Nivea's new Pure & Natural range

In this age of austerity and the recent VAT increase, I'm cutting back and making economies so that I can still afford a fashion fix (or two!). First to go are my more expensive lotions and potions. After all, the price tag doesn't necessarily equal effectiveness.

My thrifty skincare tip is Nivea's new Pure & Natural range. Put together natural ingredients and Nivea's expertise and the result is affordable face and body care products that are free from parabens, silicones, colourants and mineral oils – with a whopping 95% of ingredients from natural origins.

My new skincare regime comprises Nivea's Pure & Natural Anti-Wrinkle Day and Night Creams (below, £8.49 each). They help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. What's more, they've been proven to outperform the world's best-selling anti-wrinkle cream. Not bad for under a tenner each, eh?

Nivea's Pure & Natural Body Lotion (below, £3.57) and Hand Cream (above, £3.05) are equally purse-friendly. Both contain argan oil, a natural source of vitamin E, which softens and smoothes my skin brilliantly. The body lotion is especially good right now for tackling dryness, while the hand cream gives intense moisturisation.

Last but not least is my favourite product: Nivea's Pure & Natural Milk & Honey Lip Balm (above, £1.99). With milk and honey extract, organic shea butter and natural jojoba oil, it's super-hydrating – a miracle stick for my winter-chapped lips. Plus, it tastes yummy, too.

The Nivea Pure & Natural range also includes a Facial Moisturising Day Cream (£5.10), Facial Cleaner and Toner (£3.36 each) and Body Moisturiser (£3.57). It's available from 20th February at and selected stockists, with the anti-wrinkle creams available exclusively at Boots and Superb skincare on a shoestring? You'd better believe it.



  1. where is your lovely makeup bag from?!

  2. I have been searching - literally for years - for a body lotion that won't make my legs come up all red and itchy the minute I put it on after I've shaved as they are soooo sensitive. I never even thought about Nivea but started using their Nivea Soft cream for my hands and had it in my bag on a weekend away. I tried it on my legs and it works!!!!! Amazing! I might have to give these a go now :)

  3. thanks for sharing :)

  4. Sounds good! Although I could quite happily argue with you all day about 'bad' cosmetic ingredients and how you'd be very surprised at the things that are coming from naturals but that would be letting my day job get in the way of blogging :D x

  5. Hi,

    Thanks for your comments. Lovely to hear from you all.

    Oh, and NicolaCooke, the make-up bag is by Paul & Joe, from its Christmas collection.
