      Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream

      The Product
      = = = = = =
      The product I am reviewing is Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream which is suitable for dry and sensitive skin. I actually only decided to try this day cream as I was impressed with the primer and the facial wipes from this range. This range was on offer in my local Co-Op store so I took advantage off the offer and purchased a few things, this being one of them. The cream is a day cream, and intensively moisturises and nourishes for a soft skin feeling. The cream also helps to protect skin from sunlight, induced environmental influences and premature ageing with SPF 15. The cream contains Almond Oil which gives your skin the intense moisture it needs to support its natural balance. It also contains Hydra IQ which supports your natural moisturisation via the skins own water channels and promotes moisture flow between skin cells. I wasn't really sure what to expect from this product as I have been using a Vitamin E cream from The Body Shop which I find amazing. I wasn't sure if this was going to live up to the standard of my previous face cream, how-ever I did expect some good results from it. The cream comes in a cardboard box which is white in colour but does have some pink on it which represents that this is from the 'Dry and Sensitive' skin care range. The Nivea logo is obvious on the box as this is quite large and appears on the top and the front of the box. On the front of the box is clearly states what the product is in large lettering and what it contains. On the sides of the box it gives you a little information about Nivea and also lists the ingredients and how to use the cream. On the back of the box it tells you a little about the cream and how it works to keep your skin moisturised. The cream itself comes in a plastic tube which has a lovely, smooth and slightly soft finish to it. The tube stands on its light pink lid. There is really no need to keep the cardboard box that the item came in as it gives you the same information on the back of the tube such as application and information about the cream. The pink screw screws off to reveal a small round hole in which the cream dispenses out of.

      Price/Availability

      Although I purchased this from Co-Op you can also purchase it from Superdrug and Boots store and online. Prices may vary; how-ever the current price in Boots for a 50ml tube of the moisturiser is £3.19. Full price is £4.19, so they currently have £1.00 off the product and other products in the Nivea range.

      Using the Product
      = = = = = = = = =
      Apply the cream to a cleansed face by gently massaging in small circles, avoiding the eye area. For optimal results use the whole range of Nivea Daily Essentials products for dry and sensitive skin. I cleansed my face, followed by using toner and then got ready to apply the moisturiser. I did not use Nivea cleanser and toner and used my previous brand which is from The Body Shop. I removed the lid from the tube of moisturiser and gently squeezed it to dispense some of the cream. I ensured that my hands were clean before doing this. When the cream dispensed I have to admit that I was surprised at the consistency of the cream as it was somewhat thicker than the cream I had previously been using. Due to this, I didn't dispense too much and though that I could easy dispense some more if I needed to. I applied the cream as directed on the back of the tube in circular motions. The cream felt a little thick on my face to start off with and it felt rather thick to massage in circular motions, how-ever as the cream warmed up it was actually easier to do this.

      I applied the cream all over my face and at first I wasn't too sure about it due to the fact it was a lot thicker than my previous day cream. I was hoping that because the cream was thick that it would be really moisturising to my skin and that I would have super soft skin in the morning. The cream has a nice light, fresh scent to it which is the thing I love about Nivea products as they normally always smell so clean and fresh. After applying the cream my skin felt moisturised and it had a nice glow to it. I did, how-ever think that it felt slightly heavy on my face and this wasn't something that I was really used to. You do need to be careful with how much cream you apply as I think it would look rather greasy if you applied too much to your face, hence why I only use a little bit at a time and dispense more if needed. I went to bed as normal and would check the results the following morning upon waking. When waking up I went to the mirror and looked at my skin. My face looked healthy and moisturised. When feeling my skin with my hands it felt soft, how-ever I don't think that it felt as soft and as moisturised as it did in comparison to my other day cream that I was previously using. I continued to use this product morning and evening over the next few days to see what difference it made to my skin and although my skin did feel smooth and soft, it still didn't appear as moisturising as my previous day cream. Although the cream was quite thick I did get used to this when using the cream on a regular basis.

