Those of you who have read my previous posts on different body lotions know that I have alligator skin! No wonder, I spend more time applying body lotion than the total amount of time I spend soaping my body and rinsing it off!
Sounds strange but it’s true, Nivea smooth milk body lotion for dry skin has been on the store shelves for quite a long time but I only recently gave it a try. Infused with the goodness of Shea Butter, the body lotion claims to provide deep moisture and long lasting smoothness for dry skin.

My Experience with Nivea Smooth Milk Body Lotion with Shea Butter
Nivea smooth milk body lotion for dry skin comes in a no-fuss light blue plastic bottle with a flip open cap. Mild floral notes dominate this moisturizer’s typical Nivea scent. A touch greasier than Vaseline cocoa butter, Nivea body lotion is full of moisturizing ingredients like Shea Butter, Gingko biloba and vitamin E.
I also like the fact this body lotion is free from any colorants or animal testing. This shea butter lotion has been my HG moisturizer throughout winters, and my skin and I had been happy with it. But come summers and this ultra-moisturizing lotion started behaving to be heavy on the skin, leaving behind a greasy and sticky residue.
So even though it gives you long lasting smoothness and keeps your limbs soft and supple for good 24 hours, it isn’t for hot weather or oily skin. Oily skin beauties, you better steer clear of it. Best part is it has given my chronically dry skin a break! Temporary or permanent but my skin certainly has an improved texture and tone after using this lotion.

R2B Rating: 4/5Overall Take:
On the whole, Nivea smooth milk body lotion with shea butter is an excellent body lotion for dry skin. It comes out true on most of its claims. Enriched with deeply moisturizing ingredients the body lotion does provide long lasting smoothness. However, the lotion is not for warm weather and oily skinned beauties.
