Because why not?

Saturday Sample.

5 October 2013
Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion, we've all heard about it, most have tried it and then there is me who's slow. When Nivea offered samples (I think on FB?) I jumped at the chance to receive one.

This is a bit of a different concept, it's not a body wash but a wash off moisturiser. There are a million moisturising body washes on the market, most of them (not all) don't do a whole lot of moisturising, the fact that they contain surfactants (the stuff that makes them foam up) is basically what kills any moisturising properties so having a stand alone product that doesn't claim to do anything but moisturise your skin in the shower ticks two very special boxes for me:

  1. I don't like moisturising my body, most of the time it takes forever to absorb, my clothes stick to me and it's time consuming. Cold in winter and sweaty in summer also turns me off.
  2. I can have hydrated skin without yuck of moisturising.
My initial thoughts were: This is going to leave my skin greasy, my shower slippery and my mood in a bad place.

My thoughts while using it were: This smells nice (frangipani?), feels nice and I'm wasting water.

My thoughts while washing it off were: Holy crap my skin isn't greasy.

My thoughts after drying off were: Ohhh it totally works!

My two sachets were just enough to do my whole body excluding my back, the consistency is that of any standard moisturiser, after washing with your usual body wash you just rub it over your wet skin then rinse it off, that's it. So easy.

I'm keen on this stuff, I like the concept and I reckon I would buy this if I can ever manage to get through my hundred bottles of body moisturiser.

All Products were purchased by myself and I'm in no way affiliated with any of the companies mentioned unless otherwise stated. Links provided are for shopping examples only, I have personally purchased from some (not all) of these online stores but I highly recommend researching before buying.
