|New addition to my bedside table.|
I was recently sent the new Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum. When I first tried it on, a wave of nostalgia hit me and I was transported back to when I was little again. If you’re an 80’s kid like me, you might remember this NIVEA Crème that came in this blue metal tin packaging…
My mum religiously applied this NIVEA Crème creme everyday when I was little and I remember just sitting beside and watching her smoothed the luxurious white cream that smelled so heavenly and womanly to me all over her hands and legs. She’d let me have a go at it sometimes and on some days when she was not watching, I’d open the tin and sneak a bit of it on my legs to catch a whiff of the scent and pretend that I was all grown up. My mum -surely due to her religious application of the NIVEA Crème everyday- has velvety soft and super fair skin up till today and I’ve always wanted skin like hers. Somehow, this NIVEA Crème got lost and forgotten through the growing up years…I’m excited to ‘find’ it again and can’t wait to add it to my daily skincare regime.
What I really like about this body serum is that it’s lightweight and easily absorbs into the skin very quickly. I really dislike the heavy creams that stay on the skin and remain sticky in our humid Singapore weather. Upon application, the skin seems to ‘drink’ the lightweight body serum and my skin immediately feels refreshed, hydrated and softer to the touch.
According to what’s on the packaging, the serum contains Vitamin E+ and Grape Seed Oil. It is also the first body moisture serum with sun protection, SPF 25 PA++ (hooray to SPF!) to combat 10 signs of dry and damaged skin:
I’ve been applying the serum every morning for 3 days in a row especially on my elbows and knees where the skin is rough and dry with some flaky bits. Already I’ve noticed considerable improvements in the skin around those areas – there are lesser lines, almost no more flaky bits and and the skin feels a lot more hydrated, like the moisture is retained as compared to just superficial moisturizing.
I also like that the packaging is simple and fuss free. The flip cap top opens and closes easily and dispenses the serum with a good dosage with every squeeze of the tube. The last thing I want for a body moisturizer is cumbersome screw caps and those open tubs that run the risk of spilling when you leave it on the bed whilst moisturizing.
Thank you, NIVEA for sending this wonderful tube of goodness to me. It keeps my skin hydrated, happy and supple…and I can’t wait to share it with my mum. I’m sure she’ll love it as much as I do!
