Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser Review!

Right, i've been dying to try this ever since i seen it advertised on the TV:


For lazy girls like me, i'm sure you all seen this advert and thought it would be a miracle product that you simply must have in your life.. or at least this is how i felt. So i rushed to tesco this weekend and picked up the Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser 250ml at a special limited time price of £3. 

I picked up the one for dry skin as, although i don't actually have particularly dry skin, i do get dry hands, elbows, knees etc from fake tanning etc.The version for dry skin is the blue bottle and the one for normal skin is the white.


Basically, what this product claims to do is moisturise your skin while you are in the shower to save time doing so when you get out. You can simply moisturise, rinse, dry, dress and go! So i thought i would put this to the test and share my opinions with you lovely lot.

The bottle tells you to cleanse your skin the way you normally would in the shower and rinse. Apply the moisturiser while still in the shower then rinse off, dry yourself, get dressed and go!


So, my shower went a bit like this.. 
Jumped in the shower and washed my skin using a normal shower gel, grabbed my exfoliating sponge and exfoliated using a scrub. I then shaved my legs, rinsed my whole body then grabbed for this In-Shower Moisturiser.


Obviously i am not going to take pictures of myself actually applying this in the shower, but i did want you guys to know about the consistency of it etc. 
I initially thought this was going to be just like a shower gel that you would apply, it would lather and go bubbly, then you wash it off. But i was very wrong. So this is what the product looks like out of the bottle:

(i am wearing pjamma shorts!)

This picture is pretty rubbish at showing but it's the best one i managed to get. So the product is a creamy, white liquid and is actually quite thick compared to what i thought it would be. It does not lather at all it just feels like a normal moisturiser although obviously as you are applying in the shower it is impossible to rub it into the skin until it is dry as you would with an ordinary moisturiser.

So what you do it apply all over your body while still in the shower, then rinse it off. I won't lie, at first i thought.. am i not just washing it all straight back off? But i did what i says to do anyway, rinsed it all off then got out the shower and dried myself off with a towel.

So did it work? 
Well usually when i get out of the shower after exfoliating and shaving my legs feel extremely dry and have a sort of stinging sensation, but when i got out of the shower after using Niver In-Shower Moisturiser i didn't experience this.

After i was completely dry i threw my clothes on and i can honestly say my skin does feel moisturised, it feels soft to the touch especially the top of my arms and my chest area and my legs haven't felt that stingy after shaving before moisturising sensation which can only be good!

I was really sceptical about this product especially as i thought i would just be washing it all off straight after applying but the bottle does claim that it is quickly absorbed by wet skin and leaves you with soft skin straight from the shower without the need for any other body lotions afterwards!

I actually really do like this product so far and am going to keep using it to see how i feel about it after a longer period of time. The only bad thing is that i can tell the bottle isn't going to last very long so it would be an expensive habit to use every single shower!

This is still on offer of £3, or £4 for a bigger bottle from Tesco, and my mum actually tells me it is even cheaper just now in Morrisons so if you want to give this a shot then i recommend you go pick it up just now!

Will you be trying this out?
Have you already tried it? What did you think?

  8. The post is full of positive information and is very useful. I recommend the Sakare body shower, it leaves a gentle scent on your skin, as well as leaving you fresh and clean.
