I had been using avocado oil and almond oil during the fall/winter as my facial and body moisturizers. When the weather began to change it became too heavy and started clogging my pores causing breakouts on my face and chest. After reading the reviews on MUA I decided to give this a try plus I had purchased a smaller size a few years back when I was out of town and forgotten my normal moisturizer. I think itís a great face and body cream. It soaks in beautifully and moisturizes without being greasy or heavy. I have no ashy bits at all. I love that the scent is fresh but not too strong. I think this will be my spring/summer moisturizer going forward. Plus it's super cheap!
UPDATE: Still think this is a great light moisturizer and scent but as I got to the end of the jar I didn't find it moisturizing enough for my face. I started seeing dry patches. Serves me right for using a body moisturizer on my face. I bought a bottle of grape seed oil when I ran out of this, I may pick up another jar to use occasionally when I want a fresh scent for my body.
Strongly scented, synthetically based moistuizer.
Yes, it is effective - and surprisingly non-greasy, but I would never re-purchase it. For free (I got a one-time sample) it was fine.
Bought as a travel size tube to take on vacation and fell in love. Bought the tub the moment I got home. This is like the original (blue) Nivea's lighter, more refreshing sister. It's very easy to spread, has a lighter, fresh scent and leaves no residue on the skin surface. Sinks right in without being greasy but, like the original, is very moisturizing and leaves skin silky. Love!
UPDATE: I just went through an entire tub in 2 months, and I almost never do that -- this one's a real winner.
This lotion is AMAZING! I have very dry skin, and this makes it so soft. Best lotion!
This sure is no miracle product. It is very moisturizing, but I can't use it on my face. I have dry skin, but this cream leaves it very oily. It also leaves me with pimples on my face, because I have very sensitive skin. This moisturizer doesn't work for me.
I bought this moisturizer because my mum recommended it to me.
(My mum has dry skin)
the following morning after I bought this, I washed my face and all that.
After i took a reasonable amount and applied it to my face but then I realized that it made my skin look very oily.
I disliked it immediately and stopped using it.
After a few days I saw it again and decided that I would try it again.
This time I applied very little and dotted it onto my face then spreaded it.
It didn't makeup my skin look oily this time!
So I suggest if you have dry skin use a reasonable amount and if you have normal skin like me then use very little. Would not recommend to people with oily skin!
Exceptional product. I have more than ten body lotions/ body butters in my bathroom right now- but this is the cheapest of all and the most beloved! That's because:
1. I LOVE the texture- somewhere between a body lotion and a body butter, not runny nor overly thick.Very smooth and soft, glides perfectly.
2. Absorbs quickly and doesn't feel sticky or oily at all.
3. The scent is fine. Nothing much, it isn't not overly perfumed. Just clean and fresh and soothing. Doesn't linger long- it's there to make application even more pleasant but will not clash with any added perfume after a while.
4. The skin feels really hydrated after application.
5. It's now the only hand cream I use, does the job beautifully and doesn't feel oily. My hands aren't dry to begin with though.
6. Can be used on my combination acne prone skin when it feels drier.
7. Packaging is classic and convenient.
6. Very affordable.
There are are no downsides for me here, is there any doubt I would buy again..?
Brought this after reading all the great reviews on MUA.
I use Nivea creme (blue tub) as a facial moisturiser and it is amazing, leaves my skin beautifully nourished and smooth!! :)
I thought it would be a bit heavy for the upcoming summer so decided to give this a try to use as a day cream/ in the summer.
I used it for 3 days and for some reason i now have so much peely dry skin on my face (perhaps this is just the cream working? but i never get this with original nivea, i simply put it on and in th morning my dry patches have gone :))
Also, for some reason when i put this on yesterday it made my face sting :(
Basically, not a very good cream for face, perhaps due to the high fragrance content?
I will stick with my original Nivea creme, which is cooling, soothing, and incredibly smoothing (oooh ryhming! :))
Not being a Nivea fan, I can't believe how wonderful this product is until I put it on my face and my hand. I have an oily, acne prone skin and this cream is right up my alley. It sinks in really quickly and gives my skin a soft and dewy looking without leaving a greasy film. This is definitely best value for money.
