Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today. 🙂 This post is about this Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 in 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner.
This product contains rose water, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5. It promises to remove even waterproof makeup without harsh rubbing, to cleanse skin thoroughly for a refreshed feel, and to tone and purify the skin without drying it out.
On the back of the bottle it says that the product works like a magnet (!) that removes dirt and impurities. The result it claims to achieve is soft, smooth and healthy looking skin that can breathe.
This product works like a normal cleanser. Massage it into your skin and take it off with a cotton pad or water.
Well, this product sounds like the perfect product for anyone who wears makeup. However, I’ve been using this product since the beginning of the new year, and I don’t think that it keeps any of its promises.
When I use the product with a cotton pad, it’s not very effective. I have to use quite a bit of product to dissolve my makeup!
In addition, when I use this product I have to go over my face again and again and again… it’s not great. What makes it even worse is that the product has a strangely dull feel to it. I don’t think that this is good for anyone’s skin!
Wait, there’s more… this product doesn’t replace a toner. You actually NEED to use a proper toner after you’ve used this product because it’ll leave plenty of makeup and dirt on your face.
This product is better when removed with water, ideally with a hot cloth (although I’d still recommend you use a toner right after). However, there are better products (in the same price range) out there for this way of facial cleansing
What else? This product has a very strong fragrance. Granted, it’s from the rose water and not from added fragrance. However, I don’t like the fragrance, so this is another reason why I won’t repurchase this product. I’ll try to finish it, but I’m no longer interested in trying any other products from Nivea’s MicellAIR range.
If you’re interested, Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 in 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner is available as 200ml. I paid £1.99 at Home Bargains!
