Deciem Niod Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate

Deciem NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate

Five Best for Expression Lines 2016

Size: 0.5 oz (15 ml)

Deciem NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate is an eye serum that targets a range of aging concerns around the eye area, from dark circles to crow's feet to sagging lids. With results that only get better the more you use it, NIOD delivers a series of peptides in a special polymer designed to target signs of aging with drone-like precision. Marta found that this water-based formula truly firmed and smoothed her eye area, and we're sure that you'll see great results as well.

Formulated with actives that inhibit fine lines, build collagen, boost micro-circulation and drain under-eye bags, Deciem has created a truly advanced product to address upper and lower eye aging issues. NIOD rounds out this scientifically advanced formula with repairing botanicals including European ash bark extract and darutoside.

Tested for 30 days and approved by Marta:
NIOD could be accused of being a bit gimmicky with its “drone” delivery technology and the name, Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate is a tad self-important. But what really matters is that this is a damn good eye serum. It firms. It really does.

Although water-based NIOD feels like an oil and, usually, I’m not wild about oils for the eye, but this product completely won me over. It is not greasy, absorbs quickly and is easy to smooth around the entire eye area. Of course the effects are the most important and I found that NIOD kept my lids and under eyes smooth and firm. My eyes are in fairly good shape, but NIOD did more than maintenance — six weeks in, I’m seeing an improvement and know that I will continue to use this eye serum until then bottle is finished.

So what’s with the drones? NIOD encapsulates its peptides in a special polymer that is supposed to target the fibroblast before releasing the active with drone-like precision. The peptides themselves are interesting as well. There’s a new one called methyl-glucoside-6-phosphate and it is credited with boosting collagen (although there isn’t much independent information about it). Ditto Decapeptide-22, a chain of 10 amino acids.

I am on more familiar ground with palmitoyl tripeptide-38, which is the newest power peptide from the makers of Matrixyl, goes by the name of Synth’6 and is supposed to stimulate six major constituents in the skin matrix. And there are several neuro peptides for softening those expression lines including dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate.

More exotic, but ultimately doing a similar job, is snail toxin. Or, to be more precise, a synthetic form of cone snail venom called mu-conotoxin Cniiic. I’ve only come across this once before in a product called TruActivs Tritoxin. Another new find is n-acetyl-glucosamine. This occurs naturally in our bodies, occupying the space in the skin between cells, and is responsible for maintaining the skin’s barrier abilities.

The actives just keep on coming. Worth a call out is darutoside, which comes from a plant called siegesbeckia and is an anti-inflammatory and skin repairer. I was intrigued to learn that polyglucuronic acid is part of a family unknown to science until the 1990s. Described as a mere film-former in some cosmetic formulations, there seems to be much more to it than that, including collagen biosynthesis and skin firming (source). One of the more unusual botanicals here is European ash bark extract (Fraxinus Excelsior). If you are short of dinner party small talk over the holiday season then you can always drop in that this ash tree changes its sex from year to year. More relevant for this review’s purpose, it is a wound healer.

I should point out that there are a few PEGs here, alcohol, acrylates and polymers (but down the list and not obviously used as fillers), as well as the usual suspects in the preservative department. The good far, far outweighs the bad and the quality and quantity of actives are impressive, especially at the price. NIOD is a great new find.

    After I read the what you said that the Deciem had AHA in it that explains how smooth my eyes have become. I have always been afraid to use those kind of products under my eyes but this is not harsh and a WINNER! Thanks Marta

    Hi Lisa, the Deciem has some AHAs, which can make the skin more sun sensitive, and you could reserve this one for PM and use Correct at day time.

    Marta- I am alternating this and Correct by am/ pm . Would you recommend one product over the other for my PM routine?

    Hi Eve
    You could use them together - I would put the Correct first. But my personal preference is always to alternate - either morning or night or alternate days. Less is usually more in my view.

    Hi Marta, I've been using the YBF Correct serum and really like it, but wanted to up my game with an additional product, and recently ordered the Niod FECC. Would you recommend layering the YBF over the FECC, for maximum effect, or alternating them? In part I'm wondering if the FECC would even allow the YBF Correct to penetrate.

