Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser Dry Review

As the seasons are changing, this year I'm actively trying to change up what is in my skincare routine to fit it's winter needs. One of my first changes was this Nivea in-shower body moisturiser. I picked up the 'dry skin' formula, although I don't suffer from dry skin, I wanted to get the smoothest and most moisturised skin possible! The concept is easy enough to grasp and with it on offer in my local Sainsbury's, I thought I'd give it a whirl and see if it indeed made a difference or if it was a bit of a fad.

When first using this, I was really sceptical as to whether I could slot this into my daily shower routine, but actually it was fairly easy. This product is simple to use, and quick as well, so this can even feature in your rushed 5 minute showers. I view it as a second shower gel, although this product doesn't lather at all, it just sits on the skin. The smell isn't a potent one, if you've ever smelt Nivea's original cream, it smells just like that, but it doesn't linger at all when out of the shower. Maybe my only gripe when using this is that I use a hefty amount of it, but the bottles are rather big and cheap, so using a fair amount of it over my whole body isn't a hardship to my wallet. I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin, and it is certainly a lot smoother a supple than if I didn't use it, and because you've already washed the residue off you genuinely can pop your clothes on and go. I don't think it works as well as a body butter, but with some body butters you're waiting a rather long time for them to sink in. I've used a body lotion over the top of it, which does add even more moisture to your skin, so even if you're not willing to give up your post-shower moisturisers, this will still be of good use to you.

Overall, I'm really satisfied with this product, it's cheap and cheerful, it does what it says it will and is super fuss-free. With it's ease-of-use and faint scent, I think this would also be great for men (I'm in no way saying men can't invest in a Laura Mercier Body Souffle, I just don't know any who do.) and I just think this is great product all year round, but particularly with the colder weather closing in.
