Thoughts from Fel, Ro & BW Team:

This is probably one of the most interesting cleansers we’ve used, and we love it for its uniqueness! The texture is a light, creamy texture with a warming, earthy and natural aroma that gives the deepest cleanse without being harsh.

We love the focus on traditional ingredients in the formula, which is why it was almost love at first sight when we first discovered NIOD 😍. There’s so much to take from tradition, and they combine the old with the new to create a wonderful and innovative experience to skincare!

How to Use

Wet face. Dispense a pea sized amount into hands and rub between your palms to form a paste-like lather. Massage gently over your face and rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water while keeping your eyes closed.

This cleansing balm does not remove makeup. Follow up with Sanskrit Saponins after removing all your makeup. It is suggested that you use this cleanser once every other day for a deep cleanse or more frequently if desired.
