  • "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.

I was always kind of skeptical of in-shower body lotions, because most don’t seem to moisturize. I tried this one out and it leaves your skin silky smooth. I love the scent and it’s easy to use. You turn it into your skin as you shower and then rinse it off. No lotion needed after the shower. I love it!

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 LOVE this product. I have very dry skin and as soon as I get out of the shower, the dryness just gets worse. I started using this body lotion and my dry skin spots have disappeared. Totally recommend if showers dry out your skin.

Goes on easy and doesn't leave a residue.  I love this product because I feel like not only is my skin hydrated but it speeds up my morning routine.  It has a pleasant smell, but it doesn't linger long. I'd recommend this product to anyone.  My one additional recommendation would be to make sure you rinse/clean the shower after use as it can cause the tub to be slippery.

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

This product seems like a great idea. I don't always remember to put lotion on after I shower but boy do my dry itchy legs need it. How well does this product moisturizer? Would it work well for very dry skin?

Can anyone tell me if this product really works ? I'm always tempted to buy it but it's a bit pricey and I don't want to buy something that doesn't make a difference, even if I'm a couponer.

I've been wanting to try this type of lotion for a while now. I'm a little skeptical. Does it work and will it make my shower floor slippery? Is there a residue left behind?

Does this come completely off when you dry off?
