Nivea’s In-Shower Body Moisturisers have arrived!

Thursday, 12 September 2013

Yay – Nivea's In-Shower Body Moisturisers have finally arrived in South Africa. For those who don’t know about this new craze – it is the in-shower body conditioners/moisturisers – these products are used in the bath/shower (best in the shower) and rubbed onto the skin post-washing (they are not a soap!) They are then rinsed off gently, leaving the skin deeply moisturised meaning you can skip your usual body lotion application post-shower.

For someone like me these are miracle products as I hate applying lotion post-shower – I am generally cold and want to hop straight into my PJ’s or work clothes. I also bath/shower twice a day minimum (sometimes 3 times) which can strip the skin of its natural oils – however, using this my skin has remained really hydrated and has the most amazing glow to it post shower (thanks to the added oils).

This comes in two variants: one for normal skin and one for dry skin. I used them both and liked them both. I would probably opt for the one for normal skin going forward as I liked this smell better, but that’s just my preference.

Lush also launched their version of this called Ro’s ArganOil Body Conditioner. I love this too and it smells heavenly (and leaves the skin smelling amazing) but think the Nivea versions definitely hydrate more than the Lush one. I felt the Lush one washes off without leaving that hydration (although it leaves some, not quite as much as Nivea's). Having said that, I am not taking anything away from this one – it is stunning and one I would highly recommend. 

Price wise is what sways me to Nivea’s versions – they retail at R29.99 for 250 ml’s and R39.99 for 400 ml's (WIN!) while Lush’s retails at +/-R265 for 225 grams! You can make up your mind... In stores from October 2013.

  1. Oooooh, I'm so excited to try the Nivea ones! The LUSH one seems rather over-priced in my opinion...

    Can't wait for October to arrive!

    1. Yes the Lush one is heavenly, but at that price I was only using it on my upper body whereas with the Nivea one I feel more comfortable lathering it all over my body as it's cheaper :) Haha

  5. This is just what I need - I also like getting straight into pj's after a shower or bath! Can't wait to try the Nivea one. Lush is ridiculously overpriced!
