Today’s review is about a skin care product from one of world’s largest skin care brand – NIVEA. Nivea is one of the internationally leading companies with more than 130 years experience in skin care. I was using Vaseline aloe fresh and was quite happy with the product. And now since summers are gone, its time for me to switch to a better moisturize.
When I was looking for a moisturizer in health and glow store, I came across this Nivea Nourishing Body milk. It’s been years I have used Nivea. Still with complete trust I went ahead and brought this one. Let’s see how it fared on my dry skin.
Rs.198 for 250 ml

My Take on Nivea Nourishing Body Milk:
I brought this product last month and have been using it everyday. The product comes in the usual Nivea blue colored plastic container with a sturdy cap.
The colour of this nourishing milk is white with a creamy texture. The smell is very close to age-old Nivea small blue tin dabba. I quite like the smell as it’s so refreshing .As soon as the body milk is applied, it gives a cooling sensation. The light texture of this body milk makes the skin to absorb quickly. I am happy with the moisturising past as well .My skin does not feel dry or stretchy.
The product lives to its claim except the 24+ moisture part. The body milk worked very well on my dry skin and lasts up to 10 hours (I think its fair good for any moisturizer). After that you might need to re-apply. So far I am satisfied with the product. On the whole this is one typical Nivea product you can trust.
PROS of Nivea Nourishing Body Milk:
- Good moisturising effect.
- Cooling sensation when applied.
- Skin absorbs easily.
- Doesn’t leave oily tint on skin.
- Very refreshing fragrance.
- 29 months shelf life is pretty good.
- Strong bottle with sturdy cap makes it travel friendly.
CONS of Nivea Nourishing Body Milk:
- Tongue twisting chemical names on ingredients.
- Fragrance doesn’t stay long.
- False claim on 24+ moisture.
MABH Rating: 4.2/5
