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.

This is actually my first Nivea body product and I'm quite impressed. The main reason I bought it was because of the scent. A lot of body lotions these days smell pretty bad...even the "non scented" ones. So I decided to give this a try and I love how its not heavy and creamy. I like lotion that absorb quickly, doesn't leave that "layer" feeling over your body or hands, and has a scent that isn't strong. Also I like the pump for some reason. It comes out smoothly. I have no complaints on this products, it' def worth a try if you are a bit curious.

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

I purchased the body wash first and absolutely loved it! And wished for a body lotion.. Well..finally i saw a body lotion :) Grabbed and was very excited.
Now..while I love the lotion. I have couple of issues with it. First of, the scent is not EXACTLY of the body wash.. very very close but not exactly.
And second, the lasting power is not existing :( When you put it on it is nice and lovely buy the scent dissapears after few miniutes. Now I am wishing for a mist :) to make the scent prolong:)
But I DO Love the scent..and it is mositurizing to me, gets absored super quick.

It's not really moisterizing, but has a nice scent. Prefer the other Nivea products.

I picked this up at Target because after a $3 coupon it was only $2 for 16.9 oz. Not bad. Anyway, it's kind of runny but it absorbs quickly and smells nice. I'd prefer it if it smelled more like oranges. Has a pump, too.

I'm basing this review on a sample I got in the mail. The verdict: Not bad at all. The lotion itself is very light, and it absorbed really quickly. I can't feel any sort of residue at all. It almost had a powdery finish once I had finished applying it that I think is interesting. I'm not the best at describing scents, but I would say it is a very vanilla-ish,warm scent. It is almost creamy, with a hint of something spicey underneath, it's actually quite sophisticated. It is not cloying or heavy, and I am having a hard time detecting the scent an hour after applying it, so I don't think this will stay with me through an entire day. But I will definitely consider a full-sized bottle of this for sure.

I really love this lotion! The scent is great - light, citrusy, refreshing and a nice pick me up in the morning. It's also great for the summer time because it's light enough but still does a good job moisturizing. I also only need a small amount compared to other lotions. This would probably not cut it for winter because it's too light for that time of year. Great price too!

Got a sample of this and am not impressed. I put it on my hands and it feels like a cheap lotion. I can see where people have described it as sticky. Some time after putting this on my hands felt more dry than usual. I love sweet fragrances, especially orange and vanilla, but I didn't like the way this smelled. Maybe it's the "bamboo extract" part of the scent, but it smells like orange mixed with a slightly medicinal "lotion", that's the best way I can describe it. Not horrible, but nothing terrific. My fav hand lotion is Whipped Silk by St. Ives - I keep a small bottle in my car.

I love this moisturizer! I hated the one I was using before this, and was desperate for a new one. So I went into Priceline and headed straight to the moisturizer section. I saw a tester of this one, and rubbed a bit into my arm. As soon as I smelt it, I knew i had to get it. I love the smell, its so easy to rub in and not all sticky - what is everyone on about? Are we even using the same product? You must be using half a bottle on one area of skin! You only need a little bit, which makes it great value for money as it was only seven dollars! I like that it isn't thick, as the other one I was using - it took forever to rub in, smelt yuck and just felt horrible on. So this was an amazing change. I highly recommend it, it is so cheap, smells so good, feels so good, and is great value for money. Don't listen to negative reviews!

I honestly don't understand why this product as such a low raiting. Anyways, I can understand why some people say that it feels sticky, which is why I would recommend this for those with dry skin like myself. I think this moisturizes well but that's not what brought me to this product in the first place. I'm usually not a big fan of Nivea, as a matter of fact some of their products much too thick for me however lately I've been loving their deo, shampoos and now their lotion! What drew me in to this product was the scent (they had a sample in the magazine) and I fell in love. It's a perfect combination of vanilla cream and oranges - kind of smells like an orange smoothies - there's just something creamy and light about this scent. It's perfect for spring and the summer and I was fortunate to find this as I was not in the mood to spend big $$ on TBS products. Definately will repurchase.

I love this lotion.. and would give it a 4.5. Nivea and Eucerin are very similar in that you need a very small amount and it needs to be rubbed in, not slathered on it huge amounts. This has a lot of glycerine in it and is not like cheaper lotions that use alot of water.
The scent is lovely and smells divine. It makes my body feel silky when I use it after a shower. I love the fact it is in a pump bottle as I find it is less messy, and I prefer my products in a pump bottle.
