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.
Purchased in June 2020 at Woolworths for $6.00.
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 :)
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.
Nivea soft white pot used since 14 now 80
im so disappointed you have changed the recipeones just purchased are oily heavy do not penetrate skin..ive used this product since age of 14 now aged 80...even tonight after 6 hours since applying my skin is still greasy....not happy as i now have to look for some other product.
Amazing doesn't make me brake out and defiantly keeps my skin nice and soft and not dry. Love it best moisturiser I've ever brought will continue to use as my skin is dry
Good if you don't mind smell
This is a wonderful rich yet non greasy moisturiser. Only problem is it smells strong. And it's not the usual Nivea smell. This is the only reason I'm not buying more.
Definitely no complaints!
I was looking for a cheap moisturiser to help with the dry patches on my face after exfoliating. I picked up the cheapest one I could find and was so surprised with how good it was. It goes on really well and absorbs within minutes. My skin feels really soft and clean. It wasn't a wow factor but it definitely works well. For those with combination skin I'd really recommend this product :)
Inexpensive, reliable, absorbs great, lasts all day
No real 'wow factor'
cheap and does the job - moisturise !!
This cream is light and easy to apply. I love it so much more than the thick one in the dark tub. It rubs in so easily and can be used all over body. It seems to last a very long time too which is great value for money, The fragrance doesnt bother me at all.It is readily available in supermarkets, and is a fuss free essential for us ladies on a budget !
affordable, light not thick,smooth to apply. day or night use.
Too gunky, greasy and smelly
I was looking for a simple cream preferably with Vitamin E and picked this one amongst 3 others and I was going to do a test run to see which worked better., I started with Nivea and first thing I noticed was it smoothed on and absorbed good but within I was overcome by the strong scent of fragrance. I felt almost nauseated but persisted and by the end of the day it was still there.
The end of the day i felt my eyes watery and i persisted until the evening when i noticed my eye lids were red and sore so i knew full well this was too much. I...also noticed my skin the next morning looked liked my pores were blocked like a layer of dried gunk and not a smooth complexion at all. I would not recommend this if you are sensitive to fragrance and have combination skin. It was cheap thats about it Smelly , irritating to my eyes, , fragrance too strong, gunky on skin clogging pores
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.
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
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 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 one is to greasy takes a while to absorbe in to the skin dont like the smell feels to heavey on the skin
Questions & Answers
Has the formula for this product changed recently
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.