    I love this eye serum!!!. I'm about to order my second bottle. I only have fine lines around my eyes, so this serum address this issue perfectly. It absorbs very quickly and you can instantly see a difference in your fine lines.
    As any other serum, you're NOT suppose to use it alone. So, once it's absorbed, I follow with an eye cream.

    Hello I am looking for a cream that will correct fine lines under my eyes. I have had several laser but still overall I can't say that I'm satisfied with my lines under my eye. What would you suggest for this?

    I was looking for an eye serum/cream that would address creepiness on the eyelids as well as puffiness under the eyes and dryness. Unfortunately I have not found this product to be helpful with firmness or puffiness. It is an outstanding product for dryness, haven't found another eye product out there that has worked as well for my sensitive skin with dryness so I would give it a 5 for this but the other areas it isn't effective for me and I have been using this for over 6 weeks. I am most disappointed this has not proven a game changer for me as it has several of the other reviewers. If anyone has any other suggestions of products that would work to firm the eyelid and reduce under eye puffiness I would sure appreciate it!

    I've had my bottle of this forever. I love that it's a tiny bottle, easy to pack, and the dropper dispenses a tiny drop, which is all that you need. It instantly lifts and plumps the undereye area. This effect can be extended for many hours if a good moisturizer is used on top. On it's own, it offers little to no hydration and the smooth look wears slowly away as the day progresses. Having used it once or twice daily for at least 6 months, I can say that there are some long term results. It has helped with crows feet, lessening the depth, and undereye wrinkles and cross hatching. There are so many ingredients! I prefer simpler products. I think some of those botanicals are thrown in to make it look more important. How much effect can a weak ingredient that's been diluted with dozens more have, particularly within a meager 1/2 ounce? Fortunately there is a strong enough concentration of the active ingredients to produce an effect.

    Hi Kim, I think both might be a good idea. I use the Fractionated a few times a week, but find it a little drying on its own for every day. I think Pam (see review below) has the right idea by alternating with the Hylamide. But if you had to choose - given puffiness is an issue for you - then I'd go with Fractionated as it does a good job of tightening/firming.

    Hi Marta,
    I am searching for new eye product. I've tried many over the years but always come back to Correct...until recently, when I had a bad reaction to it and had to discontinue using it! Would you recommend Deciem NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate or the Deciem Hylamide SubQ Eyes or both? My 45 year old eyes biggest issue is overall puffiness, lack of firmness, and dreaded under-eye baggage. Fine lines of course too, but I am more bothered by the bags. Thank you!

    I alternate this Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate with the Deciem Hylamide SubQ Eyes. My 64 year old eyes have had multiple needs (sagging upper lids, crepey undereyes, dark circles, puffiness, dehydration, loss of elasticity). I'm really happy with both products. I've gotten improvement to my upper lid contour - it's been subtle, but noticeable in photographs. Also, I no longer have ANY puffiness underneath my eyes which has never happened to this degree with any other eye product. Note - this improvement even though I love salt, don't drink nearly enough water and don't always get enough sleep... I'm still working on eliminating all of my undereye darkness - the look is improving but I still must wear concealer. The dehydration/crepiness and cross-hatching under my eyes has improved and is noticeable especially when I smile. During the day, I find that I still need added "slip" under my eyes for concealer, so I sparingly apply Ildi Pekar Eye Cream or something similar on top of the Deciem eye product. Jury is still out re whether there will be big improvements to elasticity under the eyes, but I'm very pleased with and encouraged by the other results so far.

    At 49, my eyes are in pretty good shape other than a bit of hollowing out underneath, so I wasn't sure what to expect, really. But after a few weeks of use, I did start to notice that my under-eye area felt firmer and didn't seem quite so shadowed. I read somewhere else that this serum is best on dynamic lines, so I've started using it on my upper lip and dabbing it anywhere else I'm noticing lines starting to form, such as my upper forehead and left cheek. Although this product is a little high for the amount you get, I only need a tiny drop for my eyes and another if I want to do a few targeted areas. I can see this bottle lasting six months, which makes it a good value.

