well, I have to say that to my normal skin, which is quite easy to be treated; this product does a great job. However, I will recommend it to ladies who have dry skin or for using in winter only! Because I feel little heavy for the face unless skin is very dry so I tend to use it there only in winter. Besides, to such cheap, yet effective product, I have to check the ingredients and believe me, you will find out why I rate a 3, while saying this product is worth trying
Where Do I begin? This is actually my first review on here. I fell in love with this product so much last night I had to activate my account on here again and tell you ladies (for dry skin) this is just amazing.
I am an x acne sufferer of 11 years. Two years ago my term prescribed me tazorac and a series of chemical peels (biggest mistake ever). In short my skin was a complete mess, it would shed skin at a abnormal rate, I developed some kinda of dermatitis and so forth. I left that doc found a new derm and asked for accutane (miracle worker). Yes ladies it is what you hear it dries out your skin severely for the entire time you're on it and not to mention other areas getting dry. However, I have yet to see one pimple since then.
My skin is forever changed, its dry when it use to be oily and Ive been searching high and low for some kind of moisturizer that would sink in and moisturize all day. I purchased some things by Avene (not so great they just sit on top of your skin) and more cetephil, cerave blah blah blah blah. Then I went to sephora to buy a cream by Korres which I love but its too expenisive at the rate I use my moisutrizer... so I've been on the hunt ever since and last night well.... I found it! I used this last night on top of my ret-a and dear lord i woke up and still had a soft face. Anyone with dry skin must have this in their cabinet!
I love everything about this creme. I use their lip balms and body wash on an every day basis, but I ignored the body lotions and creams. Nivea original cream is a well known good choice, but I noticed this has jojoba oil which is really good for your skin's moisture balance. It smells like a basic lotion, and I actually have grown to love it. This smells really similar to the shea butter lotion, only this is slightly thicker for dry skin. This absorbs and makes your skin so soft. With weekly exfoliation I think this is all you need for the winter. A tub lasts a few weeks. The price is also super cheap for such a good moisturizer. This comes in a small tube too so you can try it before you buy the larger tub or use it for travel/your purse.
I have tried every moisturizer on the market---spent a small fortune on some! This is by far the best one I have ever used! I use it all over my body and even on my face. I have very sensitive skin and some face creams have burned my skin and irritated my eye's.
Nivea Soft really works great. My legs were so dry that they were embarrassing---
I felt like I had alligator skin--now they are soft and smooth. The only thing that I wish they would offer is an unscented cream. It has a much more subtle scent then the original, but I do not like cosmetics with a scent. Love, love love the stuff!
Update: I have moved onto using sweet almond oil for my face and coconut oil for my body (more cost effective than anything). However, I stand by my original review of this product, and will always have a small tube or jar around for emergencies. It is still my mother's preferred product!
I've found my HG face and body moisturizer. This stuff is timeless, and although I bought into the Nivea Creme hype, it isn't as versatile since I can only use it for very dry spots on my body and definitely nowhere near my oily-combo face. That's where Nivea Soft comes into play.
The creme itself is light and fluffy with a very mild scent. It's less overpowering than the original creme. I use this all over my face and body, dabbing a little extra under my eyes. It sinks in beautifully and absorbs in no time at all. I don't suffer from dry skin on my body, and only moisturize when I shave, so the lightness of the creme is not a problem for me. However, it will disappear extremely quickly with daily use if one was to use it for their whole body.
I've suffered no breakouts from this creme, and it doesn't add to my naturally oily t-zone. If anything, I feel it has helped to calm my skin in times of stress. I apply more generously following exfoliation.
The price is very fair considering how little of it I need. It's about $9 CAD for a 200mL jar and will last for 4 months with daily usage. I transfer it to little travel jars as portable hand cremes, and it keeps my hands soft in the harsh Canadian winters. I can't say enough good things about this basic, versatile product - except Nivea does not test on animals! Just another plus.
I love this. It works great for my body and I use it on my face where it gets dry during winter (cheeks and around the eyes). It's pretty light, but moisturizing. It smells good also.
The downside is that it contains a bit of alcohol, which would probably irritate really sensitive skin. I don't have a problem with it, though.
I tried the classic blue tin and it was way too greasy for my combination skin. This one is better: all-purpose moisturizer for both face and body. Still slightly greasy so I use it on my face only on my dry cheeks and only as a night cream. On my body I use it after showers anywhere I have dryness.
What a great surprise, I always saw this cream in the supermarket but never paid attention. I always preferred to invest a little more in skin care, never considered that a product so cheap could do much for my skin.
Luckily I was wrong, after a friend of mine recommend me this cream i thought, why not give it a try...is to so cheap!
I'm glad i did, this moisturize is really good, in texture, smell...and the most important, really works! I was tired of give so much money in body moisturizers and now this is my oficial one, i dont mind like i do with expensive products using alot of this cream because i know i can buy whenever i want and dont spent lots of money to get smooth moisturized skin.
I even tryed on my face (i was concerned because i have oily skin and i thought may be too heavy and give me breakouts) but i was wrong again, i applied before go to sleep and at the other day my face was really soft and moisturized.
Sorry for the long enthusiastic review but i was really surprised with this Nivea product, never thought could be so good for the inexpensive price.
I used to suffer from eczema that would reoccur on a daily basis since a young age and I'd always rely on hydrocortisone cream prescribed to me by my doc to fade any rashes or blemishes, however when I started using Nivea Soft a few years ago it got rid of all my skin irritations. I absolutely love it because it doesn't feel heavy on my skin, like other moisturising lotions and I use it all year round. I don't apply a significant amount during the summer because I find it makes my face quite oily but I still find it the best cream. I find it great for my face and body.
Currently I use this as a night cream and my Origins Vitazing during the day. I'm a huge fan of Nivea products especially this one. I even recommended it to my sister who suffered from dry skin, for almost a year but she never listened to me but last week I noticed a huge difference in her skin and asked what product she started using and she said she got herself the Nivea Soft in the tube! Even she was really surprised with the results! I keep telling friends this is a wonderful product to use but they never believe me until they try it themselves. I think they find it hard to believe because it's such an inexpensive cream! A big thumbs up from me :)
Simply...YES. Excellent product for face and neck and hands. You can moisturize without it ever stinging your eyes. This makes the best under makeup moisturizer I've found yet. Quick to absorb. No perfumey scent here; lightly scented. Prefer this to Neutrogena products which used to be my favorite.
NIVEA Soft is my #1 choice.
