Review: Nivea Express Hydration Primer

I have purchased a lot of moisturisers in my time, but I have to admit this Express Hydration Primer is literally the best. This moisturiser comes tailor for two different skin types - Normal & Combination skin and Dry & Sensitive skin. The skin on my face is fairly dry and easily irritated, especially now spring is here. When I first heard about Nivea's Express Hydration Primer I was very excited and highly hopeful, especially as there was one suitable for Dry & sensitive skin. So I ordered some from Superdrug online and it was actually on offer at £2.45, from £4.99 so hurry up as the offer is ending very soon.  

The primer is packaged in a daily large box which is somewhat deceptive as the pot itself is a lot smaller and contains 50ml of product. The pot is made of glass and very sturdy so a lot of care has been put into nice presentation.

Last few days I have been using the Express Hydration Primer in place of my usual moisturiser and I have noticed a really big difference already. It glides onto the skin effortlessly and you need to use very little at a time so despite it's small size, the 50ml pot should last a fair while. Nivea's Primer absorbs instantly leaving no greasy behind however it does a create a smooth base for easy make up application and because it dries so quickly make up can be applied straight away which is brilliant
 when you're in a rush! I seriously don't have time in the mornings. 

So "Does it work?" Well, yes it does. As mentioned before the primer leaves a smooth, non greasy base on the skin and since I've been using this I have found that my foundation smooths onto my skin far more easily and evenly than usual with going patchy on and dry bits.
The primer keeps my power and blusher in place too so on the whole my make up lasts a lot longer which I think is down to the lack of greasiness. The primer is extremely moisturising and hydrating so my skin stays soft all day without any dryness, but it isn't oily so my face does get shiny like it used to do with my old moisturiser. My make up stayed looking fresh until 7pm and don't forget I'm a farm girl so I am outside all day long, nearly 12 hours some days and I never have time to touch up my make up throughout the day! 

I would really recommend Nivea's Express Hydration Primer, especially if you suffer from dry sensitive skin like I do! I think i have found my miracle product and I will be stocking up whenever I get a chance. I hope you believe me when when I say it truly works but if you don't, I urge you to try it and experience for yourself this amazing moisturising primer!

I also purchased, Nivea Daily Essentials Regenerating Night Cream for when I go to bed! I wake up with nourishing and provides a fresh skin feeling in the morning. I just love it!!