    I love this product! It truly does an excellent job of firming and smoothing my very crepey and loose eyelid skin. I've tried most all of the heavy hitter eye creams for this concern (AQ, YBF, ExPurtise, SkinOwl, E'shee) and I consider this to be the most effective product thus far, and given the price point, it really can't be beat. Their hand cream is wonderful too!

    It is a good eye contour and has helped with dark circles, but it leaves my skin way too dry .... Anyone tried to add something on top of it?

    Brilliant catch Pam! They have used the INCI rather than Sederma's marketing name. But you are right this has all the components of Beautifye - an ingredient that I wrote about in my predictions for 2015:

    Niod is on its way to us from Canada as we speak and so should be in the shop before the end of the week.


    January 26, 2016


    Marta - this eye product appears to contain "BeautifEye" although it's not identified as such in the ingredient list. I've been searching all over for a good eye serum containing it!! BeautifEye is made by Sederma and contains Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract, Darutoside and Glycerin. I see these 3 ingredients are present in the list. Do you know if they perform similarly when incorporated separately into the formula (or are they using the Sederma ingredient and just not using the trademark name in the ingredient list)?

    Hi SusanDe, yes indeed! We wrote about the crazy Mars stuff and Nanoblur and I must admit it did make me think twice about trying out the Deciem lines. But so far, so good and, like you, happy to give them the benefit of the doubt. If anyone hasn't read about Euoko and Nanoblur, here are some links:

    Hi guys. Just a heads up; Deciem are linked with EUOKO!!
    Brandon Truaxe co-founded both companies. Google "are deciem the same as euoko" and you should get a CosmeticsMag article telling you about Brandon Truaxe and his ventures with Euoko, Indeed Labs (which made Nanoblur) and now Deciem.
    Let's hope they don't end up on Mars. I do like the looks of some of these products, though and there are ones at multiple price points and I'll probably try some anyway, because curiosity. Maybe Truaxe was the sensible guy at Euoko before selling to investors and those intergalactic rose crystals. I'll give the benefit of the doubt - for now.

    I actually ordered NIOD's serum - will let you know. But the composition is similar, however NIOD has some heavy hitters.
    Hylamide's HA serum is THE BEST! No usual "dryness". My sister loves it too!

    January 13, 2016


    Hi Oksana, it's worth looking at Niod and Sub Q's ingredients side by side. Here are Sub Q's - I would not say this is similar to the Niod serum reviewed above:

    aqua (water), propanediol, perfluorodecalin, glycerin, perfluorohexane, aminobutyric acid, polymethylsilsesquioxane, perfluoroperhydrophenanthrene, adipic acid/neopentylglycol crosspolymer, nylon-12 fluorescentbrightener 230 salt, albizia julibrissin bark extract, polyvinylalcoholcrosspolymer, myristoylnonapeptide-3, dipeptidediaminobutyroylbenzylamide diacetate, hydroxyethylacrylate/sodiumacryloyldimethyl tauratecopolymer, fucusvesiculosus extract, vp/vacopolymer, dimethicone/vinyldimethicone crosspolymer, polyacrylatecrosspolymer-6, epigallocatechin gallatylglucoside, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, isohexadecane, gallyl glucoside, propylgallate, polysorbate 60, caprylyl glycol, hexyleneglycol, amodimethicone, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, benzylalcohol, pentylene glycol, xanthan gum, darutoside, dehydroacetic acid, chlorphenesin, phenoxyethanol.

    interesting, that DECIEM's sub company Hylamide, has an identical line of products. Anti Age sub Q is superp btw. but the Sub Q Eyes is much similar in composition to the product described in review, and at about 1/2 the $$. interesting company!

    I love love love this product! It is breaking new ground and promising to ACTUALLY help us #Brandon Truaxe# Miracle in a bottle

    I am only 31 but I have very thin skin under my eyes and have developed fine lines and wrinkles this product literally plumped my under eyelid up within 3 days granted the effect wears off after a long day but I am sure I will continue to see improvements in this as time goes by.

    On a similar note I have very sensitive skin that has literally reacted to any anti-ageing cream I've tried in the past this is the first serum to go on and not cause any redness or irritation DREAM!!!

    I would definitely recommend this product and Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Complex as Well as Photography Fluid all three are GROUND BREAKING products that will probably change your cosmetic life.
