Nivea is the moisturising brand that everyone, or most people rather, go for most of the time in the Singapore drugstore context. It goes a long way back, which is probably why this is so. So when I was asking my mum for some tips, she immediately recommended Nivea.

And I have to say that Nivea does do the job. It definitely isn't a miracle worker though. I got the Intense Moisture Body Milk for night usage and the UV whitening serum for day use. Though they do only that much for moisturising, they do have amazing scents. I especially like mine for the UV whitening serum, which has a floral scent AND SPF 25 PA++. I don't really see much of the whitening effect, but the SPF and moisturising contents satiate me sufficiently for now ^_^

So yup! Go for the scent if you're more au natural with your nose :)

The best thing about the Nivea range is it's wallet friendly prices and diverse range of products available. Having tried quite a few of their lotions though, I feel that their vaunted moisturizing properties are only so-so. While it may be a decent moisturizer for a humid place like Singapore, it is unlikely to be moisturizing enough for dryer climates overseas.

I've also used the lotion from their whitening range for a few months now, and it seems to work just like any other moisturizing lotion from the brand, with no noticeable brightening or whitening effect at all.

The fragrances of the lotions are mildly floral and pleasant, and is absorbed into the skin easily enough. Overall though, nothing remarkable or worth repurchasing for.

Do you have cracked, dried lips when you travel overseas? Try Nivea. When I was in Europe for two weeks, all of my family's members lips were unaccustomed to the dry air of London. In a last ditch attempt to save our lips, we purchased the Nivea lips balms and they work almost immediately. I suggest applying a thick coat before you sleep and when you wake up, most of the excess will be gone and you're left with smooth lips!

However, if you're looking for something for more general use, I would actually suggest you try Vaseline. Just get a small travel sized tub and carry it along. You can use it for many purposes, from covering a mosquito bite (it works!) to using it as a temporary plaster over small cuts or scratches.

Multipurpose wonder - Nivea Creme
Overall Rating

I’ve used Nivea products for as long as I can remember. I bought my first lip balm, hand cream and deodorant from this brand, and I can’t say that the quality is particularly good. Yes, it does its job, but there’s nothing remarkable about the products, and I’m sure better products are readily available.

When I was in Thailand last month, my skin became really dry and I was looking for a multipurpose cream to soothe it. I popped by the nearest 7-Eleven, and picked up a small tin of Nivea crème, hoping that it would do for the night, so that I could buy a better one the next day. After applying it on my arms and legs, I went to sleep.

When I woke up the next day, I was pleasantly surprised by how moisturized my skin felt. It was still a little dry, but its condition was much better. After returning to Singapore, I bought a big tin of Nivea creme, and I apply that every night now. If you’re looking for a multipurpose cream for your whole body, this is worth a shot!

NIVEA is a rather good brand for skin care. I use their moisturizers and they do make my skin smoother and softer within days. Just remember to put them on regularly. Although on some occasions when i forget to put on moisturizer, my skin is still soft, which suggests the products have long-term effectiveness.

One thing about NIVEA, as with many beauty companies, is that there are far too many products serving the same purpose! I get confused as to exactly which moisturizer should i use and all that because there are so many to choose from.

For me, I tried out 2 different moisturizers from NIVEA and found the white circular can one to be more suited to my skin. So, my advice is to do as much research on the products as possible to find out which is best for your skin type. because they are not cheap considering that you have to buy them regularly. I never quite liked asking the staff helpers at Watsons. I feel like sometimes they are talking nonsense... >.<
