Holiday essentials: Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser

If you are going on holiday this summer then you must try this!

Nivea first released their In-Shower Body Moisturiser in the UK last year. I picked it up as I read about it on British Beauty Blogger and I wanted to give it a try. I ending up liking it so much that I hailed it the best after sun I have ever used!

The basic premise is that you shower as normal and then at the end you wash yourself with the In-Shower Moisturiser and rinse it off... I know - I was sceptical too at first. But it works!

I was surprised that my skin really did feel moisturised afterwards, even though I had washed the product off. It looks like a creamy shower gel and has a really nice fresh fragrance. When you use it in the shower you need to stand out of the water flow for a few seconds whilst you apply it, so it has contact with your skin. But I didn't need to hang around waiting for it to soak in - I just washed it straight off and was good to go!

If you are anything like me on holiday then you will be very familiar with the post pool or beach shower, followed by the endless application of thick greasy aftersun. Then follows 30 minutes or so of 'soaking in' time whilst you lie around in a damp towel, before you can get yourself ready for the evening out. But you feel greasy and shiny all evening and any silky clothes just stick to you...

I do burn easily and have to really protect my skin from the sun, but sometimes I miss patches with my sun cream and then the aftersun is required by the truck load. But if I use the Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser after each shower then my skin feels really soft (but not greasy!) and helps hold onto that tan for a little longer. (If only they made a SPF version to prevent me missing those patches with my sun cream!)

The Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser comes in a few different forms. There is a normal skin and a dry skin version. But best of all - it is cheap!!

You can find it on offer at £2.37 for 250ml HERE.

I'm off on holiday next week and will definitely be taking this with me!
