The ingredients are on the whole pretty good as far as I'm concerned, although I'm a bit miffed at the "synthetic beeswax" - where does that come from, synthetic bees!? Aside from that and the inclusion of Methylparaben (a preservative), there's lots of good stuff - moisturisers like glycerin and shea butter, and quite a few natural extracts, making it skin-friendly.
In all, Nivea Daily Essentials Regenerating Night Cream isn't ideal for my skin type, which in fairness to the product is definitely "oily" as opposed to "Normal to combination" - otherwise, this is a decent product especially for the price point, leaving my skin well-moisturised and with really nice packaging. The Regenerating Night Cream is available from Superdrug, at £3.00 (normally £3.99) for 50ml, and Boots, priced at £4.35. I won't be repurchasing as I'd prefer to try a different product which might suit me better, but for the target audience I think this is a lovely little product and would definitely say it's worth a try!
