Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser Review

What is this ? 

A body moisturiser that you apply in the shower and then rinse off, just like you would a hair conditioner.

The people at NIVEA Body say that this product is so obvious it is a wonder that no one has thought of this before! I must admit it hadn't actually occurred to me that this may be a product that I may need but is rather a clever solution to a question I hadn't asked.

How Does It Work 

NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser is easy to use and works in four simple steps:

1. Cleanse with normal shower product and rinse off 
2. Apply NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser while still in the shower 
3. Rinse off 
4. Dry yourself, get dressed and go!

Makes body moisturising so easy and convenient. It leaves a nourishing layer of moisture on the skin and skin feels soft all day. No waiting for the product to sink in and no greasy feeling or film, meaning you can get   dressed straight away.

My thoughts 

In the past I have said that I do find moisturising my body a chore, it does get easier when I really like a moisturiser but it is perhaps easy to skip this step when short of time. Having normal skin and a really good shower gel it is an area I could happily not bother with although I sometimes feel guilty that I should be doing it ...however I was curious by the In-Shower Body Moisturiser.

I was sent the dry skin version which is enricheched with Almond Oil. The other version comes in a white bottle and is for normal skin and contains caring Sea Minerals.

It has a similar consistency to a hair conditioner, it was white opaque in colour and smelt pleasant but not overpowering. I followed the instructions, I just applied and rinsed off.

My skin felt incredibly silky and soft, much nicer than when I don't bother to moisturise. This feeling lasted all day. I was suitably impressed. I would be interested to see how the In-Shower Body Moisturiser for nomal skin compares.

My only negative thought was the bottle design - it may be because I have small hands but having product in one hand and trying to close the lid with the other hand whilst the bottle slipped about in my hands was really difficult! As the lid is at the bottom more product was coming out whilst I was attempting to close it. 

NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser 250ml bottle costs £3.56
