luxurious night oil
Q 10 Power Anti- Age Multi Action Pampering Oil for 60+ Skin is in my opinion is a wonderful product. Made in Germany this oil contains natural Q10 and 100% pure organic argan oil.. It comes in a well informed and pictured presentation box which tells you various ways to use this oil. For instance if you have very dry skin it recommends you mix one drop with the complementing day or night cream. There is also a lot of very interesting information on the box. M y skin was a little bit dry so I used the oil from the dropper [supplied with the bottle] every night Once again a little goes a long way so use sparingly. The oil glides on easily.I cup my left hand and drop the oil into it from the dropper to avoid spillage. My skin is not dry in the morning like it used to be before I USED THIS LOVELY PRODUCT. I highly recommend it.This oil has a very faint pleasant smell almost forgot o mention that
use as directed on the package as there are varying degrees of dryness and none of us are the same. It is also very refreshing used as a mask.
mature skins. i am 72. great o use at night before bed

A nice light oil
I was very pleased to get the invitation to trial this product as I have only used one oil so far that I have really liked - this oil now makes two.
As one who suffered from very oily skin in her youth (into 20's, 30's and 40's) I have always been very wary of using a product featuring oil.
This oil comes in a predominantly white and gold box with blue writing and has detailed information and instructions on it. Inside the oil is presented in a 30ml bottle with an eye dropper style applicator. I was a bit surprised to see the user is encouraged to "massage" into the skin rather than "gently apply".
Once again, I went straight to the list of ingredients only to find the Argan Oil well down the list.
I found I only needed about 4 - 6 drops to be able to completely massage into face and neck. Anything left over was massaged into my hands,
Once again, there was a lot of information given on the pack, but only a small amount on just when and how often to use other than saying to use either on cleansed skin or after your cream.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that although this product is an oil, it did not feel oily or greasy.
Once again, I did not notice any difference to the firmness of my skin nor the wrinkles.
I would suggest letting the oil soak in for a bit before applying any other creams.

Great to use as an allrounder oil
The Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi-Action Pampering Oil for 60+ Skin comes in a little rectangular box and the product itself is a small jar with a dropper that makes it really easy to use. To look at the jar I actually thought it was plastic and it was only after I nearly dropped it that I realised that it was made from glass and I needed to be more careful.
The oil isnt thick and has little to no fragrance. The best thing about it is that you can use it three ways, as per the pack you can use one drop for a bit of a boost to get radiant skin, two drops for deep care and three drops as a mask treatment to smooth skin.
I generally only used one drop, however did find the option of mixing one drop with the Q10 Power 60+ Day or Night Cream to be the best option for me as I didn't need to apply two layers and I liked the way they applied to my skin. This product did a great job to fix the dehyrdation on my skin.
If you dont like oils, use a couple of times a week for a skin boost.
Anyone over 60 who wants to nourish their skin,

Thanks for the chance to trial and review Q10 power anti-age multi-action pampering oil for 60+skin Beautyheaven and thanks to Nivea too
Unfortunately although the package is great very distictive and easy to spot on any shelf the bottle itself with the dropper makes it easy to measure and use thats where this review takes a nose dive. Although it has a pleasant smell and feels nice on the hands once I applied it it was like putting on an oily mask(sorry) I followed the instructions and then even used less ages after the power cream but it still just sat there I did persevere but in the end had to wipe off and discontinue use it just made me to uncomfortable.
So sorry but this was a fail for me maybe if someone has very dry skin it would be ideal.
I am still a fan of Nivea's other products but not these
less is more
very dry skin

The Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi Action Pampering Oil for 60 plus Skin is packaged in a pleasant looking box but it does not draw the attention of your eye like some other of their products. I would possibly bypass this on a shelf if I was just glancing. To make it stand out I would give it a different packaging. Woman my age are looking for something that looks classy and expensive and means business!
I haven't enjoyed using this product. I found that it reacted with my skin and I would wake up with red spots. Nothing serious but enough for me to be discouraged from using it. Vanity prevails! I chose to then use the product to hydrate my arms, legs and hands. It felt fine on that part of my skin but I definitely prefer the anti cellular range of products from Nivea. Overall a nice product but not for me.

