I absolutely love this nivea 4 in 1 firming body oil as it delivers such silky skin. I adore nivea products, great prices and great results. So easy to use just unscrew the top, put some in my hands and rub in, the oil sinks in really fast and is awesome for dry skin for hydrating without a greasy, oily feel, it gives skin a lovely healthy sheen and a glow that is flattering. It firms skin and is deeply nourishing. it is quite runny and a little goes a long way and the smell is not strong so it wont clash with perfume. I recommend using this both morning and night, a lovely product at a great price point that I highly recommend
I am a regular user of all sorts of hydrating body oil. I also like a good multi-tasking product for my post-pregnancy body. I was very excited when I heard about this Nivea 4-in-1 Firming Body Oil. I love Nivea body products, I love a good hydrating body oil, and did you say "firming" AS WELL? That just sounds too good to be true! I have researched a lot online and I have read nothing but good reviews on this product. After using it for a few months now, I found that it is suitable for my skin type only in the warmer weather, but not hydrating enough in Winter.
The Nivea 4-in-1 Firming Body Oil is packaged in a cylindrical plastic bottle. It is very slimline and is easy to be stored in a bathroom cabinet, or packed in a gym bag. I really like that the oil does not leak. The bottle is designed in a way that the oil is poured out from the bottle, rather than pump or spray. Because the oil is completely transparent and quite thin in consistency, it can be difficult to control the amount to be poured out. More often than not I pour out more than I need. Because of this, I found myself using up this product quite quickly.
I have very dry skin, especially on my legs and during winter. My skin can be so dry that it becomes itchy. I never skip using a moisturising product on my body after shower, and I found that a good oil will keep my skin hydrated until the next shower. I have a few favourites. Amongst those, sweet almond oil and macadamia oil seem to work the best on my fussy skin.
The first impression I have is that the Body Oil is quite heavily fragranced compared to other Nivea body products. Most Nivea products have a typical clean fragrance in its products, but this Body Oil smells nothing like it. It is a lot more floral that I anticipated. At first, I felt that it was quite over-powering. However, over time, this unique fragrance really grew on me. The oil certainly has a rather “dry” feel to it, as oppose to the other 100% plant oil which I have used – those feel a bit more “wet”. I apply a very generous amount on my body (well, like I said, quite often I just pour too much and I wasn't going to wash them down the drain!). The oil is very quickly absorbed and there is no greasy feeling afterwards. I can get dressed immediately.
However, after using this body oil in winter for about a week or so, my skin felt quite itchy and dry patches also started to develop. I do not feel that this oil provides the level of hydration that I need. On a closer inspection, this Body Oil’s major component is Caprylic/capric Triglyceride. It provides a base for the other plant oils (avocado oil, cotton seed oil and macadamia oil etc.) – the ingredient that gives a “dry” feeling and the quickly absorbing property to the oil. While I have no issue using this ingredient on my skin, the plant oils in the Body Oil have probably been diluted that they become not so effective on my skin. I have saved the rest and started using them again in Spring, when the weather is a lot warmer. Not surprisingly, I achieved much better result - my skin is now silky smooth, looks and feels hydrated. That said, I am still slightly disappointed as I was hoping to find a firming body oil that I can use all year round. While I will keep using this in Spring and Summer, I have to look for an alternative for the cooler seasons.
In terms of firming, I am yet to notice any results. However, I have only used one bottle so far. Perhaps a longer term use is needed for any visible firming results.
I was lucky enough to trial this product - Nivea has been around forever and is a decent basic range that I have used off and on over the years depending on my budget. The packaging reflects the price its basic and the the container was a user friendly container with a screw top and a squirt into your hand function. I would like to see this come out in travel sizes as a little goes a long way.
The scent was a little strong on application but it is soft and feminine and dissipated quickly so there were no clashes with my usual perfumes.
The feel - Oh My! soft, silky, soothing and quickly absorbed. Just lovely, I smothered myself in it after my evening shower and I felt so pampered.
