Today’s review is about Nivea Intensive Care Hand Cream. Now that winter has set in with snowfall, my hands need extra moisturization. No matter how much hand cream I use, I always end up with white flakes in some corners of my fingers. I hate to see those! So here is a product which helps me battle dry, flaky hands.
Price: €2 for 100 ml

My Experience with Nivea Intensive Care Hand Cream:
Let’s start with the packaging. Nivea has come up with some innovative packaging with respect to a hand cream. As you can see from the pictures, the packaging looks like a large oval with one flat end. I like the packaging and find it attractive. The whole packaging has the original Nivea blue color. The plastic used is of good quality, making it easy to squeeze. I do not know how it will function when I am running out of the product, though. I am not sure if I will be able to squeeze the entire product out.
The packaging is more like that of a body cream. The product comes with a flap lid. The flap lid is thin and it opens and closes easily. It’s pretty tight and I see no chance of the packaging opening accidentally. It is surely travel-safe and also fits easily into the handbag. One thing I like about the packaging is that the sharp corners are no more there to hurt your nails or fingers.
The fragrance is the original Nivea fragrance. I love it! It’s very mild and most of you will like it. The consistency of the cream is very thick. The cream is white in color. The cream has almond oil, which makes this cream very nourishing. I use a small groundnut sized amount for my hands. I rub it well in between the fingers and also on the tips. The cream is very thick and feels slightly oily. But the oily feeling disappears within a minute.
I do not prefer hand creams which feel oily. I hesitate to touch anything if my hands are oily. But this cream gets absorbed very well and leaves the hands non-greasy. The fragrance also lasts for an hour or so. My hands feel soft and nourished. Also, the white flakes are not visible when the cream is applied. I reapply the cream once every 4 hours or so. Overall, I love the results it’s delivering. Will continue using this cream through this winter.
