I have the most exciting news – I’ve joined The Nivea Family; and as you can probably imagine I am OVER THE MOON. (*Sings in head* ‘dreams can come true…’)
Nivea is a brand that I’ve used my whole life; it’s the first range of beauty products that I ever used. Growing up, Nivea was a staple in our house; my mum always used the Nivea Creme, and it was the first skincare product I ever used. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be accepted into the Nivea Family; to partner with a global brand like Nivea is extremely exciting. I am so grateful for the opportunity.
To welcome me to the community, Nivea kindly sent me the most amazing PR package, packed full of some incredible products.
I’ll be talking more about what Nivea sent me below, but first, in the interest of full disclosure, Nivea hasn’t instructed me to post this blog post – I have full control over what I write and what I share on my social media channels.
What was I sent from Nivea in my ‘Welcome Pack’?
Q10 Plus C Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream | £12.99
I was really excited to be sent this product as I’ve been thinking about starting an anti-ageing skincare routine for a while – I’m 29 this year and it feels like it’s time – I just didn’t know where to start.
Nivea’s Q10 Plus C Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream contains Q10 which is 100% identical to the Q10 in your skin – aka the natural defence against ageing – combined with potent antioxidants and pure Vitamin C. The formula was developed with skin that’s dull, tired and in need of an energy boost in mind; the cream recharges the skin overnight. Did you know that during the night our skin is the most receptive to repair?
What I love about this cream is how luxuriously thick and silky it feels; once applied it quickly soaked into my skin, offering intense hydration. The next day my skin felt wonderfully plump and hydrated, while my complexion felt smoother. I’m a big fan of citrus-scented products, so I loved, loved, loved the smell of this cream – it’s so zesty and fresh.
Micellair Professional Micellar Water | £6.00
I love the fact that this product is vegan – as are many of the Nivea products – and the bottle is made from 96% recycled materials. While I’m not vegan myself, I do feel that when it comes to skincare and beauty products, if I can use products that are vegan and cruelty-free then that’s great. I’m also a big fan of environmentally conscious products, so the fact that the bottle is recycled is fantastic.
Formulated using dry oil, the lightweight micellar water is infused with Micellar and Black Tea extract, and is designed to gently cleanse while removing even the toughest makeup, without leaving makeup, dirt, or oil residue on the skin. Micellair Professional Micellar Water is suitable for use on the entire face, including the delicate eye area, and is designed to be effective at removing waterproof makeup.
This formula is designed to act like a magnet, sweeping away makeup, dirt and impurities, with its bi-phase formula ensuring that eyelashes and brows are protected, thanks to the need for no rinsing.
Raspberry Fresh Blends Refreshing Shower Cream | £3.99
I love, love, love the smell of this shower cream, it’s so wonderfully fresh and fruity. I’m a real lover of shower gels that offer a fresh, fruity scent, and this one certainly ticks that box. The combination of raspberry, blueberry and almond milk offers the most indulgent shower experience that leaves your skin feeling wonderfully soft and smooth.
The formula is biodegradable and has been blended with a range of naturally derived ingredients, fruit extracts, and plant-based almond milk. Plus, the bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic, helping to reduce Nivea’s impact on the environment.
Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream | £5.99 | Organic Aloe Vera
Anyone who knows me knows how much of a fan I am of aloe vera; I grow my own aloe vera plants and I always have a tube of pure aloe vera gelly on hand whenever I go away or head out and about. I’m a big believer in the health benefits of aloe vera, particularly related to skincare, so I was really excited to be sent the Nivea Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream which is infused with organic aloe vera.
Part of the Nivea Naturally Good skincare range that’s designed with the environment in mind, the Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream is made from 99% natural origin ingredients and is designed with deep hydration in mind. Offering 24 hour moisturisation, this day cream is ideal for anyone with skin that’s prone to dryness.
What I love about this day cream is the fact that a little goes a long way, making it a great budget-friendly skincare option. When applying this cream to my face, I loved how light and fresh it felt, as well as how quickly it soaked in, leaving me with soft, smooth, well-hydrated skin.
Naturally Good Regenerating Night Cream | £5.99 | Organic Argan Oil
Another product from Nivea’s Naturally Good range, the Naturally Good Regenerating Night Cream is the perfect companion for the Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream. I’ve been using both in tandem and I’ve been loving the results.
