Creme de la creme

We are now in the dead of winter and my skin is dry dry dry! I was all over the internet looking for a good moisturizer for my body and hands. Of course the moisturizer with fabulous reviews was Creme de la Mer, but unfortunately this girl cannot afford that luxury. I know how tragic!

So, “dupe” life is the life I know… and that’s okay!  I don’t think I could ever justify spending $170.00 for 2 oz of sea kelp.  Maybe one day!

Anyway, I did some research and found that people compare Nivea Creme to Creme de la Mer.


So, if you know me you know I love samples!! I purchased this little tin of Nivea Creme for 99 cents at the grocery store and I am impressed!  This creme is extremely thick and a little goes a long way! It definitely is the winner for keeping my hands soft and moisturized.  I have read of people using it on their face, but that would scare me! I feel like it could clog your pores, but you never know! There are no rules in beauty! If I were to ever try my face I would do a small spot first just to make sure it doesn’t break me out.

I would love to use this as my moisturizer on the go, but the tin doesn’t shut tightly and that would be a huge mess in my Celine bag if it opened ( Just kidding I obviously don’t own a Celine bag either!) But it would be a huge mess in my Olivia and Joy bag.

Overall this is a great cream for hands and body!  The best moisturizing cream I have ever used. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cream without spending too much!

The Nivea Creme will have to do until the day I can use Creme de la Mer and carry a Celine bag.  A girl can dream can’t she?!
