Welcome my dear followers and readers to my post about the creme, which is very historical and loved by many people!
I remember when i was a child – my mom always had medium or large (i don`t remember) sized blue tin… but i remember it so good because of it`s simplicity! And now it`s my time to have it!
In this review i would like to start with some historical facts:
- Nivea was founded on March 28, 1882, and the founder is pharmacist Carl Paul Beiersdorf.
- It is originated in Germany.
- The new owner of the company (Oskar Troplowitz) developed a water-in-oil emulsion as a skin cream with Eucerit, the first stable emulsion of its kind. This was the basis for Eucerin and later, Nivea.
- The name of the company comes from Latin niveus/nivea/niveum, and it means “snow white”.
- In 1911 the first Nivea creme was introduced.
And here you can see all designs of Nivea Creme. Actually i can`t decide which is my favourite from these – they all are so simple yet so nice!
But now it`s time for my review! (what a long introduction)
I own the small tin, it`s 30ml. The reason why i have chosen the small one, is because i have dry skin, and sometimes it gets a bit itchy, so i need something, that can calm and moisturize my skin when i`m on the go. It`s very compact to put it into bag/makeup bag, so you don`t have to worry about it.
I am using this Creme almost daily, because it`s great moisturizer, and it keeps perfect balance – it adds a little shine to skin (which ir perfect, because as i have dry skin, i just can`t have naturally shining/glowing skin) and it calms my skin when it starts to get itchy. As many people, i was using it also when i was a child. I really like the consistence of Creme – you don`t need tons of it to get your skin moisturized.
After removing makeup my skin needs to be moisturized. And so i`m using Nivea Creme, because, as i have said many times, it calms skin.
I absolutely recommend this product to everyone, because it is made for all skin types (and it`s exceptionally perfect for dry skin) and it has it`s own historical value!
