I’m very fussy about my facial moisturiser, as I have extreme combination skin – very oily in patches, and very dry in others. Usually I don’t stray too far from my Nivea Light Daily Cream, so I was a bit nervous as to whether it would be any good. And my fears were confirmed. I used it over the top of my serum, and found it was extremely light – far too light for my skin. Despite its creamy appearance, it sunk in very quickly – very little was needed as it was so light. I definitely need a richer moisturiser - even though my regular Nivea one is supposedly ‘light’ it’s much richer.
I slapped on (I mean gently massaged) two applications of the Vitamin E moisturiser to try and achieve that ‘moisturised’ feeling, but I couldn’t achieve it – my skin felt tight across my cheeks and slightly stretched. So I added some more and it felt OK. But writing this several hours later, my skin is feeling slightly tight again, and not that well moisturised. My make-up went on well and has lasted pretty long, so it works well as a makeup base.
I think that in very warm weather, or if you have less dry patches than me, this would probably be a really good cream. But with my skin type, it wouldn’t be my first choice.
I’ve got quite a lot to use up this week, but as I’ll use several applications at a time, hopefully I’ll get through it all!
