NIVEA Sensitive Protect Deodorant Aerosol

Every time I review a NIVEA deodorant it always seems to be the same story. The last one I tried was Pearl & Beauty which I had high hopes for but in the end it didn’t tick all the boxes.

I have tried the aerosol and roll-on varieties many times but it is just something that doesn’t match with my body chemistry. When the new Sensitive Protect deodorants came out, and I read it was designed to help reduce rashes, I had to give it a try. My underarms are usually one of my most painful areas when my skin breaks out with an allergy so I was hoping this deodorant could work some magic.

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
