AD – This post contains gifted contain as part of an ongoing brand relationship.
My wonderful Nivea family really made my day this Mother’s Day by gifting my mum a whole load of pampering treats, just for her. It was SO lovely of them to include her in our relationship and I think it was just the perfect little treat that we both definitely needed during these times as well.
I thought I’d share the few products that were gifted as well, in case you were after any skincare inspiration right now or you wanted to treat your mum to some goodies.
I do work with Nivea so I am definitely biased, but they do such lovely skincare at such affordable prices. I have never known their products to be too harsh either, so if you or your mum have sensitive skin then I really recommend this brand!
First up, we have the Nivea 3in1 Q10 Anti-Age Hand Cream. This has Q10 in it (obviously…) and also UV filters, it smooths skin, prevents age spots and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It also evens your skin tone and promotes 24H hydration. After all our hand washing recently, I think this is something that we’ll both be obsessed with and has definitely come at the right time!
Next, we have a product that really caught my interest. It’s their Nivea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Serum Pearls. I have never seen a product like this before! This anti-aging cream apparently supercharges skin by visibly reducing fine lines & the first signs of wrinkles, it contains Coenzyme Q10 and has a smooth gel-like consistency, you only need a small amount of this (like any serum, a little goes a long way) and is best used at night, before you sleep.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant and energizer that helps recharge and rejuvenate your skin, protects it from damage and also slows the aging process. This serum also contains Hyaluronic Acid (which is SO good for your skin). I’ve given this product a sneaky try and it feels really luxurious and hydrating. It also has a really nice scent to it as well, it actually smells like the classic Nivea scent, which I love!
Lastly, she very kindly sent two of their bestsellers, their moisturising creams! She was sent both the Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream and also their Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream. These two go together hand in hand. As you get older, the first thing that is going to show the age of your skin is how much hydration you (and your skin) do (or don’t!) have. The best thing you can do for yourself is to keep active, hydrated and follow a balanced diet, these are all things which are going to help you in the long run.
However, using a moisturising cream like either of these will really aid your skin. The Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream alone visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and contains Q10 in it which works in harmony with your skin and fights the aging process. It also contains SPF which is essential for day to day life and also prevents UVA/UVB rays (which cause premature aging).
The Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream works while you sleep, when the skin is most receptive, therefore it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and leaves skin looking younger. Both are best used together to bring balance to your skin and promote hydration.
These are definitely products I’ve thought about bringing into my own skincare routine too as “Prevention Is Better Than Cure”. There’s also certainly no age limit when it comes to looking after your skin either.
I have to say the biggest thank you to Nivea for sending over so many lovely, special products just for my mum. She was really surprised and also over the moon and it was so nice of them to treat her. It definitely made our day that bit more special.
How have you been spending your Mother’s Day?
