New Year, New Natural Nivea

Hi everyone!   

Hope the new year is going well so far for you.

Well without further ado let me say how I've been enjoying the skincare oldie brand, NIVEA and now especially with its all new pure and natural range.

I have always loved the Nivea brand in the little blue pots and it is all my mum ever uses.   She says it is the only cream that does not irritate her eyes- bit of a strange comment- but that's what she said.
I would not have used it that often the past few years as I did actually find it too thick for my face and hard to rub in smoothly,but recently I started to steal a little bit from my mum's large tub just to dab in any dry bits that appeared on my face after I had used mineral foundation.  Well I loved how that small dabble gave me a smooth finish.
So I ended up buying myself this mini blue pot version so I can pop it in my handbag.

The lastest Nivea Visage Pure & Natural range has recognised the modern trends towards more natural and pure skincare products.
I have been using these two products lately and I must say I am quite impressed:

1. Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Cleansing Toner
2. Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream

Lets take a look at what they are all about and my thoughts on them both.

 Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Cleansing Toner

Details from the packaging:
  • 95% of natural origin
  • For all skin types
  • Contains bio argan oil and bio aloe vera. (both organically grown)
  • Skin compatibility dermatologically approved.
  • All packaging materials are recyclable
  •  "...gently cleanses and  revitalises while supporting your skin's natural balance, enriching its natural healthy glow."
  • NO parabens
  • NO silicones
  • NO colourants
  • NO mineral oils
 My verdict:   
I love a brand that shows me they know what I am looking for and what customers are searching for these days and I just love how it emphasises that absense of
any nasties.:)
First of all I love the fact that it is a cleansing toner so I do not have to buy both a cleanser and a toner.
I like it all in one and is one of the main reasons I use wipes because they offer me an all-in-one. 
I also love the clear transparent packaging which looks and feels fresh and clean and is recyclable.
Using the product, I pour a decent amount onto a cotton pad to wipe a wider surface area of my face at a time.
It is so cool and refresing and it makes your face feel so clean and very soft afterwards.  It has a nice scent that is not too strong.
It does seem like your skin is so dry and a bit tight after using it, but its just because it has done a good job of removing all the impurities and oil from your skin.  I always apply moisturiser afterwards.
I usually tend to use facewipes because I hate any laborious methods and having to use cotton wool, but I like using this especially when I only a little bit of concealer on some days and a bit of blush so instead of using a whole wipe I just dabble a bit of this on the cotton pad and it does the job.
It is handy too when I realise I have run out of wipes, I just use this.  I'd just need larger cotton pads if I have extra makeup on cos the small pads take too long.
I love having it as well as the wipes for that reason so I will definitely be getting this again. (There is also a cleansing lotion available.)

Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream

Details from the packaging:      
  • 95% of natural origin
  • For dry to sensitive skin (There is also a moisturising day cream for normal to combination skin)
  • Skin compatibility dermatologically approved.
  • Bio Argan Oil( source of vitamin E) & Bio Chamomile (both organically grown)
  • All packaging materials are recyclable.
  • "...effective ingredients that work in perfect harmony with your skin."
" Combining skincare expertise with nature."
  • Daily use gives naturally soft and smooth skin
  • Intensive 24 hour soothing moisture
  • Enriches skin's natural glow
  • NO parabens
  • NO silicones
  • NO colourants
  • NO mineral oils

My verdict:

I love the fresh white recyclable packaging with photos of nature on it and the little glass tub.
I find the cream easy to rub into my face and it has a nice fresh citrus scent.
It seems a little oily when first applied but its absorbs in fast and leave your face feeling fresh, soft and moisturised.
I like to put this on before I put on any makeup as it prepares and protects my face from the day ahead leaving it nice and smooth all day long.
I also use it before bed too to nourish my skin during the night time cell renewal process.

Well I hope you enjoy using these products as much as I do. Snap some up and let me know what you think!
Any other products I should know about?? Would love to hear about them!
I will be back with more very soon- I have just started using a sample of a different product lately and I just love it, I am definitely getting the full size as soon as I can, I'll tell you about that one later...
Until then...stay happy and keep lovin' life...

Cheerio folks!
