      NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser

      The NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser - Dry Skin is available for GBP 3.56.

      The moisturiser comes in a blue plastic bottle with a flip top lid. On the plastic bottle are the product name and additional product information. It includes 250 ml.

      The moisturiser is described as follows. "Discover the new and convenient way to moisturise with the first In-Shower Body Moisturiser from NIVEA. The skin conditioning formula is applied straight after cleansing in the shower and is rinsed off immediately to reveal soft and silky feeling skin. No need to wait, the formula is instantly absorbed into wet skin so you can dry yourself, get dressed and go!"

      The ingredients are Aqua, Cera Microcristallina, Paraffinum Liquidum, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Stearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Parfum, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Sodium Carbomer, Sodium Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate and Citral.

      The moisturiser has a creamy, but still liquid texture. The moisturiser is difficult to apply. The skin feels soft and moisturized after use. The moisturiser leaves a gentle and smooth feeling on the skin. The moisturiser does not care enough for dry skin and one has to put on some lotion after use.

      The moisturiser has a fresh scent. The scent can still be noticed after use.

      I can recommend the NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser, as the skin feels soft and cared for after use. The moisturiser moisturizes the skin, but the care is not enough for dry skin.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very innovative product, like a hair conditioner, but for your body...

      When the first time I saw the ads on television, I thought, "In shower body moisturiser? That is one incredibly innovative idea. Why did no one come up with this sooner?"

      I was so impressed that I went straight away to Savers and found the biggest bottle on the rack and took it home (after I paid for it, of course). I has two options, similar to many other Nivea body care products, the white one for the normal skin, and the blue one for the dry skin. I picked the blue one.

      I read the instruction and the first thing come up in my head is that this product is the equivalent of conditioner for your hair, but this is for your body. So I am so excited that it could also mean that I don''t have to put the body butter after shower because everything would be done right after I stepped out from the shower booth. How convenient.

      In a glance, the design is just typical Nivea. But, I would have to say that I despise the style of the bottle and its cap. Not only that the upside down style would make it easier to dribble (and I don''t like dribblies), it is hard to push the bottle down to make sure the cap clicked properly when you have a bit of the product in your hand. It is extremely slippery.

      When you squeezed it out, you could see the white cream just like shower gel. But when you apply this to the wet body, it would feel very slippery. It is not foamy, so it just glides, exactly like hair conditioner but for your body. It also smells good, almost similar with other nivea products. I was very happy with this because instead of only moisturising your hands and feet, you can also moisturise your back and neck, and basically everything in your body.

      After rinse the product off, you should feel the smooth moisturised skin in your body. But instead, I feel slippery grease in my body, and sometimes sticky greasy residue in my palm, which makes me want to start over with shower gel. Although this would go soon after you dry yourself up, I still think that it would be much nicer if it wouldn''t leave me with the greasy feeling.

      I couldn''t say that the effect is long lasted. If you use it at night before bed, you could see a bit of glow in the morning. And if you use it in the morning before work, you might still feel moisturised for awhile. But this is definitely a good innovative product, of course with a lot of room for improvements.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great moisturiser for time pressed adults and suitable for the whole family

