Nivea BB Cream – a daily must-have for me

There are days when I don’t feel the need or I’m not in the mood to use foundation. I like to wear something to even out my face, moisturize and protect it from the damaging weather conditions. So I apply a BB cream. Tonight  I will talk to you about one of my favourites: Nivea BB Cream in Light (the newer version with a lighter light shade).

NIVEA BB (Blemish Balm) Cream with Minerals, Provitamin B5 and a hint of
make-up provides all skin types in one simple step with a flawless
complexion and an instantly healthy looking and beautiful skin in one
simple step.

It comes in a plastic tube of 50 ml and has a valability of 12 months. It promises to: Cover imperfections such as blemishes, signs of fatigue, dark eye
circles, reddish skin colour and fine lines. Illuminates complexion,
boosting skin’s natural glow. Provides light, fast absorbing moisture. Helps to protect the skin from sunlight induced environmental influences and premature ageing with SPF 10.

Instructions for use: Apply cream on cleansed face by gently massaging in small circles, avoiding the eye area. I use it with my beloved Sigma F80 kabuki brush. 

It has a thicker consistency and it is quickly absorbed into the skin. It has the specific Nivea cream smell that I love, but if you’re not into perfumed creams or this specific scent, this BB cream is not for you. It has a decent coverage for a BB cream, you can add another layer or use it as a base followed by a foundation for a medium/high coverage.

I usually wait a little to sink into the skin, then I proceed with my make-up. I have a combination skin so I have to powder no matter what base I’m wearing. With the powder and blush on, this BB cream stays onto the skin until the evening when I remove my make-up. And yes I get oily onto my forehead and chin, but this happens to me with almost all my foundations, except for Double Wear.

After removing some of it, it was too much for my small test

I think you can see by yourself that it has indeed a nice coverage.

All in all, Nivea BB Cream is a good product, it nourishes, it evens out the skin, it has a decent coverage, it has a 10 SPF protection (barely decent in the winter time but not enough for the summer) and all at a very good price range. And if you love the specific Nivea smell is even better! I give it the B grade – if you are looking for a good quality BB cream at a decent price you can try this one!
