Blackheads and occasional pimples are my facial struggles and I’m always at war with them but nothing compares to my uneven skin tone. This was the one thing I had given up on until I was introduced to NIVEA Perfect & Radiant.

According to NIVEA it only takes 2 weeks to see the results and the idea simple as it sounded had me excited but for some reason I couldn’t commit to the products for two whole weeks let alone forever.  After receiving the whole range from NIVEA, determined and optimistic this time around, I did everything according to the book and used all the products provided for 2 weeks. The results were definite & unmissable; my even skin tone was restored and my skin had never looked more radiant.

For the 2 weeks; I used the 3-in-1 Mattifying Cleanser for normal to oily skin which I love because it’s a combined product (wash, scrub and mask), I rotated between the wash every morning, scrubbing every 3 days and made sure I experienced the spa like mask treatment at least once a week. This was then followed by the Facial Day Cream which makes my skin super soft & smooth during the day time, with an SPF 15 I was always sure that my skin was protected, the Facial Night Cream which works during the night provided the needed nourishment to balance skin complexion.

Cleanses, regenerates, purifies & mattifies the skin to reveal your most radiant even skin yet. These words are music to my ears and the solution to my problem. I will definitely be sticking to these products.


Be sure to try the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant range and tell me how your 2 weeks goes, I’d love to hear about it 😉

    Hi Mpho.
    I used these products for 2 weeks and you’re absolutely right! They’re definitely working. My favorite is the 3in1

    • mphoxx says:

      Hey Wendy, I’m so glad you’re happy with the results! My favorite is the 3in1 as well, I use it every day.

  4. Nellie M says:

    I’ve been using the the 3in1 and day & night creams for over a week now after I saw this post but I’m not seeing improvement.

    I struggle with blackheads & whiteheads, they are still here. Is it maybe the way I use the products? I really want good results, like you got!

    • mphoxx says:

      Hi Nellie,
      I was also panicking and anxious for results during the first week, but it’s a process. Finish off your 2 weeks and see how that goes, you will feel and look more radiant.
      With the 3in1, Make sure you wash everyday, srub atleast 3 times a week and mask once a week.

    I bought this product with the day cream. I can’t wait to see the results. I washed my face the moment I got home, my face feels really smooth.

  7. Mpho says:

    I’m obsessed with these, especially the 3 in 1 cleanser and the night cream magic !

  8. viggie says:

    Which ones do you think are the first 3 between all the 5 products must I get if I don’t afford all at the same time?

    • mphoxx says:

      Start by getting the 3in1 Mattifying Cleanser (normal to oily skin), the day cream and the night cream. It’s the perfect combination and it’s very affordable!

      Let me know how it goes!

  9. Thuu says:

    Hi. I’ve tried everything under the sun for the uneven skin tone including that perfect radiance. However I’d like to know if the 3:1 is good for dry combination skin? I would like to try a mask/scrub maybe that will help remove the dead skin. Im currently on Eucerin even bright and not seeing results.

    • mphoxx says:

      You should try the NIVEA Daily Essentials Dry & Sensitive range. I recently switched to Daily essentials and it’s magical.

      With regards to the 3in1, it is not recommended for dry skin. It will leave your skin feeling even more dry so I would not recommend it for you.
      Alternatively try the Daily Essentials Skin Refining Scrub.

      Eucerin Even Brighter helps with hyperpigmentation skin issues and takes up to 2-4 weeks for you to start seeing results, so fully commit to that process.

      You’re more than welcome to send me an email if you have any trouble/ questions and I’ll talk you through it.

  10. Karabo says:

    Wow, Mphoxx can I just say I’m a huge fan of yours lol. I’m really eager to try the 3in1 I currently have acne marks pretty bad, but I’m confused on how to tell apart scrubbing from washing? Since the fine beads are always going to be there whether you just want to wash and not scrub.. Because with me personally scrubbing everyday will definitely break me out like crazy since scrubbing opens up pores, please tell me how I can wash and not scrub? I Hope that makes sense.

    • mphoxx says:

      Hi Karabo, thank you very much for the love xx You can definitely try the 3in1. It is very gentle so it won’t cause irritation on your skin.

      With Acne-prone skin, it is very important for you to gently clean your skin.
      Firstly; don’t use any tools or wash cloths to exfoliate/wash your skin, only use your fingers.
      Secondly; don’t scrub your skin or rub the cleanser in with force, this will only cause more irritation. Be gentle!
      Thirdly; when drying off your skin after rinsing, your pat your skin dry with a clean towel very gently. Rubbing your skin will only irritate it.

