Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash Review


Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash


Hello ladies, enjoying Monsoons? You know what this period of the year is my favorite time- grey clouds, cool breeze, frequent drizzling and greenery around. Rainy season is perhaps the most soothing gift to us by kind Mother Nature.

Coming to today’s review which is about Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face Wash. My Sister in Law who visited us along with Aunt was using it. Looking at my pimple prone and super oily skin, she asked me to try this facewash for a few days and see whether it will make some difference or not? So is this an effective facewash which makes a visible difference in my skin tone or not, read on to know more.

My take on Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Facewash:

This face wash is in gel form, transparent with very slight bluish tinge and has very tiny bluish beads. The fragrance of the face wash is pleasant and lingers on for some time post washing the face wash. The face wash is in gel form which is a bit runny in consistency.

The gel is easy to work with and can be washed away easily without leaving any oily or soapy residue behind.

However this gel didn’t lathers much, so somehow I feel that this gel is way too gentle to remove all the impurities and I also don’t get squeaky clean feel post washing this gel off from my face.

This face wash doesn’t irritate my skin but at the same time it is also not helping to control oil/sebum secretion or putting a check on my acne.

After using it for 10 days I find it an average face wash and am not very much impressed with this one.

What I don’t like about Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Face wash:

  • Not an effective face wash as it didn’t removes all the impurities or waterproof makeup from skin.

Rating: 2.5/5

Shall I recommend Nivea Aqua Effect Purifying Facewash?

Nope. As already mentioned this is just an average face wash on account of its way too gentle nature, so honestly I don’t have any specific reasons to recommend it to you.
