Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe 2 In 1 Rose Water Cleanser & Toner

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!

Nivea Shower Creams – Free Time & Harmony Time

Hi there! Today’s post is about Nivea‘s Free Time and Harmony Time Shower Creams. I’ve had these 2 products in my stash for quite some time, and I’ve finally gotten around to giving them a try.

Nivea Free Time smells wonderfully refreshing. The aloe and star fruit fragrance is gorgeous. I also love the formula because it’s not drying at all. Well done, Nivea!
Nivea Shower 1
Nivea Harmony Time was a nice surprise. I thought it would have a random rose scent, but it smells of sweet almond milk. It’s absolutely lovely! As expected, the shower cream formula is gentle on my dry and moody skin.

I think Nivea did a great job with these shower creams. I’ll continue to use them, and I can definitely see myself repurchasing both shower creams. Nivea Free Time and Harmony Time Shower Creams are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Nivea Nourishing Honey Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Nivea‘s Nourishing Honey Mask for dry skin.

This face mask contains honey extract and almond oil. It promises to nourish and soothe dry and stressed skin, and to make skin feel hydrated and nourished.

Nivea recommends this face mask be used once or twice a week. Just apply it to your face, leave it alone for 10-15 minutes, and simply remove any leftovers with a cosmetic tissue.

Since this mask doesn’t need to be rinsed off, I’ve decided to use it as a night cream (one sachet contained enough product for a full week). In addition, 7.5ml is a huge amount for a single-use leave-on mask, and I think that removing and discarding most of the product after a few minutes is just wasteful.

Is this mask any good? I think this mask is perfect for dry winter skin. Since I’ve used it for 7 consecutive days I am happy to report that it has temporarily transformed my skin from dry to ultra-nourished. The effect lasted for almost another week after the last application. I’m looking forward to using the 2nd sachet as a night cream as well. I’ll save it for the next cold spell!

Nivea‘s Nourishing Honey Mask for combination skin is available as 2x 7.5ml. I paid £1 (Poundland). I would recommend this mask to anyone with dry skin because it really works! If Poundland still stocks these masks, I will buy a few more!

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream & Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream

Hi there! I’m reviewing 2 shower gels today – Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream and Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream.

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream is an old favourite. I hadn’t bought it in years (and I don’t even know why), but it was on special when I saw it the other day, and so I picked it up! This shower cream is fantastic. It feels amazing on the skin, and the soapy orange fragrance is a delight. It’s a bit old-fashioned, but it also reminds me of cheese cake (with mandarin segments in it). Great stuff!

Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream was new to me. But I’m glad I finally bought this shower cream because it feels great on my skin, and the dark chocolate fragrance is lovely. This is the perfect shower cream for this time of year.

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream and Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

Merry Christmas!

Nivea Refining Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Nivea‘s Refining Peel Off Mask for combination skin. 🙂

This face mask promises to exfoliate skin gently, to remove sebum and to reduce shine for several hours.

It works like any other peel-off mask. Just apply it to your face, let it dry for 15-20 minutes, then peel it off.

How’s the mask? I think it’s one of the best peel-off masks I’ve ever used. It removes dead skin cells as well as grease and grime with ease. It’s really powerful!

Nivea‘s Refining Peel Off Mask for combination skin is available as 2x 5ml. I paid £1. I will definitely go back to Poundland to buy more of these masks!
