I received this for free from ChickAdvisor, in exchange for my honest review.
Drugstore primers are something a lot of people look for, because the prices at higher-end stores tend to be a little crazy. When I saw this was being offered, I had to give it a try because I have dry skin, and I'm on a hunt for a primer that I like.
This is a cream/gel consistency. It is heavily fragranced, which is surprising because it's also supposed to be for sensitive skin types. It dries down fairly quickly, creating a smooth base to apply your makeup.
I will say on its own, it is not enough for my dry skin. I have to wear another moisturizer underneath the primer to be sure that my skin gets hydrated, or else I'm left with dry patches.
I got this product free to test; having dry skin (and quite sensitive) I was hesitant to try it. The product has a strong perfume -i usually buy fragrance free- but it fades away after you apply it. It is a super refreshing and light cream -it almost seem like your face is soaked after applying a generous amount- but to my surprise, a few minutes later my face was dry and hydrated. No grease left so no shiny skin and no sticky skin after and I find that amazing, esp. in a cream for dry skin!
Nivea 2-in-1 moisturizing primer is a very lightweight primer. It has a slight scent to it but not too overpowering. The consistency is kinda gel-like and it's very easy to be absorbed by skin. I've received it free and have only tried it for a few days. Even though it says dry to sensitive skin, sadly it's not moisturizing enough for my ultra dry skin in winter time. My skin was silky smooth after applying it, however, my skin around my cheeks became flaky after applying the foundation. For someone who has dry skin, it's definitely not enough during winter time. But I think it'd be perfect for normal skin or for other seasons (just not cold and dry winter in canada). I'll definitely try it again when it's warmer since I really like how it feels on my skin. #gotitfree
I've never used a Nivea face cream before, but was pleasantly surprised when I tried it!
Firstly, I love the scent of it! I know scent in skincare isn't recommended, but I personally don't like a non-scented product. I want the application of face cream to be an experience of the senses - a relaxing moment in my day. It smells fresh and clean, which makes it feel more luxurious. There were NO skin sensitivity issues as a result of the scent.
The texture is like a creamy gel, which is why it absorbs quickly. Within 30 seconds, there is no greasy residue (compared to a regular moisturizer, which takes at least 15 mins to absorb), making it ideal to apply right before makeup application. I usually apply my moisturizer about 15-30 mins prior to makeup application (when I eat breakfast), so a regular cream with a slower absorption rate doesn't bother me. As a result, I did find the Nivea product to be less than ideal in this situation. After 15 to 30 minutes, I felt like I needed additional moisturizer before I started my makeup routine. Had I applied makeup right away, it wouldn't have been an issue.
Regarding its "primer" label - I didn't find it helped makeup stay on any better than my previous routine of creamy face cream and a specialized makeup primer, followed by foundation and powder. But I am sure if you don't usually use a separate makeup primer, this product would help.
Overall, the product is nice and I think I would buy it again (I would like to test it longer than 3 days before making a final decision).
NIVEA 2in1 primer for dry to sensitive skin provided a good base for my makeup.
This primer gave adequate moisture and a mattifying effect throughout the day. My makeup stayed fresh and I didn't get oily. It certainly did the job is was supposed to!
When applying, I did get a bit of a tightening sensation, which subsided after makeup application. No reaction at all on my sensitive skin, including neither redness nor clogged pores.
La Base hydratante 2-en-1 de NIVEA pour peau sensible est légère et convient parfaitement aux peaux sensibles.
J'ai eu la chance d'essayer gratuitement la Base hydratante 2-en-1 de NIVEA pour peau sensible et je l'ai beaucoup aimé. La texture est agréable, elle s'applique facilement car elle fond directement sur la peau et elle hydrate bien pour une journée. Peut-être pas adaptée pour les gros froids d'hiver, mais convient pour le reste du temps. Il est facile et rapide de se maquiller juste après l'avoir appliquée. Elle a de plus une bonne odeur, légère, qui reste sur le peau quelques heures après application.
Finalement, c'est un très bon rapport qualité-prix!
My skin is really dry so I definitely have been looking for a product that would help moisturize my skin when I'm looking to go out for a night on the town. This has helped my face feel fresh and has taken the hassle out of doing makeup. It's helped speed up the process and by the end of the night my face is left feeling amazing. The process of using the moisturizer is easy and quick. So if your looking for something to help that dry face of yours this is worth a buy!
I have eczema prone skin, so I am always hesitant when trying new products. I have used Nivea products in the past and it never bothered my skin. So when I saw this being offered by ChickAdvisor, I knew I wanted to try it.
This primer has a strong scent to it but it is pleasant and goes away when you rub it in. It made my skin feel soft and it wasn't greasy. Applying makeup over top of it was a breeze! My makeup applied flawlessly and using this primer didn't change my foundation's consistency. My skin feels hydrated still (about 5 hours after initial application) and my makeup isn't looking cakey or fading.
Overall, super impressed!

First off, this product has a nice, light floral scent which I really enjoy! It isn't too strong so if you aren't a fan of scents don't immediately write this product off!
I have very dry skin and found it added a nice amount of moisture and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or oily. It made my makeup application look flawless and I also did notice my foundation hadn't broken up by the end of the night.
So happy to have found a product that can both moisturize my skin and help my makeup last ! Definitely recommend and will repurchase.
I thought the primer would be the same consistency of any other primer. Upon opening it I realized it was more a cream. The smell of the primer is really nice, and leaves your face feeling pretty smooth. I did have a few dry patches on my face that still showed up. But it wasn't as bad as before. It's a great product and I will definitely continue to use it. THANKS CHiCK ADVISOR.
