Nivea's Express Hydration Primer - Review!

Hello my lovelies! How are you all?
I am aware it has been a while since my last post and I am so sorry! Things have been pretty hectic this month, as I have had lots of overtime at work and then I have just recently spent a week in hospital.

Anyways, for today's post I want to share with all you lovely people my love for this product by Nivea. It's their express hydration primer.
I have been after a primer for a while after finally using up all of my Baby Skin by Maybelline (review here). I simply could not justify £7.99 on a small primer again so I opted for this one by Nivea.

At the moment this product is on offer in Boots for £2.49 which I think is a complete bargain, especially if you are saving your pennies at the moment or are new to using a primer and want an inexpensive one to try. Normally this product would cost £4.99 which is still a really good price!

What I love about this product is that it is in a tub rather then a tube. As I sometimes find that with a tube you cannot always access all of the product which means that I end up cutting the tube open to scrape every last bit to get my moneys worth! 
Am I the only one who does that?! Comment below if you do!
Anyway, with this primer being in a tub it means I can clearly see all of the product and use the amount I want to, as another problem with using a primer in a tube is that I sometime end up squeezing out too much!

The picture above shows what Nivea claims this product does and to be very honest I agree completely. This primer can be used just on its own or underneath make-up. I have to say that my skin has never felt so smooth or soft. It feels as if the product is actually nourishing my face rather than just sitting on top of it.

Overall, I would say that this product is great for people who are getting used to make-up and want a product which will look after your skin as well as providing a good, strong base for your make-up.

Have you tried this product? & What are your thoughts on Nivea as a brand?
