Skin Type- Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
Reviewing similar products comes with advantages and disadvantages. Advantage is that I get to compare the effectiveness of the products and disadvantage being, it starts to get boring after a while. Anyway, my love for Nivea continues as I review this Makeup Clear Cleansing Water by Nivea.
Price – Rs. 365/- (approx.)
Removes all kinds of make up even on eye area, without leaving skin feeling greasy. It cleanses deeply while moisturizing and refreshing skin with its effective yet mild cleansing complex and does not leave residues (colourants, perfume alcohol, parabens and silicone). Skin looks radiant & water-like. For normal to combination skin.
My Experience with Nivea Extra Bright Makeup Clear Cleansing Water:
The cleansing water comes in simple transparent plastic bottle with a white cap, the cap is flip-top and hence is easy to use. Looking into the size, I do not really find it to be travel-friendly. The details about the product are mentioned at the back of the bottle.
It is rightly names as cleansing water as it looks and feels like water. Since it is not bi-phased there is no need to shake the bottle to mix the fluids. I apply it with cotton pad on the face to remove makeup. There is a faint typical “Nivea” fragrance to it which I like personally; but the smell is not overpowering thankfully.
Coming to the effectiveness of the product, it works well on regular makeup; for long wearing waterproof formula several swipes are required. For me that is a con as it tends to hurt the eyes if there is vigorous rubbing involved in the makeup removal process. I have recently used so many similar products, that I find this one lagging behind in the competition. If you are into light makeup for everyday, then it is definitely an option but for me it is pretty average, if not below it. I would not repurchase as I have used better products in the same price range.
Pros of Nivea Extra Bright Makeup Clear Cleansing Water:
• Simple packaging.
• Removes light makeup.
• No break out.
Cons of Nivea Extra Bright Makeup Clear Cleansing Water:
• Takes effort to remove long-wear makeup.
• Might irritate eyes if over-rubbed to completely remove makeup.
IMBB Rating – 3.25/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Nivea Extra Bright Makeup Clear Cleansing Water?
Repurchase – this is good but I have used better, so I would rather pick them above this.
Recommend – if you are a light makeup person, you can try this but heavy makeup would require some effort, so the decision is yours.
