Whenever I’m asked by my readers to recommend a really well formulated, affordable anti-ageing skin care line I always suggest the NIVEA Q10 Power range.
I’ve also been lucky enough to visit NIVEA’s head offices & laboratories in Hamburg, Germany where I got the opportunity to chat to many of their scientists & product developers. When I say their products are brilliantly formulated, I really mean it.
I was impressed to see the NIVEA Q10 Power formulation has been updated and now contains 100% identical Q10 to the one made by our skin. Q10 works by reinforcing skin with energy & protection to naturally fight the ageing process. As we age, our skins natural levels of Q10 decreases, leading to visible ageing. This is why we need to refill the skins levels of Q10.
So how does the enhanced new NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE formula differ from its predecessor?
It now contains Q10 which is 100 percent identical to the one made by your skin. It works like this: the production process of NIVEA Q10 has now changed from bacterial to a natural-yeast fermentation. This means NIVEA Q10 in a completely pure form and with the utmost natural quality that works in perfect harmony with your skin, complementing its own Q10 in the most inherent way, thereby strengthening your skin’s anti-age defence system. The enhanced formula refills skin’s anti-age defence to naturally fight wrinkles and firm skin in 2 weeks.
Added to NIVEA’s skin-identical Q10 is Creatine – another ingredient which the body has naturally – an organic acid that boosts skin firming fibers, stimulating collagen production and activating the skin’s own anti-age defence. It visibly fights fine lines and wrinkles – even those deep stubborn ones!
Below is a recap of the products available in the NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE range
NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE Replenishing Serum Pearls, R259.99 for 40ml
This innovative serum works to replenish the levels of Q10 in the skin, helping reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles while slowing the formation of new ones. The concentrated high-performance Q10 Plus Pearls are embedded in a moisturising hydrogel that contains Creatine (boosts cells energy, helping counteract aging) and Hyaluronic acid (hydrates and plumps the skin) that work synergistically to hydrate and protect the skin.
The pearls themselves are loaded with a high concentration of Q10, and with every use, they’re freshly activated – guaranteeing an effective supply of active ingredients to the skin.
By pressing the nozzle, the moisturising gel and the high-performance pearls are drawn into the dispenser head, where the pearls are broken down and mixed with the moisturising gel.
When you apply this mixture onto the skin, it activates, creating a silky texture that leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated. After regular use of four weeks, deep wrinkles are visibly reduced.
Massage a small amount onto face, neck & décolletage morning and evening before applying day or night creams.
NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE Day Cream SPF 15 R189.99 for 50ml & SPF 30 R209.99 for a 50ml
This day cream is a good choice for those with normal to dry skin as it intensively nourishes the skin for 24 hours. It absorbs quickly and has a lovely silky texture & very subtle, comforting scent. It works to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles while firming the skin. It’s such a lovely, gentle formula, even sensitive skin types can use it.
NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE Revitalising Night Cream, R189.99 for 50ml
A night cream is important to help regenerate the skin while you sleep. This one provides intensive moisture throughout the night and helps to visibly reduce wrinkles. It hydrates the skin beautifully and I love how it’s scented with the iconic NIVEA fragrance. This is one of my most recommended night creams & almost all women who try it, absolutely adore it.
NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE Eye Cream, R189.99 for 15ml
This beauty really packs a punch and works to visibly reduce the appearance of eye contour wrinkles and dark under-eye circles. It also helps firm the eye contour while nourishing it. All you need is a pin head size applied with your ring finger around the eye area. Use morning & evening.
NIVEA Q10 POWER ANTI-WRINKLE + FIRMING 10 Minute Sheet Mask R59 for 1 mask
I’m so happy that NIVEA have added this biodegradable fibre sheet mask to the Q10 Power line up. This sheet mask is super soft and easy to fit onto the face. It’s a treat for those wanting smoother & firmer skin. Again, the formulation combines both Q10 & Creatine to boost collagen production & prevent premature skin ageing. Leave this sheet mask to work its magic for 10 minutes, then massage in any product left over on the skin
NIVEA Q10 POWER Anti-Age Multi-Action Youth Oil Booster R299 for a 30ml
There’s also a new addition to the range – the Anti-Age Multi-Action Youth Oil Booster, which contains a powerful combination of Q10 and Organic Argan Oil to give the skin a youthful boost. This multi-action oil helps to visibly reduce wrinkles, deeply nourish the skin and illuminate it with a radiant, natural glow.
The Youth Oil Booster has an exceptionally silky, non-greasy formula that blends the natural power of NIVEA’s 100 percent skin identical Q10 with 99 percent Organic Argan Oil. The latter, commonly known as “liquid gold”, is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E, meaning this formulation can deliver long-term improvement in the resilience of the skin barrier. It also nourishes for up to 24 hours – ideal for women who’ve noticed the appearance of wrinkles and a loss of youthful radiance. Hard to replicate with make-up alone, NIVEA Q10 POWER Anti-Age Multi-Action Youth Oil Booster brings that glow back to your skin, all that while treating it against the noticeable signs of ageing.
I like how you’re able to customize the way you use the NIVEA Q10 POWER Anti-Age Multi-Action Youth Oil Booster. You can either use it alone (sweep a few drops, applied onto the palm of your hand and gently massage into your skin) or mix with your NIVEA Q10 POWER Day or/and Night Cream or underneath your foundation to give it extra slip. And, the oil can be layered up, depending on the moisture levels your skin requires (add another layer if further hydration is needed).

AD/ NIVEA Q10 is one of my favourite anti-ageing lines – one I often recommend to women concerned with the visible effects of ageing and wanting an affordable skin care range. I'm very excited that @niveasouthafrica have just launched their Q10 Power Anti-Age Youth Oil Booster (R299 for a 30ml). This multi-action oil with Q10 & Argan oil helps to visibly reduce wrinkles, deeply nourish the skin & give it a vital glow. The oil is silky, non-greasy & absorbs quickly. Tip: I find applying a bit of this oil onto skin just before foundation application gives the product more slip & really gives the skin a gorgeous glow. #Sponsored # #NIVEAFaceCare #NIVEAQ10Power #AntiWrinkle #NIVEAYouthfulMe #NIVEAYouthBooster #BeautyOver40 #MatureBeauty
