I’m always sceptical about oils. I’ve never liked using them on my body and no matter how little oil I would use in the past, it always made me feel way too greasy, gross and in need of another shower so imagine my happy surprise when this turned out to be different. This is a “dry” oil and I suppose it’s because Avocado Oil is quite light in texture, so this is great news if you’re like me and seriously dislike using any oil on your body because oils generally being quite “heavy” to use.

Reading the box and seeing “Use at least twice a day” I thought to myself “What?” Let’s be real, I’m sure there are very few of us out there who have the ability to use body oil thrice a day. I’m not really sure who’s going to be at the office only to skip out of a meeting to go and strip off in the bathroom to apply body oil. This seems a tad unrealistic. Never the less, by twice daily usage (and at times, even less) I saw some good results. My skin has been firmer, healthier looking and has a beautiful glow. It even feels softer to the touch and since winter has come to the Cape in a mad way, this body oil has been a welcome addition to my night-time routine (and when I can manage it first thing in the morning). If I combine it with proper diet and exercise, the results would be even better.

I'm pretty impressed and happy with the results and it's definitely a product I would recommend especially to those who are starting to feel the effects of gravity ;)

Nivea Firming Body Oil

During these winter months, my skin needs a little extra attention and I love this alternative to a moisturiser- a body oil is a great option to deliver instant and intense moisture to the skin!
I apply it on both wet and dry skin, and the moisture absorbs equally in both cases. There is no oily residue after application - in contrast to body lotions I've tried that leave skin feeling sticky.

I enjoy the subtle scent- fresh and light- but not overpowering and fades within minutes of application. My skin not only feels soft, it appears to increase skins luminosity - adding moisture to my dry winter skin and bringing it back to life! Definitely a new staple in my winter beauty repertoire!

Nivea firming body oil my winter save

I love the gentle smell of Nivea: soft; clean fresh! These days it would seem I've substituted my usual moisturiser in favour of post shower oil! And it's a dry oil meaning it dries to a clean finish enabling you to get dressed immediately in the morning! Add on the benefits of Q10 plus and you have firming; improved elasticity and nourishing with avocado oil ! Suitable for stretch marks! I've used almost my entire third bottle and have firmer nourished skin! Can't comment on marks though! I've seen no improvements there! But this is rapidly becoming my winter save! Love it!

Nivea firming Body Oil

A great, non-greasy, nourishing oil that is very effective for stretch marks. It has nice subtle scent and this lingers all day. The price is not steep and it absorbs easily into the skin without leaving any residue behind. Keeps moisture locked in all day if used straight after showering.

Nivea Firming Body Oil

I find this body oil much more moisturising to my skin now that winter is approaching, I found the oil to have a nice gentle scent which I loved having on my skin, I haven't seen much of a difference in my skin's tone however I can feel a difference in my skin by it being much more moisturised and hydrated, while it feels much more firmer. I would recommend this body oil because if you use it for a longer period of time you will see a visible difference, and this body oil isn't very heavy on skin either, it feels light and doesn't make skin feel very oily or thick but rather well hydrated and perfect.

Nivea Firming Body Oil

This is a really great product and is a good buy for anyone experiencing a loss of skin elasticity, dull looking or uneven skin or needing to soften stretch marks. Plus, if you're not a fan of products such as Bio Oil because of the texture, this is the solution!
