Best Pick: NIVEA Sun Creme Care UV Cream

I am going to keep this short and sweet. When it came to the new NIVEA Sun Creme Care UV Cream it was “love at first wear”. So rich and velvety yet fresh-feeling, such a silky-slip to the application — you would never guess that this is a standalone, dedicated sunscreen with SPF50+ PA++++ protection. I could happily use it as a regular moisturiser. It’s nicely moisturising for those with normal to drier skin but has a pleasingly skin-like finish. Quick to sink in and not at all greasy, but you definitely feel the effects and it doesn’t interfere with makeup.

The “Creme Care” in NIVEA Sun Creme Care UV Cream comes from the fact that it has Nivea Creme’s signature blend of jojoba oil and squalane in the base. (Yes, the famed multipurpose cream in the blue tin has a different formula in Japan!) It keeps the skin perfectly hydrated and I can apply it as an eye cream without stinging or irritation.

Everyone should be using UV protection on their hands daily (if you want them to stay in pretty good shape) and this is what I’ve been keeping in my bag. The portable tube is very travel-friendly (its cap will not twist off on its own when rolling around in the bag, unlike many standard hand creams!) and it doesn’t make hands greasy or slippery.

I really can’t think of anything I don’t like about this daily sunscreen/moisturiser-with-SPF. It’s just excellent. You can find it online at HERE — it’s US$17.80+ or Rakuten Global Market have it for ¥697 (approx. US$6.16) HERE.
