Nivea Visage Tinted Moisturiser
Advantages: Cheap, easy to use, feels nice
I am a big fan of using tinted moisturisers rather than foundations because I like that they feel lighter. I have tried a few over the years and this one from Nivea is one of my favourites.
It is widely available and costs about £3.50 at the moment from Tesco for a 50ml bottle. This is an excellent price and offers really good value for money because it is easily as good as some of the more expensive moisturising creams that you can get. For example I have most recently used Clinique's BB Cream, which is four times the price. Whilst the BB Cream is very good, I would be hard pushed to tell the difference between the two if I didn't see the packaging.
The packaging is very simple and does the job. It doesn't look cheap and nasty which is good.
The cream is very easy to apply. There is a tiny hole in the top of the squeezy tube which I think is great because it means you can control how much you get out of the bottle and you don't end up with excess amounts all over your hands when you've finished applying.
I find that you don't need very much of it either because a little goes a long way. I apply it probably three or four times a week and I have found that a 50ml bottle lasts me at least a couple of months, probably even longer (I don't pay a massive amount of attention to these things!). This makes it even better value for money in my opinion.
The cream is very light and I find that it blends in very well. Since it is a moisturiser, it has a much smoother feel and it is slightly thinner than foundation so that it spreads easily on my face. I also find that it doesn't feel too heavy on my face and it doesn't feel as though my skin is all clogged up. I find that foundations often have a much thicker ans almost chalkier feel and that you need to massage them in your hands a bit first so they can be applied easier but this tinted moisturiser is much silkier than that.
It comes in what they describe as a natural colour. I have quite dark skin and find that it blends in perfectly. I think that the colour is only very gentle anyway and so it would suit most skin colours I imagine. I tend to use it to sort of even out my skin colour rather than to change the colour of my skin like some foundations do and I find that it does the job perfectly.
I have very dry skin on certain areas of my face and I find that applying only a small amount of this really makes the difference and the effect is long lasting which is brilliant.
Overall I would absolutely recommend this cream because it is good value for money and it does an excellent job - at least as good as, if not better than some of the much more expensive versions that are available. For £3.50, you can't go wrong!
