Nivea Cellular Anti-age Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream - review


We received this eye cream in our last edits of the Parcel (unboxed here) and I wasn't expecting to like it because I have dry, 37yo eyes and I normally need to buy eye creams from higher-end brands, but happily I love it and I definitely recommend it.

Sure it's not the most amazing eye cream I've ever used, but it's kept my eyes comfortable and hydrated over the few months I've been using it, and it's rich and hydrating without being heavy or greasy. Yay to that.

I'm really enjoying this product and I recommend it.

It's a white cream with a light texture that's rich and hydrating at the same time, and I agree that it's fragrance-free although I can detect the faintest, cream-like scent (which you'd expect because it's, you know, a cream).

I've been using this day and night for around three months now, and I'm pleased to report that my dry, 37yo old eyes love it. It applies and absorbs well, and a little goes a long way so instead of using the usual grain of rice per eye, with this product I use about a grain of rice for both eyes. 

It's already reasonably priced, but the price-per-use aspect makes it even more reasonable. Indeed, it's lasting me absolutely ages and it's rare for me to come across an eye cream that I need to use so little of, since I have dry skin that normally inhales product something chronic.

What I like about this is that it hydrates my eyes and keeps them hydrated all day and overnight. I also like that it's not so rich/heavy that it interferes with my makeup, but it still does enough to juice up my skin and keep it looking its best.

On that, you may have heard me mention before that I have an eye wrinkle that appears over my right eye when I'm using a bung eye cream. Never once has it appeared while I've been using this product, which tells me that it's doing enough in the hydration/plumping department. Tick.

As for claims: yes I think it helps (temporarily) reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles because it plumps up the skin; yes I think it (temporarily) helps with firmness; yes it's lightweight but rich and nourishing in texture; yes it's quickly absorbed; and yes it leaves my skin feeling smoother and more hydrated. 

On the other claims, I can't say whether it helps to improve skin renewal, increase skin's resilience to oxidative stress or results in 'cellular vitality' (my golly) because it's hard to monitor such things, but I can say that my eyes have been happier since I started using it.

Overall this is an excellent eye cream and I can't fault it. I like the results, I like the price-tag and I also like that the tube packaging comes with a skinny nozzle so you can really control the amount you use.

Love. This may just be my new favourite budget eye cream. In fact I think it is.
