Nivea cream on face side effects

Nivea is a revolutional skincare brand that has been in existence for over 100 years with excellent product reviews and testimonials..

They invented modern skincare products with natural and 100 percent free of animal-derived ingredients which helps to nourish the skin, making it look healthy and glowing.

Today, Nivea is now used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin, as well as minor skin irritations such as rashes and skin burns. 

But is nivea cream good for your face? Have you ever thought of getting any negative results if you eventually used the product on your face?

Can I use Nivea cream on my face? The main answer to this question is that you will never experience side effects of nivea cream on the face if you do not have an hyper-sensitive skin. This is because Nivea contains up to 99% naturally derived ingredients with zero hydroquinone.

I have used the Nivea Men Deep Action on my face for about 3 weeks expecting to see harsh results but i didn’t. What I noticed was that no changes were done to my face since the cream (Nivea Men Deep Action) is not meant for the face.

Although you might experience some drawbacks if you fail to use the cream appropriately. One mistake to avoid when purchasing any Nivea product is purchasing a body cream in place of a face cream. 

Certain Nivea products are designed specifically for the face and not for the entire body and vice versa. If your skin is extremely sensitive, this can sometimes result in the effects of nivea cream on your face.

And moreover, the face is just a delicate area of skin, it should be handled with care. Don’t be like me. Haha.

Also, your skin type matters a lot. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you might experience breakouts and blackheads. This is because Nivea cream is a thick and heavy moisturizer that can clog pores.

Furthermore, If you’re prone to allergic reactions you should be cautious of how much portion you apply to your face. In rare cases, you may be allergic to one or more ingredients in Nivea cream. 

Nivea cream lacks sufficient sunscreen, it will not protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. To protect your skin, apply a separate sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 if you use Nivea cream during the day.

In general, To check for any negative reactions, apply a small amount of the cream to a small patch to your skin and wait 24 hours. If you don’t experience any side effects, you can use Nivea cream on your face as directed.

However, to maximize the potential of any Nivea face cream, there are some procedures you must abide with and they are listed below.

How to apply nivea cream on face

Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt and oil then gently pat your face dry with a soft towel.

Take a small amount of cream onto your fingertips. You only need a little bit, as a little goes a long way.

Rub the cream between your fingertips to warm it up, then apply it to your face using circular motions. Start with your forehead, then move down to your cheeks, nose, and chin. 

Use a gentle upward swipe to massage the cream into your skin. This can help improve circulation and promote a healthy glow.

Let the cream absorb into your skin for a few minutes before applying makeup or going to bed.

That’s it! Applying Nivea cream on your face is a simple and easy way to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.


If you experience itching, or red face after using the cream, stop using it and seek medical attention.