      Overall Opinion
      = = = = = = = =
      I wasn't really sure what to expect from this product as I have been using my previous day cream for quite a few years now as I love it and think it does a brilliant job of moisturising. I did have high hopes of this product as I have been using a few other products in the Nivea range and have been impressed/pleased with the results. My sister also told me that this was quite a good product to use. I only purchased it along with some other Nivea products due to them being offer in my local Co-Op store. I found the cream easy to apply, although I have to admit that I am not too keen on the thickness of the product as I found that this made it feel quite heavy on my face, despite only using a little of the cream. The cream does a good job of moisturising and it did make my skin feel very soft and smooth, how-ever I didn't think the results of the cream were as good as my previous brand from The Body Shop. In terms of value I think the cream is very reasonable and is perfect for people who can't afford slightly more expensive face creams. The product was kind to my skin and didn't cause any irritation and didn't cause me to break out in any spots either. For me this cream felt too thick so I am going back to my previous brand. If you can't afford expensive face creams then this is great as it does moisturise and soften.

        See Review

        I have been actively trying to sort out my skin on my face as it has been quite bad over the last few years. My skin is really dry and flaky and gets sore easily. I had been using a water based cream from the chemists to try to keep it moisturised but it was not working enough so I went out for a look round the shops to see if I could find an oil based one to try and found this Nivea cream in Savers.


        The cream is named as being a Rich Day Cream so I thought this sounded like a good idea to try out on my extra dry skin. The cream comes in a small tube which contains 50 ml. It cost me about £2.50 to buy so not really expensive seeing as I was just trying it out first.


        The cream is really easy to squeeze out, you can just squeeze a tiny dab of it onto your finger tip which makes it easy to work out how much to apply and not end up putting too much on. I have been just applying enough to cover my face and not to feel greasy, it has not taken much at all. The cream is easy to work in, it feels nice and thick and smooth to rub in. After applying I found that my skin felt really soft and supple and this lasted right through the day. I also found it easier to apply make up to my skin especially eye brow pencil as it glided over the top of the skin and left a nice line. The cream has a nice smell to it, not perfumey or anything, just a mild smell a bit like baby lotion.


        The cream contains Natural Almond Oil and Hydra IQ and it also has SPF 15 which is a good thing to have.


        I have been using this cream now for about three weeks and am still on the first tube. My skin is so much better than it has been for years now. I just apply it in the morning after cleansing and use a different one at night. I would recommend this product if you have a really dry skin but I expect you would need to test the product first to make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A product not to be overlooked

        Nivea is generally a brand I trust when it comes to skincare. I know the products will not irritate or dry my skin, and they are not a company I would ever associate with false claims/advertising. No Photoshop for these guys. My current moisturiser is the Daily Essentials, Rich moisturising day cream, which specifies it is for dry/sensitive skin.

        A 50ml tube costs around £5.39 and it's a product widely available in supermarkets, chemists and online. £5.39 is what I'd consider the low end of the market, compared to the skincare big guns such as Keihls, Elemis, Dematalogica etc - but that's still nearly £6 of hard earned cash. Is this product any cop?

        The packaging would certainly suggest so. This product comes in a white box, with a pink or blue strip on it depending if you want the light or rich cream. This cream has a pink strip across as it is the rich cream. The cream itself is contained in a tube, with a pale pink lid.

        The cream itself is a pearly white colour, and has a rich thickness to it's consistency. You don't need a lot to cover the face, although it's easy to squeeze too much out if you aren't careful. Any remaining cream I use on my hands. It has a wonderful fresh smell to it, similar to the pure cotton Yankee candles, and also smells a little like dove soap. It is very easy to rub into the skin, and I usually apply this moisturiser about 10 minutes before applying my foundation.

