Beauty | Fuss free skincare with Nivea

I'm a firm believer that less is more when it comes to skincare. I've never been the type of person to put a million and one products on my face, partly down to laziness, but mostly through not wanting to clog my pores with excess and unnecessary beauty products.
I've tried various products over my umpteen years and have found some firm favourites along the way but a brand I always come back to & a brand I believe is quite underrated in the blogosphere is Nivea.
To begin cleansing I like to go in with a product that's going to get rid of the vast amount of makeup in the shortest amount of time. Go hard or go home right? The Nivea Exfoliating Scrub is super gentle but super effective at getting rid of makeup and any dead skin cells. It's creamy, smells delicious and leaves my skin feeling incredible.

As a second cleanse and to get rid of any excess makeup I like to use the Nivea Double Eye Makeup Remover. I pop the liquid oil cleanser on a cotton pad and swish it across my eyes to remove left over or waterproof mascara before giving a second swoosh to the rest of my face. I love the half oil, half liquid formula to this, it feels really lovely and luxurious to the skin & I'm almost positive it a slight shimmer to it, which is always a bonus!
An iconic and instantly recognisable product in my collection is the Nivea Creme, a super thick, luxurious moisturiser which I couldn't be without right now, especially as we reach the colder months. It's very similar to Soap & Glorys' Righteous Butter in terms of texture and how it feels on the skin, the only difference being it takes a little longer to sink into the skin, but its so worth it because you can feel all the oils working their magic. I can't imagine this being particularly great if you have oily skin, but because mine is quite normal to dry it works brilliantly for me. My skin just drinks it all up!

These three products, as simple as they are, have worked wonders for my skin... And the fact that Nivea is a bargain brand is a total bonus!

Have you tried any of these Nivea products before? What are your go to skincare products?
