Product Review: Alternate Uses for NIVEA Visage Anti-Wrinkle Q10 Plus Eye Cream

NIVEA Visage Anti-Wrinkle Q10 Plus Eye Cream
Ok, I really wouldn't know about it's anti-wrinkle qualities (I'm 21 years old) but I've found it very useful for conditioning, protecting, and improving the skin on my eye area.

The skin around your eye area is considerably thinner than on the rest of your face, for most people this means constantly dealing wth dry skin.

The great thing about NIVEA Visage Anti-Wrinkle Q10 Plus Eye Cream is that helps smooth and condition the area without being too heavy, greasy, or irritating. I like to use it at night after removing my makeup, and sometimes before applying my makeup in the morning depending on how dry my lids are.

Here's what I loved most about it: about 2 minutes after applying a thin layer to my lids, eyeshadow application was so much more successful, it was about as successful as any eyeshadow primer on the market today. (Though I can't say the same for how well it prevented creasing.) The eyeshadow colors showed up bolder and went on the lid with ease.

Bottom line: eyshadow and dry eyelids are mortal enemies, the more moisturized your lids, the more you'll have an easy and gorgeous shadow application. Try it out!


  1. wow who would have thought to use it as a primer :O
    I'm currently using a primer by Rimmel, forgot what it's called and I'm pretty happy with it :)
    But then again I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to makeup, I learn from you :P

  2. That's a good idea, especially if regular primers are over-priced. Great tip. :)
