I've bought some Nivea in the blue pot. Tell me how to use it! Can I really take makeup off with it? AND use it as a face and body moisturiser? All tips appreciated TIA Grin

I use it as nightcream. It’s very greasy but has improved my coarse looking skin.

I use it on my forehead, which is what gets driest around this time of year. It doesn’t agree with the rest of my face :)

After visiting a frined in hospital and the lady in the next bed was 82 and had used it for years I am going to invest in vast quantaties and slap it on face and body and hope that my skin goes like hers . I sware she looked 60 !

I only use it on my horribly sensitive and often very dry skin. Watching for inspiration!!

I use it as moisturiser on my face and neck, but I have really dry skin!

Also good as handcream. Never tried it as a cleanser, occasionally used it as a body moisturiser. It suits me, but may be too greasy for others.

i’ve used it as a night cream since i was 13 and my grandma bought me my first pot. her, her mum, and my mum have used it for years and they all look a years younger than their actual age. maybe it’s just good genes - but i’ll never give up on the nivea just in case! i also use it for my dry knees and elbows.

Thanks for your comments everyone - I have heard a few stories about it being a family tradition too!

I use it on my nose (in the evening) when I've got a cold to stop it getting dry and sore, it's a fab intensive moisturiser but I wouldn't slather it on my face during the day as it's too greasy for my skin and doesn't absorb well.

I use it on my feet, especially on holiday where we tend to walk for miles. Slather it all over and put socks on - it's wonderful!

I use it as a primer for my foundation. It’s quite heavy which means it mixes better with my liquid foundation than thinner mouisturisers do

Ooh a primer!! That's interesting! Shock

I've used it for years. Thick layer at night before bed. I use it as a day cream too but only a light application and you do have to wait for it to "sink in" before applying make up. I have very good skin for my age, no lines at all (am eyeing 50).

Night cream here too, family tradition (and older mum with great skin) too. As well, when my son blew a large bubble with sticky gum that got all over his face, wiping it with Nivea got it off right away where scrubbing wouldn't.

I only use it at winter for my dry skin.

I use it on my face as a moisturiser and to take my eye make up off.
