Trial Team review
The body lotion comes in a modern-shaped bottle with a pump nozzle, and therefore is very easy and hygienic to use.
The lotion is quite light in consistency (less rich than a cream) and the fragrance is also just right.
I used the lotion after showering, and I found it locked in the moisture wonderfully. I used it all over my body and it absorbed into the skin quickly. I found my skin stayed moisturised and soft for at least a day.
The lotion claims to firm the skin within 2 weeks - I have used the lotion for 2 weeks already and have not really noticed any firming change (however I am 40 years old and may need more time!)

Great value moisturiser
I was thrilled to receive this to trial ~ thanks BH x
I've been really impressed with the whole Q10 range and this product was no different. I loved the pump pack and the bottle was huge. My skin, especially on my legs is pretty dry so i love rich creams. This cream, though rich absorbed quickly and felt super moisturising. I didn't find it greasy at all and my skin felt moisturised all day. My only gripe was that it was very heavily perfumed, this wouldn't be a problem at night but during the day it overpowered my perfume.
I didn't actually find much to the firming part but as an everyday body moisturiser it's a winner :)

Trial Team Review
As part of the Trial Team I was sent a 400ml bottle of this product. It has the standard curvy shaped bottle which Nivea seems to use for all their differant types of body moisturisers. This one comes with a pump which is fantastic and certainly makes application so much easier. Im not sure that the smaller bottle has this pump feature as the ones i have seen just seem to have the flip top lid.
The Bottle claims on the front that this body lotion with Q10 plus will Firm the skin within 2 weeks.
I started using this product every night after my shower and used it all over my legs,butt, stomach and arms. I did note that straight away it was a lotion that was absorbed into the skin and thankfully it wasnt one of those greasy body lotions that leaves your skin feeling sticky. The following morning after the first application i noted that the skin on my legs was feeling really lovely and soft and after a couple of days the skin on my arms didnt look as dry or old.
My first weeks use went well and then i had a break of 3 days as i went into hospital. Once I got back home i was back into using it again but i did note that even though i had missed 3 days use it wasnt like my skin suddenly went down hill...it held onto the improvements it had gained from the week of use. During my second week of use i noticed that the skin on my stomach did actually appear to be looking firmer. Now Im not saying that my stomach now looks that amazing that im going to be prancing around in a bikini but it certainly has improved a little to my eyes. Im not so sure that anyone else would notice though but thats really not the point...I have noticed and Im happy.
I love the pump bottle.
I love the feel of this lotion on the skin.
I love how its easily absorbed.
I love the gentle changes in my skin.
I also love the scent of the product which i find pleasing to my nose.
I would happily repurchase this product.

This is another amazing product by Nivea which i absolutely love. It is enriched with skin’s own Q10 coenzyme, which improves skin regeneration and appearance.
It has a really nice smell, it absorbs really quickly and it’s fast drying.
It is not runny and not thick either which makes is easy to use and spread. I usually use it after i shower and it makes my skin very soft and smooth.
I highly recommend this moisturiser to everyone with dry skin

Ive been using this for about two weeks, having used and reviewed this a couple of years back I was curious to trial the product again and it was as hydrating and smoothing as I remembered it to be. In two weeks i don't feel firmer as such but my skin is definitely softer, I quite like the fragrance, its not as overpowering as some of the facial products I won't buy this product in the future however effective I think it is as this range still contains parabens which Im not a fan of, otherwise a great value product : )

Great All-Round Body Lotion
I love the pump dispenser, because it's easy to control how much product you want to use. Also, it's very hygenic, compared to lotions where you are constantly dipping you fingers in there to get the product out. The back is clearly labelled with the benefits and ingredients, which I like.
I love the consistency of the lotion. It's very thin and easily absorbed into my skin, meaning I can apply it and go! The fragrance is subtle and pleasant, just what I'm looking for in a body lotion. I can't really think of any negatives about this product, in fact. I will continue to use it, and would recommend it others. Thanks for including me in this trial.

(I reviewed this product as a TT Member.)
The lotion comes in a pump pack which you can close again, so travelling with this leaves no mess. Dispensing it is easy amd it has a lovely light fragrance. It feels quite watery yet rich.
I applied it twice a day and it really leaves moisturised, soft skin. However like other reviews, I cannot say that there was any noticeable forming action left - maybe this is only noticed after a long-term basis.
Despite that, the rest of the benefits make it highly-recommended as a moisturiser leaving genuinely silky-soft skin.

another great from nivea
I love this product, my skin dries out with change in the season. So I am always looking for great moisturiser that doesnt irritate, not too greasy and smells nice as well.
This ticked all the boxes for me, not sure if it firmed or tightened the skin, but I honestly dont mind. I am happy with the moisturising job it has done. another great product from nivea

A lovely product. Keeps my skin moist and feels smooth on my skin. The pump pack is a great idea as there is no mess and you get the right amount. It has a plesant scent, not too strong so it doesn't clash with perfume. I haven't really noticed any firming action, however it may need prolonged use. I would purchase again just based on the feel that it leaves on my skin. It is non greasy and very light to apply.

Moisture but not firmness
Firstly, love the presentation, the pump bottle is so convenient and easy to use. Packaging and info on bottle is great.
Fragrance was too strong, I prefer none or more natural.
Absorption is fast and easy. No residue. Having said that, it was only a light moisturizer for my body and I noted that the bottle said it was for normal skin, rather than dry skin. I need something much more rich.
