When I first purchased this I was very excited it would be as good as I thought it would be but I am still unsure about it! The smell is gorgeous and makes your skin smell lovely however I found it far too shimmery! You cant apply it like a normal moisturiser and I only noticed when I was in sunlight and saw my face was covered in glittery specs! was a bit too full on with shimmer and not a natural look, shame as the the actual cream is fantastic just the over-shimmer lets it down.
Usually use "premium" products, but found this cream to be as good. Smells lovely and did not irritate my usually sensitive skin. Goes on lovely too. Have found myself going out with NO foundation!!! (which I haven't done for at least 15 years!) Will be buying again, a real beauty steal :)
absoulutley love this product. i have normal skin and strangely i cannot find a mosturiser that does not make my skin oily, untill i bought this. it makes ur skin soft, and beautiful. it also smells sooooo nice..worth eight pounds ten times over :D
This cream has the potential to be amazing but sadly I was not amazed! I have combination skin and found that after applying the cream my face felt very tight and dry. Does not really sit well under makeup and you can not mix it with other creams easily.. On a plus side the smell and shimmer is beautiful!
I bought this product after I read the positive view here on the site and must agree: It is a good cream, easy to apply and smells great. It has little "sparkling" particles in it which gives your skin that glow. However, if you have dry skin this lotion would not be enough as it is very light.
I used this on my wedding day and it was PERFECT!! It gave my skin that lovely, dewy, luminated, fresh look that we all crave, especially after a stressful week and sleepless nights!! Even after applying my foundation it still looked stunning and kept my temperamental skin looking gorgeous all day... a brilliant beauty find and well worth the money, especially as you normally pay a lot more for products that produce results like this one does
this cream is really good, when i use it, it makes me feel so much better then any foundation. i dont wear foundation because i dont want to spoil the glow it gives my face. i would recommend it to every woman.
My daughter (19) bought this by accident, I had a tryand am now hooked. It looks shimmery in the pot, smells gorgeously of mango and leaves a subtle shimmer to the skin. It feels like treat every time you use it.
I found this moisturiser great for under makeup and just on it's own. I have very dry skin, but found that this moisturiser works well with my night one. I don't think I'd wear this alone for school, but as I said it works the same under foundation still giving the natural glowing look. I think this moisturiser would be perfect for holidays, as I find I only need a moisturiser on holiday.
I couldn't wait to try this cream but I was disappointed. It is too runny and doesn't moisturise enough (and I'm in my 20s, with combination skin). It has glitter in it, which I dislike. Also the smell is too strong. So overall, disappointing and I now use the white Nivea facial cream, which I much prefer.
I love a bit of 'light reflecting pigments' in my moisturiser but this was almost too much for me. The product itself is lovely, nice consistency, nice smell but really quite shimmery. I also have the eye cream and have started using that as a cream highlighter instead! This cream does work wonders as a base for tinted moisturiser (I use the nivea one) or foundation. I do have a tendency for dry skin and this cream did not quite provide enough moisture for everyday use.
All in all it is great for normal skin and people looking for a bit of shimmer.
Lovely light whipped texture like more expensive creams and works well on my combination skin. Another reviewer said their foundation didn't go on very well but I let the moisturiser soak in before applying any other make up and it goes on perfectly. (but I do this with all face creams)
I have read a few of the other reviews what I have noticed is that alot of the other reviewers kept saying that it's "too shimmery" trust me it isn't! I barely notice it at all! especially if it's not a sunny day! anyway I really like this moisturiser because it keeps my skin soft all day long, it doesn't clog my pores so it doesn't give me any spots & it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin! (yay!) I love the smell of this moisturiser too! (probably that typical nivea smell!) I would Defenitly recommend this product!
Advantages: moisturising great for sensitive skin, & doesn't clog my pores! :)
