This makes skin feel super moist, plush and balanced - not too greasy or over-moisturised. Amazing how it manages to cover every bit of my body evenly - even my back. Scent is strong but nice, like the original Nivea Face Creme and did not irritate my sensitive skin, in fact it felt super comfortable. I think its a breakthrough product, and although you go through a fair bit it isn't that expensive. I don't know, about repurchase, something holds me back from going out and buying again. It seems a bit lavish adding an extra product to my routine? I might buy again if my skin got quite dry and there was a choice of scents.
This review is for both the body wash and the body lotion that come in the blue bottle.
Excellent products. The body wash is very moisturizing and leaves my uber dry body skin soft and pampered.
The body lotion is a bit sticky. I don't use it all over my body because I don't like to feel gooey, especially in summer. But I found it works beautifully on my feet. I have very dry heels that are prone to cracking. I exfoliate them with pumice stone and then, every night before I go to bed, I clean my feet with a wet towel (I do this only in summer because I wear flip-flops and sandals) and then rub this cream on them. My heels are now soft and the cracks have gone away.
I recommend these products to anybody.
Love this. I'm really lazy about applying body lotion and hardly ever do it. So when I saw this in the store I bought it straight away. Does exactly what it says: nice silky moisturised skin. Wasn't keen on the bottle design, found it slippy and hard to get the right amount out. But still and great product.
I kinda love this product, but it has made me sooooooo iiiiiiiiitchy! Sorry, Nivea. Have never had such an immediate and obvious all-over my body reaction before. I am taking antihistamines now...... zzzzzzznk
This product is excellent. It's like magic on older skin. Maybe with young skin the difference is not very visible. With me it changed crinkle to smooth in an instant . Love the slight fragrance, very subtle. Wish I had showered with this before long haul flight, so moisturising. Skin feels so supple and soft. Love it.
This is now my must have shower product. I purchased the dry skin one because I suffer from that a lot, was very impressed after the first use. I can notice the change in my skin condition, my skin is happier and looks smoother. Perfect after shaving, saves alot of time and I think it's even more moisturising than a normal body cream that I would apply after a shower. For a high street cheap product this is amazing, I'd still buy it if the price was increased, brilliant value for money. Easy to apply, quick to apply, spreads well.
Only downside for me is that I need a lot of it to cover my whole body so I have to buy a new bottle every 2 weeks.
Review for the very dry skin one (with almond oil). I'm not seeing a seperate page for it.
Ok first off, this got rid of the (moderate, I guess?) keratosis pilarsis (KP) that I've had on my upper arms for like, 8, 10 years? Well, the bumps are completely gone, but it also may have helped with the redness, I'm not sure. Personally KP didn't bother me that much and I wasn't treating it with anything other than gentle soap, daily exfoliation, and cheap lotion so it kinda surprised me when I suddenly noticed my arms were smooth for the first time ever after ~2 weeks using this... I can only imagine what a nice surprise this would be for someone who was actually self-conscious because of KP (no shame on you, I'm well-aware what the beauty industry systematically does to our self-confidence in order to make money).
If my mum didn't buy this for me, I might not have ever bought it. I wasn't even expecting this stuff to even be adequate on my super dry and sensitive skin but in addition to curing(?) my KP, it actually moisturises thoroughly (don't ask me how), perhaps even better than the cheaper but thicker lotions I've been buying for my body, and being able to wash it off has cut a lot of time from my daily routine that would be spent waiting for 2 coats of normal lotion to dry. It doesn't make my legs feel itchy/tingly either, like they usually start to as soon as I leave the shower. I use it on my neck/chest too and it hasn't caused any problems, not that I had any there. My skin feels softer than ever,
I'm realising that the Nivea brand has never caused me problems (I used to associate it with my grandmother, but let's be real, my skin is probably more like hers than other 21 year olds, so...). Will definitely repurchase, though I'm worried about it being discontinued like every other miracle product, lol. Next time it goes on sale I might buy a few bottles! $9 Australian is pretty reasonable. It also comes in a pump bottle, which is probably easier than the cap bottle I have.
P.S. I haven't read all the other reviews but let's use our common sense and not do the typical makeupalley review *coughAmerican* thing where we blame the company for an obvious and unavoidable consequence of the product. It's lotion you use in the shower so of course it's going to make it a bit slippery (not that I've noticed but I always sort of push any excess soap stuff down the drain with my feet and rinse the tiles). It also says this on the back in case you couldn't figure it out. Maybe don't use it if you're unsteady/worried about slipping.
I purchased the one for dry skin. I love it! It's so easy to use. I don't stop the shower to put it on as it doesn't take up much time to put it on. After you wash it off my skin feels slippery which I don't mind, it's the same with hair conditioner, it just means it did it's job. (After you dry it doesn't feel slippery.)
I didn't experience a slippery floor, I think that probably depends on the surface and the amount you use on your body. I also did not experience any white residue or marks on my clothes since I rinse it off thoroughly. It leaves my skin soft not oily or greasy at all. It lasts for about 24 hours and smells nice.
I would recommend it. <3
Initailly, I was very hesitant on purchasing this product, I heard all the hype that surounded it and I kept putting it off everytime I saw it at the supermarket. I finally decided to try it out, I got the Smooth version for dry skin. I didn't know how much to apply the first time and I think I over did it as the excess was running off me. After you rinse it off it leaves your skin feeling reallllyyyy smooth and when I dried myself (pat dry) I finally understood why people RAVED about this! It is amazing! It honestly feels like you've applied a body lotion, no idea how it wokrs but I am loving it. In terms of application and the amount to use - use the same amount as you would if you were applying lotion and pat dry after. And it smells amazing!
My mum suggested I try this - she said all her friends were raving about it. I live in South Africa, but I'm from the UK, and often on-the-shelf brands in SA really don't to begin to even compare in quality as those in Europe and the States do (same brands but completely different product as most are produced here in SA). So I was a little hesitant buying it to be honest. But for R24 (about £1.30) I thought I would give it a go.
The results - I'm delighted with it! Saves SO much time and effort once you are out of the shower. For me it moisturises really well. Sometimes I get quite dry skin and at first I thought it maybe wasn't moisturising enough but over time it has really softened and changed my skin.
Touch wood it doesn't seem to make my shower floor slippy either. Maybe it depends on the material of your sheer.
I really really like this. I also love the price. Now its up there as a necessity alongside shower gel, shampoo and conditioner etc.
