A few years ago, almost all of my skincare products were by Nivea. Eventually, I’ve discovered some other brands that I like more, but recently I’ve bought two Nivea products again, a day cream and makeup remover.
Nivea Make up Starter Day Cream
I believe this one is now changed to Express Hydration Primer, but I am not sure if the formula is still the same. Anyway, Nivea claims this cream is instantly absorbed and provides an even and smooth base for make-up application.
The texture is very watery and gel like, easy to spread and really absorbs quickly. It should be applied in a very small amount, otherwise the foundation peels off from the skin and it can’t be blended well. This cream simply does not have the properties of the primer because it doesn’t mattifyes the skin, it doesn’t minimize the pores and it doesn’t make the foundation last longer. It didn’t perform well as a daily moisturizer either. It is too light and doesn’t moisturize enough.
Nivea Waterproof Eye Make up Remover
I wasn’t thrilled with this product either. It wasn’t very successful with removing waterproof mascara and it is necessary to apply a lot of product on a cotton pad and rub it a lot. We know it is not good for a delicate skin around the eyes. The formula is not greasy and doesn’t sting the eyes, and it removes well other non-waterproof makeup.
