Nivea as a night cream
I used to use this cream for years, it was the first moisturiser I ever used. These were the times that my skin was flawless! I must of been doing something right so I recently repurchased. The reason why I stopped using this was because someone told me it gave facial hair which was a load of nonsense but I believed them and stopped using it... and that's when problems and experiments with new skincare regimes began.
Currently, I either use the Bobbi brown tinted moisturiser or Olay Beauty Fluid in the mornings. I stopped moisturising my skin at night so that the natural oils could do its job but realised my skin looked very dry and cracked looking. Winter is approaching and therefore I decided it was time for some intense action. I have been using the Nivea creme for about 4 nights now and my skin is very supple looking, no more cracks! :) This cream is rumoured to have the same or similar ingredients as La Mer, enlighten me somebody!
The texture of this is very thick and rich, once applied it leaves a greasy finish perfect for somebody to see a reflection of themselves in. It's just way too much for daytime, and for that reason I would only recommend using it at night. When I used this in the past, I even used it in the mornings, what was I thinking? I think therefore, my skin was used to SO much moisture that it really had a hard time adjusting to normal light creams, however thank god the Olay beauty fluid works for me. One thing I noticed about this cream is that it has healing properties, when I got blemish marks, this cream helped make them less visible, I'm not sure if that's true, but when I wake up in the morning I can definitely see a difference. It might just be wishful thinking but I like to think that it helps.
Please keep in mind that my skin is dry... this might be too greasy for somebody with normal, combo or oily skin. Furthermore, I think this is a good winter cream, in the summer it may just be too much.
Have you tried this cream, if so what do you think about it?
