Devastated- my children are so burnt!!!
This product does not work. My children are horribly burnt after using Nivea sunscreen. We were only in the sun for two hours between 08:30am and 10:30am. It looks like we did not use sunscreen at all. They were in so much pain and now have blisters and are peeling. After years of diligently applying sunscreen to my children to protect them, they will now have to live with sun damaged skin. I am so outraged that Nivea claims it is 50+, 4 hours water resistant. I will never buy another Nivea product again!
The worst sunscreen!
Brought this brand and used it on Australia day. 2hrs in the sun and I noticed that my legs and arms were starting to get pink, so I reapplied it thicker, after an hr I could see my skin burning, so then i stayed indoors the rest of the day.
The next day I couldn't walk as my legs were very burnt and swollen and full of blisters which I had to go to the hospital to get them cut off and dressed (very painful).
not impressed in the slightest.
Over a two hour period we applied the Nivea sunscreen spf 50+ several times and also had sum safe clothing and wide brimmed hats on and we ended up burnt and sore. Including my 3 year old and 1 year old. I thought I was being responsible and instead feel like a negligent mother.
Nivea sun screen faulty
Purchased the Nivea 30+ sunscreen in Northland New Zealand. My partner and I applied to our exposed skin areas prior to a walk along the beach. 1 hour of sun exposure left us both burnt.
Thankful we didnt need to use it on our child who remaind under the cover of his stroller for the walk.
I know if this had happened in many other countrirs around the world, Nivea would currently be seeking legal representatiom for the many law suits people would be filing for.
Shame on you Nivea!
We used this product for months including different batches. My partner who doesn't usually get allergic reactions got kept getting a rashes on his arms and neck. This has also stained our white clothing where the sunscreen would touch tge edges, despite putting clothes on a white soak several times we cannot get the brown/tan colour out. Good quality clothing some new ruined. Thanks Nivea :(
I've had a really positive experience with Nivea's 50+ sunscreen. It applies smoothly and evenly, and doesn't have an overpowering smell. I have never been burnt wearing this sunscreen. I love this sunscreen, it does the job well and doesn't leave behind a greasy residue like other sunscreens.
Would not recommend to anyone..
Applied to my face, arms and chest before playing with kids in the backyard and discovered the next day my face was covered in rashes and blisters..had a bad reaction to an ingredient used in sunscreen and am taking meds to try stop the rash and creams to stop scarring and itching..face is covered i cant leave the house due to how frightful it looks..very disappointing
Nivea face moisturiser gave me a rash
I used the face moisturiser product twice - on face and neck. First time I felt itchy. Second time I got a bad bright red, very itchy rash with tiny blisters that lasted 2 weeks. I have a sensitivity to mango, so always check the ingredients lists on products, but some only state "active" ingredients. I wonder whether there is mango in the sun block/moisturiser products without it being listed. It is not uncommon for people to react to mango as it's a member of the poison ivy family. Because of this alll Nivea products are now on my no-go list.
Nivea 50 plus protect and moisture batch 53261477 time 07/11 exp 07/2017
We have always used Nivea but this batch resulted in us all being and blistered with only 2 1/2 hours in lte afternoon sun with a re-apply we were very shocked it must be a bad batch - we have 2 bottles and we shall be putting them in the bin
Does not work!!!
I have used Nivea sunscreen for years..25+!
I purchased a 'new improved' version and have the worst sun burn after an hour in the water. I am always careful, apply 30 minutes before, even swim with a hat! My olive skinned husband was burnt after 45min in the water!
This product doesnot work!
December 2nd 2017 Update: Failed the Consumer NZ test!
Myself and many others were badly burnt using this product and complained to Nivea last year, with them denying there was an issue, with the new and improved product.
The Consumer NZ test results this week show a fail! I feel validated.
Worst sunscreen - it doesn't work!
After reading the reviews I also experienced similar issues. This product should be recalled immediately!! I have emailed Nivea with my concerns and will wait for their reply. I applied sunscreen liberally and as directed, reapplying. I was only in the sun for a small amount of time and was burnt to a crisp! I have never burned using other sunscreen brands. Not happy!!
