Nivea Express Hydration Primer

Hello darlings 

Today i have for you my thoughts on Nivea's daily essentials primer. I've had this product for several months (in fact i mentioned it in my July Favourites here) But now i feel i've had enough time to really road test it as they say.




As always i'll start with the packaging, i love it, its cute and i like the fact its a glass tub so it feels expensive. The only problem is that its not the most travel friendly, but it is small so you could carry it in your handbag if your careful not to drop/through your hand bag around! It has a nice smell, a nice texture and goes on the skin smoothly. I found it did help my makeup stay on but not all day unfortunately but longer than if didn’t use this and a lot longer than other primers i've tried. I love the fact its a moisturizer as well so its light on the skin and doesn't have that silicon feel. Its god value for money as its relatively cheap (although i hate that word) at £4.99 and a little goes a long way!
My main problem with it was it would be better if it had a pump or was in a tube , I hate just sticking my fingers into it as it causes a mess. But oh well i still really like it. It comes in both normal/dry skin and normal/combination skin which is great, 

You can buy it here 

I'd love to know have you tried this product?

  6. Oooh something else to add to my wishlist! I'm a huge fan of Nivea lip balms; this is bound live up to my expectations as well. (And I notice that you're a relatively new blogger; if you're ever looking for a designer, I'm your girl!) xx
