the NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle Ultra Recovery Night Serum It comes in a beautiful pump bottle adorned with tiny silver stars in keeping with its nightly use. I found that the cream’s pump head made it quick and easy to incorporate into my nightly skincare routine.

On my initial use of the product, the first thing I noticed and loved was its scent. Although it has a very light scent, it has something relaxing about it. The product applies to the skin smoothly, without feeling greasy and I found that it absorbed well leaving my face soft and hydrated.

The serum retails at around £14 for a 30ml bottle, depending on where you buy it, which is a cheap alternative to some high-end brands that do the same job.
