Texture & Scent:


This lotion is a little runny, so it speads very well on your skin! :) The scent smells similar to the other Nivea body lotions - a clean, powdery soft scent which i like! :D

Packaging:




I bought the smaller bottle, so this one comes in a 75ml squeeze bottle with a flip top closure! There's another bigger one which contains 400ml and it comes with a pump.

Time Test:
This lotion took about 10 minutes or so to sink in, and my skin feels moisturized for about half a day before i have reapply.

Price & Availability:
This lotion is priced at RM6.70 which i think is pretty affordable! The 400ml pump version is priced at RM23.60. This lotion should be available at most Guardian / Watsons outlets and your local supermarket! :)

Usage:
I apply this liberally unto my limbs and body at night before i go to bed! :)


My $0.02:
I've gone through several bottles of the good ol' Whitening Milk Repair during my college days and i loved it, so i thought that i'll give this "extra whitening" version a try! :D

I cannot comment on the whitening power of this lotion because i went tanning in Langkawi so that really "defeated" whatever whitening this has done for my skin, lol! But in terms of moisturization power it is pretty decent for a drugstore product!! This product got rid of my scaly legs within a week of daily application!! :D I like the scent too as it reminds me of my college days!! :D

All in all i would recommend this to those who wants fairer skin for their bodies or simply looking for an affordable body lotion!! :D

  2. I'm allergic to Nivea and I can't seem to get into the routine of using moisturiser, other than my anti-stretchmarks cream.

  5. Hey! I just found you when searching for reviews of this product. Do you know if this would work on tanned skin?

    I'm from the UK and have white skin. 6 months ago, I went on holiday and got a dark tan, so now I have a brownish stomach which hasn't seemed to fade that much.

    I can't buy this lotion here in the UK so I'd have to get it from abroad. I'm trying everything to get rid of this tan and even out my skin tone! Do you think this would work?

  6. Hmmm... it should work on sun exposed skin as per the description, but everybody is different so i can't say for sure! It did work for me though, but i was just a little more tanned than usual! :)

    HTHs!
