Niod Sanskrit Saponins is something I don’t exactly get but I keep around as the third and final step of my face cleansing in the Summer. I know you’re right? That was all sorts of confusing like WTF am I even talking about.
Niod Sanskrit Saponins is what the Ordinary describes as “an intense cleansing balm”. It’s actually just a weird earthy smelling cream. It’s not a makeup remover but it is something that will get your face a bit more squeaky clean while reducing oil in a major way. Any skin type can use it, even my dry skin! It acts best with blemish prone skin as it decongests pores and removes oil and dirt from them.
It’s Summer and my skin is letting me know that lately. I’m prone to dryness and the AC will contribute to that dryness but Summer def brings more oil product for me.
That’s where Niod Sanskrit Saponins comes into play.
Yesterday I came home and I’m pretty sure when I picked my dog up to get my welcome home kiss she stopped and preened because she could see herself in my forehead. Yeah, the oiliness was happening majorly. It’s been 90+ with plenty of humidity so I feel like I’m shiny AF lately.
I cure this easy enough with Niod Sanskrit Saponins. I remove all my eye makeup with a biphase eyeshadow remover like Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. I follow up with either Clean It Zero or Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Cleansing Oil. After cleansing oil I rinse and use Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Face Wash. After another rinse with cool water I proceed to apply Sanskrit Saponins all over my face and massage in gently. Final rinse with cool water, done!
All that oily and gunk from the day is gone. My face does feel tighter using it but it’s great for smoothing out and removing excess oil! The effect also lasts me 2 or 3 days so I don’t have to triple cleanse with this daily. It’s more like a twice or three time a week thing for me. If you have more oily skin though I’d say use it daily!
It’s funny as this wasn’t really a fab pick for me when I first got it but it’s become something I use quite often in the Summer!
Anyone use it?
