I have to honestly admit that moisturising after a shower or bath are one of my least favourite things in the beauty department. I don’t mind putting on a luxurious lovely body cream on a weekend when I have lots of time to just wander around my bedroom and let the cream dry. There is only few things worse than trying to put on your skinny jeans while your legs are still sticky and every little fiber of your clothes decides to stick to your skin.
You cannot imagine my delight when I discovered the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser. I am sure there were ads on telly and in magazines but somehow I missed it all and discovered this baby sitting on a shelve in my local supermarket. It basically does what it says on the tin, you put it on in the shower and rinse it off, like you would a hair conditioner. The product smells nice and does not leave a huge amount of residue on your skin – enough to feel you have moisturised but not enough to make your jeans go on like cling film.
I love this product and am really pleased with the results (there is also a version of this for sensitive skin in a white bottle). It may not be as moisturising or lux as the more traditional body creams (Keihl’s Creme de Corps being one of my absolute favourites) but it does the job when I am in a hurry.
I somehow manage to go through tons of this stuff (maybe slathering on a bit too much…) but for the €2.50 for 250ml, I really don’t mind. I hope some more brands will come out with products like these. I’d say this is also a good product to recommend to the gents – I have been laughed at when I suggested to the husband to use a body lotion but this could be something he would be willing to try… I’ll keep you posted on how it went : )
Let me know how you got on with this product or if you know of others like that!