Once absorbed skin did feel radiant and illuminated
Thank you to Beauty Heaven & Nivea for giving me this opportunity of trialling this oil out.
The oil comes in a heavy white & gold glass 30ml bottle which looks attractive and has an easy eyedropper which makes it easy to apply how many drops you need out of the bottle.
The packaging on the back of the box actually says one drop is to give a Glow Boost for radiant and illuminated skin. Two drops is deep care for healthy nourished looking skin and 3 drops Mask Treatment for immediately relaxed smoother skin.
I am 62 and my skin is dry especially in hot months. I applied the oil on its own but the humidity here in Queensland is so high that the oil would just sit on my skin and took ages to penetrate. It would take me a good 30 mins before I could even apply my primer and make-up. It was great though if I was just staying at home for the day and didn’t wear make-up.
I tried mixing it with the Nivea Day Cream but it still didn’t help. I also applied on top of the Day Cream as suggested on the box. For me though, I think it was just the extreme humidity we are having so I will be able to see how it goes in the cooler months. In saying that though, I will say that my skin certainly looked radiant and glowing after a couple of hours.
The oil is not greasy at all or that oily feel you get with some oils. It just feels very lightweight and the fragrance is very soft and subtle.
At this stage I don’t dislike the product at all but I can’t say that I love it either – I will have to wait for cooler weather.
I do have dry skin on my elbows with the humidity around so I applied some there and it absolutely worked so well there. My elbows are so much softer and I am not left with an oily elbow either. My husband was impressed so he pinched some for his extremely dry elbows.
Made in Germany
Don't use a lot of drops if you have very dry skin. Less is better.
Just be careful as the bottle is easy to knock over so place carefully when using.
If you have dry elbows it works a treat and doesn't leave you will an oily elbow either.
Definitely 60+ to use. Ideal to mix with the Day cream.

Hydrates, nourishes and protects
Thank you Beauty Heaven and Nivea for choosing me to trial the Nivea Q10 60+ Multi-Action Pampering Oil in conjunction with its corresponding Day Cream.
Now in my early 60's, I am all for trialling skin care products which aid to keep my skin looking youthful and healthy :). I realise that the dryness of my skin is age related because my skin has progressed from being very oily (as a teenager) to being normal in the middle years of my life. As I advanced in age, I noticed my skin getting drier to the point that I now need to use heavier and more nourishing day and night creams to combat the dryness.
I love using Nivea's Multi-Action Pampering Oil because it delivers extra care and nourishment for my skin when it needs it. The product is packaged in a reasonably heavy, white glass bottle with a gold screw cap lid which houses a dropper which makes dispensing the oil easy . It is interesting to note that when one looks inside the bottle, there is a plastic guide that ensures that the dropper is guided to the very centre of the bottle all the way down it. This may have been necessary due to the long length of the dropper and to prevent it from wobbling about where it is attached to the rubber bulb.
The facial oil is a clear, colourless liquid containing natural Q10 and Organic Argan Oil. It has a mild fragrance similar to that of the Nivea Q10 Power Day Cream SPF15. Application is by applying a specific amount of drops into the palm of the hand and gently massaging it onto the face and neck.
I like the flexibility of this product as it can be applied directly on a cleansed face or after the day or night cream. Depending on the skin's needs, 1 drop will give the skin a “glow boost, 2 drops will result in healthy , nourished looking skin and 3 drops can be used a mask treatment for “immediately relaxed and smoother skin”.
My most preferred way is to use 2 drops of the multi-action pampering oil after either my day or night cream and occasionally on its own as a mask treatment at night on cleansed skin.
This product significantly boosts the hydration levels of the skin when used in conjunction with a moisturiser. It instantly nourishes my skin and imparts a healthy, youthful looking glow. My skin looks very dewy, and feels very soft and smooth to touch. The product absorbs into my skin and works in conjunction with the moisturiser to totally eliminate any skin dryness throughout the day or night. It does not leave my face with an excessive greasy residue but makes my skin feel very comfortable.
I find that the Organic Argan Oil contained in the Day Cream and the Multi-Action Pampering Oil make both products excellent at eliminating any signs of dryness. Though being Summer, I can suffice with just the Day Cream accomplishing this without the need for the Multi-Action Pampering Oil so I reserve it just to use as an occasional, indulgent, overnight nourishing mask treatment.
During Winter when my skin is the driest, I see the most need to use Nivea's Multi-Action Pampering Oil being which I would use daily both day and night. My skin will definitely need and appreciate the added boost of nourishment, protection and hydration that this product provides. I am content in knowing that by using this product, I'm doing the best to keep my 60+ years skin from aging prematurely from dryness.
It is great to see Nivea producing skin care products intended specifically for women aged 60+. Coming from Nivea I know that my skin is getting the best of care. To date, I have loved and enjoyed using all the products made by Nivea. It is a forgone conclusion that I always will.
As the oil is packaged in a glass bottle, for added stability place the bottle in a short wide bottomed glass during use.
Ideal for giving mature, dry skin an extra boost of moisture and nourishment when used before or added to your day or night cream.

