Nivea Shine Control SPF50 Review

The Nivea sun range from the drugstore is one of my favourite SPF ranges, I have tried a few from them, Q10 SPF, Mousse SPF, Moisture Lock SPF and so far I have loved them

Today’s post is a full review on the Shine Control SPF 50 sunscreen with 0% sticky feeling.

What the brand says:

NIVEA SUN UV Face Shine Control Cream SPF 50 provides immediate and effective sun protection. The light formula offers a long-lasting and instant mattifying effect. The cream absorbs excess oils from your skin’s surface. Your skin will be protected against UVA / UVB induced skin damage and High Energy Visible Light effects such as premature skin aging. Your skin will feel light, non-greasy and non-sticky. The skin compatibility of this sun cream has been dermatologically proven. The product also has an eye-friendly formula and is ophthalmologically proven as well.

Absorbs excess oil from skin surface

Light skin feeling, non-greasy and non-sticky

Ultra Spectrum Protection – protects from UVA / UVB induced skin damage and High Energy Visible Light effects, such as premature skin ageing


Type of sunscreen– chemical

What I liked: the cream textured sunscreen feels light on the skin without a greasy or oily feeling/residue. It takes some rubbing into the skin but the aftermath is good. It provides a semi-matte finish which I surprisingly like (I don’t like matte finishes) but it also leaves my skin glowing and somewhat hydrated. Of course, I love the high sun protection factor with newer and better chemical filters. The formula also has Vitamin E for some antioxidant protection.

It has 0% sticky feeling

Is it invisible on dark skin? YES, 100% invisible on the skin

What I didn’t like: I noticed it works best when you don’t have a lot of moisturiser underneath this. When I use a bit too much moisturiser and layer this on, the Nivea SPF piles like crazy. This didn’t happen often though, only when I would use too much product underneath


Another excellent and affordable sunscreen from Nivea and the drug store. I recommended this to a friend with oily skin so I naturally I had test it out to ensure I recommended a good product!

Highly recommend for oily skin because of the mattifying effect, and it will also work well just layered on serum if you have extremely oily skin. I have normal to combo oily skin and I really like this too.

I love this and I would 100% repurchase


Nivea Shine Control SPF50 is £8 at Boots
