Nivea Aqua Effect Face Wash Review-

I had tried this face wash long long time back and I am just reviewing it for you today :) You know, I have very oily and sensitive skin and I have to keep my skin oil free at all times, otherwise I get a lot of breakouts. This is my second face wash from Nivea after the Nivea Sparkling Glow face Wash. Lets see how the Nivea Aqua Effect Face Wash worked for me...

Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash Review

Product Claims-
• Cleanses deeply and respects skin own moisture balance
• Invigorates the skin with its refreshing formula
• The formula with vitamin E is mild on skin


Nivea Aqua Effect Face Wash Product Information

Shelf life- 30 months

Price- Rs. 99 for 75 ml 

Directions for Use- Apply gently to wet face neck and décolleté by massaging in small upward circles avoiding the eye area. Rinse of with lukewarm water.

My take On Nivea Aqua Effect Face Wash-

This face wash comes in a whitish-blue tube through which the quantity of face wash left in the tube can be seen easily. The cap is almost sturdy but do put a few strips of sellotape on the cap, if you carry this out with you. The face wash smells floral and mild. The fragrance won't bother those with sensitive noses at all. The face wash is almost colour-less and has a very light tinge of blue in it. This face wash will suit those with normal skin, this is what the tube says! However, it worked decently on my oily, sensitive and acne prone skin.

This face wash contains an ingredient, which we all hate- Parabens!

The face wash lathers nicely and a you will need a very small amount per use. It cleans the skin effectively and this mild face wash did not cause any breakouts my oily, sensitive skin. This is a decent face wash overall but sadly it contains Phenoxyethanol and parabens too! I wish it was paraben free. Parabens do cause a lot of harm to the delicate skin. Also, you will literally need a bucket of water to rinse it off :-P It leaves behind a slight slippery feel, which I do not like at all. However, it did not dry out my skin and this is just a normal face wash- mild and decent.

PROS-

1) Sturdy Cap
2) Mild fragrance
3) Cleans the skin effectively
4) Did not cause pimples
5) Very affordable
6) Did not dry out my skin excessively
7) Lathers nicely

Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash Swatch- The face wash is very very light blue in color...

CONS-

1) Contains Parabens and Phenoxyethanol
2) Leaves a slippery feel behind
3) Rinsing it off is time consuming as a lot of water is needed to remove it
4) Won't help much if you have pimples

Final verdict- You can buy this face wash because it is mild, affordable, cleans the skin nicely and does not dry out the skin. However, you can not skip your moisturizer after using this. But do not expect it do heal of prevent acne or anything. This is a pocket friendly face wash which does its job well.

Rating- 3.5/5
