This nivea product contains the coenzyme Q10 which is required by cells for the formation of energy. This in turn, enables cells to perform their tasks to the optimum. Applying this to the skin, allows cells to rejuvenate and prevents degeneration. For a price such as this, it is extremely effective. I have been using Nivea on and off for years but still always turn to this brand as it is trustworthy and gentle on the skin. In terms of antiaging, it does work if used twice a day along with the night cream. The cream is light and immediately sinks into the skin without leaving a residue. If too much cream is applied, flakes are formed which can become messy and annoying.
This cream comes in a combination or sensitive skin although I personally used combination even though I have sensitive skin (the combination one was the last jar left on the shelf) as Nivea products always tend to be gentle on the skin. It also has moisturising properties too which makes an excellent old time rounder for wrinkles.
Will buy again and again.
Moisturiser is something that I always have in the house especially during the colder months as I suffer with dry skin on my face. I have tried a variety of creams in the past and have a collection of different ones ranging from light day creams to more richer creams, I really do have something for every occasion. However despite my extensive collection of moisturisers I am always keen to try something new, so when I received a few sample sachets of Nivea Q10 Anti Wrinkle Pore Refining Day Cream I was keen to give it a try.
As I have said I received several sample sachets of this cream, the moisturiser came in small rectangle white foil sachets, on the front of each sachet is a picture of the pot of moisturiser, just above this is written "Pore Refining Day Cream" and just under this "Q10 Anti Wrinkle". The sachet also informs you that this cream is suitable for normal to combination skin and contains SPF 15. The back of the sachet contains various information about the moisturiser and the ingredients. The information is limited, although I do feel that it tells you what you need to know, it is clearly written and easy to follow.
Nivea Visage Q10 Anti Wrinkle Pore Refining Day Cream is described as being fast absorbing and works in harmony with your skin, I was really hoping this was going to be the case as I do find some moisturisers can be a little heavy to apply before my make during the day so a fast absorbing light cream was just what I needed. The idea of this particular cream is that at the same time as moisturising it helps to reduce the appearance of pores in your skin and the fast absorbing and non greasy cream means that when applied to your skin does not clog your pores at all. Nivea Q10 Pore Refining Day Cream also contains Ceratine which helps to reduce and fight the appearance of wrinkles so by applying this cream the idea is that you will reduce the appearance of pores in your skin and at the same time fight the appearance of wrinkles, with the SPF15 helping to protect against sun induced wrinkles in the skin. If all of this works then it sounds like the ideal moisturiser for every day use. The cream itself is plain white in colour and has a lovely light fragrance to it, it reminded me of baby lotion, the fragrance is definitely subtle and not one that would be too powerful to wear every day. Before I applied the moisturiser to my face I rub a tiny amount between my fingers just to see what it was like, the cream had a cool feel to it and did not feel greasy at all. As I rubbed my fingers together I was impressed with how quickly the cream absorbed into my skin just as promised and within seconds the cream had gone, the skin where it had been felt lovely and soft but there was no trace of the cream at all, it seemed that the cream was going to live up to its promises.
I decided to try the Nivea Q10 Pore Refining Cream in the morning before applying my make up as this for me would be the ideal time to use if should I et on ok with it. After carrying out my normal facial routine I squeezed a sachet of the cream into my hands and began to rub it into the skin on my face, to be honest I think I could have got away with using half a sachet and making each one last twice as long as one sachet of the cream was rather a lot. Despite the fact that I had used too much of the cream the first time I tried it I was still surprised at how quickly it absorbed into my skin, again it had the same cooling effect as then I had tried a small amount of the cream, within a few seconds all of the cream was successfully rubbed into my skin, it left literally nothing behind and there was no greasy residue at all, as soon as I had applied the cream I was able to start applying my make up, there was no sitting around for a few minutes waiting for it to soak in as with other creams I have tried in the past, with this one it absorbed straight away. Once fully absorbed I was very pleased with how soft it left my skin feeling, there was no dryness or tightness at all, the delicate fragrance could be detected slightly but this was in no way over powering and actually left my skin feeling fresh.
