This summer's heat is intense! I feel like my skin is getting fried whenever the sun touches it. I barely go out of the house, and if I do, I make sure I will be somewhere indoors like the mall.
But recently, I've been walking/jogging with my mom every morning and there are also times that I have to be somewhere and have to be under the harsh sunlight. My uneven skin tone is currently as uneven as ever. My arms and shoulders are darker than my face and my face is darker than my legs... well, you know what I mean.
Fortunately, I've been recently going over the products inside the house and saw this bottle of lotion that Nivea sent us some months ago. It was before my sis, Trace, went to Australia. You see, when we were the ones handling Peachy Pink Sisters, she does most of the writing and also the one reviewing and using the skin care products. It has only been now that I started using such. I was just into makeup alone 'til I realized that having really good skin can make my makeup look hell of a lot better. Haha!
Anyway, I wanted to finish off most of the products to make new ones (one of the reasons we have our little blog sale too). So I started using the lotion which is the...
Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair & Protect Body Milk
Here are some info from their press release:
50X MORE VITAMIN C FOR HEALTHY & EXTRA FAIR SKIN
Who is it for?
For beauty seekers and modern women of today who feel that their skin is dull and sun-receptive because their life style exposes it frequently to the sun so damage & dullness accumulate. For women who want more and who want to achieve more.
What does it do?
The first whitening lotion with the power of concentrated whitening from nature. It is specially developed for the needs of Asian skin and offers concentrated whitening for extra fair and radiant skin. Its 50 x higher anti-oxidant Vitamin C concentration protects skin from the harmful effects of the sun even with frequent sun exposure.
The innovative fast absorbing formula with unique Super Fruits extracts – Camu Camu and Acerola Cherry – repair and micro-exfoliate accumulated damaged and dull skin and boost skin’s natural barrier from sun damages.
Camu Camu (Myrciaria Dubia) is a native fruit from the Amazonian rainforest that has the highest recorded amount of natural ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) than any known fruit on the planet. Compared to Lemon, it has 50x more Vitamin C power. It also has a full complement of minerals and amino acids that help the absorption of Vitamin C.
Its advanced UVA/UVB filters protect the skin from UV-rays which cause the formation of pigmentation, dark and uneven skin tone.
It also has the Beiersdorf exclusive and Nobel Prize-skin moisturizing technology Hydra IQ, that hydrates the skin from within, giving long lasting softness and smoothness for over 24 hours.
Result: Your skin is noticeably fairer and smoother so you look and feel your most beautiful!
I've been using the products for almost 3 weeks now. My skin is very moisturized. For the whitening part, I guess it is safe to say that the unevenness of the skin tone of my arms are better than what it used to look like.
I like how it smells. It's not how milk would smell (which is what I was really looking forward to - I loooove milk), but it's a very pleasant smell. I actually like the smell of most Nivea products. :P
What I really love most of all is how it feels on my skin when I apply it. It's not thick and sticky! It gets absorbed by the skin quickly so whenever I go to bed, I'm assured that the product has not been wiped off or transferred on the bed sheets but remains on my skin.
So will I be buying it? Yes. But only when I get the chance to empty some other lotions and body butters I have in-stock. Haha!
Btw, it is also available in - Whitening Cell Repair & Protect Body Milk with 40x more Vitamin C power.
It comes in different sizes too. Here's the list with the equivalent price:
