Review: Nivea Body Lotion In-Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner

Taking care of my face is something I am proud of being able to do quite on a regular basis. Facial wash, facial scrub, skin activating lotion, face serum and moisturizer — the works. Sadly however, I cannot say the same for my body care. On a daily basis, I am satisfied with just bathing or showering with my usual, trusted regular bar soap. Rinse off then dressed up and I’m done. This is not to say that my skin survived because clearly I have unsightly white marks when I scratch my skin.

Manila and Cavite weather is generally sunny, hot and humid. Other than the fact that I don’t have time to put on lotion and let it dry before I carry my baby or rush to feed him (I direct-feed him so I skip lotion to ensure we don’t feel sticky together, literally and figuratively.), I intentionally skip putting lotion especially during the day since I dread the sticky feel I get after sweating.

Therefore, I got excited about trying this new type of body care that is an in-shower skin conditioner that you can use in the shower and rinse off!

This new in-shower skin conditioner by NIVEA has three variants, and I got to try the intensive variant recommended for dry skin. This is the variant that has the signature NIVEA blue bottle.

You might wonder how an in-shower skin conditioner really works? Well, when the skin is wet, pores open up and it is pretty much the best time for skin to absorb nourishment easily. The NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner is actually activated by water to fully moisturize and repair dry skin. What it does then is that it leaves a nourishing film on the skin surface without the sticky feel.

HOW TO USE:
1. SHOWER. Take a shower as usual and use your normal shower product. Rinse off.
2. APPLY. Apply the new NIVEA Skin Conditioner while still in the shower. The wet skin can directly take up the unique water-activated formula so that it is easily and quickly absorbed.
3. RINSE. Wait some seconds and rinse off residues shortly.

Nivea In-Shower Skin Conditioner

Pros:
This is the first time I have tried an in-shower conditioner, and I’m definitely excited. The first thing I loved about it is the scent, maybe from the almond oil. It’s so so good and it lingers even after the shower. I used it after showering with my usual body soap. The convenience of the bottle packaging is a plus point. I squeezed some product onto my palm, and applied it first on my neck and then arms just like how I would with regular lotion. It’s texture is more of a runny lotion rather than thick lotion.

It felt like you are applying a regular lotion except that you apply it onto your wet skin. It glided smoothly on every inch of my body. The water activates the product making it easier to apply.

It is enriched with almond oil and is quickly absorbed by wet skin and deeply replenishes moisture.

The minute I’m done covering my entire body, I started rinsing it off. No need to wait! I take time to massage every part of my body to ensure I have rinsed off the product.

It’s an extra step in the shower that I will gladly take because it only takes about 60 seconds and I dare say it saves my skin from drying during the day. I no longer need to put on lotion after I have showered, and yet I keep my skin moisturized.

Note that I have combination skin type and it leaves my skin feeling silky soft instantly. I cannot vouch if this will work as effectively with dry skin, as promised. I even skip applying lotion after shower because this alone is good enough for my skin moisturization.

Cons:
It develops a slippery texture as it interacts with the water. The first time I’ve used it, I applied it literally all over my body including my underarms. I felt weird even after rinsing it off since it left a film of lotion at least on my underarms, making it feel slimy. It also interfered with my deodorant. Tip: Do not apply it on areas you don’t want to feel slimy or sweaty.

As long as your skin is still wet after rinsing, it can feel slimy. So it might get some “getting used to” in using this. But as soon as you towel off or pat dry, no problem. Generally, it does not leave any residual sticky feeling. The slimy feeling will be gone, leaving you with just a moisturized skin.

And because of the ingredient (which I’m not sure what) that is activated by water, it can get slippery on your shower floor. So be careful especially if you use a bath tub. I suggest avoid applying it to the bottom of feet either.

One thing to note though, you’ll need more of the product to cover your whole body.

Overall,  I really love this product! I have been using it for a couple of weeks already, and I’ve been loving how easy it is to keep my skin moisturized so easily. It saves me the hassle of having to apply body lotion after I have showered, which is annoying and I’m really not able to do.

If you love this product as much as I do, or you want to try it for yourself, grab a sample from SampleroomPH!

Vying to be one of Sample Room Beauty Insiders

Being a follower and a member of Sample Room since the first year they started, I strongly believed and supported them in the premise of “try before you buy“. Who has money to throw on products or services that you’ll eventually find out that it doesn’t suit you? That is where Sample Room comes in — they give us option to try products or services first before buying them! I don’t think there is anything more awesome than that!

55 products, 2 contests won and 3 years later, (yes, that’s how many products I’ve sampled!), they are now looking again for the next batch of Sample Room’s Beauty Insider. I wanted to join the first batch, but missed the chance, so now is the exciting time for me to try and join. I am so ecstatic that I literally have to control myself and my thoughts in order to share my reasons for wanting to be part of Sample Room on a deeper, bigger level. Here are my top 3 reasons why.

I have strong passion in sharing what I believe in. By getting first dibs on products and services, I will try and test it so you don’t have to risk getting products that won’t work for you. I will share what’s good or not so good in the simplest, honest and personal way, and you be the judge if it’s something that tickles your fancy.
