One Step Skincare

I know just the title of this post will be enough to send those religous skincarers amoungst you into somewhat of a tizzy (a word I really don't use enough), but I promise I try to practise an immaculate routine most days. However, when you've snoozed your alarm about 10 times and have just 10 minutes to be out the door or get in super late at night after a few too many cocktails and a cheeky packet of chips later, smothering yourself with lots of lotions and potions just isn't practical. I also travel an awful lot, often without a suitcase, so can only take as many bottles as my Zara bucket bag can carry. So today I thought I'd bring a little skincare saviour to your attention that removes makeup, cleanses, tones and moisturises in one simple step. You don't even need water (sorting out your skin whilst taking off/putting on the PJ's? #winning). The Nivea Daily Essentials has a cream consistency that feels very refreshing and nourishing on the skin. You can use it on it's own for real one step skincare or as part of a wider routine and massaging it into the skin then wiping the excess away with a cotton pad takes seconds but leaves your face feeling very clean and refreshed. It's not scented or stripping so would be perfect for all skin types and I've really been enjoying using it. It does a good job at taking off everything but my mascara too, giving Bioderma a run for it's money. My skin had been going through a bit of a tantrum phase and I think sometimes it's important to simplify your skincare routine a bit and touch wood I'm now having a good skin moment again, which is just in time for the Zoella Beauty launch party tonight eeeeek! And at just £3.59 it really doesn't matter if it's purchased and stashed away in the emergency '2 minutes to leave/go to sleep' drawer.    

Are you partial to 'one step skincare'?


  1. I really enjoyed this post Meg and I completely agree with you about stripping back the skincare sometimes :) This is such a bargain and it sounds really good, I've always liked the Nivea skincare bits I've tried before and I love the smell of them :D
    Have a fantastic time tonight, can't wait to see all of the tweets and posts about it!
    Love Holly xx

  2. I've never seen this before, seems like a good idea for after a night on when the last thing you want to do is do a full cleansing routine haha! Would be a good travel option too! xx

  3. I'm so terrible in the morning and this sounds like an absolute miracle for when i'm feeling lazy! My skins going through a terrible patch as well so I might have to give this a try before I go out and buy a load of expensive creams I'll never really use!

  4. I need this in my life! My morning and evening skincare routines are so tediously long that on days when I can't be bothered I just leave it all out, I'd love to have a little one-step thing for days when I really haven't the time

  5. This sounds really good for rushed evenings or mornings. Worth a go x

  6. Thank you for this recommendation, I actually picked it up yesterday and loved using it last night to take my make-up off!
