Hey you guys! You know how some things are staples in your vanity? Like that Kohl pencil you keep going back to? Or the red lipstick that you’ve loved for a long time? Well, oddly enough , I scoured through the VNA Archives, and there wasn’t a review up on the classic blue tin in everybody’s vanity: The Nivea Creme. So today, I’ll be quickly reviewing this old cream, and listing some of the odd little ways that i use it. People always have doubts on how to use it, where to use it, can it be used on face, how does it work on acne prone skin, pimples, face pack, etc so today lets answer all your questions.
Nivea Claims: Skin gets deprived of moisture easily and this will make it look dull and wrinkled. To ensure that the skin remains healthy and glowing you will have to moisturize it regularly. The Nivea Crème is a moisturizing skin cream that issuitable for all skin types. Apart from being a cream suitable for all skin types it can also be used by men, women and children alike. This dermatologically tested Nivea skin cream is absolutely safe on the skin. Using the Nivea Cream will help you in protecting your skin and soothing the dry skin all over your body especially places like the elbows, heels, cuticles and all the body parts that need an extra bout of hydration. You can use this soft and gentle Nivea Crème on your sensitive skin and the delicate skin of babies as well. You can apply this skin cream regularly to obtain soft, supple and amply hydrated skin.
Skin Type: All Skin Type
Key Benefit: Enriched with skin caring Eucerit, NIVEA Crème is an everyday, multi purpose crème which protects and gives relief from damaged skin, leaving it healthy.
Rich and mild texture
Usage: As often as required
Packaging : It comes in the old-fashioned blue tin pot. Now this is something that i wish they would revise, because it’s messy packaging, the closure almost always is defective and I somehow manage to spill some. It’s usually a series of unfortunate events.
Fragrance : The fragrance of the Nivea Creme been the same for as long as I can remember, and I’ve gotten so used to it that it doesn’t bother me anymore. If you’re someone with a sensitive sniffer , and the typical cold-cream scent isn’t your thing, well, tough luck!
Texture and Consistency : The one thing that everyone agrees on regarding the Nivea Cream is that it’s a little too dense, and it’s not something you would want to use on your face because it feels heavy on your skin , unless you have really dry skin. (As in, Reptilian scales -dry!) Another issue is that it greases up really fast, and leaves a slightly oily film on the surface of your skin . As for the hydration part, it does work really well.
I’ve gone through countless little travel size containers of this so far , and this is how I use the Nivea Creme :
Since i’m a heel junkie, my feet are subjected to torture almost routinely and breaking in new heels is bloody painful. So i rub some of this stuff over the sides of my feet and the back of my ankle, and because this doesn’t dry off really fast and leaves a film, it helps keep my feet from getting blisters.
So i hate to admit it, but the soles of my feet get really dry , and it’s not really a pretty sight. Once in a while, i will rub some of this over the soles of my feet, put on some fuzzy socks and go to bed . In the morning, it’s all smoothed over.
My lips for some reason don’t respond to regular lip balm, and the only thing that works for me when my lips are chapped is cold cream. I love this stuff a little more than the regular ponds cold cream (which stings on chapped lips by the way!) , because it fixes my lips up over night.
I use it to remove my eye makeup (as long as it’s not water proof) , since makeup remover wipes get expensive , they add up and i go through them like crazy . My frugal little self prefers regular facial wipes dipped in cold cream.
Although the cream isn’t something that i use as a moisturizer for my skin, i love blending in cream blushes with a teeny-tiny bit of it , since i’m guilty of being heavy handed with blush and looking like a clown is only appropriate as a costume.
Price: Rs.75 for 60 ml. It’s one of those products that are Really affordable, and have been around for ages.
VNA Rating: 4.5/5
