I am coming to you today with the first instalment of my Fab or Flop series. Today we are going to talk about a fairly new purchase of mine: Nivea’s In Shower Body Lotion ($7). This product has recently launched in Canada and I thought I would give it a go!
To get this review started I would like to give you a little background about my personal skin issues. For one, I HATE body lotions. I don’t like anything that feels even remotely greasy, sticky, oily etc. As soon as something is on my skin I feel like I want to scrub it off. Because of this I have avoided moisturizing my body apart from my soap and body wash routine in the shower.
I was in the local drugstore the other day and I found this In Shower body lotion. Both my roommate and I bought one to try out.
The one that I chose to buy was the Shea Butter scent for Dry Skin. They did have another option that is more oil based for severely dry skin. I found the scent of that one to be a little strange so I went with the Shea Butter.
After a few uses now I can properly tell you that I LOVE THIS STUFF. Oh my goodness it is a life changer. If you are like me and hate anything cream related on your body then you will adore this. It is not sticky, it smells nice, and it only takes a few seconds to do.
When I use this in the shower I rub it all over after I have washed with soap/ body wash. Then I let the lotion sit for a few seconds and wash it all off. (Tip: Do not use as a shaving cream!) You do not feel greasy or sticky and your skin feels ridiculously soft after use. My boyfriend kept rubbing my legs and insisted that he couldn’t stop because they were so soft. This happened after I had only used this product twice.
I think if boys notice that you are more soft than usual, we can call this a big old Fab. I highly suggest that everyone goes to the drugstore right now and buys themselves a bottle of this stuff. Like really, go right now.
I hope you enjoyed the first post in this series! Let me know if you have any products you want a review of for the upcoming Fab Or Flop posts.
All my love,
FYI: I bought this product myself and opinions are my own. xo
