Review Nivea Body Care Line

Hello, lovelies~ Happy Monday! I hope everyone is doing well at the start of the week. No more 'I hate Mondays' now. ^_^

One question before you stepped out of the office for lunch, " Have you applied sunscreen for your body?", but if you read this in the afternoon during coffee break, then my question is, "Have you reapplied your body lotion in an air-conditioned environment?"

Well, if you're looking for a body lotion, with or without sun protection, I have a review for you~ Thank you to Nivea Indonesia for sending me these products for review. So, let's read on~

Nivea UV Extra Whitening Body Lotion

Packaged in a white bottle with a flip cap, it houses 100 ml of body lotion. The bottle is kinda cute. I first thought that the dispensing end needs to be pushed to get the product out. 

One of the moisturizing ingredient is Glycerin, which helps to absorb moisture from the environment into the skin. For sunscreen, the body lotion uses a combination of chemical sunscreens, namely Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane and Octocrylene, to name a few. Dimethicone, tapioca starch and denatured alcohol may be the contributing ingredients in keeping my skin non-sticky afterwards. There are no parabens in this body lotion, but fragrance is still present.

The scent is leaning towards a citrusy, fruity with a hint of sweetness. It spreads well and gets absorbed into my skin quite fast. I like that it doesn't leave a sticky and/or greasy feeling afterwards, but still manages to moisturize my arms. There is still no noticeable whitening, but I'll update you on that.

Nivea Night Whitening Body Serum

The white squeeze tube is occupied with a flip cap that has 75 ml of product inside. Despite the thin plastic, I found this size to be travel friendly. It doesn't spill easily and can pass through airport security.

The ingredient is almost similar to the UV Extra Whitening Body Lotion, but this one doesn't contain a large amount of sunscreen. White the UV Extra Whitening Body Lotion has a scent of a fruit, this one isn't much of a competitor. It smells weird on the verge of bad or something-that-is-about-to-go-bad. Mr. G usually goes away when I'm applying this at night. Luckily, the scent doesn't linger too long on my skin.

Despite the weird scent, I still like this moisturizer because of the non-sticky finish on my skin. It leaves my arms and legs soft and smooth all the way until morning. Compared to the other two, this one is slightly thicker in consistency, just slightly, though. 

Nivea Intensive Moisture Body Lotion

The navy blue bottle houses 100 ml of white body lotion that promises to give back moisture to the skin within 7 days. It is recommended for those who has very dry to dry skin.

Again, it mostly has the same ingredients, but a different consistency. This one feels kinda runny compared to the previous one in this post. However, this is the one that moisturizes the most for my dry calves, but doesn't have a sticky finish as well. 

All three of them have the same white color with the same non-sticky and non-greasy finish. Despite the lack of stickiness on the skin, it moisturizes my skin wonderfully without me having to apply it every hour or so. For a drugstore product, this may be one of my favorite.

Have you tried any of the various body lotions from Nivea?
