PROS

Long-lasting

Moisturizes the skin

Heals cracks

True to all claims

CONS

Unhygienic packaging

No sunblock


My skin is very sensitive and reacts quickly to products it is not comfortable with. Come winter, it becomes very dry, and sometimes, my cheeks hurt if I don’t moisturize them enough. Last winter, I used this Nivea cream and even this season, I have been using it. It is like my personal favorite of the winter season.

I mostly use this cream on my face. It gives the right moisture my skin needs. I use this cream before I head out and before I call it a night. I wish it had sunblock, though. Thankfully, I stay in a cold region, but for the better good, I wish it did.

Now coming to its packaging, over the years, it has remained almost the same. I wish with time, Nivea made some changes to its tub. A tube dispenser will be so much better than a tub.

Nivea cream stays true to its claims and quenches my skin’s thirst for moisture. It is among the best cold creams and is readily available and affordable.

It is best for dry skin.

PROS

Makes the skin soft

Mild fragrance

Long-lasting effects

Deep nourishment

CONS

Greasy


My skin is oily on the face and super dry on the rest of the body. So, for deep moisturization, I buy the bigger tubs to use it on my body. I don’t use it on my face because it makes it greasy and sticky. But on my body, it is the best thing.

The deep nourishment takes away all the dryness and flakiness. It has a distinct smell, but it is not overwhelming. It makes my skin so soft and keeps it nourished throughout the day.

PROS

Affordable

Multipurpose

CONS

Not for oily skin

Makes the skin greasy


I bought NIVEA Creme to use as a winter cream, but it didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to. The first day I used it, I washed it off after an hour or so. It made my skin very sticky and greasy. It is not at all suitable for oily skin, not even during winters. And I am quite doubtful if it will suit combination skin.

I am aware of the goodness and multipurpose uses of this cream, so I use it on my elbows and heels. This has been fruitful. My elbows and heels feel soft and tender. That way, it is a decent cream.

PROS

Heals chapped lips

Works great as a makeup remover

Quickly absorbed

CONS

No SPF

Makes the skin greasy


NIVEA Creme works great in moisturizing my face, but it does get a little greasy and heavy, so I don’t use it when I get out. I also use it as a makeup remover! I apply it on my face and wipe it off with a tissue. It works very well that way.

I also use it on my chapped lips overnight. The next day, my lips are revived and stay soft throughout.
