I always come back to this lotion and I've tried many. From drugstore to high end and this still beats them all. What I love is this actually absorbs into your skin. Other drugstore lotions (I'm looking at you aveeno) just sit on top of your skin and do nothing to moisturize. My skin feels like silk after using this. No other lotion has ever made my skin feel so smooth. It's not heavy, sticky or tacky at all either. I would prefer if it were unscented but it's not an offensive or overpowering smell and it certainly won't stop me from using it. If they ever discontinue this my skin is done for.
I bought 75ml of this lotion for only a little over a dollar @ The Dollar Store (downtown Toronto). The price and the cute purple packaging caught my eye. My boyfriend was complaining about dry hands and they were even peeling at his knuckles. I picked it up at 1st for him and since he's been using it once per day and doesn't seem to have that problem as badly (will probably take some more time to totally heal as he never used hand lotion before (MEN!! lol))...As for me, I love the scent, the feeling of it on my hands and I put the excess sometimes on my neck. It's great for the wintertime. Furthermore, I found another use for it...It removes my eye make up really well. I just put a little Nivea on my Neutrogena make up wipe and it removes so well with NO eye lash loss and it's not near as oily as my Johnson and Johnson's Baby Oil. I wear about 3 or 4 coats per eye of mascara and in literally just a couple of wipes with a little of this lotion, I get it all off. I will re purchase but keep buying the smaller sized bottles.
I love the smell of all Nivea lotions. This is by far my favorite one. I have tried the others, but they don't seem as moisturizing and don't really soak into the skin as quickly as this stuff! This is now my hubby's favorite lotion as well!
I was having a problem with itchiness due to my dry skin in the winter time, and this was the perfect solution. I actually love the smell too!
It is nothing really special. I almost finished one bottle. It absorbs very fast and easy to spread. However, I donot think it is very effective on very dry skin.
I am upset because I love how this product absorbs into my skin, but I hate the smell. I can use a ton of this and no white residue. At first I didn't mind the smell, but lately I just can't take it. I don't know how to describe it. Minerally smelling if there is such a thing. Or old ladyish. I really wish they would come out with another scent for this, I would repurchase in a heartbeat.
Highly recommend this moisturizer! This is the best moisturizer I've tried. Nothing else compares to this in winter. I went through bottles trying to find one that lasted the whole day/night & finally found this. It is a great consistency-spreads easily. It's super cheap. I am a fan of pump bottles. The only thing I don't like about this lotion is the smell. I tend to prefer fragrance free products, but I put up with the smell because it works so well it's worth it.
I 'am very impressed with Nivea and the quality of the product for the price. Speaking for myself, this product worked wonders for my skin type and my dry skin drank the lotion up. The Price is right with excellent packaging.
The one thing I did not like about the product was the strong scent. I apply ample amounts and people kept asking what the smell was. They said they liked the scent but it was very strong. Not the thing I go for when buying lotions. I will buy this again though.
Now that the economic condition is so on a downturn, my fiance has been coaxing me to save save save! So, I decided to try this lotion as I saw it was on sale for $7.99 Cdn (before taxes) for a 400ml bottle with fabulous pump! I bought it and figured if I didn't like it I will return it or use it as a hand cream, so no biggie. Well ladies and gents, this lotion is super-duper fabulous! It softens my skin so much that it feels like a baby's skin. I do think though that this lotion is good for summer months for myself because my skin is so utterly dry during the winter months. Regardless, the texture is light and fluffy so it absorbs quickly (it does take half an hour to be fully absorbed) and does not feel sticky. The fragrance is extremely subtle so it doesn't interfere with my perfumes. EDIT (Dec 2009): This lotion is utterly fantastic! My skin was really dry due to the winter months and nothing seemed to be working (even the TBS body butters), so I put this on and voila soft skin immediately. Am very impressed with this lotion. Will continue purchasing for life! It beats my fav TBS bb and is defintely better than the other drugstore lotions/creams. Love love love it! My ultimate HG body lotion! EDIT (March 2011): Not sure why but I cannot stand the smell of this lotion anymore :( too bad i'm not going to repurchase even though its an excellent body lotion.
