NEW Q10plus Skin Care Review*

Hello everyone!
Today's post is a review from Nivea.  I've been using these Nivea Q10 as my daily skincare routine for the past few months and I am loving them. Skincare is so important for all ages and it is never too early to start preventing those wrinkles from appearing! So lets get onto the review!

How it works

The luminescent golden pearls are packed with Q10 and suspended in an intensely moisturising, clear hydro gel which contains three of skin’s own active ingredients – Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid and Creatine. When the special pump dispenser is depressed, the Q10 enriched pearls dissolve and blend with the hydro gel. This freshly activates the serum to revitalise the skin, visibly smooth the appearance of wrinkles and achieve a younger looking complexion.

Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the skin but levels decrease with age. Q10 is vital for the skin cells’ energy production and to help protect against oxidative damage. Decreasing levels of Q10 mean that the skin cells have less protection which, in turn, contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls has been proven to be NIVEA’s most effective product yet in replenishing the Q10 level that skin has naturally lost.

Hyaluronic Acid has outstanding anti-wrinkle power - able to absorb up to a thousand times its own weight in water – and acting as a filler, plumping and smoothing out the appearance of deep lines.

Creatine works alongside Q10 in the skin and acts as another energy booster to support the skin’s own regeneration process. Formed naturally in the skin (from amino acids), it plays a critical role in the body’s energy metabolism to help boost protection, performance and activity of skin cells, accumulating energy and releasing it, right when and where it’s needed. 


How to use

New NIVEA Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls is an intense care product which is most effective when applied directly onto cleansed skin, allowing the formulation to penetrate deep into the skin cells. It has a light texture which is easily absorbed and leaves the skin feeling noticeably smoother. Massage the serum to activate the pearl technology and apply gently to the face, neck or décolletage - follow with a NIVEA Q10 day cream or night cream. It can also be used as a base before applying make-up. Use twice daily for at least two weeks for best results: younger and smoother looking skin with visibly reduced wrinkles.

Priced at just RRP €14.99 for 40ml, the new NIVEA Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls offers all the benefit of NIVEA’s superior anti-wrinkle power but without the premium price; one more thing to feel happy about. The NIVEA Q10 Plus existing range has been renovated with attractive new packaging.

This is the first time that I've tried a product like this before. The serum comes out the pump container with lumpy pearls and when you dispense it looks like a thick yellow mousse which then liquifies into a serum when it comes in to the contact with the skin. One pump is enough to cover the face, little goes a long way so it will last for a long time.

After several months of using the serum I noticed that fine lines seemed to be more refined and less visible. I have used the serum together with the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Daycream and Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Nightcream, and they seem to work so well together. Overall I am very impressed with the Nivea Q10 Anti Wrinkle range. I noticed a huge difference in my skin and the products are very affordable. I will be repurchasing these products in the future.
