A timeout from the real world – Niki Newd Signature Facial

relaxing in Niki Newd Facial

Collaboration with Evergreen Salon / the facial was gifted to me


A while back when I wrote about Niki Newd and their basically edible products, I asked you this: Do you really know what you’re putting on your skin? As in: can you read the ingredient list and understand it.

Well, now I’m asking you this: do you really know what your beauty therapist is putting on your skin? And I can almost bet you don’t. Maybe you’re dreading of going to a facial, especially if your skin is sensitive. You’re nervous of your skin reacting to something. Because let’s face it: a lot of different products go onto the skin in a short period of time.

That is exactly why I wanted to try out the Niki Newd Signature facial. It’s a completely new take on facials. It’s not about some new fancy machine. It’s about the basics. You get the fresh natural ingredients, fresh natural scents and effective yet gentle results.

And at the same time, this facial offers the greatest luxury of all: relaxation.

Niki Newd Signature Facial Review

I went to my appointment on a Monday, after a particularly rough weekend (mentally). Time seemed to slow down, when I stepped into the salon. The atmosphere was calm and inviting. I almost started to do new decoration plans in my head while taking in the beautiful interior design. There were candles burning in the corners and a soothing music playing in the background.

At this point I pinched myself: do I really get to do this as a part of my job? (Well, rarely, so I made sure to really enjoy it!)

What does the Niki Newd Signature Facial include?

The Niki Newd Signature Facial contains gentle skin cleansing with oat and yogurt, honey-lemon exfoliation, fresh mask customized for your skintype, a long and possibly the best facial massage you’ll ever get and as a bonus, you get a hand massage while the mask is doing its magic. You’ll also get to experience refreshing cucumber water and coconut milk on your face. Spoiler alert: it all feels and smells amazing.

It’s also possible to get facial extractions included in the facial. I chose this option, since my skin had some clogged pores. Riikka also managed to treat some very deep pimples I have on my jaw, the very last remains of my acne. Extracting a pimple never feels good, but it hurt less than it usually does and my face didn’t get as red as it usually gets from that.

I’m not sure what I expected from the treatment, but I left floating with happiness and relaxation. All time stopped when I lay on the bed and took in the natural scents of the products.

That’s another thing about this facial: everything smells extra good, because it’s fresh. The scents are basically from food, so you’ll recognize them and there’s something very nice about that. I’m a bit sensitive to synthetic scents and here I didn’t have to worry about that.

What results did I get from the facial?

I left from the appointment with a soft, visibly clean and glowy skin. I actually felt beautiful, even though there were a few red spots, where Riikka extracted pimples. I got rid of some blackheads and pimples, which had been bothering me a while. It always feels so refreshing getting your skin really cleansed. And frankly: I do want to get those kind of results when going to a facial. And finally, as I’ve now mentioned several times (but I can’t say it enough), I felt lighter leaving the salon. I felt calm and happy. Ready for a new week. And okay, already a little addicted to this particular facial.

Being a beauty therapist myself, I could feel that Riikka has done this a long time and the way she applied the products and massaged my face was impeccable. There really was nothing for me to do, except relax and just enjoy.

As I lay there and wondered how I was gonna tell you about this treatment, all I thought was: everyone should try this at least once. I can guarantee you won’t regret it. And: I should book another appointment for the winter.

If you appreciate the fresh natural ingredients and you’d like to leave from your facial 100% relaxed and with a glowy skin – this treatment is for you.

Skincare Blog Niki Newd Review

Do you really know what you’re putting on your skin? Can you read the ingredient list of your favorite products and have a peace of mind on every single ingredient mentioned there?

Because the ingredients are what makes the product. I love pretty packaging, but the inside is what I’m paying for.

Niki Newd Fresh Skincare


Niki Newd Fresh Skincare

When I heard of Niki Newd and their completely new take on skincare, I was instantly intrigued. Niki Newd offers fresh cosmetics, meaning the products are actually made from pure, food grade ingredients.

Just like an orange juice is best freshly pressed – these new luxury products offer that same freshness to the biggest organ of your body. Your skin.

When I go to the grocery store I try and make good healthy choices. I check the product list for sugars, preservatives, wheat and what not. I make my decision based on what the product contains.

Luxury is knowing what you’re eating and being able to choose wisely for your body. And frankly, the same goes to beauty products.

My results using Niki Newd products

I have been using Niki Newd products now for a month (and the soap actually for even longer than that) and my skin is in fantastic shape. My skin has been in a great shape for some time now, but ever since I switched to these products, the very last bits of my acne has started to heal.

If you’ve been a regular reader of mine, you know that I’ve battled with acne. My acne went away with birth control pills, but a few stubborn pimples stuck on my jawline and they have been there for a year. They are quite deep and I can clearly feel them when I touch my jaw. During this year, I’ve just ignored them, being happy that that’s all that’s left from my acne. But after I started using these products, they’ve started to heal. I’ve actually even been able to squeeze one of them out (or some of it), since it came to surface with a white head.  Prior to this, my cosmetologist tried to poke holes in them and squeeze them out and nothing came out.

