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..

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
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.. 😀

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
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.
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! ❤
I agree this is not for dry skin for during winters
Yes.. doesn’t provide much hydration during winters!
Nivea is a well known brand and has irresistible fragrance in their each products.
Yes the fragrances are really good 🙂
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.
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!
Nice and honest review , what I didn’t liked is presence of so many chemicals in it . The ingredient list is too long & scary .
True that.. it is definitely a con!
I love the skincare products from Nivea. Thanks for the review
Thanks for visiting dear ❤
I love Nivea products.. Tried this too..its an average product
Yes dear.. i also didn’t find it to be very good!
This is just what I wanted as of now for my tanned skin. Will go and buy it for regular use.
You can try it.. but for tanning it works quite average..
I too have used this lotion. It gives nice hydration during summer. Lovely review.
Thanks a lot dear ❤
I really like NIvea brand, however haven’t tried this product yet. Would love to try it soon.

Haha.. do try it.. i might work well on your skin 🙂
Nivea is one of my favourite brands when it comes to skin care, keep spreading love!

I have been a Nivea loyalist for the longest time now
I too love a few nivea products 🙂
I have been using Nivea products since long, they are really good
True that.. some of the nivea products are really good 🙂
Thank you for an honest and informative review. I do feel that SPF mentioned is not enough for sun protection.
Thats true.. the spf is really less!
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.
Yes that’s true.. thanks for visiting 🙂
This product works great for summers and especially in cities in Mumbai ❤
True that! 🙂
Me and my family using Nivea products since so many years now and i totally agree with your review
Thanks a lot dear ❤
I wanted to know how this lotion works. Thanks for reviewing! 🙂
Thanks for visiting dear ❤
Have never tried this brand before… Would surely love to try this…
This brand has good Moisturising lotions.. do try them 🙂
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
Yes that’s absolutely true.. the Moisturisation is great for oily combination skin!
I like Nivea products ,they have amazing products. Nice review..
Thanks a lot 🙂
The nivea body lotion is really great. I use the one comes in Blue bottle. will try this one as well now.
The hydrating body lotions are really great from Nivea ❤
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
Yes the hydration it provides is apt for oily to combination skin, throughout the year
I quite like Nivea body lotions… And you know whitening claims are always like this… If we ignore that, then the product seems good to try out…
Yes dear that’s true 🙂
Nicely reviewed. Nivea is a good brand and come up with many promising products. Thanks for sharing
Thanks for visiting dear ❤
whitening claims are always like that but apart from that it sounds like a perfect product
Yes apart from that it is really good 🙂
Even I have been using this moisterizer these days. You are right it is not enough for dry skin types during coming winters
Thank you for seconding my opinion 🙂
I am sure whitening products never live up to what they claim… but overall, I quite like Nivea products
I too like the lip balms and hydrating Moisturisers 🙂
I like Nivea body lotions but I don’t think SPF 15 can do anything.
Same here babe!
Great review. Nivea is a great brand and they have some amazing products in few categories.
That’s true! 🙂 Thanks for visiting dear
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.
