NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls
The NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls have just hit shelves and are promising to reduce the signs of wrinkles as well as minimize the formation of new lines and wrinkles. You may have heard of Q10 before, Nivea have been using this ingredient for over a decade to help women fight the visible signs of ageing. This strange looking formula contains Nivea’s most concentrated levels of Q10 ever released on the market.
The NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls consists of a clear gel formula in which soft yellow “pearls” of serum are suspended. Once dispensed via the pump the serum mixes with the clear gel and creates a fresh batch of mixed serum ready to be applied to your face.
The first time I used the product I was a little surprised at its appearance, its thick, yellow consistency looked and felt a little lumpy ( I could have sworn it was creamed corn) Rubbing the product between your hands leads to the pearls disappearing into a clear and slippery serum. It is quite heavily fragranced but the scent is fresh and clean and inoffensive but those who have issues with fragranced products take note.
The high levels of Q10 and Hyaluronic Acid (the skincare ingredient that absorbs water and makes you feel “moisturised”) meant that skin feels and looks refreshed and “plumped” after use.
Ive used the NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls daily for about two weeks and have found that the area around my eyes in particular have been looking less crepey and plumper. I typically used this both morning and night underneath my regular moisturiser (currently the Mario Badescu Buttermilk moisturiser) and found that together they worked well at keeping my skin looking and feeling more moisturised particularly in the morning. I experienced no disruption from this product to my foundation or any other base makeup and my sensitive skin experienced no tingling, redness, discomfort or break outs (hooray)
Ive adopted the NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls into my regular skin care regime and will continue to use it as Im curious to see what long term effects it will have on my dehydrated and * gulp* 35 year old skin.
