Nivea Aqua Sensation cleansing gel, a review

Working in a drug-store has some advantages. One of these advantages is, seeing new product before most regular consumers see it. A few months ago the store I work at was stocked with this new Aqua Sensation cleansing gel from Nivea. Of course at that time, it couldn't be sold yet but I did become curious because the bottle itself looked pretty intresting to me. Once the cleanser could be bought, I was the first one to take it home!

The bottle
As I already said, I immediatly fell in love with the transparant light blue bottle. The bottle looks like a water bottle, but of course you can't drink this gel. On the front of the bottle the Nivea Visage logo is printed. Also, waterdrops are printed on the front of the bottle, giving this bottle an "aqua"look. The bottle is quite long and has a flat top and bottom, so when your bottle is almost empty it can be turned upside down making sure the final drops of gel are also being used. While squeezing the bottle, I noticed the bottle is made of firm material, a bit of a power-squeeze is neccessary to get some gel out.

The cleansing effect
I mainly wear dark eye shadow and black eye pencil, some rouge and sometimes I do use mascara. I expect a cleansing gel to be thorough when it comes to removing all of my make up and I very much dislike the fact that a cleansing gel doesn't entirely whipe off my make-up. The first time I cleaned my face with this gel, I noticed I really didn't need to use that much of the gel itself. A little drop was more than enough to clean my entire face. When this gel comes in contact with water, it immediatly starts to foam. The gel is soft and I feel like I am taking a bubble-bath while cleaning my face with this gel. After rinsing of the gel, my skin feels very soft and relaxed. Besides that I have a very clean skin as well, no make-up left behind, making this gel the first one I've used that could really do what it promises.

My final conclusion

At first I was a bit in doubt about buying this gel, I found it a bit expensive. But because of the nicely looking bottle, I decided to buy it anyway. And I am glad I did! This Nivea product really takes care of my skin, it is easy to use while showering and you don't have to use that much of gel to reach a perfect cleaning effect. Overall, I do think I will buy this Nivea Aqua Sensation gel again, mainly because the gel really cleans my face well. And with the amounts of make-up I wear from time to time, it is a tough job doing a great cleaning job. Happy to know this gel is working for me!
