NIVEA’s Care for Innovation Showcase Recap
On Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending the NIVEA Care For Innovation Breakfast and Showcase held at the Beta Bar, Sydney.
It was such a lovely event and a great chance to meet the wonderful team at NIVEA and learn about their new products. The format of the event was quite unique too and rather than just sitting down and being told about the products we went on a story telling circuit, visiting different stations and learning about these new products with the NIVEA team and some special guests.
Below I share some of the new products you will see hitting our shelves soon as well as some cult classics!
NIVEA Daily Essentials Caring Micellar Water - Bigger Bottle and for Sensitive + Normal Skin
With Tobi Henney
The Micellar Water you know and love will not only come in a new bigger bottle but it will be available in two formulas: for normal skin and sensitive skin.
The Sensitive Skin formula has been a personal favourite of mine and makes cleansing my face and removing makeup, oils and dirt a breeze with no rinsing required! Simply pour some on a cotton pad, use in circular motions on the face and neck and in minutes your skin feels fresh, soft and supple.
The new Normal Skin Type formula is enriched with Vitamin E while the Sensitive Skin Type formula contains Grapeseed Oil and dexpanthenol to moisturise, soothe the skin and reduce redness.
It was great to see makeup artist Tobi Henney partner with NIVEA and share a couple of ways she loves to use their Micellar Water on herself and her clients. The first way is to clean up and sharpen eye liner to get that nice precise line. The second way, which I had never considered, it to remove lash glue. She also loves that it is an all in one product which doesn't leave any residue.
The NIVEA Sensitive and Normal Skin Micellar Water will be available in 400ml bottles from September 15 for $11.99 AUD each.
NIVEA MEN Protect & Care Range
With Frank Arthur + Scott Purcell
Male grooming has become a bigger focus than ever before with the modern man wanting to look good and take pride in his appearance. Thanks to the NIVEA MEN Protect and Care range your man is covered.
Influencers Frank and Scott from Man of Many joined us and explained that guys like the convenience of being able to buy skincare from their local pharmacy, supermarket and online while the masculine packaging makes them feel comfortable purchasing it. NIVEA have worked hard to create a line with a warmer and more masculine scent and matte packaging in a darker, tighter blue that men will really enjoy using as part of their daily grooming routine and feel proud to have on their vanities.
One product I spotted which I was definitely curious about was the NIVEA Men Protect and Care 2 Phase Aftershave Lotion. This bottle contains a blue and clear formula but once shaken the liquid is combined to provide the protection of a balm and the refreshing effect of a lotion thanks to the cooling menthol. This is definitely unlike traditional aftershaves and one I know my man will love!
Available now for $11.99 AUD.
Other products in the NIVEA Mens Protect and Care range include Shaving Gel, Exfoliating Facial Scrub, Face Wash, Moisturiser and Post Shave Balm.
With Stephanie Darling
How could we forget the iconic cult classic NIVEA Creme. This deeply nourishing and rich formula is a household favourite with five tins being sold around the world every second! It also has a beautiful and calming scent with base notes of bergamot and orange and floral notes of jasmine and rose. This cream builds a protective layer on the skin to protect it from the heat and cold while preventing a loss of moisture by retaining it in the skin. It is a lovely thick formula and is definitely a must-have for winter to keep your skin looking healthy and fresh.
But apart from being a skincare saviour did you know that it can be used as a hair treatment, lip balm, to soothe rashes and to keep your favourite leather jacket, handbag and shoes looking like new?
Beauty Editor and author, Stephanie Darling said one of the ways she loves to use the NIVEA Creme is by applying it to the hands and wearing a pair of cotton gloves for a deeply nourishing hand treatment.
Available now in the classic aluminium tin for $4.20 AUD (60ml) and $7.99 AUD (150ml).
NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Volume Filling Pearls
With Marilyn Bracks
Now I definitely saved the best for last with the new NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Volume Filling Pearls. I may only be in my early 30's but I believe prevention is definitely better than a cure so I like to use anti-ageing products to try and keep my face and neck looking fresh, youthful and firm.
This formula contains a unique combination of powerful ingredients that work with skin cells to improve skin cell renewal, increase volume and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Every pearl is enriched with Collagen Booster, Creatine and the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid and with each pump the formula is freshly activated, bursting the pearls and blending them with the surrounding moisturising gel to create a silky serum.
When you first dispense the product you will see white broken pearls in the gel but as you massage it into the skin it dissolves leaving the skin hydrated and supple. Apply this high performance formula morning and night to a cleansed face and neck before you apply your regular day/night cream.
Available now for $32.99 AUD.
