24/7 silky soft skin with NIVEA!

Does your skin feel tight and itchy sometimes? This is a sign that the skin is dehydrated and you will have to moisturize your skin. However for me, I dislike putting on body lotion as it takes super long to absorb and it has a tendency to leave my skin feeling sticky. Therefore, I skip body lotion almost everyday except when my skin feels scaly where I have no choice but to apply it. I have a love-hate relationship with body lotions.

According to research, 70% of Malaysian women do not apply body lotion everyday! As a global skin care brand that thrives for driving innovation, NIVEA now has made body care easier for everyone!

NIVEA has discovered a unique water-activated formula that works on wet skin. When the skin's wet, it would be the best time to moisturize because the nourishment absorbs easily through open pores to fully moisturize and repair dry skin. This product is called NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner, the 1st rinse-off body lotion that helps women keep their skin moisturize!

Thanks to NIVEA, I received a whole bunch of goodies for myself, as well as to give it to my friends to try out the products!
