This product is my easy go to product. It glides on easily, doesn't take forever to sink into your skin, feels great, and I can see the difference from dry skin to hydrated skin in a day on my body. There really isn't much that I can say that's bad about it.
The added bonus is it is so affordable, and everyone knows it so you can get it everywhere! If you;re on holiday and need your NIVEA body touch up, it's never too far away.
A great product that I can see myself telling my daughters about!

Long Lasting Super Express Hydration
GLOSSCARS NOMINATION 2012
NIVEA EXPRESS HYDRATION BODY LOTION
Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion comes in a slightly contoured plastic bottle that is easy hold because of the contour. It is a simple design which I like.
The cream is a soft, white, creamy and a light weight texture with a very pleasant scent. The scent is of Blue Lotus. It is subtle enough not to overpower any perfume you may want to wear.
Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion contains Hydra IQ technology, an active ingredient that is able to stimulate your skin's own moisture network by activating hydration immediately for non-stop 24 hour hydration.
It also contains Glycerin and Glucose which combine to moisturise and hydrate your skin.
The cream is super easy to apply as it glides on to my skin with ease. I always apply it after my shower.
It always absorbs very quickly into my skin, which I love, and another positive about the cream is there is No greasy residue feeling that you can get with some moisturisers.
After applying the cream, my skin always feels soft, extremely well hydrated, supple and healthy.
I was bought up on a farm and have spent a lot of time outdoors, so I tend to have dry, ageing skin.
I need to be able to use a body moisturiser that continually gives me a high level of hydration. Without this my skin tends to be dry and dull.
I really like Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion, it has added sea minerals to assist with 24 hour hydration.
It works extremely well with my skin.
I have found it to be a high performance, budget body moisturiser.
I would recommend this lovely moisturiser, and will continue to repurchase it. It is also extremely economically priced.
Suitable for Normal to Dry skin.
A MUST HAVE for me.

GLOSSCARS: Express Yourself
Now being a dry skin sufferer since as far back as I can remember (poor brain has to go back a fair way now) I am always on the hunt for a great body lotion. And being time poor, I want it to work pronto, like NOW! So when I started to hear the buzz about Nivea's new Express Hydration Body Lotion, I couldn't help but take notice. I skirted around it at the supermarket, picking it up, putting it down, wondering if it would be just another product that was destined to break my heart. But then at $5.40 I thought it would be a low risk dalliance and if it didn't work out, I told myself, I could easily just walk away without regret. So I did buy it and I'm happy to report I haven't looked back! This is a great body lotion. For starters, it has a fabulous floral (blue lotus) scent and another point in its favour is that it is FAST. Gone are the days of rubbing and rubbing...and rubbing to get the lotion to absorb. This soaks in super quickly (think rain in the Sahara). My skin felt immediately softer and much more hydrated. It's a lightweight, non-greasy formula and it also contains sea minerals which must be good for healing. It's dermatologically tested so it's also good for sensitive skin (like mine). Most importantly, the moisturising properties lasted all day - which really clinched the deal for me.
I really like the look of the bottle too with its crisp white/soothing blue colour combination. It's curved to fit neatly into your hand with a nice easy-grip matte finish. It has a simple flip-lid too that locks into place to avoid spills.
In the end, I've been really impressed with this body lotion and certainly would recommend it to any other disillusioned dry skin sufferer out there. I'm glad now that I gave Nivea Express Hydration a try...this could be the start of beautiful friendship.

Year Round Speedy Hydration.
Super in summer, awesome in winter! Having done a video review for this in the past I couldn’t imagine this not being reviewed again and missing the chance to win a Glosscar which it deserves. NIVEA's Express Hydration body lotion is a light, white coloured consistency containing sea minerals and a lovely soft Blue Lotus scent, which I find refreshes and uplifts my senses without being overpowering. The bottle has a stylish curved shape design that allows it to sit comfortably into my hand while the flip top lid is easy to open making it fast and easy to squeeze out the amount of lotion desired each use, perfect for people short on time like myself.
I have been using this for over 6 months now and every other day or when I feel I need extra nourishment I apply a small amount of this of a morning to slightly damp skin after showering and find that it spreads with minimum effort, absorbs within seconds and doesn't leave my normal to dry skin feeling thickly coated or greasy. Its new Hydra IQ formula keeps my skin feeling hydrated, soft and moisturised all day long, It doesn’t wear away and leave me with even drier skin later on like a lot of moisturisers do. Often after using other moisturisers I find when I shower next that it leaves my skin feeling greasy when the water contacts my skin but NIVEA Express hydration Body lotion doesn't do this. It absorbs into my skin quickly which means I can dress straight after applying and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and comfortable all day. The lotion "supports skins own water channels to enhance (your) natural moisturisation." I can see and feel this difference. This lotion definitely works differently to other lotions I have used. Used once daily is enough for my skin to stay feeling moisturised. After forgetting to apply it for a couple mornings to my legs I found that the skin still felt more hydrated, smoother, softer and less dry than before I had used this lotion. Its obvious that this 24hour Hydra IQ seems to work as my skin still maintained a balanced feel all over.
I am enjoying using this lotion as moving between seasons my skin becomes a little drier and out of control but this once a day lotion has made it simple and fast for me to keep my skin feeling lovely and soft while also giving it a more radiant, hydrated, healthier look. It means I can say goodbye to dry, papery skin and hello to a gorgeous moisturised me! Long term my skin has remained balanced without any obvious dry areas that often appear thanks to the heat, humidity, cold and all those environmental factors that can cause havoc to those with sensitive skin like mine. Only needing a small amount of lotion every use makes this well priced for a body lotion that can add so much extra moisture back to the skin so fast, No wonder its called Express Hydration. Having used this lotion for many months already I can see myself using this lotion well into the future to keep my skin soft and supple. It’s a budget friendly, effective formula, Thankyou NIVEA for another reliable moisturiser that does what it says and restores moisture like it intends to. This is one that I keep happily popping into my supermarket trolley or priceline basket knowing it works!

