I am quite a freak about body lotions and there is a serious need of body lotion for my skin throughout the year. Yes I have semi-dry body skin and the most used body lotion brand of mine would be NIVEA. I almost tried every single variant that is available in India and also a few gifted to me from my Dubai-uncle. So, this time NIVEA came up with a body lotion which is for night time and to de-tan the skin, is called NIVEA Night Whitening Skin Moisturiser Body Lotion. I was really excited as I told you guys already in my press release post, and I have used it for 3-4 weeks now and I am now going to review it.

My Take on NIVEA Night Whitening Skin Moisturiser:
My skin is semi-dry which is even more painful as too light or too rich any of these types would leave my skin either dry or oily. But it is also next to impossible to find that perfect consistency body lotion for me, that too changing each season! After trying more than 20 different body lotions from different brands, I came to conclusion that there is no one body lotion that can be used for the whole year without any worry. But recently I have come across a near-holy grail body lotion that works magic on my skin!
NIVEA Night Whitening Skin Moisturiser claimed to be on scale 2 out of five in terms of consistency, which is very true. The moisturiser is quite light and only massaged into the skin, it is almost invisible but giving the skin perfect balance. I love using it even in day time, when staying at home. I use it just before going to bed and it makes my skin feel very loved and soft. I see the result next morning which is nice, supple and smooth skin.
The moisturiser smells lovely, fruity and berry type, and is not over-powering or weird. It lingers softly onto my skin. Only a small amount is needed while applying and it does not dry up or vanishes from my skin any soon. I can feel my skin well-nourished even after 4-5 hours.
I am using this for almost a month now, and all I can say is I am in love with it! After using it daily I can totally see there is a hint of lightening the tans of my arms, but it is not entirely gone. My skin is much nourished and moisturised even in this dry-hot weather (50 degrees!).
The Good Points:
- Nourishing and moisturising.
- Light on the skin.
- Absorbs quickly without leaving traces.
- Smells nice.
- Makes skin soft and smooth.
- Helps in lightening tan after regular use.
- Easily available.
- Only a small amount is needed.
The Not-so-Good Points:
- No SPF (ofcourse, it is a NIGHT body lotion, but if there was, it would have been the best!)
My Recommendation: I would surely recommend this body lotion to all who are dealing with tan and under-nourished skin. Using the lotion at night and waking up to a lovely skin is entirely an awesome idea on NIVEA’s part. And I am really happy using this daily and would continue it.