The Naturally Good Regenerating Night Cream is made up of 99% natural origin ingredients, including Argan Oil, which helps to aid overnight skin regeneration. Designed to offer intense 24-hour hydration that leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed the next morning, the Naturally Good Regenerating Night Cream has been dermatologically approved.
I’m a real fan of this night cream; it smells lovely, has a good texture – it’s wonderfully creamy without being too heavy. While it has a thick consistency, it soaks in fairly quickly and doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy or oily – there doesn’t seem to be any residue left behind.
Naturally Good Cocoa Butter Body Lotion | £7.99
I must admit I don’t usually use body lotion; I just find myself getting stressed having to wait for it to dry before I can get dressed. However, I am totally in love with the Nivea Naturally Good Cocoa Butter Body Lotion; it has a thick consistency but spreads easily and soaks in fairly quickly, it’s wonderfully hydrating, and it smells absolutely glorious.
What I love about the products in the Nivea Naturally Good range is the fact that they have no hidden ingredients and have been inspired by nature. Designed with very skin in mind, this body lotion offers up to 48 hours of hydration, the Naturally Good Cocoa Butter Body Lotion leaves skin feeling smooth, healthy, and wonderfully moisturised.
Made with 98% natural origin ingredients, the Naturally Good Cocoa Butter Body Lotion has a vegan formula enriched with 100% natural organic Cocoa Butter.
Hand Cleansing Sanitiser Spray | £2.50
In the past year – for obvious reasons – I’ve tried out more hand sanitisers than ever before. I’ve found that for me personally, I prefer to use sanitising sprays rather than gel formulas, so when I saw that Nivea had created a sanitising spray, I couldn’t wait to try it.
The ethanol-based cleansing spray is perfume-free and enriched with Glycerin, to help reduce the risk of skin irritation. Glycerin helps to aid skin hydration, locking in moisture, while the 70% ethanol leaves skin feeling clean and fresh.
What I like about the Nivea Hand Cleansing Sanitiser Spray is how easy and convenient it is to use; the texture is light and the sanitiser quickly soaks into the skin without leaving a greasy or oily residue.
3 In 1 Repair Care Hand Cream | £4.28
I’ve always been prone to eczema and dry, chapped skin, but the current need for constant sanitising has made my skin far worse. Luckily, in my welcome pack I was sent the Nivea 3 in 1 Repair Hand Cream, which I have fallen totally in love with.
Its concentrated formula with Provitamin B5 is designed to offer instant relief from the feeling of dryness and tightness, while deeply repairing dry skin with intensive hydration, offering ongoing protection for delicate skin.
The texture is thick and creamy with a balm-like texture, rather than a traditional hand cream. I’ve found that a little goes a long way, which is great. What I love about this hand cream is the fact that despite its rich texture, it is quickly absorbed into skin, and offers long-lasting hydration.
Nivea Face Masks | £3.99
I was also sent three Nivea facemasks – the Q10 Energy Instant Recharge Sheet Mask, Q10 Power 10 Minute Face Sheet Mask, and Bye Bye Dry Skin Nourishing Sheet Mask.
The Q10 Energy Instant Recharge Sheet Mask has a formula made up of two anti-oxidants and contains skin-identical Q10 and Vitamin C. It’s designed to smooth fine lines, instantly reduce signs of fatigue, offer a boost of hydration, and leave skin feeling energised and refreshed. I’m a real fan of this face mask; it left my skin feeling smooth, subple, and wonderfully refreshed.
The Q10 Power 10 Minute Face Sheet Mask features a combination of Q10 and Creatine and is designed to leave skin feeling firmer. Made to be biodegradable, this super soft sheet mask is the ideal option for giving your skin a boost when time is limited as it’s designed to work its magic in just 10 minutes.
I love, love, love the Bye Bye Dry Skin Nourishing Sheet Mask from Nivea. Aside from the fact that the pack contains two masks, I love how once applied your skin feels instantly nourished. There’s something wonderfully indulgent about this face mask; enriched with honey and natural almond oil, if you’re looking for the perfect pamper product this is definitely a contender.
I’m so pleased with all of the products Nivea kindly gifted me as part of my Nivea Family Welcome Pack. I’m really excited to continue working with Nivea and can’t wait to see what life as part of the Nivea Family brings.
