NIVEA Cleansing Wipes effectively remove both light and heavy makeup without any greasy feeling. 

Q. What does being a NIVEA Girl mean to you?

Being a NIVEA Girl means having a positive mindset, being confident, and mindful about your own skin. I feel it is important for a woman to look presentable in order to tackle daily challenges, because looking good brings out her charisma and confidence, and makes her feel positive and self-assured. 

Q. What’s your favourite NIVEA product?

I love NIVEA White Oil Clear Super Mousse facial cleanser. Not only does it reduce oiliness, it is also extremely moisturising. It contains no soap, making it gentle and suitable for people like me who have sensitive skin. Plus, I am a huge fan of fluffy and dense foam cleansers! 

Q. How do you remove your makeup?

My skin is oily and easily irritable, so many products are too harsh for me. I have been using NIVEA 3-in-1 Caring Micellar Cleansing Wipes, which are extremely effective in removing stubborn makeup gently. The wipes leave my face clean, soft and moisturised, and help to prevent breakouts. They are also really convenient and easy to carry around.

What’s your skin concern?

Different skin types require different skincare routines. Start by choosing the right NIVEA cleansing wipe to remove makeup and grime for a fresh, clean face. 

1. Sensitive Skin

Use: Pure Cleansing Wipes

Sensitive skin requires a bit more TLC, otherwise it could become red, angry, and itchy. These wipes are mild enough for daily use and do not contain fragrance, alcohol and colourants (which are potential triggers). They also have vitamin E to provide emollient and antioxidant benefits, and provitamin B5 to soothe inflammation.

2. Combination Skin

Use: 3-in-1 Refreshing Cleansing Wipes

It’s dry, it’s oily, it’s frustrating. People with combination skin need to find the right skincare balance. These alcohol-free wipes have lotus extract, vitamin E, and Hydra IQ (a NIVEA-exclusive ingredient) to cleanse and tone skin while maintaining its natural moisture balance.

3. Dry Skin

Use: 3-in-1 Gentle Cleansing Wipes

Dry skin can have an ageing effect – it tends to look more wrinkled, rough and dull than other skin types. With these wipes, you can gently cleanse and hydrate at the same time. Almond oil makes skin soft and supple, calendula oil soothes and calms, and the patented Hydra IQ provides instant and long-lasting moisture.

4. Clogged Pores

Use: Make Up Clear Cleansing Wipes

The bad news: Clogged pores can lead to blackheads, whiteheads and acne. The good news? You can keep them clean and less visible. Formulated with nourishing vitamin E, these wipes thoroughly remove dirt, oil and makeup. They do not contain alcohol, parabens, silicone, perfume and colourants.

All Skin Types

No matter how tired or lazy you feel, you still need to cleanse your face at the end of each day. These wipes, which are infused with NIVEA micellar water, offer a quick and easy way to remove waterproof makeup without drying out your skin. The paraben-free formula includes vitamin E for added hydration.
