize this one as a #firstessence (just because with its thin texture, it’s packed with goodness of hydration for the skin) has done a great job for my dry skin.
After half bottle of #rmkskintuner I became stingy hahaa! It runs out quite fast, less than 2 months (I used this with cotton pad), price also quite expensive SG$60
Result: plumped and moist skin all day long.
Always been my favourite, the volume is very generous (240ml, so you have to be generous when using it ) and come with a non-failing mist sprayer.
This #niodsdsm really calms my skin whenever I feel my redness starts to appears, and gives the moisture that my skin needs all day long. Pat pat pat on your skin, and let it do the magic!..
My first introduction to Hyaluronic Acid, one of the best ingredients to inject moisture to the skin. #noveexperthyaluronique is a serum-booster containing the Hyaluronic Acid, because it’s a serum the texture is quite thick fluid, but it absorbs easily on the skin. Another great moisturiser for my dry combination skin

#Beautyreview of @deciem#niod#sanskritsaponins What does it claim to be? A super cleaning solution targeting build-up and impurities leaving skin looking almost pore-free.
Recommended use: Every other day (or more if desired)
Does it work? Well, it definitely leaves the face feeling squeaky clean. I’m also pretty sure I’ve noticed a difference in my complexion since starting to use it - clearer and fewer blemishes.
Plus points: Totally clean skin!
Neg points: It smells slightly earthy, which is maybe not to everyone’s taste. At £21 for 90 ml, it’s quite spenny, but I managed to pick up a 180 ml tube in the Deciem Black Friday sale for just £8! Total bargain.
Is it worth buying? If you’ve got money to invest in skincare yes, I wouldn’t go quite as far as to say it’s a miracle product but it’s pretty darn good. And if you can bag a bargain in the sale, go for it!
