Refreshing and smooth
I enjoyed using the NIVEA face wash gel. It was really smooth on my skin. You don’t need a make up remover as this product cleanse your face snd removes make up. I don’t usally like a gel based face wash sonce I find them to be dry my skin, removing oils. But this face wash was really gentle and didn’t dry my skin on the contrary it hydrated my skin.
The scent is really nice and not strong.
I have tried many face washs over the years & i can say this is really good for gently cleaning the face and keeping it nourished !
It is so affordable to continue using in the future and recommending it to family and friends.
Overall Good Product
This is overall a good product. It removed make up and debris, although I occasionally was required to do more than one wash to get off harder products, like mascara. I wasn’t a fan of the scent, just because I prefer products without harsh artificial scents added, although it didn’t prove to be irritating. It is definitely mild enough for daily use and is good for all skin types. There is nothing profound that this face wash provided and it similar to many other drugstore face wash products. For the price, it is a decent quality and does what it says it does.
A good, everyday cleanser
I have been using this cleanser for about a week now, just at night in the shower. It lathers up nicely and takes off my makeup with ease but it doesn't leave my skin tight or dry feeling. It does have that distinct Nivea smell, so I guess it would be one to avoid if you are sensitive to fragrances. I don't usually buy Nivea products but this one would be one that I would repurchase. It is affordable, it does a good job at cleansing and removing makeup and it does not strip the skin. There is a decent amount of product as well so it will last ages with daily use.
Pretty good, but a bit too stripping
I really like the packaging of this product, with the calming blue colour matching the gel and the pretty lotus flower.
The gel itself reminds me of a hand or body soap, and in my opinion acts in a very similar way. It foamed up slightly as I applied it which made it easy to use and soft to the touch. I loved the smooth feel of it on my face, but as I washed it off, I could feel my face squeaking as it was so clean. Too clean in my opinion, as it felt it left my face really dry and stripped.
Because of how much it stripped my face, I wouldn't recommend using it everyday, but as an occasional face cleaner, it does a pretty good job.
The packaging states it 'deeply cleanses', but I think this could be worded differently since it didn't deeply clean my pores, just the skin on the surface.
Overall, I probably wouldn't buy this product for my skin type, but it does a pretty good job compared to other products.
Gentle and good for daily use
It works well as an everyday cleanser l that doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped of moisture but still has it feeling clean. Although I found the scent pleasant at times it was slightly overbearing for the amount being used but the overbearing-ness doesn’t linger for long. The gel consistency lathers nicely and doesn’t create a large amount of suds if any at all, which personally I favour. I’d recommend this cleaning for morning use and if you were to use it at night and wear cosmetics during the day it would work well alongside a cleansing oil or clean using water as I found that it struggles to remove makeup
Not for sensitive skin.
This is an okay cleanser but it has a lot of cons in my opinion. It removes makeup, dirt and oils quite well and skin feels clean after use. The scent is far too strong, however, and unnecessary in this type of product. On first use I had no issues other than the scent. But after using it twice daily I noticed my skin becoming increasingly sensitive and my usual skincare would sting to apply. This stopped when I took a break from the cleanser. I don't recommend this product for sensitive skin types. The packaging works well and is easy to use. The design on the bottle isn't very appealing, but it's classic Nivea. This face wash honestly isn't that different or better than Nivea's other face washes. I think they missed the mark with this release.
Package is cute. Love how it's clear and the color is so calming. When I first opened it, I really enjoyed the smell of the product. The texture is thick and a little amount does a big job. I believe it cleans my skin really well. It does leave my skin sometimes dry but I just add some moisturize after using it. My skin did feel nice and soft after using it as well. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a deep clean. It works great. 5 stars. My mother even purchased it after I told her about it.
Good for daily use
It was a nice product to use to remove dirt and makeup off my skin. Even though it gave me a deep clean I was still able to remove some makeup when I was using toner on my face with a cotton pad. I would recommend this product to remove light daily make-up, sunscreen and dirt… probably would need something more deep cleansing if you were to have a full face of make-up like after an event. Also I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent I would prefer a skincare product with less scent as it made it feel a little fake.
Overall an okay product for daily use with an affordable price tag however I would prefer to use more higher end brands which I believe deep cleanse and remove all my makeup off my skin after each use.
I highly enjoyed using this cleansing gel - it truly is refreshing! The scent is not overpowering and it worked well on my combination skin as a daily cleanser. I found a little goes a long way and for the price of the product you can’t really go wrong. While it wasn’t overly hydrating it didn’t dry out or strip my skin. It also then layered or paired really nicely with my serums and moisturisers. I didn’t find it made a huge difference to my acne when used on its own which is why I’ve rated it 4 stars. However, those without acne prone skin might find a staple in this product which would be great for both day/night usage.
Refreshingly hydrating cleanser
I really loved this face wash! I don’t normally like a gel based face wash as I find them to be quite drying on my skin, stripping too many good oils away. But I found this face wash was to be surprisingly decadent, gentle and cleansing. With a very refreshing scent was a extra bonus. I also found it to be quite hydrating and it didn’t feel like my skin was dry afterwards. I will definitely be recommending this cleansing face gel to family and friends. At such a good price range it is so affordable to continue using in the future.
Effective Face Wash
I was fortunate to get on the trial team for the NIVEA Refreshing Face Wash Gel. and really liked this product.
I found the product was easy to dispense from the bottle, was easy to apply to the skin, and was very effective at removing my make-up. The product did make my skin feel a bit tight-ish after use, but if your looking for an effective make-up remover, this product will do the job. The scent was also nice.
In summary I would recommend this product to anyone who wants an effective face wash that can easily remove all your make up, and leave your skin feeling clean and fresh.
