Quick Update

Just want to update everyone on the 'Cream Cheese Face Cream' aka Nivea Creme.

IT'S DOPE. I apply about a nickel-sized dollop every night before bed, and I SWEAR, my pores look smaller and my skin looks and feels smoother and clearer in the morning...even on four hours of sleep! Right after it's applied of course it makes your face look like you've been doing naughty things with a can of PAM, but once it sinks in, your skin will feel amazing!

It's a little hard to blend, so like Gee suggested, I rub it between my fingers to warm it up a bit, then smooth it on my entire face. On days when I hate my life and my job, I dab a generous amount under my eyes. LOL. No, I am not a miserable twat, I just have a hectic job.

But seriously, I thought I'd break out from this stuff, but I didn't! I think it's safe to say it works on combination AND sensitive skin. Just don't use this stuff if you're allergic to squalene oil (it's an organic compound derived from shark liver oil...mmm YUM).

A direct quote from Wikipedia:

"Squalene is used in cosmetics as a natural moisturizer. It penetrates the skin quickly, does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin and blends well with other oils and vitamins."

Have any of you tried Nivea? What do you think? Tell MEEEEEE!!!

Re: Edit
I'd like to send a virtual hug and shout out to the wonderful Gee, whom if you didn't know, writes awesome, reliable reviews on affordable products. Thank you for turning me on to Nivea. Me and my (smaller) pores are thanking you. :)

I got it and use it on my neck. I LOVE IT!!!! It's really really awesome.

Gee said...

I told you it was DOPE! haha..

No, really, I'm glad you like it!!! I think my pores are smaller from it too. does make your face look like a grease ball, but once it absorbs, you've got awesomely soft hydrated skin!

Eat your heart out Creme de La Mer!!
