This is an emollient, oil-rich moisturizer that’s an OK but unexciting option for dry skin. The inclusion of fragrance and a fragrant plant make this unsuitable for sensitive skin, despite the claim on the label. Nivea included a token amount of antioxidants, but their activity will deteriorate once the product is opened because those ingredients break down in the presence of air. In this case, saving money won’t save your skin.
Gives all the moisturizing and smoothing elements dry to sensitive skin needs during the night. The rich formula nourishes the skin intensively during the night and provides it with needed moisture and supports the skin regeneration process during the night.

Nivea is a globally known brand owned by Beiersdorf, the same company behind department-store brand La Prairie and drugstore mainstay Eucerin. Among those three brands, Nivea's product selection is the weakest (which isn't saying much, because none of these lines have much of anything to offer skin). For Nivea, uninspired formulas abound, presenting limited options unless you have normal to dry skin, and even those have exceptionally inelegant formulas. The enduring popularity of this line has more to do with advertising and perhaps tradition (it has been around a long time) than with what any researcher would consider state-of-the-art.
In mid-2010 Nivea re-launched most of their Visage (facial care) products on the web site drugstore.com. These products present a few well formulated, inexpensive options that are worth your attention.For more information about Nivea, owned by Beiersdorf, call (800) 227-4703 or visit www.nivea.com.
