nivea moisturizer

Hi, all you beautiful ladies! We all share a common love for grooming & self-care & most of all maintaining our appearance. We all know how important it is for a woman to groom herself & retain her natural beauty to develop her self-confidence. Our skin tells others how we feel. We blush when we are paid a compliment. We get goosebumps when we are frightened. And our skin is never more radiant than when we are happy. As women, we must take good care of our skin, as part of our grooming process. As we take pride in our appearance!

Today my post is about Nivea Soft Light moisturizer Cream.

I am sharing my review on this blog to help you make an informed decision on your beauty purchases. I’ve been using Nivea products since my childhood & vouch for their effectiveness. I’d recently visited Health & Glow & was asked by the salesgirl to try out the Nivea soft cream product.  It kept my face hydrated all day with no reapplication required.  The texture felt light & didn’t feel greasy on application & the fragrance was pleasant. The one aspect of usage I was uncomfortable with was is the tub container, as I need to dip my fingers in the tub, which makes the product unhygienic & prone to bacteria.

Overall, the product is a fast-absorbing cream that makes your skin smooth, soft & healthy. It’s enriched with Jojoba oil, Vitamin E & is a perfect refreshing moisturizing cream. Nivea is a German personal care brand, with a legacy of more than 130 years, which began in the year 1911. It’s a pioneer that invented modern skincare that’s trusted by millions of people globally. Nivea is backed by solid R&D, for varied skin types & care requirements, due to which ingenious skincare products have been conceptualized ranging from soaps, does to creams.

The packaging is subtle & minimalistic. The cream comes in a white plastic tub which is sturdy & travel-friendly. It’s easy to store, carry & use. It has light blue designs on it. The sides & bottom have information on address, ingredients & price. On opening the tub, there’s a silver foil covering the cream.

It has a classic fragrance which is mild, soothing and milky

It comes in a milky white colour & has a very light texture. It has a medium consistency, creamy texture that glides on the skin. After massaging gently, it gets absorbed, without feeling greasy or sticky on the skin. It seeps completely into the skin and keeps my skin soft, supple & hydrated all day. The only drawback of this moisturizer is that it comes without SPF.

My Experience…

On a freshly cleansed face, I dotted the cream & massaged it gently in circular motions. What I noticed first, the super smooth and soft texture.
It kept my face hydrated all day with no reapplication required. I use Nivea soft cream as a hand cream too & it also made my hands soft & smooth. The texture is light & non-greasy on application, spreads easily, with a pleasant fragrance. Nivea soft cream protects the skin from drying out, intensely hydrates & provides 24+ hour moisturization. But since it comes in a tub, it’s unhygienic as I need to dip my fingers in it.  After application & massage, the skin feels soothed, nourished, moist & glowing.  It’s a handbag must-have & comes in handy in those emergency moisture moments, and has a tight sealing lid that never leaks in my bag or luggage when I travel.

Reasons to buy Nivea Soft cream
-Non-comedogenic & won’t clog pores
-Lightweight moisturizer that’s used under foundation
-Easily absorbed into the skin, non-greasy
-Nourishes dry skin, heals cracked patchy skin, prevents dryness -Suitable for all skin types and ideal to use by men, women, and children

Finally, some skincare advice…
Always choose a skincare routine that is individually tailored to your needs. Firstly, know your skin type & always use skincare products that are specially formulated for your individual skin type. Sensitive skin needs full attention, always ensure that you’ve adequate sun protection, and always use a face cream with at least a 15 SPF.
