Never a dry moment with NIVEA’s In-Shower Skin Conditioner

Hello! I'm pretty glad people are still popping by to look for updates so I'm going to be really nice today and share a little on something new that's out in the market. The thing with our daily lives nowadays is how we're always in a hurry or we're just lazy. I know I am because my skincare regime has always been to pop in for a shower, come out and wipe dry then get dressed and begone. What isn't in the entire list is the fact that I should have stopped in between getting out of the water and getting dressed to apply on some lotion to my dry skin. But I didn't do that...obviously. It completely explains how I've gotten such dry skin that's even more dry than my own wallet today and for someone at my age, that's pretty sad when you think about it.

It's even sadder when I can prove it to you.

Unfortunately, it's an unavoidable issue for me to get dry skin because I work from 9 AM to 5 PM on weekdays in an air-conditioned office and I also sleep in an air-conditioned room because I can't stand being in the heat. I suppose having an inconsistent body clock also sends my skin straight to the land of nightmares so you should be able to know by now how bad it is if you were to touch my skin. As much as I try to be in touch with the extra feminine side in me what with the points where I would apply toner, moisturizer and other facial care items, I can't seem to find the drive to deal with other parts of my body like my hands and legs...as you can see above.

In fact, I've tried to drill it into me to apply lotion before putting on my clothes but I've found it to be a hassle when I have to wait till it dries off after application and there's also that fairly sticky feeling that lingers for the next 5 to 10 minutes. I know it means the lotion is working it's magic in giving my skin good moisture but I cannot stand it. So I thought of how I've been destined to look like a shedding snake for the rest of my life because I am that lazy until...

Someone came up with a genius idea.

Do you really do what you say you do?

This is called the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner and as you could probably figure out by now, it's a conditioner for your skin while you're still under the running water. You just have to use it after your regular wash with whatever soap you're using and it promises to moisturize your skin immediately. Think of it as a conditioner like you'd use on your hair after shampooing except this time, it's for your body. Whoever thought of this new range must be just as lazy or forgetful as I am otherwise, they wouldn't have thought of such a shortcut now, would they?

Throwing in some comparisons when put on my fat hands.

What I was expecting from the bottle was something almost of the same texture as the NIVEA Intensive Body Milk lotion (That I used to use until laziness got the better of me) because they are after all from the same company but somehow the brand new NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner actually has a little more watery touch to it. It also just glides on transparent and funny enough, it rinses off quicker than my hair conditioner does. Someone has done a really good job in creating this product!

The aftermath.

The thing is, I was skeptical that it would help in the beginning because as we all know, being in the shower strips you away from the natural moisture your body produces but I've clearly been proved wrong. It has now been about a week since I've been pampering myself with the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner and I'll just say that it has done quite a good job considering how bad my dry skin was previously. While it isn't a 100% better, at the very least I am no longer a shedding snake and that's good enough for me. The after feeling is like a thin sheen of dewy-ness (Not stickiness!) which in my context of understanding, should be the moisture my skin really needs.

What I really like about it is how it smothers on easily then flows away just as quickly and then I'm ready to do whatever else after I've patted myself dry. The best part of it all is that I don't have to throw in an extra wait time of 10 minutes for any lotions to dry which means it's also good for me to use in the morning when I am in a fight with time to get to work. Oh and it smells really fantastic, I'm extremely addicted to sniffing myself right now. Creepy but true. I believe it is the scent almond oil because that's one of the key ingredients to the dry skin variant I've picked up.

Staple addition to my toiletries stool. Say hello to my makeshift "studio", the bathroom.

I've now left the botle of NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner in my bathroom as a staple addition to all my other stuff because it is where it belongs; in the shower, making me look good. Oh and if you're wondering why my shampoo bottle is upside down, just remember that I am Chinese and I am frugal. We don't waste even one drop of shampoo...even when it clearly is finishing. Don't judge me. So by now if you're wondering whether or not you should be getting a bottle of this NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner, I will knock your head. How can you not go get one? It is retailing for only RM 16.90 if I'm not mistaken and they came in 2 variants for normal skin conditions and dry skin conditions.

If you're really that stubborn and you're still not sold on this awesome invention, maybe this video could help you. Don't be fazed with the time bar, it's actually an interactive video and you get to call some shots on what happens in the video. Oh and they also have hot guys in it so you know...that should be motivation enough to watch it.

As if you don't already see that muscular man in the thumbnail, eh?
