REVIEW: Nivea – Body Mouse 48H

Nivea seems to be on a roll when it comes to launching highly innovative beauty products. While we’ve already had the pleasure of meeting their new micellar shampoos and the renowned 1 Minute Urban Detox Mask, the brand now introduces their brand-new Body Mousses.


As fluffy as the fluffiest body butter out there may be, it won’t even come close to the airy texture of Nivea’s new Body Mousse. The spray bottles (comparable to one you’d typically see a deodorant in, if you ignore the cap) hold hydration as you’ve never seen it before.


The light mousse promises to treat your skin to hydration that can last up to 48 hours. The texture is supposed to be as fluffy as a cloud, without being sticky on your skin, while the product should be absorbed by the skin almost instantly. Sounds like a plan, Nivea.


This one is enriched with a nourishing serum and is supposed to be perfect for dry skin. The scent is classic and clean – just as you’d expect from Nivea. Right up my alley!


There’s also this one, meant for extra dry skin. Honestly, it’s hard for me to tell the difference between both formulas. My skin seems to be happy with either one.


The cap makes getting the right amount out quite easy – though it can be tricky to determine exactly how much that is at first. I overused on the first few applications, leading to sticky skin. It’s not a problem if you use the right amount, although I do feel like the product doesn’t disappear immediately. Don’t try to put skinny jeans on right after applying this – trust me when I say you won’t succeed.


The light mousse makes a slight crackling sound upon application: you can actually hear the bubbles melting into your skin. Which I like! The product feels smooth and it works, while the gimmicky formula makes it something you (and your friends!) need to try. Nivea also came out with two other versions, one with cucumber and one with raspberry, which sound like a pure treat as well.

The new Nivea Body Mousse van be found at Kruidvat. for € 5,99 (200 ml) and online at
