This cream is a very effective moisturizer, and I'm on my 3rd container! I don't use it on my face, as I think it would clog my pores; however, I use it on my heels, elbows, and hands. I find that it is especially helpful for dry, cracked feet (to heal it as well as prevent it), and I always make sure I have a container of this stuff in order to keep the problem under control. I didn't find it excessively greasy- it is greasy when you first put it on, but then it seems to dry off a bit after a few minutes. And I love the scent of it too, which is a scent that is classic to the Nivea products. This product is highly recommended by me!
this cream is thick & greasy & I dont recomend any one unless she
has very dry skin to use it on her face.however this cream has a nice
smell also it is good for anyone to use it on hands, heels or other
dry area on the body as it is very greasy for face. this cream is
also classic as many people have been trying it for decades
Ok , so i swear by this cream and ive always used it on my face , ive never heard of using this anywhee else on your body but il give it a go , i use it every night and wake up with skin so soft and when i do wear makeup , although very rarely i use this cream because it gives me the smoothest base to put my foundation on but you have to wear a powder or you end up looking too shiny , i have normal skin and i think if you have oily skin then steer well clear but if dry then this could be your holy grail moisturiser , i hope this helps people x
thick and creamy.
I wash my hands a ton and they tend to get really dry. In the winter I get gross cracks in my skin. When this happens I know it's b/c I have been neglecting to use my Nivea.
I have tried SO many different moisturizers and this is by far the best. I love the fact that it is super moisturizing but doesn't make my hands feel *too* greasy. I have a big tub at home and one of the baby 99 centers in my purse. Now THAT thing was SUCH a great find!
I only use this on my hands so I can't speak to it's effectiveness on the face or elsewhere.
hated it. made me breakout. WAY WAY too greasy, gave me an oily look.
I'm from Europe, Holland to be exactly. So I'm reviewing the German version. We use this Nivea creme for everything, but we DON'T punt it on our faces. That's what I thought untill recently. I discovered that there is a group of people that does put it on their faces, and it works! I thought it would be way to greasy for my face. It isn't , I put it on at night and in the morning my face is sooo soft! And it doesn't cause break outs! I use toner to wipe the grease away and after that I apply Nivea Soft for the day, another great product from Nivea that I use all over my body!
I purchased this product after seeing a review on Blogdorf Goodman regarding the German version of the creme. I managed to get my hands on a small pot of the German version and it's come in so handy this past winter. You only need a little bit to moisturize your face and any other part that needs moisture. It's very rich and the scent is not overly feminine.
very moisturizing - my skin feels ultra soft and smooth just after the first night.
small size is only 99cents - cheap and sold at the drugstores so it's easy to get a hold of.
bad packaging - the lid can easily slip off. For me it's not a problem since I have it in my bathroom, but it's inconvenient if you want to have it in your purse or for travel.
greasy - when I layer more product, my face feels all greasy... and even when there's a little on my face, it's still a little greasy.
slow absorbing - it doesn't dry and get into the skin that fast. very slow, actually. even after a bit of time, there's still the residue/greasy/oily feeling.
Well. Despite all the cons, I still love this product because of what it does to my skin. So moisturizing and soft. It's best for nighttime, since it feels all greasy. I only had this in the winter too, so if I ever use this in broad daylight, I can only imagine the outcome of that.
Good moisturizer. In winter, my mother often used nivea soft at night and it was really effective (she has dry skin and in winter, her hand chap). Plus, it's cheap. But when I used it, it made my face oily after ten minute. So I think, if you have dry skin like my mother, you should try it
