The Review Crew® panel

Beauty Crew sent the NIVEA 4 in 1 Firming Body Oil to women aged between 40 and 64 who are concerned with skin dryness, a loss of firmness, uneven skin tone, and stretchmarks.

What they loved

How quickly it absorbed: There was an overwhelming sense of surprise from the Review Crew® panel that, despite the formulation being an oil, it absorbed quickly into skin and didn’t leave a greasy or heavy feeling on the skin’s surface. Testers commented that the quick absorption meant they could get dressed or into bed without worrying about the oil transferring. 

How soft it left their skin: While some reviewers did see improvements in scars, stretchmarks, and skin tone, the biggest benefit they saw was in how soft and supple the oil left their skin, with many mentioning it had transformed dry and flaky winter skin. 

How subtle the scent was: Many testers found the body oil’s scent to be subtle and didn’t overwhelm them during the day (or night), with some mentioning that they appreciated it didn’t interfere with any perfumes they had applied.

Over 88% of testers rated this body oil four or more stars out of five.

Good to know

Some testers found that if they squeezed the bottle, the oil would come out too quickly and be a little messy, so the best way to use the bottle is to tip it upside down and let the oil slowly drip into the palm of your hand. 

The verdict

“As I have very dry skin, particularly in winter, I wasn't convinced the oil would be enough to keep my skin hydrated, but it works - even 12 hours after application, my skin still felt very soft and supple. I will definitely continue using the oil and at the price, it’s very affordable!”

“It's now been over a week since I've started using it, and my skin has improved in moisture retention, and feels very smooth to touch. I have many scars from surgeries on my torso and breast, and although they are old scars, they too have softened in appearance.”
Review Crew® member
“This is by far the most successful result I've had with a body oil, and with each application my chronically dry skin has become more of a distant memory, something salt scrubs, oils and moisturisers all combined have never been able to accomplish. Dry skin be gone, and it has! It even cures dry winter heels.”
