What I Don't Like: Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser

I haven't done a 'what I don't like' post before and thought maybe now is the time since I've never been let down by a product I expected to do better. 

I don't often moisturise as I am pretty lazy, and usually my skin is quite good, but I saw this product on offer and it seemed like a great solution to stop me being so lazy!

Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser

So what does it claim to do? 
You smother it on after your shower and leave for a few moments like conditioner, then wash off for silky smooth skin. 

Only it had the completely opposite effect. After about an hour my skin was dry, itchy and flaky. Quite sure this is not the desired effect that Nivea were aiming for, and neither was I. I must have used it around 10 times before I decided to bin it altogether, in hope that I might have just had an odd skin day or something, or maybe it was pregnancy hormones. But no, on stopping using it my skin went back to normal. No problems whatsoever. 

This will teach me not to bother looking for time saving products, and not to bother saving time in future haha. 


  1. I really liked this product as it worked on my skin, but i also have a little bit of a nit pick with it. I don't like to use it because it makes our bath tub sooooooooo slippery afterwards. Our bath tub is white so it's difficult to see if i've missed a bit when I'm cleaning! Ha, i nearly had an accident last week because of it!!! For that reason, that's why i've stopped using it x

  2. I've seen a couple of bad reviews on this! I've always been a little wary of in-shower moisturisers and whether they are actually worth it.

  3. I've never really been sure about Nivea and this review has pretty much confirmed what I thought. Love when bloggers say it exactly how it is rather than what they think people want to hear.



  4. I loved this product and had completely different results to you! Maybe you had a bit of a reaction to it? Different strokes for different folks and all that!
