Moisturising in the shower?


Initially when I saw this product in a TV ad I thought it was just a gimmick, but my extreme hatred of moisturising after my shower and having to wait until it dries to put clothes on prompted me to pick up a bottle. Nivea obviously couldn't decide what to call their product though - I mean "In-Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner"? Bleeurgh, what a mouthful. 

I went for the one for dry skin, rather than normal skin, and it really is super moisturising. After using your regular shower gel, you just rub the product all over, like you would with normal moisturiser, except then you rinse it off. So weird, but it actually works! I love stepping out the shower with soft moisturised skin, knowing there's no more time-consuming moisturising to do! There's a couple of downsides though - this works out as quite a bit more expensive than regular moisturiser at £3.56 per 250ml bottle (which goes very quickly) and you have to remember to wash the shower tray down after use, as it makes the floor super slippery. Although I do love this product, I think I'll only be picking it up when it's on offer (I'll stock up though!)

  2. I tried this after seeing the TV ads but unfortunately wasn't impressed with it at all.
    Especially with that price tag, and as you say it really doesn't last very long.

    I don't really feel like it moisturised my skin either :( But maybe it works better for different skin types?

    1. That's a bummer. I think sometimes a product will work really well for one person but just isn't suited to another XX

  4. I clearly haven't been watching enough TV as I haven't seen this advertised but it sounds so good, will have to look out for it - only when it's on offer though lol.

  5. Hmm, doesn't sound too bad, but in my opinion, it's a bit more water consuming...

    1. You can turn the shower off while you apply (which only takes about 30 seconds) and then rinse it off (only an extra 10 seconds of water usage!) XX
