We receive lots of questions from SWIISH readers asking about what we do and use to keep our skin fresh, smooth and glowing.  Well, the truth is, we’ve got some pretty good products up our sleeves. We’re always trying and testing the latest product innovations and figuring out which ones are best for our skin, and best for our budget. Then when we find a winner that speaks true to its claims, we’re quick to share the good news here.


Recently, it’s the NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls that’s been put to the test. NIVEA has always been one of our go-to beauty brands, mainly because they’ve got such a great rep when it comes to innovative skincare.  They’re a brand who’s actually responsible for a number of first ever skincare breakthroughs – from launching the world’s first ever stable moisturising cream, to its 1998 discovery that Coenzyme Q10 had cosmetic use as an anti-wrinkle product. In other words, they’ve got a pretty good track record and you can’t help but trust that their new product is going to be an equal game changer. 

The reason we found NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls product particularly intriguing was because of its unique formula - for the first time ever, NIVEA has actually managed to utilise the skin’s own anti-wrinkle defense system, Coenzyme Q10, and pop it inside a protective pearl.

OK… so what is this all important Coenzyme Q10? To put it simply, it’s found naturally in our skin and is vital for energy production, as it helps to protect skin from free radicals. Unfortunately though, the level of Q10 in our skin decreases with age (hence the wrinkles!).

Now, there are many products out there that offer a quick ‘fix’ to this problem, using exfoliators or moisturisers to temporarily smooth the skin and make it ‘appear’ younger.  But, the problem here is this doesn’t actually solve the issue of replacing the lost Q10.

On the other hand, NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls is the first ever product to actually treat the problem by actually putting the highest concentration of Q10 back into your skin  – a real innovative breakthrough as there isn’t another product on the market that can do this

On top of this, the formula also contains Hyaluronic acid - a known ingredient which helps to keep the skin looking plump and wrinkle free - and Creatine - which acts as an energy booster within the skin and helps to repair damaged cells.     

So you can see why we’re pretty excited. If ever there’s a way to help us look younger (and less tired!), we are in!

Using NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls (once in the morning and once at night) for a few weeks made a noticeable difference – my skin felt much softer, and I could see that the wrinkles around my eyes had reduced. Happy days!

The other thing we love about this fab product is the price point. We're all about bang for buck, and NIVEA’s replenishing pearls definitely hit the mark at under $30 a pop.

Try the NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls for yourself. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be hooked!
