    Nivea Soft......I suffer from mega dry skin on my face, my legs and arms. E45 doesn't work on my legs and arms, I find it gets rid of my dry skin on my face, but leaves it looking really shiny, whereas the Nivea gets rid of it and doesn't leave my face shiny. It also leaves my arms and legs lovely and soft, all that for for £3.99! Fantastic!

    I love this too :T

    another Nivea thumbs up is their Q10 age defying handcream, for dry hands

    It's lovely and light ,non sticky & absorbs well yet moisturises much better than anything else I have used. I used to have sore cracked knuckes etc :( but this has sorted it out!

    I bought a trial 30ml size in Asda for like £1 odd,and i've had it ages now,as only need a small amount for good results
    and ideal size to keep in your handbag etc

    Hi, just out of interest regarding the Nivea Soft. I use E45 as I have eczema and sensitive skin but I do find the E45 too heavy for my face so end up buying a separate facial moisturiser. I think the Nivea soft is scented, if so, do you find it irritating to your skin? I was wondering whether or not to try it.

    For dry and sensitive skin I would recommend Garnier Soft cream:
    Cheapest at Asda (although could not find it on their website, they may be out of stock).
    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/Make_Up_And_Facial_Care/Garnier_Skin_Naturals_Soft_24hr_Nourishing_Day_Cream_50ml.html
    It's scented (rose) but it's very gentle.

    and here:
    http://www.lifeandlooks.com/product.cfm/product/11465/garnier_soft_essentials_replenishing_day_care_cream_-_50ml.html

    Obviously some people may still be allergic to its ingredients.

    Have you tried looking on ebay? I often get stuff on there. If I've tried a product before and liked it, I'm happy to buy it from ebay.

    I never even thought of that, and I do quite a lot of ebaying both buying and selling - duh! Thanks :-)

    Be careful though, they sell a lot of fake cosmetics on eBay.

    I always take Nivea Soft on holiday - it is a real multitasker. I use it as a moisturiser, night cream and body lotion, and a small tube lasts me two weeks.

    If you check the seller's feedback carefully, and only buy from UK sellers, you should be OK. I buy nearly all my cosmetics from eBay and have never had any problems.

    You can usually find sample sizes - the type that come as "gift with purchase" packs - which is very useful if you want to try something out but don't want to invest in a big size and then find out you don't like it.

    Hi Citygirl1.

    I have eczema and sensitive skin but find I am OK with Nivea, Nivea soft, Nivea deoderant & shower cream. I did find that some of the face / eye creams made me react around my eyes so these are probably best avoided.

    I hope that helps.
