I was always a little envious of my mothers skin who, at 92, has a wonderfully smooth skin, she is adamant that it is all due to having used Nivea most of her adult life. It never worked for me though, it just wasn't right, I had to resort to using special oils for my skin, it is extremely dry but needed more oil than water on it, but even the oils did not work properly, so I just resigned to the fact that I will never have a nice clear smooth skin.
On a recent trip to Germany I forgot to bring my oil with me, after a shower I needed to use something to cream (or oil) my face with, my skin literally hurts when it isn't fed, I smacked on some of my mates Nivea Soft and I haven't used anything else since. I kept her pot and when I got home dumped my oils. All dry irritating patches on my cheeks have gone, as has the red dry soreness around my nose and the dry cracked hands are now wonderfully smooth. Brilliant price as well.
Well done Nivea
