Oily skin

My Take on Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash:

Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash comes in a sea green, translucent, inverted tube with a flip flop cap. The face wash is sea green in color with blue micro beads in it. The color of the gel is quite pleasing and I like the tiny blue beads in it. Since it is a gel, it is not at all runny.


I am using this face wash since the last 2-3 weeks and I am not at all impressed.  It claims to be for mixed to oily skin, but I think it would work better for normal to dry skin people because we oily-skinned people are usually acne prone and this face wash does nothing to reduce break outs, progression of active acne or the formation of acne scars.


This face wash does a decent job in removing light make up. It removes oil from the face but doesn’t mattify my face completely. I don’t get that squeaky clean feeling after using this face wash, maybe that’s because I feel it doesn’t remove oil completely. This face wash doesn’t dry out my skin. I found this face wash to be very gentle on my skin.

The blue micro beads in it provide very mild and gentle exfoliation, which I don’t think is enough at all. It doesn’t lather much, hence I end up using double the amount I would normally use while using any other face wash. It doesn’t give the glow to my face which I generally get after washing my face with my other face washes.

Pros of Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash:

  • This face wash feels very gentle on the skin.
  • Removes light make up.
  • Doesn’t dry out my skin.

Cons of Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash:

  • Doesn’t mattify my skin completely and doesn’t give me that squeaky clean feeling after washing my face.
  • Doesn’t make my skin glow after washing my face with it.
  • Doesn’t lather well.
  • Doesn’t in any way help in reducing acne progression or fresh breakouts.

IMBB Rating:

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash?

Though I don’t like this face wash at all, I think it might suit normal and dry-skinned people better. Every face wash works differently on every person, so it is possible that it would suit other oily-skinned ladies much more than it suited me. I would only say that in case you have acne-prone skin, buy this only after you are sure and you like Nivea face washes. In case you are in a need of gentle face wash and you don’t have acne-prone and oily skin, you can give this a try.

Have a nice day!!!

    1. try fabindia tea tree face wash Tarannum. its my HG face wash. it helps in controlling my acne break outs to a large extent. m already on my 3rd bottle 😛

      1. Currently using Lotus Tea Tree FaceWash. I keep trying new products all the time when it comes to controlling acne. I got back to Lotus after two years 😛 It’s like a cycle. Will try Fab India when this one finishes 🙂

  2. Oh… I don’t want this….thanks for the review Surbhi….waise, you should try the Yardley foaming face wash….its really good for oily skin 🙂
