I was in search of a lotion that would soothe my husband's dry, cracked skin. We live in the Nevada desert and he has a terrible time with his hands, especially with Covid and the constant washing of his hands and use of hand sanitizer. I had several other lotions I had tried but nothing did the trick. He still had cracked and bleeding hands. Mine weren't as bad, but I had constantly dry hands, legs, and feet. When I saw the new 72 Hour Moisture for dry to very dry skin, I thought it would be a waste of time and money but I would give it a shot. We were both astounded at how well it worked. Finally his hands have stopped bleeding and cracking, and actually feel soft to the touch. And my own skin is soft and supple. Another point of mention is that I am very sensitive to scents and many products I cannot use because the scent is too strong and causes a bad reaction, i.e. headaches, congestion, etc. However, this product doesn't bother me at all. My dog has sensitivities to scents too and she is not bothered by this product. We immediately bought two more from the same Amazon vendor so we can have them in the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Great product. Great value. And Nivea, a name you can trust.
This is a decent moisturizer. It absorbs into my skin easily, and leaves it feeling soft the next day (sticky when you first apply). However, there's no way that it lasts 72 hours - I start feeling dry in less than a day, especially on my hands, knees, and elbows. I reapply every day accordingly. The scent is pretty mild as well.
I was looking for new lotion and decided to go with this NIVEA one since I use the in shower lotion on a regular basis as well. The bottle is nice and large, has a pump, and dispenses a good amount. I was kind of surprised using it for the first time as I'm used to very thin, normal lotion that you just apply on and rub around. With this one, you can feel the moisturizing from the get go and it's a very strong layering so a small dab actually has quite a lot of coverage.
I have used a similar product from a competitor and been pleased so I figured i would give this one a try.
Everybody has that one old person in their life that has gone completely numb to smells and seemingly uses the entire bottle of perfume daily. You can still smell their perfume several minutes after they have left a room. If you have ever thought “I would like to smell like that person” then this lotion is for you. The scent is so overwhelming that i tried to return it immediately and it is not eligible for returns. WTF amazon, i get that you don't want this smelly stuff either but part of the deal of amazon is taking care of your customers. If the scent wasn't so offensive i could review how well it worked but I couldn’t bring myself to use it long enough.
I grew up with Nivea lotion in a tub. It's been a mainstay in European immigrant households for generations. I seldom find creams as moisturizing as the ultra-dense glass jars provide (excepting Bag Balm, which is a nuclear solution if ever your skin resembles the surface of Mars). The super humectant and greasy feel of it; however, is a downer. I'm often skeptical of lotions that promise 24-48-72 hour relief, because that seems more a marketing tactic than anything which could be quantified by any data--everyone is different, after all. For me? This is a lotion that lasts me from morning to evening, but given that I have extremely dry skin, that's incredible. Unlike many lotions that will relieve the tightness and outermost dryness of your skin, this one feels like it penetrates deeper layers, not just moisturizing, but *hydrating*. It's not a light formula, but for what it does, this product absorbs well. If you've got fifteen minutes to spare after a shower, but before you throw your clothes on, you ought to be set. Bear in mind, this is a lotion for people like me whose skin needs water like a hosta plant in Death Valley. If you have normal-to-combination-dry skin, you're likely to have some greasing issues. For that, the Nivea Breathable lotion might be a better option. It sinks in quick, and comes in great scents. As a final note, this lotion doesn't smell like much, but it does come with a faint powdery waft if you insist on pressing your nose to your arm. Those who are ultra-sensitive to fragrances, head's up on that.
I bought this because it said no scent but it has a faint eucalyptus smell which gives me a headache. It feels greasy and has an oily shine. I am 58 with dry skin and this oily sheen lasted about 4 hours. It feels like I have another layer of skin on top of mine. Not happy with this purchase for me. It may work for others whose hands are less dry.
This lotion is amazing! My hands have been so bad from constant washing that they would just crack and start bleeding. First time putting this lotion on I saw an immediate improvement and it lasted all the way through until the next morning (I put it on late in the evening). You don’t need a ton of this as it does not soak in super fast. Once it does absorb though it isn’t greasy. It also didn’t burn, which a lot of lotion does since my skin is so raw. I can believe how well this works for the price. I’m so happy!!
I purchased 3 bottles of Nivea lotion and one bottle of the Intense healing lotion,,once a day for the intense,then apply the regular throughout the day. Those freezing cold days could not touch my skin,or dry it out,,i suggest applying the intense after a shower/bath,when you are nice and warm,,it soaks in,,then use the regular lotion thru the day,,i keep one bottle in my bedroom,one in the bathroom and one by the couch,,no issues with sore or cracked skin after weeks of cold weather; i am sold on Nivea,,,i will buy more
This is by far the best lotion I have used. I am a man and I have very hard water at home so my skin is always dry. No lotion seemed to work very well I’ve tried just about all the top brands. I even had another version of this brand that didn’t work well. This lotion is very moisturizing and it last a very long time. It’s not greasy at all and has a pleasant smell. I would definitely recommend this if you have dry skin or hard water issues.
