Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub Reviews

Hello Girlies,

Here I am back with another review of scrubs. As you might have known till now that scrubs are one of the most loved and used product in my daily beauty regimen. I am a dry skinned who loved using scrubs on daily basis. I have used quite a variety of scrubs from a number of brands. And during this journey of mine I came through this scrub from the house of Nivea.

Let’s see if it fared on my skin or not.

Product description of Nivea Aqua Effect skin refining scrub

“Enriched with Vitamin E and Hydra IQ, this scrub thoroughly refines and exfoliates the skin.”

NIVEA Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub leaves the skin thoroughly refined and exfoliated, looking healthy and beautiful.

How it works:

NIVEA Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub enriched with Vitamin E and Hydra IQ:

  • Exfoliates thoroughly while removing dead skin cells
  • Refines the skin’s surface for an even complexion while respecting the skin’s own moisture balance
  • Is especially mild to the skin thanks to its Vitamin E formula

Directions for use:

Wet the face thoroughly. Now, apply the scrub on wet face liberally. Squeeze the scrub to take out the desired quantity. Rub the scrub on your hands with water and apply thoroughly on your face. I leave it for 2-3 minutes on my face to get the maximum benefits of scrub.

Now, rinse the face thoroughly with water to get that squeaky clean face.

Shelf Life:

This scrub comes in medium sized tube which weighs medium thus making it convenient to carry. It comes with a flip flop opening which makes the product quite easy to be dispensed with. With slight pressure the scrub comes out. The opening makes the scrub amount to be dispensed controllable. But when pressure is applied on tube scrub particles comes out making the opening messy. This makes it very inefficient for travelling.


The scrub comes in white colour with blue tiny granules in it. This tiny granules are not harsh on skin but even then they perform their task of scrubbing effectively. Texture wise the scrub is creamy but quite easily blend able. The texture of this scrub from Nivea is more like a sea salt. When the scrub comes in contact with water it lathers profusely leaving behind a clean face.

My experience with Nivea Aqua Effect skin refining scrub

This scrub effectively removes the dirt and blackheads from the face leaving the face clean and clear. The scrub when massaged on face feels quite tender and not at all harsh on skin. After a tiring day or even to awake your face in the morning this scrub is just perfect.

Other advantage with this scrub is that it does not deprives face of any moisture unlike other scrubs. This Nivea refining sugar scrub maintains the PH balance of face thereby making the face neither drying nor stretching.

Even little quantity of this scrub lathers quite well thus eliminating the use of using too much product. So, this scrub will defiantly go a long way.



Whether I would recommend this product

This fits in perfectly as my daily use gentle scrubber.
