Nivea Nourishing Body Milk for Very Dry Skin Review

(Author ~ Sanchita) 

Hello everyone.

Nivea is my go-to brand for body lotion and lip butter. I definitely try other brands but I always find my way back to here as their products are so suitable for me as well as the budget friendly price tag. My body skin is generally normal but since I prefer to shave my hands and legs rather than going for waxing, the skin tends to be dry. And therefore, I make sure to apply a nourishing body lotion religiously. I have been using this lotion for the past 3 years and surely say that it is my favorite.

Here’s the detailed review on the mentioned product.


PRICE – 299 INR for 400ml


The Nivea Nourishing Body Milk for Very Dry Skin comes in various sizes and I picked up the biggest bottle as I prefer to use it for a long time without running out on it. The bottle is dark blue colored bottle with a pump dispenser that dispenses right amount. However, if you accidentally took out more than what is required, then there is no going back. Also, the pump dispenser can be twisted to lock in the bottle and hence it is pretty handy to use. The bottle is too big to travel with so if you want something more convenient, I suggest buy the smaller version.

The Nivea Nourishing Body Milk is milky white in color and has a rather thicker consistency. In fact, the texture is somewhat between lotion and thick cold cream and spreads so easily and comfortably on the skin. The smell is sweet and artificial. If you have been using Nivea body creams and lotions would know more that they have a quintessential smell which is very good and invigorates the body. Despite having a thicker consistency, the product gets absorbed into the skin in no time. All you have to do is massage for a minute or so and it gets totally soaked up. This is why it is easier to apply on the skin. It also feels light and comfortable and wont clog the pores or makes the skin difficult to breathe. I have applied this all round the year and it has never made my skin irritate.

Comin to the moisturizing part, it hydrates and nourishes the skin really well. As I have mentioned earlier, the skin of my hands and legs are super dry and parched and it has moisturized them very well. For summers and monsoons, I apply this lotion twice a day while for winters, I have to apply thrice a day to hydrate it. Upon applying, it forms a sheen layer on the skin (but not oily and greasy) and then merges easily. It makes the skin soft and supple to touch and really meant for dry skin. If you have normal to oily skin, apply this only in winter as for hot weather, it will make you sweat and feel greasy.

The product has been formulated with various ingredients like Almond Oil and Vitamin E which hydrates the skin and penetrates into the deepest layer. It reduces the roughness to a large extent and the skin feels soft like a baby. The only drawback I feel is the inclusion of parabens. The product is also dermatologically tested and can be applied on sensitive skin as well. I apply it post-shaving and it has never caused any irritation or tingling sensation at all. Since the product works so well for me I find it very difficult to stop using it and hence I would really appreciate if Nivea comes out with something without parabens. The price is good and reasonable provided the quality it delivers.

OVERALL – The Nivea Nourishing Body Milk has a great lotion for dry skin with skin-soothing ingredients and emollient oils that hydrates the skin and makes it supple. Except for the paraben part, the product is a must-have.

  • White color and pleasant smell.

  • Spreads well on the skin and absorbed easily while massaging.
