Review: NIVEA Day cream
Nivea day cream (Boots £4.19)
Since running out of my holy grail Liz Earle moisturiser, I had to dash to Boots to buy something to temporarily use until I get a new Liz Earle one. However, it's going to be a moisturiser that I stick to using and always fall back on (even though Liz Earle's skin repair moisturiser is my favourite! review here) as it's a lot cheaper, possibly just as good and comes in a handy squeezy tube. I prefer tubes to pots/tubs as I feel it's more hygienic and just generally easier! They have different tubes for different skin types too. I picked up the dry/sensitive (pink) tube as that's generally my skin type. I don't really have dry skin but it often feels tight if I'm in need of moisturising, usually after exfoliating.
Honestly, I wasn't expecting great things as it is so cheap and I literally only picked it up as a temporary replacement but it's one of the best things I have ever randomly bought. I actually went in Boots to pick up Simple's moisturiser, which wasn't in stock.. so this was the next best thing! I haven't broken out for about a month and I've probably been using this for about three/four weeks now! Obviously it's really moisturising too and doesn't smell overpowering which I find Nivea products sometimes have. I think I'm going to try out the night cream too!
