Nivea Reviews

A historical brand that has been kept in the cabinets of most households for nearly a century, Nivea's cult product Nivea Creme was launched in December 1911 and the brand has never looked back. Selling cosmetics, hand care, nail care, body care, mens and women's lines, and personal hygiene Nivea is one of the world's most trusted budget beauty brands.


Nivea Body My Silhouette ($11.90AUD) ★★★★
Nivea My Silhouette - 7 oz.Product type: firming gel to reduce the appearance of cellulite and to smooth and firm skin. Packaged in a plastic squeeze bottle with snap lid for easy use.
Purchased? Yes.
Wow...a product that works wonders! I decided to give this a go after reading the Trial Team reviews (they were all so impressive!) I have used this on and off for the past six weeks and the results are great! If I actually remember to do it every day my wobbly legs would be firm as steel because using this every second day has already toned my thighs and butt and made them feel so much firmer than before. I keep on telling my partner than I have been toning up!

Nivea Hand Age Control Creme Q10 Plus ($4.20AUD) ★★★
Nivea Nivea Anti-Age Q10 Plus Hand Cream 100 ml creamProduct type: hydrating anti-age hand cream packaged in plastic squeeze tube with flip top.
Purchased? Yes.
This product is a bargain! I have very dry, sensitive hands and the skin on my hands are always parched. This was recommended to me by a beauty blogger and while I like it, it has not assisted in the reduction of dryness as expected. The formula is a little watery and takes a while to absorb whereas I prefer a richer balm-like formula that absorbs quickly. However, for a quick fix this is your bargain beauty buy!

Nivea Hand Intensive Nourishing Cream ($4.90AUD)  ★★★★
Nivea Nivea Intensive Hand Cream 100 ml creamProduct type: hand cream. Packaged in a plastic squeeze tube with flip top lid.
Purchased? No.
My hands are soooo dry during winter months. They become sensitive, and they crack easily. Nivea  Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream has been fantastic. It is a non-greasy hand cream which is a rich cream with a watery texture that glides across skin and absorbs into all creases within minutes.
It feels comfortable on and the scent is very subtle which is great too. Because of its heavy duty hydrating properties I use cannot believe it has done so much all for under $5.00 this in the night time before I jump in to bed and I wake up with soft and hands – not the dry, cracked, uneven textured skin that I am used to by day. I Thank you for caring for my hands when I don’t have the time to!

Nivea Hand SOS Intensive Balm ($5.50AUD) ★★★
Product type: scented hydrating hand product with a balm like texture. Packaged in a white plastic squeeze tube with a flip top lid.
Purchased? No.
While this is a steal beauty buy, Nivea's SOS Intensive Balm is not their best hand cream and with so many hand creams under the brand's wing it makes me wonder why brands don't focus on the one fantastic product. Ok, now that aside SOS Intensive Balm is a rich hand balm that feels like it blends in to the skin without leaving a thick or tacky residue on the skin. The formula contains Panthenol which has been used for years in the medical field to heal wounds. While the hand balm claims to instantly relieve and soften dry chapped hands, which I agree with, my dry and chapped hands remained dry and chapped in the long term. For readers who have very dry / sensitive skin, I recommend trying an alternative in the drier months. I personally find the scent is a little too strong and a bit too floral in an artificial sense, whereas I prefer a more natural experience, but each to their own as scent is a very personal choice. Packaged in a fantastic easy to carry 50ml tube, SOS Intensive Balm is great for taking with you when you are on the go.

Nivea Lip Care in 'Cherry' & 'Pearl & Shine' ($4.00AUD) ★★★★
Nivea Lip Care A Kiss Of Flavor Stick, Cherry Tinted Lipstick Care - 0.17 OzProduct type: hydrating lip treatments packaged in a plastic wind-up tube.
Purchased? Yes.
Cherry & Pearl and Shine lip care sticks are nice products... I liked them but didn't love them The product is packaged nicely and Lip Care's formula feels good on the skin. While it smells nice I prefer more of a glossy product that lasts on the lips and because the Lip Care products are more matte, they ended up sitting in my makeup bag for so long that I had to dispose of them. A good cheapy buy.
Nivea Sun Light Feel Daily Face Veil SPF30 ($10.99AUD) ★★★★
Product type: lightweight fluid-creme moisturiser for the face containing an SPF30. Designed for all skin  types, packaged in a slimline white plastic tube with twist lid.
Purchased? No.
This little tube of goodness is perfect for just about all skin types because the formula is super lightweight, and hydrates without leaving an oily residue on the skin. I am actually really surprised that such a lightweight fluid can spread such a long way. The floral scent is soft and it does not upset my nostrils or skin. You will feel protected when wearing Light Feel Daily Face Veil - I certainly feel assured that my skin is protected with its SPF30 formula because most moisturisers on the market only contain an SPF of 15 plus their consistencies are usually much thicker too. There is one thing I want to grudge about (and it is a big grudge): the product does NOT contain ingredients in the Nivea cardboard box, nor does it contain ingredients on the back of the container and I am really disappointed by this because how are women to make informed decisions about chemicals and safe products if ingredients are not noted? I thought it was a requirement.

