Niomi Smart’s Morning Skincare Routine:
- I start by massaging my Golden Jelly Cleanser onto dry skin and use the Bamboo Cloth soaked in warm water to gently remove the product. The jelly-like texture melts down and turns milky when mixed with the water. This gets rid of any last traces of dirt or makeup – it’s so refreshing! I always use a dry towel to gently dab the skin dry, rather than rubbing harshly.
- After I’ve cleansed, I follow with the Super C Moisturiser. It’s my morning ritual to give myself a little face massage while applying the moisturiser. Focusing on releasing tension around my jaw and temples but being extra careful around the eye area. One tip I’ve always carried with me, passed down from my grandma, is never to pull the skin around my eyes. Once it’s stretched, it will never go back – it’s just too delicate!
- If I feel my skin needs an extra boost of hydration, which I do often find happens when the weather turns cooler, I use my Multi V Elixir Oil over the top of the moisturiser once it has been fully absorbed. I warm a couple of drops between my fingers and lightly dab over my skin. It’s is a non-greasy oil, so it works well underneath makeup and creates a natural skin barrier for the day ahead.

We love – How quick the oil soaks into the skin, not leaving you greasy
So, we have to admit we’re always sceptical about oils as they can leave you feeling heavy and greasy. But this does just the opposite, this lightweight formula gives your skin all the hydrating needs but without you feeling oily. The Elixir soaks into your skin almost instantly leaving you looking glowy but with an almost matte finish. The elixir is packed with 12 oils to quench the skin’s thirst for hydration and nourishment, minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and improve skin’s elasticity plus to replenish the skin’s moisture and restore a buoyant glow.
