NIOD Voicemail Masque: Voicemail Masque is a night time masque to target visible dullness and compromised skin tone as a result of stress and/or environmental conditions.
Livings cells communicate with one another and this cellular communication is an essential aspect of life and health. Cellular communication breaks down with age and under stressful conditions, and this breakdown directly impairs the youthful appearance of skin, resulting in dullness and a compromised tone. Topical formulations today focus on functions of specific skin cells, but the communication between healthy cells itself is largely overlooked.
Voicemail Masque is a nighttime leave-on masque treatment that fights many of the signs associated with impaired cellular communication. The formula is a suspension of plant stem cells from mountain flowers and narrowleaf plantain, as well as highly-purified polyphenols rich in hydroxycinnamic acid from oregano leaves. The suspension medium is comprised of advanced adaptive silicones that lengthen dermal exposure timeframe, supported by a fractionated spectrum of molecular weight (instead of a specific one) of hyaluronic acid, just as naturally found in the body. The result is skin that looks healthy, well-rested, bright and uniform from the very first use.
History of the Name
The name of Voicemail Masque has a short history of its own. For a brief period of time in the earlier days of NIOD, when VM was being formulated, Gill and Brandon were having impaired communication of their own: they kept reaching one another's voicemail with a near-comical frequency. Much like impaired cellular communication results in a dull, stressed skin appearance, Gill and Brandon's impaired communication through repeated voicemails had resulted in dullness and stress. While no formal solution was ever found for Gill and Brandon to avoid ineffective communication through voicemail, since the focus of VM is improving visible aspects of impaired cellular communication, it was only fitting that the formula was named Voicemail Masque.
Directions: Use twice weekly at night-time only. If used as part of a NIOD regimen, apply CAIS/MMHC first and then apply a thin layer of this masque over the entire face, avoiding direct eye contact. Outside of a NIOD regimen, apply over lighter serums and avoid application of thicker cream formulations. Massage for about 20-40 seconds. Do not apply other products over VM. Do not rinse off until the AM. VM is not recommended for very oily skin types and should not be applied on peeling or irritated skin. Non-comedogenic.
