I love taking looooooong showers. And when that's done, I loooooooove slathering on body lotions or butters on my slightly damp skin to ensure it stays hydrated. But to tell you the truth, I end up lotioning only my limbs properly and I often feel sorry for my torso and back. It feels neglected and dry, but there's not much I can do about it. I mean you can't just drop your towel and start demonstrating gymnastic moves in order to moisturise your back and leave your two room-mates horrified and scandalized, can you? :P
Now the Good Goddess of Beauty must have surely decided to solve my dilemma, and that's how I stumbled across this amazing product while browsing online! Thank you, I love you!
Let's meet this new star, shall we...?
It's the all-new skin conditioner by Nivea, (OMG it's Nivea, I love Nivea!) claiming to give you silky, soft skin feeling.
I bought the dry skin variant that's enriched with Almond Oil. It comes in a very no-nonsense packaging of blue plastic with a flip top cap towards the base. This gets brownie points because I won't have to keep smacking the bottle on my palm to dispense the product once I've nearly used it up. (Goodness knows how crazy I go when my shampoo is almost finished and I keep trying to get every last drop out! Does anyone else do it too, or am I the only weirdo out there?)
Coming to the actual magic stuff inside the bottle. It feels like a thick hair conditioner, except that it's meant for your skin :P Spreading capacity will amaze you, I swear! And the scent is... yes you guessed it! The very familiar, very classic, very comforting Nivea smell. I personally can never get enough of it!
After using my Nivea Lemon & Oil shower gel, I quickly apply the conditioner to my body and let it sink in for 2-3 minutes and then rinse it off. My skin instantly feels soft and very smooth and what's more amazing is that this effect lasts even outside the shower! You can easily skip your moisturiser after using this. Yes, this takes care of all the dry skin woes, and if you're indulgent enough to follow up with a light lotion, my my, will your skin thank you for it!
On most days, I skip my limbs totally and use it only in my torso and back, and apply lotion on my hands-legs post-shower. But I have noticed that if I use the skin conditioner and my body lotion together, then my skin feels irresistibly soft and so pampered!
Will I be using it again? YES! Definitely! I will keep repurchasing it till it gets discontinued :D I'm so thankful Nivea brought us an affordable skin conditioner that does its job well. I'm in love with it!
Price : 250INR for 250ml
