Rated 4.49 out of 5 stars
First product review ever but I wanted to show some love for my favorite product.
I got this Nivea gel stuff because I was finished with the emerging wrinkles on my neck. I'm 44 and have really good skin but my neck was starting to look crinkly and my chin had a little turkey waddle. I read that retin-a was good but couldn't find that in the drugstore. I found retinol or whatever but the Nivea with CoQ caught my eye b/c it was 2 for one and I thought it might tighten up those areas. Well, I swear on a stack of Bibles, it works! I am going to buy a bunch of bottles hang on to them so I never run out!!!
totally try it.
I used the product daily after bath for a month and did not see any difference in skin firming on my target areas of arms and legs. I have dry skin so it also was not moisturizing at all. It might work for those with regular to oily skin. I found another brand that offers both firming and moisturizing for my dry skin type; so ultimately I returned the Nivea Q10 Plus Firming.

I like this product because it isn't thick and is easy to apply. It doesn't have a scent either which is a plus for me. While it mostly absorbs fast, I do feel like my skin feels tacky for a few hours afterwards. Not sticky, so overall not the worst, but I feel like when my arms are bent I can feel the pull on the inner elbow when I stretch out, if that makes sense.. Still will continue to use the product until it's gone but doubt I will repurchase it.

I just wanted a body lotion, but this is so nice! blends into my skin effortlessly, and has a light scent. The scent is like a floral baby powder my mom has stolen a few pumps here and there because she loves it to. I do have to re apply every few hours or so but that's because I have psoriasis/dry skin.

Love the way this isn't sticky or heavy. Had a nice smell! I beverage know whether to trust comments so I took a chance and glad I did!!

When I reached my mid-40s my skin started changing quite a bit. I went through a lot of different brands to find something that worked. This one was best by far of keeping my skin soft and eliminating the aging/crepe thing that starts happening as we age. It's my go-to now.
At first I didn't like the smell - it's not bad, just not really much of anything. It's definitely not a scented lotion, which is probably good for sensitive skin like mine.

None greasy lotion- really works in tights the skin on you body.

This lotion works good for me & the price, is very reasonable, for sure.
Jackie from Plymouth, MA
This product leaves me skin so smooth. It seems to be diminishing the appearance of cellulite (of course, along side a health diet and exercise). I enjoy the smell. I took one star off because it does appear to be a bit sticky, as others have mentioned. However, it's not a huge deal to me, especially for the price and results. I will continue to purchase.

I started using this in the late 90's when it first came out. Needless to say I went through 2 pregnancies without one stretch mark. This is by far the best firming lotion. Lately it seems sticky to me. Not sure if they changed the formula but I'll still use.

I use this morning and night on legs, arms, chest, feet, and hands. Gives me smooth soft skin. Eliminates those dry bumps that form on back of arms. Use throughout the day on my hands, and keeps skin moist and cuticles soft. Love this lotion.
Marina from Rancho Cucamonga, California
I decided to buy this after buying the firming gel. I'm currently using both. I've noticed some difference in the texture and firmness of my skin. Even looks like my cellulite is reduced. I have really dry skin and usually buy lotion just for that but Spring is here and I don't feel confident wearing shorts yet. I work out 4-5 days out of the week but the back of my legs are not up to my standards yet. Anyway, after buying this and using it, I do see improvement in my skin. Doesn't dry out as it has to others. Surprisingly, it's feels really supple. But to me it is sticky. I can't sleep comfortably I wake up at least twice in the middle of the night because it makes me sweat even though I sleep with the fan on. As I was going through my cabinets recently, I realized I had another bottle from a few years back. I guess I forgot I have tried this before and the reason I stopped using it was because it made me feel uncomfortable sleeping with this on and at that time I guess having firmer skin wasn't that important to me lol. So six years later my skin has become very important to me and I will continue to use along with the gel because I do see improvement. I just have to wear my slinky pants at night. I use both products twice a day to with the hopes it will keep firming my skin.

This lotion has a very perfume smell and dried out my skin. I also feel like it didn't firm my skin at all and maybe even had the opposite effect. I don't have cellulite (humble brag!) so, maybe I would have seen a difference if I did?
Meltheskincarelover from Warsaw
I use this lotion when trouble areas because that is what it's for. I got rubbed the lotion on my skin and after about 30 seconds. The skin is sticky. I don't like the feeling I get from this lotion. Don't get me wrong the smell is great. It's a shame because I really wanted to give this product a 5-star rating. Overall it's not a terrible lotion but not the best.
Pezz18 from New haven, ct
This lotion number one has the most amazing smell ever. If your not into scented lotion, I wouldn't buy, but if you are, this lotion lasts all day and makes your skin sooo smooth!!! I used it on my growing belly due to pregnancy and it is my number 1!
Steph from DFW
Best moisturizing lotion I've ever used helps tighten skin too!
Hannah from Louisville Kentucky
I tried his product about a year ago and discontinued use when I noticed my skin peeling and looking very dry. I decided to give it another try recently and bought another bottle thinking the first experience could've been just a coincidence and wasn't caused by the product. After a few weeks of using the product my skin began looking very dry and peeelibg again.
Chris from Menifee
I use this daily
Island girl from Florida
The best lotion I've ever used for my dry skin.
Mae from OKC
I used this lotion for 4 weeks in combination with 20-30 min of exercise per day. I honestly didn't see any changes, sometimes I even feel like it accentuated the cellulite on my thighs. I've used other lotions that are admittedly more expensive but ultimately more effective. It often felt sticky for a few hours after application but it was hydrating so in that sense it worked. The scent is hard to describe, it's not a perfume, possibly a light chemical smell but fresh enough to wear around.

This lotion really Smooths my skin leaving it soft and moisturized I have my husband using it now also.
Betsy from Plymouth Ma.
I tried this for a week before I wrote this review. This moisturizes okay but it was extremely tacky after absorbing. I did not feel it absorbed enough and did not like the tacky feel it left on my skin. I wasn't a fan of the fragrance either.

I am so fussy about body moisturizers. So many are too heavy. This is perfect.

Great for after shower.
Kim from Chillicothe, Ohio.
I just love this lotion! Using 16 years now. When my grandson was a baby my daughter would hold him and say " I know who's been holding you! You smell like grandma, smells so sweet!" Can't say enough awesome things about it! I have a bottle in the bathroom and one on my night stand! Thank you for a great product.
