NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Day and Night Creams

Rubybox recently sent me the NIVEA perfect and Radiant Even Tone Day Cream to test and review after 2 weeks of use as it claims to show visible results in just 14 days. I was excited to take on the 2 week challenge as winter was not good to my skin as I would get loads of eczema flare-ups which left my skin with dark marks and an uneven skin tone.

The NIVEA Perfect and Radiant range is super affordable (R79.95 for the NIVEA Perfect and Radiant night cream 50 ml) that I went out and got myself the night cream to get optimal results. I have been trying out the NIVEA Perfect and Radiant day and night cream for 2 weeks now in the hopes of perfect and even tone skin.

Challenge Accepted!!


NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Even Tone Day Cream

The even tone day cream is suitable for normal and combination skin I definitely have combination skin as my skin can go from dry to oily in just a few hours.

The NIVEA Perfect and Radiant day cream claims to restore even skin tone for a radiant complexion by reducing the appearance of dark marks and spots and by improving the skin tone and complexion so that skin looks and feels soft, smooth, even and radiant.


Before getting into more detail on how the cream works and what it has done for my skin we first need to understand how uneven skin tone is caused. Skin impurities and sun exposure is the main cause of dark marks, spots and pigmentation which leaves one’s skin looking dull and uneven. That is why it is always best to apply on a good sunscreen with a high SPF daily. The NIVEA Perfect and Radiant day cream contains extra special care and sun protection (SPF 15) which is needed to restore and protect the skin’s even tone and natural radiance.

How does it work? NIVEA Perfect and Radiant day cream is enriched with Eventone Pure Active, Vitamin E and SPF 15, these ingredients works to gradually enhance the skin’s complexion and visibly reduce the appearance of dark marks while protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. SPF 15 + UVA filters protect your skin against dark marks and helps reduce premature skin ageing. The non-greasy, silky, smooth formula is easily absorbed while providing your skin with lasting moisture leaving it feeling soft and smooth. The formula works in harmony with your skin to even out the skin tone and improve complexion.


Both the day and night cream come in a 50 ml plastic tub. The day cream comes in a white, blue and pink box and the tub is white with pink trimmings along the lid which pops and looks cute.


The cream itself has a soft pleasant scent and it has a silky soft light texture. It is best to apply it on cleansed skin every morning. Only a small amount of the cream is needed as it spreads easily. The cream is fast absorbing and has an instant matte finish, even though it has a matte finish it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated throughout the day it does not dry out my skin. I’m loving the matte effect as my skin stays matte throughout the day and it is the perfect base to apply on foundation.


NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Facial Night Cream

When it comes to skincare products I like to use the entire range starting from wash to the night cream so that I can always get the best results that the particular range offers. I have been using the night cream together with the day cream and the new perfect and radiant micellar cleansing wipes for 2 weeks now.

The facial night cream regenerates the skin and restores even skin tone while you sleep. It contains Eventone Pure Active and Pro Vitamin B5 which works during the night to gradually enhance skin complexion and restore its natural, even tone and radiance while visibly reducing the appearance of dark marks.


The night cream works to increase cell renewal and regenerate the skin, skin tone is brighter and more radiant, dark marks are reduced, it provides skin with lasting nourishment and moisture leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.

How does it work? The caring formula with Eventone Pure Active and Pro Vitamin B5 is specially developed to support the renewal of your skin during the night and brighten the skin tone. The formula works in harmony with your own skin to even out the skin tone and improve complexion. The nourishing formula provides your skin with lasting moisture, leaving it soft and smooth.


The NIVEA Perfect and Radiant facial night cream comes in a dark blue, white and pink box containing a 50 ml dark blue tub with pink trimming along the lid just like the day cream.


The cream itself has a soft pleasant scent and the same silky soft light texture as the day cream. It is best to apply the night cream on cleansed skin in the evening. A pea size is needed for the entire face and neck as it is thin in texture allowing it to spread quite easily.

The cream is quickly absorbed into the skin, the night cream is much more richer and nourishing than the day cream. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth even when I wake up.


My skin definitely looks more radiant and healthier from using these products. Below is a side-by-side before picture and picture taken after 2 weeks of using the NIVEA Perfect and Radiant products.


The dark marks around the mouth area have lightened, my skin looks radiant and more even toned. I feel confident now to walk out the house without applying on any foundation. After seeing the results i’m dying to get my hands on the newer additions to the Perfect and Radiant range.


I definitely recommend these products to anyone who battles with dark marks and uneven skin tone the results speak for itself.

    1. Hi Margie, so sorry for the late response. I also struggle with oily skin, when looking for skincare products always look for something which offers hydration and contains Hyaluronic Acid. Oily skin means that our skin is not getting enough hydration so it produces oil to make up for that. Right now I’m using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range and find that it’s working for me. I hope this helps please let me know if you any more questions 🙂

    1. Hi Langelihle, sorry for the late response. Nivea Perfect and Radiant is suited for dark spots as it evens out the skin tone. You can use the entire range they have a Perfect and Radiant Face Wash, Micellar Water and Serum. There is also a Perfect and Radiant Sensitive range. I also have very sensitive skin and the normal range does not irritate my skin but to be on the safe side I suggest that you try the sensitive range.
