Eternally Cherished - the NIVEA hand and body cream

There are some values in life, that have become classics and for very good reason. The NIVEA cream that was cherished by our mothers as well as our grandmothers, is a treasure for every woman facing a mild or a severe dry skin problem. This, almost pharmaceutical  product, is actually therapeutic and comforting for the cold winter nights and for the sunny burning days. Its oily, but light texture makes everything feel better, and the metal recognisable round container, has become a symbol for skincare worldwide. I still remember the ones I filled with buttons or pins as a child. And as I apply some ointment on my always needy hands, and I smell the well known scent I feel like a ten year old, sharing my mom's cosmetics.
