I’ve recently been receiving samples of the Nivea In-shower Body Milk enclosed in magazines. I’ve never tried an in-shower moisturizer before, so I decided to give them a try. The packages come with $1.50 off coupons so I figured that if liked the product, I could redeem the coupons before they expire (I am cursed with coupons, I always only remember about them the day after they expire! Anyone else?)
This is what I received in the magazines:
Folds open to reveal this:
Close up of the packet:
It’s kind of concerning there’s a warning that the tub can get slippery when using this product!
Pictorial instructions from the Nivea site:
That last icon makes me giggle – she’s flashing me!
The product itself:
It has a thick lotion consistency and smells like the classic Nivea creme in the tin.
• It feels waxy upon rubbing it onto the skin, making it difficult to spread around
• There’s no lather
• It leaves a film on my skin and water just beads off
• I don’t feel clean
• My skin does feel soft and moisturized after I towel dry
I’ve tried this a few times now, and I’ve decided I wouldn’t purchase the full size. Too bad, now I don’t get to use those $1.50 off coupons!
Have you tried this? What are your thoughts on this new trend of in-shower moisturizers? Any that you’d recommend?