My skin instantly looked better and had a lovely soft sheen without looking or feeling greasy. My stretch marks and other imperfections are still there but everything looks and feels better . I love this product and will definitely recommend and buy again.
I love this product. It's easy to dismiss anything with the word 'Firming' in the title as marketing spin, but after a few weeks of use, it's definitely no lie.
I like to use this after my shower across my neck, chest, stomach, arms and hips. It hydrates the skin, and leaves it feeling silky. It took a few weeks of consistent use before I noticed any firming, but I definitely did at about the 6 week mark. It hasn't been a total body transformation or better than going to the gym, but I've noticed a more even and firm feeling everywhere I use it.
I also like the fresh scent of this product. Plus, a little goes a long way, so a bottle lasts a long time. I've been using this daily for over 3 months and I'm still only halfway through a bottle (with the next repurchased one ready to do).
I've been recommending this is everyone I know for a cheap and cheerful body oil with effective firming benefits.
I have been using this after each shower for a few weeks now and I am so happy with how it makes my skiln look and feel. Add in the low price and it's a winner.
I’ve been using this body for the past couple of weeks, and so far I am finding it to be a great oil for the warmer months. It has a pleasant,delicate scent and is one of the lightest oils I have used, so it absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky or heavy residue. This lightness can make it difficult to apply, however once you are used to it, it’s not a problem.
Nivea claims that this oil will firm, even skin tone,nourish and reduce the appearance of stretchmarks, and while I haven’t noticed any dramatic improvements as yet, it does leave my skin feeling moisturised and smooth, which are my main requirements.
A little goes a long way, so I think this 200 ml bottle will last quite a while. Also, the plastic bottle is great for use in the bathroom(oil, glass and tiles aren’t a good combination!).
Overall, I like this product and will continue to use it,and would recommend it to others!
I had to purchase this the other week when I saw it, and I'm so glad I did. I noticed a difference the first time I used the NIVEA 4 in 1 Firming body oil. I have a problem with dry skin all year round and have tried similar products before but never thought they would help balance my combination skin. I was completely surprised by how effective this is!
I applied this to my skin straight after showering. Straight away my skin felt incredibly smooth, soft and appeared firmer. I also added to my bubble bath for extra moisture and it feels just wonderful. It has a compact and secure packaging also making it great for when travelling. With this product you can't go wrong. If you suffer from any dryness or just need a skin booster and need something quick, easy and extremely affordable, then this is the product for you.
I have sampled a few skincare creams on the market,this product was everything i was looking for with the main appeal being it was all my skin needed in one jar.It has a lovely scent and felt luxurious on my skin,it melts into your skin almost immediately and maintains a feeling of complete hydration without promoting oil or surface shine throughout the day,After using this product i must say my skin looks the best it has in a long while and a little of this product goes a long way so is also good value for money,I was always concerned with uneven skintone which you can visibly see this product has fixed and because of this i would highly recommend this product to anyone wirh uneven skin issues or who just want their skin feeling and looking firmer and radiant,I truly believe in this product and am glad i had the opportunity to try it out,i will definately be continuing to use this product in the future,Nivea is unlike any other product ive tried before the results were amazing and i have now found my forever skincare product unless they somehow bring out a better one but this one is definately best for now.
Loved the product. It will be a feature in my shopping list.
A nice light scent, a light viscousity that doesn't clog the skin.
What's not to like??
