It’s no secret that the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant range is one of my favourite ranges created by the brand to date. It is simple, effective and it does exactly what it has claimed to do all these years. 

The NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Range was introduced in SA in 2015 to help women with dark skin reduce the appearance of dark marks and even skin tone. I have experienced all these claims firsthand as I’ve tried the Perfect & Radiant range and every new development since it’s initial release.

In 2017, we saw the Perfect & Radiant range introduce their first Micellar technology products with Micellar Cleansing Water & Micellar Cleansing Wipes. Fast forward to a year later, we’re introduced to the NEW Power Couple: the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Overnight Serum & the Extra Protection Day Cream SPF 30. 

The NIVEA Perfect & Radiant promise still stays – to effectively reduce dark marks and even skin tone. With these new additions, what does that mean? Convenient cleansing, Radiant skin by day and restored skin by night is where we’re headed. 


Cleansing is the foundation of a good skincare regime. Most cleansers, much like the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant 3-in-1 Mattifying Cleanser contain active ingredients that dissolve oils and removes impurities — leaving the skin soft, smooth, radiant and able to absorb skincare products. 

When I look for a cleanser I look for something that is gentle, able to strip out all the dirt from my skin, multi-purposeful and affordable. That is why the 3-in-1 Mattifying Cleanser is the perfect cleanser for me; I can use it as a face wash, a scrub or a mask, it is gentle enough for everyday use, it effectively exfoliates and removes dead skin cells – truly #myPerfectFit

I am a true believer in deep cleansing and exfoliating, however, I have my lazy days. On those days I just want a quick and easy cleansing solution — this is when I opt for my Perfect & Radiant Micellar Water and Micellar Wipes to simplify my routine. Just a few drops of Micellar Water on a cotton pad to remove that stubborn waterproof mascara without having to rub it in, while offering a moisturising effect & Micellar Wipes to trap dirt and makeup, allows my skin to be deeply cleansed while leaving it feeling refreshed — it is as simple as that.

I’m only a few steps away from achieving radiant skin.


A radiant & even skin tone is by far the most sought-after beauty asset women wish for their skin. Many of us, including myself, battle with (amongst other skin concerns) uneven skin tone. We are constantly looking for ways and products that will help reduce unevenness.

But what causes dark spots & uneven skin tone? The harsh UV Rays from the sun, free radicals, daily habits and hormones are the common causes. It is the sun that causes true havoc on our skin. Exposure to the sun is a major factor in worsening uneven skin tone, this is why any beauty expert or enthusiast will emphasise the importance for SPF (Sun Protection Factor) in your day cream. My go-to product has always been the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Day Cream with SPF 15, however, the SPF was never enough, this is why I found the new addition to the Perfect & Radiant range so exciting.

NIVEA introduced the Perfect & Radiant Extra Protection Day Cream with SPF30. Enriched with Even Tone Pure Active and SPF 30, the day cream is meant to gradually enhance the skin complexion and visibly reduce the appearance of dark marks while protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. 

True to what the range has promised this, this is exactly what I experienced once I switched from SPF 15 to this SPF 30 day cream; my skin feels more protected, even on those days when I accidentally step outside without putting sunscreen, my skin feels extremely soft, it looks healthier and more even – I call it the GLOW UP.


A good night’s rest is not only important but crucial for our well-being, it also plays an integral part when it comes to our skin and ensuring that you reap the full benefits of overnight skincare. While we sleep our skin heals and repairs; this is the main reason why we use products such as night creams & overnight serums that are full of renewing and regenerative ingredients, to help aid the function of repairing.

I started taking advantage of the overnight skincare benefits using the new NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Overnight Serum – the first Overnight Serum from NIVEA, which was specially created to reduce the appearance of dark marks and improve your skin tone while you sleep. 

I’ve been applying a small amount of the serum every evening on a cleansed face & neck for the past 4 weeks now, and my skin is noticeably looking a lot more even and it feels as soft as a baby’s bottom, especially after application. You really do wake up to a whole new glow – I DID!

The NIVEA Perfect & Radiant range, created specifically for darker skin tones, keeps getting better and better. And with just two weeks of regular use, you’re rewarded with beautiful, healthy and radiant skin looking skin – I can attest to that.

    You defos love the Perfect & Radiant range. First heard it from you years back when it came out and then I got the 3in1 as you raved about it. After the Micellar range post, I got the Micellar water which is like my favourite thing ever. Now I’m defos going to get the Night serum!

    Thank You Mpho!! I love that you always review NIVEA stuff, because they’re so resonable in price and you give enough info to help make a decision.

      Hi Lebohang!
      I’m so so glad you enjoy the range! It truly is my favourite 🙂
      If you love the range as much as me, I think you will enjoy the Overnight Serum!

    I’ve been using the nivea perfect and radiant scrub together with the night serum. It’s been 4 weeks using the products and the results are amazing but the day creams aren’t a perfect match for my oily skin. I haven’t tried the overnight serum though, can’t wait to try it.

    Hi there
    I’ve got acne marks and I’m wondering if this range would work for me. Do you think it would?

    • Mpho Ntlatleng says:

      Hi Lesego,

      It helped me with some one the spots that I has but did not remove all them entirely. It is worth a shot to see how it would react on your skin.
