Nivea Tinted Moisturising Day Cream

My skin type is combination to the extreme and I'm constantly having to tell myself to leave off the foundation whist I attempt to improve its condition. I don't suffer from acne, but I am prone to the occasional spot that stands out like a sore thumb on my ghostly skin. When the season changes I get random dry, eczema-like patches and my T-zone is majorly oily. I went through a phase of using just concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes and blotting my oilyness with Rimmel Stay Matte, but that didn;t really do anything for my confidence as my skin still felt sweaty and pale. But then I found the moisturiser of my dreams.

I went into Superdrug whilst shopping in Leeds with the intention of buying some face wipes...and instead I came out with this! Little did I know, but Nivea's Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream would be the answer to all of my problems. It's just a standard tinted moisturiser, but with the coverage of a foundation. 

It rehydrates my skin and gives it a glow without making it look too oily - and it boosts my confidence on lazy days no end! I was a little apprehensive about the fact it was for all skin types, but this really hasn't proved to be an issue for this combination gal. Shinyness can be a sight issue with this cream, after a few hours wear, but some blotting with your powder of choice solves this issue easily. It doesn't cling to my dry patches either.

This moisturiser has quickly become my favourite and with a bit of Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer under my eyes, I feel as confident as I do in foundation! For just £3.65, it's one heck of a bargain.

Before - a lazy, no make up, superdry tracksuit kinda day!

After - all I'm wearing is tinter moisturiser!

Have you ever tried this? Do you have a favourite tinted moisturiser?

Lots of love, Steph xxxx