Soft and Supple skin
Nivea always make great body lotions and this one is not an exception. It contains hydra-IQ technoligy which means it is able to stimulate the skin's moisture network, and activates hydration which provides 24 hours moisturisation. Nivea claims that this body lotion not only moisturises from outside but from inside as well and it really does what it promises.
The packaging is quite similar to all other nivea products with a flip flop lid and the bottle has slight curve that makes it easier to hold as it perfectly fits in my palm.
Body lotion is not runny and not very thick either that makes it easy to use and spread. It is not greasy or sticky and absorbs very quickly in my skin. I apply it directly after I shower and it make my skin very soft, supple and smooth.
I also noticed that some of the dry patches on my hands were gone since I started using this lotion so it really does get thumbs up from me.

My Skin is in Love Glosscar review
Well after being sent a bottle of this to try from Nivea I was surprised from the start, I expected a small trial bottle and received a full size bottle... that was a great introduction to a great product.

Soft, smooth skin!
I was so glad to find this lived up to all the lovely reviews! I really found a difference in my skin after only a few days use. It's a lovely smooth cream that absorbs and dries easily and quickly, without any greasiness or stodginess in terms or texture. I have alot of scratches, bruises and scars on my legs from sport and general clumsiness :P, but was so pleased to find this helped to soothe them a little and reduce the harshness of the marks. I did think the shape of the bottle was a little pointless at first, but like others have mentioned, it makes the bottle easier to hold, which is a really nice detail. Overall, I'm really loving the Express Hydration! It's so moisturising I don't even have to use it everyday (I do every two days or so), which stretches an already budget price product. A beauty basic staple for sure.

Amazing! - Glosscars
I was lucky enough to be sent a bottle of this by nivea and I'm glad I was because it's one of those products that I probably just would have walked right past. There is nothing flashy or eyecatching about the packaging but it is functional. The tapered bottle allows it to be gripped easily even with greasy hands. When your getting down towards the bottom of the bottle you can turn it upside down and it sits easily on the counter so you can get the last little bit out. I really love the smell, soft, subtle clean. It won't compete with any perfume you wear. I only apply this product at night after I shower and find that's all I need to. It really does provide 24 hour moisturisation. It absorbs quickly and easily into the skin so you know it's working deep down and not just sitting on the surface of the skin to make you think your skin is being moisturised. The best thing I've found is that it has helped even out the slight pigmentation I have on the tops of my arms. I suffered from body acne during adolescence and have some small acnes marks on the tops of my arms. As I've been using this, their appearance has lessened. Another amazing product by Nivea and I reckon I will be using it for a long time to come

I've grown up with Nivea, so I was very excited to try this newbie to their range....
so, my first thought was that the packaging was very cute, I like how the shape of the bottle fits neatly into your hand. The body lotion has a lovely soft scent, nothing too overpowering or cloying. It has a very nice creamy feeling when you apply it, and it just sinks into my skin like its loving it! I only needed to use a small amount as a little does smooth over a lot of skin.
After only a few short weeks I could see the difference in my skin, how it felt and looked! My shins especially, no more flaky snake skin look for me!
No wonder Nivea has been around for years, they keep on coming up with amazing products, thanks Nivea, you've done it again.... :)

A tall drink of water for my skin!
Nivea is definitely on the leader board when it comes to great body products. I have never met a Nivea moisturiser I haven't liked! I first got to try Express Hydration in a free trial but that little bottle got me hooked on this fantastic product and I have since bought 2 of the 400mL ones.
I use it every day and can afford to be very generously slathering it all over my body because it comes in at under $10 - what a bargain! Having said that, you don't need to use half a bottle each time because the lotion is rather easily spread and covers a large area with not too much product. The lotion has a cool and fresh feeling on the skin, not heavy or sticky at all. It melts effortlessly into the skin, leaving it feeling soft, hydrated and best of all your skin is not greasy after applying. It has a fresh but mild scent which I quite like, it is not overpowering like some of the heavier scents that body lotions and creams can have.
Another fantastic thing about this product is that the skin stays hydrated all day. It is really important for me at the moment because I'm pregnant and most of my body is either growing or swelling! If my skin is at all dry I start itching like crazy and the strecthing can also lead to stretch marks. When I apply this lotion after my shower in the morning I don't feel dry or itchy at all and I have so far (7 months into my pregnancy) avoided getting any stretch marks at all. I like that I didn't have to spend a fortune on special potions to do this!
One last argument for persuading you to run, not walk, into your local store and snap up this product (as if you haven't been convinced already!) - the pump top of the bottle allows for fuss and mess-free application. The only downside about pump packs is that it gets a little tricky getting the last bits out when you get to the bottom of the bottle, but just do what I do and close the pump, turn the bottle upside down and just unscrew it to get those last few drops out. Otherwise you can just buy a new one, given this is such a bargain buy and you don't feel the need to squeeze every last drop out to get your money's worth, I'd go right ahead!
