Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Clean Up : Review

Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Clean Up  Review

This tube has been lying there since sooo long! I bought this after a few days when it first came a part of the haul here, used it regularly and then moved on to other products while this vanished (okaaay, I pushed this really back). Before you ask me, yes it was the glowing face of Parineeti Chopra in the ad that made me get this. :D

Anyway, I have been using this again finally and now it's over so about time I put up a short review.

Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Clean Up  Review


Nivea pure effect total face cleanup enriched with Active Magnolia Extract provides you 5 benefits for Pure and Clear skin:
• Its unique cleansing complex deeply washes off skin impurities.
• Its peeling particles unclog pores and purify skin from blackheads.
• Left on as a pack for a few minutes will refine skin’s appearance and support a perfect complexion.
• Its anti-bacterial formulation helps fight spot causing bacteria & gives visibly pure skin.
• Is soft and gentle to skin due to its mild formula
My experience:
The tube packaging with a flip top cap is so nice. Leak proof and very travel friendly. The fragrance is mild and I found it somewhat soothing and you can sniff the signature Nivea scent in it. I liked it :)

The cream/scrub/mask...what should I call it? Okay, the "paste" is white with tiny blue beads (not very harsh) for exfoliation. It is neither very creamy nor very soapy (so do not expect this one to lather) and dries in 3 to 4 minutes. I used it as a scrub, a face wash and did the whole regimen thing too and I liked it better when used the last way. This was the only skincare product I took to Chennai (few months back) with me when I had some exams. It saved me so much space and hassle.. everything I need in one tube! Cleanser, scrub and pack all in one and a face clean up in 5 minutes. Genius!

I have oily skin and after using this my skin totally get rid of all the oil, feels squeaky clean, soft and smooth. And so the face does look brighter. Also, it has never broken me out. Why did I ever stop using this?! *weird me* And although it says suitable for Normal to Oily skin, I think it  it might dry out normal skin types a bit. (Dry skinned women just stay away from this one or use loads of moisturizer after this!).

Now, it will not give the whole professional parlour like clean up (and it would be stupid to expect that) but it comes in so handy when you do not have much time to spare and also because I cannot go for a clean up session every 15 days and this product is economical that way! I like it! :)

The downside? Lots of chemicals, will dry out normal and dry skin and I have not seen any spot reduction.

Will I repurchase it?
Yes, I think I have to. (I might have to attend a wedding next month and I must take it with tube and I will be sorted). 5 minutes = hello fresh face. Yes I am going to get another tube :)

Price:  99 INR for 50 ml and 199 for 150 ml
