Like alot of women, I like to take care of myself as far as possible, but if there’s a chance to cut corners and save time I will. If I can condense my beauty routine by a step or two, and skill get great results, I’m a very happy bunny. I was both confused and excited when I heard about the Nivea in shower moisturiser. I loved the idea of being able to slap lotion on my body in a fairly slap dash manner, and simply rinse off. No sticky skin that needs to dry before you try and wrestle your clothes on. At the same time, I thought the idea was a bit odd. What good was a moisturiser going to to if you were in effect rinsing it off after application? This somewhat diluted my haste to get my hands on the product. Then I had a thought. I have very dry skin, and when it is especially dry and itchy, I take a break from my regular shower products, and switch to using aqueous cream for a couple of days. It works really well as an emollient, and you can use it as a body wash in the shower or bath, as well as using it topically. This, and the product currently having 1/3 off at Superdrug, convinced me to try it.
After cleansing with a gentle shower gel, I thoroughly slapped this all over my body. As liberal as I was, I think I only used about twice the quantity I use for hair conditioner; a couple of slack palmfuls. It was easy to apply and smelled nice. It was also easy to rinse off.
Once I had patted myself dry, and changed for bed, I got my partner to feel my skin and asked him if he thought it felt softer. He agreed that yes it did. I thought it had, but I wanted an unbiased opinion, as I wanted to much to like this product. My skin was beautifully soft, and still feels nice today, even after only one use. I shall continue to use for the rest of the week, and report back. So far I am very impressed, and loving the idea of falling into bed 15 mins earlier as I wouldn’t have to delicately rub a topical moisturiser into my extremities.
You can also get it for Normal skin, and this is in a white bottle.
If you have tried this, please let me know what you thought. If you haven’t, is this something you think you would try?
