I have been purchasing and re-purchasing this moisturizer/creme (i prefer calling it 'cream', heh) for years now.
It is definitely, as one reviewer observed, one of the best price-quality relation available on the market. I used (and still do, but very rarely now) the nivea creme in the blue tin, which is amazing, but since it's getting warmer and warmer i felt i needed something lighter.
This stuff is heavenly. The consistency is adorable, i even FORGOT about it for several years during my quest for 'the perfect' HG and oh...i cannot believe i never noticed the creaminess, the lightness and the beautiful scent..
It absorbs into my skin very quickly, it feels like my cheeks, hands and legs are drinking it all up (i'm using the jar version, German-made, not something else), a feeling i've almost never experienced with any other moisturizer.
i prefer neither a heavy cream, which gets a little disturbing on the face, nor a light 'fluid' (what's with that trend lately? it's so crappy!) that won't actually do anything to my skin. This is a miracle in a jar. It sinks in and YES, regarding what a previous review said, i also noticed it makes a great makeup base for foundations. i use it with my tricky Estee Lauder double wear and my face never felt more comfortable.
what i love most about this product is the feeling of freshness on your skin after you apply it; it feels like you massaged jelly-type chunks of fresh, scented water! it's so comfortable, so relaxing, using this cream is indeed a beauty ritual.
i remember that throughout my university years i used only this and i never had a breakout, EVER. yes my skin isn't perfect but i never experienced a zit as opposed to now, when alternating between so many types of products has probably made my skin a little dizzy...
i will always continue purchasing this, it is the best 'neutral' moisturizer ever. it DOES what it says it does, it's suitable for all skin types, all ages, multiple-use.. a true gem.

I have very dry skin...like uncomfortable, tight, flakey, eczema prone skin. I have tried sooo many moisturizers, searching for one to make my face feel comfortable. I find myself going back to Nivea all the time since my early 20's - I always use every last drop of it. I recently tried the Soft for the first time and, for my skin, it is the most moisturizing stuff I can find & it makes my face at ease & I actually have no flakes when I use this stuff.
I recently tried a much more expensive brand and I can say that I have a 3/4 full jar of it sitting on the shelf and I've been using the Nivea every day.
I could see people with normal or oily skin finding this way to greasy or heavy, but it's great for us dry skinned gals. To cut the grease look and help my foundation stay, I use a good foundation primer.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that I'd like to see some "anti-aging" qualities to it, or spf. But I suppose keeping your skin well-hydrated is anti-aging in itself :)

With sensitive skin, It says alot for me to be one my third tub of this moisterizer. I use it on my face twice a day and love it! The price is great and the product has an incredibly soft finish. It's not too greasy and too thick! I love this stuff!

I'm not sure if the formular in the jar differs from the one in the tube, but I had different reactions to those.
A couple of years ago I had the one in the jar as an all over moisturizer. And it worked okay. Wasn't the best in the world, but I liked the smell a lot and it is dirt cheap.
Now I have used the one in the tube a couple of times and really didn't like it. The smell is still lovely and it's still cheap, but it didn't do anything postive for me. It felt like it was sitting on the skin instead of sinking in. Gave me a greasy look too.
I will switch to my The Body Shop moisturizer again and use this as a hand cream.

Super inexpensive and an incredible product.
I keep on doubting my opinion of this product and buying more expensive moisturizers but I always come back.

I think this is going to be my HG moisturizer..its makes my hands feel so soft and creamy and moisturized and they stay feeling that way so I don't have to reapply every 30minutes like I do with other lotions. This thick moisturizer is creamy and have a nice fresh baby powder scent thats nice and refreshing.I'm almost out of my little trial size so I am definitely going to repurchase this!

This moisturizer is really good. I got it in the small tin for 99 cents, which really persuaded me to try it out. I was using Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion with the pump, and I love the Nivea Soft in comparison to this product. Its very moisturizing, the scent is nice, it absorbes well and quickly unlike the Cetaphil Lotion, which leaves my skin a bit oily afterwards. Also, I wore this through out the day, and after running for about 45 minutes, my face was still pretty matte. Usually with the Cetaphil Lotion, my face would be quite greasy and I would have to blot quite a bit, with the Nivea soft, not even half of the blotting sheet was used! This moisturizer is definately a staple in my daily facial routine.

I use this in the mornings as part of my daily makeup routine and it makes my face very very soft. The smell is a nice clean scent which may take getting used to on your face. It smooths everything out and leaves my face feeling silky soft. When you first apply it I think it's comparable to how smashbox photofinish primers feel, (NOT in that greasy way if that makes sense). It's lightweight and just a nice clean refreshing moisturizer. Does not leave any sort of film which most moisturizers to my face, absorbs pretty well. I just wish it was not in a jar, other than that amazing product!

i bought this yesterday and i gotta say its not as moisturizing as i like it to be. i have very dry skin so this did not work for me. the scent is nice and soft and fades quickly...it sinks in kinda okay but still will feel a bit sticky after you put it on...overall i would not buy this again i will return it.
