My Holy Grail Beauty Products



Hey Beauts,

If you've seen my recent YouTube video on my 'simple makeup tutorial' you would have heard me briefly mention my love for the 'Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes'. I thought I would expand on this love my dedicating a whole post to it (haha!)

From a young age, I have had very sensitive skin which resulted in me trying so many skin products out there in the hope that I finally find one that works for me. The prices have ranged from the ridiculously expensive to the high street brands but none of them have seemed to work. It's either they totally dry out my skin, tightening my 'T Zone', or they are too greasy for me causing a lof of rashes and pimples.

I cannot quite remember how I stumbled upon the Nivea wipes but I remember using the 'Simple' range and then noticing the Nivea ones were on offer. I have been using the wipes alongside my Garnier 'Pure Active' Charcoal facial scrub for about 6 months now and I have noticed a HUGE difference to my skin. The wipes I use are for 'Dry & Sensitive Skin', alcohol free and contain Natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ. My skin has been so much smoother, hydrated and full of life. I rarely get spots and no longer get the tight/uncomfortable feeling to my T-zone.

I hardly use foundation because the wipes alone make my skin look so healthy and beautiful. Even when I do apply coverage, I know my skin is protected underneath. There have shamefully been instances where after a crazy night out, I have been lazy and just used the wipes alone without properly washing my face and to my surprise my skin has still looked really fresh and healthy in the morning. 

I carry them everywhere I go and if anyone were to ask what my number one beauty product was, it would be the Nivea Daily Essentials wipe without a doubt. So if like me, you have attention seeking skin, try this product, you never know..... It could become your bible product too! :)

N.B- throughout the years I have learnt that it is not the quantity of products you use on your skin that matters, it is finding the one(s) that really works for you. Trying and testing has not been a bad thing but I have found only using two products (The Garnier scrub and the cleansing wipes) has worked better for me than using about 6 different ones at the same time. 

Thanks for Reading
