We were eager to tell you about the Nivea Visage beauty item that has been rocking the U.K.--Nivea Visage Anti-wrinkle Q10 Plus Day Care Cream. All our British beauties were saying such kind words about the dynamo cream. It sells for about $23 U.S. dollars there.
And we were looking all over to find it here in the U.S., but were only being offered a Nivea Visage beauty line excluding the British Q10 Plus product. So we were wondering if the U.S. and U.K. Nivea Visages were the same items with different labeling.
Hmmm. We couldn't get a straight answer. But here's the zinger:
If you were having trouble finding the Nivea Visage Q10 Advanced Wrinkle Reducer Cremes in our country, there is a good reason for it. Nivea is discontinuing their Visage line because of poor sales. Here is the email they sent us:
"Thank you for contacting us about Nivea Visage Q10 Advanced Wrinkle Reducer Day Creme. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but this product, and all NIVEA Visage products, are being discontinued in the U.S. It is a difficult decision to discontinue the production of any product, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We currently do not sell our products directly, but the health & beauty aid website www.drugstore.com may still have inventory.

Sam did not tell us in the body of the email, why the Nivea Visage line was being discontinued here in our states, but we made the 1-800 phone call, and spoke to a woman there, who quite tersely, told us poor sales were the reason for the discontinuation. The Nivea Visage line continues to thrive in Great Britain.
So, how do you get your hands on a jar of Nivea Visage Anti-wrinkle Q10 Plus Day Care Cream??? Good question.
Try http://www.britsuperstore.com/. We saw a bunch of Nivea Visage beauty products being offered. But we didn't see the Q10 Plus Day Care Cream. Instead, we saw the Q10 Plus Night Cream. Still, we are sure they could get it for you. And that one was being offered for only about $17.00, if my math is correct.
Hopefully, one of our beautiful British readers will chime in here for their opinions.
Never a dull moment in the high stakes of the beauty business. As model Heidi Klum likes to say:
"One day you are in, and one day, you are out!" Or something like that.
