I love this product, I have been using it for the past 12 years :) As an ex acne sufferer that has used accutane 15 years ago. My skin no longer suffers from acne but it does get oily patches and it definitely get very dry and red around nose and mouth. Nivea Soft doesn't irritate it at all! which is pretty amazing. The only reason I have bothered trying any other products is because I like the idea of anti-wrinkle products etc but they always upset my skin and therefore I return to my trusty moisturizer :)
So i have really dry skin and have a few blackheads here and there so i use a face scrub and it always ends up drying my face and makes it feel so tight that i think its just gonna rip. so i was at the store and i saw the Nivea Soft face/body/hands moisturizing cream and it was only like 2.98 or something like that and i am so in love with it =] it did just what it said it would do, all in all i will keep buying this product for a good while and my husband loves the way my face is so soft
The first time I used this moisturizer, I loved it. I purchased it twice, and now I believe it actually irritates the skin on my face after long term use. I still use it once in awhile just to finish my last tub. This is nice for body lotion though.
I'm a person that is sensitive(I hate my nose) to heavily scented facial products, and I don't find this moisturizer to be to strong at all, unlike some reviewers mentioned. I actually found it to be lightly scented. Hmm weird.
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..?
