ironic that it has alcohol content in it but a good drugstore product
I was surprised that this product has alcohol content considering it was supposed to make your skin soft. I have tried this and I think I had a fairly good experience. However the alcohol content is just a turn-off.

Drier than the Sahara Desert.
Awful. My skin is now drier than the Sahara Desert. When I looked at the ingredients, it contains 4 different types of alcohol so no wonder my skin is even drier after using it. It's going in the bin.

Great moisturiser and doesn't leave residue
This is my go to body moisturiser as it leaves my skin soft for like 2 days and doesn't leave any greasy or sticky residue behind like a lot of ones on the market, When I apply it Im dry and good to get dressed in less than 5 minutes so is both a cost and time efficient option. I will also note that I have pretty sensitive skin and this doesn't trigger any sort of irritation or contact dermatitis. Highly recommend!

This product leaves the rough skin on your feet feeling soft.
It helps rough skin on your feet to feel smooth and is not greasy. There were no ill effects and I am going to try the face creams because of this

My fail safe product forever - an acne safe, sensitive skin hero
I am 24 years old and have been using this on and off since I was about 16. I use it as a face moisturiser - though it can be used anywhere. Never in a million years would I have considered using a multipurpose cream like this one on my face and yet, it is the ONLY consistent moisturiser that I trust to never cause a break out.
I have VERY sensitive, dehydrated combination skin that is most definitely acne prone. I have quite bad acne as a teenager and it took a long time for me to get under control. This is one of those products I always have...

A little luxury for sensitive skin.
I am older with extremely sensitive, sun damaged skin so have never considered anything perfumed. I grabbed this only for my split dry fingernail quicks on a whim. I spread the remainder on my sun damaged neck and shoulders and the results were instant! I tried it on my face and was shocked at how good it is. It doesn't run in the heat, it actually soothed my face and didn't "grease pool" overnight. It left my skin feeling 10 years younger, especially smoothing my embarrassing flakey, scarred shoulders.
Finally something that feels & smells div...

Great product. Great price
I have been using Nivea Soft for over 2 years now.
It is such an affordable yet fantastic product.
It keeps my skin feeling hydrated and moisturised, and does not leave an oily residue on the skin.
Has a light pleasant fragrance.
I absolutely love this product and will continue to keep purchasing it.

The best moisturiser on the market.
I've been using Nivea Soft for a very long time now. It's the best! Can't tell you how many years I've been buying it. I'm 60 now & you wouldn't know it by looking at me. I look much younger than my age, & I put it all down to this moisturiser. I get lots of comments all the time from people who
can't believe I'm 60. I use it every day under makeup, & also at nite after a shower. It's way too good to use after shaving my legs, so I use another, cheaper moisturiser for that (Redwin Vitamin E Cream). If you're paying more than $20 for your moist...

Such a great product!!
I have been using a number of different night cream for my dry skin (I'm 48) including very expensive products. This Nivea cream from a supermarket is unbelievable. It moisturises my dry skin, even in Perth winter, for the entire day or night. I normally use only at night. Some products do not last for the night and I used to wake up with dried face but this is so different. Super cost effective and actually works on my skin. It contains Vitamin E and Jojoba oil and I found this product better than the traditional Nivea cream in Blue tin. Definitely Value for Money!!

Great Mousturiser & Body Lotion
I used to buy Clinique mousturiser as my everyday use very expensive product but my face still feels dry. When I moved here in Oz 2006 I tried different moisturiser until I use Nivea since then and until now I can't go anywhere without it. My skin absorb it quickly and feels so soft. Love it :)
Recommended by my GP
I had a few blemishes removed from my face and my GP recommended Nivea Soft to use on my face instead of my usual anti ageing moisturiser. I like it. I use it daily before applying sunscreen and/or face powder.
Perfect creme. I will forever buy it.
I have very dry hands and I have been searching for a creme that will really moisturize and get rid of the sand paper look on the top and inside of my hands. One of the workers at Walgreens recommended Nivea Soft. He told me that it really saturated in the skin. I bought it and used it right away. After only a few days the sand paper look was gone and my hands look great. I will forever use this and recommend it for dry hand problems.
Greasy and has a strong smell
It has a thick, greasy texture and causes my skin to look quite glossy after application. It also has this strong (slightly heady) fragrance which may be explained by the fact that it has a quite a few alcohol-based ingredients, which I find isn't ideal.
One of the better moisturisers that I've tried
I find Nivea Soft really does help with dry skin and does it relatively quickly. I do own a couple of small tubs of it that I keep at the office, in my handbag and at home. I have however found it to be a little oily and doesn't quite absorb into the skin. In saying this, I do find this to be one of the better moisturizers out there.

Questions & Answers
Have they changed the ingredients in Nivea soft it appears to be thicker and more greasy than before?
I've only been using it for about a month so am not sure about ingredient changes. Mine is not greasy at all, it soaks in well, leaving my skin really soft. I have noticed they've changed all their body lotions so maybe I have purchased older stock. I really hope not.
I was reviewing the one in the white container with light blue writing on it. Not the original Nivea cream in the dark blue container.
Hi Yvonne, I don't think the ingredients in Nivea Soft have changed. I've recently opened a new jar, & it seems the same as the one before. I do have 2 unopened jars in the cupboard, so will be interesting to see if I notice anything different with them.