      When I first saw this in-shower moisturiser advertised on the television a few months back I was pretty sceptical, how on earth I thought could anything moisturise my skin in the seconds between applying and it being rinsed off in the shower? As a busy mum of 3 with very very dry skin and eczema I am willing to give anything that might help my skin but not add time to my day a try so the first time I saw it on offer I bought the small size bottle to try, the dark blue one for dry skin by the way.
      It really does only stay on your skin for seconds, the shower is pretty much rinsing it off as you apply it but somehow it still managed to soak in. I immediately noticed that my skin felt softer and was not as flaky. The skin on my legs is the dryest and for the first week or 10 days although I noticed a difference on getting out of the shower by nighttime my skin was quite dry and I continued to use my regular moisturising cream, it wasn't long though before most days my legs still felt fine at bedtime. Apart from days when I have been swimming, which really drys all my skin I now only use the in shower moisturiser on a daily basis. Obviously I still have my prescription eczema creams and I use those as required but for a daily moisturiser I think the Nivea in shower option is fab.
      I was so impressed I let the children try it as well. They all suffer from dry skin and eczema as well and I have found this very gentle on their skin, it has in no way aggregated their eczema and has improved the general dryness of their skin. I was a little concerned initially in case it made the shower tray slippier for them, I hadn't noticed this myself but you never know, anyway it didn't seem to we have all been using it for a good few months now and nobody has slipped in the shower.
      It is quite an expensive product currently £5.19 in boots for the 400ml larger size bottle but it is often on 3 for 2 or similar offers and when you think how much decent moisturisers cost it is pretty reasonable. It lasts a long time too as you don't need much to moisturise all over. A large 400ml bottle lasts our family of 5 about 1 month.
      I now have the biggest bottle size in the shower - far better value when the whole family is using it - and the smaller bottle size in the swimming bag for the children to use in the shower after their swimming lessons to counteract the drying effects of the chlorine straight away.
      To sum up - A great product for adults and children alike.

      A great overall product and very affordable!

      I seem to be in the minority but I adore this product. I thought that it would be a gimmicky product that would only gunk up my shower and make it slippery but it is amazing. It truly sinks in the second it hits your skin and makes it alot more tempting to moisturise places such as your back and neck which are usually missed with regular lotion due to the difficulty reaching in and thorougly rubbing the lotion into these places, somehow the combination of this product and the water on your skin make it slide on perfectly and then a quick rinse and you are done - no greasy stuff sticking to your clothes you can get dressed instantenously without waiting for your lotion to absorb. I would advise giving the tub/base of shower a quick wipe over with a sponge before exiting just to make sure you dont leave any product to cause slipping for the next person to use the cubicle but generally with weekly bath cleaning I dont notice it makes the tub any greasier or slippery than one of those super moisturising body washes or soaps. This dry skin formula smells amazing - just like the original Nivea Creme which I love (I love all vintagey cosmetics i.e. Nivea Creme, rose water, olay beautyfluid and ponds) so this is my kind of scent but I can see how others may not like it if they don't like the vintagey rose lemony vibe of this product. I have given up my regular lotions and as long as this isn't discontinued I won't look back.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Double the result for half the effort

      I have been using Nivea bath products for years now and have always found them to be very kind to my skin. A friend had told me about this new Nivea in shower body moisturiser and said how good it was so I had been looking round to see how cheap I could get it, as it isn't very often that I pay full price for my toiletries. I got it from Boots for £2.37 which I thought was a good price, and I also had a £2 off £20 voucher which was even better. It is currently £2.50 in Asda and £3.00 in Sainsburys and is widely available.


      This body moisturiser comes in a normal and a dry skin range and I bought the dry skin range as I thought this would provide me with more moisture than the normal one and I do tend to have some dry patches here and there. This dry skin bottle was the standard Nivea navy blue colour and it stands on its lid which is something I like as it saves having to shake the bottle vigorously when you are coming towards the end of the bottle. It has a flip top which clicks back securely in place after use.


      The concept of this is that it moisturises whilst you are washing so saves you having to apply a separate moisturiser when you come out of the bath or shower. Nivea say that the four steps are wash, apply, rinse, ready and it really is as simple as that. The cream is white and is quite a creamy consistency but it squeezes out of the bottle easily enough. It has the typical fresh slightly floral Nivea smell which I love and I would say it is suitable for all the family. My husband has used this and has commented on good it feels.


      To use I will stand underneath the shower and then squeeze a 50p size blob onto my shower sponge and rub it in a bit with my hand and then use the sponge to apply the cream all over my body. I find that it does produce a large amount of lather and I don't usually have to put any more on the sponge. When I am happy that I have everything covered I will stand under the shower until all the lather has disappeared.


