As women, I’ve noted through conversations that our biggest concerns when it comes to our skin is how tired it looks, fine lines and wrinkles. Personally, my biggest worry in addition to the previously mentioned concerns is whether or not my skin will co-operate the next morning, and the uncertainty always has me on edge. What if I have a big meeting, a shoot or casting first thing in the morning? I needed to find a product which would guarantee my skin wouldn’t look dull, but instead,  full of life. Over the years I have also been hearing a lot more chat around the importance of using a night cream, in addition to using a day cream. That is why I thought I’d try out the new NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy series.

Why NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy face care?

The NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy skin care range is said to be highly effective. For the very first time, it combines powerful antioxidants, Co-enzyme Q10 and pure Vitamin C, to give tired, dull skin a natural boost of energy and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The powerful and proven formula with Co-Enzyme Q10 (Q10) and Vitamin C includes a Skin Sleep Cream and Day Care SPF 15. 

The Skin Sleep Cream is proven to allow skin cells to take up 50% more oxygen* overnight which is the time when your skin needs optimum support. Environmental damage and ageing contribute to your skin cells being starved of oxygen which they so vitally need in order to function at their best. Boosting oxygen supply with NIVEA’s Skin Sleep Cream helps skin look fresh and energised.

My personal experience:

I have been using the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 in the morning and the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream in the evenings as I prepare to get some shut eye. It’s no surprise that I’m impressed with these products because NIVEA products have never let me down.

I haven’t solely left all the work to the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy face care. I also have a  face care routine I follow which involves cleansing, exfoliating, toning and THEN moisturising for maximum effect of the face care products. And I drink lot’s of water.

My days are quite unpredictable. One day I could be extremely busy and the other I could be having a calm day at home. Regardless of what’s going on, I still have to ensure my skin is well moisturised throughout the day. The citrus scented NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 is applied in the mornings and what I love about it is that it’s light and fast absorbing. It contains highly effective anti-oxidants Q10 and Vitamin C, and with pure Vitamin C our skin gets the ‘pick-me-up’ it needs. Vitamin C is also the bestie you need for your skin as it fights against free radicals which are one of the main causes of skin ageing. Then Q10 is your skin’s energy-provider which boosts collagen synthesis and cell regeneration. I always stress the importance of having an SPF in your hand, face and body creams, so that box they’ve also ticked with the SPF 15 day care!

When it comes to night time anyone who knows me well will tell you how much I absolutely love my beauty sleep. With that being said, It goes without mention how thrilled I am that the new NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream does all the work while I’m in la-la land. Before I used this Sleep Cream there were times I’d wake up with my face feeling so beat, as if I had been in a boxing match while I was fast asleep! I don’t know what that was all about, and my face just felt heavy, sluggish and looked tired! It’s important to use a night cream because it is during our sleep that our skin absorbs moisture best and damaged skin is said to repair up to eight times faster than it does during the day. Of late, I have been waking up to reduced fine lines and somewhat of a recharged/energised feeling, with renewed, radiant skin – no matter what. I’ve said bye-bye to tired looking skin too. #NIVEASA #Sponsored

    My skin needs a natural boost of energy as I have the most driest skin as I have eczema, most mornings I need to put on sunscreen before putting some moisturizer which takes quiet some time to absorb and leave me looking grey and darker. So this the Nivea Q10 plus C Anti Wrinkle + Energy Daycare SPF 15 will give me the effortless natural boost.

  4. I try to keep my face looking happy and energised, but sometimes a lack of sleep, a stressful job, and sitting in Jozi traffic can wipe that smile off my face and I need a little extra boost – winning this prize will make give my face and my life a big boost of energy! I love Nivea for it’s simplicity and for the fact that it works! The face that they’ve basically now made sleep-in-a-jar will definitely have me feeling and looking refreshed and energised, making the skin of my dreams a reality!

  5. J.Cole says something to the effect of “the very thing you need is the one you’ve been sleeping on;” I’m detoxing everything – the result of length hospital stays and a cocktail of medication – my body and subsequently my skin, needs a break. x,

  6. The first thing I do every morning when I get up is splash cold water 10 x to help my skin wake up before I take a shower. I’ve come to realise that it works wonders. Gets the blood circulation on my face up to speed. It’s really a great way to get the skin to wake up… oh and not forgetting the sunscreen during the day.

  7. Wow thank you for sharing this , it really helps to know that there are still products that can help my skin. I would love to have this product for my skin since I have been suffering from pimples ,dry skin and if I didn’t apply make up the next morning my skin always looks as if am tired and haven’t been sleeping, you find people making comments like “comfort did you sleep” or are you OK. You look tired. Ive tried so many products and to be honest they havent helped . So would really love have this product and believe it will help me. Again thank you for your testimony concerning the product .

  8. My skin needs a big ol’ wake up from the winter months. Dassit. And I like trying new products for fit.

  9. I would love to try the Nivea Q10 Plus C on my skin. I.would love to.rejuvenate my skin, energize it and use a product that reduces the fine lines which.are starting to appear.

    • My skin gets super dry and sometimes itchy especially during changing of seasons. I could definitely do with some of these Nivea products.

    I have combination skin and the change of seasons isn’t helping. My face looks tired all the time due to me working a full time job and still having to come home to cook and clean means less time to take care of my skin. This would really be a huge help! 🙂

  13. Hi

    This is on behalf of my mum. Mum totally neglects herself. She ALWAYS puts everyone else first. COOKING CLEANING FEEDING CHAUFEURING and the list is endless and she does it all with a tired smile. I would love her to be pampered and spoilt with these products. mum is 54 years old. she has dry skin and pigmentation. Mum is in menopause and the hormonal changes has simply exacerbated her pigmentation. MUM TRULY DESERVES THIS

    Thank you

    I am out almost for most of the day in harsh weather. My skin needs rejuvenation as it has now become dry and lifeless. Products like X NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream; NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 and the Oxygen Facial Treatment will really help me get my skin back to normal .

  15. Mbali Zwane Reply

    My skin needs that glow?…through juggling work and personal commitments there is not enough time to attend to our skin.. long skin preparation routines… but with this nivea kit life will be more easy!

    I would love to win this amazing Nivea product hamper as my skin is normal to oily with mild pimple breakouts that leaves me with pimples scars. I sometimes fly a lot and find my skin to be tired and at times dry. I am also office based and sitting in an air conditioning office also makes my skin dull because of the air conditioning and not getting enough fresh air . So overall my skin Urgently needs TLC and because I’m not getting younger for those anti-aging eye lines, my skin needs a boost of Vitamin C to help with the antioxidants.

    • Working full-time and Studying part-time is starting to take it’s toll on my face! The Nivea Q10 Plus C hamper would be a lovely treat and a desperately needed pick me up.

  17. Thank you so much ladies for your responses. I’m so glad you’ve now heard of the new NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy series. The lucky winner for this competition is Ntando. Congratulations, you’ve got mail. ?

      Oh man, COVID has been so taxing in so many ways! I completely understand this as my mother is also a front line worker. I believe things have also gotten particularly stressful again now that there’s the vaccine roll out. It’s almost impossible to take leave, but don’t forget you’re your number one priority. Be kind to yourself love 🙂
