  • "This is such a great product for dry skin, or even to apply after shaving in the shower... but this is NOT a body wash. I tried using it to shave my legs and it got all stuck in the blade... it really is a lotion. (still love it though- it doesn't claim to be a body wash afterall...my mistake)" in 51 reviews

I was really skeptical about this product after I first purchased it but I gave it a whirl and I really actually like it! I usually put it on while my hair is soaking in conditioner and it makes my out of shower routine much quicker 😂 Definitely rinse the tub out when you’re done because it can leave kind of a slick film if not rinsed off, I almost ate it coming out of the shower 🤦🏻‍♀️ I rated four stars because I wasn’t a fan of the smell at all, but it leaves my skin smooth feeling and doesn’t leave a residue or tacky feel.

I got a sample of this when I purchased Nivea body wash one time, and I was pleasantly surprised. It’s not something I would normally buy and am not sure about the price-point. I did like it and thought my skin was left just as hydrated as it would have been using a regular body lotion post-shower. But, I don’t like the idea of it “rinsing” off. It just doesn’t seem quite as effective. I liked it, but would probably not purchase it on my own.

This product wasn't terrible but i dont feel like it had even close to the same effect on my skin that regular lotion does. My skin already felt dry an hour after showering. You definitely would need to still use lotion after showering which pretty much defeats the purpose of buying this.

Don’t know what I did before discovering NIVEA Smoothing In-Shower Body Lotion its amazingly hydrating! I’m in love! Only negative thing is if you’re not exfoliating regularly & use this lotion you will notice the dead skin looking flaky! Sooo please exfoliate ladies lol

I give this 5 star because it works perfectly as an in-shower lotion should! I love the original lotion to the shea butter one, and this one helped a lot when I didn’t have time to apply lotion, and when I was in a rush. It smells so good, and when you get out the shower your skin is so soft and smooth. I recommend this to people who want soft skin but just don’t have much time. Be careful, you have to wash it down the drain really well or it may make your shower/tub slippery. Other than that I love it!

I wanted to like this because my skin felt very soft after use, but I just can’t get past the smell. It reminds me of a public pool with too much chlorine. Not fond of it, and will not be repurchasing

I bought this because my skin was really dry and I always forget to put lotion on before getting dressed. This works great for me I apply it before I get out of the shower. I wash and then use Nivea in-shower lotion and my skin feels moisturized all day long. It has a light fresh scent and leaves my skin feeling refreshed.NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion

I love this product! It’s great to use as a body wash and it doesn’t leave you feeling sticky! I have very dry skin and the she’s butter really helps me feel moisturized! Just make sure you rinse off well after you use it. It’s a great in- shower lotion!

Favorite body wash keeps skin perfectly moisturized extra soft and is easy to wash off. I also love that it does not leave skin with any stickiness. Not pricey either
