Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion

I confess. I’m not fond of putting lotions and body creams that much because I feel like it’s already hot here in the Philippines that I don’t need to feel any warmer than I already do. Plus I have always thought I’m still young, I don’t need to moisturize yet, my skin isn’t dry.
I guess as we grow older, things change, how we think changes too. Recently I discovered that my hands and feet are beginning to be drier. Eventually I know my whole body will get drier and drier. When I look at some photos of other people and I see that their arms look so dry, all I can think of is aging. And so I realized it’s time to make the change and do something about it.

Good thing I found a friend in Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion.

It fights 8 signs of skin dryness.
Honestly, when I received this- I thought it was just another lotion. I smelled it and I didn’t like the smell. It was too strong for me, it smelled like perfume. But I wanted to give it a try so I applied a small amount on my hand. I was surprised that it was easily absorbed by the skin, and immediately the scent disappeared. Whew! Thank Goodness because I cannot stand strong scents.
What makes this different is how easily absorbent it is and how watery the lotion is. How many times do we say we hate greasy sticky lotions? The Express Hydration lotion is just that! It’s non greasy, not sticky at all!

The consistency is very very light. When you touch is, it’s like it dissolves into small particles of water. This reminds me of iWhite’s Skin Whitening Aqua Moisturizing Cream (review on that to follow).

 Look at how watery and light it is!
It dries quickly but moisturizes the skin very well. Since it dries really fast, there’s no need for me to sit still and wait for the lotion to dry. I can already do whatever I need to do right after application because it already is absorbed fully by the skin. Great right?
It’s pretty long lasting too. I apply it at night after showering and hours after that, right before bed time, my skin is still soft.
I also like the fact that even after application, I don’t look scaly. My skin doesn’t look like it’s a snake’s body because of the scaly texture the lotion leaves. And when I do the scratch test, it perfectly shows that my skin is very well hydrated.

Even Pooh loves my lotion! πŸ™‚
I can’t say that this is my H.G. lotion just yet because I’m just beginning to appreciate lotions in general. But I have to say that this is a very good candidate! And it definitely has everything I’m looking for in a good body lotion. πŸ™‚ I recommend this to everyone, even though it says that it’s for normal to dry skin. I feel like even oily skinned people can also benefit from this since it feels very light anyways. Maybe you guys can check it out and see for yourself. πŸ™‚
