Ever since I was a small child, I was enamored. Enamored by that beautiful blue tin that my mom had!! To be honest, blue is my favorite color. An NO other cream was in that rich blue tin!! I was so much in awe of it. When I grew up, believe it or not, that was THE first crème I bought for myself. Today it comes in a variety of plastic sizes…more practical. Let’s see where does this Nivea crème stand today among throes of others!
What is it and who is it for?

My Experience with Nivea Crème
This crème comes in a standard blue tub packaging. The crème is very thick. It has a typical Nivea fragrance…pleasant…but very cream like. Now, this crème is rich…by rich, I mean oh boy rich!!
So where do you figure using it?
This crème is excellent for those with very dry and mature aging skin. But such a thick heavy cream without any other antioxidants. Is it enough? No. It’s not enough. But here is what you use this for.
Consider this as your classic all-purpose cream. A massage cream…a pre-steam cream…an oil bath if you must!! This has limitless possibilities. My suggestion, use this as a cream to deal with very chapped and dry skin. Slather it on…let it be greasy….but let most of it absorb in.
Then simply go take a shower, use your regular soap/shower gel you like. I promise your skin will thank you for it!! Very dry skin, use it after a shower as well. It is really affordable!!
Positives of Nivea Crème
- Thick rich cream
- Suitable for massaging and relieving dryness
- Easily available
Negatives of Nivea Crème
- Does not have any added antioxidants
- Not suitable for oily/combination skin types
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
Go for this as an affordable massage cream to deal with dryness. Especially suitable as a before shower body treatment once or twice a week, when you cannot bother much with an oil bath.
