New NIVEA Sensitive Face Care products effectively reduce the three main signs of sensitive skin. Say goodbye to redness, tightness and dryness and embrace the cold outdoors. With NIVEA sensitive products you won’t have to worry about missing on any winter fun or festivities, your skin will be radiant and ready for any occasion!
 
Before I begin this review, I want to give a little background information about my skin so you’ll have a better understanding to see if these products are suitable for you. I find in the recent years that my skin has undergone plenty of changes. I used to have oily/combinational skin but now as I got older, my skin got more sensitive and dry especially in the winter. I don’t have dry spots but sometimes my skin feels very tight and it’s very painful. Thus, these new Nivea products came just in time!
 

SENSITIVE 3 IN 1 MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER
The Dexpanthenol and Grape Seed Oil offers 3 in 1 action:
1) Cleanses
2) Removes eye make-up and
3) Moisturizes to soothe the skin

Micellar water is a particularly mild, yet highly effective cleansing fluid that uses micelle technology. The micelles on a cotton pad work like a magnet to dirt and make-up but keep water outside, so no rinsing is required.
 
PROS:
-Very gentle on my skin, it doesn’t cause any stinging to the eyes or irritation on my skin
-I love that it doesn’t make my skin feel tight
-Affordable in comparison to other cleansing water on the market
-Very easy to use, no rinsing required
CONS:
-Too gentle that it doesn’t quite remove all waterproof makeup completely. However, it removes all kinds of other makeup
 

SENSITIVE DAY CARE
This skin caring formula is enriched with Liquorice Extract and precious Grape Seed oil :
1) Soothes skin via moisturizing it during the day and visibly reduces redness due to dry skin
2) Instantly relieves the skin from unpleasant feelings of tightness
3) Provides intensive moisture and replenishes the skin’s moisture barrier
 
PROS:
-This has been my go-to cream in the past 2 months. I have been using it every single morning because it leaves my face feeling fresh and no unpleasant feelings of tightness
-No added parabens, colorants and perfume
-Love the squeezable bottle too, very sanitary for everyday use
-Very affordable

CONS:
-None!
 

SENSITIVE NIGHT CARE
This skin caring formula is enriched with Liquorice Extract and precious Grape Seed oil:
1) Soothes skin via moisturizing it during the night and visibly reduces redness due to dry skin
2) Instantly relieves the skin from unpleasant feelings of tightness
3) Provides intensive moisture and replenishes the skin moisture barrier
4) Supports the skin’s rejuvenating look at night and provides a relaxed skin feeling in the morning
 
PROS:
-This night care lotion is very similar to the day care one in the sense that it really does its job. My skin feels hydrated without any signs on tightness the day after.
-Love the squeezable bottle too, very sanitary for everyday use
-Very affordable

CONS:
-It can be a bit thick for Summer usage, if you don’t like thick cream, then I would recommend staying away from this one
 


COCOA BUTTER BODY LOTION
1) The formula, with Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E, instantly moisturizes and smoothes the feeling of rough dry skin
2) It provides skin with a beautiful healthy-looking glow all day long
3) The lotion, with an indulgent Cocoa scent, absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy feel
 
PROS:
-Great smell, I love anything with a Cocoa scent!
-Extremely moisturizing and thicker than your average body lotion

CONS:
-Since it is thicker, it does take a longer time to absorb into the skin. It’s ideal for Winter but I can see it being a bit too heavy during the hot, humid Summer season
 
NIVEA CREME CARE SHOWER CREAM
The NIVEA Creme Care Shower Cream will envelop your skin with its foam and the unique NIVEA scent will leave you feeling moisturised and smooth. The Hydra IQ Moisture Technology leaves skin feeling moisturised even after towel drying. Its formula is PH balanced, skin compatible and dermatologically approved.
 
PROS:
-In just few days, my skin has turned softer and smooth to touch.
-It has the same smell as the old Nivea tin cream! So if you love that smell, you’ll love this because I think it’s rather strong.
-It lathers really well and works well with my loofah
-The shower cream makes my skin feeling soft and doesn’t leave a sticky film on my body
-Very affordable and accessible

CONS:
-If you’re not a big fan of the old Nivea tin cream, then the scent will really bug you.
 
 
Overall, very impressive with these new products by Nivea! If you have dry or sensitive skin, I highly recommend getting your hands on these products from your local drugstore!
