Can’t use anymore after formula change
Very disappointed that the formula has changed. The new version worsens dry areas on my face and is too fragranced, whereas the old formula was soothing, hydrating and pleasant to use. I have been buying this for the last couple of years but can’t use it anymore.

Change is not always good
This was a fantastic cream wash for dry sensitive skin but the new formula has creased large patched of dermatitis and irritation on my face. I though it was from wearing face masks but when I stopped using the wash it dermatitis started to settle. Seems from the comments Nivea has made a grave mistake changing the formula and caused a lot of discomfort for people.

used to be great
I used this cleansing wash for quite a long time and really loved how it made my skin feel. Lately I have been feeling very dry and itchy around my chin and have been unable to determine the cause. I discontinued using this wash and the problem has gone. After reading other reviews, I am wondering if there is a new ingredient and it caused the dry itchy feeling?
