Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion £5.10
This moisturiser has fast become part of my everyday routine. I have dry skin, and need to moisturise after every shower, or else my skin feels tight and itchy. This product claims to "firm, tighten and smooth skin" and it lives up to those claims pretty well. My skin feels intensely moisturised after use, but not tacky, which is great because it means I can use it in the mornings. After a few weeks my skin feels smoother and firmer, and even if I skip moisturising for a day, my skin doesn't feel as dry as it used to. This product also comes in a rich version, which I will definitely be snapping up for the colder months.

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Oil £6.96
This oil is my favourite product from the Q10 range. It smells amazing, and it doesn't spill out from the bottle which is usually my biggest problem with oils. It doesn't leave skin too greasy; I like to apply this before bed and I can put my pyjamas on within five minutes without them sticking to my skin. It's super moisturising and great for dry skin. The bottle says "suitable for massaging stretchmarks" but doesn't claim to reduce the appearance of them, so I wouldn't use this as a Bio Oil replacement. I think the key features of this product are its moisturising properties, the fact that the bottle lasts ages and the great price.

Nivea Q10 Plus Goodbye Cellulite Gel Cream £10.89
This gel claims to "boost circulation in problem areas and hydrate your skin" and "visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite after 4 weeks regular usage." I've been using this for a few weeks now on my thighs, bum and hips, and haven't noticed any difference in the firmness or appearance of my skin or cellulite. The gel smells lovely and is easy to apply. It initially feels a little sticky, and takes a few minutes to sink in, but leaves my skin feeling moisturised and soft. When finding the link for this product I realised it costs over a tenner in Boots, and I don't personally feel the product is worth that much. I think I bought it on offer and it cost me around £7 which I still feel is a little overpriced. Whilst I reccomend the Q10 Plus lotion and oil, I would say that this product doesn't add anything to my routine. Perhaps combined with regular dry body brushing and plenty of exercise and water, this product could make a difference to the appearance of cellulite, but I've been pretty lazy with my diet and fitness routine recently, which probably hasn't made it a fair test. After all, there are no miracle products to completely 'get rid' of cellulite - somebody invent those please.

Has anyone else tried anything from this range? What did you think?
