REVIEW: NIVEA Care Intensive Nourishment Non-Greasy Cream

by - September 05, 2018

Hey guys! If you've read this blog for a while, you might already know that NIVEA is a brand that I always tend to come back to for hydration products for my hands and body. I've always had a soft spot for the brand - and that familiar scent - and I'm always up to try out their new products because I've had such success with their more classic ones. Recently the NIVEA Care Intensive Nourishment Non-Greasy Cream* has been living on my nightstand, a go to for before bed hydration, I'm excited to tell you guys about it!

Described as "a light, revolutionary cream with a hydrating complex that delivers intense nourishment without that greasy feeling", the NIVEA Care Intensive Nourishment Non-Greasy Cream* comes in an absolutely enormous 400ml tub that I know will definitely last even my very dry skin throughout the winter. It's recommended for use on face and body, but I personally prefer to reach for this as an all over body moisturizer, so before bed I've been applying it from shoulders to toes and really focusing it on my hands and feet, since they're the parts of me that need the most hydration.

Anyone who is familiar with NIVEA products is familiar with the scent of them and this product has it as well, though I would say that I think it might be a little bit lighter than some of the other products that I've tried from the brand. While I was expecting this to be a thick, heavy cream when I opened the tub - because it's what I'm used to finding in these large tubs - this is more of a silky, maybe almost whipped texture. It definitely has a richness to it, but it's much more lightweight than what I'm personally used to.

I really did love the promise of it sinking quickly into the skin and providing hydration without a heavy greasiness, because that's what actually tends to keep me from reaching for pots of cream and tending towards tubes of lotion. I love the texture of this and I do find that it strikes a nice balance between staying present while you rub it into the skin - a bit of a pampering action, in my opinion - and sinking into the skin so that it doesn't feel burdonsome. Within a couple of minutes of rubbing it into the skin, I find that this has sunk in and left my skin feeling really silky and hydrated. When used at night, I wake up with skin that feels really soft and hydrated, but really doesn't feel at all like there's residue or build up of product on the skin.

Overall, I think this is a really, really good cream and I have no doubt that it's going to be a go to for me during the winter. If you're someone who prefers or requires something really rich and thick or who likes a sweet or fruity scented body product, this might not be for you, but I think that's a matter of taste rather than performance. For me, the performance of this cream has really been fantastic. It sinks in quickly to the skin and immediately leaves it looking and feeling better and just generally gets the job done without any bells and whistles.

The NIVEA Care Intensive Nourishment Non-Greasy Cream* is available now!
