One of my biggest winter skin woes is dry skin. And doesn’t help that moisturizing is such a cumbersome task either. This January, Nivea is launching a brand new product that revolutionizes the concept of moisturizing. It’s called Nivea In-Shower Body Milk. Now it’s not a body wash and it’s not a lotion, it’s actually a skin conditioner that you apply in the shower and rinse off. The result: remarkably moisturized skin that’s soft to touch without a sticky feel.
I was excited to have the opportunity to try Nivea’s In-Shower Body Milk and I have to say I really love it. At first, the concept of moisturizing while still in the shower was a little foreign to me. But then I thought, we all condition our hair after we wash it, why shouldn’t we be conditioning our skin as well? It takes all the hassle and extra time spent on moisturizing, and seamlessly integrates it into your shower routine.
So how does it work?
Start off by with your usual cleansing routine, and once you are done apply the Nivea In-Shower Body Milk to your wet skin while you are still in the shower. Then rinse it off, dry yourself with a towel, and you’re ready to go! It’s just a simple as that. The Nivea In-Shower Body Milk is specifically formulated with moisturizing ingredients like almond oil that can be quickly and effectively absorbed by wet skin. Once you’re done, you’ll be left with soft hydrated skin and a non-sticky feel immediately once you’re out of the shower.
Now here’s a special bonus tip – you can also use Nivea In-Shower Body Milk to give yourself skin softening hand treatment!
My hands become extra dry during the winter season. So I’m always look for new ways to keep them hydrated and soft. I decided to try using Nivea In-Shower Body Milk to give myself moisturizing hand treatment, and it worked out amazing! Before bed, I cleansed my hands with warm water and soap. Then I massaged a modest amount of Nivea In-Shower Body Milk through my hands for a minute or 2, focusing on dry areas like my cuticles and fingertips. Next I wrapped my hands up a hot towel for 3-5 minutes and let all the goodness soak in. Then a quick rinse in warm water and towel off like usual, and you’ll be left with baby-bottom soft hands!
If you have dry skin like me, this product is heaven sent! Not only does it do a great job at moisturizing and providing long-lasting dry skin relief, but it actually makes my morning routine so much easier! (Like who doesn’t want an extra 10 minutes sleep in every morning?) Nivea In-Shower Body Milk is set hit stores in January 2015. Priced at just $7.99, you can find it in drug, pharmacy and mass merchandise stores across Canada.
