Hello my beautiful friends, Today I will be reviewing a rather new product in the Indian market, which is the Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser – Skin Conditioner . I purchased it quite sometime back as you can see in my haul post “HERE – Nivea Haul”
NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion immediately absorbs into the skin, leaving a nourishing and caring coating on the skin’s surface to give your skin the moisture it needs. So gone are the days where you need to wait around for your skin to absorb moisturiser after showering, and with no greasy after-feeling, you can slip clothes straight on and carry on with your day. NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion for very dry skin contains rich nourishing Almond Oil to provide long lasting moisturisation. It is available in 2 varieties in India as of now, for dry skin beauties which I am currently reviewing and the other for normal skin beauties which comes in a white bottle.
How It Works
NIVEA In-shower Body Lotions are activated by water and immediately absorb into the skin. It leaves a nourishing and caring film on the skin surface without a sticky feeling.
How to Use
1. WASH – Cleanse with shower gel as usual and rinse off
2. APPLY – Stepping back from the shower stream, apply a generous amount of NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion. You’ll be amazed how quickly it rubs in
3. RINSE – The caring formula will immediately be absorbed by your skin and then you can rinse off

My Experience with Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser
If you guys have used LUSH skin conditioners, you wouldn’t be new to the concept of this in shower moisturiser. As explained above, this is a product based on the idea of saving your time. You can follow your moisturisation routine while you are in the shower. After you are done with the daily shower, slather on the product on your skin, wait for sometime and wash it off with water, after you towel dry yourself, you don’t need to use a separate moisturiser. I was a LUSH addict! But I don’t know why but LUSH recently shut down in India 🙁 As soon as I laid my eyes on this product, I knew I want it 😀 Before I forget to mention, I have normal to dry skin except my face which has combination skin type. It comes in this very sturdy nice smooth looking plastic bottle with a flip open cap. The bottle is squeez-able and has this matte texture to it, which avoids slipping while you are using it in the shower. Yes I have dropped the bottle in the bathroom a million times, and it did not break 🙂 The product description is apt and to the point.
It smells like the typical nivea scent, that nice classic cream, milky soothing smell which is characteristic of nivea products, I love it!! It is a white cream as you squeeze it out of the bottle and the consistency is thick cream like. You may get an idea exactly in the picture below. I like to work it on to my still wet skin after showering. I like to moisturise head to toe. What I really like about this product is, you will not miss a place while you are misturizing your skin in the shower, you know the areas like back of the neck, bum cheeks (I know!), feet etc. It makes the skin pretty sticky when I apply it initially. I let it sit for around 2-3 minutes, and in the meanwhile I do all random stuff in the shower like may be arrange my shower cabinet 😀
Then I step into the shower and wash off the product from my skin. Hold on, it still looks like we are gonna be sticky!! But to my joy, after towel drying my skin, it is not oily or sticky at all. I feel like the moisture has nicely sunk into my skin and my skin has taken whatever it needed. The skin is left plump and fresh. The nice subtle fragrance still remains for a couple of hours fainting slowly. It keeps my skin moisturised nice and good for the entire day. It works lovely on my skin and does not make me worry about feeling dry.
I have been using this product in the months of april-may-june, which are comparatively hotter times in India. I am pretty sure that this won’t be enough for my skin during the colder months, where I would need extra moisturisation on my skin. Also, for the beauties with very dry skin, this might not be enough. Overall I would say this is a fantastic product, but for regular usage, I mean when you don’t need that heavy moisturisation. This won’t suffice if you have dry skin or if you live in colder climates.
A word of caution: It makes the bath floor slippery, so please be careful and make sure you wipe the bath floor to avoid any mishaps.

Cons of Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser – Skin Conditioner
1. Dry skin beauties will still need to use a moisturiser, or if you have dry patches, you will need to moisturise those areas separately as this won’t serve the purpose in those areas.
2. Is not suitable for colder months.
