NIVEA Visage 3in1 Waterproof Make-Up Remover, RRP $12
With a few drops on a cotton pad, the creamy formula of this triple-action product wiped away all traces of my make-up in only a couple of swift sweeps. Even my waterproof eye-makeup and normally stubborn, long-lasting lipstick wiped away without smudging.
The creamy texture feels gentle on the skin – no doubt thanks to the chamomile extract – without leaving a greasy residue. My skin was left looking clean, fresh and well hydrated.
NIVEA My Silhouette Bio-Slim Concept, RRP $15
This gel-cream is designed to improve skin firmness as well as refine body contours. It is specifically targeted at women’s troublesome areas; the thighs, hips and waist. The active ingredients of White Tea – known to have a slimming effect – and Anise Extract – which has been shown to activate skin cell metabolism – are proven to help tone and reshape your body within four weeks.
The texture of the cream is light and easy to massage into the skin. Although it should be applied twice a day, I only used it in the morning on my stomach, thighs and buttocks and the skin on this area does appear to be slightly firmer and definitely more hydrated.
I think the trouble with products like this, is that the results are often hard to notice with the naked eye but probably had you taken a before and after shot, you would be able to see the difference. Regardless, I will continue to use this product as it feels good, smells good and seeing it has been clinically proven to work, there’s nothing to lose.
NIVEA VISAGE Expert Lift Eye Cream 15ml $33
Part of NIVEA’s Anti-Sagging range, this eye cream is designed to tighten, firm, redefine and smooth the delicate eye area. The formula contains two powerful ingredients: Bioxilift – a 100 per cent natural extract from the Anise plant – to support the tightening and firming of the skin and Hyaluronic Acid – a skin hydrating bioactive which plumps and smoothes the skin.
On contact with the skin, the gentle formula absorbed easily and instantly left my skin feeling and looking more revived. On the days that I woke with particularly puffy and tired-looking skin around the eye area, the cream definitely helped tighten and smooth the problems away. With UVA and UVB protection, this eye cream is also a good preventative tool, keeping those pesky crow’s feet at bay.
