REVIEW | NIVEA Make up remover for the shower -- DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

A while ago, while I was picking up my regular bathroom supplies I noticed a product that I'd never seen before. The NEW yellow label caught my eye and made me really curious about this product --  A Makeup removing product to use IN THE SHOWER. Being the lazy girl that I am, I never take off my make up before getting into the shower. I just go straight in, take a shower like I normal would -- this includes washing my face with whatever face wash I'm using at the time. And usually when I get out and dry my face with a towel, all my make up ends up on that towel because the face wash didn't really did a good job removing it. We've all been there, don't lie! On a daily basis I don't wear a lot of make up -- just concealer, brow-stuff and mascara. And usually getting out the mascara is what gives me more trouble. If it's not completely off it goes all over my towel.  And make up is so hard to remove from clothes that I absolutely thought that this product could be a life safer.


The instructions on the bottle make it sound pretty straight forward -- they suggest you should apply the product to your face directly with circular motions, rinse it thoroughly and all the make up is gone.
Well ... honestly that didn't quite work for me. Yes, it release some of the make up but nothing that my regular face-wash wouldn't do. It didn't to any magic with the mascara -- it ran all around my eyes, giving me pretty huge panda eyes...



But dying to make this product work, the next day I decided to try it out with a sponge that I often use to exfoliate my skin. I squirted some product onto the sponge and tried to remove my make up with with it. And yes, this got me some better results -- most of the make up was gone, and it got transferred to the sponge, and no panda eyes. But I don't think this success is the work of the product as much as it is the work of the sponge, because I think I would get exactly the same result with any other product combined with that sponge. 

Not everything is bad. As all Nivea products, it smells really nice, it has a hint of that classical blue tin Nivea cream smell.  I love the texture, it's something in between a cream and gel, super smooth and easy to apply.


The new label actually is misleading. That label, combined with the fact that I've never seen any ads for this product made me think that this was in fact a new thing on the market, but no. After some research I found some reviews from 2016 but I'm pretty sure that I'd never heard of this before! I think that this product never worked as intend and Nivea just kept it on the selves so that suckers like me would still buy it. It sounded too good to be true. Don't waste your money.

  2. Yeap, it's not really new on the market...
    I've seen it when it came out and immediately went online to check for reviews: the majority bad, stating the same you did here.

    As much as I love "the Nivea smell", it became an instant no, for me.

    Anyway, thank you so much for the follow, I've followed you back!

  5. Olha, uso um esfoliante facial diário da Cien e é a melhor coisa. Já vi reviews a dizer que não esfolia nada, que tem poucas partículas esfoliantes mas eu adoro. A ideia é ser minimamente suave para usar diariamente, também não queremos ficar com a cara em sangue. Eu uso especialmente para tirar a maquilhagem no banho. Ponho um bocadinho nas mãos e lavo a cara normalmente. Quando saio do banho não fico com olhos de panda nem suja a toalha. Às vezes, com algumas máscaras, é preciso depois ir remover pequenos resquícios com um disco de algodão, mas nada de especial. É bom e barato. Não vale a pena o dinheirão desses produtos todos fancy que depois nem funcionam, para o uso que lhe dou.

  6. Olá! :)

    Como eu não uso maquilhagem, este produto para mim pouco serve. Mas no geral costumo gostar dos produtos da Nivea...

    Obrigada pela visita ao nosso blogue. Já segui também! :)
    Beijinhos e bom fim-de-semana!

  10. Eu sou igual, chego ao banho e tento tirar a maquilhagem com o que estiver mais à mão ahaha Já reparei que geralmente é mesmo mais o trabalho da esponja que ajuda a desmaquilhar e que qualquer óleo ou creme facial serve para o efeito, então há meses que não compro desmaquilhante e ando a terminar os óleos naturais que tenho cá por casa :)