The Nivea Q10 Pore Refining Day Cream is dermatologicaly tested and said to work with your skin, this certainly seemed to be the case as I have tried the cream on several occasions now and have had no problems at all, it has not caused any irritation despite using it regularly. For me with the cream the main thing was that it worked as a good light day moisturiser and also the reduction of pores was an added bonus. I do not feel I have used the cream enough yet to see its full benefits, however I do think that any open pores I had have been improved by the use of this cream, I feel that if I continue to use it I will notice quite a difference, this is not a problem I generally suffer with, but do have the odd pore which could do with a bit of work and I certainly feel that the Nivea Q10 is helping with this so I will definitely be continuing with the use of it. Wrinkles aren't a problem I have but it is good to know that by applying the cream to my skin I am helping to fight and prevent them from appearing in the future.
As I have mentioned I actually received my Nivea Q10 Pre Refining Day Cream as a free sample, however I have since had a look around to see where this product is available, I have found it in a variety of places such as online and shops including Superdrug and Boot. In my local Boots this particular moisturiser is sold in a 50ml pot for £9.99, personally I do think this is quite a lot to pay out for a moisturiser compared to other brands, however in my opinion it is worth the money, you only need a small amount of the cream at a time meaning that a pot of this will last for quite some time. Obviously the amount you use is going to depend on the individual, however generally I think a small amount would be plenty for most people making it long lasting and worth the money, it is just the initial paying out for it that would put me off.
Overall I would definitely recommend Nivea Q10 Anti Wrinkle Pore Refining Day Cream, it is an excellent moisturiser, personally I like the way it almost instantly absorbs into your skin and does not leave it feeling greasy at all, once absorbed my skin felt lovely and soft which lasted all day. I found that I could quite happily apply this cream before my make up in the morning and did not have to wait for it to soak in I could start applying my make up straight away. In terms of price, I would say this was reasonable due to the quality of the cream and also the fact that you only need a small amount at a time, however I do think that it is a little expensive to pay out for in comparison to other brands. I would definitely recommend this cream to anyone looking for a lovely light fragranced cream suitable for everyday wear.
I started using this cream and initially liked it. After two days my neck became very itchy and inflamed. After 3 days I was covered with hundreds of sore raised spots all over my neck and face. Dr said it was a severe allergic reaction to the cream as it was the only product I had been putting on that part of my body. The rash is itchy, sore, angry and revolting! I am now using a strong steroid ecsthma cream to get rid of it. Don`t use this cream - its not worth the agony!
I recently swapped from a Nivea moisturiser as I have been more and more conscious of my desire to prevent the development of small lines as I rocket towards my thirties (alright, towards 27). You could argue I'm being overly paranoid but I think that prevention is always better than cure.
Unfortunately I'm also on a budget so I tend to be stuck in the high street brand region and as always any way of saving a bit more whilst achieving what I want to in terms of the quality and abilities of my products is all to the good - so I decided to try Nivea Q-10 Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream as it was on offer at approximately £4 cheaper than I had seen it before.
The worry with buying products on this basis is that if you do like the benefits then you end up having to either resort to a cheaper alternative when you've run out or pay the full going rate, but I will say straight away that after about a month my first pot is still going strong.
This cream ticked my main boxes in that it is anti-wrinkle and also has an SPF 15 benefit.
Boots have it on their website at present for £9.99. The write up for the product on their website goes like this:
"With age, the skin's ability to produce energy within its cells is reduced. As a result the skin's defence is not as effective, new wrinkles appear and existing wrinkles deepen.
Nivea Visage Q10Plus Anti- Wrinkle day Cream now has 100% more Coenzyme Q10. With double the strength of Q10, it supports the skin's energy metabolism from within, continuously fighting wrinkles. For an even better defence against new wrinkles, the formula gives improved protection against UVA/UVB damage with SPF15.
Q10 is a natural component of your skin which actively works to keep it firm; however levels of Q10 decrease with age and the skin becomes less able to renew itself.
* Visibly firmer and tighter skin in 2 weeks
* Helps protect the skin against further loss of elasticity
* Beautiful smooth and supple skin"
The page on the Boots site does include "how to use" instructions, which typically advise use with the full complement of the Q-10 range - night creams etc. My budget hasn't stretched that far yet so I should set out from the outset how I use this product: I use it to keep the moisture in my skin straight out of the shower or bath and then when it's soaked in this is the base for my day's make up.
