Nivea: In Shower Body Skin Conditioner

"NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion immediately absorbs into the skin, leaving a nourishing and caring coating on the skin’s surface to give your skin the moisture it needs. So gone are the days where you need to wait around for your skin to absorb moisturiser after showering, and with no greasy after-feeling, you can slip clothes straight on and carry on with your day."

I received some samples of this and was very excited to try it because due to health reasons I get worn out just standing taking a shower and moisturising afterwards completely drains me, so anything to make that process quicker and conserve a tad more energy appeals. I've never used anything like it and found this to be quite a good moisturising body conditioner. I'll have to grab a full size bottle soon because if it helps cut down my moisturising/showering time I'm all in!

Also, I understand it's often difficult to actually get a good feel for whether you like a product from a sample size but I think it's often helpful to know a first impression opinion as we are all different and some products may be more effective for one long term than another so let me know if you would be interested in more quick sample reviews as I've got a bunch to try that I would like to feature.

The sweet and sour...

  • Definitely moisturised my skin, nice and silky smooth.
  • Not sticky. Can pat dry.
  • It did feel a little waxy and strange at first, maybe a tad slimy? I assume that's the Paraffinum Liquidum.
  • The scent was okay and didn't linger. Didn't love it though.
  • You need to use a generous amount.