      My skin does feel soft and hydrated afterwards and the best thing about it is that it saves a lot of time, which is particularly good in the morning when I allow myself a fifteen minute turnaround from bed to door and that includes having a shower! I think this shower cream is a brilliant idea, although I don't think it replaces applying a separate moisturiser on a regular basis. I do have some really nice body moisturisers which are probably a bit more intense and richer which I will use if I have more time, but by using this in the morning it is giving me an extra layer of moisture for no extra effort.

        nice little product from Nivea

        Christmas is always the time I am indundated with lots of toiletries as presents and one of the gifts I received was this Nivea In Shower Wash/Body Moisturiser with some other Nivea bits and pieces. Whilst I also received some gorgeous Body Shop shower gels, body butters and scrubs I decided to use this first to get it out out way, and plus for a casual day, it seemed too much to go all out with all my Strawberry scented goodies!

        It comes in quite a simple blue bottle which looks a little like the Bivea Body Moisturising Lotion bottle - being dark blue but is top down, with a flip top lid so all the product goes to the bottom so it wouldn't be too hard to squeeze out once it comes to the end of it's run.

        The shower wash/moisturiser is meant to encompass 2 in 1, being that it can be used in the shower to whilst the skin is damp and also continue to work it's magic on the skin so once I have finished in the shower my skin does not need moisturising afterwards. It is recommended to use in 4 steps : firstly, use shower gel as normal, then rinse this off, followed by applying this in shower moisturiser, then rinse this off and hop out the shower, dry yourself off and voila! All ready to get dressed and go!

        So of course, wanting to try this fancy new method out, I have been doing this process for the last 2 days and have been pleasantly surprised. The moisturiser itself is quite thick and creamy, and applying to my skin is easy to do although it is a bit gloopy so I squeeze it onto my shower puff, then use it to put it all on my skin. I then have a little twirl in the shower, letting it rinse off by itself rather than rubbing it off and then jump out the shower to pat myself down. I have felt that this has left my skin feeling rather nourished, and not taught or dried out so not urgently in need of a moisturiser as I usually would expect to. Surprisingly this is quite a great little product as I often get quite cold out the shower and being in the nude to cream myself so this does help combat this problem and allow me to moisturise under the warmth of a hot running shower! I am yet to try and use this in the bathtub but can only assume it would be the same principle.

        Overall, I am quite pleased with this product as a gift for Christmas and would happily use it again. Whether it is something I'd rush out to buy I'm not too sure as it doesn't leave my skin with any soft, lovely scent and on the whole it's a bit basic but I'd still give it 4 stars as it does a good job as a unique idea and concept from Nivea! A 250ml bottle costs about £3.50 depending on the retailer so it doesn't come in cheap but I would say don't knock it until you've tried it.

        Great product, love it!!

        Boots £2.50

        When this product was first mentioned on the TV I thought pffft! Like its going to work! HOWEVER, I will eat my words this product is AMAZING...!
        I am quite a lazy person when it comes to beauty regimes, I would prefer extra time snuggled under my duvet rather than spend time primping and preening, so a product I could use while I'm in the bath anyway is pretty damn appealing to me. As much as I love body lotions etc they are a special occasion product when I have hours to walk around waiting for it to sink in, you don't have that with this product! There is no greasy residue left and once your dry just throw on some clothes and you're out the door!

        I did worry at first that it might make the bath greasy and in turn rinsing my hair would become a pain, but this was not the case! I used it after my general washing routine, it recommended that you leave it on but I'm too impatient for this and it didn't really make a difference how long I waited really.

        Although the difference to the softness of my skin after using this product wasn't noticeable to every person I walked past on the street; to me it felt softer and smoother. Also it did hydrate my skin extremely well.

        The packaging follows the same Nivea colour scheme so finding it in your local store isn't going to be a version of where's WALLY, hopefully! Its a simple design and safe to say I like it this way, it says to me that Nivea is a classic and dependable brand.

        I am always looking for ways to save money and make the most of what offers I can get, so £2.50 is a reasonable price for a good quality yet simple moisturiser. I absolutely love this product!!!

