Pure white and creamy Review with images

AdvantagesSoothes and smooths the skin

DisadvantagesGreasy at first

"==GIVEA NIVEA A GO== These days there are all manner of lotions and potions that are designed to make you look younger, smooth your skin, or generally make you a better person - and then there’s Nivea Crème. Nivea doesn’t make promises it can’t fulfill; it simply prides itself on being an effective moisturiser which has been used by countless individuals over the course of the last hundred years. Without delving too far into the history of the product, ..." Read review

A Mighty White Weapon Against Dry Skin Review with images

AdvantagesThick and creamy, long lasting, nice frgrance and cheap to buy.

Disadvantagestakes ages to get absorbed.

"...bought so many things including Nivea Crème (the classic one). == A QUICK LOOK INTO NIVEA'S HISTORY == Nivea is a worldwide skin care brand which can be easily found nearly everywhere; it’s a German company named Beiersdorf, founded in 1911. Nivea crème was originally invented in Poland. The word Nivea is devised from the Latin word niveus/nivea/niveum which means snow-white because the finished product was (and still is) brilliant white. ..." Read review

Nivius Takes-care-of-us

AdvantagesExcellent value, works a treat, suitable for all the family

DisadvantagesNone

"...Latin word “nivius” meaning “snow-white”, Nivea Creme has been around for generations and is one product that definitely does not show its age. Skin, the largest organ in the human body, benefits greatly from regular moisturising to supplement its natural oils. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of stretched dry skin when you can almost see the wrinkles appearing in the mirror. Nivea has taken care of my skin ..." Read review

Never Dismiss Nivea

AdvantagesMoisturises, Smoothes, Smells Lovely, Cheap

DisadvantagesNot a handbag hand creme

"Nivea Crème is a lovely, thick moisturising cream from a leading brand. The product I purchased is a 75ml royal blue metal tin, bought abroad when I was searching for something for my eczema. As a result the writing on the tin is in German, a language I do not read or speak. The information on the tin is very minimal, the standalone title is the only information on the lid of the tin along with the price (0,23€) whilst on the back is the list of ingredients ..."

Good all-rounder Nivea Creme

AdvantagesCan be use everywhere

DisadvantagesFeels slightly greasy on the face

"...bright products that come out. Nivea has always been there on the shelf and so I guess I think it is always going to be. Nivea is owned by the German company Beiersdorf and appears to have always have been from its creation 1911. Nivea comes from the Latin word which means snow-white. Looking on the Nivea website it seems they are pre-packaging and re-naming some of their products into sleeker, curvier bottles. For example the Rich Care Body ..." Read review

Nivea, a little pot of joy!!!

AdvantagesReliable, affordable, great on dry skin types and easy to apply.

DisadvantagesMay not be suitable for those with greasy or oily skin types.

"Nivea creme was the first moisturiser that i ever used on a dialy basis when i was in my early teens and i have since tried many different types of moisturiser but i always go back to my trusty favourite Nivea as it offers far superior results to anything else which i have tried. When i was young Nivea was always around my house and its the favoured moisturiser of pretty much every female in my family from my gran to my mum, everyone uses it. For ..." Read review

Tested by Snow White. Naked.

AdvantagesLovely smell, handy, portable size, results in soft skin

DisadvantagesTakes ages to sink in, not super cheap

"...including, but not limited to, Nivea Crème. ** Background ** It’s fitting that I’m writing this in Germany, because this is where the cream was first sold, way back in 1911. Nowadays, though, it’s available all over the world, from Argentina to Australia. It comes in little blue pots which, interestingly enough, are made from different materials depending on the country (metal in Germany, plastic in the USA and, if my memory ..." Read review

Smooth and Soft Nivea Creme

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesTakes a while to soak in

"...first ever pot of moisturiser, Nivea Crème, for £2.75 (it was on offer and had £1 off I think). I can remember my mum always having a pot of Nivea when we were kids and she used it on sunburn, rashes and dry skin so for that price I thought that I would give it a go. After a long hot soak in the bath that night I decide to try the Nivea Crème out. The Nivea comes in a deep blue plastic pot with Nivea Crème written on it in white. The packaging ..." Read review

Aaaaahhhhhhh Nivea!

AdvantagesCheap, cheerful, effective

DisadvantagesCan be greasy, not for oily skin

"...have probably guessed, I'm a Nivea fan for my moisturiser on my face. I have been using this ever since I was little and it was the only beauty product I could buy with £1 pocket money. Nivea is made by Beiersdorf and is the Matriarch of the whole Nivea family which now encompasses sun cream, deodorants, lip care & bath care amongst other products. Nivea has also recently won the 2006 European 'Most Trusted' skincare brand in every European country ..." Read review

A simple but effective product

AdvantagesGood cream, provides intense moisture

DisadvantagesCould give a better usage guide, or indeed any!

"...the smallest size they did. Nivea Creme is also available in tin containers of 30ml and bigger tubs of 200ml. == Packaging == The packaging of the tub doesn't really give much away about the product. It has 'Nivea Creme' written on the lid and around the sides various times but it does not have anything else to describe the product. It doesn't even say whether it is a face cream or a body cream! If it hadn't been displayed in a section specifically ..." Read review

Nivea - Never Be With Out It

AdvantagesSmells Nice , Works Well , Very Reasonable Price

DisadvantagesCan Take A While To Absorb Into Skin

"Nivea Skincare Moisturiser Creme Heaven in a pot. Last year i started suffering with dry skin. I tried various products many including well known high street chemists own brands, aswell as the expensive designer sorts. I dread to sum up the amount of money i spent on various products that werent up to satisfaction. There was a three main points that kept putting me off products, The Smell, The Price , And The Feel. I found a couple of creams ..." Read review

A pot of grease for your face anyone?

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesGreasy

"...details of Beiersdorf (manufacturers of Nivea products). Upon opening the tin it has a silver foil lid you have to pull off to reveal the cream. All in all I like the simple, classic packaging though I do have a query!?! I picked this off the section in Wilkinson's that was face care products and other people have reviewed this as a face cream but looking through some other reviews on here I've noticed some other people have reviewed this same ..."

Beautiful cream.

AdvantagesMoisturises the skin well.

DisadvantagesNone.

" I have been buying Nivea cream for many years. I am nearing my last jar and have bought some more recently, so that I am never out of it. I like to use it alongside my other creams I like to use. I find Nivea is a really good well known brand. It has been around for such a long time and is very reliable. The one I bought recently comes in a dark blue tub, it has a screw off lid and the cream is a white colour. It is such a thick, rich cream which ..." Read review

The Little Blue Tin from Childhood. Review with images

AdvantagesCheap, Great General Moisturiser, Used by all of the Family, Trusted Brand

DisadvantagesTakes a while to absorb for Oily parts of the face.

"...that little blue tin was Nivea Creme. It never got used very often but it was always there for whenever one of the family needed it. Dry Skin, Flaky Skin (Me), Dish washing hands (Dad), Make Up Remover (Mum), baby bottom cream, burns cream etc. The flat blue tin with the grease marks on it was always the reliable product to use when something happened or you had awfully dry skin or a tight face. It was never given much thought but it was always somewhere, ..." Read review

Pure and simple skincare

AdvantagesSimple, great smell, many uses

DisadvantagesA bit greasy

"...try out was always her Nivea creme. I loved its creamy white texture, gorgeous smell and would cover my whole face in it! Now I'm older, what do I think of the stuff? Nivea creme is the original product from neutrogena and has remained unchanged for years, even the tub has stayed the same. Basically, I have faith in a product that has managed to be so popular for so long and is used all over the world. It promises gentle moisturising and the ..." Read review
