Beauty Review: Nivea Facial Wipes

Friday, 14 November 2014

These days, my skin seems to be losing its hydration faster than I can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. My skin flakes when I apply powder foundation and that seriously freaks me out. It never used to be like that! 

Just very recently, I found out it could be due to the oil-based makeup remover that I am using! I honestly didn't expect that and because I don't want to look like a wrinkled dry prune, I had to start hunting for a new makeup remover.

Even from my days as a flying crew, I tried to pack as light as I can possibly help because I am the one carrying all my luggage overseas (you don't know how many flights of staircases they have in Europe...and don't get me started on the pebbled sidewalk) and I don't want to break my back/arms/shoulders carrying/pushing those bags! Yet one thing I never compromised on, was my skincare products. H and friends who have travelled with me can vouch for that because most times, I bring full-sized bottles hahaha. 

You wouldn't want to clog your pores with the sunscreen/makeup you have on your face so the first most important step is really to remove all traces of makeup at the end of the day.

Currently, I am using NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes for dry and sensitive skin (some areas of my skin are more sensitive) because NIVEA is one of the world’s most trusted and affordable skincare brands. As we all know, sensitive skin requires delicate care and the Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes contain almond oil (for soft and supple skin), calendula oil (provides soothing benefits) and hydra IQ. The latter ingredient is actually NIVEA-exclusive and it stimulates our skin's aquaporin network so that moisture can be supplied to deeper skin layers over 24 hours.

The Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes are definitely my favourite because not only are they effective in removing my layers of makeup, they also keep my skin moist, hydrated, soft and smooth!

Because NIVEA will never leave any one of us ladies out, there are facial wipes that cater to all skin types ;)

For normal to combination skin, there is the NIVEA Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes. The key ingredients lotus extract, vitamin E and hydra IQ maintain the skin's natural moisture while cleansing and toning the skin. The alcohol-free formula doesn't leave the skin feeling tight or dry and the wipes aid in skin healing and regeneration while rebalancing sebum production, tightening pores and refining skin texture.

Consumers with sensitive skin can consider the NIVEA Fragrance-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes as it is free of oils, alcohols and colourants. You don't have to worry about breakouts or skin irritation while cleansing, toning, hydrating and being tender to your skin!

The newest addition to the facial wipes range by NIVEA is the 3-in-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Wipes which are formulated for oily to combination skin. These wipes are special because there are two different surfaces!

I drew lipstick, lipliner, liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara on my hand and will remove the makeup using the 3-in-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Wipes.

After one gentle swipe using the soft side of the wipe, the makeup is thoroughly removed!

Then I turned the wipe over to exfoliate my skin using the textured surface which contains micro-exfoliation particles to remove dead skin cells and stubborn debris.

The best thing is that, both sides of the wipes are infused with Magnolia Bark Extract which prevents blemishes! Look forward to soft skin that's deeply cleansed when you are done!
