Nivea Q10 Plus Range :)

Hello Beauties I hope you are all well :) 
Just to warn you before you start reading ...... Go grab yourself a cuppa because this might be a long but informative read :)  Especially if you like Nivea and also interested in their new range :)  ;)  I promise it wont be long winded :) 
As you may know Nivea products has always been a long time favourite of mine and no matter what other skincare ranges I try and finish I always seem to go back to my all time favourite :)  I have been using Nivea for as long as I can remember and never once have I been disappointed :)  
I was even more excited to try this new range out because as much as I hate to admit it my skin is not getting any younger and to be honest I want to keep my skin looking young for as long as I can (Dont we all )  
This skincare range is not only for anyone over the age of 30, 40 etc this is for anyone who wants to prevent wrinkles forming and all of that stuff :) :)  In my opinion you are never too young to start taking really good care of your skin and to aim to fight those lines that lately turn into deep wrinkles :) 
I do have to admit it myself I have fines lines now (or as I call them laughing lines) and I will be dammed if I am going to get more anytime soon lol :)  or so I hope :) 
Of course preventing anymore lines does include a healthy lifestyle aswell as skincare.  So i have become better in making sure my healthy is improved simply by what I take into my body and of course at least having a half hour walk a day etc but taking care of my skin is another thing I have been more cautious about :)  
No obviously there is no way of ridding wrinkles and fine lines without going the surgical way but Nivea have done their research and created a range in which Evens out lines and smooths out wrinkles so that they look less visible.  

So How is Coenzyme Q10 going to help us?
Well Q10 is a natural Coenzyme present in all cells of the body.  As the outermost layer, the skin has a constant need for Q10 to work as an antioxident to battle against everyday harms that causes our skin to age aka Sun rays, toxins in the air etc.  As we get older the natural Q10 that is in our skin begins to lessen leaving that natural defence to lessen which causes every day harms to take effect on our skin.  This is why its so important for us to replace the loss of Q10 to keep that strong defence up :)  
This is why I am super excited about this range and have been loving using these products so much lately :) :)  So without further ado let be begin with one of the most interesting products of this bunch :)  The most effective one should I say :) 


Why this is more effective?  
NIVEA Q10plus Anti-wrinkle Serum Pearls deliver you the highest dosage of skin’s own coenzyme Q10 within the Q10plus Anti-wrinkle range. Its highly powerful formula enriched with Hyaluronic Acid proves its pure anti-wrinkle efficacy by not only reducing the appearance of wrinkles visibly but also helping to decelerate the formation of new ones. With regular use, they soften skin surface noticeably and reignite its smooth and younger looking complexion.
The beautiful golden pearls are infused in an intensely moisturising hydro gel which also contains Q10 
Another ingredient in this Serum is Hyaluronic Acid which is said to be an outstanding anti-wrinkle powder because it acts as a filler, plumper and smooths out the appearance of deep lines :) 

I found this at first very unusual and didnt really read the instructions :)   I really like the idea of applying a serum to my face but found serums to be a little OTT price wise until I got this :)  This will only set you back €14.99 for 40mls which is an amazing price for for the amount you are getting.  You only need the smallest amount to do your entire face :)  
Finally I own a serum which is going to be super effective to my skin and not cost me an arm and a leg.  :) 
This serum comes with a pump which dispenses just the right amount of product to apply to the face.  Now when I first pumped this little beauty I got a shock to be honest as I was expecting just this simple cream with a mixture of the golden pearls.  What I did get was a blog of yellow creamy substance :) 
To be honest it sort of reminded me of scambled eggs (lol I know im crazy)  and when blending it out on my hand it looked like that even more :)  look for yourself 

Let me reassure you that once this is rubbed into the skin it de solves and leaves you with the most amazing glowing skin :)  You are best applying this to fresh cleansed face to get the real benefits from this amazing stuff.   Once applied the serum soaks right into your skin straight away :)  

