Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair Body Lotion Review

Hello Beauties! ❤❤❤
Have a great day! 🙂

Non-greasy body lotions are a must, not only during summers but also during monsoons.. ❤ They quench the skin’s thirst for hydration while not making it uncomfortable and hard for the skin to breathe..

Today my review is about such a body lotion that comes with sun protection and whitening effects, from the house of a well known brand, NIVEA! ❤

The brand NIVEA has a vast range of body lotions catering to the need of every skin type.. This lotion from the brand is specifically formulated to tackle the Indian skin problems like suntan, dullness, dark spots and more.. 🙂

The lotion comes in a typical NIVEA packaging, that is, a dark blue cap and a white bottle.. The bottle I possess is a huge one of 400ml and has a pump dispenser, but there are smaller sizes available that are quite travel friendly.. ❤

The Nivea extra whitening lotion is white in colour and has a medium to runny consistency.. It has a pleasant, refreshing sweet smell that is mild enough not to bother the Sensitive noses.. ❤

The lotion spreads easily on the skin and gets absorbed completely within a minute.. It doesn’t make the skin greasy even on the most humid days.. It keeps my normal to dry skin well hydrated during the Summers and the monsoons.. ❤

But the lotion lacks to provide enough moisturisation to my skin, that turns dry to extremely dry during the colder winter months and the skin feels stretchy and cracks even after applying the lotion generously… 🙁

According to me, It would suit all skin types during the Summers and monsoons and oily/combination skin might even find it apt to use during Winters.. ❤

Now, as far as the “Whitening and Smoothening” claims are concerned, I haven’t noticed any Whitening or Brightening of my tanned arms or legs even after months of use.. It does smoothen the texture of the skin a little bit on prolonged use but apart from that, it hardly does anything noticeable..

Also, the SPF present in it is quite less to provide a decent sun protection and I have tanned quite a bit, even after wearing the lotion liberally on exposed parts of my body..

So, the extra whitening cell repair SPF lotion from Nivea is just a regular, light and non greasy body lotion with some added benefits of sun protection.. 😀

1. Affordable and easily available. Buy it from here!
2. Travel friendly sizes available.
3. Non-greasy and easily absorbed.
4. SPF 15 is Present.
5. Smoothens skin a bit with regular use.
6. Sans Paraben and SLS.


1. Won’t suit normal to dry skin during Winters.
2. SPF present is too less to prevent skin from tanning.
3. Doesn’t live upto its “Whitening” claims.

RATING: 3.75/5

FINAL TAKE: The Nivea Extra Whitening body lotion is a good, non-greasy, light, affordable body lotion that would go well for all skin types; but if you are expecting whitening benefits, it won’t live upto your expectations.. 😛

Hope It Helps! ❤

  1. Actually their is not product that can help in whitening. If we regularly use any product then it will benefit us for sure. But I have faith in Nivea brand as I am using their cream since childhood and it is one of my favourites.

    1. The nivea cream is really good.. i too like it and also their lip balms.. but honestly this one doesn’t even reduce tan noticeably neither has a good spf.. had they just launched it as a body lotion, it would have been nice but when it claims to Brighten skin and fails miserably it is definitely a con na!

  2. Really this is a great product from the house of nivea. I love it for its moisturising effect. This is really good for summer and monsoon. Now a days very few people are attracted by the products whitening claims. So, it is not a matter. The product is really great for hydration of our skin.

  3. Niveau is my favorite brands for moisturizing
    Like you said it’s whitening effect is not up to but can give a try for its amazing moisturizing effect

    1. Yes that’s absolutely true.. the Moisturisation is great for oily combination skin!

  4. To be honest, buying products becoz of whitening claims is really weird- and this is one such product I steer clear off because of the very fact that it claims to give whiter skin- i have used this just because it provides the right hydration for my skin since mine is combination skin

    1. Yes the hydration it provides is apt for oily to combination skin, throughout the year

  5. Nicely reviewed. Nivea is a good brand and come up with many promising products. Thanks for sharing

  6. Great review. Nivea is a great brand and they have some amazing products in few categories.

  7. Nivea is one of my favourite brand. I used it from many years. It’s one of the old and reputed brand . This lotion looks very nice and promising one. I would love to try this one product from Nivea also. Thanks for sharing your review.
