I know this face wash has been around forever, but I’ve never used it before.
About 2 months ago, I went to my local Boots as I really needed a new face wash. My local Boots only had a small selection of facial cleansers, and this Nivea face wash was on special = easy choice.
Alrighty, this face wash contains vitamin E and Nivea’s patented Hydra IQ, and it aims to cleanse and to rehydrate the skin by supporting the skin’s moisture balance and by reducing water loss.
I’ve used this face wash for about 6 weeks now, and I think it’s OK. The face wash is refreshing, but I find it drying, and it’s not as cleansing as I had hoped.
I also don’t love the rather strong scent. Whilst I generally love scented products, and whilst I would always choose a scented product over an unscented one, this face wash smells much stronger than my shower gels or hair products. It shouldn’t be like this!
I will use up this face wash (and use more facial oil in my skin care to combat the dryness this face wash is causing). But I won’t repurchase it. If you’re interested, Nivea Refreshing Face Wash is available as 150ml for about £4. I paid £2.10.
