I received a sample of this in shower moisturiser and the first thing that I always do is study the ingredients. I am very conscious of using harsh ingredients on my skin so I like to have a read first. Whilst they are not the worst ingredients I have seen in a shower product, there does seem to be a fair amount of alcohol in the product. Whilst I would not be keen to use this on a daily basis, I was intrigued to trial this somewhat 'innovative' product.

The product itself is a medium consistency white semi opaque cream and the scent is the stereotypical Nivea, powdery fragrance. Nothing ground breaking but I like this continuity and the scent is pleasant and fresh. The idea is to wash away your daily dirt with your normal product and then rinse. The in shower moisturiser is applied after this step. The cream applies easily to the skin and creates a milky texture when it comes into contact with your wet skin. It is a real pleasure to massage the product as it glides easily and quickly across your body. At this stage I was not wholly convinced that it would moisturise my skin at all? As instructed you simply rinse away any residue before patting yourself dry. NOTE: This is an important step. Do not be tempted to wash away with another detergent based product as this will remove the moisturisation.
Remarkably my skin felt extremely moisturised, so much so that I found it a little overwhelming. I personally do not think that my skin absorbed the product as stated in the marketing but more so sat on the surface. I am assuming that the glycerine ingredient is the main cause of this as glycerine has a tendency to create a water tight barrier on the skin. I am not sure how I feel about this element as I believe that your skin should be allowed to 'breathe' at all times. The moisturisation, whilst impressive at first, does not last more than an hour and I did have a mild feeling of irritation an innovative product but I am unsure about the after effects. Genuine or synthetic??. I am unsure if this is the product ingredients or just the fact that there was a 'barrier' type residue sitting on my skin.
All in all this is not a bad shower product but as always I prefer to use a high quality moisturiser or oil after bathing (preferably of natural ingredients). I know my husband would be a big fan of this product as he will not moisturise after bathing. This would be a quick and easy method for him. For me personally I found this an extra chore in the bathing process as I would need to apply an extra moisturiser after using it.

Strongest points
Good sturdy and effective packaging. Pleasant scent. Easy to apply and rinse. Long lasting and good value for money
Weakest points
I found this unnecessarily time consuming and the moisturisation does not last long. Can also be a little dangerous in the shower tray
Summary
An effective product for those that are not obsessed with ingredients and moisturising after bathing. I found this product to be a little overwhelming on the skin.

Guilty as charged! I fell for the marketing hype, but this product was sadly disappointing.

User Reviews

Strongest points
The scent reminds me of Nivea Original. Feels luxurious on the skin. Easy to wash off. At first, leaves the skin feeling smooth and silky.
Weakest points
Definitely not a substitute for moisturizer - after a while my skin started to feel dry and itchy. A small amount of emollient bath oil is just as quick to apply, and is much more effective.
Summary
Handy if you're in a rush, but not particularly moisturizing.

Discover the moisturiser that works in the shower says the marketing blurb on the Nivea website. Nivea's latest campaign 'Dare to Dip' sees the launch of their latest products. Well I can tell you it was a novel idea. You are invited to take a shower, use your normal shower gel and then the In Shower Moisturiser. It did indeed leave my skin feeling silky and smooth. I was then invited to dry off and finish off with the Nivea Soft moisturiser. Sounds like double marketing and a sales boost? I would advise using one or the other. I preferred the In Shower moisturiser. Give it a try and judge for yourself.

Leaves skin refreshed and nourished.

Double bubble if you have time? Shower gel and then this product. A bit of messing about and increased water usage.
