For the past couple months, I have been testing out a variety of products from Nivea: Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion for Dry Skin, Express Hydration Daily Lotion for Normal to Dry Skin, Touch of Serenity Body Wash and a variety of their lip balms. These products are a nice treat for my dry skin. I'm really becoming a Nivea fan!

Touch of Serenity Moisturizing Body Wash: Hibiscus Blossom Scent
This is a nice treat in the shower. The product is creamy and it lathers well. I just squirt onto a body pouf and I'm good-to-go. It leaves me feeling clean and soft. I really like the scent...just delicious! The scent is Hibiscus Blossom...but I think I detect some apple in there too? Smells soooo good!
Express Hydration Daily Lotion (For Normal to Dry Skin): Lotus Flower Scent
This is my hands-down favorite of this group of products. This lotion seriously smells divine. Without fail, my Husband tells me that I smell great every time this product is freshly applied on my skin. The scent is Lotus Flower. It is a perfumey and floral scent. Its light, but noticeable. Very pretty. Honestly, I would wear a perfume of this scent if they made it! Besides the lovely scent, the product works great as a lightweigtht moisturizer. It is absolutely non-greasy and fast absorbing. It leaves the body with a bit of a "sheen". I use this all over arms, legs, and my upper torso. On super dry parts I use Nivea's Smooth Sensation (see below).
Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion (For Dry Skin):
This lotion is quite a bit thicker that the Express Hydration Daily Lotion. So, it is thicker than a lotion but not as thick as a body butter. It contains super hydrating ingredients like shea butter and glycerin. This product has a typical "lotion scent" (nothing distinct). I like using this on my extra dry parts like elbows, knees, and feet (but you can use this on your entire body).
Overall, I found some winners with these products. They are helping me combat my usual winter dryness and keeping me smelling great! I will totally repurchase the Express Hydration Lotion when I need a new body lotion. I can't resist keeping a product on hand with a scent that both my Husband and myself adore!