        My friend recommended this to me . I use nivea shower gel and thought I would give this a try. You use your normal shower gel rinse off, then use the Nivea moisturiser. It does exactly what is says makes your skin so soft you don't need much of this product in the shower.I have dry skin and this does wonders for my skin. I am a busy mum and don't have time to moisturiser normally this product works so fast and the effects on my skin are wonderful. This is now part of my daily routine now. This does more than last for a few hours.I highly recommend this product to anyone, and I will definitely buy this again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Over all it's a good product.

        I found out about this product from an ad this summer and I was intrigued by this concept. I googled around for reviews before I bought the dark blue bottle for dry skin. The reviews I read online from people who have used it seemed to have good things to say about it so I decided to try it out. Before I can tell you about this product I need to mention that I have very dry skin on my body and normal lotion doesn't really last for the whole day for me especially during the summer.

        When you have the moisturizer in your hand the first thing you will notice it's the distinctive NIVEA lotion smell. I then applied it on my body and it glided on my body very easily just like conditioner would. I did this while the water was off. I did use about half a palm full of it to over my whole body and then I just rinsed it off. I felt the effect instantaneously. After that all I did was dry my body off and it felt like I have already applied lotion but with out the feeling of cover in something sticky.

        Pros:
        The lotion does not leave any stickiness on your body after you rinsed and dried unlike lotion. It's a very easy and quick process with no mess. Does not melt off when you sweat.

        Cons:
        The lotion effect didn't last for the whole day but it was still a majority of the day. I did have to use quite a bit in the shower so the bottle doesn't last me very long.


        After a while I decided I wouldn't use this everyday as I tried it and in a long term, it didn't make my skin less dry so I only use it now when I'm either in a rush or on a night out as it doesn't melt off like lotion does. I still use my regular lotion daily as I found out in a long term my skin does feel softer even without the lotion.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Love it

        I have been using Nivea In Wash Body Moisturiser for a few weeks now and I have to say I was a little bit skeptical at first before I started to use this. The first time I used this was a free sample I had received but after using the sample, I definitely felt I wanted to go out and buy the full sized 250ml bottle. It's only £2.50 in Boots so it does represent good value for money, in my opinion.

        The bottle itself looks like a simple Nivea Body Moisturising Lotion and you wouldn't really guess just from looking at it that it's a product that you'd use differently from any other moisturiser. The difference with this lotion is that you are to use it in the shower after you have been washed and it's designed to be applied to damp / wet skin.

        The concept is totally different to anything I have ever used before and I was worried that it might feel odd and I'd not like applying a lotion to damp skin whilst still standing in my shower. It is medium level consistency, white in colour, and to me, it smells just like Nivea Moisturising Lotion that I already use. It goes onto the skin smoothly and evenly and I massage it gently in before turning on the shower again and rinsing back off.

        It sounds mad, I know, but this stuff really does a perfect job at smoothing and hydrating my skin. I like the fact that I can get the wash and moisturising bit out of the way BEFORE I get out of the shower. The lotion doesn't feel sticky or greasy at all and most of it is absorbed into my skin to make it lovely and soft, supple and smooth, whilst the remainder is simply washed away down the plug.

        My skin feels lovely and soft and hydrated for the entire day after I have used this lotion and there really is no need at all to have to use any additional body moisturisers when I have used this. It's great to use if I am going to be applying fake tanning products after getting out of the shower and it really does help to prevent streaking.

        Overall, I am delighted with this new and innovative product from Nivea. Initially, it did sound a bit mad, but I am so pleased I tried it out - I love it and totally recommend it.

        A great moisturiser, definitely worth the money!

        I first used this product when staying over at a friends house. When having a shower in the morning, she told me to help myself to anything in the shower, and when I saw this in her shower, I must confess I became very excited - I had wanted to try this out for ages but didn't want to buy it cos I didnt know whether or not it was going to be any good.

