Nivea Nourishing Body Milk Review (For Very Dry Skin)


As winter is approaching, or maybe have approached in some parts of the world, I thought it would be appropriate to review a few body lotions on the blog. Recently, I wrote a blog post on how to treat dry skin to help the readers. I have a lot more body lotion and moisturizer reviews coming soon. I have been trying a lot of moisturizers lately.

If you want, you may read my previous blog post on how to cure dry skin & best moisturizers for dry skin. My skin is always very dry, be it summers or winters. But in winters, it takes a massive turn and becomes so much more dry. 😅

So,  I have to use many lotions and moisturizers to keep my skin hydrated even though I am lazy to apply body lotions every day. It takes a lot of time, anyone with me, here?! 😂
I have been using this body lotion for a month or two now because I thought it would be good to prepare my skin for the rough winter time coming. Pre-prepping your skin is actually a thing, if you keep it hydrated, it wouldn't crack during the winter time. I'm experiencing it.

What the product claims?

Pamper your skin with moisture. The body milk is specially designed for the needs of dry skin. Enriched with valuable almond oil, natural minerals, and Hydra IQ formula reduces a rough and dry body sensation. For long-lasting supple skin: Nivea Nourishing Body Milk.

Nivea provides different body care products that provide a perfect care. The Nivea Nourishing Body Milk is particularly suitable for dry skin. It reduces rough and dry skin feeling and ensures beautiful skin that looks beautiful and feels smooth.

This rich and creamy formula with Hydra IQ and Natural Minerals effectively moisturizes to perceptibly reduce the roughness of your dry skin.

The nivea nourishing body milk comes in a large blue coloured plastic bottle with a pump on the top. I really like lotions that have a pump on the bottle because that makes it so much easier to use. It is definitely not travel-friendly since it is huge and second it has a pump. But, I guess it comes without a pump too so that would be good for travel if you really like to carry this lotion. Overall, the packaging is nothing special, it's just how a typical body lotion bottle should be- nice and sturdy.

Texture of the body milk:

It is milky, creamy and white in colour. It has runny consistency which makes the application a lot easier.



What I like about the nivea nourishing body milk:

  • It is not very thick, hence it is easy to apply.
  • Gets absorbed by the skin very quickly.
  • Not very overwhelming fragrance. Has a typical nivea cream fragrance.
  • The fragrance stays for an hour after application.
  • Makes skin soft and supple instantly.
  • Repairs dry skin immediately but that repair effect doesn't last very long, although regular use might help to repair dry skin to some extent.
  • Prevents skin from cracking in cold weather. 
  • Doesn't make the skin oily at all.
  • Fragrance lingers on the skin for about an hour.
  • Affordable for a lotion which actually works.
  • Travel-friendly only if you buy the bottle without the pump, which is available in the market.

What I don't like about the nivea nourishing body milk:

  • Doesn't hydrate the skin for a long time, you have to re-apply it many times throughout a day.
  • Have to use huge amounts of it at a time.
  • It claims to give 24-hour long nourishment and hydration but honestly, the hydration lasts for 5 to 6 hours only which is not bad but not what they claim. False advertisement right there.
  • Has too many chemicals in it.  


4.5/ 5
