Nivea Powerfruit Relax Shower Gel Review

On a recent offline :P shopping spree of some essentials, I came across the two new Nivea shower gels on the counter (coincidentally it was just the day before I received the press release for the same! ). 

Though the pink one looked equally tempting with the yellow beads, on sniffing I liked the purple Powerfruit one and brought it home. After trying it for past few weeks and soon finishing it up, here is what I think of it.

PRICE:  Rs.175

QUANTITY: 250 ml


WHAT IT CLAIMS: Nivea   Powerfruit   Relax contains   anti-oxidants with   blueberry extracts that   help   nourish   your skin. This shower gel has a pleasant fruity fragrance of the acai berry that helps soothe your senses. The   fine mixture   of   power   fruit   and   blueberry   gently   cleanses   your   skin feeling   pampered and revived.

MY EXPERIENCE: Nivea Powerfruit Relax Shower Gel comes in a simple flip top cap packaging. Although the gel looks purple in the bottle, it is actually colorless, or say with just a hint of color that is not visible to eyes. It smells slightly fruity that is pleasant and relaxing, and it reminds me of some old shampoo whose name I can't seem to remember. It is quite runny in consistency and lathers extremely well which feels a little silky on skin.      

Good thing, it doesn't dry out skin (HydraIQ technology?!) even though it gently cleanses away dead skin (even without a loofah). Bad thing, it feels a little slippery on skin and requires extra time and water to wash off. Apart from that I didn't find anything bad. Oh and I don't know how I finished up the bottle so fast, like in 3 weeks! To sum it up,

  • Pleasant and relaxing aroma.
  • Runny consistency that spreads and lathers easily.
  • Feels silky on skin.
  • Cleanses skin gently yet effectively.
  • Doesn't dry out skin.
  • Simple and effective packaging.
  • Economical and easily available. 
  • Comes with a free loofah. Gee! :P

  • Feels a little slippery, maybe because of it's moisture retaining formula.
  • Priced higher than the previous variants.
  • I finished up the bottle way too fast. :P 

VERDICT: This has been my first try with any of the Nivea shower gels and I quite liked it, so much so that I got the Creme Soft shower gel from Nivea to try next. Review would be up soon. Have you tried any of the new/old Nivea shower gels?

RATINGS:  4.25 out of 5