      It’s all about being gentle with your skin when you wash it. Applying any extra force (scrubbing) will only cause more irritation, so avoid doing it completely.

    Thank you so much! I’ll be on my 2weeks trial very soon :).

  12. Kefilwe says:

    Hi ,this Nivea perfect and radiañt it’s not working for me ,my skin is so irritated or maybe I’m not using the product according ,I have all the range ya Nivea please help

    • mphoxx says:

      Hi Kefilwe.
      If you find that the products are irritating or burning, stop using it immediately. Rather switch to something else depending on your skin issues. I’m currently using NIVEA Daily Essentials, it’s not harsh on my skin – you could try that.

      Using products is super easy, nothing to worry about. Just follow the 3step process (cleanse, tone and moisturize) and read behind the product on how you should use it.

  13. Kefilwe says:

    Hi thank you ,another thing is that I have a very oily skin and a rash on my face ,which daily essential should I use.

    • mphoxx says:

      You can use the Daily Essentials Combination & Oily skin (green packaging) – read my other post on Daily Essentials

      With your rashes, take care of that problem with a doctor/dermatologist. It could be very serious.

  14. Khwezi Madi says:

    Hi there.
    I’ve been using the range for about a week and a half, but I’m not sure if I’m seeing the results I wanted really.

    My skin seems to have smaller pimples on it and my complexion seems to look darker and dull. Not really radiant at all.

    I use the night cream, 3 in 1 mask and the moisturizer for oily skin.

    I’m really at a cross road. Quite defeated and confused.

    Please help.

    • mphoxx says:

      Hi Khwezi.
      Every skin routine or even product is trial and error, what works me you might not work for me and vice versa but we keep at it to find exactly what we need. It is a stressful and tedious process but don’t give up.

      Try mixing and matching the range with other products that you have used before. Eg: I’m currently using the 3in1 and moisturizing with NIVEA Daily Essentials and Sunscreen. It took sometime to eventually find what was right for me.
      I once advised someone to go at it for another 2 weeks with the Perfect & Radiant range, start the process again and they’ve never been happier- you could try that too, start afresh. And if you’re still unhappy, move onto the next thing.

      Keep at it and don’t lose hope!

  15. Matlhatse says:

    You really do look radiant.
    Are you still using these products?

    • mphoxx says:

      Thank you so much.
      I’m still using the 3in1 cleanser, it’s my absolute favorite. Look out for a morning routine post to see what I actually use.

  16. Liza says:

    Hi mpho thanks for sharing also I bought the perfect radiant day cream and night cream, the only thing I kept my ponds face wash and neutrogena scrub that’s why I did not see results yet but I will buy the face wash today of 3in 1 and I think I will see results.

    • mphoxx says:

      Hi Liza, It’s a pleasure.
      For maximum results I would recommend that you use the full range; a face wash (3in1 is my faourite) and day & night cream for the proposed 2 weeks. Thereafter you can start mixing and matching various products that currently work and previously worked 🙂 this is what I’m currently doing and I’ve never been happier!

    Hi mphoo I have a very bad skin with pimples and marks uneven skin tone it terrible yoooh so if I use perfect and radiant will it help I don’t know what to do I’ve tried everything

    • mphoxx says:


      The range really helps with uneven skin tone, it helped me a lot so I would definitely recommend it.
      For your pimples, should they be very worrisome, I would suggest visiting a dermatologist so they can help identify the right skin products for your acne.

    Hi this is my second week using 3 in 1 cleanser and day cream and as well as night cream but my problem is after applying 3 in 1 cleanser i feel some pains like ive just put salt on a sore but it doesnt last long my main problem is pimples i only had dark sport cause by those pimples i get when im about to go to my periods but i ever since i started the products i have more pimples on my face n they very sore im a bit worried should i continue could it be dat it da way that the products cleans my skin?as for the skin tone it working perfectly it only the pimples that worries me now my skin is beautiful but with pimples

    • Mpho Ntlatleng says:

      Hi Kanyisile,
      I wouldn’t advise using a scrub/harsh cleanser when you’re actively breaking out as it’s easy for your skin to feel irritated. It would better to try using something softer and less harsh. Because of your acne, give Benzac AC5 gel a try when washing your face, it helped with the small acne I had on my forehead.

      If you’re still stuggling with acne, don’t be shy to visit a dermatologist 🙂
