    • 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

    OK but a bit drying
    I don't consider myself to have dry skin, more combination (oily t-zone and dryer cheeks) but I even found that this made my usually oilier parts feel quite dry and tight throughout the day. I had no problem with the application and the colour, though they felt light and easy to apply however after it has settled my face just began to feel quite tight. My liquid highlighter also didn't sit very well on top of it. It seemed to sit on the surface of my skin rather than sinking in (which makes sense) but it then began to collect into creases which made me look like a had deep wrinkles in that area.
    Not for me sadly
    This just isn’t suitable for medium and darker skin tones as it’s very ashy. Wanted to love it as it’s not a chemical sunscreen and provides protection from HEV/blue light radiation emitted from devices which few SPF’s do but I can’t deal with looking pallid.
    Amazing
    I love it!!! I just got it last week but I already used it a few times and I usually hate the feeling of sunscreen on my face and I never wore it daily until now(which was a bad thing, but I never found one that I liked) and I can say it's really good. Usually, all the sunscreens I ever tried were greasy and I never liked the smell and they were causing me breakouts. This one hasn't caused any breakout and it keeps my skin really matte(my T-zone is extremely oily). It is thick, but it doesn't leave a white cast on my skin. The only downside is that I received the bottle with the dropper not with the pump and I always try to take care when I apply it that it doesn't spill everywhere, but it's really hard with the dropper, it goes everywhere. I know now they changed the package with a pump but I guess they still have some leftovers with the dropper. In any case, I would repurchase it but I would ask for the bottle with the pump!
    Cosmetically elegant but makes me look orange
    I would have loved to love this sunscreen. I am on the hunt for the perfect mineral sunscreen. This one is thin and goes on matte, silky, the texture is really so good I've never had a sunscreen that feels this good on the skin. That's why I was majorly disappointed to notice that this turns completely orange in my skin in about 15 minutes. I look like an orange, it is ridiculous. I have tried it with and without everything, at first, I thought it somehow makes my makeup oxidise but I also tested it without makeup and yup, it is the sunscreen only. The colour is so notable that covering it with makeup does not help at all either, you can tell there is a visible line on my chin that buffing does nothing to. I've had people ask me what's wrong with my face when I wore it. NIOD keep saying that the formula is untainted and the colour is from the ingredients but I really really wish made this without the orange turning ingredient, too! For reference, I am very light-skinned (MAC NC15) and someone with a different skin tone might not have this problem but if you are pale, beware. I usually don't have an enormous problem with the white cast and if I do, makeup is always enough to cover it anyway. But the colour makes this unusable for me, sadly.
    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.
    Repeat purchase
    This has become part of my daily routine. It disappears into my skin with no greasiness and works well under makeup. I haven't had issues with it appearing orange, as another reviewer mentioned, but I can imagine that it could look ashy on darker skin tones.
    Essential!
    I love this product so much! I wear it every day, it goes on smoothly and primes and protects my skin. It sits well under make up and isn’t oily or greasy, and also doesn’t break out my skin which is a problem for me with many other SPFs. An absolute staple!
    Brilliant protection
    Well, what can I say apart from WOW! I am super impressed with Survival 30, have been looking for ultimate protection against so many factors of ageing and not just UVA and I've found it. If you look on the Deciem website it will give you the full low down and what each ingredient does and there is no other product on the market that has complete protection like this against so much environmental stress. It goes on great, doesn't leave a white cast and dries to a matte finish, it gives a fabulous base for my foundation and makes it look flawless and my make up stays put all day long, and I mean all day too, it does shift ! my skin doesn't go only half way through the day, no shine, no need for blotting. I have oily prone acne skin and this product does not affect that whatsoever and keeps my skin matte, but at the same time doesn't dry my skin out. i apply it after my serum and moisturiser and I have no doubt in my mind it is protecting my skin in more ways than one! OK packaging wise the dropper is not good, but I am not marking a superior product like this down for that, as I have simply taken the pipette out of the rubber lid. I place the palm of my hand on the top of the bottle to seal it, shake it and then tip a bit into my hand, replace lid, problem solved no mess. without hesitation, I will be repurchasing. Give it a go if you want protection for your skin against oxygen/ nitrogen/carbon radicals, glycation, pollution, smog, stress, infrared and blue light.
    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.