Started using this Nivea Q10 Power Anti-aging Oil for Mature Skin 60+ it is a very rich formula, that is light but I have found that it stays on my Skin for far too long, simply great for my Night Time Skin Treatment. My skin feels very supple and it certainly does make my skin glow.
Would recommend this Nivea Q10 Power Anti-aging Oil for once or twice a week because of it being so rich and potent.
Use Nivea Q10 Power Anti-aging Oil as much as you feel you need to use this potent Oil that enhances your skin after long term use.

Not just an oil but a pampered boost for mature skin.
The Nivea Q10 Power Anti Age multi action pampering oil is another great product by Nivea. I have been using it with the Nivea Q10 day cream and I feel my skin looks healthy, hydrated and has a glow to it. After my shower in the evenings I apply the oil , it’s not greasy and is soaked up immediately. I’m new to using oils, but I love them, they do not leave a oily feeling or residue or stain, technology has come a long way, the Nivea Q10 oil is lovely to use. I put a few drops on my fingers and massage onto my clean skin, a little goes a long way. The applicator is easy to use, it’s presented in a light weight bottle which makes it easy to take travelling. It contains the same organic Argan oil and Q10 as the day cream, my skin is given an extra boost using the oil, waking up in the morning my skin still feels hydrated, smooth and silky and it’s helping my skin restore some of that ageing process. Yes I really have enjoyed using the oil and will recommend it to my 60+ friends , definitely a great product, get pampered today. Thank you NIvea and Beautyheaven .
A little goes a long way, massage into clean skin. Check that it suit your skin, maybe try it on a small section first.
Definitely for the over 60’s

Highly effective facial oil
I was thrilled to trial the Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi-Action Pampering Oil for 60+ Skin, I used this oil in conjunction with the Q10 day cream and with my usual Night cream (Clarins).
Again we were given the opportunity to trial for several weeks which allowed my skin to really decide how it felt about these products.
The oil was in the classic Nivea packaging and this product was presented in a 30ml dropper bottle which I loved, hygienic and it allows the perfect amount to be dispersed.
The oil had a silky smooth non-greasy texture that is absorbed quickly and leaves a lovely soft sheen on the skin. The scent didn't bother me at all and it dispersed quickly.
The results from the facial oil is WOW! This oil really worked for me it refines pores and gives an excellent moisture boost and used in conjunction with the moisturiser has had visible results. My skin feels wonderful, it looks and feels softer and the texture has definitely improved.
I feel it’s great value as a little goes a very long way. I have also used it on my neck and décolletage and noticed a vast improvement in these areas with the skin clarity and texture.
Although the weather has been hot and sticky here I still felt comfortable using the face oil twice a day as directed with no sensitivity or break outs.
I will repurchase this product again and I also feel it will become a Holy Grail product for me.

