Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub Review

Hello Girlies! Here I am back with another review Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub Review. When it comes to skincare, most of us put emphasis on Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. What we tend to ignore is that scrubbing is also very important. Face wash cleanses our skin, but scrubbers remove dead skin cells and unclog our pores. As you might have known till now that scrubs are one of the most loved and used product in my daily beauty regimen. I am a dry skinned who loved using scrubs on daily basis. I have used quite a variety of scrubs from a number of brands.

Some have really impressed me whereas some have depressed me like anything. Now, when you are a dry skinned girl, you will end up hating scrubs which dries out your skin.

And finally my search landed me to this scrub from the house of Nivea. Take a look below at my Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub Review and see if it fared on my skin or not.

My experience with Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub

Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub comes in medium sized tube which weighs medium thus making it convenient to carry. It comes with a flip flop opening which makes the product quite easy to be dispensed with. With slight pressure the scrub comes out. The opening makes the scrub amount to be dispensed controllable. But when pressure is applied on tube scrub particles comes out making the opening messy. This makes it very inefficient for travelling.

The scrub comes in white colour with blue tiny granules in it. The tiny granules are not harsh on skin but even then they perform their task of scrubbing effectively. Texture wise the scrub is creamy but quite easily blend able. The texture of this scrub from Nivea is more like a sea salt. When the scrub comes in contact with water it lathers profusely leaving behind a clean face.

Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub effectively removes the dirt and blackheads from the face leaving the face clean and clear. The scrub when massaged on face feels quite tender and not at all harsh on skin. After a tiring day or even to awake your face in the morning this scrub is just perfect.

Other advantage with this scrub is that it does not deprive face of any moisture unlike other scrubs. This also maintains the pH balance of face thereby making the face neither drying nor stretching.

Even little quantity of this scrub lathers quite well thus eliminating the use of using too much product. So, this scrub will defiantly go a long way.

Overall,?Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub?fits in perfectly as my daily use gentle scrubber.

  1. looks so promising and the word Aqua.. i am totally sold..

  2. I haven’t tried this scrub but it sounds wonderful. Let’s see if I can look past the messy packaging

  3. I don’t wish to play spoilsport but cannot ignore a few things that deserve being told, Pallavi. Please be careful with its usage. It has a number of noxious chemicals such as- SLS, Parabens, Coal tar dye (labelled Cl) and perfume (labelled Parfum). A great many undisclosed chemicals are added under an evasive tag of ‘perfume’.

    I don’t wish to demotivate you or your write up. But as a word of caution, please be sparing with its quantity 🙂 I’ve been reading a bit about the I’ll effects of chemicals added into cosmetics (most of which haven’t been banned in India) so I thought of warning you beforehand 🙂

  4. I have never used Nivea Scrubs, but your review is tempting me to try this out 🙂

  5. I have used another variant of this and liked it as much as you did 😉
