Some days, I tend to skip the extra step of applying body lotion after a shower. I know it’s not a good idea as most of my body can use the extra moisture this time of year, but that simple step of applying lotion when skin is still damp and waiting for it to dry just feels too long, especially when I need to be out the door. So when NIVEA launched a new In-Shower Body Lotion, which allows you to moisturize skin right in the shower, I had to give it a try.
This in-shower body moisturizers feels and looks like lotion, but is applied like a body wash. It comes in three formulas: hydrating for normal to dry skin; smoothing for dry skin; and nourishing for very dry skin. I like the smell of the hydrating formula, containing sea minerals, but since my skin has been on the drier side I prefer the rich nourishing formula, containing almond oil.
I’ve been using this new body lotion for a few days and love how this product saves time and leaves skin soft and smooth; however, I will alternate days with a more traditional body cream which penetrates dry skin deeper while also leaving a nice sheen. This new in-shower lotion is definitely a time-saving addition to my daily routine and definitely suggest you give them a try. NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion ($7.99).
