I crave moisturizing products for my eye area. In these financially challenging times, I began using a beloved classic.

I heard about German-formula Nivea through beauty forums and message boards. Some even say it’s a good substitute for Creme de La Mer.

All I know is, it makes a fab eye cream. I use this at night. I bought it for a great price at Parthenon Foods.

If you have dry skin, this would be a great facial moisturizer.

Apparently, there is a difference between this version and the Mexican formula. I haven’t tried the Mexican version, but the German formula seems to be preferred by the many people I meet on beauty forums and message boards.

Nivea is a very old and beloved brand. Marilyn Monroe was said to have used the lotion.

How have your experiences with Nivea gone?