        Claims:

        *For Dry and Sensitive Skin
        *Enriched with Almond and Calendula Oil
        *UVA & UVB Protection
        *Skin is nourished, moisturised and protected
        *Dermatologocally approved

        What I like is, this cream sinks in well and does not leave my skin feeling sticky (unless I have used too much). It also has an SPF 15 in it, meaning protection against harmful rays, which is a great base for my foundation which contains SPF 30. Although it's the "rich" alternate in this range, it's not at all heavy or overbearing, or even greasy as you may expect. I have used both the light and rich moisturisers from the range, and actually prefer the rich cream, which is tailored for "Dry and sensitive skin", which is what I have.

        Overall, I would recommend this to those who are not looking for an anti-wrinkle properties, but just to give the skin a good drink. If your skin is extremely dry and flakey, you should perhaps go for a stronger medicated product to heal the skin. But, if your dryness is just moderate then I would definitely recommend this, as this won't cause further dryness or irritation. It's also a product I would recommend if you don't wear any base make-up on your face, and just wear a moisturizer, as the refreshing feeling does last quite a while.

        For just over a fiver, I really can't fault this moisturiser. If you use it wisely, it will go along way so you will definitely get your moneys worth. It feels nice on the skin, keeps it hydrated and makes a great base for my make-up. I will definitely be buying again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great product.

        When I was in Dublin, I ran out of my usual moisturiser and when my OH mum went out to look for it, she couldn't find the same one so returned with this one, I was all excited because as you know by now, I love to try out new things!

        --------------
        THE PRICE
        --------------

        The price of this is around the £4.00 mark for 50ml of moisturiser.

        In my opinion, I actually find this quite expensive for 50ml, don't get me wrong it is a good moisturiser but £4.00? come on!!..

        -----------------------
        THE APPEARANCE
        -----------------------

        The moisturiser comes in a box which I seen for around 10 seconds, then my OH took it downstairs and put it into the bin, nice of him wasn't it? :\

        The tube it self is attractive, white and pink being the main colours on it.

        On the front of it is the Nivea logo, underneath that is details about the moisturiser.
        On the back of the tube is more information on the moisturiser along with other bits and bobs ( website address ect.. )

        The lid is a very light pink in colour and to use you simply twist it off.

        -------------------
        THE PROMISES
        -------------------

        The moisturiser I have is meant for dry and sensitive skin.

        Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Rich Moisturising Day Cream is meant to intensively moisturise and nourish your skin leaving it feeling very soft. It also contains a SPF of 15 which is a bonus, this will help protect you from sun damage and premature skin ageing.

        The moisturiser is enriched with natural almond oil and calendula extracts, this helps support your skins natural balance.

        The moisturiser is also dermatologically tested and approved!

        ---------------------
        MY EXPERIENCE
        ---------------------

        To use the moisturiser, simply take of the lid and apply the moisturiser to a cleansed face, gently massage in circle shapes!

        MY SKIN TYPE: My skin can be very dry at times so I do need a good intensive moisturiser, my skin is also very sensitive.

        The cream is white in colour and the cream is quite thick and rich in texture.
        I thought this was going to be a greasy heavy moisturiser after seeing it was very thick and rich, but I was surprised when I applied this to my face and found it to be very absorbent and very light feeling.

        I only needed a tiny blob on each part of my face and it went a long way and my skin did indeed feel very nourished! When I looked in the mirror I also noticed that my face seemed to look more dewy and glowy..I instantly looked a lot more radiant and awake so this was a bonus!

        After a few minutes of being on my skin was extremely soft and felt a lot more better. The dry skin around the nose area was gone straight after applying, and when I took of the moisturiser later on my skin was still soft to touch!

        I did find when first applying this that it stung, but my skin is fine now..I think this was just because I had been using my other moisturiser for so long and changing products made my skin quite sensitive.

        I have only had this two weeks but only have a quarter of the moisturiser left, this being down to applying it all the time because it makes my skin feel so good! I know though if I was sensible and didn't use it all the time it would last a very long time.

