I just bought some nivea creme from my lcoal walmart stroe in vegas. its the mexican version one, with the round glass container. once out of the shower, I opened it up to spread it on my arms, the creme was so thick and nasty, it doesn't even have the smell of the actual nivea creme. thought of putting some coconut oil in it, made no effort to make it creamy like how it suppose to be. I just also found a website, claiming that the levels of toxic materials can cause death and cancer with time. No wonder, america wants to end the so called " over population of the world" in fact, it already is.

i have been using Nivea creams for a while now, constantly dropping and again starting. i noticed that i would have a rash breakout whenever i would use it constantly , but i never put two and two together and stopped using it altogether. I now also notice that when i took breaks from it , my face was fine and i didn't have a problem. I also noticed that their creams (some) have a strong perfumy smell

Same here, I used to use Nivea cream, I noticed that I developed itchy facial rash and very flight body itch. When I stopped using it, I would recover from the rash and itch.
