NIVEA Face Essentials for every skin

Find Your Match

What’s the best cream for your skin type?

Life gets complicated. Let’s keep your skin care simple. Our inclusive range of NIVEA Essentials is designed to nourish four unique skin types based on their most important needs. Use the arrows below to find your match.
skin types

Normal Skin

Normal

We all have a different definition of “normal”. But when it comes to skin types, normal is characterized by visibly soft skin with fine pores and rosy complexion. It’s the lowest maintenance skin type (lucky you!) but still requires consistent care to maintain moisture and keep up that beautifully bouncy appearance. So, don’t skip out on daily exfoliation to remove dead cells and clean out pores.

For DRY SKIN

Dry

Rough, flaky, dried out skin is one of the most common problems out there — and it often leads to frustratingly itchy, less elastic skin. Hydration is the key here. The naturally moisturizing ingredients inside NIVEA Essentials help replenish and protect your skin’s outer barrier to reduce that tight, irritated feeling. You can also help dry skin by following a healthy diet that includes plenty of drinking water during the day.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive

There’s nothing wrong with being a sensitive person, but it does create some extra challenges in the skincare department. Since it’s more vulnerable to external stressors (i.e. heat, humidity, diet, allergies) sensitive skin tends to get tight, itchy, and red due to dryness. Protecting your moisture barrier is key, and so is sticking to simple, natural ingredients + fragrance-free solutions.

Combination skin

Combination

There’s nothing wrong with being a sensitive person, but it does create some extra challenges in the skincare department. Since it’s more vulnerable to external stressors (i.e. heat, humidity, diet, allergies) sensitive skin tends to get tight, itchy, and red due to dryness. Protecting your moisture barrier is key, and so is sticking to simple, natural ingredients + fragrance-free solutions.

Discover Our Ingredients

Shea butter for Dry Skin Face Essentials

SHEA BUTTER

Shea oil and butter both originate from the shea nut trees of West Africa. These trees are scattered throughout the wooded savanna and their nuts have been used for centuries to create the intensively moisturising formula of shea butter.

Aloe Vera Extract for Normal Skin Face Essentials

VITAMIN E from MAGNOLIA EXTRACT

Magnolia extract is an effective anti-inflammatory and strong anti-wrinkle ingredient. Taken from the bark of the magnolia plant, it contains high amounts of the organic compounds magnolol and honokiol, which are said to be up to 1000 times more potent in antioxidants than vitamin E alone.

Grape Seed extract for Sensitive Face Essentials

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Due to its antimicrobial properties and ability to strengthen Vitamin E + C production, grape seed extract can make your skin feel softer, more elastic, and help even out your overall tone.

Aloe Vera Extract for Combination Skin Face Essentials

ALOE VERA

Beyond its well-known ability to soothe sunburned skin for deep moisturizing relief, aloe also has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce irritation and aid in the production of new skin cells. Plus, it contains a large number of antioxidants that help strengthen your skin's elasticity and hydration levels.
