Throughout college and the few years following my best friend and I frequently (and rather aimlessly) browsed the beauty aisles of drugstores, always in search of a new product that would somehow be life changing. It took several years, a few cities, and a new country, but I think I've finally found it.
What makes this lotion special is exactly what's inferred in its name -- Express. Nivea Lotion Express dries almost immediately after being applied to skin. No more feelings of melting slime dripping down your legs on a hot summer day. This is especially important for anyone living in a hot or humid climate, like São Paulo (or all the cities I've called home in the US). It's not for people who want a thick buttery coating on their skin, but is perfect for all day wear and doesn't transfer to clothes.
