Bought this due to the good reviews here on MUA. Must say a COMPLETE dissapointment!!!!! Not sure where the last reviewer bought hers....but I paid nearly $10 for this awful stuff at Walgreens and for the lackluster quality, WAY over priced....
Once I got past the extremely runny/watery consitency, which is a complete pain.....and that god awful overpowering stench, ugh! I shudder to think of it now!!!.... I found it to leave a greasy/heavy feel to my skin for a very long period of time...not to mention that negatively pungent aroma that lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts....... All in all, an absolute waste of my money as in the trash it went. For anyone that has sensitivity to overpowering scents, STAY AWAY! I don't have that problem and I couldn't take this stuff. Maybe it works who knows...but to take that scent, runny consistency and heavy greasy feel on a daily basis to test that theory, no thanks! If I could give it a zero, I would.....
My favorite everyday lotion. For me it's even better than a lot of the expensive/department store stuff. I use this daily and I have noticed a slight firming, or at least my skin on my body just looks very healthy. This body lotion is pretty thin in consistency which I like because it's easier and faster to spread. Even though it's a thinner consistency, it still seems to be pretty rich on the skin because it leaves your skin so moisturized that it is glowy and shiny but not greasy to the touch, just soft. Once applied and absorbed in to my skin, it moisturized really well without making me feel sticky-ish. Totally soothed my dry itchy skin, and did not burn when applied to my legs right after I shaved (which is big for me because most lotions do burn a little at first). The ingredients are actually pretty good. It isn't just cheap ingredients like a lot of drugstore body lotions,... there are actually some decent vitamins and moisturizers in this product which is what made me try it. This is awesome for the price. The only other body moisturizer I like as much is Gold Bond Ultimate CoQ10 body lotion (but it's a much richer consistency formula- it's more of a body butter- I use that on and off- it takes a little more time for me to use but it is very nice as well). The smell isn't bad or that noticeable after a little while, and it most importantly, does not interfere with whatever perfume I wear. I think it is really, really good, especially if you prefer a thinner texture lotion like I do. Since I started using this lotion, my skin seems much softer and more hydrated even before applying so I know it's made a difference. I will be repurchasing again without a doubt.
Nivea's Skin Firming Moisturizer is is the best! For just under $5 this lotion is a must. It's milky consistency and smoothing formula makes my skin soft and I love how it smells. It's not as perfumed as most, but smells fresh, clean and light. I moisturize with it daily and always get complimented on the softness of my skin after using it. As for the firming, at $5 bucks a pop, if you're looking for a miracle in a bottle this may not be it. However, as a moisturizer this product is quite wonderful.
This is the best body cream I've ever used, it has improved my skin appearance in less than one month and is helping with my very old hip stretch marks due to growing that I have had since I was15, they are fading with this cream, I try to use it every day or at least every other day. I also like the smell.
Due to the smell, which I'm not a fan of, I use this before going to bed all over my body....I'm on my 2nd bottle of this and I must say I notice a bit firming in my arms and thighs. This also keeps my skin soft and supple, even when I wash it off in the morning shower. Finally it gave my body this nice, subtle glow. My skin is so soft and smooth 24/7...it doesn't hurt that a daily scrub contributed to the glowing results....still I like this stuff and will continue to purchase
I got a free sample bottle of this once and I loved it. I am going to have to get some more because I really liked it. It was easy for me to ignore the scent, plus it fades after mere moments. I'm knocking off a lippie because I haven't got much experience with it.
I love this lotion. Soft, milky, sinks in beautifully, makes skin soft and smooth, not sticky (unless you put on too much), moisturizes perfectly and isn't too heavy for summer, but enough moisture in winter. But the scent...I can't handle it. Strong, pungent floral that reminds me of visits to my grandmothers rest home, lasts for hours, and gives me a headache. Why why why did they have to screw up the perfect lotion with that stench?!?

I've been using this product on my arms and legs for a few weeks now, and I don't really think I see a difference in the tone of my skin, but I'm not really paying that much attention to it. I was given this product by a friend, so I wanted to use it to keep my elbows and knees soft throughout the drying summer. The fact that it was firming didn't really interest me.
I'm not that big of a fan of the smell, but you do get used to it over a few weeks. I LOVE that it isn't greasy or oily. My skin sucks it all up within minutes. It works into the skin very easily, unlike some other lotions that you need to really massage it in. This lotion blends right in flawlessly.
I liked that it was in a pump bottle, but for some reason mine broke! That's the only reason I rated the "Packaging Quality" a 2. I just used another, smaller bottle instead. Not that big of a deal really.
This has been my number one must-have product for years. I use it all over my whole body (except face) and my skin is baby soft. My skin drinks up the moisture. I also have minimal stretch marks even though my weight has always gone up and down, and is not overly perfumed either.
Started using this when I was 13 as it made my legs so smooth and silky. After years of experimentation, I have come back to it and am now 25.
The consistency is light and milky - a little goes a LONG way and I highly recommend using this sparingly as too much may make you feel a little greasy.
My skin literally drinks this up and is as smooth (or smoother) than a baby's bottom! All my other lotions seem to just kind of sit on top of my skin - - they all work to make it smooth - but this one literally sinks IN to my skin - it's a great feeling!
The scent is a little overpowering and smells like cheap soap - but at least it smells clean and fresh - and that never goes out of style.
HIGHLY recommend - my body feels like silk and this lotion gives the slightly sheen - adding a luminosity to the skin. Much better than some high-end lotions I've wasted money on.
Will definitely repurchase - and I normally don't buy the same thing twice!
