Nivea Creme review

Im pretty sure you have already seen this product when you take a trip down the grocery & pass by lotion/cream/moisturizer aisle....

That blue tub has been around for like forever! Since i have an oily skin, i never imagined that there would be a time where i would buy this for myself...

But i did!

Ok,what prompted me to buy this one?

There was a time that i was searching for a good make up remover... Of course, the usual product like Bi-Facil, Effacil, Neutrogena Make up remover, blah blah... Then i clicked on one site (i just cant remember what it is, but its a bit like MUA) & someone said that she just used the good ol' Nivea Creme to remove her eye makeup.

So that piqued my curiosity... It never occurred to me that a moisturizer can be used as a Makeup Remover (im that dense!) & because of that i just have to do a little research about what other people think...

Most reviews that i keep on reading where from people who saw the effect of this product on the long run. Like, it was their mom who used it (& is still using it) & the effect is that it their moms doesn't even have any wrinkles. So im like 'wow! its really that good,huh?'...then i read this post, & i was convinced that i had to try it for myself!

Hmmm.....it's so good,it can heal sores,huh?

Then when i went to Watson's one time i saw the cute little tin that got hearts on it (click here for details) so i brought it.

What i did at first was i slathered it on my lips (im serious!) because im having pretty dry lips during those times... I did not even care about how i look, but i was desperate! After an hour or so (i was pretty busy blogging that time), i glanced at my mirror & saw that the product was absorbed by my lips. I wiped the remaining product off & was actually surprised to find out that my lips were really pretty moisturized. WOW! it even gave my lips that healthy pink kissable lips!

So i put it back on before i went to bed & i woke up with a very moisturized lips. I just exfoliated it to show my naturally pink lips & im good to go..no need for lipstick! For the first time, i felt that i got that baby lips that i lost 23 years ago...lol!

Then i went to buy the big tub, to be used on the rest of my body...especially my feet. Our feet needs TLC the most! Used it & was really very happy with it that i promised i will never ever look at Nivea like how i did before...


Just like any other moisturizers, this one is white. Its actually heavy & thick...

Once you spread it it will leave that oily film on your skin where i guess it acts as lock to keep moisture in. During the time that i used it, i generously slathered it on ( i guess that's why i have instant results), after a few minutes it will be absorbed leaving you with a soft skin.

As for it being a makeup remover...it also works great. It was able to remove my CG Lash Blast Waterproof like how Bi-Facil works...As what i said before, i thought that only Muriatic Acid can remove that mascara easily...but im surprised that Nivea was able to do that. Though it have that oily residue but for me i just think of it as an 'eye area mositurizer'.

Remember the time when i went on vacation...We went to the beach so i naturally have dry skin. It was so dry that i can feel that 'stretchy' feeling on my back. Its like my skin is being stretched because it doesn't have any moisture on it. What i did at first was asked my grandma to put the Ralph Lauren Rocks Body Moisturizer, since i dont have any lotions at that time. After a couple of minutes, i felt that 'stretchy' feeling on my back again...that what i did was asked my grandma to spritz water first before putting the Body Moisturizer...It did work for a couple of minutes, but it went back...

I got so tired (& my grandma too!) from all that, that i asked my grandma to just use Nivea...& after that i never asked my grandma to do it again...So, this one acts as my overall Body Moisturizer... I really love this one!

It has even been compared to La Mer because of how it looks... I haven't tried La Mer (& i think i never would be able to since its so freakin expensive XD) though everyone who used it says that it is a Miracle Moisturizer. Nivea on the other hand with it being cheap but effective has been loved by many people. It might not be a miracle moisturizer, but for me, with the price i pay, i will consider this as MY miracle moisturizer.

My grandmother used this and till the day she died, she looked great! I hear that the Princesses of Morocco--even though they can afford anything in the world--only use this particular tin of Nivea. Hmmm... Maybe I should buy it, too!

i would buy this sana but I am afraid that it might stimulate my uber oily skin T_T i agree on the break outs during that time of the month! I hate it so much that when I start breaking out i also start panicking!

have you watched the korean version of hana yori dango? i can't believe hanazawa rui in korean looks too too bae yong-joon (aka winter sonata and april snow) gah bae yong-joon is muy macho! and this one is the skinny younger version. I may be bias but i think i like the japanese version better since it's more dramatic XD i like sap and it made me super sappy! bwahaha. you should watch the korean version as well and compare the 3 versions! you will see how the korean synced the two previous versions! I mean there's way too much going on on that drama that you just have to see which one is better! (i personally think that the tamest wicked witch mother is on the korean version. it's like she didn't have much of a role and most of the bad things that are happening are out of luck and or new antagonists) my drama geekery is already coming out so i need to stop here! XD lol

I love the review on the nivea cream. I haven't thought of using cream as make up remover O_O must try sometime!

p.s. i bought the bb cream dupe because i was encouraged by your post hehe.