Great daily cleanser
LOVE this product! It's a great medium strength gel cleanser that you can use daily. My face becomes quite oily by the end of the day, so it's been great having this cleanser to use every day or two as it's effective and not too harsh or drying on the skin. My favourite thing about it is the lotus flower fragrance- it smells so soothing, relaxing and refreshing so I absolutely love using it!
The only downside is that if you needed to cleanse after a heavier amount of makeup, you'd probably need to go with a harsher product. It's very effective for de-greasing or cleansing off after a day of no-makeup though.
Love, love, this product!
OMG! This product surprised me beyond words.
I'll admit to being slightly judgy when it was the brand Nivea I was giving a go and not something from my usual Clinique or Murad ranges for skincare. I expected substandard and average. I was wrong. Way wrong.
Fresh, smooth, crisp and lathers up like back when you were 5 years old and going nuts in your Grandmas tub.
This wash is the ultimate for a fresh awakening in the morning or a get-the-grub-off-your-face cleanse in the evening. Leaves my skin feeling clean yet hydrated. None of that tight horrible feeling you get with soap products.
Highly recommend this product! The price is fabulous too!
Slippery cleanser, not for re-purchase
This product is good, but unfortunately not great. The first big turnoff is the colour of the packaging - it's incredibly 'plastic' looking and for something that you want to use on your face, this isn't a drawcard for me. The scent of this product is quote unique, but it does the job and did in fact work to wash and refresh my face, removing any makeup as it did so. It stung the eyes a little when used, however that's expected with most cleansers so not a deal breaker. The packaging is slippery and fell from my hands a few times in the shower. Considering the unique point of this product was the microbiome defence and protection, I was disappointed to feel my skin was a little tight after using it. I wouldn't buy again, as it wasn't as 'soft' as I would have liked - on skin and also aesthetically.
Great at properly cleaning the face
This face wash pretty much does what its supposed to. It washes off all the dirt, grease, makeup and grime off pretty well first go. Its a gel like consistency which slightly foams up a little bit when mixed with a bit of water. A little bit goes a long way so this bottle will last quiet a while. I love the calming subtle smell it has. The smell sort of relaxes me, getting me ready to sleep.
It has the words refreshing on the bottle. After use, I did feel refreshed but there was nothing extraordinary about that feeling. It was the same refreshing feeling as any other time when washing the face. I was disappointed as I was expecting to be hit back with a super refreshing feeling as my other face wash but this one just didn't deliver up to my expectations regarding the refreshed feeling.
If I was to just wash my face with this cleanser without moisturising, my face did feel a bit dry and dehydrated, especially since we are at the start of winter, so using a moisturiser afterwards is a must with this cleanser. This is obviously expected as the bottle does not mention that it is a moisturising cleanser.
I am pretty happy overall as it does clean my face properly which is the most important factor. The tube is easy to use, the smell is subtle and calming.
I would definitely recommend this face wash to anyone who wants a proper deep clean as this cleanser does not disappoint, especially if you are exposed to unclean environments with a lot of dirt, debris, cooking oils and heavy make up use. The best thing is that it is pretty cost efficient so its affordable and will last a while as it's generous in size.
Bang for your buck
Love love loved this face wash. I have quite dry skin and usually after I wash my face I need to moisturise almost instantly. But this face wash left my face clean and moisturised!
Its a nice thick gel so a little goes a long way, which is great for the bank account. Doesnt foam too much and stay one the skin in a nice layer so you can actually feel like it's doing its job.
My skin has had less break outs and definitely looks clear and glowy. Definitely love this product for my sensitive skin.
Has a very subtle fresh smell. Does not disappointed if you're looking for a gentle cleansing gel.
Will buy this product again as I was very satisfied with it.
Unfortunately hasn't worked for my skin
I usually am a HUGE fan of Nivea but unfortunately, this product wasn't for me. Although this product did feel refreshing the negatives outweighed the positives. A few seconds after imminent application my skin started to sting especially around my nose and upper lip. I found this extremely strange as this has never happened to my skin before and I don't have sensitive skin at all. After I washed the product off it didn't take long at all before my skin started to feel extremely dry, it was as though the product sucked all the moisture out of my face, which is again strange because my skin is on the oily side. I've also started to break out on my forehead too which may be a result from this product. I had high hopes for this but it just didn't work well for me - not to say the product itself is bad but just wasn't for my skin.
Hat's off to the team in the NIVIA lab
I've been using this face wash for about two weeks now, mostly at night (I'm a sucker for sleeping in so my morning routine is slap-dash at best!) It easily washes away a days worth of oils, foundation and sunscreen leaving my face feeling fresh and firm.
I'm not always the biggest fan of scented products for my face, but NIVIA have done a pretty good job at balancing the "fresh" smell and it doesn't seem to linger after use which is great. (Hat's off to the team over at the NIVIA lab.)
My skin tends to run on the dry side and fining a face wash that's not too harsh on oils can be tricky. So, when a reasonably priced product comes along and, honestly, out performs some of the quite a lot more expensive competition I'm always happy to recommend it to try!
I use it after my makeup remover. It doesn’t have too much foams and dry out my skin. It cleans the residual sunscreen and light makeup very well without. My skin feels hydrated and fresh after using this. I get similar result from this than using very expensive products. Very good value for cost.
It has the signature smell of NIVEA products but doesn’t leave a residual smell on my face after rinsing.
Hope NIVEA produces a non-fragrant version in the future and that would be my long term face wash.
Great product. I've been using this twice a day and follow up with a toner and a face oil. My face feels smoother and fresher. First of all a little goes a long with this face wash. I use a very little and wash my face with cold water. This leaves my face very refreshed and removes all the oiliness and any leftover make up my makeup remover didn't fully remove. Great price and does what it says. I've got my husband yo use it as he has combination skin and he loves it too. Great product from Nivea.
