Hi lovelies!

Today’s product review is on the Nivea Perfect and Radiant light moisturizer.

A little back story about why I got this moisturizer. I had been using the Stay young cream for a while and I was enjoying it but I went down this rabbit hole of skincare research and I panicked. In my review of the Stay young cream which you can read here, I mentioned that I found the producers quite shady. Well, that was exactly why I panicked and bought Nivea instead.

Product Details: Nivea Perfect and Radiant light moisturizer is a product of Nivea brand. The Nivea Perfect and Radiant face cream come in 2 variants. The cup cream (day and night cream) and the liquid light moisturizer.

Price: 50ml at 2,500 naira. Price may vary based on your location.

  • Lightweight and moisturizing
  • Gives the skin a dewy glowy instant look.
  • Contains SPF 15 which is okay for someone like me who isn’t always exposed to the sun but needs to use sunscreen.
  • Portable and travel-friendly.
  • Works for all skin types


  • It visibly darkened my face
  • It is quite expensive for the size.

Rating: 6/10

So, this part of the review is an update. I love this moisturizer. It is lightweight and does not make me sweat compared to others. The only thing I would point out is that patience and consistency is the key to this moisturizer. This face moisturizer smoothened my face, evened my skin out and moisturized my face. I got no reactions from using it also and as someone with sensitive skin, that was important for me.

When I first used the Nivea moisturizer on my face, I somehow felt it darkened my face and I do not know why. But it turned out that’s not the case.  I had not used it for long enough to be able to notice a difference in my skin. So, my advice would be to give it a bit of time before you see the effects.

Also, I use it as a face primer before makeup. I cannot explain but it works as a primer!!!

Always use sunscreen!!!

Until my next post, Kisses!

    Hi Anunu,

    I agree with you.. it does darken the skin and I don’t know why. If it is darkening you, I advice you to stop it.

This is not the Nivea Even and Radiant cream, this is Nivea Perfect and Radiant cream, it is written on ir. There’s a huge difference between both. What you bought is Perfect and Radiant but you’re writing Even and Radiant, both creams are extremely different.

    Hi Kay,

    Thanks for notifying me of that.

    It has been corrected now.
