I love this product! I use it everyday after my shower and it covers and seeps into my skin like a dream. It nourishes my skin and with the added benefit of almond oil, I know its going my skin some good. I love it!

Does the job
Average moisturiser. It is cheap and does the job but after moisturising I do find that it does feel sticky and it has not completely absorbed in yet. I recommend moisturising before bed and then you wake up with nice soft skin.

Average but wouldnt re-buy
Ok moisturiser, does the job, but feels a bit too thick & greasy

It has a soft fragrance and is especially smooth - I used it on my shoulders as a trial run and wow. I loved it they really felt as it says nourished. I will defintely be buying more

This is easy to apply, soaks in well, has a nice light smell and my skin is soft and supple after using.

I'm a bit on the fence about this product. It's cheap and goes on smooth but there's nothing wowing about it. Feels like there is something missing...

I prefer Irresistibly Smooth Nivea Body Lotion
I bought this because I love Irresistibly Smooth Nivea Body Lotion (purple bottle) but I thought since it said "very dry skin" I thought this would be great. However, this is much thicker than the purple one. I like the scent of the purple one better and I find that that one sinks into my skin better (probably because it isn't as thick) and makes my skin feel silker.
Having said that, it is still an amazing moisturiser for dry skin. I got the pump bottle packaging which makes it really easy to use

Oily and doesnt absorb well
Found this way too oily, greasy on my skin. I use it if I'm staying home usually after my bedtime bath but definitively not if I'm going out and wearing a skirt or shorts. I likes the perfume though.

Not as good as the Irresistibly Smooth Nivea Body Lotion.
I like using this when my skin is very dry as it can be a bit oily as it is so rich.
- It is very long lasting, I would say 24hr like the bottle says.
- Nice packaging. Easy Squeeze bottle, a bit hair when you only have a little left to get the stuff at the bottom though.
- Nice smell, pleasant.
- Nice texture.
- leaves a bit of a sheen on your skin though.
- Takes a while to absorb, not fast like the Irrestistibly Smooth Nivea Body Lotion.
Pretty good buy, but I would rather go for the Irresistibly Smooth Body Lotion instead. I found it is more silky and smooth, and faster drying than this one.

Quite thick but fantastic for very dry skin
I used to use this for years but I stopped as it is quite thick and greasy. That said, I have tried it again and I find it works best if I apply it straight out of the shower and wait about 10 mins before getting dressed. I had really dry skin on my legs and this was the only thing that seemed to help so I will definately keep a bottle of this handy from now on.

THICK and moisturising
This is an extremely thick cream that requires a lot of rubbing into the skin and can take some time to absorb. It is very moisturising and leaves a lovely gleam on the skin, however I can understand that it may be too thick for some skins hence why it's for 'extra dry skin'. I think this is more of a night time moisturiser for after you shower but I wouldn't recommend this if you have to be out the door in minutes as this will stick to your clothes and will feel heavy on your skin if you don't let it dry for a good 20 minutes.

Im not really a fan of this moisturiser, makes me feel greasy and the scent is so strong and unpleasant.
Rating: Dec 18, 2011 8:15pm
i love this moisturiser. My skin feels super soft once using it, and I love the glow it gives also. The only downfall is that it is a tad bit greasy at first, but once it is rubbed in it is fine.
Rating: Nov 9, 2011 8:47pm
bit sticky but great for dry skin
It really hydrates the skin and leaves it with a nice shine and glow. the smell is really subtle too so it doesn't overpower perfume, a good moisturiser but could be a little too thick and oily for summer
Rating: Sep 12, 2011 3:49pm
this is a great product because you dont need much, its very inexpensive and fantastic for dry skin
Rating: Sep 5, 2011 5:35pm
great moisturiser but i found it to oily/greasy. i know leave it for when i have really dry skin. if i just want something quick i cant use this one i takes to long to completly soak in. it has a nice creamy smell to it. its great for just after shaving, it soaks in giving your leds the smoothest feeling.

very rich and moisturising
It absorbs well and really leaves my skin smooth, my dry skin is so much softer and always feel supple
Rating: Aug 8, 2011 10:08am
No more dry skin!
I keep buying this product even when some of the others are on sale- its thick and creamy, yet easily absorbed. Great size, not too large to store or carry if i go away but still value for money.

BEST BODY CREAM EVER!
I won a free bottle of this product through facebook and i cant believe how good this cream feels and smells.I have had very dry skin on my legs for years but not anymore thanks to this brillant product.My flaky dull legs are now soft and healthy looking thanks to nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser.Within the first day of using this product i noticed a difference.It also smells divine.Definatley a product to try if you have had the same problem as me.

Good after showering
I bought this product to enter a competition, didn't win the comp, and put this in the cupboard. Recently got it back out of the cupboard to give it a go. Perfect for use after showering when you are still a bit damp. It applies well and easy to rub into skin. I don't think it is greasy at all, you have to give it time to absorb into the skin. Great for arms and decolletage and on your legs the morning after shaving. Another good product from NIVEA.

perfect for really dry skin!
i use this now and again... being winter I've recently brought another bottle to help keep my skin nourished. I must say its great on very dry areas and helps keep skin soft. i love using it on my elbows, knees and heels! works great keeping those tough dry skin areas moist!

