Review: Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser

C: Some of you guys may have seen my recent haul post, if not you can see it here, where I picked up some old favourites and some new things to try. One of which was the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser which I had seen around a lot recently, and since suffering with preggo related super dry skin thought it was worth a try! So here is what I thought!

Now the packaging isn’t exactly beautiful, but its functional and works well. No complaints there. The smell however… not sure if it’s my super human sense of smell (which is a lie according to Annies other half, no one has super human smell) but I hate it! I don’t even know what it smells like, and haven’t used any other Nivea products so I can’t compare it… I just aren’t keen. Its not particularly offensive though as once dressed and perfumed up you can’t smell it. So thats only a minor complaint too!

So on to its effectiveness. I love it! I apply it whilst in the shower, leave it on for a bit whilst I wash my face or something (it doesn’t say you have to leave it on, I just figured it might work more if you did) and then wash it off. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturised. I personally still apply my body butter afterwards as yes, my skin really is that dry. But I would say people with normal skin wouldn’t need to at all. This has literally been a godsend. Before using it I still had horrid flaky, dry skin after using my usual body butter and this has completely got rid of it! Amazing!

Have any of you guys tried this? If so what did you think? Any other recommendations for super dry skin? #twolittleowls

    Yes I’ve tried this, I’m now on the cocoa butter one, which while it is more expensive and in a smaller bottle, it’s lasted alot longer and I think is a little more nourishing – so far had it 3-4 months and still got about third left to go. The cocoa butter one also smells different – like… cocoa butter so if you like that scent that might a good one to give a go too πŸ™‚ xx
