Nivea Oil-in-Lotion Cherry Blossom & Jojoba Oil | Review

Do you have a favourite scent to wear during daytime? Personally, I have one especially for working days as meeting other people is a huge part of my job although I would rather stick to soft and subtle scents on a daily basis. 

Similar to skincare, I tend to layer my body fragrances; from shower creams to lotions and lastly my favourite perfumes so all of these three types of product needs to blend well together. While it is easy to just get all these products from the same fragrance line of certain brand, I would prefer to mix things up from different brands but focusing on the same top notes so when it comes to Cherry Blossom scent, this Oil in Lotion Cherry Blossom and Jojoba Oil from Nivea goes so well with my current Eau de Toilette for work.

What’s good?

  • This fast-absorbing body lotion provides more than 24 hours of deep moisturization thanks to the Jojoba Oil that’s blended in the formula.
  • It has a subtle cherry blossom scent to it.

How to Use:

Apply this body lotion daily to your whole body.

Capacity: 400ml – about 80 applications. I only use this in the morning so that’s about 3 to 4 months of daily use for me.

Water, Glycerin, Dicaprylyl Ether, Alcohol Denat, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Carbomer, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Sodium Hydroxide, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum


PACKAGING

Basically, the product comes in a sturdy light blue plastic bottle that I need to put in front of a source of light to see the amount of product left in the bottle. There are product description and ingredients list printed at the back of the bottle in English for your convenience.

This body lotion is good for 12 months after opened and there is the product manufacturing date printed in the format of MFG : MM/YYYY (Month/Year) at the bottom of the bottle. General shelf life would be 3 years so while I started to use this product sometime within the last year, it’s a good thing that I’m about to finish it.

The body lotion comes with a nice pump as it dispenses out appropriate amount of product every time and I can simply push it down and twist to securely lock in order to prevent spillage while travel although I would usually just decant my body lotion in a smaller container. For domestic travel however, I would be carrying the whole bottle for my family members and I as we travel together for most of the time.

I do noticed however that the pump doesn’t really work well towards the end as the blue cap tends to jumped out of the neck after dispensing the lotion.


APPLICATION

The body lotion is in that lovely white colour as with most body lotions do. I usually need 3 to 4 pumps of the product  per application.

I can tell that the lotion definitely leaves a velvety film on skin thanks to the silicone in it. With my skin being a little bit dehydrated with some flaky area along my calves, the lightweight yet hydrating texture is perfect for my air-conditioned workspace throughout the day.


THOUGHTS

Overall, I give this body lotion 5/5. I personally love Cherry Blossom scent and it is such a lovely combination with the Jojoba Oil in the lotion. Knowing that my body mists can dry out my skin due to high content of alcohol in them; I do have a habit of spraying them directly on my arms and legs to refresh myself before heading out from work so it’s nice to know that this body lotion can be some sort of a buffer to the drying effect.

Looking at the ingredients list, there are 3 ingredients (bold above in the list) that are not suitable for those with fungal acne so definitely avoid using this product if you’re one. I have been using this body lotion for months now and I’m about to empty the bottle already but I’m glad to report that I haven’t experience any irritation so far which is good.

I have noticed that compared to the previous version of this product, it seems that the brand omitted six ingredients that are known as allergens; Linalool, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Geraniol, and Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone as the newer version ingredients list no longer has them so if you are easily reacted to regular body lotions out in the market, definitely give this product a try although Your Miles May Vary.
