• Nivea Pure & Natural Body Lotion (normal to dry skin)

Hi lovelies!
A few days ago, sweet Iliada from beautylicious offered to send me a Nivea body lotion from the new Pure & Natural line and of course I was super excited! Thanks a lot Iliada!!
I don't know if you have heard but Nivea is currently celebrating 100 years!! Yep, a whole century has passed since the first Nivea cream was made. The company, the formulas and the products have changed a lot since then. Even the tin of the classic Nivea cream has changed though the century.

For more information you can browse  through the company's history: Nivea's history. I love all the retro advertisements, check them out!!
Ok, back to present. So, this new line is supposed to be 95% natural ingredients, no parabens, silicons, artificial colour and mineral oils! Sounds amazing, right? Let's see...


It comes in a white opaque plastic bottle that holds 250ml of product. I like the shape of the bottle, it's pretty and easier to hold than the regular shaped ones.


Click the picture to see it larger. You can easily see the ingredients in the back of the bottle. I can't understand every single word but I see that there's no parabens or mineral oils. Good job Nivea! :D

The actual product

It's a white lotion. No shimmers in it.

In the top part of the bottle, there is a sticker that claims "Light feeling". I was really happy to discover that it's actually the truth! The lotion is lightweight and easily absorbed. But it does moisturize, you can feel it. You don't need a lot of product, a little goes a long way. Keep in mind that there's also a "very dry skin" option of this body lotion, I guess this one is a little heavier but I haven't tried it so I can't tell for sure.

It has a light smell which I can't describe and I'm so frustrated because I usually can describe scents! It's not floral or sweet or fruity, it's not soapy or anything. It may be the argan oil smell, I don't know. Anyway, it's there but it's light and is gone in an hour or so, so don't worry too much about it. Btw, I do like it.

Last but not least
As stated here Nivea is against animal testing but the company is not in the PETA list.

Summary: 5/5
It's a really nice try from a big company to go more natural. The body lotion itself is great, I want to try more products from this line! I know that many of you are searching for parabens-free products so I'm sure you'll like it!

Where can you find it-Cost

- It costs about 6.50€ in my nearest beauty store (Hondos Center).

Iliada sent me 2 more goodies, the Max Factor smoky eye effect eyeshadow in a purple/olive combination and the L'oreal 6h glam shine lipgloss in a lovely coral with fuchsia shimmers colour.

I've wanted to try the Max Factor eyeshadow since I've read many review about it. I swatched it and both ends looks very pretty, blendable but not too creamy so I hope they won't crease. The lipgloss is very very pretty, my sister is drooling over it since I received it! :D
Thank you so much Iliada!! Please, check out her blog, it's lovely and she always hosts great giveaways!!

So, tell me, have you tried this lotion? Are you generally a fan of Nivea body products? I like Nivea deodorants, I've been using them for many years. Are you searching for more natural, paraben-free products?

Disclaimer: The product was provided by Iliada from http://www.beautylicious.gr. Nobody pays me to use and review the product. This is my honest opinion.


  1. Sounds great! It's so encouraging that a mass-commercial brand like Nivea goes the "natural" way, if Nivea can do it, any brand can! I'd like to see more products on this Pure&Natural range. Lovely post! xx

  2. Χρησιμοποιώ NIVEA και η αγαπημένη μου είναι η Firming Lotion Q10plus από την οποία είμαι και πάρα πολύ ευχαριστημένη!!!!
    Θα δοκιμάσω όμως και τη Nivea Pure & Natural Body Lotion. Great review!!!

  3. Πολύ αναλυτική όπως πάντα!! Η NIVEA διαχρονική και την ξέρει και η γιαγιά μου!! Την έχω δοκιμάσει και εγώ την συγκεκριμένη και μου αρέσει πολύ αυτή η σειρά!!
    Καλή εβδομάδα και Καλή συνέχεια! Φιλιά!

  4. @cbsg5861: I totally agree! Thanks sweety! Kisses!

    @elena: Δεν την έχω δοκιμάσει την Q10plus αλλά είδα που έγραφες καλά λόγια σε ένα ποστ και είμαι περίεργη να τη δοκιμάσω!

    @Μοντέρνα Σταχτοπούτα: Ναι και χαίρομαι που έφτιαξαν μια τέτοια σειρά γιατί όλο και περισσότερες κοπέλες ψάχνουν οικονομικά και paraben-free προϊόντα! Πολλά φιλιά και καλή εβδομάδα!

  5. I love anything thats pure, natural , organic etc but as cbsg said hopefully more brands will turn more natural which i do think they already are. I have a couple of samples of this product but i havent had a chance yet to try them out , i like to keep samples for travelling. Im not really attracted to Nivea believe it or not , i like something different...
    kisses xo

  6. @glittermeup: I keep samples for traveling too! I think I know what you mean, the problem is smaller companies can't offer the low prices the big ones can.. Thanks for stopping by doll! xx

  7. Εγω εχω την άλλη την μπλε με το αμυγδαλέλαιο και δεν την αλλάζω με τίποτα!!!! Ειμαι φαν της Nivea εδώ και χρόνια. Η Q10 plus ειναι φοβερή. Ειδικά αυτή που ειναι για τα χέρια είναι από τις καλύτερες της αγο΄ρας!!! Έχω πάντα μία στο συρτάρι μου τώρα το χειμώνα!!

  8. @Κερασία: χμ, νομίζω ότι έχω μείνει πίσω στις κρέμες Nivea, θα επανορθώσω άμεσα! :D

  9. great review I'm testing the face lotion and I start loving it...I haven't tried the body lotion but will be on my list!!

  10. Nivea lotion looks great, unfortunately I my skin has some king of allergic reaction to Nivea products and I can't use them but hope you enjoy them!!

  11. @Demi: really? I want it too!!

    @fairy_ana: Well, I was lucky enough not having an allergic reaction to any cream yet but if you do you'd better stick with the brands your skin likes. Thanks for stopping by hun!
