Oh my god my skin looks amazing!

And it only cost me £4 (ish).

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 shock. 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 shock that something so cheap could be so amazing smile

I love this stuff.... I look out for offers and it's even cheaper.

It's fab isn't it! Sadly it gave me big red spots on my already acne prone skin so I've stopped using it, but it is lovely <wistful>

Making a mental note. My skin is spot prone and I'm always on the lookout for a miracle fix to hide it without making me look too 'done'.

Thanks OP, will purchase. Do you know if it has SPF?

badtasteyoni Wed 17-Apr-13 13:05:29

Yes it says it is SPF 8.

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 sad.

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.

Quenelle I can imagine it could be dark for some people - I have quite dark/olive skin tone (mediterranean roots) and the colour is perfect for me.

I have the same mediterranean colouring so I thought it would be ok. Maybe my skin is getting lighter with age.