A Very Versatile Facial Oil.
I have incredibly sensitive skin that is capable of reacting without an obvious reason. I applied this to my face and immediately sponged it off as it burned my skin. I waited a few days and tried again and had the same result. However, in the meantime I tried it on my legs and it was absolutely wonderful.
I wear support stockings daily and my legs often get quite dry and flaky and I had been having even more difficulty than normal. I tried a small amount on my legs and it felt wonderful. It dried very quickly so that I was able to put my support stockings on and the benefit was amazing. The flakiness improved with one application and continued to improve with subsequent applications.
The oil has a delicate and very pleasant fragrance and is absorbed very, very quickly, leaving no residue or stickiness and the benefit is incredible. Only a small quantity is needed for a beautiful, moisturising effect.
Even though I used the oil for a completely different purpose from what is intended I would recommend it highly as one of the most versatile beauty oils I have used.
Try using this for any area that needs care.
A variety of purposes.

Pampering Oil for Winter
Thank you Beautyheaven for being given the opportunity to trial this pampering oil. I have never used an oil on my face with the concern of it making my skin too oily and clog my pores so was happy to give this a trial. When first opening the packet I was concerned about it being in a glass bottle with the glass dropper. If you drop it in the bathroom it would smash which could easily happen with oily fingers after your application. I applied a few drops of oil on my fingertips and massaged it into my face. At first I followed the instructions from Beautyheaven so I could trial this with the day moisturiser given. I then tried less oil but this also wasn't much success. Trailing this in summer I found it too oily for my skin. I couldn't use the oil and the day moisturiser together on my face. I did trial it on the backs of my hands and elbows and was happy with that. I'm going to put this pampering oil away for winter when I think my skin will need it. I will try it as a night oil after my shower and hour before I go to bed.
It is in a glass bottle so be very careful not to drop it.
Hopefully good in winter when your skin is drier.

After applying Q10 Power Anti-Aging Multi-Action Pampering Oil for 60+Skin combined with Q10 Power Day Cream SPF 15 for Mature Skin to my face I feel it absorbed into my skin well, after using it for three weeks my skin is softer and wrinkles reduced.
I have been using Q10 Power Anti-Aging Multi-Action Pampering Oil for60+ Skin in conjunction with Q10 Power Day Cream SPF15 for Mature Skin for 3 weeks as requested for the trail.
The oil comes in a nice 30 ml heavy weight gold and white glass bottle which is boxed for protection. I found it easy to use, it's light and easily absorbed into my skin. It has a very soft pleasant perfume that wasn't overbearing. The bottle comes with an eyedropper making it easy to measure the recommended amount - 1, 2 or 3 drops depending on the needs of your skin. I started with 3 drops and gently massaged them into my face, after a few day I reduced it to 2 drops then 1 drop which I apply twice a day followed (in the morning) by the Day Cream. I use another 1- 2 drops to massage into my neck and chest area. It doesn't make my skin feel heavy like some other oils have. My skin feels noticeably softer, smoother and my wrinkles have lessened. Definitely a product I will continue to use.
Massage into your skin gently using your fingertips. I also gently tap/pat my skin.
Anyone with dry skin that needs some extra nourishment, not just 60+ skin.

Best Facial Oil I have used so far!
I have found the Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi-Action Pampering Oil for 60+ Skin to be the best Facial Oil I have used so far, in terms of the ease of application, the scent, absorbency and results! Now that I am in the Over 60 age group, I am particularly keen to look after my skin and preserve it as well as possible as I go into my older years, so I am seeking products such as this one by Nivea which I know I can rely on to prevent dehydration and the formation of unwanted wrinkles. Let's face it, I guess there is no such thing as 'wanted wrinkles'! Firstly I love the container it comes in, it is attractive, light to hold and easy to use the dropper to get just the right amount of oil for each application. The oil smells fresh and pleasing, which is important to me, as it adds to the pleasure of my daily skin routine. Like the cream which I have been using over the oil, the oil also has a very nice feel on the skin, not greasy or watery, and is easy to apply to my face as it glides easily across the skin. I found this fantastic Facial Oil absorbed quite quickly into my skin, and leaves my skin radiant, feeling fresh, glowing and tauter also.
Apply after cleansing and I recommend then toning or spraying with a light mist spray, for optimum application and absorption.
People with maturer skin or dry skin issues.

