Nivea Offer!

Happy 4th of July!

As you may know by now I'm always on the lookout for bargains! Food, clothes, skincare - if it's a worthwhile offer you can be sure I'm there!

So whilst in my local Sainsbury's the other day I happened to notice that selected Nivea products (from skin and bodycare) are on offer at half price. I love half price offers!  

Honestly there were so many to choose from but finally I ended up buying the following two - Nivea Rescue and Care SOS Body Lotion (250ml) reduced from £3.49 to £1.74 and Nivea Skin Creme (200ml) reduced from £3.35 to £1.67.

I'll use the 'Rescue and Care' lotion primarily as a hand cream because it's really moisturising and easily and quickly absorbed.  I go through so many tubes of hand cream that it's good to have a 'large bottle of moisture' that I can use liberally.   My hands are eczema prone and if they get too dried out the skin cracks and itches and can become infected - not nice - so anything that puts the moisture back into them and helps it stay there is worth a shot.  I understand that the 'Dexpanthenol' is a good source of moisture and aids hydration (hence the 'rescue and care') so hopefully will be beneficial.

The pot of  'Creme' just takes me on a 'trip down memory lane', I seem to remember it being on my mum's dressing table years ago so it's obviously stood the 'test of time!'  It's a good all rounder and is suitable 'wherever skin needs care'.  This will be a good night-time hand (and elbow) cream.  Big pot next to the bed, slap it on and 'bob's your uncle'! It's really thick and creamy (as you can see in the pics) and just smells clean  and comforting (and familiar!). 


Nice blob!

I understand this offer is on at Sainsbury's until next Monday (9 July) so if you fancy any half-price Nivea you know where to go! (I'm actually going to pop back now and buy a large pot of 'Creme' for my mum!).

Can anybody recommend anything else from the Nivea range while the offers on?

Over and out girls!

  1. Nivea creme makes an amazing lipbalm! Not in public though because it does turn your lips white!x

  2. Never knew that - thankyou! That could be one huge pot of lipbalm then! x

  3. My Dad still uses that Nivea Creme to this day! We've had it in my parents house as long as I can remember!

  4. It's definitely a multi-tasker! Going to slap it on right now! :)

  5. I can smell that nivea creme as I read this post .... my mum used it too. Love it! x

  6. I know it's such an 'old timer'- my little girl wants a pot as well now! x
