As we know, we need to protect our skin from the harmful UV sun rays in order to keep it looking young and avoid wrinkles and dark spots. I only started wearing day creams with SPF a few years ago but I won't be without it now.
This time I decided to give Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream a try, as it mentions that moisturises and protects for a fresh skin feeling, and also contains SPF 15. Having being blessed with oily skin, I went for the "normal & combination" version of this day cream as the one for oily skin does not provide any sun protection (why do they do this?!).
Nivea Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream is enriched with vitamin E, Lotus extract and Hydra IQ; and claims to provide intensive moisture, help protect from sun damage thanks to its SPF 15, and refresh the skin.
What I noticed the first time I used it was that the consistency is not very light (well it is a day cream) I thought it would be more like a lotion because of the light in the name. Then I realised it is heavily scented, and the perfume lasts almost all day which I don't like.
It does moisturise and protect from the sun but I wish this was lighter in texture, more mattifying (perhaps the oily/combination version would do that?) and less perfumed. I think people with normal or even dry skin would benefit from this product the most, but stay away if you are fragrance sensitive.
Overall an average product and I don't think I would buy it again as it doesn't help control shine, unfortunately.
Have you tried this day cream?
