I love nivea products and this one didn't fail the reputation. It was very moisturising and very sensitive. The moisture lasted for a long period of time and it didn't smell bad (it really doesn't have a scent)

silky smooth skin
This moisturizer is really great for the price. It absorbs into my skin quickly and feels really moisturizing. After using it my skin feels silky smooth and well hydrated. I prefer scented products but this is good if I want something that won't interfere with my perfume. The only let down is that the packaging isn't particularly appealing. But overall a great budget moisturizer that does what it is intended for.

This moisturiser sits on top of the skin for so long & feels greasy then when it finally soaks in you forget that you've even put moisturiser on cos your skin feels dry again... Bit of a weird product IMO

silky, smooth and soothing
I think this body lotion is great for a great price! It moisturises my body and leaves it feeling soft and looking healthier. It absorbs fast which is great and it just leaves me feeling that extra bit of moisture after a hot shower or on a winter or summer day! my go to budget body moisturiser

Not for me.
I didn't really like this moisturiser. It didn't absorb as quickly as I thought it would, and I felt that it left a sticky residue. I found that it wasn't really moisturising enough for my dry skin. I usually like Nivea body lotions, but this one isn't for me. I didn't end up finishing the bottle, and I won't repurchase.

Didn't work for me
I love Nivea for their lip, hand and face products. So I really wanted to like this body lotion… I really did!
But sadly this lotion just did not work for me! It felt sticky and was hard to apply, took a while to absorb and worst of all it left a gross sticky film on my skin which I could feel still feel quite a while after I applied a lotion. It’s the strangest feeling on my skin which I’ve never experienced with any other body product.
It doesn’t hydrate as well as I would have liked it to so I think it would be ok for summer when you’re skin doesn’t need much moisture.
The product just sits on my skin instead of penetrating deep down to combat dryness. I can feel it wash off when I shower and I instantly become slippery and slimy!
The very few positives about this product is the smell which I like- it’s light and fresh, a nice spring/summer scent. Also it’s good value for money if you do like the product. It comes in a big 400ml bottle which I bought for only $5.99 at Chemist Warehouse and it will last quite a long time.
But I’m trying hard to finish the bottle and I wouldn’t repurchase it. I’ve purchased 3 other Nivea body lotions (Pure and Natural, Rich Nourishing, Irresistibly Smooth) and hopefully one (or all!) of these will work better for me; I’m looking forward to finding out!

Not for me
Am I the only one who doesn't like this product? Maybe I am biased 'cause I love my Cetaphil moisturiser. I don't like the scent at all. It makes me sneeze sometimes and irritates my nose. I must admit that it is fairly fast absorbing but the lasting power is not good. I find my skin dries very quickly and I have to reapply more often.

This is an excellent moisturiser for your whole body. It smells amazing and feels really moisturising and nourishing. it soaks in quickly and dosen't feel sticky after it has soaked in. Coming into winter my skin becomes very dry and i have found that this lotion is amazing and makes my skin feel, look and smeel great.

Fast absorbing, smells amazing!
One thing that really annoys me about body lotions is that once they are applied they just don't absorb and are greasy as my t-zone(which is VERY greasy, js). This one on the other hand isn't like that all. It absorbs into the skin very quickly and giving it the right amount of moisture.
I have the 400ml bottle and I love the fact that it has a pump. I don't moisture my body that often as I am too lazy - you know opening the bottle etc etc. But I just pop this up on table and I can conveniently use it - I think its all because of the pump. Overall, would recommend this product. It has great properties, great price point, packaging and smells great!

Disliked most things... Greasy
Smelt like suncream and wasn't as thick as i had hoped...
As during winter my skin becomes dry this was just fast absorbing and not so nice smelling... Not hydrating really at all.. And used the day of shaving was rather irritating... Disappointed.
RESPONSE FROM NIVEA: Hi Retro-glam, thanks for reaching out to us and for providing us with your feedback about the product. Sounds like this definitely isn’t the product for you. For a product that is more nourishing especially in winter we would recommend either Rich Nourishing Body Lotion or Irresistibly Smooth Body Lotion. Both are thicker and will leave the skin moisturised and soft. Perfect for dry skin in winter!!
