I am a huge fan of oxygen products although I was a little distressed when I read the ingredients of this cream. It does contain 15% oxygen which is extremely beneficial to the skin by way of detoxifying and purifying the skin. However, there are a great deal more chemicals in this product than oxygen and this counteracts the goodness for me. Needless o say when my budget was limited I was intrigued to give this a try.
The cream is a medium consistency and absorbs easily into the skin giving quite a refreshing feel. It left no greasy residue or sheen and moisturizes the skin well. This brings me onto the packaging which has completely let the product down! The bottle is an aluminium canister with an air propelled pump dispenser. No matter how hard I tried the pump dispenses far too much product in one go and due to the nature of the sealed unit you cannot put the excess product back into the bottle. This uses up the can very quickly and I was really frustrated at the wastage. Why Nivea chose to use a shaving foam style canister for this cream is a mystery and for me this really let the product down. I would like to say that it is good value for money but due to the dispensing issues it simply is not.
Overall the cream does a good job in moisturizing and brightening the skin tone and I suffered no irradiation or breakouts at any point but I did not see good enough results to encourage me to do battle with awful packaging again
