I have really been enjoying this cream, I was looking for a moisturiser that didn't have any silicones and this one seemed like a reasonable choice, that wasn't too expensive.
It has a great gel-cream texture that sinks into the skin and allows for easy make-up application. It keeps the skin hydrated during the day and hasn't so far, caused any breakouts or irritations.
I really like this cream. It feels expensive. It's not too thick- not too thin. I gave it 4 lippies because it doesn't have SPF which is a bummer as i only ever use morning mositruizers with SPF, so i have to use a sunscreen spray before applying,
i would recommend and purchase again. the price is great for what you get!
I have very sensitive and dry skin and I've been using this for almost a month and it's being doing really well.
Leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Been really hapy with it!!
The only problem I had with it was that one day I had a bit of sun burn on my face and when I put it on my face, it stang like mad, because it has parfume and alcohol in it :( that's why it lost one lippy from me
I'm sure this stuff will moisterise very well and cause few irritations - it's Nivea. But I find it odd that something that advertises itself as "Pure and Natural" would choose to smell like a 19th century courtesan's boudoir.
Seriously, I'm not normally bothered by fragrance - I typically stop noticing after a couple of minutes. But this stuff stinks to high heaven! There's a cloud of fragrance all around me! *coughcoughcough*
I've only been using this for a few days, but so far it's working really well for me. It's got a gel-like consistency, which took a bit of getting used to - a dab will do all of your face. Leaves your skin feeling hydrated and smooth without being sticky or coated. Doesn't take more than a couple of minutes to sink in. Smells great, quite light and fresh (very un-Nivea like, a shame as I love the smell of the cream in the blue tub). Hasn't caused any tight patches or break outs. I don't think this would be very good for really dry skin (maybe if it's humid, as opposed to wind etc?) but for my picky, slightly dry combination skin it works well. Dabbing your finger in the glass jar is a bit unhygenic, but most creams are in jars anyway. I got this for £3.20 as an introductory offer, but if it continues to work well I'd repurchase at full price. I love the fact that it works well but is still pretty natural (95%, not too shabby!) and no mineral oils etc. Be warned however, it doesn't do anything dramatic, like add a glow or tighten your skin - it just moisturises, which is what I want from a moisturiser anyway. The fact that it works well without nasty stuff is what really marks it out as a good product.Give it a try!
Edit: After a week or two I noticed an oily texture on my skin and it started to make me break out. I don't know if this is possible but my skin seemed to build a tolerance as it felt dry at the same time, like the cream stopped being absorbed. It's a shame as I loved the idea of it!
