The product

Skin in desperate need of long-lasting hydration but can’t abide by thick occlusive formulas that clog pores and disrupt your makeup? 

NIVEA’s latest day cream - NIVEA Nourishing Moisturising Day Cream SPF15 - boasts an ultra-lightweight texture, while promising a thirst-quenching amount of hydration with a dry to the touch finish. Doubling as a primer and including a touch of SPF, this budget-friendly option is looking like your new favourite daily moisturiser.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this lightweight daily hydrator to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent NIVEA Nourishing Moisturising Day Cream SPF15 to a panel of women aged 35 to 44 with dry and sensitive skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about NIVEA Nourishing Moisturising Day Cream SPF15.

The fast-absorbing formula: Members loved the fast-drying and absorbing formula, meaning they were able to apply an ample amount of moisturiser. Many found it provided  lasting hydration throughout the day without their skin feeling greasy or heavy.

The way it wore under makeup: Our reviewers found the moisturiser played well with their other skin care and base makeup products, with a number of members saying they’d happily use the moisturiser in lieu of a primer on no-makeup makeup days.

The added SPF protection: A number of reviewers remarked that they loved the inclusion of a light SPF to support sun protection and had even used the moisturiser on their kids for balmier days.

The verdict

“Nivea Nourishing Day Cream SPF 15 was such a soft cream to absorb. It was a good primer for my foundation and nice as a moisturiser on its own. I would purchase again as I found this was suitable for my children too.”

“I am all about convenience these days juggling motherhood and work life so to find a simple product that I can chuck in my bag is perfect! It has a smooth, lightweight texture and leaves my skin feeling more than nourished.I combine this with my daily BBcream and/or foundation and it works like a dream. Highly recommended if you are looking for a simple, easy to use, easily accessible moisturiser with the added benefit of a SPF15.”

“Easy to use tube and easy to apply, creamy not greasy and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling either, I only needed to use a small amount and it absorbs nicely. It has a sweet smell that isn’t sickly or overpowering. My skin felt fresh and soft afterwards. I would definitely use the Nivea nourishing moisturising day cream again and recommend it to friends and family. It’s a great day cream for the price.”
