I have really been in to in-shower moisturizing products lately. Especially when I don’t have a ton of time in the mornings and I want multiple things achieved in one step. In-shower body lotions work exactly like a conditioner for your hair does.
You first complete the cleansing, then you slather this on, let it sit for a minute or so, then rinse. And that’s it! You are totally moisturized and you don’t need to worry about putting on lotion after your shower. The convenience of this product is really just amazing. Plus, it comparable to Lush Cosmetics Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, but for a quarter of the price. If you are looking for a similar product without breaking the bank, this it.
Nivea has 4 different types of their In-Shower Body Lotion. The choices are:
- Hydrating with Sea Minerals
- For normal to dry skin
- Nourishing with Almond Oil
- Dry to very dry skin
- Smoothing with Shea Butter
- Dry skin
- Cocoa Butter
- Dry to very dry skin
I have personally tried the cocoa butter formula as well as the almond oil one, due to my dry skin. I really think they are both fabulous and will definitely continue to purchase them, especially in the winter months. I will say that if your skin is already very dry, you may still need to moisturize after you dry off, just for the sheer fact that you will want more hydration.
However, this definitely cuts down on the amount of product that I use after the shower to moisturize. If you have more normal skin, then you will find this is plenty to moisturize your skin without extra products after the shower.
What I also really like about this is that you do not feel sticky after applying this and you will stay moisturized for close 24 hours. The moisturizing effect is definitely long lasting and you won’t feel that dry, itchy skin come back for quite awhile.
As far as sensitive skin goes, I totally feel like this would work for you. I have been using this months and I have not had any issues with my eczema flaring up from the product nor any other skin issues. I would still do a small patch test to make sure but all in all it is a great product!
I totally recommend this for anyone looking to save a step in their routine and get extra moisturized. This product retails for $7.99 and can be purchased practically at any drugstore or grocery store that carries Nivea.
Until next time,
