Body Type: Normal to dry
Winter will come soon and as I have dry body type, I am preparing to fight against dryness. Nivea has recently launched a new body cream and today, I am talking about the Aloe Body Cream Refreshing Moisturiser. Let’s get into the review.
With the benefits of organic Aloe Vera, Jojoba oil and Vitamin E, this moisturiser naturally and gently provides skin (even sensitive skin) with absolute hydration and nourishment, leaving it feeling silky and smooth. The Nivea Aloe Body Cream moisturises the skin without leaving behind a greasy residue, meaning it’s suitable for all skin types, including oily and impure skin. It also helps to support the skin’s defence system against premature ageing caused by free radicals. Freshness in a jar, this refreshing moisturiser keeps your skin soft, supple and smooth
- Fast-absorbing formula with no sticky feeling
- Soothes, heals and restores moisture to dull, dehydrated skin
- Leaves skin smooth and fresh all day long
- Vitamin E & aloe vera formulation
- Suitable for all skin types
INR 90 for 50ml
My Experience with Nivea Aloe Body Cream Refreshing Moisturiser:
Nivea aloe body cream is available in two sizes and it comes in a round white plastic jar with a cap. I am not fan of jar packaging as this is not so hygienic. But, as it is a small 50ml jar, it is quite easy to carry around, like I always carry it in my handbag which is much essential during winter.
Body cream comes in a soft medium creamy texture that glides smoothly on skin and with a little massage, it nicely gets absorbed into the skin that leaves a soft silky finish. It feels light and non-greasy as well. It instantly provides a great relief to dry skin and it also has a fresh soothing effect. It also has a nice fresh fragrance of Aloe Vera and I love this pleasant smell but, it doesn’t stay long that much.
As a body cream, it does provide that desire hydration to skin. It makes it soft, smooth and healthy. Now, I have quite dry body and I always need rich hydration. As it is a light body cream, I require extra amount of cream to cover my body deeply. Initially, it provides a soothing relief to rough texture and cures the dryness as well. It also repairs the texture and adds a nice silky glow to it.
Now, the softness stays for a good time on skin. I mean, the hydration stays for around 5-6 hours and then, I need a reapplication. But the time period is quite good for my dry body. I think extremely dry rough skin will need more hydration than this.
It is definitely a good body cream and if you have normal skin then, it is a nice lightweight hydrating body cream for you. Even it works well during this pre-winter season. Earlier, I had used their Cocoa Nourish Body Cream which will last throughout the day and worked great on me.
Overall, it behaves like good hydrating body cream that feels light and non-greasy. But, I wish it stays little more on skin that is much required during winter. Also, it should have minimum SPF as well.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Nivea Aloe Body Cream Refreshing Moisturiser?
