I have been having a dry run. Any blogger with one-(wo)man show would know what these bouts are. You know you have reviews and posts to write, but you just can't force yourself into that chair and get to work... especially the lazy ones like me should realize it even better!

Anyway, coming to the body lotion from Nivea, I have been sent a bottle of Nivea Body Lotion Night Whitening Skin Moisturizer with Vitamin E and Berry Extracts to express my thoughts.

Here is what I think in long and short,

The moisturizer has light berry scents and is thick, but not as moisturizing as I
expected it to be. It's meant for the night and claims to reduce melanin and this control or remove tan. Needless to say it did not and it did not moisturize enough either and I would be really concerned if it DID make me 'fairer' or whitened my skin!
 

First and foremost, I wonder, why would I want to mess with my melanin production? Do I need cancer? Second, I don't want to 'whiten' up. I am excellent in the way I am, with all kind of skills which make me fit for my job.
Third, I was looking for some intensive moisturization which this lotion did not provide.

249 INR for 200 ml is 50 ml less than the other variants of Nivea Body Lotions. In other words, the other variants of body lotions from the brand come in greater quantity, more moisturization and yes, would not try to mess either your complexion or your head with fairness.

Perhaps, it is because of the fact that I don't like the lotion and the fact that the brand whose integrity I trust is now sliding away which made me avoid doing this review and eventually things got so delayed.. I am quite apprehensive of brands which claim to 'whiten' the skin or make me 'fair'. I know in India, there is this absurd and insulting tradition of equating beauty with lightness of skin and definitely, brands, from their business perspective, are banking on that. 

But, Nivea is a brand I have always trusted. I thought they are bigger than taking a part in this condemnable  trend. I thought their quality and brand name was enough to make their products work.

Shall I repurchase? Not at all.

Do I recommend? No. And, one must stay away from whitening products.