Great night oil for Colder Months
I was fortunate to be on the trial team for Nivea Q10 Power Anti-Age Pampering Oil, for Mature Skin.
The first thing I noticed about this product was the bottle, it is a white and gold solid color, so the light does not through the glass. 5 Stars for this Nivea, great way to protect the oil.
The oil is in a 30ml dropper bottle, and the dropper is long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle, so much easier to get the oil at the bottom of the bottle. The packing looks modern and classy being gold and white.
The ingredients in the oil natural Q10 – skins natural anti-aging defence, Organic Argan – one of my favourite oils, Tocopherol - Vitamin E, just to name a few. These make for an oil that has a lot of slip.
Now to the oil, it is a“Wet Oil”, the packing has 3 drops – mask treatment, 2 drops for deep care, 1 drop for glow boost. so that is how I used it. The first time I used it I applied 3 drops, on my finger tips and massaged it in, wow it felt very heavy, (maybe my skin is not as dry as I thought). I left it on for about 45 minutes then cleansed it off and applied the Replenishing Day Cream, even though it was night.
My face felt extremely soft and nourished. I found that 2 drops was plenty for my face and neck, theoil goes a long way. I made sure I applied it at least an hour before before bed time, this gives the oil time to penetrate and doesn’t end up on your pillow case.
I am going to pop this one away for use during winter as my skin does get a lot drier during the colder months.
Overall I like the oil, it is nourishing for my skin, affordable and love the packaging
A great night oil for use in the colder months.

I was very pleased to through Beautyheaven be given the opportunity to review the Nivea 60+ products, both of which have promoted excellent results.
The Q10 Power Anti Age Multi Action Pampering Oil is excellent when used in conjunction with the Cream. The Co Enzyme Q10 which the oil contains is naturally occuring in our skin giving protection and fighting aging.
Again, this Nivea product comes in a well branded box but inside is a 30ml dropper bottle attractively presented with a gold band.
The clear almost odourless oil contained in the bottle is very light.
This can be applied by massaging in on a cleansed face and neck or, as I used it, after applying the rich cream.
I put about 4 drops on my palm and applied it from there lightly with my fingertips.
The oil didn't sit, soaked quickly in and seemed to give my face a brighter and more alive look. As always avoid the eye area and enjoy the pampering feel!
This product is made in Germany and I notice the cream is made in Poland.
A very economical and lovely oil especially designed for mature skins.
Apply with fingertips for gentle coverage.

Upon receiving this lovely serum I wasn’t sure what to expect. The presentation was simple but beautiful and clear as to what was inside. The smell of the serum is very light as is the colour of the serum. There is a bottle with a stopper to use the serum drop by drop.the texture is very smooth and pleasant to use. Even after a few days of morning and night use I did start to see some improvement in the texture of my skin. I was rather generous and started to use the serum on my neck and chest which showed a vast improvement after only two weeks. My chest was very sun damaged and parched and nothing seemed to improve it until this wonderful serum was applied for a couple of weeks. I will most certainly be buying this product and others in the range with confidence that they will do good.

For many years I have. Been sceptical. About. The hype created by anti aging products. Well I have been converted. I was given the opportunity to trial the Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi-Action Pampering Oil for 60+ Skin. My dry aging skin has improved. In look and feel. It is softer and supple my Poor's on my nose have been refined. And the wrinkles have become less prominent. i Have been using it now for just over 3weeks. And. Over that time I have noticed the improvement. Starting. In the morning. I cleanse and tone then. Put. A few drops of the pampering oil in my palm. Then dab it on the face. And neck. Spread it over the face. And neck area. I repeated the same. In the evening. As well. The thing I like most about this oil is it is light. And has a lovely aroma. And it absorbs into the skin real Well
Make sure you cleanse. First. It helps. Get all the days detritus of the skin. And make up. Tone morning and night. Just dab it about on the skin. And spread. Over. The face with the finger tips
This works well with Q10 Power Day Cream SPF15 for Mature Skin
This product has been designed for . 60+ skin. And can be used night and day.

