Winter is undoubtedly the loveliest of all seasons when considered from all aspects. But when it comes to taking care of our skin, winter can turn out to be the trickiest. It is especially true for dry or very dry skin that often gets flaky, scaly, or even cracked due to the chilly wind of winter. So, this review is for all those beauties who have been failing to combat winter dryness with their go-to body lotions or moisturizers. Today, I will review Nivea Nourishing Body Milk (Very Dry Skin), which works almost like a ‘magic wand’ for extremely dry skin. Read on to know more.
About The Brand Nivea
Nivea is a well-known brand, which needs no introduction. However, here is a brief of the brand that will help you know it even better:
Nivea is a 100+ years old German personal care brand that marked the beginning of its unique success story with the production of the “mother of all creams” – the ‘NIVEA Creme’. It was the world’s first stable oil-and-water-based cream containing an innovative emulsifying agent called Eucerit. The NIVEA family continued to grow and added many new products in the customary high quality, such as shaving cream, shampoo, skin oil, sun protection, and sun care products, etc. to its range. Each product by the brand is a combination of brilliant research, outstanding creativity, and sound business acumen. The unique quality, unrivaled effectiveness, and honesty made Nivea a global top-selling brand.

The best thing about Nivea Nourishing Body Milk is that it does not contain parabens like most other body care products available in the market. Instead, it comes enriched with the goodness of almond oil for making the very dry skin soft and supple. Here is the complete list of ingredients used in the product:
Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, C15-19 Alkane, Alcohol Denat. (3.66% v/v), Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Glyceryl Glucoside, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Maris Sal, Linalool, Citronellol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Perfume.
Nivea Nourishing Body Milk (Very Dry Skin) comes in a typical blue-colored plastic bottle with a flip-open cap at the top. The bottle is very sturdy, and the cap closes with a click, making it a tight and travel-friendly packaging. Though there is nothing fussy about the bottle, it still looks simply elegant. Unfortunately, the product seems to accumulate at the mouth of the dispenser during use, which I do not like at all.
Look And Feel
Being a ‘body milk’, the product’s color is milky white. It has a rich and creamy texture with good consistency. As it is neither too thick nor too flowy, you can spread it quickly on your skin. The body milk has a mild aroma with beautiful citrusy undernotes, primarily similar to other Nivea products. You may find it disturbing if you have a sensitive nose.
The Nivea Nourishing Body Milk (Very Dry Skin) was launched a while ago, and I have been using it since then. It gets absorbed pretty quickly into the skin, and I do not need to massage it vigorously. My skin also does not look oily after the application, which is a plus as many hydrating body lotions work to reduce dryness by making the skin look oily.
This product helps me a lot in retaining my skin’s moisture and never makes it dry or flaky. My skin looks more healthy and more nourished than earlier. I can feel the change in the texture of my skin. It is very soft and smooth to touch now, and I genuinely love the feeling.
The lotion claims to stay for 48 hours, which is true! I usually apply it every night, but there was a day or two when I skipped it to see if the product stands to true to its claim in terms of hydrating power. My skin still felt enough hydrated and soft, which was surprising. However, this body milk will not help protect your skin from the sun since it does not contain SPF.

Dispense the body lotion into the palm of your hand. Gently massage the lotion onto your skin. Apply evenly all over the body. Use daily to give your skin the perfect results.
