I recently was sent samples of a great new (to me) skincare brand called Nia (Not into Aging).
Nia was designed not only to stop early signs of aging, but to help skin withstand all the stressors that come its way like getting little sleep to looking down at your phone. The product include patented NIA-114 strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and keeps it radiant.
Here are the products in the line:
Nia Fully Charged Serum X Moisturizer ($39 USD)– This potent, serum-infused moisturizer is a supercharged dose of high-impact hydration and nutrients delivered in one simple, power-packed step. Formulated with skin optimizing NIA-114™, this lightweight, breathable formula strengthens the moisture barrier, smoothes fine lines, brightens skin and fights visible signs of aging.
What I think: I love that this is two steps in one. Especially in the summer when the humidity makes it uncomfortable to have too much on my face. The one thing is that this is a bit sticky on, especially the first time I used it. I shook it up the second time and it was much better. I can see myself using this every day for brighter skin.

Nia Fake Awake Triple-Action Eye Gel ($36 USD) — This triple-action gel is a power nap for tired eyes, instantly brightening, smoothing and de-puffing. Light-reflecting optics visibly diminish dark circles, while a blend of skin optimizing NIA-114™ + lifting agents help reduce the look of fine lines. Formulated to absorb in a flash, with a ceramic tip applicator to cool on contact, so you can fake awake and get on with your life.
What I think: I love eye products that brighten the eyes as they are giving skincare benefits! I do notice that my dark circles look lighter and brighter. The ceramic tip applicator is pretty neat, it does cool tired eyes!
Nia Glow On Demand Energizing Illuminator ($28 USD) — This unique, double-duty formula features a breathable matrix of light-reflecting ingredients that brightens and illuminates, restoring natural glow, while a fusion of caffeine and ginger instantly rev up dull, lifeless skin. Skin optimizing NIA-114™ rehydrates, soothes and smoothes on contact.
What I think: I really like this. It gives a really soft glow. I have been using it as a primer under my makeup. It smooths my skin so my foundation goes on easily and looks flawless. And a bit of the brightening shines through.
Nia Tech Neck Line Smoother ($36 USD) — The repeated motion of looking down at your phone throughout the day can actually cause neck lines. Keep your neck in check with this lightweight serum and on-the-go massage roller that glides on gently to instantly firm and smooth skin. Skin optimizing NIA-114™ + a blend of lipopeptides help reduce the look of horizontal lines and fortifyskin against Tech Neck.
What I think: I am pleasantly surprised with this product! I though it might be sticky like the serum/moisturizer, but it’s not. I love the roller, it feels cool against my skin. I can apply the product and help it absorb in once step. And my neck feels a bit firmer with each use.
Nia Wash + Glow Hydrating Cleansing Foam ($22 USD) — Wash away the signs of long days + late nights. Soothing, silky-foam cleanser removes makeup + impurities without stripping skin of moisture to reveal a fresh-faced, natural glow.
What I think: This hydrating foam cleanser removes all of my makeup without drying it out. It is easy to use and cleanse day and night. I like to keep it in my shower. My skin is glowing and ready for skincare and makeup once I am done!
Nia Sunday Detox Whipped Clay Peel-Off Mask ($36 USD) — This first-to-market purifying foam-to-peel mask is a double detox for skin showing signs of a long week or epic Saturday night. Rich clay mousse draws our dirt and debris from pores to reduce the appearance of blackheads, then dries to a peel-off mask to lift away dead skin cells for smooth, radiant skin. Infused with skin optimizing NIA-114™ + exfoliating fruit extracts to reset skin for the week ahead.
What I think: This is a really fun mask! I’ve never used a peel off clay mask before and didn’t know what to expect. It comes out as a mousse and is a bit thin. I apply plenty so that I can remove it easily. It only takes about 15 minutes to dry down and peels off quickly. My skin is soft and my pores are clearer.