        I also suffer from eczema on my upper arms, it isn't severe but sometimes will just come up and it is noticeable, I found rubbing this onto my arms where the eczema is really helped it, it wasn't really noticeable and my arms felt a lot more better.

        I recommend this and once I have money and can afford to buy it, I will invest!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Worth the money!

          The one thing I use daily and without fail use (particularly since I have gotten older!) is a day cream. I always apply if as soon as I've washed my face and I always apply it under make up too. I like good stuff and I do need to use it as I suffer with sensitive skin and spots etc and as well as that as I am ageing and I am getting laughter lines and flipping wrinkles!

          I purchased this in Boots and it cost me £3.99 for my tube and I have been using it daily now for a few weeks!

          The Packaging:

          Light pink oblong box and on the front I am told it's 'New Soft Formula' Nivea Visage Rich Moisturising Day Cream 'Intensively nourishes 24h and protects for a soft skin feeling' and that it contains almond & calendula oil and uv filters and that it's for dry and sensitive skin and the size of the tube inside is stated which in this case is 50ml. Other information on the box includes telling me a bit about the product, directions on how to use it are given, ingredients and contact details for Beiersdorf are listed (the manufacturers). The tube itself that the cream is in is white and plastic and it has a twist on/off light pink cap to the bottom of it concealing a small hole. Again like on the box I'm told what it is on the front of it and on the back of the tube I'm told the same information as I've stated is on the box too! Nice enough and informative packaging this all is!

          A Bit About The Product According To The Packaging:

          Dry and sensitive skin needs special moisturisation, nourishment and protection, because it usually lacks moisturising elements and resistance against eternal factors to stay soft and smooth all day long. Nivea laboratories developed the Nivea Visage Rich Moisturising Day Cream especially for the caring needs of dry and sensitive skin.

          Nivea Visage Rich Moisturising Day Cream is a rich, fast absorbing formula that gives dry and sensitive skin all the moisturising and smoothing elements it needs to maintain its natural balance:

          Enriched with precious lipids - Almond and Calendula Oil - the formula nourishes the skin intensively and provides it with needed moisture.

          With UVA/UVB filters, it helps protect the skin from environmental influences (UVA & UVB protection) that result in sun induced premature skin ageing.

          Using It:

          Well the cream itself is white and glossy and a little of it goes a very long way indeed. As you apply it, it does have a very slightly greasy feel to it but it really is very simple to apply and absorbs mega quickly (within seconds) with ease. It has a very light floral smell to it and it really isn't agitating as your using it.

          It is so gentle it is really suitable for all over the face including up and over the eyes and over open pores and spots etc.

          So it sinks into the skin incredibly quickly and is easy to apply. It leaves skin feeling very soft to the touch and it really isn't greasy at all and therefore suitable for putting under make up if you wish too. Not only does skin feel soft to the touch it feels really hydrated from within as well and more sort of flexible! Over days of using this as well not only have I found that the feel of my skin is great when I'm wearing this but I have found that the condition of my skin overall is very much improved and more radiant and I haven't noticed any extra conditions turn up and nothing existing on my face is annoyed either!

          Verdict:

          I think is excellent value for money and makes my face feel really comfortable when this is on it! Easy to use and wear and it really does give a rich and lovely base for make-up and costing about £4.00 a tube this offers excellent value for money and it really does last a long time!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            More maintenance of good skin rather than remedial

            I just read a (bad) review about this product regarding its claim to help sensitive skin. I have to say, as others have said to me, "sensitive skin is complicated and can be caused by a range of factors". That is the truth, although difficult to accept because it's not especially helpful. People are often disappointmented at the lack of solid advice, help and explanation for what many people find a problem.

            Sensitive skin with regular (possibly extreme) flare-ups should seek professional help and ezcema is a skin condition that should use specialised products. Nivea Visage Rich Moisturising Day Cream, I'm sure, was not developed for specialised skin conditions, although it does state it's for 'sensitive skin'.

