great overall product
this is definitely one of those creams I think everyone should have in their cabinet. I use mine whenever my skin isn't its best and it can be used with other skincare products, I use this right after I use my Veldere clay mask once a week.
Purchased in May 2020.
I have been using for ages, this creme is purely fantastic. it smells good and smoothens rough sorface sony skin such as elbows, sides of my back etc. I have very sensitive skin and this didn't cause me any irritation.

Good value for money product.
I don't believe in spending lots of money on post shave products. Anything from the supermarket is fine. I also don't usually putting anything on my face, however sometimes I do find a product that I like, and this is one of them. The previous product of the same brand I used has been discontinued. That product came in a handy small pump pack. I use such products so infrequently that they tend to last years. What to buy as a replacement ? I spotted this tin on special at my local Woolworths so thought I'd try it. One of the problems with buyin...g new products is you might not like the smell, or it might burn your skin, so it's a bit of a gamble. I like the smell of this product, and it didn't burn my skin post shave. I won't use it everyday, usually just for social events or job interviews. The product is a white cream, which comes in a giant round tin, much like an oversized shoe care product. There is also a foil seal, so you can't test smell it prior to purchase.
Simple, but so good
For me, this is a skincare staple. This helps keep the skin on my face moisturised for hours, especially when my skin is drier than usual. When I apply it at night, my skin remains moisturised the following morning. I don't use it during the day in summer though, because it's very rich and gets greasy when it's hot.
This product's texture is very thick, so to apply more effectively I press it onto my skin so that the heat from my hands can help spread the cream.
Great for dry winter skin
Been using it for years it’s great for dry winter skin. Not greasy. Nice perfume. I have sensitive skin and never have a reaction from Nivea. This product is consistently high quality.

Best face lotion in the world
This is the first review I have ever written online because I’m not a vocal person on the internet but I had to talk about the best face lotion I have ever had. It is so soft and makes my skin feel and look smooth and healthy. I have refered this to my family and friends and they are also hooked on it. No joke the best face lotion you could ask for. Thanks Nivea <3
Purchased in January 2019 for $1.00.
This is a great lotion for skin that needs hydrating. I use it for my feet and hands. Makes them smooth. Someone on a previous review claimed they changed the ingredients of The Original Nivea from the 30ml and 60ml. I looked and the ingredients are the same.
I highly recommend this product. For feet at night put a good amount on and rub in good. Do this about 20-30 minutes before bed and then put on socks. I know..I hate wearing socks to bed. But even if you find a thinner pair it will help so the lotion will stay on longer and absorb in more....

Fabulous, goodbye French expensive moisturiser!
I can’t believe how good this cream is. I read the reviews and it was on special for $2.10 a tin! I have dry skin and I have been searching for a reasonably priced rich cream. My favourite French one was discontinued (and so expensive) so after trialling heaps, decided to give Nivea a go. As others have said, use it sparingly, give it 10 mins and see how it feels. My skin is hydrated and looks great ... can’t praise it enough.
I have a dry skin (47 yr old) and have tried so many night creams and spent so much to date. This Nivea cream is the best solution for me - the price and the result are amazing. My skin continues to be hydrated till morning and soft. I have tried another Nivea cream (white jar with Jojoba oil and vitamin E) but this blue original one is the best. Better than night creams which cost over $120. Have a try, you won't loose anything as it is so cheap, but it certainly works. Can use for the whole family too.
The highlight of this winter - amazing new discovery (sort of)
I've tried Nivea Crème over the years and basically hated the texture so would throw virtually full tins away. But I kept reading about how awesome it was so I decided to try it just one more time. This time I used it sparingly - and realised I'd been using it wrong in the past. I was using it the way I use other moisturisers (liberally) and I think in the case of Nivea, that was heavy-handed. This is a rich moisturiser and a little bit goes a long way. It doesn't spread as easily as more liquid moisturisers so you need to work it around t...he skin. It initially feels greasy but check in ten minutes and all you have is soft, smooth skin. And, your skin is hydrated for the rest of the day. Truly amazing. I'm glad to have given it this another try. I am using it on my face (as a night cream) and over my body including hands and feet at night. I wake up to soft skin. I'm falling in love with the scent too (but it doesn't linger after application). I think it might be too rich in summer with the humidity here but I hope I can keep using it because I love what it's done for my skin.
Nivea Creme is Absolutely Amazing!
I recently purchased Nivea Creme and I was pleasantly surprised by this products ability to moisturize my skin all day long. This product is simply amazing especially on my Melanin skin. I absolutely love it and can't get enough of this product. Its not only for your hands, it works wonders all over your body.
Classic must have
This cream is a classic must have for all womens beauty regimes. I grew up with this stuff. My grandmother, aunties, my mum and i all still use it daily. Growing up the women in my family were always complimented on their skin and how they look at least 10yrs younger than they are so since then i knew there was something to it and began using it in my teens ever since. It is very thick and can appear greasy, so i only use it at night or if im staying home, opting for the lighter Nivea day cream version for my daytime use. It soothes, it feeds and your skin drinks it up like no other. You will notice a difference virtually overnight. Definitely recommend to all
Nivea - one of the best cremes ever created for skin care
I am a mature aged European woman, with fair skin. During a course of my life, I have tried a lot of of different moisturising cremes, both expensive and inexpensive ones. Somehow, I always was going back to Nivea creme. Now, in my 50-ties, I have just decided to stop trying other cremes and simply keep using Nivea each morning. Nivea has been a great "classic" cream for me, with very nice moisturising effect. I called it "classic" because it has been available even when my Mother was a young girl...... By the way, my Mother also used Nivea regularly and had great skin!
i was given a sample of La Mer at a fashion event. I had never used it before. I googled it - I google most things to find out more as I am a curious person in life. I read a review comparing La Mer to Nivea creme- a fairly hefty price difference- one at around $250 the other a supermarket product. I used my sample of La Mer for a few weeks. It was good but not great. I then switched to the supermarket's Nivea crime . That was three years ago. Specialist beauticians complement me on my smooth, clear skin and often scoff when I tell them it's Nivea. I test out other products from time to time but not one gives me the outstanding results Nivea creme does. I'm 50 and my skin is great. Love this stuff and use Nivea body lotion as well.
I have just completed a chemo treatment on my face due to many years of too much sun. I started using aloe Vera to heal & rejuvenate my skin but soon changed to Nivea - WOW! my skin drank up the moisture morning & night & has never looked better. Wrinkles are minimised & my skin glows & looks well hydrated. After many years of very expensive French brands I will be Nivea from now on.
Questions & Answers
Is Nivea cream good for mature skin and which I should use?I am 62 years old woman.I am using Nivea for my my body and I loved but never try face cream.
Hi Maria, I'm not a dermatologist. I'd suggest contacting Nivea, who are experts on this, to answer your question. They have a vested interest in selling their products, so will probably say yes even if it isn't true. You need to know facts. Will it work or not, or will it harm you. I suppose male skin is different to female skin. Is there a female orientated Nivea skincare product?
