Wow! I bought little amazon purchases just so I could get this Nivea lotion"add on" for $5 bucks!!!!! What a deal! I sort of cheated and even ordered five lotions on one amazon order. Don't tell anyone!! This stuff smells better than any lotion, is so light andthe shea butter delivers such softness that lasts. I highly recommend you stock up on this product!
OK, so I have to admit, I only purchased the Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion to mix with my homemade body butters/creams, to give them a little more body and creamy texture. I tried it right out of the box and fell in love with it "au natural". Don't get me wrong, I love my homemade lotions too, but sometimes you just can't make it, be it time, ingredients, desire, whatever. When that happens, this is my go to lotion. I started making my own because I could never find the right lotion for me, and my skin type. I have extremely dry skin, and in the winter it becomes even worse. My hands have reached the point of splitting and bleeding, although my elbows, knees and feet haven't gotten to that point (thank Heavens), they do become very dry and chapped. My dermatologist prescribed Eucerin cream, and though it may be soothing, it did not remedy the problem. THIS lotion does!!! I purposely stopped using my homemade remedies for one week, and just used the Nivea, and the dry, chapped skin stayed away. In it's place, I have soft, supple, and yes touchable skin. This lotion is amazing! Light, creamy, airy, fast absorbing, non greasy and pleasant smelling, and the best part... it's inexpensive, and I don't have to do any work to get it! I now have a staple that I can rely on for my skin care. Don't hesitate to make this purchase, just do it, you'll be glad you did!
I am really picky with lotion and this is excellent! There is a light, non-restricting scent. Unlike some that immediately kick in one's asthma. This is silky smooth, a little goes a long way, softens one's hands, and is slightly but not too oily. Easy to use as the pump top is large so one can press down easily and one's hand does not slip off. Will purchase when empty. Highly recommended.
I have used other Nivea products in the past and as expecting the rich thick consistency I have had before. This product is a lot more liquidy than I was expecting. Like others reviews stated..it is quite fragrant. I do not dislike the smell, but it is a strong perfumy smell that doesn't go away. So wouldn't mix well if you are fragrance wearer. It also hasn't really smoothed or revitalized my skin. I was recently in hospital and it ruined my skin. I was hoping this would moisturize it and bring it back to life. It just seems to coat my skin rather than absorb in and moisturize.
We go through lotion like crazy because my daughter has excema and in the summer the flare-ups are really bad so we have to use lotion 2-3 times per day. This stuff smells great and doesn't leave her skin feeling greasy and irritated. The redness goes away because she stops scratching at it when using this lotion. We rotate through different lotions based on affordability and this one is a wonderful price at only $4.99!! Will continue to buy and use in the future.
