This particular idea of face wash, scrub and pack in one is quite fascinating, don’t you feel? Well, I thought let’s give it a try, and I did. So, today I will review Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup for you ladies.
I am using this product approximately for over a month now, I will now share my experience with you. This cleanser comes in a fat tube. It has a flip cap, which is highly preferable. The smell of the product is very strong, very chemical type at the same time weird also.
The face wash or scrub or pack (don’t know, what I am supposed to call it exactly) is a thick white paste, full of tiny blue granules. I used to get confused at the beginning about how to use it. The direction says to use it as scrub first then as pack; but I don’t find it useful. So, I keep it for 3-4 minutes as pack, then I scrub and rinse. After washing my face it gives a refreshing feeling which I like about this product.
The blue granules are quite helpful as scrub material, but as a pack I don’t find it good enough. The after effect of this product is not quite amusing, it makes skin supple (like all scrubs do), and also controls oil for sometime only but other than that it does nothing for my skin (I have normal skin with T-zone oily). Though it claims, but actually does not remove spots at all.
It cleans my face pretty well; other than that I did not notice any visible effect on my skin. Overall, I can use it (until it’s over) as a scrub (though not daily) when I needed; but not as a pack because I have better face packs like Himalaya Fairness Face Pack (my Holy Grail) to treat my skin. I do not like this product because I did not see any visible effects (like oil-control, spot remover, works as a pack) on my skin as it claims.
- Cleans face.
- Granules are good for scrubbing.
- Controls oil (for some time only).
- Fair amount.
- Gives a fresh feeling.
- Tube packaging with flip cap is good.
- Full of chemicals (and claims it is mild formula!).
- Not really works as pack.
- Does not reduce spots.
- Does not hold the oil-control effect more than 1 or 2 hours.
- Contains Paraben.
- Smells weird like toothpaste.
Do I Recommend?:
No . If you must need a scrub, there are lot better scrubs available.
Would I repurchase?:
I don’t think so.