Nivea Visage Q10Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream ($18.99AUD) ★
Product type: eye moisturiser which has a rich creamy consistency.
Purchased? No.
When I was in need of a new eye cream this caught my eye but unfortunately Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream also irritated my eyes and left themn puffy, red and sore for the two weeks I used it. The consistency is quite rich and creamy while the brand claims that it is light, so the false claim lead to my irritated eyes, plus it did not blend in to the skin. I usually pat eye cream around the orbital and brow bones but this one was so rich I had to almost rub it in to blend and if I do not apply it in front of the mirror then I end up with white cream residue on my skin. As much as I wanted to try this, Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream was unsuitable.

NIVEA Visage Anti-Wrinkle 10Plus Refreshing Eye Roll-On ($18.99AUD) ★★★★★
Product type: refreshing and cooling roll-on eye product designed to hydrate and reduce fatigue. Packaged in a stick-pen with a metallic roller ball applicator on the nib.
Purchased? No.
Wow, I am super impressed with Anti-Wrinkle 10Plus Refreshing Eye Roll-On. Seriously, if you had eyes as sore, tired and sensitive as mine, you would understand why.  On a good day my eyes feel hot and dry and each day eye drops are required so the metal roller ball applicator on this little beauty is just so relieving. I could seriously sit there for ten minutes massaging it around each eye because the puffiness and dry feeling fades away. While I would still advise to use an eye cream on alternative occasions and keep this for when eyes need a cooling pick-me-up, the choice is yours. The metal roller ball also works to massage the eye area to improve circulation and help to reduce dark circles. The formula supports the natural CoEnzyme Q10 found in skin to reduce fine lines, delay the development of new ones and supply antioxidants. I love it!
Nivea Visage Anti-Wrinkle Q10Plus Tinted Day Cream 50ml ($19.00AUD) ★★
Product type: tinted facial moisturiser with sun protection containing powerful antioxidants. Packaged in a plastic squeeze tube with a twist lid.
Purchased? No.
While Nivea is good value for money, I am not sold on tinted moisturisers. Period. Sure it hydrates and protects from the sun but Anti-Wrinkle Q10Plus Tinted Day Cream does not even the skin's appearance or offer any coverage like it claims to. Although suited to all skin types, I generally find that teens and women with mature skin enjoy the benefits of a tinted moisturiser but none-the-less the sheer coverage is not visible on contact with the skin. The scent is strong and a little too artificial for my liking. The consistency is lightweight and blends in to the skin with ease leaving a slightly matte finish on the skin's surface.

Nivea Visage Vital Moisturising Cleansing Wipes 23pk ($8.50AUD) ★★★★★
Product type: cleansing facial wipes designed to cleanse and hydrate skin while removing makeup. Designed for, but not limited to mature skin types. Packaged in plastic packet with resealable lid.
Purchased? No.
Since my all-time favourite facial cleansing wipes were discontinued a year ago, I have been on the look out for another product to take its place and I think I have found them! Nivea Visage Vital Moisturising Wipes are fantastic because not only do they cleanse skin but they work hard to gently remove all types of makeup without drying out or irritating the skin. TIP: After cleansing your skin, rinse out the wipe a few times and remove the formula from the skin to grab the last traces of makeup. The formula's ingredients are relatively safe and each wipe contains Vitamin F and Silk Protein to soften and strengthen skin. The cleansing formula is effective and great for sensitive skin like my own which has not experienced any irritation. The recyclable packaging is lightweight, easy to carry, easy to travel with and is overall an excellent product.

I love the old Nivea Lip products, the pearl and shine is one of the best, also like the ones in the little tubes as well, been around for like ages, haha. I have not tried the Goodbye Cellulite Gel but I have the My Silhouette and find it to be excellent, it really helped me with my post baby cellulite, well I didn't really even get any cellulite because I was using this gel right through my pregnancy :)
