This morning I tried Nivea Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturiser for the first time - I was thinking I would use it as a base and put my usual gunk over the top - but then on looking in the mirror I realised my skin looked flawless just from using the Nivea . I just popped to the loo and did a double take at myself in the mirror - my skin still looks amazing!
Just wanted to share as I am very very that something so cheap could be so amazing
Honestly, I am truly amazed. Usually I need a good gloop of foundation & concealer every morning to make me look human and by lunchtime it's half disappeared and my nose is all shiny -but today I still look perfect - no touch up necessary at all!
I bought two tubes a couple of weeks ago because it was 2 for 1 and found it too dark. The first day I put it on I caught myself in the mirror on the way out and had to go back upstairs and wash it off.
I now use a tiny dot mixed with another moisturiser and it's not too bad, but still not the even, dewy look I used to get with Botanics Face Renewal Cream with SPF15. Gutted that Boots have discontinued it .
Every once and awhile I think " Maybe I should try Laura Mercier or one of the other foundations/ tinted moisturisers that everyone goes on about " but frankly I can't imagine it being much better than the Nivea.
