My Grandmother was known for her radiant skin... her secret? Nivea Skin Creme! She was a faithful user and it showed. I love buying Nivea now, not only does it work amazingly well, but it also makes me think of my dear grandmother. I have very dry skin, and am always looking for something which will work well to hydrate my skin. Nivea Skin Creme is one of those products which never lets me down. It moisturizes my skin and the hydration lasts longer than most other products I have used. I love the soft scent, the rich texture of the creme, and the container it comes in. My only complaint is the somewhat greasy residue it leave on my skin while it is soaking in... This makes it a tough creme to use on my hands during the day, unless I have some time to sit down and relax which it is working its magic. It is an excellent nighttime hand creme and also is magical when used on rough, dry feet. I love Nivea!

mainly use it on my hands.  They become so dry, especially in the winter, that they can be painful.  Other lotions feel fine for a few minutes, but Nivea Creme keeps my hands comfortable for hours.  Generally a dab in the morning and then again in the evening is enough to keep my hands hydrated.

Best creme ever! Smooths away blemishes. Hydrates dry skin. Great from head to toe use. Very safe. Best creme ever! Smooths away blemishes. Hydrates dry skin. Great from head to toe use.

ve been an avid user of creme de la mer for the last 5 years and absolutely love it as I've very dry sensitive skin and no moisturizer up until finding la mer would soothe and keep my skin moisturised all day. I even got my mum onto la mer and now she is a fanatic about it like me! I ran out of my la mer a few days ago and as I have to travel an hour to the nearest store that sells it and my car was in the garage I panicked and was going to buy a pot of celestial from Lush which is an Ok cream for sensitive skin

    Comments about NIVEA Creme:

    This Creme is amazing. It's thick, yet not heavy. It's moisturizing, yet not greasy. It's pleasant smelling but not overbearing. This is my go-to cream and I have a very large selection to choose from (I have at least two dozen kinds of lotion and cream). This is always the one I use after my shower and during my nightly routine. I think the only downside is that i can't bring it with me comfortably in my purse. They have mini tins for travel but since it just slides on, I didn't feel comfortable putting it in my purse. It's a very small con considering all of the pros. I love this stuff.

      Comments about NIVEA Creme:

      I have been using Nivea Creme for years. This is the only creme that actually works on my skin. Especially my face. I have super sensitive skin and during the winter months the cold is brutal on my face. This is a lifesaver. Total godsend. It goes on smooth as silk and makes an instant difference. It penetrates deep down and heals dry and cracked skin overnight. I apply before my makeup as well. And it helps keep my foundation smooth as well. I am utterly in love with this product. I totally recommend this to anyone who has skin issues...even eczema. It's super hydrating and I love it's non greasy Formula. It literally last all day long. I m a huge fan.

        Comments about NIVEA Creme:

        I purchased this product at a local drug store mainly because I I loved the size. I work in a nursing facility , and wash my hands MULTIPLE times a day. The size is convenient for keeping in my scrub pocket and for quick use In between care. While I the size was a plus in my eyes , the actual product was not. The creme isn't very thick , which is no problem for me Also, I would not advise using this product as a face moisturizer, mainly because it is so greasy. Other than that, this is a thumbs up product!
        Some Notes:
        -This is a creamy white moisturizer.
        -It's on the thicker side (which is why I think it's more of a cream).
        -As mentioned, it's rather greasy.
        -The best way to describe the smell is "clean". It's not overly fruity or flowery, but it is rather strong.

          This is a product that has stood the test of time very well and with good reason, it is amazing stuff! My only complaint is that this feels heavy on your skin, like it doesn't fully absorb, BUT, it is great for VERY dry skin and when applied at bedtime, I find it to heal even some of my worst dry skin. I definitely recommend this product, it is thick and creamy and wonderful to use!

          Comments about NIVEA Creme:

          So I have the worst skin ever!!! Super dry and acne prone. I've tried many face creams but never seem to find the right one for me but I do find myself going back to this one..NIVEA! I love the smell it comforts me in a way because I started using it at a young age and always brings me back to those days. Well anyways, my mom introduced me to Nivea before I was a teen, back then I remember it being really greasy and didn't like it much but it seems like they have improved he formula or something because it's not as greasy as I remember but still has that great smell. Since I've gone back to it (because nothing else worked) my skin hasn't been as flakey and rough. I feel like it has improved my skin and made it even softer. My husband even started using it especially on his elbows. I had to buy him his own tub of Nivea because he was using mine up. I get extremely dry and flakey on my chin and nose, I'm pretty sure it might be eczema, I just put the Nivea cream right on those patches and it smoothed it right up! It last through out the day but my skin seems to absorb it right up and I get dry again. Overall I think this cream is great, makes feel more hydrated and it noticeably improved my skin.
