I don’t know about you, but for me, discovering a skin care range exclusively for skin exposed to pollution, was a first. Now, I’m a city girl through and through, but pollution can be detrimental to our skin. Nivea Urban skin range is designed to protect against these damaging properties. They include a powerful mix of antioxidants and 48 hour hydration to help encourage healthier skin.
So, the range includes day and night moisturisers and a range of 1 minute detox masks. When used together, they revitalise and refine your skin.
How do they work?
NIVEA Daily Essentials Urban Skin 1 Minute Detox Masks refine and rebalance dull and tired skin by using potent clays and magnolia extract to draw out and capture impurities such as dirt, oil and pollution. Immediately, skin looks brighter and more purified with a healthy glow. I sampled the Moisturise and Purify masks (the Pore Refine, is best for oily skin). I found that they were incredibly easy so apply, you didn’t need a lot of product to cover your face. My favourite feature was simply the time, I was sceptical about a 1 minute mask, but now I’m converted. The clay consistency absorbs into your skin quickly, it naturally draws out impurities. When washed off, my skin was noticeably smoothly and clearer. I did find that the moisturise mask was preferable when my skin felt dry – as you would expect. I’ve been alternating between the two masks, depending on my daily needs. But, if you were to only purchase one, I would recommend the moisturising as it suited my dry, sensitive skin more.
NIVEA Daily Essentials Skin Defence Day Cream SPF 20 Skin is deeply moisturised for 48hours and nourished while the skins’ complexion looks radiant and brighter.
NIVEA Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox Night Cream enhances skin regeneration overnight by stimulating upper skin layer cellular detoxification through active ingredients that help reduce the accumulation of toxins in cells. By the morning the signs of fatigue disappear and the skin is visibly smoother and supple.
The consistency of the moisturisers is like none I’ve seen before. It’s like a gel, but also jelly and a cream? It’s smooth but not runny, cooling but not stiff. I love it! I particularly noticed that I didn’t get excess product – meaning value for money. I believe it calmed my sensitive skin due to the cooling nature of it’s consistency. The overnight mask is so nourishing, my skin was clear and baby soft in the morning without any need for rinsing.
