Nivea Extra Rich Moisturising Body Lotion

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.

    I wish I could use Nivea but I'm so allergic to whatever is in their formula! I need to get back into a better moisturising routine, I often forget!

    I use it all the time. I have this exact same which I use at night and I have one with exrra whitening ingredients and spf protection for day. My skin just loves it… I just love Nivea and its products.

    I like Nivea but it doesn't like me so much, my skin reacts badly to it x

    I'm gonna give it a go then. My elbows are a disaster and always dry. The price is so cheap that I can really buy this and give it a try. Usually I'm not a big fan of Nivea since I heard that they put silicons in it, but who knows if that's true or not… Silicons feel really soft but usually are not hydrating so much. Could be that this is a long time ago and that they don't do that anymore. Anyways I love the smell of Nivea and the price too, so that's always very interesting. Especially when someone with the same dryness problems recommend this; you. I will post something soon about an eye cream too that works good with red and dry eye skin. I will let you know how it was after trying Nivea!

    And I remember that I still have a stash of Nivea products at home waiting to be use! I also purchased a Nivea lotion though its a little smaller than this.

    I haven't tried Nivea for a while mostly because I have forgotten about it until now. I think I will have to give it another shot though. This winter has done a number on my skin and I think I need a new lotion/moisturizer to help before the summer hits!

    I'm not a Nivea fan that much. Not sure why but it doesn't work for my skin too! 🙁

    Lucky you, I have sensitive skin and its hard for me to find a product that would fit for my skin.😁

    I love Nivea products. The lotion I'm using now is the Nivea Sun. It's really hot here in the Philippines and I need something to protect my skin from the sun. =)
