I picked up this Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser from my local chemist last week, because being a regular gym-goer, sportsman and swimmer – I can suffer with dry skin courtesy of frequent showering and chlorine. Far from having the time to moisturise my body everyday, the catchy, “In-Shower Body Moisturiser” product name caught my eye.

Waiting for a moisturiser to absorb is listed as the #1 time thief (GFK UK U&A Study Body, 2010) – nobody likes to apply and then wait 5 minutes for it to absorb. Step forward the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser, which can be quickly applied and easily spread across the body after cleansing/ while you wash your hair – then rinse. That’s it. Good to go, and no waiting for it to dry.

There are two variants; a white bottle with Sea Minerals for normal skin and a blue bottle with Almond Oil for dry skin. A useful proposition for those with normal to dry skin, if your skin is dry to very dry then you’ll probably need a normal body moisturiser too. £3.56/ 250ml from good chemists.
