Review of "Nivea Soft Intensive Moisturising Creme"
Rates not sticking Grr…!!
I don't normally use a moisturiser that is designed for all over as I think they don't work as effectively as separate face and body ones do.
That was until I received a trail size sample through the post of this product - Nivea Soft Intensive Moisturising Cream.
As it was only a small sample I decided to test it out on my hands as it states it's ideal for hands, face and body. On trying it I was very impressed so decided to buy a tube next time I was in Superdrug (which is very often).This cream comes in a 75ml tube costing £1.89 which I was just about to buy when I noticed that a 300ml size tub was only £2.99. It doesn't take a mathematical genius to work out the tub was by far the better option so in my basket it went.
So what is it?~Nivea Soft is marketed as being an "Intensive Moisturising Cream for invigorated, smooth skin" and contains jojoba oil and vitamin E for maximum effectiveness.
Price and packaging~As mentioned in the above paragraphs it comes in the 75ml tube and a tub which the normal size is 200ml. My luck was in as the tub contains 50% extra free and normally retails at £3.99 - I got a real bargain so was pretty pleased (and smug!) about that.
The cream comes in a very basic looking tub which is predominantly white with a smattering of blue for the lettering. I like the appearance of the tub as it looks very simplistic and there's nothing too overly 'fancy' about it.My experience of using it~
On unscrewing the easy to open lid there is a silver foil covering the cream; this has a small overlapping flap to make it easy to pull back.Once removed the cream is easy to access so what did I think?
Appearance wise this cream looks the business. The texture is rich and creamy yet has a lightness about it at the same time. On scooping a small amount onto my hands I was hesitant whether this would be suitable for my face but I thought I'd at least try it.The cream took seconds to soak into my skin and felt so soft on applying to my face - I was very impressed as it didn't sting nor leave my face feeling tight like some new moisturisers can.
I used the cream all over my body and again it just soaked straight into my skin, which as I have dry skin at times, this felt lovely and quenching.The scent is another plus but it's really difficult to describe it to someone that hasn't used this product before. It's a very clean, fresh fragrance and slightly reminds me of Dove but that's just my opinion.
Would I recommend this?~Yes definitely.
This is a fabulous moisturiser that works perfectly on all areas of the body/face. It soaks in well and moisturises the skin leaving it feeling soft and supple and has the most beautiful scent to it. Though it's got quite a strong fragrance I didn't find it interfered with my perfume and deodorant at all, it just left a subtle scent on my skin.
I've been using this for a while now and though it is very moisturising I use it on my face in a morning whilst preferring a more intensive type of cream for night time use. It doesn't say anything about SPF so I wouldn't advise using alone.Miscellaneous~

I'm so glad that little sample popped through my letterbox! This is a lovely cream that is ideal for smothering into your skin after bathing or if your skin is a bit 'thirsty'.
A small amount seems to go a long way so my 300ml tub (bonus!) should last a while I will certainly be buying this again in the future.