The cream comes in a white cardboard box with the product instructions and marketing artwork on it. Inside is a small white pot with a slight curve to both the base and the lid. The pot contains 50ml of product and is typically understated as with most Nivea products.
For me, SPF is a must, so that's a tick straight away. I have been using this product for about a month now and as I said am still on my first pot; I find that a little of this product goes a long way. I find the consistency to be a little less "souffle" thick than the Nivea product I used previously, and when this is first applied it melts onto the skin very quickly. I find that you really do not need much of this product but that said I do not think it has ever made my skin feel greasy.
As this product feels thin and loose when it first goes on I think that it takes a good few minutes to be worked in and soak in naturally before my skin is ready for the foundation I wear on top of it, as I feel that it would compromise the texture and balance of the coverage I would get. This is a bit annoying early in the morning before work but if you take time to get a cup of tea you're pretty much ready to crack on.
Obviously at this stage I can't comment fully on the promise to avoid wrinkles but this product has now been a part of my regime for a month and I have noticed that a) it provides a good base for my make up and does not exaggerate my skin's tendency towards being shiny in any way, b) I have always been prone to blemishes and pimples and lately I have noticed that I barely have any. This may be in part due to the combination of this with my Max Factor Foundation / Serum 2-in-1 product, but I think that if a moisturiser is not suited to your skin then you will see the effects no matter what you put on top of it. Therefore, in that sense I am very pleased with the product.
I am amazed at the longevity I'm getting from the pot. I would say I still have roughly half the product left, which makes the value for money better. I should stress that unless I'm changing my make up and going out again on an evening I only use this product in the morning, not at night.
There is one downside about this product; it does have a clinical smell which I really can't get over. This does not linger once the product is on and used but first thing in the morning when you apply it does grate on my nerves! That said, the formula clearly works, so it comes down to personal preference if this is an issue - for me it is certainly not enough to make my stop using it.
In conclusion I am very glad to have tried this product and I would say that I would definitely continue to use it if I can find a source of it being on offer as opposed to full price, although if not I could be tempted to try another similar product in the meantime.
Love It! At 29 and someone who suffers quite spotty skin, I am always worried about trying new creams. I was using Youth Code by Olay which worked ok, still got spots around my cheeks etc but this was something I'd grown used to over the last 15yrs! I only wanted to buy Youth Code if it was on offer so I actually ran out! So in the meantime I used my boyfs face cream in desperation...Nivea Q10 for men. It felt quite nice...so i thought i'd give the Q10 men face wash/exfoliator a go! That too felt fab! So...I decided to try the Nivea Q10 day and night creams for women! I haven't looked back. I'm on my 2nd jar and my skin is just AMAZING! I use the mens face wash scrub everyday as it doesn't dry my skin like previous washes have and hand on heart - not one spot. The tone of my skin is amazing and the redness etc on my cheeks due to spot after spot is all but gone! Even my boyf keeps saying how great my skin is looking ! I don't know how much is down to the cream but looking at the ingredients, it might be something to do with the Q10 thig being an anti oxident (Can't spell!) All I want to say is THANK YOU NIVEA Q10! I'm not sure if you are the reason for my skin feeling and looking so fresh but I can't think of anything else it could be :-)
I have just finished my jar and can't wait for the weekend to go and get another. I love the Nivea range because I suffer from eczema and unlike many of the 'anti-wrinkle' preparations Nivea seems to be gentle on my skin. It is a very comforting cream and a good moisturiser but I do have dry skin so it might not suit other skin types.
I have bought this product for some time now and it is my first choice for a day cream. The reasons are: it doesn't upset my skin, my skin seems protected by it and despite the odd outbreak of eczema I do get complimented on my skin (I think it helps to keep the wrinkles at bay), the price of course is very competitive.
I have used the different Nivea products all my life and it is a brand I trust. The packaging on this product is a bit more than I like. I suppose they feel they have to box it to make it stand in line with other anti-wrinkle products.
I would recommend this to other ladies to try - men as well, why not we all want to look good!
I think I am such a fan of Nivea because my mum used it when I was growing up. I have sensitive skin and it's one of the only moisturisers that I have been able to use without getting a nasty reaction. Usually, Nivea Visage Anti Wrinkle Q10 plus day cream will cost you up to £10 for a 50ml pot. However, just today (12.6.09) I picked a pot up in Tesco for just £5.00, a saving of £4.97 on the usual price. Needless to say I was pretty pleased with my purchase!
