Oh my gosh, I love Nivea In Shower Body Lotion! My daughter told me about it and I was skeptical at first because you apply the lotion after washing but while you are still in the shower. Then...you just rinse it off! It sounded a little like washing money down the drain but I was willing to give it a try since I get very dry skin in the winter and daughter insisted.
I chose the cocoa butter scent (there is shea butter too) and it smells divine. At first, daughter said to apply with a shower puff but I thought too much product was 'lost' in the layers of mesh and they can harbour bacteria. So I tried just dispensing a tablespoon amount into my palm and applied as if I were simply using lotion on dry skin. That worked very well, if I worked in sections. After applying you immediately rinse it off and get out of the shower to towel off.
Skin is soft and silky with no sticky feel. It's so fast and really works - no winter scales on my skin this year! I think of this as a first line of defence against dryness and since I love the fragrance, I'm actually sticking with it (I usually get lazy and give up on traditional moisturizers). I am a believer now and will continue to stock this lotion in the shower. I just wanted to let you know it does work and it's not expensive.
