So summer is officially hitting hard in India and the journey to glowy youthful skin can be a pricey one! So today i will be reviewing the best drugstore lightweight affordable moisturizer I E-V-E-R used. Definitely this moisturizer is hands down my favorite moisturizer specially during summer season.I generally don’t like to change my skincare routine a lot but during summer my skin gets super oily and I always look for different oil control cleansers and moisturizers. So recently while I was visiting my nearest drugstores to buy certain skincare products I came across this little gem.
Description : Nivea Soft Light Moisturizer is a dermatologically-tested moisturizing cream that suits all skin types. It is enriched with Vitamin E and jojoba oil, which go deep into the skin and turn it into a fresh, soft, smooth and healthy-looking one. The light texture and fast-absorbing formula of the product make it highly effective and invigorating.
Ingredients : Aqua, Glycerin, Paraffinum Liquidum, Myristyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat. 3.6% v/v, Stearic Acid, Myristyl Myristate, Cera Microcristallina, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lanolin Alcohol (Eucerit), Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Dimethicone, Sodium Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum.
Price : Rs 230 for 200 ml, Rs 145 for 100 ml and Rs 35 for 25 ml.
My experience : When I used this the first day I did apply a lot of moisturizer only because I felt I needed more as it is really lightweight .And by the end of the day my skin was looking like an oily mess and I was quite disappointed with the product. But the next day I tried it again and applied only a tiny amount,and it gets instantly absorbed and gives the right amount of moisture without looking greasy. It kept my face hydrated all day long and also my makeup was intact for hours. It has a faint smell which instantly goes away after applying and does not irritates much. I like it more than my Neutrogena oil control moisturizer because it did break me out couple of times and also its not totally oil free whereas the Nivea moisturizer makes my skin so soft, totally lightweight, perfect for summers and most importantly it did not break me out even once.It has a creamy thick texture which is why only a tiny bit is enough to cover up the whole face. It can be also used as a night creme after cleansing and toning the face properly.