My skin feels very balanced. It’s clearly loving these products. And I am too – because suddenly my routine is as simple as it gets. I only use the Oatmeal soap (after first removing my makeup with an oil) and then three other products after that, for my whole face.

What’s genius about Niki Newd products is that they are suitable even for the eye area. My lashes and brows get a nice treatment with the Skin Velvet Oil and I’m secretly loving skipping eye creams.

If I’m feeling lazy, I can mix the oil, cream and the mist and just massage that in. Simple. It’s luxury having to do less – and still getting great results.

P.S. You’ll find my special deal for these products at the end of this post!

Niki Newd Oatmel Soap

Niki Newd’s Oatmeal Soap is not your regular soap so you can forget whatever comes to mind with the word “soap”. It’s my favorite product out of all these and what surprised me the most. I can stop looking for the perfect cleanser, because this is it, and I mean it. It cleanses my skin well, but doesn’t leave it dry or oily.

The soap contains rapeseed, coconut and linseed oil, making it very gentle so it doesn’t disrupt the acid mantle. Besides the oils, the soap contains oatmeal and yeast, which are anti-inflammatory. And now I’ve already mentioned all the ingredients. This product contains just five ingredients.

A little goes a long way with this product and one soap lasts for over two months in my use.

Niki Newd Skin Velvet Oil Review

Niki Newd Skin Velvet – oil

Niki Newd’s Skin Velvet is a dreamy oil serum that nourishes the skin with Nordic berry seed oils, camelina oil and avocado oil. It contains lots of fatty acids, which are exactly what your skin would want to eat, if it could choose. It also contains antioxidants such as vitamin E and Q10. All from the oils.

This oil absorbs nicely in my skin without the oily feeling and it leaves my skin radiant. If I was in an absolute rush, I could get way with using just the oatmeal soap and this oil.

And hey – you can now get a free sample of this oil with your order by using the affiliate code ‘CHARLOTTA’.

Niki Newd Skin Cream & Skin Mist – mixing as I go

The Skin Cream and Skin Mist are the first products I’ve used that are meant to be stored in a fridge. That might feel weird at first, but let me ask you this: would you rather have the product be fresh, or to have preservatives?

The Skin Cream contains grapeseed oil, sea buckthorn oil, spring water, beeswax and vitamin C & E.

This cream is one of the first products Niki Newd made and I can understand it’s popularity. It’s a simple product that does what it promises – nourishes and hydrates. It’s the lightest cream Niki Newd has and when you mix it with the Skin Mist the consistency becomes even more lighter feeling (plus you get extra hydration and vitamins from the mist!).

The Skin Mist contains Spring water, lactose, betaine, glucosamine and vitamin C & B5.

What’s amazing about the Skin Mist is that it helps to maintain the moisture balance, but also protect the skin from sun damage and the key ingredient in that is glucosamine. So this product is great especially for summer time. Though obviously the best way to avoid sun damage is to avoid sun and use a sunscreen.

P.S. My favorite sunscreens are listed here.

My combination skin loves this combo. I love that you can mix up the products to suit whatever it is your skin needs. If my skin is feeling dry, I’m using just a tiny bit more of the cream. If my skin feels good and I just want a light hydration, I can use less cream and spritz in more of the skin mist.

Niki Newd Yogurt Skin Mask

Yogurt Skin Mask is a special product, because it’s the original Niki Newd mask based on an old family recipe. It’s has that homemade feel to it, which is nice.

Niki Newd’s masks come in two parts: the powder and the mask water. This ensures the freshness of the mask, because you can mix the mask yourself. That’s pretty common in beauty salons as well, when you book a facial. This gives the mask a nice touch, like it’s made just for you.

The mask contains oatmeal, yogurt powder, potato starch and yeast. The water is pure spring water from Finnish Lapland.

The mask dried down on my face and tightened a little. It reminded me a little of DMK’s Enzyme mask (but in a much milder form). It left my face feeling soft, clean and plump. I used it in a time where my skin felt like it needed an exfoliation and some pampering and the mask did do its job. In all honesty I have to say though, that I did not like the scent of the product, which came from the yeast. Luckily it disappeared when it dried down a little and then it smelled like nothing.

Modern, simple skincare

All in all I’m left with a little awe of the products and the whole brand. The products are modern, they feel personal (well, they are artisan made just for your order) and the whole skincare routine is simply effective. I love the pure ingredients – my sensitive stomach loves oatmeal, but I never knew it could work for my skin as well.

If you’re intrigued about the products, but don’t want to go all in straight away – I recommend trying just one product. I’m sold on the oatmeal soap and my second favorite product is the Skin Velvet. And the best news really?
