The unsung hero that is Nivea Creme

Nivea crème has been around since 1911 and since then it hasn’t stopped being a beauty staple. It is an all over beauty crème that can be used as many different ways as there are parts of the body. It is one of the cheapest products on the market yet it has beaten products ten times the price in tests. So what can you do with it?

Moisturiser

You can apply is as a day or night cream in place of your fancy moisturiser or serum. It reduces appearance of wrinkles, redness, scarring and dryness.

Cleanser

As it is oil based you can use it with water to remove your makeup

Lip Balm

Apply it to lips if you are caught out without a lip balm. It does the job just as well as most medium strength balms.

Body Lotion

Apply it to any part of the body that needs extra care. If you have dry, cracked heels, cover your feet in it and apply a sandwich bag over the top and just let it soak in while you watch TV or overnight for brand new feet in the morning.

Cuticle cream

Applying this to your cuticles heals them and can prevent infections caused by hangnails

And apparently…

According to the youtube account macshadowcombos you can even use it as a polish for leather goods such as bag and shoes. She demonstrates how to uses a dab of cream to get rid of a scuff on a shoe and it’s like magic.

I just felt like it needed a whole post to itself because it’s often underrated and for £1 for 50ml you can’t go wrong. Especially as it could competently replace several items in your makeup bag.
