Although this one is a little pricey for a lotion, it's actually a really good one. My sister and eye have skin that tends to dry, crack, and bleed; specifically on our hands during the colder seasons.
Tired of having this issue while alternating on ineffective lotion products we decided to check google for what worked with people, and this one was given a lot of good reviews.
Despite it's price this is a really good lotion that I'd recommend. As the label states, the effects of the product lasts for a long time, which means having to use it a little less than most lotions that I've used. It's also one of the most pleasantly scented lotions, having that nice Citrus note that I find calming and yet not quite as overbearing as some fruity smells.
Unfortunately because this isn't a "family sized" bottle, we're running out really fast, which means we'll have to resupply.
And as I've said before, it is not cheap. We might alternate to a lotion as equally effective in a larger bottle that will last us both, but for now we are finding this Nivea product quite benefiting.
I have been using this for about 2 weeks now. I absolutely love it. First of all, I will say that I don't have absolutely terrible dry skin...just your normal run-of-the-mill issues. At first, I did not like how runny this lotion was. I was used to Nivea's Skin Smoothing (I think that's the name...the stuff in the blue bottle) formula and it is a thicker lotion that takes some time to sink in (but provides great results). But then I realized runny wasn't such a bad thing--one pump goes a long way, spreads evenly, and takes no time at all to sink in and dry. I was worried that it would make the bottle run out faster, but I swear the opposite has happened. I know I can use it more sparingly and I still have probably 4/5 of the bottle left after daily use for 2 weeks. Maybe too it'll be easier to actually get all of the product out towards the end of the bottle--that is a huge pet peeve of mine with lotions and thicker ones are the worst.
I know lots of lotions claim to have 24 hour hydration...but I think this one really does. My skin is SO soft the next morning. And I love the orange blossom scent--it is light and summery but not overpowering. It doesn't compete with my perfume.
Love, love, LOVE this!
This is a great summertime lotion for those with mildly dry skin. I personally really like the smell and find it lingers pleasantly on my skin for a good few hours in the background. Not moisturising enough for winter but I will repurchase during the summer months. Doesn't leave a floury or sticky feel on your skin, dries quickly and doesn't contain mineral oil, which I'm allergic to. Is very reasonably priced and easily obtainable.
First off, it doesn't smell like baby wipes. Maybe that was someone's chemistry with the product. It has a very light orange blossom scent and maybe some green notes--like bamboo. This absorbs into my skin and a little goes a long way because it's a thinner texture and so silky. I don't feel silicone at all. My skin feels soft and smooth, and for a light moisture it does a good job. I hate the feeling of thick creams or lotions when the weather is warmer, but this is light feeling.
Ugh. The smell! My bf said it smells like baby wipes and he's right. The scent is also very strong. The texture is also weird. I think it's silicone. When you rub your hands together they just feel too slippery but not in an oily way. It's kind of a powdery-slippery feeling. Gross.
I bought this as I absolutely loved the scent of the body-wash. This doesn't smell as good as the body-wash, but I guess comes close enough. It's a light lotion, so I wouldn't use it if I had dry skin. Honestly, with this lotion, its mostly about the scent, which is fresh and sweet/citrusy. I like it , not love it. But given its cheapness I would repurchase.
I really like this stuff. I think the scent is amazing and fresh and it leaves my skin silky, soft and not greasy.
The scent is great and it absorbed really quickly.
I've tasted several products and this one is one of my favourites.
Some people don't like the scent though...
I rarely write reviews unless a product is so horrible, that I feel the need to warn others. My husband bought this for me because I had ran out of lotion, and was unable to go to the store myself. He has a cold and currently has a terrible sense of smell, because he said it did not smell like anything to him, but the smell is absolutely overpowering and disgusting. Not a hint of orange blossom (I have several orange trees and know what the blossoms smell like) It smells like a cheap air freshener that you would smell in a public restroom or in an airplane bathroom. After 15 minutes of wear I had to go shower because I was becoming physically ill and nauseated by the odor. I am not one to exaggerate either, I have honestly never smelled a lotion this bad before. I would rather suffer dry skin than even consider using this product.
Love this lotion, the next day when I take my shower my skin is still smooth and soft
