Beiersdorf's Nivea brand sponsored New York's Times Square for New Year's Eve for the second year, urging people to "make 2010 a year of love, hugs and kisses." Celebrity pair Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo - "one of America's most romantic couples" - hosted Nivea's Kiss Platform and helped ring in the New Year.
