Review: Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser for Normal Skin

Okay, show of hands - who can be bothered to apply a body moisturiser every day? No? No one? Didn't think so! We all know it can be a hassle to apply a moisturiser over our entire bodies and wait for it to dry before getting dressed, and it certainly isn't a habit that's easy to maintain. So on Nivea releasing their new In Shower Body Moisturisers, I felt I could practically hear a combined cheer from my fellow busy people. Seriously, why hasn't this been done before?!

I opted for the normal skin version because I feel that my skin isn't in too bad a condition, and I must say that it certainly does thoroughly moisturise your skin. In terms of effectiveness, it definitely does its' job, leaving you with soft and supple skin all day. Even better, it is so incredibly fast and simple to apply - you simply wash with your normal shower gel (this product is not to be confused with a cleansing product; it is only a moisturiser) then apply the body moisturiser, wash it off, and dry. As you're already in the shower, it really does save you a lot of time, and I feel that it is a much easier habit to maintain as you are already applying products in the shower.

After my first use, I quickly realised that less is more with this product. If you apply too much, your skin will feel greasy and the product won't sink in completely, so it is important to start with a small amount and go from there. Other than that, there are no disadvantages about using this product, except that it can make the bottom of your shower slightly slippery, but that can be easily washed off. It can feel strange washing the product off, because it just kind of sits on your skin and doesn't wash like you feel a shower product should, but you definitely get used to it.

Another great feature about this product is that the lid is at the bottom, meaning that the product is easy to get out - okay, I'm aware that's a really simple feature but it does make a difference! The small things in life... Anyway, for £3.65, a 250ml bottle is really a great price which nobody will mind spending. In fact, this is less expensive than many other body moisturisers, and it saves you time too! Overall, this is a really effective and useful product which the beauty world has been calling out for.


  1. I've been wanting to try this but I have so many moisturisers to get through at the moment *sigh*.
    I'm glad I've read a few reviews and now know that it seems like a pretty good product. I'll definitely give it a go!


  2. Ahh I hate when that happens! I am really impressed with this product xx

  3. Oooooh, I really wanted to try this. Such a time saver. I love the smell of Nivea shower wash so I hope this smells similar. x


  4. Oh I got a sample of this a few weeks ago and forgot to use it. I really want to dig it out and give it a try, I'm useless at remembering to apply lotion! Xx

  5. Ooh yay now you get to give it a go! Let me know if you like it xx
