Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser

Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Hero | www.latenightnonsense.com Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Close Up | www.latenightnonsense.com

Always one to be late to the party, I guess I'm finally jumping on the band wagon for Nivea's new venture into in-shower moisturisers. It's not a new concept, Olay and Lush both have offerings in this field but Nivea are certainly dominating the market. I've seen this explode over pretty much everyones blog recently but I've been so busy I've only just got around to trying this wondrous moisturiser out for myself.

I'll admit that I break one of the most important rules of skincare; I don't use body moisturiser. Okay, not never but it's a really rare occasion that I do. I tend to find that after I've used a body scrub or wash and dry myself off, the last thing I want to do is spend even more time having to cover every inch of my body in yet another product. The good news is, I'm vowing to get better, so please bear with me and send me gentle pokes in the right direction.

The genius thing about this moisturiser is how easy and versatile it is. After cleaning as you usually would, rinse that all off and stand a little out of the way of the direct stream of water. You'll need to really massage the moisturiser in and having the water lapping at your skin isn't going to help it sink in. If your shower isn't big enough I'd even suggest stepping out of it while you get to work. Apparently it's instantly absorbed into the skin, but I love to give this more of a fighting chance as my skin can be pretty temperamental hydration-wise. I found about two hand sized squeezes does the trick to cover me from neck to toe. The consistency is slightly thicker than a body milk and thinner than a traditional moisturiser. My one annoyance is it's quite difficult to see where you've already covered and you can end up wasting a lot of product. Don't forget to wash it off though, or you'll be very unpleasantly surprised when you go to towel off.

It's after you're dry that the Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser, £2.56, comes into its own. That tiny bit of extra time spent working this into the skin leaves everything supple and silky smooth. Some have complained of a greasy residue being left behind, but I've not experienced this and wonder if it might be down to too much product used at once. There's no stickiness, just hydrated skin that has done wonders for my self confidence. Investing time to properly moisturise is something I'll be adhering to and will give me an excuse to dip into my Origins Grapefruit Soufflé. I'll be using this on days I'm rushed off my feet and in dire need of a pick me up for my dull, dry skin that can be topped up with a moisturiser to tackle the really hardwearing areas like elbows and knees.

Nivea have hit the mark with this product and, although not the prettiest package in the beauty cupboard, will spark other companies to create their own. Don't be surprised to see more in shower moisturisers over the coming months!

    1. It's great, right? I thought it was maybe a little gimmicky at first, but I've been enjoying using it as I have little to no time to moisturise.

  3. I'm just like you, I'm so lazy with body moisturizers. It's just that since all my shower gels are so moisturizing, I feel like I don't need anymore.

    1. I know, I just never seem to find the time. It's that extra time I could spend doing something else. But I know that I should do it, so I'm getting better!

  4. I keep meaning to pick this up, as I too somehow find no time to use body moisturiser after the bath or shower.

  5. I'm SO like you! I SUCK at moisturising, I tell ya! This stuff is not bad at all, I believe Lush were the first to come out with the in shower body moisturiser, I prefer Lush's but it's a little pricey!

    1. They were indeed. I tipped the hat at the start of the post, and they do a good job at it but I just find some of their stuff is a little overwhelming.

  6. I've seen this and really wondered what good it would be because it really does sound truly amazing! I have it like you that I just can't be bothered with body moisturiser and this product sounds truly amazing and after reading this I'll have to go try it out!

    1. Definitely grab yourself a bottle, especially at the price. You can't really go wrong. :)

  7. Glad to see you back! :)
    I'll admit here as well that I always "forget" to moisturize. It's a hassle most of the time, okay? ;) But this product sounds lovely and easy to use. Plus, the price just makes it even more of a winner. I've heard of in-shower moisturizers by LUSH before but I never get along with LUSH products so I haven't tried them before. If you don't have terribly sensitive skin, maybe it's worth a try!

    3. Not a problem, always worth popping in for their bath bombs alone. :) x

  9. Another person that can't be bothered with body moisturizers! I think it has something to do with the hot humid of the summers here. this has yet to come to taiwan but I hope that the trend will still continue till when i drag my butt over to london! xx

    1. Hi,

      I've had a look but it's all in Russian, I can't understand that sorry.

  11. I love the idea of this product, and I can forgive boring packaging if the product is good haha. I use L'Occitane's Almond Shower Oil to help lock in moisture but it is SO expensive so I'm definitely considering replacing it with a product like this when I eventually run out. xx

  13. I've currently been using Dove's Moisturizing Body Wash but this one seems like it's even richer and hydrates skin better. I'll definitely have to look into this! What are your thoughts on body butters when it comes to moisturizing?

    1. I don't think I've had a body butter in my collection since The Body Shop ones I bought when I was a teenager, but I would love to try some more out. I have an Origins Soufflé which is quite similar and that's so hydrating.

  18. I'm really excited to try this! I suffer from really dry skin so I have to body moisturise every day, and it's such a chore! It's nice that this is something that requires a little less effort! xx

    1. It's revolutionised the way I moisturise. For most that moisturise all the time it might not be as intensive as they'd like, but for me it's ideal. I couldn't ask for more.
