Nivea Grape Seed Soothing Cleansing Oil

Nivea Grape Seed Soothing Cleansing Oil

Nivea came out with a new line of basic skin cleansers - cleansing oil. And since I was running low on my other oil, I wanted to see what they've come up with.

I picked the Grape Seed Oil version which is meant for sensitive skin. Let's see what exactly it is and how it worked out for me.

The oil comes packaged in a lovely violet packaging with a useful pump. With one twist it goes from locked to ready to go!

In one packaging you get 150 ml of product for a bit less than 5€. That's less than I was paying for all my cleansing oils from overseas (mostly Asia). 
But now I'm happy that we have a cleansing oil that comes with a budget price.

This version is perfume-free; hence the sensitive name. 
I use 1-2 pumps to clean my entire face. On the picture above you can see 1 pump of product all over my hand.

It starts very oily, but not too heavy. Like a medium-thick oil. It's runny but less than the Balea cleansing oil and because of that, I need so much less of it. 

It spreads easily and is even easier to wash off. It takes me less than 2 minutes to wash my face with it. I use lukewarm water to wash it off and it's a breeze. It doesn't leave any film behind or any residue. After it's washed off it's like it was never there.

  • washes the whole face gently and thoroughly
  • has a regenerative effect
  • refreshes pleasantly
  • can also be used on sensitive skin

I wear heavy-duty waterproof mascaras. Most oil cleansers have a bit of a problem with getting those off, but luckily it's not like that with the Nivea cleanser. 
I don't have to re-apply it, I just continue with the second cleanser. And to be honest, I could probably stop just with the first step as it doesn't leave any film behind.

+ Is scent-free
+ Budget-friendly (5€)!
+ I only use 1-2 pumps per wash. It will last me a long time!
+ Doesn't leave any film behind
+ Cleanses waterproof mascaras well
+ Great packaging - the pump works well


- it says "transforms oil-to-milk" formula, but I don't get any milky residue while washing it off. Idk what they meant with that. Maybe that it's easy to wash off?


This is a lovely cleansing oil. It's inexpensive, does its job really well and has no scent. It doesn't even have any colour (like added). I am seriously impressed - I mean it gets off my hardcore waterproof mascaras! I thought that maybe there would be a bigger downside - like with the Balea Oil where I needed 6-8 pumps of product to cleanse my entire face. I'd go through those in less than 2 months... But with this Nivea cleansing oil, I see myself using it for the next several months. So YAY for a new budget-friendly cleansing oil in our market!