            "Sensitive skin" is a really broad term and thus also a vague term - it doesn't tell anyone why the skin is easily irritated, which is the most important aspect when trying to figure out how to solve the problem. For any cream to state it works for sensitive skins is actually quite risky.

            I know my skin is comparatively thin and thus isn't able to hold too much water for very long. This dehydration causes my skin to become easily irritated, because it can no longer protect itself as well as it would were it at its best. The immediate solution? For me, straightforward moisturisation (hydration) and some kind of 'oil' to seal it in. Over the longer term? It's about helping my skin to regenerate (thicken it up again) and nourish it. [I'm trying a variety of night creams]

            Fortunately, for me, Nivea have got it in the right proportion here. Other creams have either been too heavy (leaving me with a splattering of acne) or too light (and leading to another minor flare-up of blotchy sensitivity).

            This Rich Moisturising Day Cream is more for people without complications and for use in conjunction with sensible skincare e.g. don't over-exfoliate, protect your face in more extreme environmental conditions (e.g. windy, cold, hot, dry, polluted etc). Ideally, it's for people with more mature normal/combination skin - I moved on from their Oil-Free Moisturising Fluid. I'd say it's for people in their late-twenties and early-thirities.

            The UV filters are also really important to me here, because I know that some UV sunscreens can cause sensitivity over time, but having used Nivea's moisturisers with UV filters for over 10 years it's one that I trust.

            I use this in conjunction with Nivea's Refreshing Cleasning Lotion, a 'Boots Rose Water and Glycerin Toner' and Nivea's Regenerating Night Cream (and occassional use of Olay's Three-Point Cream). This combination of products suits my combination skin during my early-30s.

            To conclude, I know for sure that in a few years time, or if the weather gets colder or drier, I would need to switch to an even more nourishing cream.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A nice light moisturiser

              I am always on the look out for a good face moisturising cream, I absolutely loved Difinity by Olay but really can't justify spending that much on a face cream especially in these credit crunch days! I have tried a few others and have always gone for ones that are supposed to be good for stopping the signs of aging. I have now decided that actually I am not going to worry about my laughter lines or crows feet I am just going to use a moisturiser that feels good and most importantly is cheap! I found this one in good old Wilkinson's and decided to give it a go, so did it come up to scratch or did it send me running back to part with more money for a more expensive one?

              HISTORY

              Nivea was born in 1911and combined the works of 3 German men, Oskar Troplowitz, Isaac Lifschutz and Paul Unna. They invented the first long lasting skin cream and named it "Nivea" which in latin is "Nivus" meaning snow white.

              In the 1930's the brand was given a facelift and they also came out with their first suncream along with a 2 weekly weather calendar! More products also came out in this era including shaving cream & shampoo. The war years were very bad for the nivea brand even though they tried to distance themselves from the Nazi image of Germany at the time the brand was snubbed by most countries that were fighting Germany at the time.

              By the 1950's the nivea brand was back on the up and enjoying the new interest in women's fashion. The 60's saw a revolution in skincare and a tan was a must and nivea was still keeping up with the trends with good advertising and marketing. Even with more and more competition nivea still stand by their core product and though the packaging changes the high quality brand stays the same.

              PRODUCT STATEMENT

              Nivea Visage rich moisturising cream provides dry and sensitive skin with all the moisturising and smoothing elements it needs to maintain its natural moisture balance. It intensively nourishes the skin, provides it with moisture, helps protect it and leaves a soft and smooth skin feeling.

              PACKAGING

              The cream comes in a nice 50ml tube, which also comes in a box, I would gladly describe the box but me being me I threw the box away! From memory it was a plain white box with the Nivea logo on the front. The tube is your basic bog standard stands up on the lid tube. The lid is your basic screw top and the cream comes out nicely from the hole, the tube has the Nivea Visage logo in the famous navy colour, the writing on the front is in a burgundy colour and it states that this cream contains almond and calendula oil and also UV filters.

