Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion (Normal To Dry Skin)

This product has been around for a couple month's and I've been using it for a while.
I first saw the tv ad for the product and thought wow that sound's pretty good (I'm really lazy when it comes to applying a Moisturiser to anywhere but my face, hands and elbow's) on a daily basis, so I liked the idea of this product and that you apply it whilst in the shower.

Directions

Apply normal shower gel or soap over your body and rinse off
Step away from the water and apply the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion to damp skin
(arm's and leg's etc) and once it's been smoothed onto your skin you rinse off

Since using this I see no need for an after shower body lotion, body butter but having said that I do have product's I'm trying to use up so I might apply a thin layer to my arm's and leg's sporadically but not daily because I'm lazy when it comes to moisturiser's.
I bought this bottle in The Warehouse because it's the first place I actually saw it on the shelves and it was $9.99 which I thought was a little bit expensive at the time but I've since realised after using it for a while it's going to last a few month's (I'd say 3 month's or more per bottle) so it's well worth it.

I hope when I go to restock that it's not hard to find. About 2 week's later I saw a Nivea display in my local New World and it was on offer for $7.99 but in a dark blue bottle, which is the Combination/Oily skin version so I bought that one as well but I'm still currently using this one.

I haven't actually come across anything negative to say about this product, it feel's soft, it has a bit of a lather so you can see where your rubbing it into your skin and I feel it last's a pretty good amount of the day leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised. Sometimes a smell of a product can be less noticeable over time or really pong when applying but this is a pleasant clean smelling product, it's not unpleasant at all. The product is a white lotion, not too thin and not too thick. You don't need a lot of lotion, I find about a 50 cent piece is enough for both of my leg's (thigh's, knee's, calves and feet).

If you were thinking of trying this product, please give it a try. 

Giveaway:

I received two sample's by giving the Nivea NZ's Facebook page my detail's but these sample's were received after I bought the bottle so I'm going to choose two random reader's who comment below saying they'd like to receive a sample (I only have the two sachet's below). If you're selected, I'll contact you to say you won and ask you for your postal address (postage will be paid by me) but theres just one rule: 1) in order to qualify you must live in Australia or New Zealand please.
Another thing I really like about Nivea is they're a Cruelty Free brand so that mean's none of the ingredient's have been Tested on Animal's and that's important to me because I don't want to spend my money on product's from brand's and companies that are still testing so I do a lot of my own research before buying new brand's because the wording on some product packaging is tricky.

If you'd like to know more about going Cruelty Free I recommend these sites because they have a lot of information which has helped me make decision's by knowing who the parent companies are behind famous brand's. In shop's look for the Leaping Bunny logo on packaging (more on that here) and a blog I refer to regularly is Humanely Chic here.
