Hi there, my darlings! So, I've just completed a rather taxing contractual position, one that completely flipped my night owl routine upside down, and I'm in some serious need of a little TLC. Now, when it comes to pampering myself, I tend to reach for the tried and true. But every so often, a brand goes and surprises me by introducing me to new products that I had no idea even were on the market. I recently had just such an experience with  Nivea! Apparently, Nivea has quite the extensive line of skincare now and isn't at all just about their iconic, little tubs of hand cream. Who knew?! I sure didn't. Keep reading to find out what I've discovered!


The original Creme in its classic tin.

NIVEA® Creme is a skin care classic that provides protective care and deep nourishment for dry skin. First introduced in 1911, NIVEA® Creme continues to win the hearts of Canadians and moms worldwide. It's the world’s no. 1 skin care cream with over 100 million jars sold each year.

  • Mild formula suitable for the whole family, including kids
  • All-purpose cream for all skin types, even sensitive skin
  • Reduces the look and feel of rough, dry skin
  • Great for body, face, hands and dry spots like elbows, knees
  • Does not clog pores

OK, it may be comforting for some of you, as it was to me, that Nivea still does make their signature tins of hand cream and if you have ever used it, I'm happy to report that the formula remains pretty much unchanged. It's a thick, no, very thick cream that's ideally suited for very dry skin. Normally, I have combination skin but certain areas, like my cuticles, elbows and ankles, took a beating this first Canadian winter and are all but crying out for extra moisture. This does the trick! Just don't use it on your feet at night, if you tend to get overheated quickly, like I do!


Get smooth skin with no sticky feel.

Can’t stand the sticky feeling of body lotions or find the time to moisturize? Now there’s something new! NIVEA® Smooth Replenishing In-Shower Body Lotion for dry skin. Find it in the body lotion aisle.

  • Conveniently moisturize your skin in the shower: Apply after washing and rinse off
  • The lotion, with Shea Butter, is formulated to be quickly and effectively absorbed by wet skin
  • Moisturize instantly with no sticky feel - No need to wait for the lotion to absorb into your skin
  • Leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and moisturized for 24hr+
  • Dermatologically tested

I think I was the most excited about this product. An in-shower moisturizer from Nivea?! Sounded like the ultimate lazy-girl dream product. I find putting on lotion and massaging it in such a chore that a lotion that you could smooth on and rinse off while in the shower sounded too good to be true. And it kinda is. The lotion keeps your skin hydrated for a very short period of time and the super slippery bathtub/shower that inevitably results, which you then have to clean out, makes it really not worth it at all. Maybe it would work better in the Summer, when you only need something really light.


This versatile, lightweight 2-in-1 moisturizer and primer is the perfect non-greasy base for every look.

2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer Normal Skin. If you’re on the lookout for stunning, even-looking skin that leaves your skin feeling moisturized and ready for the next steps in your beauty routine, this long-lasting formula is just what you’re looking for.

  • Quick absorption feels light and refreshing
  • Innovative gel-cream texture
  • Enriched with vitamin E and natural lotus extract
  • Dermatologically tested

Multi-tasking skincare products are my favorite! I love that this is a moisturizer AND a primer in one, so I can skip a step. Plus, I love the gel texture which absorbs quickly and easily into my skin. This is going to be perfect under my foundation, particularly during the Summer months! Good job on this one, Nivea!


Pamper your lips and make them glow with a luminous pearly pink shine for silky smooth and velvety soft lips!

NIVEA Pearl & Shine lip balm provides long-lasting moisture to soften and condition lips, leaving your lips more beautiful than ever. The unique formula enriched with pearl and silk extracts, shea butter and natural avocado and jojoba oils instantly melts into your lips and keeps them moisturized for 24 hours*. Enjoy beautiful shimmery and pleasantly soft lips! *clinically tested

  • Leaves your lips irresistibly smooth
  • Protects lips against dryness
  • Brings out the natural beauty of lips with a pearly shimmer
  • Contains Pearl and Silk Extracts
  • Dermatologically tested

Unfortunately, this just didn't do it for me. I find it hard enough to find a pink that flatters my skin tone but a icy, pale baby pink with pearl frostiness? That just does NOT work for my skin tone. I would be interested to try some of their other lip balms, though!

3-IN-1 CLEANSING WIPES ($5.00 USD/$7.00 CAD)

Enriched with NIVEA lotion and Vitamin E, these wipes thoroughly cleanse and effectively remove make-up and waterproof mascara, leaving your skin feeling refreshed.

At the end of a long and busy day, it can sometimes be hard to find time to look after your skin properly. Face wipes are a convenient way to cleanse your face without taking up too much of your time. No spills and no mess also make wet facial cleansing wipes the perfect choice when you’re on the go — in your purse or your gym bag. 3-in-1 Refreshing Cleansing Wipes for normal skin, Enriched with Vitamin E.

  • Deeply cleanse and purify your face, neck and eyes
  • Maintains your skin's natural moisture balance
  • Effectively remove make-up and waterproof mascara
  • Leave skin looking healthy and beautiful

These, I absolutely love! I'm a huge fan of wipes as it is but I find these to be just lovely. The wipes themselves are really soft and gentle on the skin while still doing a pretty good job of removing those stubborn traces of makeup that your micellar water or liquid remover leaves behind. Also, I love the classic Nivea scent to these!

So there you have it, my darlings! Nivea products are available at fine retailers and mass merchandisers nationwide, such as your local CVS, Target and Ulta, across the US.

For us Canadians, Nivea products are found in a wide range of store stores, such as your local Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart.
