I'm not sure why I waited so long to try this. I have used the classic Nivea Creme in the dark blue jar for many years but only on my body. It was too thick and heavy to use on my face. I bought a tube of Nivea Soft to try as a hand cream. I wasn't that impressed with it on my hands, but wow, I love it on my face! My skin can get a little oily, especially in summer, but in winter it can dehydrate. That is when I reach for this. It makes my skin soft again and doesn't break me out. Great product.
Cheap, effective, easy to find, suits sensitive skin
It is cheap compared to other reputable brands and the cream itself is easy absorbed and smells nice. Because it is inexpensive, you can use it on your face or on your body (eg legs after shaving) so you don't have to buy many different products. I have used more expensive creams in the past but often found they would make my foundation go 'gunky' and cake up. I always went back to buying Nivea again. It comes in a few sizes, which is good for keeping a smaller tube in your handbag or gym bag. I would highly recommend this and would never buy anything else again.
I have used this product for over ten years now! I love it.
I love using this product on my face. It is quickly absorbed and leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed. You can feel the difference immediately after you have applied Nivea Soft. Some moisturisers leave your face with feeling greasy and looking shiny - this does not happen with Nivea Soft. I always use it before putting on my foundation. This product is very reasonably priced and the packaging is handy to take in you hand bag or leave in your office drawer. I use this moisturiser every day and would recommend it to any one who has normal skin.
There are no cons that I could find.
Nivea soft is a great general everyday moisturiser and it is very reasonably priced. I think the consistency of the cream is perfect for a combination skin and it actually suits my young daughter's skin as well. The packaging is great with the flip top lid as it makes it easier to apply.
Nivea soft is a great moisturiser for the very low price. You can always find it on the supermarket shelf and I like the tube with the easy to use flip top. It is very effective on dry skin and not too greasy.
I would love to see this moisturiser come out with an SPF included in it.
nivea soft is great and moisturising, its really great on sensitive skin, it does not irritate at all which is great especially if you have allergies or are very highly sensitive to other skin care. the smell is divine, its not strong so doesnt interfear with you perfume and anything else you may be wearing. leaves skin feeling silky smooth and so soft and hydrated. nivea is so cheap compared to other brands and it well worth giving it a try, i would recommend this brand
great value for money, great for sensitive skin, very moisturising, low scent so its not too strong.
I use the version in the tube. For the price it is an excellent all purpose moisturiser and I use it on face and body. I've tried a lot of different moisturisers over the years and when you don't need an added sunscreen it's an excellent choice.
Light scent; non irritating; very moisturising even on flaky skin - if I use it on dry areas they repair quite quickly but it doesn't leave too much of a residue
A little heavy for the face unless skin is very dry so I tend to use it there only in winter.
Great price and always at supermarkets. this is a great product for women and also for men after shaving. this moisturiser is good for dry and sensitive skin. great night cream and also better for the body than for the face, this needs to be in a tube so its easier to get out of a tub
i absolutely love this moisturiser. it is great for all skins, dry and even sensitive. This is good for mens skin after shaving. Leaves facial and bodys skin so so soft and supple/
would prefer it to be in a tube instead of a tub
Nivea soft is a great product and is much more affordable than many of the more expensive moisturisers. It goes a long way and therefore competes even better with it more expensive counterparts. Nivea soft is a real step up from sorbolene based moisturisers and is mildy scented allowing men to use it without smelling feminine. An excellent middle of the road product.
A great unisex product as it is very mildly scented meaning that men have no problem using it too. I give my brother this for an extra gift with his main present for birthdays or Christmas.
This is a really nice product. I use it morning and night and it goes well under my make up. Don't use too much or it can leave your skin feeling a bit oily. I would purchsae this product again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good skin care product.
This is a pretty nice skin product. I find that it is light and easily absorbed into my skin. The price isn't too bad for the quality of this moisturiser. The packaging is nice also.
Couldn't really think of anything - less is more with this product.
I had my daughter get me Nivea Soft for Christmas as I have always found it effective for my face. It is just the right thickness, and not too greasy. It has a gentle fragnance. It is easily absorbed and a good price.
One of my favourite moistorisers for my face.
I have never had a problem with Nivea Soft.
I use this as my night time moisturiser only. You could use it for day time if you don't suffer oily skin, but it can get a little greasy if it is applied to heavily. If you have dry skin most of the time, you will probably find this to be your life saver. It smells amazing, and really does the job of moisturising. It is extremely cheap compared to other moisturisers and readily available from most supermarkets / chemists etc. It absorbs quickly, and truly does make your skin feel very soft
Extreme Moisturisation, Gorgeous Scent
Can be a little greasy if you use too much
Nivea soft is lightly scented and not to thick or creamy. It really helped soften the skin all over my body, especially my legs. The large, round tub lasts for a long time. I would highly reccomend this product to everyone. It's one of the best moisturisers I've used when you think about price, value, effectiveness and scent
the nivea soft cream is just great,it has really helped soften my skin and to lighten a few of my scars. The price is great, very cheap and the product is easily avaliable.
nothing apart from it being a bit greasy but these days what cream isnt
I use Nivea Soft on my face every morning and find it a great everyday moisturiser. I have fairly dry skin so this product is perfect for me as it absorbs quickly and hydrates my skin. This product is also great for all-over body use and is cheap enough to daily. I but the larger tub for less than $10 and find that this lasts about a month begin used every day my family of three. It's nice to know that the traditional favourites still work and are reasonably priced.
Love the smell and the price is great too
This is a good body moisturiser all round, i used it on my face and body at night for a while, but got sick of buting it all the time. if you are using it on your body you will run out quickly and it can get expensive. wouldnt be the best for dry skin.
Absorbs well, Low Scent, Cheap
May be too greasy for face, but ok to use at night
This is an old favourite that I have used time and time again because it is so cheap I keep it in the bathroom cupboard for after showering. I only use it as a body moisturizer because I find it a bit heavy and greasy for my face. It is a nice thick cream that is easy to rub in and it absorbs very quickly. Overall it leaves skin feeling noticably softer.
Great as a body moisturiser that leaves skin feeling really soft and moisturized. Great value for money. Smells nice too, having a soft fresh fragrance.
Too greasy to use on my face.

The jojoba oil is great, it really helped soften my skin and to lighten a few of my scars. The price is great, very cheap and the product is easily avaliable.
Nothing. I don't really use this on my face as it can get a bit greasy.
Nivea soft is a low fragrance, low cost moisturising creme. It is creamy, easy to apply, and is absorbed quickly into the skin. I would highly recommend this product.
This moisturising creme is easy to use, and affordable - stocked by major supermarkets. It's my first choice in facial moisturisers.

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.
