Nivea Express Hydration Primer - £4.99
Well girls, Nivea has saved my skin once again! I've loved their products for so long now and they continue to keep bringing out these amazingly good products that are also so good for your money. In the past I've tried my fair share of brands, but nothing seems to keep me hooked and I always go back to good old Nivea. I absolutely love their tinted moisturiser and do rely on it quite a bit. I saw an advert on the television for their new skin care range and as soon as I saw this product I was like "I have to try it!" A moisturiser and a primer in one? I'm sold...
Nivea say The Express Hydration Primer moisturises and provides a base for make-up by smoothing the skin's surface. As well as this, it also helps keep your make-up in place throughout the day. I couldn't wait to try it and literally rushed to Tesco at the first free moment I had. It is actually on offer at the minute at £4.99, so I'd snap it up now before everyone else does. I got the Normal & Combination skin type, but I think they also do a sensitive skin version too.
The cream has quite a thick consistency but to be honest that doesn't really bother me much, it makes my skin feel like it's working more, if you get me? It's super easy to rub in and absorbs really quickly. You really don't need a lot to feel the benefits, I use a small lump and only lightly cover my skin with it. It smells fresh and clean too, if that makes sense, and literally makes your skin feel so soft as soon as you rub it in. As a moisturiser I think its amazing, and as a primer I think it lives up to expectations. My make-up feels fresher as the day goes on and I find that I don't have to touch it up as much as I usually do.
Overall I'm so impressed with the quality of this cream, and even thought I've only been using it for a few days I can tell it's already changed my skin. It seems to feel a lot softer and fresher all of a sudden and my make-up really does stay on a lot longer. I love this product, as I honestly thought I would. Well done again Nivea, you beauty!
