Hope every one had a fun weekend. I am back with another review, and this time it is for Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser for dry skin. One of the major trouble for the dry skinned beauties is to keep their hydrated, so that it does not end up looking scaly and rough. I have very dry skin in winters, and since I am lazy, I keep on looking for easier methods for hydrating my body. This is when I bought this body conditioner from Nivea, and let me share my experience.
Price: INR 250 for 250 ml
Shelf Life: 30 months from date of manufacturing
Directions for use:
“Use your normal soap/body wash and rinse off
Apply NIVEA’s In-Shower Body Moisturiser on wet skin while still in the shower
Leave it on for 2 minutes and then rinse off
Dry yourself, and get dressed immediately. Leaves no residues in towels”
The Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser comes packed in a blue tube packaging, with a flip cap. The packaging is quite sturdy, but as is the case with tube packaging, it is hard to get the body conditioner out when you reach towards the end. The body conditioner is white is color, and thick in consistency, and has a smell that is some what chemical in nature. The smell stays on body for a while, but the smell could be troublesome for people with sensitive nose.
I use the body conditioner as directed. Firstly, I find that it is hard to wash off. I keep on getting a slippery feeling even when I have washed off many times, and the feeling is relieved only when I towel dry my skin. Secondly, as mentioned on the product itself, it tends to make the floor slippery, and you have to be careful to wash off the floor well.
Now coming to the hydrating part, I started using it before the winters, and it did moisturize my skin. But if I did not follow it up with a body moisturiser, it started to feel dry after 2-3 hours. Not impressed! In winters though, it performed even worse and I had to religiously follow it up with a body moisturizer. All it did for me that it provided a healthy sheen to the skin for sometime but nothing much.
I did not enjoy using the product that much. It might be hydrating enough for normal skin, but not for dry skin. If I have to follow up with a moisturizer after using it, then there is no point for me to add an extra step in shower.
In my opinion, try this only if you have normal skin, and find out if it works out for you. I think dry skin beauties can invest in something better than this one.
Will I repurchase or recommend Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser to others????
I will not repurchase it, and will recommend it only to people with normal skin, and see if that works for them.
Have any one of you tried Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser??? If yes, please share how it worked out for you.