Great for dry skin
I've got quite dry skin on my legs so I decided to try this product. The product is quite oily at first when you apply it but it is absorbed surprisingly fast. It is nourishing and moisturizing, the only downside is that the scent is quite overwhelming.

OILYM, REALLY OILY.
Ifound this moisturiser really ioly and sticky. Then again it works wonders. my skin felt instantly smooth and the lotions smelt delicious! it also leaves your skin super shiny!
Rating: Jul 8, 2011 4:19pm
Smells nice but very greasy
The only reason I keep buying this is because my Grandma used to use this and the smell reminds of her
It's very thick, very oily and doesn't absorb very well and it's only good for winter when I put a lot of clothes on..in the summer when I'm wearing shorts I find that everything sticks to me

its not greasy at all and has a divine smell. leaves my legs soft and smooth

it smells amazing and absorbs easily. leaves my skin really hydrated and I apply it daily now that its winter.
Rating: May 24, 2011 1:47pm
I love Nivea products, so I thought I'd give this one a go, and I wasn't disappointed. The cream is luxuriously thick, but you do need to use a little more to get an even coverage compared to most creams. It soaks in well and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. I have sensitive, chronically dry skin, and this really does help (but i'd prefer Moo Goo full cream moisturiser any day). It also has quite a strong smell which i'm not so keen on. It is quite greasy, but that's good for my legs in winter because it lasts for long enough to do its job. I'd buy this again... If I run out of my Moo Goo!

Smells nice & works wonders
This moisturiser is so rich and smells divine!
I absolutely love this product as it hydrates my skin perfectly leaving it glowing and healthy. I have been using this product for years and will keep using it because it is absolutely amazing!

A excellent moisturiser for night time
This product is fantastic for my dry and irritated skin. I use it at night as it is rather heavy. I do find it slighly too heavy for day use and also on warm weather days. Though one of my favourite products in the winter weather. It leaves the skin feeling soft. Has a nice subtle fragrance also.
Rating: Mar 22, 2011 4:28pm
Not so great
I bought this from Priceline as the one I usually use (Nivea irresistibly smooth body lotion) was not on the shelf. I find this body lotion too greasy and hard to rub into my skin. I have to rub it several times for it to desolve and my hands get so greasy. My legs don't feel as soft as they do when I use the other product but I do find that this one is good for my feet before i go to bed although I need to put socks on straight after or I leave foot prints on my bathroom tiles.
Rating: Mar 9, 2011 9:12pm
I love it! It's so moisturising and really great for everyday use to make sure your skin never becomes dry and flaky! I use it for my legs
Rating: Feb 25, 2011 9:14pm
Perfect for very dry skin
Really rich and thick - need to keep rubbing it in for some time for it to be absorbed. But, it is perfect for very dry skin and offers long lasting moisture for at least 24 hours. Great for legs.
Rating: Feb 17, 2011 7:40pm
Love, Love, Love!
I really love this moisturizer it lives up to everything it says it would do, it cures dry skin, doesn't contain any parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, smells pretty good, and actually does keep my skin moisturized for 24 hours, if not longer! I would recommend this to anyone!
Rating: Feb 16, 2011 11:05pm
The only way to use this is to put it on your legs at night a bit before bed, or your feet then put some socks on to really get your feet soft.
Rating: Feb 15, 2011 2:30pm
its not too greasy like some nivea creams, and it has the unique nivea smell still. just lovely . stayes moisturised for ages.
Rating: Feb 10, 2011 9:56am
I know it says that this lotion is for very dry skin, but I use it all the time on my normal skin. It really does hydrate for 24hrs, and I don't feel that I need to reapply for a good 2, sometimes 3 days. It's that good. Non greasy, soaks in lovely and gives you gorgeous and ridiculously hydrated skin!

Nivea Body is a lovely moisturiser
Because my skin can become dry especially around the legs I love this moisturiser and put it on most days to keep my skin supple and moisturised all the time

Easily absorbed and left skin feeling smooth
As the blurb says it is great for the care of dry skin. I’ve used many moisturises that only last a couple of hours or are really greasy but this one is different. My skin is always left hydrated it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky and absorbs into the skin really well.
Rating: Oct 4, 2010 8:07pm
when i bought this product at first i thought the cream was a little too thick for my skin but after using it for a while i realised that it really nourished my skin and kept it supple and smooth. its great for using after fake tan, i like the smell and it lasts all day! my skin is no longer chapped or dry!!!

Lovely and Winter Rich
This lovely scented cream from Nivea is indeed thick and rich. It is a lovely thick white cream that absorbs well into even the driest of skins. I found it best applied straight after my bath or shower, and on wet askin, as it penetrated deeper and didn't leave a greasy film. I also used it on my hands and feet, and slipped socks and gloves on and went to bed. My feet and hands were much smoother in the morning and also soft and smelt nice. I recommend this especially this in Winter when skin is drier, however as a treatment at other times during the year, will keep your skin soft, smooth and supple.

