REVIEW | NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIALS GENTLE EXFOLIATING FACIAL SCRUB


Finding great skincare products for little money is the entire purpose of my existence I feel like. The Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Exfoliating Scrub (£4) was a pure accidental discovery as it was sitting pretty on my bathroom shelf back home when I went to visit last week. It is a glorious product, for so many reasons. Firstly, as always with skincare reviews my skin type is oily/combination which means I do have dry areas on my face at times. Recently, due to stress and poor diet and general life habits my skin has been particularly blemish-prone, rough and dull. My typical skin care products have been ineffective, which is a huge disappointment as I do have some pricey items in my routine. 


This scrub, and I wouldn't even call it a scrub, has been a breath of fresh air for my skin. It is actually like a gel with suspended beads in it and it has the loveliest clean but soft scent. Like expensive laundry detergent making it a really pleasant product to use. I wouldn't describe this as abrasive or gritty, rather it is unbelievably gentle but the texture of the beads affords a light exfoliation which my skin craves morning and night. I have found using this takes care of makeup and residue and dirt and leaves my face feeling cleaner than ever. I do a few extra steps to ensure my face is properly clean and makeup-free and finish with oodles of moisturiser to try and provide my picky skin with the TLC it seems to be aching for at the moment. I truly can't recommend this product enough, it is exquisite and I imagine suitable for all skin types. I have fallen in love with it. I recently picked up the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser (£6) and Naturally Radiant Overnight Peel (£6), so stay tuned for those reviews. I will not be doing an October Favourites post because I haven't been purchasing or using anything new at all. I am going to hopefully be a little less strict this month and try out products I have been dying to buy, all recommendations are welcome. I hope you had an amazing October. Thank you so much for reading, have a lovely week. Take care. 

What is your favourite budget skincare item?

  5. Sounds like a good one! To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of products with beads in it, but I'm willing to give this one a go!

  7. Do you know what are the beads made of? Is it microbeads?

    1. I'm looking into it but I think it's microcellulose and Nivea has been considered safe to use by a lot of reputable sources, but I can't be sure. I know they are not micro plastics xx
