NIVEA Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream pampers your skin overnight leaving it looking healthy, radiant and smooth the next morning. Providing skin with 48h moisture, this overnight detox night cream comes with bio green tea extract, anti-oxidant and hyaluronic acid. On top of the lightweight formula, NIVEA’s overnight detox moisturizer also invigorates your senses with a refreshing scent.
My Experience with Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream:
The product comes in a blue green cardboard box. There is a lot of information on the box. The tub containing the product sits inside the box. The cream comes in a wide mouthed bright green tub with a blue screw cap similar to the outside package. There is a seal which ensures purity. The brand name is engraved on the cap of the tub but other than the name, there is no information available on the tub. Since it is a tub package, it can be a little unhygienic and I use it immediately after my face wash as my hands are still clean. The product is sleek and the small package makes it travel-friendly.
The gel cream is green in color and has a gel creme like consistency. It is very lightweight. The product smells very fresh but is mild. The texture of the cream feels like Aloe! The product when applied melts away like water and gets absorbed very well. Even though it doesn’t leave a greasy residue, it leaves a wet like look which gets absorbed in 15-20 seconds. Once completely absorbed, the skin looks matte and shine-free.
The product makes the skin very soft and supple. It doesn’t cause any irritation and is suitable for all skin types. The product doesn’t cause any breakouts either. The product does add a freshness and radiance to the skin. The skin feels plump with the moisture from the cream. It is non-sticky and you can hardly feel it on skin.
Even though the product adds moisture on the skin and considering that it is a night cream, I expected that the product would provide an intense moisturization. However, the cream dries off on my skin within 2-3 hours and I do feel a little dry. So, the first question that arises is that whether the cream is suitable only for normal-oily skin or is it a summer cream? The product is not nourishing enough for the dry weather and dry skin. It does cause dry flakes within a few hours due to the lack of moisture. I have been following up with a face oil after the application to increase the moisture effect. The product does tone the skin and I have noticed some changes in my skin tone. But, the claim of 48h moisture fails for me! So summing up

- Makes skin soft and smooth.

Cons of Nivea Daily Essentials Urban Skin Detox +48H Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream:

IMBB Rating: 3/5
