Nivea Cream Review

Nivea crème

I was surprised to see that none of the IMBB members have written on this oldest multipurpose cream , in fact this cream is used by every member of a family regardless of age and gender . May be it was left for me to review on this product. :)

nivea cream review

My experience:
Soft , creamy multipurpose cream which can be used as a moisturizer during all seasons . This milky white cream comes in flat blue color tin with soft thick texture and a unique sweet fragrance. It gives greasy shining effect to skin and makes skin sticky. I usually use a small quantity of it after face wash. Skin soothes and gets moisturized which lasts for long time. I also sometimes use it as a night cream which results in baby soft skin at the morning. It even works on cuts and burns and can be used for baby rashes. In winters , it can be massaged to whole body surface( including lips, palms, elbows, hands and foot). I sometimes recommend my husband to use it after shave.

nivea cream

Pros:
• Works well on dryness.
• Mild cream without any side effects.
• Economical.
• Travel friendly.

Cons:
• Greasy thick cream.
• A little more applied makes skin sticky and shining.
• Unhygienic packing. Cream sticks to nails while using.

Will I recommend?
Yep. This is best all purpose cream and very much effective for dryness.
Rating:
4/5

in my school days, my relatives in Middle East brought only this cream then, the only cream they were aware that time :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
I dont use it on my face, since mine is not a dry skin, though i use it on my feet and dry areas in hands/legs. I love the smell of this cream :love:
