Nivea Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream

I seem to be constantly on the search for a 'Holy Grail' moisturiser. I've been using Neal's Yard Orange Flower Moisturiser for some time, and although I love it, I started to find that it wasn't really working any long on my nose. I suffer from quite bad dry skin on my nose and I really need a good moisturiser to combat the flakiness. But for some reason this had stopped working it's magic.

So off I went any on the hunt for another moisturiser. Now not only do I suffer from dry, flaky skin, but I also have a tendency to break out when the moisturiser are quite heavy and thick - so I fall into the combination skin box, however I also find my skin to be quite sensitive. As you can see not an easy task to find a good moisturiser.

I picked up the Nivea Pure and Natural, as I've always liked Nivea as a brand, but have never really used their moisturisers. I picked up the Soothing Day Cream for Dry to Sensitive Skin.

Firstly, it contains Chamomile and Moroccan Argan Oil and 95% of the ingredients are from natural origins.

It also doesn't include any parabens, silicones, colourants or mineral oils.

It initially looks like quite a thick moisturiser but once on the skin it's nice and light and soaks in quickly.

I think this falls into the moisturiser that have a gel like feel to them, much the same as the Neal's Yard moisturiser, and I have to admit that it's definitely my preferred type of moisturiser.

Also I love the smell - it's so refreshing and you definitely smell the chamomile.

Overall I love this moisturiser. It soaks in quickly and leaves my skin soft and hydrated.

For £5.10 from Boots, this is seriously looking like a good contender for re-purchasing and HG status.

Always good to find a great bargain skincare wise. I must admit I'm stuck in a rut really!

Nivea is pretty much the only think that works on my sensitive skin. I haven't tried one yet though...perhaps next time. :)
