The Nivea Creme is one of those products that is very budget friendly and so useful to always have one around, famous for its tin packaging, it’s one of those products that I’m always using and repurchasing it, I use all year round, after all, it is a multipurpose product and a very versatile one.
The Nivea Creme is a body and face cream that’s a more of concentrated moisturizer and is suitable for all skin types. But it’s not that kind of moisturizer you put on the whole body, I use on the parts where the skin is usually drier, like on the heels.

• How I use the Nivea Creme
The brand says that the product can be used on any part of the body or even the face (just be very carefully if you have oily skin, do not put it all across your face!), I’ll tell you a bit about how I use this product and its results.
I advise using it mainly on the drier regions of the body, as it is a more concentrated moisturizer, more like the texture of a butter and not as thin as a lotion.
Another use of this product that I began to make some time ago was to use it on the lips too, I bought here in Italy on a cold winter in which I had just arrived from Brazil and I had forgotten to bring a lip balm. With the cold, my lips were starting to get more dry, when I saw a tin of Nivea Cream on the market soon I thought: I think that’s gonna solve my problem! And I actually really liked the results that I apply it every night until today, regardless of the season, I take a little of the product to apply on my lips before bed or sometimes twice a day if my lips are too dry in the winter.
On that same winter also I decided to apply it in some points of my face, like in the tip of the nose that began to peel a little bit because of the cold weather and in a few days, it had already helped enough to make my skin hydrated and normal again. Just be very careful not to apply this cream everywhere in your face, do not exaggerate and do not apply where it’s not needed, to you can avoid some over hydration and not run the risk of appearing a pimple anywhere.
On the heels I apply this cream every single night, regardless of the season or if I already had a moisturizing lotion after having a shower, I still always apply this cream before bed every night. It helps to keep the heel moisturized and soft, of course if the skin is already too dry, it’s not going to make a miracle and solve the problem overnight, but with a continued use of the product, it makes your skin softer again. If that’s your situation, I recommend going for a feet scrub first and the use the Nivea Cream to keep it soft later.
