Nivea Aqua Effect Moisturizing Day Cream SPF 15 is for normal to mixed skin. It is perfect to use for fall and spring. During summer, it felt a bit heavy on the skin and I think that during winter, it’s better to use nourishing cream instead of moisturizing. Right now it feels great on the skin. The cream doesn’t have a strong smell, which is good.
Enriched with Vitamin E and Hydra IQ, it provides the skin intensive moisture and leaves it feeling fresh.
My routine is as follows: First I clean the skin and apply the cream gently padding with the fingers. It is quite quickly absorbed by the skin, but I still prefer to wait one hour before applying foundation. Before applying foundation or BB cream, I use a napkin to get rid of excess cream or oils.
Apply on cleansed and toned face by gently massaging in small circular motions.
The cream does a good job of moisturizing as I don’t feel any dryness in my skin during the day. There’s also a night moisturizing cream from the same line, but I haven’t tried it yet.
