When it comes to selecting a daily cleanser, you need something that will effectively remove makeup, dirt and impurities, while still being gentle enough to use on skin at least once a day – all this without completely stripping it of all moisture, too.
A pick that doesn’t break the bank is always a nice bonus as well, because let’s be real, if you’re gonna use the stuff everyday, you don’t want to have to fork out a small loan to keep your skin clean.
The NIVEA Daily Essentials range ticks all of the boxes above and with three skin-specific formulations to choose from. From sensitive skin-friendly to oil-combatting, there’s something for everyone.
Introducing NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Wash Cream; a dry-skinned gal’s best friend, this pick is enriched with almond oil and highly purified water for a gentle cleanse that won’t compromise your skin barrier, NIVEA Refreshing Face Wash Gel; enriched with lotus flower and Vitamin E for a deeply effective cleanse that refreshes skin, and NIVEA Purifying Wash Scrub; a pure-purifying pick that includes ocean algae, purified water and dissolvable exfoliating beads.
Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about these budget-friendly cleansers.
Beauty Crew sent the NIVEA Daily Essentials range to a panel of women aged 20 to 30 who have either normal to dry skin or oily to combination skin.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the NIVEA Daily Essentials range.
NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Wash Cream: Our members liked how gentle the formula was on their skin as well as their wallets. For just $11 they were able to enjoy an effective cleanse that did not strip the skin or leave it feeling dry or uncomfortable.
NIVEA Refreshing Face Wash Gel: Reviewers recommend this pick for those looking for a clarifying cleanser that effectively removes makeup and impurities without the need for a second cleanse.
NIVEA Purifying Wash Scrub: Members liked that the scrub wasn’t too harsh but still cleansed skin well, saying they liked this 2-in-1 product for removing their makeup, dirt and impurities at the end of the day.