              USING

              The one thing I actually do like about Nivea products is that distinctive Nivea smell, it always reminds me of summer for some weird reason! This product does have that signature smell but it is really subtle and you have to sniff really hard to notice it.

              The cream itself is pure white in colour and feels quite light to touch it doesn't feel at all greasy or oily as I have found some of the cheaper face moisturisers to be. The really good thing about this product is you really don't need to use a lot at a time one small squeeze seems to get enough out to cover the whole face (well mine anyway!) It covers the face very easy and you don't have to rub very hard or long to get it absorb. The directions state to gently massage into the skin using circular strokes but to be honest I have to get up so bloody early in the morning I just tend to rub it in and be done with it!

              After applying my face really does feel soft and smooth all day and I have no dry patches, it also doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or greasy but really nice and smooth. It is also gentle enough to use around the eye area and does help reduce those shopping bags under my eyes.

              I have been using this for a while now and although it doesn't make any claims to get rid of wrinkles my skin does feel really healthy and more importantly soft and smooth.
              I should also add that this product has not caused any allergic reaction to my skin and I can be a little sensitive flower!

              INGREDIENTS

              Aqua, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Dicaprylyl Ether, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cyclomethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Prunus Dulcis, Calendula Officinalis, Tocopheryl Acetate, Titanium Dioxide, Trimethoxycaprylylsilane, Tapioca Starch, Glycine Soja, Sodium Carbomer, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Methylparaben, Trisodium EDTA, Diazolidinyl Urea, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Geraniol, Limonene, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hydroxycitronellal, Benzyl Salicylate, Linalool, BHT, Benzyl Benzoate, Citronellol, Eugenol, Benzyl Alcohol, Parfum.

              PRICE

              As I said I picked this up at Wilkinson's and it was on special offer at £3.49 I have looked around and seen it for around £4.50- £5.50.

              WOULD I USE IT AGAIN?

              Yes I would! It's quite cheap and basically does what it says on the tin! (or tube) It leaves my skin feeling soft and healthy and personally I feel that's half the battle with a moisturiser. I can certainly say I won't be running back to the shops for a more expensive one and will stick with this one (until the credit crunch is over!)

                Disadvantages

                great moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin

                I was given a set containing some of this Nivea visage rich daily moisturising cream for Christmas, and although I’ve only been using it a couple of weeks I have noticed a big improvement in my skin. I was previously using Boots own brand, which, although it did the job, was quite heavy, and left my skin looking a little bit greasy.

                ~About the cream~

                Nivea make several moisturisers, the only one which I had tried before was their original moisturiser (the one that comes in a dark blue pot), and I found that far too heavy for my skin, so I was at first expecting this to be the same – especially as it’s described as ‘rich.’ The tube states that the product contains ‘the skin’s own hydramine’ whatever that may be, as well as Aloe Vera, which provides intensive moisture to leave your skin soft and supple…sounds good…

                ~Packaging~

                The product comes in a 50ml tube, which makes it a handy size, small enough to fit in your handbag, but not so small that it’s going to run out a week after buying it. The tube is predominantly white with a hint of pink, and a few shiny silver accents, which make it, look a little bit more expensive. I don’t think the packaging is anything special, but as they say, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

                ~Using it~

                The cream is white in colour and has a pleasant, yet subtle smell. The nearest thing I can think of to describe it, is like baby lotion. It glides over the skin easily, and isn’t too thick (something that surprised me), so it makes it easy to rub in. It absorbs into the skin quite quickly – there’s none of that massaging for five minutes to get rid of white traces that haven’t absorbed into the skin, that you get with some other creams!

