NIVEA just launched their brand new Q10plus ANTI-WRINKLE Serum Pearls in Canada. This revolutionary pearl technology is the first of it’s kind for the mass market. As soon as we seen the bottle filled with the tiny golden yellow pearls we were totally excited. The visual of the pearls alone is extremely alluring and luxurious. We couldn’t wait to see how these pearls actually worked and what they felt like.
What girl doesn’t like pearls? Like the elegant Coco Chanel used to say, “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” We couldn’t agree more.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am always on the lookout for new and innovative skin care products. Natasha and I take very good care of our skin. Okay… we might be just a tad obsessive about our skin care. We are both doing our best at having healthy looking skin at every age. I’m in my 40’s and fighting the signs of aging at every opportunity. I’m quite the fighter! And Natasha is only in her 20’s but has learned from me to be preventative. It definitely runs in my family. My mother has always taken very good care of her skin. From a very young age I learned the importance of great skin care.
NIVEA meaning ‘snow white‘ was created in Germany in 1882 by Pharmacist Carl Beiersdorf. It has since become one of the most recognized and trusted skin care brands world wide. Is there anyone out there who hasn’t used a NIVEA product? A NIVEA lip balm at the very least! We don’t think so.
In 1978 it was discovered that coenzyme Q10 was an essential part of the cellular energy production. Beiersdorf researchers were among the first to explore skin care products with coenzyme Q10. Understanding its functionality and benefits in skin led to the creation of their NIVEA Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Face Care Product Line.
How The Pearl Technology Works: NIVEA’s Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls is the ultimate wrinkle-fighter. It contains ingredients that are similar to those found naturally in the skin. Therefore the ingredients actually work in harmony with your skin to prevent the visible signs of aging.
The pearls are filled with the highest concentration of coenzyme Q10 within NIVEA’s Q10plus range and are surrounded in a gel like mixture of hyaluronic acid and creatine. Right before application, the Q10plus pearls mix with the moisturizing gel to form a homogenous serum. This allows the 3 main ingredients of the serum to freshly activate right before every use. You can actually watch a quick 1 minute video on the NIVEA site to see how it works here.
The photo above shows the serum after I pumped some onto my arm and lightly rubbed it a couple of times. The texture appears to be thicker however it is extremely smooth, light, non-greasy, creamy and absorbed instantly after a couple light finger swipes. It actually feels like silk and leaves your skin instantly radiant, refined and glowing. Soooo incredibly amazing.
I especially love wearing it under my foundation. The silky texture of the serum makes it the perfect make up base. It can also be worn under day or night cream to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our verdict: NIVEA’s Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls does all that it claims to do. We have both used the serum for a week and a half and have seen results. Even though our skin types are different, both of us agree that the serum boosts radiance, smooths fine lines and gives the appearance of a healthy glow. It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy at all. We highly recommend it!
NIVEA’s Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls retails for $19.99 and is available at all major drug, grocery and mass merchandise stores across Canada.
