My thoughts on Nivea Q10 Power Expert Wrinkle Filler Serum
Always when I read a description like the one for this product I get really skeptical. I guess I am that type of person who simply needs to question things and don’t believe unless I see it for myself. Before I started testing it I actually read a few reviews, and since most of them are positive I was getting more curious to see what my thoughts were.
So this is a collaboration with Buzzador, which means that I receive a product, try it out and write reviews on it.
So first, why am I so skeptic to begin with? Well as I said before it is in my nature. I do feel that a lot of times people are expected to have a certain opinion on a product and that is just the norm. I often find myself on the opposite side of the general thoughts about certain products. Why that is I really don’t know, and I am not to speculate in this post.
So back to the review
It comes in a long tube with a clear nozzle. I am not a fan of the nozzle and would have preferred a pointy nozzle instead since I do feel that I don’t see where I put the cream until it is too late and it is already on my skin.
Other than that I feel that it comes in a rather nice packaging.
The name and description of this product Q10 Power Expert Wrinkle Filler Serum reminds me more a filler used in renovating my home than something I would put on my face. But hey, I am not judging. And I always have an open mind.
So what are my thought
I have been using this product in so many different ways trying to find out if it is working on me or not. I have been using it together with my normal skincare routine and that was a total fail. It wont penetrate and it starts pilling. When I use it with just a toner and a moisturizer it wont penetrate and it start pilling.
When I fill in my wrinkles and leave it (not moving my face at all) it actually blurres my lines a little (as can a blurring primer do to some extent) as soon as I move my face (and my natural lines is moving) that effect is gone and I get product pilling.
When I use this product with makeup it is a total fail as well. My makeup wont work, no matter what base my BB cream or tinted moisturizer has.
So is this something you would spend money on? Well maybe it is. It might work amazingly for you even if it was a total fail for me.
This is not a product for me at all. It contains silicone and I do feel that the only thing this product does is to blur my wrinkles a tiny bit until I start to move my face.
I give this product 0/7
