This was a moderately hydrating lotion which was prefect for summer use because I have much less dry skin and basically just need a lotion to keep my legs and arms looking sleek, smooth, and hydrated. I wasn't a huge fan of the sent, but all in all this was a pretty good buy. Scent I wasn't a huge fan of the fragrance. It smelled like oranges and other miscellaneous fruits. Absorption Skin just drinks up this formula in seconds. This product had a relatively light formula, which made it really easy for skin to absorb it. I liked how I didn't have to spend a lot of time rubbing in this formula. It only took a few seconds to rub this formula in, which was nice and convenient. Effectiveness I wouldn't say this was a very hydrating lotion, although it did keep my skin soft, smooth, and conditioned. I used this lotion during the summer time, when I'd wear shorts and tank tops all the time, so I really needed to make sure my skin was properly hydrated. When winter came and my skin got more irritated and dry, this product didn't really do that much. Basically, this is a light weight, lightly hydrating lotion that is good for summer use, but not so effective if you need to hydrate dry winter skin.
I love most Nivea products so I was eager to try the Nivea Body Happy Sensation Daily Lotion. For some reason, I didn't find myself too keen on this product. I found I really didn't enjoy the scent all that well to use it every day so now I keep the bottle next to my bed for when my husband is feeling in a good mood and he will massage my back using this product. I won't say I dislike this body lotion but it is far from one of my favorites. Scent I don't mind the scent of this Nivea body lotion but for me, it is nothing special, sort of like the same run-of-the-mill scents that many brands have. Absorption This product doesn't seem to absorb into my skin well, I have to keep rubbing for a while so I don't have lotion just sitting on my skin. It is not a greasy feeling lotion but it tends to have a "just sits there" feel. Effectiveness This Nivea body lotion is alright at moisturizing my skin but it seems to only feel that way for a short time. I have to keep re-applying this product if I want smoother feeling skin for a longer amount of time.
Overall, an excellent product. I really enjoy the scent and the way the lotion feels on my skin. I would probably buy it again. Nivea is a good company with great products and I know I can trust them. I would like to see this product moisturize even more than it already does as I need to keep reapplying the lotion throughout the day. But still, great product and I'd highly recommend it. Scent I really love the orange scent on this! It's not too strong but just enough to smell nice and not overly girly either - my husband doesn't even mind using it! Absorption Absorbs perfectly. Sometimes a little too quickly I think. I would love for it to moisturize just a little more than it currently does. Effectiveness Again, absorbs perfectly like it is supposed to, but I seem to need to put on this lotion more frequently than some other lotions that I have. It would be nice to see it moisturize more from the start, even if it doesn't last all day.
It is acceptable as lotion but I didn't notice any change in firmness of my skin. I used it daily after every shower. The scent is ok and it does moisturizer but that's about it. Scent The lotion smells good. Not great, but good. Absorption It absorbs quickly. Effectiveness I didn't notice a change in firmness of my skin at all.
I use Nivea's skin firming moisturizer on a daily basis. Since I lost a decent amount of weight I had really bad stretch marks and searched online forever for any sort of remedy for them and I read about Q10 and saw Nivea had it so I decided to give it a try. After a couple weeks my skin felt firmer on my stomach and legs and it had reduced the appearance of my stretch marks. They're still there of course but at least less noticeable. The lotion is great for everyday use. It isn't scented like anything so it just kinda smells clean. Also it doesn't leave me feeling slick or greasy. It absorbs quickly so I feel like I get a lit of use out if the lotion I put on and I can get dressed immediately after without worrying about my clothes sticking to me. I use it everywhere except my face. It might be fine for facial use, but my face is very sensitive unless I use a face lotion so I never actually tried it.
Overall, I really like this lotion. I think that it really feels good on my skin, and is helping to firm up my abdomen. Scent I love the scent of this lotion. It isn't too strong, and smells very fresh and clean. It's nice to have a lotion that smells fresh that doesn't smell like flowers or the ocean or the other popular fragrances that are out there. Absorption I feel this lotion is not greasy or oily. It always absorps completely and des not leave any feeling of residue orwetness on my skin for any length of time. It feels great on my skin. Effectiveness I do feel that my skin is firmer than it was before using this product. It is hard to use this product as much as is required to see the changes that are advertised on the bottle, so I maybe would see even more of a change if I used the lotion even more often than I do already. I feel like any lotion would have a difficult time really firming skin that has been stretched out by being pregnant with twins like mine has though.
First off, I really like most Nivea products. The Skin Firming Lotion with Q10 is no different. It's priced a bit higher than the regular Nivea body lotions, but I can understand why. The lotion is a great consistency, not too thick and creamy but not too runny either. It has a light, clean, fresh scent that doesn't linger very long. It absorbs quickly and not leave a greasy texture on my skin. I use it on my entire body but reapply often on my lower stomach. After having a child and losing weight, my lower stomach has some loose skin. I don't know if I would actually say that this lotion firms up my saggy skin, BUT, it does improve the texture somewhat. It looks slightly smoother and toned. I've used it on and off for about 4-5 months now and plan to buy more when my current bottle runs out. Overall, it's good but not a miracle product. Won't give you amazing results, but does make your skin look a bit nicer than the regular non-firming lotions.
Nivea's Skim Firming lotion really does live up to its name. With using it religiously for two weeks, I was able to see a very noticeable difference in my skin. I mainly focus on my thighs as after four kids, they have a little extra sag and jiggle. This tightened that stretched out skin right up. I was amazed and impressed. But let me be straight with you, this isn't miracle in a bottle. It can't turn a cow into a chicken, but if you just need a slight lift, this is your product. I am happy to say that this is affordable as well. You can pick this up at just about any regular store, no need to search online or go to a specialty shop. Ladies, if you have some loose and sagging skin after pregnancy, this will work for you. Scent Not overly offensive in the slightest. Absorption Goes on nicely and after a few minutes your skin will be dry and smooth. Not oily or greasy. No residue. Effectiveness This one is a ten! I have been extremely satisfied. Just need to remember to use daily.
Nivea lotion is generally good in that is non greasy, lightly and pleasantly scented and has a reputable brand. However, this lotion is seasonal in that it is great for tropical climates and can be used on African American skin in areas that are prone to hard water in the summer but it is not quite effective on the previously mentioned skin type in the winter as after use the skin quickly becomes dry and paper like again. However it is excellent in tropical climate Scent The scent is nice, pleasant, light and clean Absorption This lotion is easily absorbed into the skin during the summer time however it is not as absorbent on black skin in the winter or colder seasons and after applying sometimes it is necessary to wipe off lotion that the skin doe not absorb Effectiveness This product's effectiveness is directly linked and dependent on the climate in which it is being used in as well as the softness or hardness of the locality's water