        After washing as normal, I squeezed some of this out onto my hands. It seemed very odd - it felt not quite like a moisturiser, but too thick and creamy to be shower gel. It had a very mild and unoffensive scent. I applied it to my skin and tried to stay out of the way of the water for a couple of minutes. After washing it off, my skin did feel very moisturised and soft, and I was really happy with it!

        After getting out of the shower and drying off, my skin still felt soft, although not quite as soft as it would if I had moisturised it. I do have very dry skin that causes me all sorts of problems though, so I decided to moisturise normally too, and after that my skin felt the best it had done in a very long time! I have bought some myself. It cost about £2.30 in Boots, which is significantly cheaper than my other moisturisers so I had no problems at all with spending that money! It is also so much quicker than moisturising your whole body, as you don't have to wait for it to all be absorbed into your skin. I would definitely recommend it!

        Disadvantages

        Great smell but does not moisturise

        As the mummy of a young baby, I am always looking for products which might save time but still offer a little pampering and so I was really pleased to receive several samples of the Nivea In Shower Moisturiser. It is widely available from supermarkets, chemists and online and costs around £2.50 for 250ml.

        The product has a lovely mild smell, which is instantly recognisable as Nivea. It is white and slightly thinner than body lotion. To use you apply to damp skin after washing whilst still in the shower and then rinse off. I found that I needed to use more of this than I would have expected compared to body lotions as it did not seem to go far or cover well.

        After I had rinsed the product off my skin felt exactly the same as before I had used it. I really could not notice any difference and even tried again the following day with an even more generous application, but still did not notice any results.

        I really wanted to like this, I like the concept but the results were non-existent and I felt the need to apply my normal moisturiser afterwards which was really disappointing as within half an hour my skin felt as though I had not used any moisturising product at all even after my extra generous application. I really cannot recommend this product.

        Nivea in shower

        A body moisturiser, that you use in the shower? How very peculiar but what a great idea and I was so lucky I got to try a free sample of this before liking it so much and deciding to buy a whole bottle.

        Nivea call this their, "first ever skin conditioner and the idea behind it is that it's the ultimate moisturising solution when you haven't got time to moisturise properly. This one's quick and caring. Just shower and go! It's that easy."

        The lotion comes in a regular lotion bottle and looks just likes a regular bottle of Nivea cream actually. It smells like Nivea cream as well which I like. The lotion is really easy to use and Nivea say, "After you've washed, just apply to wet skin, rinse it off, dry, then you're ready to get dressed and go. It's the brand new, easier way to keep your skin feeling silky soft." It's quite funny to use a body wash and then apply this as you would think you would get quite a mixture of smells but no, it's nice to feel clean and then apply the lotion.

        It's actually quite strange using it at first because it doesn't seem like you're using the right product, i.e., in the shower you always use a body wash which lathers up and produces lots of bubbles but as this is a cream it just sort of smoothes onto my skin and does not lather up in any way. However, it does go over my skin nicely and smoothes all over it quite well. Instantly, you can feel the softness on your skin. It's really quite amazing, as soon as it goes on my body and I am smoothing it over myself I can feel my skin getting softer. Then, when I get out of the shower my skin still feels nice and smooth and not dry like it usually does when you get out of the shower.

        There really is no need for extra cream after you have used this Nivea. Usually after I get out of the shower I put on body cream which takes a few minutes to apply and then a few minutes to dry but there is no need for all of that after using this Nivea. My skin is soft enough and feels like I already have a lotion on. This saves me so much time in the morning, especially when I am doing the school run and I really think its worth it to save just a few minutes of time but to still have soft moisturised skin.

        All in all a great new product from Nivea that I recommend.

          I wont buy it again

          I was recently lucky enough to  receive 2 free samples of Nivea's In Shower Skin Conditioner, I was unsure about this product despite Nivea having a good reputation so I was pleased to be able to give it a try without buying a full sized bottle. Its available in 2 varieties one for normal skin and the other for dry, my samples were both for dry skin.

          The Nivea Skin Conditioner is sold in a bottle however my sample packs were sachets, the full sizes bottle displays the Nivea logo on the front and informs the customer that this is a Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner for dry skin that's designed to be used in the shower, obviously on wet skin, and promises to eliminate the need to moisturise after your shower.

