I have immensely dry hands and elbows and since I bought Nivea to keep in my bag, it hydrates and softens without leaving a greasy film over the skin. I initially bought the product because of its purse-friendly size, but now, I will be repurchasing for its effectiveness, very satisfied.
My favorite face cream! I have acne but also dry skin so I need a lot of moisture, and this does it for me - without breaking me out. I do still have some breakouts, but I don't believe this is the cause. I love the scent, the way it feels on the skin and it's really cheap and you get a lot of it! I have tried more expencive moisturizers too, but I always end up coming back to this one :)
There is something nostalgic for me about this product and Nivea as a brand in general. I actually think this product is a cult classic. It just makes me feel good to use this, it moisturizes well, goes on with a fresh feeling and the smell is just associated with security, cleanliness and care for me. Plus this brand comes from my hometown Hamburg, so that is another big plus. I really hope Nivea will last another 100 years, they have just celebrated their anniversary last year...
This product is as good as any $60 Kiehl or $150 Shiseido Bio- Performance cream or the $180 Lancome Night cream I recently purchased.
Previous reviews raved about how good this is & I all agreed to that. I do not (never) break-out from products which should also take into consideration.
However, I will still buy those expensive creams occasionally for psychological reasons. Transferring this cream into those empty jars of fancy cream also make using this cream more "elegant" & "expensive.
I use this lotion on my face as a moisturiser and on my body.
-its fragrance is very, very light and has no dye, usually moisturisers with those two irritate my skin
-effectively hydrates my dry skin on my face, my skin really feels like it drank water and is very plump after using it
-does not break out my acne prone skin
-not greasy, absorbs quickly into the skin
-the texture is nice, it's thick but light at the same time
-i love that it has jojoba oil and vitamin e
- the tub lasts a while
the only thing i have to say negatively about this is the packaging, it can be kind of unhygienic because you have to scoop out the lotion by hand. i know they sell a squeeze tube but it's sort of small. i will continue to by anyway.
Bought this on impulse several months ago, and used it on impulse as well. It's almost unfair; so cheap, so easily available, but works just as well as (much) pricier brands. I feel cheated for buying all the other creams and exotic oils. Some reviewers complain about the smell, I find it inoffensive and easily ignored.
i got two mini samples of this and i usually never use them but because it was a moisturizer and i have very dry skin on my face (mainly on my nose) i thought id give it a go, and i was amazed by my first appliance! i woke up and my skin was so soft and smooth and it hydrates well. it absorbs quick and drys quick. by far the best moisturizer ive ever used so i went on to by 2 tubs, and got them in pretty limited edition tubs too!
Alot people say that if they were stranded on a deseart Island Lucus Paw Paw Ointment would be their number 1# product, no no no this would definiatly be it. In emergency this will help remove makeup, it soothes good if your slightly sunburned, you can not only use on your body but your face. And it smells great as well.
I love this moisturizer. I have acne-prone skin and this moisturizer does wonders for my skin. The Jojoba Oil in the product is an anti-inflammatory so I don't have breakouts, and the Vitamin E is fantastic for acne scars and marks. After a while, this moisturizer made my skin look amazing, Like a million dollars. I have tried so many different moisturizers and none have worked nearly as well as this.
I use this 3 times a day, in the morning, I mix it with some sunscreen and use it as a moisturizer. I use it to remove my makeup in the evening as most makeup removers irritate my skin, especially me eyes. This does not. I then use it after washing my face before bed, and my skin looks fantastic.
I have the one in the tube and the tub. I tend to gravitate toward the tube as it is more hygenic but the tub is great for the body. I think the packaging on both the tube and tub is really cute.
The scent is very clean and fresh. And this is the best moisturizer, I prefer to all high-end products I've tried. Fantastic price too!
I really think I will use this moisturizer for the rest of my life, it's that good. It will always be in my skincare collection.
This is the best FACIAL moisturizer for my acne prone skin. I have been an acne sufferer for over ten years.
I decided one evening to try this on my face as well as body, the next morning was the first morning I was without new small bumps and excessive oil.
I would suggest this as a facial moisturizer to anyone with acne. It absorbs very quickly and feels very firming. It is so light my acne medication works well when applied on top of this cream. Incredible.
