We review: NIVEA Creme Care facial cleansers
A good facial cleanser isn’t just a pleasure to use – it’s also effective. Day in, day out, it effortlessly removes dirt, grime and makeup, and leaves your skin feeling soft and comfortable. Anything less, and it ain’t worth your time (or money).
Suffice to say, the beautyheaven team takes the pursuit of the best face wash very seriously – which means we’re always open to trying a newbie (or three). Enter the NIVEA Creme Care cleansing range, featuring a gentle face wash, lotion and wipes that are formulated to simultaneously cleanse and prevent our skin from drying out.

NIVEA Creme Care Cleansing Cream Wash
bh’s Beth says:
“My greatest concern when it comes to facial cleanser is avoiding that tight, stripped feeling they can sometimes give when you wash them off. Yes, I want my skin to be moisturiser-ready, but not to the extent that it’s crying out for hydration. NIVEA Creme Care Cleansing Cream Wash definitely solved this problem: Its creamy formula is really hydrating and gentle on my skin. It also does its job, effectively removing dirt and grime, as well as my everyday BB cream. For heavier makeup, I would probably use it in conjunction with a makeup remover, though.
The formula is soap-free and doesn’t foam up upon contact with water. Because of this, I probably used slightly more product than was necessary, because I like to spread my cleanser evenly and generously over every inch of my complexion before I wash it off. The scent is the classic NIVEA Creme scent – it’s unmistakeable and definitely brings back memories. All in all, I would describe this as a gentle, everyday cleanser that does the job, while also caring for my skin.”
NIVEA Creme Care Cleansing Lotion
bh’s Kate says:
“Over the past few years, I have become seriously dedicated to my skincare regimen. Cleansing, toning, serums, face oils, exfoliators, moisturisers – I do it all. So of course, I was more than willing to try the NIVEA Creme Care Cleansing Lotion. The first thing I noticed was that it really feels more like a moisturiser than a cleanser, which took some getting used to – but the richer texture feels so nice and gentle on my skin, making it the perfect addition to my indulgent skincare routine.
It can be applied to the face with either fingertips or a cotton pad, which is also perfect for those days when I'm running late and just need to get super clean, super fast. I simply squeeze a small amount onto a cotton pad, wipe it over my face, rinse with water and I'm done – no mess! It's possible to use cotton pads to wipe away the cleanser as well, but I found that when I wore more makeup, it was more effective to use water to remove it fully (and also saves me precious cotton pads!).
All up, I loved this gentle cleansing lotion – it really does feel so luxurious once you get used to the texture of the lotion! I would recommend this to anyone who loves giving their skin that extra little bit of TLC.”
NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes
bh’s Astrid says:
“If you were to ask me what my all-time favourite beauty product is, I'd tell you with absolute conviction that it's face wipes. I've been using them to cleanse my face since my early teens, when I first discovered makeup. My mum brought a packet home from the supermarket one day and I've never looked back. I always have several packets with me at all times, and I keep spares in my drawers at home, in the office and in my handbag – they're my go-to. I consider myself a bit of an expert on face wipes and I'd say I'm a pretty good judge of which ones are worth buying, and which aren't.
In all honesty, the NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Wipes have surpassed my expectations. They’re incredibly thorough in cleansing my skin, and I've also noticed how much brighter my complexion looks. With one swipe, I can remove all the grime from the day off my face, and what's left is clean, clearer, softer skin. And though I'm not particularly sensitive to smell, these wipes feature the signature NIVEA Creme scent, so even those with the fussiest of noses will love them!”
