According to Nivea…
“Helps revolutionize the daily skincare routine with a different take on moisturizing. Three new In-Shower body lotions will moisturize your skin right in the shower, leaving you with soft and smooth skin, without the sticky lotion feel.”
My skin care routine is ridiculously long, and I thoroughly enjoy every step. But there is one thing I just can’t bring myself to use regularly: body lotion. Even the best formulas feel greasy and sticky for hours. Usually I exfoliate in the shower and leave it at that. My skin doesn’t feel super hydrated, but I never have to deal with my clothes sticking to my skin.
I decided to give Nivea’s new In-Shower Body Lotion a try in hopes that its unique application method would deliver hydration without the annoying side effects. And guess what? It’s awesome! It’s seriously hydrating without leaving any residue on skin!
Here’s how it works: apply a generous coat all over wet skin while you’re in the shower and then rinse it off–just avoid the bottoms of your feet so you don’t slip in the shower. Use this in addition to your normal soap or body wash as a final step. I find that it works even better if I let it sit on my skin for a couple minutes before I rinse.
Unlike my face (which is oily), the skin on my body is dry, so I use the formula for Very Dry Skin which is formulated with almond oil. Nivea also makes a formula for Normal to Dry Skin with sea minerals and a formula for Dry Skin with shea butter.
This stuff is great! It leaves my skin totally hydrated without any residue. I’ve even gotten compliments on my soft skin since I started using this!
