I picked this body lotion on my recent shopping haul, I wanted the very dry skin version as my skin is super dry and in this chilly weather it needs even more moisture than regular months. I told the SA to hand me the very dry skin lotion and she handed me the Nivea lotion for normal skin, I was like don’t you know the difference in very dry skin and normal skin and then she ordered her mate to give me this version, though I was not rude to her but said in a very polite manner. After using it for few days, I’m here to reveal my experience with this lotion.

My Experience with Nivea Nourishing Body Milk Very Dry Skin:
Nivea Nourishing Body Milk comes in a navy blue bottle with a flip open cap. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The smell of this body lotion is typical Nivea smell so if you have used any Nivea product, you can probably guess its smell. It is mild and pleasant. The consistency of Nivea Body Milk is quite flowy. I apply this lotion twice daily, once after taking bath and before going to bed at night and I don’t face dry skin or rough patches issue anymore after I have started using this lotion though my previous lotion worked well too but it’s kind of runny and sips better into the skin. When I use it after taking bath, it takes 10-15 seconds to get completely absorbed, I don’t mind rubbing it but that’s a huge time for rubbing a lotion and sometimes when I have to run to college soon then I face a lot of issues with rubbing it so much to make it absorb. It adds a nice sheen and gives a brightening effect initially on application which I love about it as I don’t like to see dullness on my hands. Overall, it’s a nice body lotion and will work for all skin types though it claims that it is for very dry skin but its light-weight formula makes it perfect for all skin types. It keeps my skin moisturized for a fair amount of time and I don’t feel the need to reapply it throughout the day. :yes:
