My Experience with Nivea Daily Essentials 1 Minute Urban Detox Mask + Purify:
The mask comes in a tube like package. It has highlights of green. The product comes unsealed and has a white flip cap. The cap has the company name on it. The product closes with a click and is handy. The 75 ml tube is travel-friendly as there is no leakage. There is some information on the back of the tube.
The mask is pale green in color with green exfoliating particles. The smell is pleasant and has the typical Nivea smell. The exfoliating particles are from the bark extract of Magnolia.
The application is pretty simple. You need to apply generous amount of the mask and then leave it on for a minute. Later, remove it with a warm cloth or wash it off. The product is an exfoliating mask. The main ingredient of the mask is kaolin and as known, it doesn’t dry off in a minute and I leave it on for 5-10 minutes. The mask when applied on the skin causes a lot of tingling sensation and if you have sensitive skin, it might not be a good choice.
After washing off, the product makes the skin very soft and smooth. It gently cleanses the skin and exfoliates. I wet the mask a little and rub it off against my skin before washing it off. The granules are gentle and do not cause any issues. The product softens the skin and also closes the pores. My skin also looks brighter and this is due to the presence of kaolin. However, the product dries out the skin a lot and you need to follow up with a good moisturizer. The product also reduces the pimples. I usually dab it on pimples and it reduces the pimples within a day. The product does tone the skin. I have been using the product twice in a week and it is pretty good. The concept of detoxification is a little over rated and it could be a good cleansing mask. The product contains parabens which is a minus. Overall, it is a good one but it is nothing special and is just another kaolin mask. So summing up.
