Nivea India recently launched their hand cream in a total of 3 variants. These are Glycerin and Aloe Vera (dry hands), Glycerin and Beeswax (all skin types) and Glycerin and Olive (very dry skin). I picked up the first one from the above and have been using it daily. So let’s get started with the review and see if this product met my expectations. Keep on reading…
What The Brand Claims: Dry and stretchy hands bothering you? Try Nivea Refreshing Hand Cream with Glycerin and Aloe Vera. Restores lost moisture and refreshes your hands to make them feel soft and smooth.
Contains the innovative Deep Restore Serum which gets absorbed quickly without any greasiness. Available in 2 more variants.
Packaging: The hand cream comes in a simple yet beautiful packaging. The tube is made of somewhat thin plastic and has a top cap. All the vital information such as date of manufacturing, date of expiry, ingredient list, MRP and net product quantity is clearly mentioned. Overall, the packaging is attractive, convenient-to-use as well as travel friendly.
My Experience With The Product: Nivea Glycerin And Aloe Vera Hand Cream is white in color and has an incredibly smooth formula. It effortlessly spreads on the skin and blends in almost instantly. It effectively hydrates the hands and makes them soft and smooth. The formula is absolutely lightweight and non-greasy and does not leave behind any greasiness at all.
I feel this hand cream is a good product to keep the hands soft and healthy, but it won’t do much to heal very dry or flaky hands. Also, once you wash the hands, the moisturization fades away and you will need to reapply. Coming to the fragrance, it has a prominent Aloe scent that feels soothing as well as refreshing and lingers on for quite some time. The product retails for Rs 90 for 75 gm and can be found online as well as in stores.

Do I Recommend This? Nivea Glycerin and Aloe Vera Hand Cream has an incredibly smooth texture that is an absolute dream to work with. It beautifully blends into the skin and makes the hands soft and smooth. The formula is absolutely lightweight and non-greasy and does not leave behind any stickiness at all. It has a prominent Aloe scent that lingers on for quite some time.
Unfortunately, this product won’t do much to heal or repair very dry or flaky hands. Also, it contains alcohol and silicones, along with other chemicals that I am just not okay with.
All in all, if you are looking for a good hand cream to keep your hands soft, healthy and hydrated, this is definitely a good pick!
