I think the most troubled people on this planet earth are the ones who have oily-combination skin like me. If you wash your face even with the mildest of foaming cleansers, 4-5 times a day to get rid of the oiliness and shine, you tend to have dry patches on your skin after some time. If you do not wash your face, then you have a shiny/oily face which makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. I always look out for things which make me feel fresh for a long time so that I do not have to look into the mirror every now and then to check if everything is okay or not. I am into a habit of following CTM routine twice daily, once in the morning and once before hitting the bed. I had been using Biotique Cucumber Water for a long time, but recently, it started irritating my eyes even if a bit went into the eyes. This was the reason I had to ditch my HG toner and I started looking for something which makes me comfortable without any tingling and irritation to skin and eyes.
I have had some good experiences with Nivea products in the past and heard a lot of people with oily skin raving about Nivea toners and face washes, so I bought a few goodies from Nivea. Here I am reviewing “Nivea Visage Sparkling Glow Fairness Toner” which has become my new favorite now.
Nivea Visage Sparkling Glow Fairness Toner Lightens and Clarifies for a radiant fair skin. It thoroughly clarifies the skin while making it fairer, without drying it out.
Apply with a cotton pad on a cleansed face and neck avoiding eye area. Does not clog pores. Skin compatibility dermatologically tested.

This toner comes in a cute slim bottle which is made up of shimmery white plastic. It is actually very cute to look at. The bottle comes with a flip cap which is easy to handle, neither too tight nor to loose, just perfect. You can look through the bottle and it is easy to see how much product is left inside.
My Experience with Nivea Visage Sparkling Glow Fairness Toner:
I have been using this toner for almost 15 days now and I am kind of okay with it. Not perfectly satisfied, but yes, in some aspects, it has just been up to the mark. It controls the shine for a long time once applied in the morning using a cotton pad after cleansing the face thoroughly. After this, I apply my normal sunscreen. I feel that the moment I apply this toner, my skin becomes soft, supple and refreshed.
I do not feel any drying effect and can manage even without applying anything after that. It necessarily does not live up to the claim of making skin fairer, but yes, it does impart some radiance to the skin. To be very frank, I did not use it for fairness factor. I have not experienced any rashes or skin eruptions after using this. Though it contains alcohol, yet it does not irritate my skin and it does not sting at all. The toner has the trademark faint Nivea smell which I love by heart. Overall, I am happy with the results it is giving me.
Pros of Nivea Visage Sparkling Glow Fairness Toner:
- Refreshing smell.
- Instantly makes the skin feel light and fresh.
- Removes the last trace of impurity from the face.
- Does not sting.
- One bottle will easily last for 2 months even if used twice-thrice daily.
- Cute packaging.
Cons of Nivea Visage Sparkling Glow Fairness Toner:
- Contains alcohol and parabens, but I am okay with that as far as they keep the oil at bay.
Finally, I would like to say that please do not expect miracles to happen with this toner, but yes, this is worth trying and it will live up to the promises which it claims. Would surely help dry skin people also as it is non-drying.
