Nivea In-Shower Body Milk

As you could have noticed by now, I really rarely talk about cosmetic products. It’s not that I don’t use them, it’s just that I find them all basically the same. Very rarely do I get surprised by any of them and feel that they need to be reviewed.nivea2

I admit, I am not a Nivea fan. Their facial products wreak havoc on my skin and I avoid them completely. I ended up with this in-shower milk because you got a shower gel for free with it, and my boyfriend always needs some.

I am now on my second bottle (this time the 400 ml one) of this in-shower milk (the blue one, for dry skin).

When they say in-shower milk, it’s exactly what they mean. I, for some reason, thought it was a shower gel that made your skin feel like you put lotion on it.

But no, it’s a body milk made to be used on wet, washed skin. You do your regular wash routine and then you apply the in-shower milk to your wet skin and rinse it off. All done!

For someone who needs to put something on my skin both evening and morning, this is a time-saver. I admit to being lazy and putting lotion after a shower requires much longer than putting this in shower. You just slather the in-shower milk while anything you apply to dry skinΒ basicallyΒ needs to be massaged in.

So, yes, my lazy self loves the fact that I save time because I put Nivea in-shower on me. πŸ™‚nivea

We’re not having a winter now so I can live with the feeling this in-shower milk gives my skin but if it were really cold, I would need something stronger for my dry skin.

It’s probably going to be perfect in spring and summer. But I find it perfect for my lazy lifestyle already.

    Sounds like something lazy-me should try too πŸ™‚ I’m all with you on loving time-savers in terms of daily routines.

      As I usually shower in the evening, all I want to do is get to my book as soon as possible, without too much hassle, but I still need to apply something to my skin because it will itch otherwise.
      This is a perfect time-saver for me. πŸ™‚

    I’m not a fan of Nivea either. But every time I see a commercial, I say to myself that I should try this, not so much because of being lazy but because of lack of time.

      πŸ™‚ And here I am as well, pointing you in that direction. πŸ˜‰
      Try it and see if it helps with lack of time.

    I need to try this. I am the laziest when it comes to body moisturizering. I will walk the ends of the Earth of baby the heck out of my face but shamefully neglect the rest of me. Maybe something like this is exactly what I need! I do find Nivea products to be strongly scented and sometimes interfere with my perfume. Did you find this to be the case?


    • Ines January 19, 2014 at 13:23 Reply

      It is as strongly scented as all of their products but I didn’t notice it interfering with my perfume. Hope that helps. πŸ™‚
      I see I’m not the only one feeling lazy in my regular body routine… πŸ˜‰

        Good to know! Yes, I’m pretty lazy so this product sounds perfect!

    I do not like the idea of putting on a cream/lotion and then wiping it off with a towel. On the other hand, I have no problem with putting a cream on right after I take a shower (currently it’s one of Nivea’s body creams but this is their only product that I use, I’m not the brand’s fan in any other areas). So even though this product isn’t for me, I’m glad you found something that makes your routine easier.

      Oh Undina, you got me worried I wrote it down wrongly. πŸ™‚
      You do not wipe it off with a towel, you rinse it off with water while still in shower. That’s why I like it so much – once I’m done in the shower, I just towel myself dry (like usual, no sticky residue) and I’m done. πŸ™‚
      That said, I also got a Nivea body milk for dry skin and even though I’m not bowled over, I’m rather satisfied with it.

        No-no, you explained it right. What I meant was that when I put something moisturizing on I expect it to absorb into my skin. If I’m washing it off with water, it doesn’t have time to absorb. If I’m not washing it off completely, I’ll end up wiping it off with the towel (not on purpose, but as I’m drying myself after the shouwer) – again, not enough to absorb. In my mind, I mean. If it works for you – great!

          Okay then. πŸ™‚

    I like the sound of this one a lot – I also love the name! I have been mega lazy at moisturising most of my life, as I do not care for that sticky feeling of lotion left on skin, and worry that it will make my clothes all sticky, as I don’t have time to let it properly sink in – if it ever does! This Nivea product sounds like an extension of one or two of my shower cremes, which purport merely to have cleansing properties, but which seem to leave a light moisturising film on my skin sometimes.

      Oh yes, Vanessa, this in-shower milk is definitely made for the lazy among us. πŸ˜‰

    Another lazy soul checking in. πŸ™‚ I may have to give this a go!
