    • Why it's Cult

      NIOD (which stands for Non Invasive Options in Dermal Science) utilises ultra-sophisticated, leading-edge ingredients to bring your skin the best the industry has to offer. An advanced kind of purifying cleanser, this skin cleaning system thoroughly cleanses skin with isolated sugar and avocado esters rather than plant oils, detergents or water. Breaking down dirt, make up and other impurities by using ingredients with similar structures to them, this innovative system leaves faces flawlessly clean without drying them out.

    NIOD - Low-Viscosity Cleaning Ester

    NIOD Low-Viscosity Cleaning Ester Reviews

    It works, but there's caveats...
    This did a great job, and I love NIOD/The Ordinary products; HOWEVER - that said, where this falls short for me (and might for you as well) is (1)over time, I found the product inevitably gets on the bottle itself, giving it an oily feel and the label will eventually wear away - you almost have to keep the bottle washed, and (2) while the scent for me wasn't totally off-putting, I don't like scent, even "natural x" in my skincare (at all), and if you do expect it to smell nice, this won't. It's not that it's super strong or stinky but rather vaguely unpleasant in an "industrial" kind of way. Does it work? Yes, absolutely ticks the "gets the stuff off your face" box...however, if the possibility of scent or label slipping off might bother you, then this may not be your holy grail cleanser. I say this as a super NIOD-Ordinary-Hylamide loyalist: I wouldn't necessarily repurchase this one over my preferred Clinique balm cleanser because the balm format travels well and has literally no fragrance. Hope this helps someone. PS to Cult Beauty - but by all means, PLEASE start stocking their Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist, though! It's a great mist/toner, very soothing. I even use it on my hair sometimes.
    Disappointed
    I bought this feeling smug that I didn’t need any fancy fragrances or packaging, that I didn’t need to pay to buy in to the ‘experience’ around a product, just the product itself. Well I take it all back, this stuff smells really unpleasant and isn’t fun to use. I miss having a nice smelling cleanser that makes me feel like I’m looking after and treating myself. I honestly don’t know how you’d use this neat without rinsing afterwards as it suggests, as it leaves a very oily residue. I have to use a hot flannel or I feel like it’s still on my skin. It doesn’t remove all my makeup especially not mascara. However my skin does feel nice afterwards, never tight hence 2 stars. But I won’t be buying this again.
    Love love love!
    I love how it feels on my skin. It removes everything without being harsh at all.
