Mini Review! – Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser

Nivea Body Moisturiser

On seeing the television advert for this product, I immediately thought two things:

 1. That won’t work
 2. I’m going to try it anyway.

I mean – a moisturiser that you can wash off? It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? I love having moisturised skin, but I’m lazy, and applying moisturiser, waiting for it to sink in, sticking to things, getting it all over my pyjamas – frankly, it’s a hassle I could do without. And this is only £3.99. So I decided to give it a go. I got the one for dry skin, there’s also a normal one but the skin on my body tends to be a bit on the dry side.

It says to use after cleansing, so I used a shower gel first and then applied it – exactly as you would with a shower gel really, leaving it for a short time and then washing it off.
I wasn’t expecting much, but this was actually really nice. It does leave a residue on your skin, but it’s not sticky and once you’ve dried off you could definitely get dressed straight away without getting anything onto your clothes. My skin felt silky rather than soft, and I loved the smell – it’s a classic, clean, typical Nivea scent.

I wouldn’t say that I would be able to use this instead of a traditional body moisturiser or body butter – there’s no way around it, it doesn’t give the same level of moisture and it doesn’t last as long – but as an extra, or for those days when you really can’t be bothered, this makes a great (and cheap!) addition to my shower!

  1. I going to look for it love nivea products. Thx for sharing have a great day.

  2. I have this and feel exactly the same!


  3. Yeah i agree completely, it is not that amazing, but perfect for days when your in a rush xoxox


  4. I have really horribly dry skin and I don't think of this as a replacement to body butters etc but rather an extra to make sure that I always have that added moisture.

  5. This sounds perfect for me! I always will be lazy with moisture :p x


  6. Like you said as an extra it sounds lovely, I'll need to pick it up, especially as it's so cheap!

  7. This sounds like a pretty good product for the cost anyway. I didn't even realise products like these existed, haha. Love the blog name too by the way :)


  8. This sounds quite good, I love my facial skincare hate moisturising my body after a bath so this sounds like it would fit in with my lazy ways haha x


  9. It sure is attractive....but if it doesnt serve the purpose of a traditional moisturizer..i would nt want it... great review by the way!

  10. It is a really cool idea! But I would need to try it to believe it !


  11. I actually really like it - I've never been one to moisturise a lot, so this actually works really well for me because it's so easy and quick! :-)
