I always get a little giddy and excited when I get the opportunity to product test new products. Chick Advisor has been super generous this year with product tests and I was lucky to be selected for another one: NIVEA Essentials.
My product test kit arrived with the following:
- NIVEA Creme Care All-In-One Facial Cleansing Lotion
- NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes
- NIVEA Creme Moisturizer
- NIVEA Protect & Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant
- NIVEA Essential Lip Balm
Being the lip balm junkie that I am, I wasted no time snapping my unveiling pic and then I dove right into the NIVEA Essential Lip Balm package to try it out! NIVEA Essential Lip Balm offers up to 12 hours of hydration for your lips with a Shea Butter and Panthenol formula. I found it made my lips softer and more kissable after just one days use. I like that it’s gentle on my lips, has no weird taste to it and offers continual hydration throughout the day. I’ve been hooked since it arrived and will definitely be purchasing NIVEA Essential Lip Balm.
I absolutely love the new NIVEA Creme Care All-In-One Facial Cleansing Lotion! It is almost like a cleansing lotion and moisturizing lotion in one. It’s very thick and creamy but cleanly rinses away. I forgot to apply my day moisturizer the first time I used NIVEA Creme Care All-In-One Facial Cleansing Lotion and I barely noticed. My skin was left feeling soft and hydrated, with no visible signs of drying skin like my normal facial cleanser. It’s suitable for all skin types and has been dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested. It has a nice light scent that is pleasant. I’ve since switched out my regular facial cleanser for NIVEA Creme Care All-In-One Facial Cleansing Lotion.
Cleansing wipes are great for keeping in your purse or for quick makeup removal after a long day. I have used many types of facial wipes but find that most have a very weird scent to them which turns me off after using a wipe or two. NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes are softer than competitor brands and there is no weird, funny smell. Like the other NIVEA skin care products, the wipes smell pleasant and inviting. I liked that the wipes are gentle on my skin and not irritating like other brands with stiff cloths. I found that NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes didn’t rob my skin of moisture, which is awesome and ultimately the need for less moisturizing lotion. My past experience with other brands of wipes has left me with flaky drying skin and the need to lather on lots of moisturizer. I’m very happy with the NIVEA facial cleansing wipe and will buy them in future as needed.
I’m usually quite picky on the anti-perspirant/deodorant that I use and have just 2 brands that I regularly buy. Now after trying NIVEA Protect & Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, I’m going to start buying this brand instead. It was gentle and hydrating on my underarms. I like the scent of the product which is the NIVEA Creme formula, it’s light, pleasant and isn’t perfumy smelling. I thought my current product was doing a good enough job, however, NIVEA Protect & Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant protected me from wetness and odour better than competing brands I use. I even find that my underarms are softer to the touch too!
Last but not least I also had the opportunity to test NIVEA Creme Moisturizer. This is a whole body moisturizer which can be used on the face, hands, body and even on rough spots too. The NIVEA Creme Moisturizer is thick moisturizing cream, which I find takes a little bit of time to fully absorb. Immediately after applying NIVEA Creme Moisturizer my hands felt greasy, but once absorbed there was no greasy residue. My hands were left feeling softer, smoother and more hydrated. I love the compact design of the tin, which is great for carrying in my purse.
Thanks to both Chick Advisor and NIVEA for this amazing #GotItFree opportunity to try #NIVEAMustHaves!
