♥ Your Skin Will Love You For It ♥


Nivea has always been known across the globe for producing some of the most magical skincare products.With these two latest releases, you can say goodbye to those multiple products sitting in the back of your bathroom drawer and hello to fab flawless skin.

Nivea Q10 CC Cream $19.99NZD is a product I was dying to try, so I was extremely excited when I arrived home to find a cute wee package sitting on my front door step. With skin-perfecting mineral pigments this product will help to create that flawless face we have all dreamed of. With being in my early 20’s ageing is one word I dread the thought of, so it’s with some comfort to know whenever I wear this product, that ingredients such as Co-Enzyme Q10 and Creatine are working together flat tack, to fight and reduce any wrinkles from within.

Nive Pure Effect Thermo Daily Warming Cleanser $9.99NZD, was a product that caught my attention from the many media reviews I had read.Having oily skin myself, I’m always on the lookout for something to help prevent or keep at bay, that excess oil that decides to sneak onto my face every now and then. This blemish busting formula has been created to nourish the skin whilst working to gently remove any impurities that may be hiding deep within.

With the beautiful NEW Nivea duo above, you will leave the house every morning feeling on top of the world with a boost of new found confidence. Gone are the days of skincare routines feeling like a chore and hello to fresh,fab,clear skin.

♥ So go on girls treat yourself to these, your skin deserves it. ♥

Below you can find my overview and rating’s on these products

Nivea Q10 Plus CC Cream-

Coverage: Being a CC Cream the coverage is light yet deceiving,as the appearance of any imperfections or redness are diminished in an instant. The texture is so soft and velvety with only a small amount of product needed, as a little goes a long way.

Colour: At first I thought the colour would be a little too dark on my pale Autumn skin, but it literally fades and customises to your skin tone within a few seconds.

Hydration: My skin looked and felt like it had received a big drink of water. The darkness under my orbital bone (eye area ) especially appeared lighter in colouring and my skin all over had a luminous glow – feeling plump and ready to partay!

Scent: Scent is normally enough to sometimes put me off a product, as I don’t like to use anything with too much fragrance. This smells clean, fresh and fun which is exactly what you want when trying a new product for the first time.

Packaging: Clean Crisp and naturally intriguing, the have really summed up the product with this packaging.

Overall Rating : 7/10

Nivea Pure Effect Thermo Daily Warming Cleanser

Hydration: Your skin wont feel stripped or too squeaky clean with this cleanser, your left with plump,baby bum soft skin.

Scent: Floral-soft and elegant, the scent isn’t overbearing and suits the product to a tee, making for a relaxing application.

Texture : Creamy, silky and smooth this felt amazing and refreshing to apply. The perfect pick me up for those 6am wake up calls.

Packaging : I found looking at this product was exciting within itself, the packaging displays a lot of vital information which for me mentally created a picture of the results I would feel, before I had even put it on my face.

The Result : With always being sceptical of trying new skincare since I found love with my current routine, I was taken by surprise with this cleanser. Having had no breakouts after use, (which sometimes can happen when using something new) my skin felt plump,smooth, clean and looked amazing. 

Rating : 7.5/10
