“ Brand: Nivea / Type: Shower gel „
I stopped buying shaving gel years ago as it was always so expensive. I normally use and shower gel or good old soap but it does tend to blunt my razors and even using a soap dish it always goes soggy underneath. Not to mention the fact soap dries my skin out. Shopping in B&M bargains I saw this Nivea double effect for just a £1. I thought this was a bargain so I picked up two bottles.
The bottle contains 250ml and is white with purple and orange razor on the front. It is described as being shower and shave.There is also a silve logo saying the product contains 'Hydra IQ' which leaves you with a soft skin feeling. The product comtains avocado oil which Nivea claim will allow a close shave and will leave your skin soft and smooth. The product is also pH balanced and dermatologically tested.
There aren't any directions for use on the bottle instead there is just a list of ingredients. I just used it as I would any nornal shower gel. The scent was really nice it smelt floral to me although it is described as passion fruit. The gel is creamy in consistency and it is also really thick so it needs to be lathered well. This is great as when you use it to shave it doesn't drip off. It also leaves a white lather on your legs so as you shave you know where you have been so you don't end up missing bits. Using the gel as a conventional shower gel I always use a body puff as I find it is quite rich and needs something to help it lather. After rinsing my skin felt clean and the scent lingered for a short time.
After using this my skin was really soft and smooth. I was also plesantly suprised to find that it also hekoed give me a really close shave. My skin didn't feel dry at all. Normally when I shave I get really dry skin but after this my skin felt moisturised and there was no irritation or shaving rash.
Overall this is a good product it does the job. It doesn't come in the most attractive packaging but the bottle design is practical and the flip lid is easy to use. I would definately buy this again as it is two product for the price of one. Just a shame there aren't more scents available.
