I got a small sample tube of this in my January Target beauty box purchase. I would consider purchasing a full size but since I have so many lotions and such in my current rotation, I'm not in a big hurry.

I think it is kind of funny that skincare companies are trying out the in shower body lotion thing again. I remember maybe 10 years ago or so they put these out, they failed pretty miserably, got discontinued and now they are trying them out on the market again. A lot of people probably forgot but beauty product junkies forget nothing lol

Overall I found the concept of these okay.... a cream that you quickly rub into your skin while in the shower and then rinse. It takes only a minute or two, so it is fast. Faster than rubbing in regular body lotion. The thing is, this is mostly mineral oil and you could save a lot of money by just doing this with mineral oil... or any oil really. The plus side of this cream is that it isn't as messy as oil and doesn't leave quite the dangerous oil slick on the shower floor as straight up oil does but you still need to be sure to rinse your shower/bath floor well. I thought the product smelled nice as well (reminded me of Nivea's original cream) and left a nice scent behind on my skin.

The thing I disliked most is toweling off after using this, I don't want to accidentally get any residue from this product in my hair. Even a tiny bit of anything mineral oil-y touching my hair will impart a terrible disaster on super fine hair.

The product itself worked pretty well. I still felt the need to apply lotion to my legs because they are super dry and eczema prone. However I didn't feel like I absolutely needed lotion on my upper body and it was a nice time saver. My skin felt moisturized and soft but not greasy. My skin felt comfortable the rest of the day.

A little bit of a gimmicky easily replaceable product, but nonetheless decent for what it is and what it is designed to do.

When this first came out, I was very curious. Because I'm a faithful Nivea body moisturizer fan. I tried the sample (forgot where did I received it, but it's in a small sample bag). It turn out it really doesn't worth all the hype. The level of moisturizing you're getting is nothing compare to when you apply directly on your body without rinsing off. Plus, the work you are doing is really the same as applying on damp skin (or lightly moist skin right after shower). You even need to clean the bath tub after few use, so think twice! It's just a gimmick!

For sensitive skin like mine, there is this very irritated preservative. "Methylisothiazolinone" It is safe on rinse-off product such as shampoo/body wash. Which in this case, you kinda leave half of the product on your skin. I end up having skin-rash (hive) problem after one or two usage. (DOVE body wash contain the same preservative, but my skin is perfectly fine after all these years, because you completely rinse off the ingredient after shower.)

If you have 1-2 mins for body moisturizer (seriously who doesn't have 1 or 2 mins?) Just get the regular Nivea body lotion (or cream), they work just fine!

This was meh to me. So I rubbed this on after my shower and rinsed off. My skin did feel a bit smoother but I don't think it can replace an actual body moisturizer.

Bought on a whim at Target, I was curious if this would work. I love taking hot showers and especially in the winter, my skin is dry and ashy. I figured I'd give it a shot and selected this over the Jergens version because of price and I've always liked Nivea's scent.
I usually use this after body wash and shaving so I don't sit under the shower so long for it to wash off. I like how it doesn't take a lot of product to rub it all over and it feels a bit sticky at first but I wash it off almost immediately.
The difference is immediate! My skin wasn't as moisturizer as if I'd put lotion on but honestly...I usually skipped this step anyways because I was lazy! Instead it feels like my skin had natural moisture, no dry, tight and ashy feel. Unlike some other reviewers, I had no trouble washing it off so I don't know if the minimal amount of product I use has anything to do with it? I'd say I use about a tablespoon for all over.

My mom gave it to me, didn't think much of it. I'm currently spending my first real winter (with snow) in Europe so my skin is a bit dried up. This product is really practical. I cut off an extra step of my night routine - waiting for my skin to dry to apply lotion. It leaves a silky texture. It has a clean smell- nothing extreme strong. At first I was leaving it on and not rising it! I didn't read the instructions. After I started rising, I noticed that it wasn't as sticky-feeling, so don't forget to rinse.

Booo!!!! This stuff is straight up NASTY! In theory, this is a great idea. In practice, this was an epic and major fail on a ton of levels... And considering that Nivea is my fave drugstore type moisturizers, I thought they were gonna hit it outta the park with this one. EERK! Wrong answer!

This story begins like any other - I followed directions, was excited to see if this would moisturize my dry winter skin (I purchased the one for very dry skin with almond oil). I started to rinse this off and...um, it hella wouldn't rinse off. I didn't want to use a cleanser and jack up the post shower effects in which it boasts as some sort of miraculous silky skin giver and moisturizer replacement, so I sat under the hot shower for quite a while in an attempt to break it down. That didn't work - it was so sticky and there was a strange white film all over my body. When I got out of the shower I towel dried and tried to rub it in (and off), which didn't work. Basically I just ended up a sticky, rough mess. The next day my guy went to take a shower and when he got out he said "what the h@ll did you use in here? The whole tub is a slippery mess!". So while this moisturized my tub to the point it left a wax coating around it, I got no such "turtle car wax" type protection for my skin. We had to use Dawn to break down the tub grease, and I threw the bottle in the garbage.

I don't even know what else to say about this cr@p. My experience was so traumatic, I'd be surprised if I didn't have nightmares in the future. OK so I exaggerate but you get my point, right? Skip this gimmicky failure and save yourself 10 bux.

Has its pros and cons.
This was the first 'in shower' body moisturizer and therefore didn't know quite what to expect. I thought I would try this one as it was one of the less expensive. I must say it was quite moisturizing. I like to put lotion on aswell after coming out but that is just because I have super dry skin. I feel like this would be enough moisture for perhaps someone with normal skin. In terms of value I would say this is fairly good value. I picked one up from b and m for about £2.50 (250ml) and it lasted me a month which is fairly good. The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the smell. Its not a terrible scent but not amazing. I have tried more expensive ones (lush) and the only really difference is that one smells nice but doesn't moisturize more.I have just picked up the nivea nourishing cocoa in shower body moisturizer so hopefully this one will moisturize just as much as the original but fingers crossed it smells better on my body!

It's the first "moisturizer" of this kind I've tried, so I can't compare it with others. I just got curious and the promise of moisturization without any greasy feel sounded so good. Too good to be true. It does feel nice right after patting skin dry and then for an hour or two. Then the effect sort of ends and skin doesn't feel as nice any longer. So if your skin is on the dry side - this might not be enough. I tried the dark blue bottle, for dry to very dry skin, and the white one for normal skin. Not much of a difference. It also seems to take much more product to cover everything than with a traditional after-shower moisturizer, I ran out of it within less than 2 weeks. Normally 400 ml/13.5 oz lotion lasts me a month or longer and I don't need to use it every day (the effect stays, even though I shower 2x a day). I mean, it's super cheap to begin with, but that doesn't seem right to me. The sort of Nivea-typical scent also bothers me a bit, as I prefer scent-free body products, but it fades away around the 1-2 h mark, when the moisture effects ends on me. I really liked the idea and it would cut my shower time down significantly (it is so much quicker), but the results are 'meh'. Back to my old lotions.
