As such, water flows better and faster from cell to cell, and even reaches the deeper layers of the skin which helps to restore skin’s own moisture supply and regulates the balance of moisture within it.

- The extra light and non-sticky serum formula absorbs fast into your skin

Your skin becomes noticeably softer, smoother and more supple.
Skin compatibility and dermatologically approved.
*Compare to other NIVEA body lotion, Vitamin E derivative, supported by BDF analytical test.

Net Weight: 200ml

Price: $8.90

Packaging:
The cap of NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum is well-wrapped with a plastic wrapper. The wrapper can be easily torn off at the tear line.

It comes in a cobalt blue, fuss-free squeezable tube with a white flip-on/snap-on cap.

This is how the opening of the tube looks like.
The serum can be easily squeezed out from the tube.

Scent:
I don't know how to describe the scent but it doesn't smell bad. It has a typical NIVEA products' fragrance, which I quite like~ :)

Consistency & Color:
Lightweight white liquid-y, serum-like texture. It may feel sticky at first but once it gets absorbed, it doesn't feel sticky at all; it does not leave a sticky or greasy residue once it gets absorbed.

Demonstration on my mom's arm:
(BEFORE)
Squeeze and apply an adequate amount of the body serum onto desired area.
...massage...
continue to massage until it gets absorbed... and wait for a minute...
(AFTER)
After absorption, the skin immediately felt softer, smoother and more supple to the touch!
Well, I don't know if you readers can spot the difference BEFORE and AFTER application... If you take a good look and compare the BEFORE and AFTER, you would notice that right AFTER application, the arm gave a dewy hydrated glow and it just looked brighter and healthier. The differences were really visible!

Dislikes:

Verdict: I have to say that I love this gentle body serum moisturizer! Currently, it's one of my holy grail daily products. WHY? Firstly, it's a dual function body moisturizer — a moisture serum and a sunscreen (SPF25 PA++) — hence, nowadays I only have to apply one product instead of two, which saves the hassle and time. Secondly, as it contains SPF 25 PA ++, it helps to shield my skin from the sun damages. At the same time, it helps to repair and provide moisture to my dry skin, instantly makes my skin look brighter, healthier, more hydrated and feel softer and smoother to the touch! I can feel the differences right after application! How awesome is that!? Thirdly, it's not thick and heavy thus, it gets absorbed into the skin quickly without leaving a tacky or greasy feel. Perfect to use in hot and humid weather. So, these are the reasons why I absolutely adore it so much and I recommend you to try it too!
