Consistency-Very thick ( a little goes a long way)
Performance- Excellent. Leaves skin feeling smooth and supple. I often left it on my face and allowed it to sink in on its own.
Would I purchase again? Yes. I used this as a face moisturizer. I think it makes a great moisturizer for those of all skin types, despite the high oil content. My skin was never excessively oily, and I have oily skin. Despite its consistency, Nivea Crème doesn't leave a heavy feeling on your skin. This has the potential to be an excellent everyday moisturizer, especially during fall and winter, as the skin remains moisturized for several hours.
