Review: Nivea Aloe & Hydration Body Lotion

When I think of Nivea, I think of body products. I still remember their universal cream in a dark blue tin packaging that was a staple in many families, when I was little. I never really like their face creams, because they're too perfumed and basic, but their body lotions and shower gels always work for my skin. I especially like nourishing abilities. I've already talked about their Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Milk which is one of my favorites from their brand and great for creating super glowy skin all over the body. Today I'm writing about their Nivea Aloe & Hydration Body Lotion


It comes in a white plastic packaging with minimal design. I like that they have a slanted top which means you can actually place it on its head and it stands. This makes it easier to get out every last drop of the lotion. 

In it is 250 ml of product and it costs something around 4€.  


Nivea says that their body lotion contains intensive Nivea hydrating serum, nourishing oils, aloe vera  extract and helps to keep your skin hydrated with the help of lipids. It should protect the skin from water loss and make it feel more hydrated.

Aloe vera is a fairly commonly used ingredient in skin care. It's great gentle ingredient that helps to hydrate and calm the skin. Nivea also says that aloe vera is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes

It has firm, but slightly transparent white lotion cosistency that is very smooth and spreads with utter ease. It's super lightweight in its way, but once you massage it in, you can still feel slight nourishing layer on the skin, although it's completely matte looking

It has a subtle herbal, but also a bit sweet scent. Pleasant, but not overwhelming. 


I have much drier skin on my body in the winter than in the warmer months, which I'm sure is the usual with most of you too. My problem area is my lower half of legs, which sometimes get so dry that they look white and small patches of skin start to flake off. Ever since I was using this lotion religiously every morning or night, I don't have that problem. I can apply it on in the evening and in the morning my skin still looks hydrated. It's not ultra nourishing, like their rich version, but it's much more lightweight and feels like nothing on the skin. It also never felt irritating on my sensitive skin.

This would be perfect for summer time or for transitioning into winter, if you're like me and love a good heavy balmy nourishing lotion for the winter. However, if you hate anything too rich and noticeable on the skin, you would love this regardless of the season. I even caught my boyfriend using this on his dry legs and I'm assuming he likes it that much because of the no-grease residue

When it comes to body products I go for something that is nourishing, hydrating and doesn't irritate my skin. This Nivea Aloe & Hydration Body Lotion is lightweight, but has nourishing and hydrating abilities without leaving your skin looking or feeling greasy. It doesn't irritate my skin at all and the fragrance in it is subtle enough that it doesn't bother me through the day. If you want something lightweight, but that does the job, you would probably like it.

    1. I love their body products too and it seems like they're not that often mentioned on blobs. :)

  2. I really love their skin care products. They have a good range of body wash and scrub soaps.
