Review Crew® had to say about this effective cleansing option.

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / October 15 2020

The product

There’s a fine line between an effective cleanse and a dry tight complexion - especially when you have sensitive skin.

NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Wash Cream cuts through makeup, dirt and impurities in a flash without stripping skin of much-needed moisture. Plus, with an uber low price point, it’s one you can easily add to your supermarket trolley on your next grocery run.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this gentle cleanser to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Wash Cream to a panel of women aged 18 to 35 with dry and sensitive skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about NIVEA Gentle Cleansing Wash Cream.

The gentle, creamy texture: Members loved how gentle and comforting the cleanser was to use on their skin without drying or stripping, leaving them with a baby soft complexion.

Effective on stubborn makeup: Our reviewers were impressed by how thorough the cleanser was at swiping through stubborn makeup at the end of a long day. Some members who prefer to double cleanse said they continued to do so but didn’t think it was necessary.

The price point: Our members love a bargain and this offering from NIVEA certainly hits the mark in that regard, coming in at a cool $10 bucks a pop.

The verdict

“This cleanser is perfect for dry skin! It smells lovely and the creamy texture easily washes off makeup while leaving the skin soft unlike some other cleansers which dry out the skin and leave it feeling dehydrated. Would definitely get this again.”

“The creamy texture was beautiful to work into the skin and afterwards, it felt soft and nourished. It worked the most effectively on my eye area — I have sensitive eyes and I avoid rubbing my eye-makeup off roughly, fearing it may induce fine lines. This would be the perfect match for those who hate the feeling of 'stripped' skin after cleansing and for those who have dry and rough skin.”

“I have found that my skin feels softer after using the cleanser and I no longer have areas of dry and flaky skin on my cheeks. The formula does not irritate my skin like many other cleansers on the market, nor does it leave that tight skin feeling. I would recommend this to anyone who wants softer and more hydrated skin.”
