Hello sweet friends!
IMBB has become the first hand encyclopedia for makeup, fashion and beauty topics. The product reviews not only well verse you about what to buy and what to skip, but also keep you introducing to new and newer brands to explore and prepare mind to purchase what you would never have thought in your wildest dreams even. The OOTDs update you about how to style yourself and look trendy and DIY’s provide homemade remedies to your issues. The product I am reviewing today is Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion. Every beauty who indulges herself in more than a lipstick and kajal must have felt the need of a perfect makeup remover. I am hunting for the most suitable one for me, especially since I have extra sensitive eyes.
Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion is a lightweight lotion for normal and combination skin that removes all impurities including makeup whilst helping maintain skin’s natural moisture balance. Suitable even for the delicate eye area. During cleansing it is important to respect skin’s natural moisture balance to keep your skin fresh and hydrated all day long. This is why Nivea has introduced revolutionary Hydra IQ moisture technology. Enriched with Vitamin E and Hydra IQ the Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:
- Cleanses deeply, removing make-up and even waterproof mascara.
- Moisturises the skin to keep its natural moisture balance.
- Refreshes the skin with its invigorating formula.
- The formula with Vitamin E is especially mild to the skin.
- Your skin is deeply cleansed, looking refreshed and feeling hydrated all day long.
I purchased it for Rs. 590 PKR, that is around $5.9 for 200 ml of product. (Made in Germany)
My Experience with Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:
The white colored Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion comes with a flip open cap which is sturdy and travel friendly. The white cleansing lotion has mediocre consistency which is ideal to handle. It carries a mild pleasant scent, which is the trademark of Nivea. Coming to the chemical composition, lately I have been observing that every cleanser, shampoo, lotion, showers gels; no matter whatever you pick up, it contains a long list of chemicals. This one does too with added parabens. I wish I have some magic to convert all my essential stuff to natural remedies, but time constraints always make me reach for products available in the market.
Coming to the actual performance, I solely purchased this for removing makeup and it has disappointed me badly. The swatches you see in images are of Kryolan TV paint stick, MAC Rebel lipstick, NYX Sparkle lipstick, Becute lipstick and last one is Maybelline gel eyeliner. You can see that one swipe of cleanser did literally no harm to the makeup swatches. The second image shows two swipe efforts and the third one displays my unlimited efforts to remove the makeup. The gel eyeliner did not fade a bit, so you can conclude how ineffective the product is for eye makeup removal. Though it is ophthalmologically tested and approved, but when it doesn’t remove eye makeup, what am I going to do with that approval! It is also dermatologically approved for skin and the brand says it to be suitable for normal to combination skin types. I see that my foundation and base doesn’t get properly removed with this.
Pros of Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:
- Ophthalmologically and dermatologically tested.
- Formulated for normal to combination skin types.
Cons of Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:
- Exaggerated claims.
- Ineffective in removing makeup.
- Does not remove eye makeup effectively.
- Does not remove heavy foundation.
- Does not give a clean, makeup free skin.
- Contains parabens.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Cleansing Lotion?
No, skip this one please and rather go and have a mango shake from the money you want to spend on this cleanser. I am already regretting that I purchased this because it is not only about the bucks but what am I going to do with this bottle now? Any suggestions girls?
