My thoughts on Nivea Cellular luminous630 anti age dark spot serum
As a lot of you already know I always says that it is impossible to say anything when it comes to anti aging products. And when reading the description of this product my first impression is that it is just so much nonsense. This is nothing that is specific to this brand but more my general thought when it comes to a lot of skincare brands.
Not saying that all this is bullshit but more that a lot of brands use so many fancy words like xx % is proven and patents here and there and I just find that they make it so difficult to trust what they are saying. And that is something I really had to think about when reviewing this product.
This serum comes in a really nice packaging. It is a hard plastic bottle with a pump.
Texture and scent
The serum is really creamy. It reminds me more of a light moisturizer, or an emulsion rather than a serum. So I do find the name a little bit confusing. I have tried lofs of serums and this is the fist time I have experienced this texture. Not saying it is wrong, more confusing to me. But I do guess that most people knows what a serum is and how to use it. If they would have named it an emulsion I don’t think they would sell as much.
It is scented and I do find the scent to be a little strong (but I have a sensitive nose).
As for my real thoughts about the product I am a little bit conflicted.
The claims of this product is really out there. Claims like that a product can fill deep wrinkles within 7 days and claims to see visible results within 2 weeks on spots that are accumulated over 10 years is just wow. And No. When brands claims are this high I always get disappointed They promise that their product can solve all this within a very short span of time and that is just not possible. So am I telling them that they are liars.
Well, no not really, more that they exaggerating big time. If you have not used any brightening product you can see a change to your skin really fast. But age spots that has been accumulated over 10 years, how can they possibly know. Using the term fills in the wrinkles, well that is just like using some kind of putty on your face instead of dealing with the real issue isn’t it.
I know I sound super skeptic about this product, and I am but not towards the product it self more the claims and expectations on it.
So enough of my ranting and back to the serum. The first time I tried this I was really impressed by how moisturizing it is. My skin is super dry and I always struggle finding a product that can help with my dry skin and this was really amazing on keeping the moisturize in. It absorbs fast into my skin as well leaving it feeling super nice and smooth. I do use a full Korean skincare routine and it worked well with every other product I put on top or underneath it.
I am really conflicted about giving this product a grade. One part of me really like this and I feel that it is super moisturizing on my skin and for that reason only I could give it a 7, but since I do find its claims to be rather out there and I did not notice any difference in my hyper pigmentations nor did I see any filling of deep wrinkles (not really knowing what that means). I also feel that I had too short time to try the product out to be able to really say anything about it. But since their claims are visible results within 2 weeks I guess it is up to them.
This is a product that I really enjoy using. It feels super hydrating to my skin and works well with all of my other skincare products. But since the claims of this products is so high I really cant say that they live up to any of those, at least not on my skin. As a moisturizing product I would give this a 7 but since the claims of the product isn’t that it is super moisturizing the grade will have to be lower.
I give this product 3/7