I have been using this cream for as long as I can remember. They changed the formulation a year or so ago, and the scent. At first I didn't like the new scent....fragrances make me nervous! But I'm used to it now and haven't had any type of reaction.
The cream is packaged in a really nice ceramic pot, which can be recycled. The cream is white in colour and has a really good texture, neither too heavy or too light. It absorbs quicky and doesn't leave a greasy feel on the skin. Skin feels really fresh and moisturised. It contains an SPF of 15 so your skin is nicely protected from the sun.
And then, of course, there is the important bit....does it live up to its anti-wrinkle claims?? I for one have to say yes it does. It claims to actively defend against new wrinkles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines already on the skin. I am 38 and not wishing to blow my own trumpet, I don't have too many wrinkles at all, I am really happy with my skin.
This cream actually now contains 100% more of the active ingredient, co-enzyme Q10 than it used to, so is even better at keeping wrinkles at bay. The science behind it is that Q10 supports the skins energy metabolism from within to continually fight wrinkles. It claims to visibly reduce fine lines within hours, minimise expression lines within 3 weeks and deeper wrinkles in 4 weeks.
This cream works. I think it is a real beauty steal even at it's full price.
I really wanted to like this product, because I think it's important to get across the point that it's the ingredients that can have a positive effect, not the price tag ! That said, it didn't really do much for me.
Q10 is one the buzz-ingredients of the moment to help combat the signs of aging and it does so by helping to protect our skin from free-radical damage ( ie. it acts like an antioxidant ) to enable somewhat healthy collagen and elastin production. Our bodies naturally slow down the production as we age and so it's important that we do what we can to help prevent further loss to this production.
So I love how ingredients like this can be used in creams for everyone's budget, but my skin saw no visible change. However, please note that I'm in my thirties and use other forms of antioxidants such as vitamin C type products and therefore my skin was perhaps not lacking in ingredients that will help make a difference. However, for those of a certain age ( concerned with aging on the skin ) who use a very basic skincare regime and would like to help their skin look as good as it can on a budget, I would almost certainly give this a go. I'm impressed with the ingredient Q10 in general so, I'd recommend a product like this regardless of the results I had with it.
I used Nivea Visage Q10 for a couple of years, it was inexpensive and my skin seemed to like it. I used to buy mine from an ebay shop for about £3 a jar. That's alot more reasonable than the shops, the last time I couldn't get any on ebay I bought some in Superdrug for £6.99 which still isn't alot but I prefer the bargain £3! The jar is 50ml I think, and oddly for such a cheap moisturiser is made from white opaque glass not plastic.
The cream itself feels soft and light and smells lovely, a fresh fragrance. It used to go on easily and provide excellent moisturisation but I found one problem with it.
I don't know if they changed the formula or if my temperamental skin had just had enough of it but suddenly it didn't absorb at all and I was left with an oily sheen on my skin after applying.
I've got quite dry skin so this surprised me and the oily sheen it left behind made my make-up seem to literally slide off my face within a very short time.
I continued with it for a few more months while experimenting with other creams and not liking them but it just wasn't right for me anymore, I didn't like the fact my face and neck always felt oily and not moisturised so as soon as I found another moisturiser I did absorb well I switched.
I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem, I don't personally know anyone else who uses Nivea Q10 but I recently tried it again with a bit I had left to see if my skin had been the problem and it still didn't absorb.
I couldn't recommend it.
i have been using nivea antiwrinkle day and night cream q10 since it first came onto the market a couple of years ago, i was sceptical at first about the claims but at under £7 each i thought if it didnt work i would not have wasted a lot of money.
i was really impressed with it, it has nice consistency and doesnt leave your skin greasy, it comes in a nice little ceramic pot which you can keep or like me recycle them.
i did at one point change to oil of ulay which was terrible and gave me spots, so i went back to nivea, im very impressed with the results, over 2 years constant use its knocked 15 years off my age which has to be a good thing lol.
i have sensitive combination skin, and have found no problems with it what so ever, in fact it improves your skin, its fantastic on mild dryness, making it more silky to the touch, and i wear the day cream under makeup.
i have to give this 5 stars and its well worth the £7, and you dont have to use a lot so the 50ml tubs last you ages ( im on my 3rd tub of day, and my 2nd tub of night in two years). and i like the fact its in a tub so you can get all the cream out, unlike some that use pumps
Nivea Anti wrinkle Q10 cream
Fightign the inevitable first signs of old age is something i am very keen on. Since i first noticed my first few wrinkles a good few months back now i have been keen to try any wrinkle cream that claims to help me in my struggle with these age lines.
