Skin Care Savior // Nivea Creme


Hey everyone! Samantha over at http://allthebuzz.co.uk has created another little blog series that I have decided to partake in! Every week there's a different theme which all of us bloggers post about, and this weeks theme is Skin Care Saviors! Now instead of rambling on and on and boring you to death since I already did an entire post on my favorites and routine which you can find here, I'm going to talk about this little gem most people have lying around their cabinets or somewhere in the house but often neglect it.

Nivea Creme, probably 4/5 of us have it but do we really use it to it's fullest potential? This is my favorite skincare product for the cold winter months (especially here in Poland where it's snowy and windy) or when you're sick and get that chapped skin under your nose.

For those of you who don't know what Nivea Creme is, it is a very thick, unscented creme that won't irritate your skin, clog your pores, and you can use it all over your body. You can see in the picture above how thick it is by how it stands up by itself on the bottom left edge.

You can buy it in small tins like this or in a bigger tub (which I'm going to after this tin runs out) and can put it on scaly alligator elbows like mine. 

But most importantly of all, you don't need to buy a super expensive thick moisturizer to repair dry flaky skin. I am the biggest candidate for dry flaky skin on my nose and in between my eyebrows that makeup (foundation) clings to like no other but using this fixes the problem (almost) immediately. **which I've never had a moisturizer do before

This also works for when you are sick and blowing your nose and get that horrible dry chapped skin under your nose, after blowing your nose apply the Nivea Creme and I promise you you won't end up with dry angry chapped skin (this has been tried and tested many times)

Another thing this magic creme does is when you get the cracks on the corners of your mouth that build up when you pick at them (at least I pick at them) putting a thick layer of this on overnight for a few nights basically solves your problem.

So for a few pounds/dollars/whatever your currency is this is the best thing that could happen for winter skin. Every night (sometimes even in the morning) I apply this directly down the center of my T-Zone and when I wake up my makeup applies so much smoother and more evenly because this hydrates your skin so well.

Do you guys have any of this miracle creme lying around in a cupboard somewhere gathering dust?

  19. I've actually never used the Nivea creme, only the regular Nivea lotion... but I've seen this creme around the blogosphere and the retro tin and pure, plain creme is very appealing. Lately I've been using Loccitane famous shea butter lotions but... to be honest? I don't believe it lives up to the hype one bit. It's just a regular lotion! :( Maybe next time I'll try this Nivea creme :)