Smooth healthy skin
I applied this 5 minutes after getting out of the shower and it absorbed nicely into my skin without leaving a white residue. I also put my clothes on straight after and they went on without getting marks which was great. Often after applying moisturiser and putting on clothes they are a little tricky to put on because they stick to my skin but this Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser I didn't have a problem. My skin is much softer and has a subtle scent that I like.

Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser
I actually won this bottle of moisturiser, and quite frankly have been so happy with it, that I just had to do a review to rant and rave about it for a little while. As soon as I picked up this very generous 250ml flip top bottle of moisturiser, I tested to see how it went, as I was starting to get the fish scales appearing. I was quite sceptical at first as at first glance it appears to be quite a heavy and rich body moisturiser, but looks can be totally deceiving when one's skin was as dry as mine was that particular day. I was totally amazed at how it just sunk into my thirsty skin without an oily feeling afterwards, just beautiful soft and moisturised skin, that was oh so soft to the touch. I did require quite a bit that particular day to get me going, but with regular use I am finding myself to be needing less and less. I can trust that with the added Vitamin E and Almond Oil, my skin can only get better and better from here on in. The smell is lightly fragranced, and is quite appealing. I really can't falter this product in any way shape or form, thanks Nivea for a truly wonderful body moisturiser.

Would be good for very dry skin
I found this a bit too thick for my normal skin, and the fragrance too lemony, like a cleaning product? But it does spread and absorb well so would be a good option for a different skin type.

A great cream for after the beach when skin is hot or burnt and needs extra loving care. Rich and moisturising.

I love using this in winter but fnd it a little heavy in Summer, I use the lighter version in summer as it works better in the humidity.

all time favourite
I aways go back to this product! In another review i read someone said it only lasted 24hours, really i find this with most anyway and i apply it morning and night so i personally don't encounter this problem.
Oh and its so cheap too. My skin is very dry and this works wonders!
Rating: Sep 7, 2009 8:33pm
Works well for 24 hours - but not much more than t
I've just recently started using this moisturiser as a daily substitute for Sorbolene. The price is good and it smells much better. I tend to use a lot and it does leave my skin feeling very soft, but surprising it only works for 24 hours (just like the name suggests) after which my skin felt very dry again. Also, you do need to reapply it if your skin is exposed to water.

I ran out of my regular moisturiser so I pinched some of this from my mum. The first thing I noticed about this lotion was the smell. It smells gorgeous and clean! My skin feels soft and smooth. I might have to get me a bottle of this stuff!

nice and thick
Great for us who have dry skin I use this body cream all the time the cream is nice and thick not thin and runny my skin gets dry and itchy in winter this cream keeps it feeling soft and hydrated one to keep in the cupboard

Don't like it that much
Bought it because it was cheap (one good thing) but I really don't like the smell of it? It smells a bit sour? and a bit like cheese?
It really just ran out of the bottle, no squeezing involved.
I just threw it out because its not worth using.
Rating: Mar 28, 2009 4:16pm
I used this for a while and it was super moisturising but still runny enough to spread easily over the body. It definitly helped to fix up my scaly legs (gross, sorry!) and it has that lovely classic 'Nivea' smell. The only reason why I don't use this anymore is because I use the Nivea Creme jar as an all purpose for my face and body.
Rating: Mar 17, 2009 8:17pm
I love this product and use it religiously. especially in winter! great for spray tanners
Rating: Mar 14, 2009 1:54pm
This lotion works brilliantly for my dry skin. It moisturises well and the skin feels very hydrated, nourished and so soft.
However, its texture is really thick and rich, so I usually need quite a substantial amount of the product to apply over the legs, arms, etc; plus it takes a bit of time to spread and rub it in.
It also can feel too heavy in summer heat, but during the winter season – this lotion is a must-have!

Nivea Creme in lotion form
Fans of Nivea creme will love this one. It has the same fragrance and is very thick and moisturising. Great for dry skin and skin that is exposed to the elements. Very good product, use at night and in the morning skin is very soft.

This did nothing for me at all, i have dry skin and it felt tighter and dryer after using this. i find that happens with most nivea things tho.

great for dry skin but shiny
This is really good for dry skin, and because its not a pump bottle you can carry it in your handbag knowing it wont spill/leak. I used it when i was sunburnt. It is very shiny looking, which is good for using on your legs, it is also thick so you have to spread it out, but it rubs in easily. Not greasy at all. Good product.

This cream is lovely and thick and very moisturising. It needs more time to rub in and absorb and is a little greasy so I only use it at night before bed.

Nivea is one of my fav moisturising brands and this is one reason why. It's inexpensive, comes in a large bottle and is nicely scented. And of course, it is very effective, a bit rich but great for arms and legs. A must-have for dry winters.

Nivea Nourishing Lotion for Dry Skin
I love this moisturiser in the cooler months, I been using this product on & off for the last 4yrs & keep coming back. Its magic ingredient is bee's wax, really conditions the skin & locks in moisture. I will continue to purchase this product in the future as delivers the right amount of moisture.
