My Experience with NIVEA Pearl & Beauty Shower Cream Oil:
Packaging: NIVEA Pearl & Beauty Shower Cream Oil comes in the ususal NIVEA shower gel packaging, in flat bottle with a flip top cap. The packaging is not so fancy yet, not so ugly too. The bottle is totally spill-proof and travel-friendly. A blue loofah is free with this shower cream which is quite nice and very much usable.
Texture & Smell: The shower cream is a baby pink colored cream which is rich in texture. And its consistency is not so thick, a bit runny. It lathers very well when mixed with water.
The smell is very nice. A beautiful floral scent mixed with other lovely scents, which is quite exotic and seductive too. Bottom line, I loved the smell (before I say too much!).
My Take: I love using shower gels, but creams, not so. Why? You will know, keep on reading.
The rich creamy shower cream lathers very well, and too much actually. So, after my bath, I see a flood of froth on my bathroom floor! Then again, I need a lot of time standing beneath the shower head as the slippery film of this shower cream stays on. And, at last, I give up and leave it that way.
My skin feels absolutely balanced after takng bath with this, I do not feel the urge to use body lotion or body oil even on cool days of rainy season. The lovely smell of this stays for a bit on my skin which makes me feel very good. It also protects my skin from body odor on hot days to some extent. It also make smy skin soft and smooth after every use. Overall, this a decent shower cream for me.
The Good Points:
- Rich creamy shower cream.
- Smells divine.
- Affordable price. Lathers well.
- Cleanses skin well.
- Beautiful smell stays on, and supresses body odor.
- Does not dry out my skin.
- Easily available.
- Makes my skin soft and smooth.
- 250ml will go long way.
The Not-so-Good Points:
- Leaves slippery film afterwards.
My Rating: 4.4/5.
My Recommendation: This shower cream is totally meant for dry skin to normal skin. My skin is semi-dry, and I quite like this. Although, it leaves a bit of slippery film, but the beautiful smell and lovely texture of this rich shower cream is what my skin totally loves. It also makes my skin soft and smooth, you can definitely give this a try!