I apply this before applying my makeup everyday and of course every night after washing my face and before my moisturiser.  I love how refreshing my skin looks and feels and this has definately become a favourite of mine.  I love how it doesnt leave my skin looking oily and through out the day I do not notice any oilys coming through my makeup :)  Its a big thumbs up for me for sure :)  I have large pores and usually I notice my large pores through out the day but when having this serum on my face I dont notice it anymore :)  As for proving it evens works on wrinkles well I cant really prove that as im lucky I have none yet but I have notices that some of my fine lines are less visible which is a good start :)  I can safely say the more I use this the more I will see the difference :) 

Next up is Moisturisers :)  


Tired skin is a down fall I have always had.  My skin is lifeless without anything on it to be honest.  I havent got natural flushed cheeks and I have no natural glow :(  I envy people who do have that natural glowing flushed look as they can get away with wearing no makeup.  Of course been a mum of 5 and a blogger and running errands all the time can takes it toll on my skin but I do like to have my makeup free days and have that refreshed looking skin walking out the door too :)  Any mum out there can vouch for me here when I say there are days we just looking in the mirror and basically see this tired older looking faces that look like the life has bee sucked out of their faces just for been tired and we feel like we need to put a bag over our faces before walking out the door.  Well not anymore I may be a full time mum but I will me dammed if I am going to look 20 years older than I am !!!!! Dam Straight!!!!! 
So this is why I decided to opt for this moisturiser. 
Nivea states:  
Nivea Q10  plus Anti-Wrinkle Energising Day Cream visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and awakens your skin for a fresh and radiant look.  The moisturizing formula with natural Goji Berry – a fruit rich of vitamins – reactivates skin‘s power to recover from fatigue and stress. Besides, the formula contains skin‘s own Coenzyme Q10 and visibly reduces lines and signs of ageing.
Awww I just love how Nivea always has a protective cover over their creams to keep the creams in perfect condition.  You get this pot which contains 40mls of product for only €11.80 and This pot is full to the top :) :) 
The cream is very light weight and very easy to spread out on the face.  After I wash my face I find applying this after the serum very very refreshing :)  Not only that this cream instantly soaks into my skin leaving me with very soft and youthful looking skin.  My face feels like babys skin after you apply lotion to their skin.  Lately I have bee suffering with very dry skin around my nose area which affects me alot especially when wearing foundation as it makes my foundation look cakey around my nose and tends to build up.  Since starting to use this cream its not dry anymore :) :)  My skin feels moisturised all day long.  i have also got my no makeup days and am able to walk out the door with fresh glowing looking not so tired looking skin :)  Now all im missing is the natural flush on my cheeks which unfortunately no cream can fix lol :)  The scent of this moisturiser is amazing and basically your typical Nivea scent in which my kiddies adore smelling off my face :)  My twins are forever kissing my cheeks and giving them an odd sniff with a sigh :)  Which of course make me smile every time :)  Another thumbs up for me :) :)  I can finally see a refreshed younger looking complection staring back at me when I look in the mirror :)  ( & thats without surgery or makeup)  Ok it doesnt work that much of a miracle and doesnt make a huge difference to my skin but it surely doesnt make my skin look fresh moisturised alive and not dull and thats all we need to look good ;) 

Nivea Q10 anti-wrinkle Q10 Plus night cream 
Now of course we need to keep our skin moisturised at night because to be realistic our skin goes through alot through out the day and when we can finally take our makeup off go for our shower and just into our pj our skin needs moisture through out the night.  Especially if you suffer with dry or sensitive skin.  
Nivea state:  
Nivea Q10 plus anti-wrinkle Night Cream is part of our proven Anti-Wrinkle Care System. At night, skin is most receptive to moisture intake and the intensely moisturising night cream:

1. Supports your natural Q10 level at night, fights the appearance of wrinkles and visibly smoothes your skin.
2. Replenishes skin at night and supports its ability to regenerate.
What Nivea didnt mention is that Creatine which is one of the main ingredients in this night cream also helps to tighten our skin through out the night and helps us fight against ageing :)  The Fact that Creatine is also proven to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is perfectly ok to me :) :)  

Like the day cream this is also 40mls of product full to the top for only €11.80 :)  The thing is with this cream you are going to use even less because the consistency of this cream is thicker than the day cream.  

The scent of course is exactly the same as the day cream just heavenly :) :)  I feel that this cream is very cooling when first applied to the face which is exactly what we need at night :)  Even though this cream is thicker than the day cream it doesnt feel it once applied and only takes a few seconds to completely soak into the skin.  I was a little worried about that because most night creams I have tried didnt soak in as quick and left me with a damp feeling on my skin even hours after applying to my skin but this cream soaked right in.  I was mistaken in worrying because once the cream is soaked in your skin feels super moisturised and even when you wake in the morning you feel like you have just applied the cream which is amazing :)  In the morning my skin feels smooth soft and so refreshed.  

As for anti-wrinkles well I am sure by the time I finish the pot I will see a little difference but to be honest I dont care about that part all I care is that all this range is doing for my skin is preventing newer lines appearing on my face and helping me look more bright eyed and bushy tailed :)  With both these creams and the serum working together I have every confidence that they are doing their job for my skin and helping me avoid getting more fine lines and keeping those wrinkles away for another while.  What I am super please with is that since using these products I havent had any dry spots around my nose and my skin looks more alive and fresh :) 
But of course we cant forget this last product which is something I havent been strict on myself about before I started using this tut tut to me I know :) 


I really cant believe I have not been strict on myself enough about using eye creams before now but I havent been using them.   To be honest the skin under my eyes has been very dry lately and notice that sometimes using different concealers makes my under eyes look cakey throughout the day making them look old.  
Since using this eye cream I havent experiencing any dryness at all.  
Nivea state:  

Nivea Q10 plus anti-wrinkle Eye Cream is part of our proven Anti-Wrinkle Care System. The formula with UVA/ UVB filters helps support the skin’s defence. The light perfume-free, quickly-absorbed eye cream:

1. Supports your natural Q10, fights the appearance of wrinkles and visibly smoothes your skin
2. Helps support skin’s defence through UVA + UVB protection
3. Minimises dark under-eye circles RESULT: Smoother, younger-looking skin and minimised dark under-eye circles.

Again like the night cream this eye cream contains Creatine ;) 

This tube is 15mls and costs €11.79 but really this tube is going to last a long time as you only need a pea sized amount to do both eyes.  The tube has a very skinny nozzle at the end which helps you dispense just the right amount of product onto your fingers :)  

This is so so pleased to use on the eyes and not once has it sung me which is what we all fear.  Of course you have to be careful applying the cream and not to let it get into your eyes.  It feels like I am spreading water to my under eye area instead of a cream, that's how light it feels.  My under eye instantly looks moisturised and alot brighter.  I like to apply this twice a day.  In the morning and last thing at night.  It takes a while for this cream to soak in but once its soaked in your under eye area feels moisturised all day and night :) 

 As far as minimising dark circles I can safely say it hasnt done that for me yet as I suffer with dark circles from the inner corner to more or less the outer corner of my eyes and to me there is no difference but I  am only using this for about a month now so it could happen the more I use it :) and I will surely update you on that :)  One thing I am glad about is that I am finally into a routine of using eye creams twice a day now which to be honest everyone should do too once they hit their mid 20's onwards as we all dread those crows feet and wrinkles and what better way to prevent them than investing in a good eye cream ;) 

Well finally I have got to the end of my review and over all I am so so happy with this range.  I feel really great that I have a skincare that is not only protecting my face but also giving me the moisture I need :)  I am also crazy about the Serum and Highly recommend it :)  Its amazing :)  For the price you are paying (which is super affordable in my eyes) you are getting amazing quality skincare :) 

Have you tried this new Q10 Plus range yet.  I am so tempted to go out there and get the rest of the range to try out :)  To see what else is available check out Niveas Website :) 

Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This sounds really interesting. I've never really been a fan of Nivea, but it would be good to give this a go.


Laura Ferry said...

So interested to read about these products as I've just been using a serum with coq10 in and it was really good at hydrating my skin xxx

Sophia Meola; ❤ said...

I really enjoy using Nivea skincare products - this range sounds great! The serum does look like it has a funny consistency but if it does the trick on my skin I wouldn't really mind - the little balls in the bottle look quite fun!
