I bought the solid moisturizer version of this product and I must say it has become somewhat of a skincare staple for me. The tin packaging it comes in is extremely adorable not to mention handbag suitable and easy to slip into even the smallest of purses. They come in two sizes, one smaller version and the larger one. I find that the smaller one does well enough as the moisturizer is so thick that one hardly needs to apply more than a pea sized amount.
Like many others I at first found this creme like substance to be a bit thick and greasy ( I use it on my face ) but i've found that using it after a shower on damp skin works best as it absorbs quicker into the skin and you won't end up overdoing it. I live in England near Wales and the weather here is usually extremely cold and dry and therefore something a little heavier such as this really comes in handy. My skin feels soft and extremely smooth and i'd defintely be buying myself another tin once this one runs out.
The best skincare products I have ever used have been Nivea. No need to say more.
This cream is a skincare HG staple for me. Initially I was hesitant to buy it but the reviews swayed me. For some reason my skin has become incredibly dry over the past year. It flakes and peels between my eyebrows and on my cheeks and some areas get rough like sandpaper. Previously I would use Dermalogica Active Moist in the summer and Intensive Moisturizing Cream in the winter but it wasn't enough, even the intensive. I was desperate to try anything and on the word of MUA reviews I headed to Walgreens and picked up a tin for $.99. I use a very small dab on my forehead and on each check and smooth it on and it literally sinks right in and my skin looks FABULOUS. I let it sink in for 15 minutes or so before putting on primer/makeup and letting my hair down and I have no problem with it greasing up or getting oily. So far I have been using it since January and it's now April and the warmer weather still is not a problem. The only places I previously got oily were my chin, nose, and upper lip, so I plan to use lighter lotion on those areas and still use the Nivea on my cheeks and forehead if oiliness becomes a problem.
I would imagine if you have normal/oily skin this will not work well for you. But if you have dry skin, it's definitely worth a shot at the price. I also enjoy using it on my dry legs, elbows, and feet. Once this tin is used up I plan to buy a larger size!
God, this is classic! Love it love it love it! I don't use this for my face, but a very great moisturizer for my body. This product is perfect for a go-to and as a 1st (beauty) aid. It's not too greasy (I used to have a lotta problem with greasy body cream/lotion), it smells nice, and multi-purpose! You guys should have it! I mean, it's not the best moisturizer in the world, but still, it's a must-have. (Did I mention cheap?)
I bought this after reading all the good reviews.
It is a really good moisturizer, however I cannot use it on my T-zone, it's too greasy for it and it breaks me out a little.
Instead I'm using it as a hand cream and a spot treatment for some of the dry areas on my face and it works pretty well.
Not too sure if I'll purchase again because I actually would prefer Crabtree and Evelyn's Hand Therapy and a hand cream.
oh i love it. its greasy and that is just what i want in a body moisturizer! but the grease fades so its awesome, hydrates really well, really thick, i love it. i bought it after trying other cremes that were penetrating the skin and still leaving a dry feeling. so yeah, i really like it, i got the big size tin can, German version and it has these stars on it its really cute :)
Reference: oily skin/acne prone, some dry skin spots in winter.
Pros: Very hydrating/moisturizing, great for flaky/dry skin. Cheap product($5-7), long lasting.
Cons: very Greasy. Product could do with repackaging concerning bacteria. (small tube would be good. like the clarisonic cleanser sizes.)
Verdict: Would definitely repurchase. I have oily skin and i don't use this all over my face. but its my HG when i have a dry/flaky nose(when your sick) or dry spots in winter. just using a bit everyday/few hrs helps.
I bought this on impulse while checking out at Wal-Mart. It wasn't pricey at all, fairly cheap for the tin size. As soon as I opened it the scent hit me in the face. It sort of reminds me of my aunt's strong perfum she sprays all over the place lol. It feels amazing, like whipped creme or something :D ...but it is pretty greasy. I hate the way it feels after rubbing it in...because it doesn't really absorb :p Kinda yucky actually :/ Bummer because the whipped texture thing :D Overall it's ok if you want something in your purse. I would not recommend this creme for your face if you are prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin (too oily and too much fragrance). Also, the lid to the tin may slide off easily. It all depends if you got lucky with a good lid or not lol. I most likely will not purchase again. I think I'll stick with my Eucerin mini ;)
I thought the tin container was a cute idea but not smart because it has no lock! This is not a 'throw in your bag' kind of container, it WILL pop open. I thought the product itself was below an OKAY. The smell of the product was horrible, it gave me a head ache. Too strong.
I use this all thoughout winter, I tend to get flacky itchy skin that feels tight as soon as I get out the shower. After using this my skin is an even tone baby smooth texture. It does feel a bit greasy but your skin absorbs it quickly! Well mine does only because its thirty for moisture! Lol. I wouldn't recommend using this during summer especially where I live only because its too thick and might make you sweat. I use this all year round on my hands and cuticles. I like the smell of it against just out the shower skin it smells fresh to me:)
