Nivea Mattifying Day Care Mosturiser

While I really should be doing school work, I thought I would take a few minutes to share my newest skin care love with you all. If you don't already know, I was been blessed with very oily skin... So when a product claims to be mattifying, I scoop it up and pray that it works.

For the past week, I have been trying out Nivea's Aqua Effect Mattifying Day Care Moisturiser! While I was home for Thanksgiving, I saw a commercial for this and I decided that I wanted to give it a shot. I picked it up at Shopper's Drug Mart for around $9.00 (Canadian).



The Aqua Effect Mattifying Day Care is described as an oil-free moisturiser for the daytime that moisturises the skin and also controls shine. The package says that it is suitable for combination to oily skin types. The bottle contains 1.7 fluid ounces, and considering you only need to use a pea sized amount each time, I think that it's an excellent deal.

I will warn you that it does have a fairly strong fragrance to it, but luckily, that doesn't bother me at all! It's not greasy, absorbs quickly into my skin, and it works great under foundation! During my "no-makeup" days (I have been having alot of these days recently, thanks to midterms..) it keeps my shine at bay! I am very happy with this purchase.


I have to say that I have noticed a slight change in how oily my face gets on a daily basis! Typically, by mid afternoon I am usually blotting and repowdering to get rid of the extra oil and shine, but with this moisturiser my makeup has lasted quite a bit longer! I can't wait to see if this helps to fend off shine during the hot and humid months, but we will have to wait and see!