Soft, moisturised skin
Thank you very much to Nivea and Beauty Heaven for the opportunity to trial the Q10 Power Anti-Age Multi-Action Pampering Oil for Mature Skin. My face has certainly etched upon it the journeys of my 63 years (i.e. wrinkles and sun spots) and becomes very dry in winter, so I was thrilled to try this in conjunction with the day cream.
The oil is presented in a classy blue, yellow, gold and white box which would not go astray on a high end cosmetic counter. The bottle itself is also very solid and good looking. It comes with a dropper that fits precisely into the bottle, indicating that a lot of thought went into the packaging, which appears to be fully recyclable. The bottle is heavy quality and could be broken if accidentally dropped. This was my one fear given that my paws become quite slippery when dealing with oils and creams. I also found the dropper to be a bit large for the job. I only wanted small amounts to come out, and found it hard to depress the bulb gently enough. In addition, I had to hold the dropper upside down while applying each drop to my skin, otherwise the oil would leak out. Although the contents are a generous 30 ml, I’m getting through it faster than necessary.
The ingredients of the pampering oil include milk thistle seed oil and argan kernel oil which are both good moisturizers and antioxidants. It also includes Q10 (ubiquinone) which is a co-enzyme that exists in every skin cell and depletes with age. There are other chemicals that I’m not familiar with, so it is not a “natural” product. The oil itself is an almost clear, yellowy colour. I found the first few drops a bit watery, but after that it became thicker. Probably I should have shaken it first. The scent was mild and sweet, and the oil itself did not leave a scent trail on my skin.
I found the instructions about how to use this with the cream a bit confusing. The instructions sent by Beauty Heaven said to use the oil before applying the cream. The instructions on the box said, “Can be applied directly on cleansed face or right after your cream”. It also suggested that for very dry skin a drop of oil can be mixed with the day or night cream and applied that way. I took this to mean you can apply the oil at any stage in the moisturizing process, and decided to apply it under the cream, as per Beauty Heaven’s instructions.
I was happy that my skin, which tends to be a bit sensitive, did not react negatively to the oil. The oil was tested in summer, during many muggy, hot days. Our house has no cooling and windows could not be opened because of smoke. In this weather, the oil did, in fact, leave a shiny, sticky residue on the skin. Nor did it help when the sweat started to flow and I had to wipe my face. So the testing did not occur under ideal conditions, and I would have loved to carry out this trial in winter when my skin is extremely dry and immediately eats any oil fed to it.
Despite these limitations, so far the results have been positive. My skin is feeling increasingly soft to touch and looking moisturized. That is all I expect an oil to do, so I am happy. The packaging makes claims such as “radiant” and “illuminated” skin, “healthy, nourished looking skin”, “relaxed and smoother” skin. Within reason, these claims were met.
Would I repurchase? Yes, but more for winter and maybe early spring and late autumn. I found the oil uncomfortably heavy for this type of summer.
If you struggle with the dropper, you can decant the oil into a smaller dropper for easier application. Only a small amount needed to cover the face and neck area.
Any dry skin, not just for over 60 year olds. Can also be applied to other parts of the skin that become dry, such as heels and elbows.

Quite a decent quality oil
Thank you BH for the opportunity to trial this product. The oil is rather rich but when used on cleansed and exfoliated skin it soaks in well. The instructions state to use the desired amount, and on my dry skin, I found that 3- 4 drops was sufficient to do my face and neck. Being Summer, I found that the oil by itself was enough to moisturise my skin. I tried the oil with the Q10 Power cream that was also part of the trial but I found the combination to be too greasy. I was pleasantly surprised at how hydrated my skin felt, and it stayed that way all day. I didn't use the oil at night because I've found that oil tends to migrate onto my pillow. After a few uses, I found that my skin looked and felt softer and a little more radiant. However, before I even opened the box, the smell hit me. This oil contains far too much fragrance. Some people don't mind fragrance but for me it's a deal breaker. It's a very strong smell and it lingers a long time after application. I really liked this oil, and if it was available without the fragrance, I would buy it.
The oil could be used on other areas such as hands or particularly dry areas. A little of the oil goes a long way.
