Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
That’s what I always hear from beauty experts and from everyday women I’ve met – they all swear that keeping their skin on their face and body adequately moisturized is their number one priority. Keeping your skin healthily moisturized will ensure it’s not damaged, dry and flaky and will improve its quality over time. Dull or dry skin tends to look lifeless and feels unpleasant to the touch!
I know this because I have dry skin myself. It’s the driest around my legs. I’ve always been self-conscious about the condition of my skin. I am an avid user of moisturizers and I can’t imagine my life without depending heavily on moisturizers. The biggest problem I have with moisturizing is that I always tend to forget to include it into my daily regimen being the absent minded person that I am, and I’m not a fan of the sticky residual feeling I get from most creams and lotions after application. I like feeling absolutely squeaky clean after a shower, and the thought of applying sticky products onto my skin when it is completely clean kinda irks me!
One thing I don’t forget to do is shower everyday. And with these NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioners sitting prominently on my shower rack, I won’t miss out on the important step of moisturizing my skin on a daily basis! I was very excited to test how well this works since I am a long-time fan of NIVEA’s trustworthy yet inexpensive body care products. I like that their brand is kept simple, effective and reliable so you always know you won’t be disappointed by what you get from them.
If this is your first time hearing of an In-Shower Skin Conditioner like me, you’ll be surprised by how ingenious the concept is. In the shower, the skin is moist & warm and it is prepped to better absorb the care ingredients. NIVEA In-Shower has a water-activated formulation that allows its nourishing ingredients to penetrate the skin at its best moment. The result is silky soft and hydrated skin for over 24 hours. It works the same way as hair conditioners!
NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioners come in 3 variants. One for normal, dull and dry skin. My personal favorite would have to be the intensive, since I have very dry skin.
Now let’s put this new product to the test. I’m ready to achieve noticeably smooth skin in 4 simple steps: Cleanse, Apply, Rinse, and Get Ready!
Before I start using the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner, I use a moisture device to measure my moisture percentage at the driest part of my legs (usually at my lower shin area).
Score: 48, which is within the dry category and this is thanks to my religious application of moisturizing products prior to NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner moisture test. Am honestly quite excited to see how much more hydration a rinse-off body lotion could provide. We’ll compare the results again after going through with the 4 steps that NIVEA recommends!
Step 1 – Cleanse up with your favorite soap.
I like keeping a supply of different soaps in my shower to indulge in aroma therapy sessions during my 20 minute showers! Everyone deserves to indulge in a nice hot shower after a hard day’s work. To me, showers are not just a necessity, it’s a time for me to relax and unwind. Tilt my head back under the running water and reflect on the day’s activities.
Step 2 – Apply and lather generously all over your body.
The texture is not overly sticky or oily so I didn’t feel uncomfortable spreading it over my body, in fact it’s very similar to hair conditioner and it was a pleasant experience to use. It has a mild scent that smells like freshly done linen – a NIVEA trademark, I reckon.
Step 3 – Rinse off and towel dry!
The rinsing process takes merely a few seconds, the product washes away quite easily with a spray of water leaving you feeling supple and smooth, you don’t have to scrub to get the excess off. All in all, it’s an extremely fuss-free process!
Step 4 – Get ready!
With your skin now feeling smooth and amazing, go out and flaunt those backless dresses and off shoulder tops! The NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner is a must-have in my daily regimen nowadays since moisturizing can be effortlessly done in the shower, my favorite part is how long-lasting the effects are without leaving a sticky residual feeling.
For the record, my moisture level on the exact same spot of leg increased from 48 to 60, which puts me in the hydrated zone! Woohoo! Also, this measurement was taken a few hours after my shower. I love how the results last all day, with topical lotions I used to have to re-apply halfway through the day which was quite troublesome sometimes.
My dry legs, back and elbows are no longer scaly and rough to the touch. I embrace backless dresses and short outfits that flaunt my legs with a new found confidence I never knew before. This has forever revolutionized the way I keep my skin soft and moisturized!
