In a world where innovators are dreaming up new sustainable, natural and environmentally-friendly beauty options every day, it’s reassuring that caring for the planet doesn’t have to break the bank.
Case and point? The NIVEA WonderBAR range, which couples a minimum of 99 per cent certified natural ingredients with a 100 per cent vegan and 100 per cent microplastics free biodegradable formula. Oh, and did we mention it also has 60 per cent less water than a typical cleanser and is 97.6 per cent plastic free with recyclable packaging? Yeah, they thought of everything.
Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about the Nivea WonderBAR Hydrating, Nivea WonderBAR Blackhead scrub, Nivea WonderBAR Anti Pimple, and Nivea WonderBAR Sensitive cleansing bars.
Beauty Crew sent the NIVEA WonderBAR range to a panel of women aged between 18 and 24 with an interest in natural and environmentally-friendly beauty, and a sustainability mindset. REVIEWcrew® members with normal or normal to combination skin types received either the Nivea WonderBAR Hydrating, Nivea WonderBAR Blackhead scrub or Nivea WonderBAR Anti Pimple, while those with normal to sensitive skin received Nivea WonderBAR Sensitive.
Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the NIVEA WonderBAR Range.
NIVEA WonderBAR Blackhead Scrub: Those of our members with persistent blackheads and pimples said they loved how thoroughly they were able to cleanse their skin, eliminating excess oil, sebum, dirt and product build-up. However, some members with drier skin said they would have opted for one of the more hydrating formulations in the range instead, as it left their skin feeling a little too squeaky clean for their liking.
NIVEA WonderBAR Hydrating: Our members found that the hydrating formula was the perfect pick for normal to combination skin types, delivering an effective daily cleanse that didn’t strip, dry or promote redness post-cleanse. Our reviewers also really like the sustainable aspect of the product.
NIVEA WonderBAR Sensitive: The preferred selection for those of our members with sensitive and dry skin types, this pick helped our members embrace a sustainable-friendly cleansing routine without stripping their skin or further irritating their skin. In fact, a number of our members noted a reduction in redness and particularly angry pimples as a result of introducing the WonderBAR to their routine.
NIVEA WonderBAR Anti Pimple Scrub: When it comes to pimple-clearing cleansers, a number of our reviewers are understandably skeptical. But many were soon pleasantly surprised by the formula’s efficacy, saying that they noticed a distinct reduction in pimples and potential breakouts in as little as two weeks.
