Sample: Nivea In-shower Body Milk

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:
niveashowerbodymilk2


Folds open to reveal this:
niveashowerbodymilk3

Close up of the packet:
niveashowerbodymilk4
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:
niveashowerbodymilk6
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.

Thoughts:
• 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?

    1. So sad, I want to coupon so badly. You don’t understand, in Canada, coupons aren’t as abundant as it is in the US. I watch that show “Extreme Couponing” with a lot of envy… “stacking coupons”??? What!

  1. lol you made me laugh with your comment on the last image of the woman ‘flashing you’ lol!!
    I tried this and was quite disappointed (have a review on it). i feel like its a bit pointless…like taking two showers? isnt it faster to just use a spray moisturiser when out of the shower? it’s not really saving time, just adding an extra step in the shower + not hydrating enough if you have very dry skin

  2. I have tried the different kind (whitening, we have abundance of these in every product) and my skin got irritated. Had a few rashes so I discontinue using.
    I don’t know with this. But I’m not really solve with that slimy feeling it gives.

  3. I always save these samples (I got this same Nivea one!) and forget to use them. LOL. Guess it’s a good thing I haven’t tried this, huh?

    OMG in the US the stacking coupons are awesome. My mom would get these triple coupons from the grocery, then use them with a $2 coupon so she’d get $6 off a pack of bacon or whatever. Sometimes they give you money BACK (well I’m not sure if they actually give you money back, but you definitely get the item for free).

  4. I’ve used this in the winter when I have dry skin and it works well as a pre-moisturizer….I still follow with body butter. Haven’t used it since summer but I have been using the Jergens option which you don’t rinse off. I do seem to like this option more.
