nivea extra rich moisturising body lotion for dry skin
Nivea is always the brand that comes to mind when I think of great moisturising body lotions and they never fail to deliver an amazing product that will do exactly what you need. And I think I have found one which works in perfect harmony with my skin …
The skin on my body is very dry and I am prone to having bouts of eczema but not too often that I worry too much about it but I’m still careful not to use products that can trigger it. And finding the right moisturiser can be very difficult especially when I can’t use anything too perfumed.
I found the Nivea body lotion almost by accident and actually bought it on a whim as I was needing something that would hydrate my skin. I was in Wilko and saw this on offer for under £2 and thought why not give it a go..
Application is really easy and even though the lotion is rather runny it goes onto the skin white which is a great guide, I almost always miss bits when moisturising. It does sink in really well and the white guide goes away very quickly. I would say it’s best to apply this before bed or when you aren’t going to be wearing a lot of clothing as it is tacky for a few hours afterwards. That sounded strange I mean it’s best if you are wearing a dress or shorts rather than jeans. The smell is the signature Nivea scent but it doesn’t last all day, I’d say about an hour and it’s gone so don’t worry about it affecting your perfume.
I have been using this for about a week now and I have seen such a huge difference, my extra dry areas, upper arms, knees and my shins appear a lot more moisturised and my body just feels so much softer overall. If you are a dry and sensitive skin sufferer I really recommend you giving this a go.
