Clean face but disappointed

It was completely different to what I was expecting. I was expecting an exfoliating scrub but it was just normal face wash with balls in it. I really didnt like it

NIVEA Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub for Normal & Combination Skin

I am not sure if I would repurchase this product or not.

I like that the beads do not disappear as you are working the product over your skin, but they are few and far in between.

It gives a very mild exfoliation and it leaves a slight film on the skin. However, after you towel dry, this residue disappears.

It does leave the skin feeling soft, but not smooth. It also does not remove makeup. I always double up with an exfoliater to ensure that I remove all traces of makeup, but this product does not do that for me.

I guess it will work okay in my morning routine, because it is so gentle and I don't really need anything heavy duty, but I generally don't exfoliate in the am.

I don't know - maybe I should work my way through the tube and then see how I end up feeling about it...

Great scrub

I take exfoliating very seriously, and have used my fair share of exfoliants but one of the best I've used thus far is this one. I love that the beads are of a good size so they actually serve their purpose of getting rid of dead skin cells perfectly. I've used exfoliants before with beads so tiny and soft that it seemed they were there for just decorative purposes and nothing else.

I love how smooth and refreshed this scrub leaves my skin and that it doesn't irritate it dry out my skin at all .

Definitely a keeper!

NIVEA Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub for Normal & Combination Skin

This product was meant as a gently daily scrub to remove impurities while making you skin feel refreshed.... Well I used it for about a week and slogged it through to use it for a month. It has a convenient packaging where you can squeeze out the perfect amount.

The Pro's
Smells amazing and it does not dry out the skin so no tightness or dry feeling after you use this product
It a gelly substance which goes on smoothly except for the scrubbing beads but the gel by itself just leaves the skin super soft and supple which I LOVE!!

The Con
the scrubbing BEADS for me is way too big, if the beads were smaller i could use it daily but i have to use this product every other day or so since the beads are quiet big and will leave the skin feeling sensitive no matter how soft you massage, which was my only pet peeve.

overall I did enjoy the product except for the beads, I personally would not use it again since there are other scrubs far better and will give me the same results with a cheaper price tag. I am a Nivea fan but with this scrub i found i did not like it at all only because of those massive beads.

I say it goes on preference, if you like the more smaller tinier beads or if you like the more granular one which this product has.

Nivea Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub for Normal & Combination Skin

I love exfoliating my skin twice a week and have tried quite a few brands in my time. So I think it’s fair to say I’m somewhat of an expert on exfoliators. Personally I prefer granular exfoliators, that really make it feel as though I’m giving my skin a good scrub. I don’t, however, want my skin to feel dried out or squeaky clean after use. The Nivea Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub ticks all the right boxes for me. It smells fresh, exfoliates beautifully and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I love it so much I have to hold myself back from exfoliating every day!