          The directions for use were given on the back of the sachet and state that you should shower and rinse any lather form your skin then whilst still in the shower rub the skin conditioner into your wet skin and rinse. 

          The Skin Conditioner contains Almond Oil and has been dermatologically tested.

          On opening the sachet of skin conditioner I was greeted with the gorgeous unmistakable Nivea fragrance, I'm not sure how to describe this except its fresh and Nivea! Its such a classic fragrance and smells lovely. The conditioner is white and  looks and feels very much like regular hair conditioner only its a little thicker. 

          I followed the instructions and rubbed the product into my wet skin, as promised it sank into my wet skin very quickly disappearing almost instantly. The conditioner feels slightly oily from the almond oil and very soft. I rinsed my skin and got out of the shower and dried as usual. 

          Once dry the lovely Nivea smell had disappeared and although my skin did
          feel soft especially my hands, I cant say it felt particularly moisturised. By the time I had dressed and done my hair, make up etc my skin was starting to feel quite dry and any softens from the conditioner was completely gone and I had to moisturise where I could without getting undressed. 

          As I mentioned I wasn't too sure about this new product from Nivea and personally I wasn't surprised that it failed to deliver its promise. Whilst it gave my skin some softness for a while it was certainly no substitute for a moisturiser, however I didn't suffer any irritation from it either.

          A 250ml bottle of Nivea In Shower Skin Conditioner costs £3.56 in my local Tesco, in my personal opinion its just not worth the money, I've used my other sachet of skin conditioner to give it another try but I wont be buying a full sized bottle.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Absolutely love this and will keep buying. One of my Hero products of 2013

            I purchased this item a few of weeks ago from a supermarket after seeing it advertised online. I picked the dark blue one for dry skin as I suffer from very dry and flaky skin over most of my body. My legs are often the worst, looking very dry and lizard like. I also suffer from very dry elbows.

            I'll admit that I wasn't holding out much hope for this item, thinking it would be more of a gimmick than anything else. I don't tend to moisturise my body in the morning as I've usually overslept and don't have time to let a cream sink in before I throw my clothes on. So this was going to be a complete change for me.

            From the first use I was very surprised. It smells lovely, that very typical fresh scent of Nivea cream. This is great for the morning as it doesn't clash with any perfume I want to wear. It's a nice consistency, like a light moisturising lotion. Although I can say it's weird putting "cream" on, whilst wet in the show!
            Unfortunately a little doesn't go a long way, however that could be because my skin is very dry and I do slap it on for good measure.

            It washes off well, with no nasty residue left on the skin, or the shower/bath. The bath didn't become slippy under foot and no scrubbing was needed afterwards.
            Once I had dried off I was pleasantly surprised at how nice my skin felt and my arms felt smooth and soft all day. My legs didn't feel so itchy and were not flaky. I have continued to use this daily and my skin has never looked, or felt, so nice. Even my elbows are soft. And I have noticed I'm using less in the shower now.

            My tips for use:
            *Exfoliate first - I use the gloves as I find they give a nice scrub without being too hard. Great for ingrown hairs too! I use them every other day.
            *Apply with hand or a net skin polisher. Hand works well but for a more even coverage the polisher has the edge.
            *No need to wait for it to soak in, give it a good rinse and then lightly towel dry. I tend to just wrap myself in the towel and leave it while I do my hair or something.

            I have been moisturising at night still, more out of habit than need and not every night like I used to. I've also been able to switch to a light body lotion rather than a thick body butter now. On nights that I don't use a lotion my skin is still soft when I wake up. I do think that regular use of the product is key especially to start off with. I would imagine if you have normal skin, or slightly dry skin the Nivea in-shower moisturiser would be sufficient on it's own and you could do away with other creams completely.

            I think the price of £3.50ish is a bit high, however if bought when on promotions it should work out a bit better. The price certainly wouldn't put me off though as I think this will now be a hero product of mine.
