Brightening Skin Care for Normal to Oily Skin: Nivea Visage Sparkling White

What is it? Nivea Visage Sparkling White series that consists Whitening Day Care Oil Control moisturizer, Whitening Foam and Whitening Scrub

The Claims: Nivea Visage Sparkling White promises to make the skin look brighter, glowing and also moisturized in a healthy and safe way. It means that it won’t give you instant result like other whitening products claim to brighten the skin in several days.

The Whitening Scrub works by exfoliating dead skin cells gently to refine the skin. Whitening Foam acts to remove all dirt and retain its moisture. Whitening Day Care protects the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, limits excessive oil production of the skin and makes it brighter.

Who is it for? People who want brighter complexion. Especially those with normal to oily skin, because the moisturizer limits excessive oil production.

The Star Ingredients: White Pure Actives that contains natural ingredients including licorice to stimulate the decreasing level of melanin and pigmentation, White Crystalites, which is a natural white pigment, to make skin look bright and glowing.

All the products in Nivea Visage Sparkling White are packed in a tube with flip top cap. With this flip top, we won’t lose the cap unlike other skincare products that have separated ones. NIVEA Visage Sparking White Day Care Oil Control moisturizer comes in two sizes, 30 ml and 50 ml. While the Whitening Scrub and Whitening Foam are available in 50 ml and 100 ml.

Formula and The Verdict:

Nivea Visage Sparkling White Whitening Day Care Oil Control moisturizer– It is a cream with light texture that is absorbed into the skin quite fast. The cream feels fresh and it doesn’t make my skin feel tight even though I have dry skin.

Nivea Visage Sparkling White Whitening Foam – A small amount of Whitening Foam creates a lot of foam and it cleanses my face from all the dirt quite well. Anyway, it feels a bit drying and tightening to my skin although the product doesn’t state that Whitening Foam’s formula controls oil production.

Nivea Visage Sparkling White Whitening Scrub – It is a facial foam that contains very soft scrub that doesn’t hurt my skin at all. However, it feels that the product cleanses my face deeply so my face looks slightly brighter after washing. But I didn’t see that quick brightening effect anymore after several times of using this scrub. So let’s just expect its main function as facial scrub or deep cleanser.

After about a month wearing this skincare range, I don’t see the complexion of my face getting brighter. But wait, it doesn’t mean Nivea Visage Sparkling White products don’t work as well as they claim.

During last end of year holiday, I got exposed to sun a lot. I went to beach and went swimming too. I used enough sunblock when I was exposed to sun, but my skin still got a little bit darker than before. I assume that my skin would be a lot darker if I hadn’t used Nivea Sparkling White. There must be many factors that affect our skin to turn brighter or darker so I cannot expect significant result while I’m exposed to sun a lot.

How much? This product range is priced between Rp 8,900 – Rp 30,800.

What can be improved: Since the Whitening Day Cream doesn’t state the level of UV protection it gives, it will be better if it is stated clearly. Also, I wish if Nivea Visage Sparkling White would tone down its fragrance, especially the fragrance on its Whitening Day Care Oil Control moisturizer that has different yet the strongest aroma among other products within this range. Besides, it will also be nice if this range had night cream to make it more complete.
