I have been getting e-mails and comments asking me how I keep my skin clear. The answer is good genes, a normal diet (I can’t really say healthy because I live for junk food! *lol*), lots of water and a good skincare regime. Right now my HG skincare line is nothing but the cheap yet effective Nivea Visage that is widely available at Boots and Superdrugs. Below are a list of products that I use daily:
Nivea Visage Aqua Sensation Moisturizing Gel-Cream (£4.99)
This is definitely a godsend! It works just as great as Biotherm Aquasource but costs at least half as much. It contains cucumber extract, ginseng and magnesium to provide 24 hour hydration and it feels very light and refreshing on the skin. I apply a thin layer of this all over my face every night and my skin is instantly plumped up and stays supple until I wake up the next morning. Highly recommended for dehydrated skin!
Nivea Visage Aqua Sensation Anti-Shadow Eye Cream (£5.99)
Similar to the Moisturizing Gel-Cream, the texture of this eye cream is extremely light and it feels like a gel that gets absorbed into my skin within seconds. It also contains the same ingredients – cucumber and ginseng extract – to make shadows go away. I have been using this for over a month now and even though I do not see a prominent difference in my undereye circles, my eye area does feels refreshed and hydrated. I would highly recommend this for young skin.
Nivea Visage Young Wash Off Cleansing Gel (£4.25)
I use this after my Kanebo Cleansing Oil every night. It contains pure ocean minerals and gives off a tingling sensation when applied onto the skin. It is very gentle yet washes off any residue without overdrying my skin. My face just feels clean, refreshed and smooth after I use this. Thumbs up!
Nivea Visage Extra Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover (£3.25)
Don’t ask me why but I developed mild eczema on my left eyelid last winter (I think Ponds Bare and Repair Eye Makeup Remover might be the culprit for it) and all oil-based removers were irritating my skin so much I had to stop using them. I then started my hunt for a gentle eye makeup remover and when I read that this was one of the most effective yet gentle eye makeup removers out there, I took a chance and I am so glad that I did. This really is great for sensitive skin! It contains soothing Provitamin B5 to hydrate the eye area and never leaves behind any greasy residue. All I need to do is soak up two cotton pads with this, place one on each eye, hold it for 15 seconds then wipe and everything comes off. However, since it does not contain any oil and is “extra gentle”, it will not remove waterproof mascara completely – you would definitely need an oil-based remover for that.
