Product review: NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls

I recently wrote about splurging out on Aesop products and loving how clear they made my skin. Turns out they were too harsh for me. After a week my skin was dry, scaly and stung when I put some jojoba oil on to try and rectify the problem. I’m heartbroken because I love the Aesop products and because I spent a fucking fortune on them. Gutted. I hope we’ve all learnt a lesson from my mistake. TESTERS, people.

So until further notice I have put the face wash and toner on hold and am just applying the Camellia Nut Cream in the mornings and using a lighter Nivea night cream.

In addition to this change up in my face care, I also added a Nivea Anti-Wrinkle serum, a splurge purchase, you understand. I know, I know. Only face lifts and botox can really rid you of wrinkles. Well I’m here to slap that myth away. Well maybe not completely – I think the addition of a serum and drinking bucket loads of water each day merely plumps up your skin giving the affect of less wrinkles – while never really taking them away. Should you be dehydrated, those Grand Canyon gorges will show themselves again all over your lovely face. BUT I have found, after three days of morning and night use, that my skin is much smoother, less lined and more youthful. I was amazed – because I’m always sceptical about the beauty industry and their lies.

When it first comes out of the bottle it looks like scrambled eggs. Not appealing. But it smells¬†lovely and fresh¬†and spreads on easily – you don’t need a lot. Pop it on after cleansing and follow with your normal moisturiser. I’m kicking myself for not having taken a before photo.
