Super random post for a snowy Saturday but I didn’t have anything else planned for today anyway! Nivea is currently on BOGO at ULTA, I don’t usually purchase this brand but I almost always shop sales for body care and hair care and picked up a couple of things. I am totally sold on the body lotions that I picked up, they are apparently new oil-infused formulas and they are lovely. The in-shower lotion was surprisingly an immediate win for me as well. I have tried products like this before and I want to like them, it’s a great concept – why not just get moisturizing out of the way in the shower? My issue is that I don’t know if they are doing anything or not – I find that I either feel sticky afterward or I still feel the need to apply body lotion. Anyway, I chose the 24+ Moisture/Radiant Silk version that claims to exfoliate with little beads and add instant moisture with argan oil. I won’t lie, I chose it for how amazing it smells 😛 It’s definitely floral but light and refreshing at the same time, it’s hard to place but very pleasant. It has the consistency of lotion with a little more slip and you apply it after your regular shower routine and then rinse off. Apparently, you are supposed to avoid getting it on the bottom of your feet so wear some socks in the shower. But seriously, how are you supposed to keep the product from getting on your feet? I am probably stating the obvious but this stuff makes everything super slick so be careful. After rinsing off, not falling down and toweling off – I didn’t feel sticky and my skin did actually feel pleasantly moisturized. I don’t know how exfoliating this formula was but I think that this is how an in-shower lotion is supposed to work and I am sold! Talk about a time saver, I loathe having to moisturize after the shower and am happy that I took a chance on this product. The scent does linger for most of the day which I really enjoyed but if you aren’t into floral scents then this one might not be for you. I recommend, I think it was well worth the purchase!
Have you used a product like this? Thanks for stopping by <3