                ~Results~

                Immediately after applying the moisturiser, my skin feels incredibly soft, almost silky to the touch, although it does take a while to lose that tacky feeling. I suffer from dry, sensitive skin, and this causes no irritation at all, and leaves my skin feeling moisturised all day, even the dry patches I tend to get on the sides of my nose. It is also really good under make up, as I’ve found in the past, it can be difficult to apply make up as some moisturisers leave your skin too greasy. I was very impressed with this, as I wasn’t expecting huge things from it.

                ~Price~

                As I said, I received this product as a gift, but having checked out the Boots website, I can tell you that this costs £4.78 for a 50ml tube. I think that price is quite good, given the quality of the product, but you may be able to find this cheaper if you shop around.

                ~Overall verdict~

                I really like this moisturiser, and will definitely buy some more when my tube runs out. Don’t be fooled into thinking it will be heavy on the skin, just because it’s described as ‘rich’, as this actually gives a lovely light, non-greasy feeling. Recommended!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Nivea haven't got it right this time!

                  I got a lot of samples of Nivea Visage samples at the end of my 5km run for Race for Life, way back in May.

                  Having just found them in the back of a cupboard after a big sort out, I thought that I would give them a try and hopefully find some new products that will help moisturise my skin. Being a big fan of the Nivea body lotion I was expecting great things from the Nivea Visage range.

                  - Nivea Visage -

                  This is a line of Nivea products that have been specially formulated for facial skincare.
                  Nivea have divided these products in to 3 skin types:
                  * Dry / Sensitive
                  * Oily
                  * Normal / Combination

                  - Dry / Sensitive Moisturisers by Nivea Visage -

                  * Sensitive calming day cream
                  * Sensitive relaxing night cream
                  * Pampering Honey Mask
                  * Rich Daily Moisture Cream

                  - Rich Daily Moisture Cream -

                  This contains aloe vera which is known for treating skin conditions such as cuts, burns and eczema and in general sensitive facial skin.

                  Nivea say that is developed to moisturise and soothe dry sensitive skin by nourishing, hydrating and strengthening it leaving it more resistant to environmental factors.

                  - Price -

                  A 100ml tube is currently 4.78 at Boots.

                  - My Experience -

                  Not that great........... It smells lovely, a clean, fresh, quite sweet floral smell but that is where the advantages of the product start and end.

                  At this time of year my skin would probably be classed as 'normal' to dry although it tends to dry out a lot in the winter months. I do however have a small little patch at the bottom of each nostril that is currently a little red and dry but nothing major. To tell you the truth I didn't even notice this patch until I applied this cream this morning. It made it sting and that's when I became aware of it.

                  The moisturiser is certainly a bit thicker than the light fluid I tried the other day so Nivea have got the 'rich' part of their description correct and it is quickly absorbed but it lasted for approximately a couple of hours before my skin felt dry again and I applied my faithful very 'rich' E45 cream.

                  - My Verdict -

                  I really wouldn't like to use this on sensitive skin, as I already explained it made sections of my skin sting so goodness knows how someone would feel with eczema or other skin conditions. It certainly doesn't offer, in my opinion, 'intensive moisture for soft, supple skin'. If it had worked I would have been willing to pay that amount which I think is relatively expensive for a moisturiser but as far as I'm concerned my money would be better spent on a more effective moisturiser.

                  I'm not impressed thus far with the two Nivea Visage products I have tried but will nonetheless plod on with the freebies in the hope of finding something that I like.

                  I would certainly be interested in hearing from anyone who finds this cream to be effective, especially those of you with sensitive skin.

                  Thanks for reading.

                    Being a soap and water person with a dab of any old moisturiser I was persuaded to try the Q10 day cream by a friend after complaining of wrinkles beginning to appear. Pleasantly suprised I was, I have noticed a smoother feel to my skin and my wrinkles do appear to be less obvious [to me at least]. My husband has commented on my appearance and the smell of the cream is actually quite pleasant. Although quite pricey you do only use a fingertip each time so a little goes a long way.