I was very luckily selected to trial and review this product as part of the Reviewcrew. The Nivea 4in1 oil is packaged efficiently, easy to hold and apply. It has a pleasant talc like fragrance which does not overwhelm. Applied twice daily after showering and before bed I found the dry oil is absorbed quickly and has a non greasy consistency. I liked the fact that I did not have to allow time before dressing and my skin felt softer and smoother a few hours after applied. It has improved the texture and tone of my skin on my arms and décolletage. My legs are no longer scaly from the drying winter weather and my age spots have even faded. Stretch marks are not of great concern to me so I didn’t focus on those during the trial. It has come at the perfect time for me to nourish and prepare my skin for summer. I am very pleased with the results and will continue to use this product. It is reasonably priced and a little really does go a long way, I will definitely be considering repurchasing after this bottle runs out. I also only received this one week before the review due date so I’m very interested to see how my skin feels after continued use (The packaging suggests firmer skin after 2 weeks of use). I would highly recommend this product to those of us with mature skin and plan to give some to my mother because I think she would also see the benefits.
Trialled this product for a week. Nice fragrance, absorbed easily , good price, a bit tricky to apply due to runny consistency of oil. Perhaps would work better as a spray. Not instantly absorbed so need to ensure skin is dry prior to dressing. After using for a week didn't notice a huge improvement in my skin.
To be honest I wasn't sure if I was going to like NIVEA 4 in 1 Firming Body Oil because I don't like feeling greasy and smothered. I kept an open mind and I applied the oil every morning and evening and was pleasantly surprised. It absorbs as quickly as it goes on and the results are instant, silky smooth skin all day! I couldn't believe how a tiny bit of oil could revitalise my dry winter skin bringing it back to life but it has. The fragrance is subtle which is really important because I can use it before going bed and not be irritated all night. Over all I would have to say that my skin feels incredibly soft and I will be buy another bottle of Nivea 4 in 1 when this one runs out. I would recommend trying this product.
I really like this oil , it is light and does not leave my skin feeling greasy or sticky. The scent is lovely and not overpowering :) It absorbed into my skin quickly and after trialling it for a couple of weeks I noticed my skin looked healthier and felt softer. I did not notice any difference in my stretchmarks though, maybe It takes longer for those to fade.
I loved this oil. It feels slightly greasy when it is first put on, but within a minute or so it is completely absorbed, My skin felt so much softer and much more hydrated. I will continue to use this oil. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it was a bit messy to pour from the bottle and the bottle became quite slippery, if it were to be in a spray it would be perfect.
Totally surprised by this product. It is very light and I expected it would result in dry skin after a period of time. Not only was that not the case for me, I had noticed after 2 days use my skin felt amazingly soft, supple, and firm every day after showering. No dry sensation any time across the day after applying. I didn't use it liberally to start with, so it took a bit of adjusting to how much was comfortable for me and it took a few seconds for it to absorb, with good lasting qualities and no sense of feeling oily. Love the feel of my skin after this brief time and will definitely look out for it when I'm due to replace.
Loved being able to trial this oil. Was initially concerned that it might be greasy but was thrilled to find that it was absorbed quickly without any oily residue. My skin felt softer and smoother after using it for just a few days. I can't say that I noticed a big difference in the few small scars that I have but that may take a bit longer. Overall it is a great product, reasonably priced and definitely value for money.
I had really high hopes for this oil. I use one of Nivea's body lotions on a regular basis with good results. However this oil was disappointing. I found it hard to rub into my skin and needed to apply twice on areas like knees and elbows. I didn't notice any particular improvement in the appearance of my skin. So it ended up being a bit of a letdown for me.
It was non greasy and absorbed well. Did not find it helped with my uneven tones on my legs. I would still recommend it as an all over moisturiser.
I loved the smell of this product, it felt really nice on my skin and soaked in very fast. It has made my skin feel soft. I haven't noticed any firming effects but I haven't been using it for 2 weeks
Have been using this product for two weeks and I am loving it. I am hot all the time due to menopause and I find a lot of products too heavy as they cause perspiration. No issues at all with this. It is lightweight, silky and non greasy. I love that I can get dressed straight after using it. Have been applying it daily to my upper arms and stomach. The bumps on my upper arms have disappeared and the skin is smooth and soft. Haven't noticed any firming action as yet though two week usage is not very long. Love the scent. Love how this feels. Highly recommended.
