I have heard of the Nivea brand for as long as I can remember! I remember my Mom used to buy the classic Nivea Creme when I was little. It is a tried and true brand that has been around and has lasting power. Personally, I have not used many Nivea products yet… but we are about to change that!
I recently had the opportunity to try out a handful of Nivea products through ChickAdvisor’s Product Review Club. Five Nivea products were included in the Nivea Must Haves Campaign and I was excited to try each and every one!
The first product I tried when I received this package in the mail were the Nivea Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes. I figured, it was the end of the day and it was time to remove my makeup so, why not?
This is a brand new product to the Nivea product line. Each cloth has the signature Nivea Creme scent! The cleansing cloth is very, very soft and gentle on your skin. It’s not at all abrasive. It does remove most of my makeup, however, I still felt the need to cleanse my face to get a more thorough cleansing after using the cleansing wipes. Leading me to what I tried next…
The Nivea Creme Care All-in-One Facial Cleansing Lotion was the perfect “next step” in my night time skincare routine. How convenient! This is also a brand new product and it is said to have “skin- friendly ingredients” that “cleanses face and eyes thoroughly while protecting skin’s natural moisture balance.” That sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Now that the weather is getting colder and the skin is getting drier here in Alberta, it’s exactly what the doctor ordered!
When I squeezed some of the cleansing lotion onto my hand, I noticed right away that it also had the signature scent of Nivea Creme. (I’m sensing a trend here!) Application was smooth and it does feel like a lotion on my skin. This concerned me at first because I wasn’t sure if it would rinse off easily but I was wrong. I was rinsed it off with ease and my face felt very soft. As if I already had a moisturizer on. I was pretty happy with it.
The next product is a classic. The Nivea Creme is the original moisturizer that kick started everything! You can use it on your body, face or hands and it comes in numerous sizes (400 ml, 250 ml, 150 ml). It’s a very rich and thick moisturizing cream so it’s awesome for dry skin. I like how small this tin is. I will be adding this to the makeup bag that I keep in my purse for those moments when I need a hand cream.
So what’s next? Oh yes, the Nivea Protect & Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant. I am usually a fan of gel anti-perspirants but this solid is pretty good! It has a nice, light scent and it works great as an everyday anti-perspirant. It is still effective even when I’m working out AFTER work… roughtly 10 hours after I first apply this after my shower in the morning! So I really can’t complain.
And I have saved the best for last! Honestly, this product is the biggest surprise to me. As you may already know, I’m a big lip balm junkie! I keep one in my purse, my makeup vanity, my nightstand… all the important places where I may need a lip balm! So when I received the Nivea Essential Lip Balm, I was intrigued. I’ve seen this product in stores but I never had the urge to try it. Now that I have, all I have to say is – what took me so long??? I love this lip balm! It’s super hydrating! A great addition to my lip balm collection just in time for winter! To be perfectly honest, this lip balm has not left my purse since I first put it in there for “testing purposes” the day I received my package from ChickAdvisor. I use it every single day. LOVE!
Overall, I was just so impressed with the Nivea Must Haves! ChickAdvisor doesn’t fail me when they send me these awesome boxes to try and I am just so thankful for the opportunity. 🙂
Have you tried any of these Nivea Must Haves? What’s your fave product? Or if you haven’t tried anything yet, what are you looking forward to trying?
’till next time, friends!
