Nivea Sun Moisturising Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect SPF 50 Review

Hi Ladies,

It’s still winters but as a rule of thumb, we should use sunscreens always, whether it is sunny or not.  However, I must confess here that I don’t follow this one religiously; I use sunscreen lotions on my face every day, but on my body only on an as-needed basis.  So, I never cared much about buying a very good sunscreen lotion. From the last two months, Mr. Husband started playing cricket every weekend, they keep matches with different corporate teams or clubs which means he stays out in the sun for 4-5 hours straight every weekend. This was tanning his skin badly and my regular body sunscreen lotion was not showing any effect of protection and that is when I decided to buy a sunscreen with higher SPF protection and one which can be water/sweat resistant too and my search of such sun protection lotion ended with Nivea Sun Moisturizing Immediate Sun Protection SPF 50 PA++.

My Experience with Nivea Sun Moisturising Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect SPF 50:

More than me, my husband has used this lotion, so I will be sharing mine as well as his experience with the product. To start with, let me let you about the texture of this lotion, it is not runny or very thick in consistency. This off white lotion spreads easily on the skin, and gets absorbed into the skin quicker than other sunscreens I have used till now. It claims to be a moisturizing lotion, I feel it is quite moisturizing, especially for summers.  One can skip body moisturizer with this.  This is a big plus for my husband as he hates using many products, so when one product can give him his needed moisturization and sun protection, he won’t ask for anything more.

Nivea Sunscreen

It has UVA/UVB protection and SPF 50 which is really good. When applied, initially it felt little sticky to me, but in a while that feeling disappeared.  On the other hand, husband did not feel it sticky at all. It also stood true to its claim of being water proof and sweat proof, as it did not go away for my husband with sweat. However, when I wash my hands after using this lotion, I always see some white film. We have not tried it yet in the pool or wore it to the beach, so I can’t comment about that. One nice thing about this lotion is that its different than other sunscreens in its claim about giving immediate protection. So, one doesn’t need to apply the lotion 20 minutes before sun exposure, you can use it on the go.

Sunscreen

It has a mild smell which faints after some time of application. I strictly use it on my body and not on the face.  I feel this is very thick for my oily facial skin. Husband uses it on face also, and he had no breakouts on his normal to dry skin. To sum it up, it is a decent sunscreen lotion with higher sun protection which can be used by everyone in the family.

Pros of Nivea Sun Moisturising Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect SPF 50:

  • Decent SPF of 50.
  • Immediate protection.
  • Both UVA and UVB protection.
  • Water resistant/sweat proof.
  • No bothering sticky feeling on the skin.
  • Moisturizes the skin.
  • Affordable.
  • Claims to protect skin collagen (I am not so sure how it works).

Cons of Nivea Sun Moisturising Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect SPF 50:

  • Gives a dewy finish to the skin, not matte.
  • Not ideal to be used on face as makeup base.
  • Contains parabens.
  • PA+++ protection could have been better.

IMBB Rating:

3.9/5