I was initally drawn to the particular cream in Boots due to the reason i have always at some point in my life used nivea and also the price of this partilular tub was just under the £7 mark which in my view was a pretty good price for something that caimed to hep with the signs of aging.
I have now used up my first tub of this cream and have since moved on to buying my second tub as i was so pleased with the results. i always use cleanerser and toner and after cleaning and toning i would then apply this Nivea Q10 cream. I suffer with combination skin where parts of my forehead are plagued with dry skin but other areas such as my nose area is that much more greasy.
This cream howevere seemed to work well with both of these aspects and didnt make the greay bits greasier at all - which is what i find happening with other cream i have used int he past.
Nivea Q10 cream helped me with my dry patches and i find when i am continuiously using this cream i am not as plagued wit these dry patches as i once was.
The cream itself is very white in colour and fairly light in consistancy. I tend to not need too much to cover my entire face well in cream and make my skin feel very nourished and moisturised.
there is no real fragrance that comes when using this cream apart from one fresh smelling aroma which is not at all florally. It hink becuase it is pretty much fragrnace free this is why the cream is so gentle on the skin. I have fairly sensitive skin too and this cream affected it not int he bad way but in a good way adn i felt no ill affects from using it on my sensite areas (still on my face though).
i really think this product works well. i have not seen any more wrikles appear on my face and i hope they will stay well away. the few wrinkles that are there actually do not seem as prominent as they once did. this may just be me imagining it as before i wouldnt have ever really believed in anti wrinkle cream but i do belive this oen made my skin look and feel a whole lot better. Who say only expensive creams do the trick. this one is a winner for me!
I have used this product for a couple of months and I like the creamy fast drying creme. However, It doesn't really seem to make a difference in my wrinkles and it leaves my face feeling oily but yet I have dry patches. It may just be my skin so I am not saying not to try it out. Things work differently for everyone! At first it lightened my face but now it is looking kind of dull. My everyday routine hasn't changed. I am still looking for that one great creme so if its out there and you have it..let me know!
I've used Nivea Visage Q10 Wrinkle Control Creme for just over a year now. I have tried numerous skin care lines and moisturizers, and I find this to be one of the best skin creams I've ever used. For me, it does minimize the appearance of lines and improves my skin tone, but more importantly, I find it to be a moisturizer that lasts throughout the day. Many moisturizers claim to be "continuous" and they're just not. I used to have dry skin but this cream truly adds continuous moisture. It feels dewy, smooth, and looks more glowing than after I've used other mosturising products. I particularly liked the texture of this cream -- it felt smooth and refreshing, not oily or heavy. I have sensitive skin, but it didn't irritate my skin as some creams do. It seemed to help the dryness that I continually battle. It?s also light and so doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. In fact, it is quickly absorbed to leave you feeling healthy and glowing. There is a light perfume to the cream but I again found this pleasant and refreshing. However, for those of you who prefer non scented moisturisers, this may be something to bear in mind. The cream comes in a blue pot that is quite attractive and also sturdy. It won't get damaged if you knock it and due to the slight thickness to the cream, it's unlikely you'll spill any either. I also think the price is very competitive in comparison to moisturizers offered by many 'designer' make up brands and, from my own experience, I have found this to do just as good, if not a better job at keeping my skin soft and smooth. As for the claims that it reduces wrinkles - I have chosen not to comment on these. I am only 20 years old and therefore fortunate in that I don't have wrinkles yet. One thing I can say though in support of this argument is that after using this cream my skin often feels slightly 'tighter' and more toned. So, to sum up:
the product is easy to apply, not too scented, and I like the blue jar! And my boyfriend says my skin is as smooth as a baby's bottom!
Supports your skin's own repair mechanism and effectively reduces the depth and visibility if wrinkles / Your skin's firmness and elasticity is noticeably improved leaving it sift and smooth to the touch /
