''Oh shucks I woke up late and now I only have about an hour to take a bath, get ready, do my makeup, eat breakfast and rush out of home to reach office. On top of that I've got a presentation today and my skin looks so dull and greasy! Arghhh I need to look good but I just don't have the time to go through the whole scrubbing and face pack routine. Why can't any of these brands come out with a product that does all of these in one go???? It would save us so much time, money as well as effort!!"
The above scenario sounds familiar? I'm sure all of us at some point in our lives have said this. I sure have and plenty of times! Thankfully, Nivea listened to us, the always hard pressed for time category of women, and came out with the Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup, a product that claims to provide 5 benefits in Just 5 mins! Sounds fab right? It definitely did to me and I was eager to try it out for myself and see if it really works.
So what is the Total Face Cleanup? Well, it is a face wash cum scrub cum face pack cum oil remover cum spot remover, all packed into one tube. The Total Face Cleanup Regime consists of 3 simple steps:
1. Application of the product all over the face in circular motion, focusing on the forehead, nose and chin area
2. Leaving it on the face for about 3-4 mins
3. Rinsing it off
If you want, you can also use it separately as a face wash, scrub or a pack. The consistency of the product is pretty unique. Its neither a lotion, nor a gel nor is it a soapy face wash. Its like a mask that has tiny granules in it and that also lathers mildly. Love the fragrance of this one because it feels so clean and fresh, similar to the smell of my favorite Nivea creme soft. I've been using the Total Face Cleanup for quite sometime now and I must say that I quite like it. Not so much as a face wash but more as a mild scrub and face pack. Actually, I like it best as a face pack because it gives me clean and oil-free skin after washing off.
The Total Face Cleanup is ideally suited for those with normal to oily skin and is great for summer. For those with very dry skin, it might be drying specially if you are using it as a pack. As for the benefits, I must say though that the product works for me as a face wash and scrub(moderately), as a pack and as an oil remover, it does not do anything for eliminating blackheads. I have not seen any pimple on my face after using this so it must be doing something good to fight bacteria.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this product and would not mind purchasing after this sample gets over. It's a handy thing to have and not just that it saves time, the Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup actually lives up to most of its claims. The price is very reasonable at Rs 199 and definitely worth trying.
