    • Why it's Cult

      An advanced way to provide skin with UV protection (alongside a host of other benefits) NIOD’s Survival 30 is a protective formula that helps support the skin’s defences against the everyday environmental onslaught. With a lightweight texture that belies its efficacy, this formulation features next-generation technologies to offer broad protection from oxygen radicals, pollution, smog, stress, infrared and blue light, as well as mineral-only SPF30 (PA+++) UVA and UVB protection.

    • Description

      Give your skin advanced protection and help it survive the stressful onslaught caused by modern lifestyles with NIOD’s Survival 30, a networked protection system with technologies that help support skin’s natural defences. Despite its lightweight texture, this formulation offers a broad selection of advanced technologies – including purified lutein from marigold flowers, purified deep sea algae and anti-inflammatory yeast-derived superoxide dismutase – which work to deflect free radicals, pollution, smog, stress, infrared and blue light. In addition to this, Survival 30 offers mineral-only UVB and UVA protection of SPF30 (PA+++) via silicone-dispersed zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. 

    • How to use

      Shake well before use. Apply to face liberally before UV exposure. If continued UV exposure is expected, to maintain protection, reapply every 2 hours or after material water exposure, towel-drying, swimming or extensive perspiration. Suitable for all skin tones. Lighter skin tones (I, II and III within the Fitzpatrick skin tone scale) should use a protection factor of at least SPF 30 whenever UV exposure occurs regardless of UV index. Avoid contact with light clothing as the carotenoids in this product can cause staining.

    NIOD Survival 30 Reviews

    Current favourite SPF
    For the most part, I really love the formula of this SPF - it is definitely quite thick and I don't think the packaging is a suitable dispenser (hence the 4 stars and not 5). However, I have combo skin and most mineral sunscreens become greasy on me later in the day. This one has a really nice demi matte finish that stays the same throughout the day. There is a hint of white cast when I first put it on the skin, but after it's spread, I don't detect anything. I'm a light-medium tone, so if you have darker skin, Survival 10 or 20 would be more suitable. From a texture point of view, it reminds me a lot of Hourglass Mineral Veil primer. This just has a way better ingredient deck. I also think it applies best following a facial mist.
    Best SPF ever tried
    I saw the other reviewer's 1-star review and was hesitant to try. The "all physical PSF" in the product description really appealed to me, so I decided to give it ago. I don't like the dropper bottle, but the product spreads so easily on my skin and didn't give me white cast unlike other SPF would. I don't have sensitive skin, so maybe that's why I like it so much. Would definitely repurchase.
    Favourite sunscreen
    Survival 30 is for me the best mineral sunscreen I have tried. I enjoyed the formula and especially the finish, which was a luminous matte/satin finish on my skin. At no point during the day did it break down and become oily. I found it sat well under any makeup on me - better than most sunscreens. I wore it as the last step in my skincare, after serums and a moisturiser.
    Bummer
    I was so excited to try this and find something that I could wear all day every day to protect my skin, as oxybenzone brings me out in a rash so most SPF daily moisturisers are off-limits. I think I got my hopes up looking at the serum-dropper bottle that the formula would be silky and serum likes to match - but this is one of the thickest, claggiest SPFs I’ve ever used (and I’ve used plenty of mineral block) which certainly gave me a white cast. It made my face itch like mad it was so sticky and broke me out. I understand that in an SPF performance definitely has to come before desirability and I’m sure my skin would be much better with than without it in the long term (which is why I still gave it three stars), but it’s so unpleasant to use that I just can’t bring myself to wear it. Hopefully, the formula won’t expire before my next beach holiday as I could probably suffer through it in that context, but not daily and absolutely not anywhere near makeup.
