I would like to say a big thank you to Diva Likes for my second set of beauty haul. It is always a great feeling to receive gifts, especially when it is a bag full of aromatic beauty products. The joy of unwrapping the generously cello-taped brown parcel to see what lies within, is absolutely inexplicable. I decided to review the product which catches my attention first among all the products. Voila! It was the fresh aqua blue colored tube of Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash that attracted me as soon as I managed to rip open the parcel. Moreover it has been ages since I changed my face wash. Therefore I decided to experiment with Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash first. Was this change of face wash worth it? Read on to know more about my experience with this product.

My Experience With Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash:

Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash is contained within an aqua blue colored transparent, plastic tube with a flip-top cap. I really liked the packaging because this shade of blue and the small picture of an ocean wave on the face of the label filled me with a sense of freshness. This gel-based face wash has a faint blue tint and its consistency is not very runny. Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash has the classic fragrance of the original Nivea cream with a refreshing touch of aqua. One thing about Nivea products that I really like is that their aroma is always subtle yet very energetic and refreshing.

A pea-sized amount is sufficient for good lather. However it will take some time to wash it off completely as its gel base texture gives a slippery sensation which doesn't come off easily. Nevertheless this face wash does live up to its claim of deeply cleansing the skin by effectively removing dirt and oiliness, thus leaving your face cool and refreshed. The lovely aroma of this face wash lingers for quite some time. But after patting dry, my face felt slightly tensed and craved for immediate moisturizing. I was also disappointed to see the presence of substances like paraben in the ingredients list as they are really not skin friendly elements. Other than these few points, I didn't find any major drawback in this product. Since I have been using Khadi Herbal Face Wash for almost 3-4 years, it was a nice experience trying out a different brand for a change. Its humble pricing makes it perfectly suitable for daily use.

Pros Of Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash:
  • Mild, revitalizing face wash
  • Travel-friendly and pleasant packaging
  • Removes dirt and oiliness leaving the face refreshed
  • Refreshing aroma that lingers for a while
  • Lives up to its claim of deep cleansing
  • Decently priced

Cons Of Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash:
  • Skin felt a little tensed and needed moisturizer after washing off the face wash
  • Slippery sensation of gel takes time to wash off
  • Contains chemicals like parabens

Final Note:

Nivea Aqua Effect Refreshing Face Wash is totally worth giving a try. It not only cleanses the skin efficiently but also leaves the face feeling cool and rejuvenated. It gives just the feeling that we all look for after a long, hectic day!
