Review: Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion

Before Using the Product..
As active as I am when it comes to putting on makeup, smearing lotion on my skin is a different story. I don’t see the point of using as there are no desirable effects, for me at least.

 I live in a tropical country and it will just make me feel sticky and greasy; and when in air-conditioned room, will just not help in any way the dryness of my skin. Also, I feel it takes a lot of time to put on and I’m the girl who’s always in the nick of time. Well, blame the thoughts to the majority of lotions sold in our country that I believe does absolutely nothing; only provide irksome feeling on a hot day. But seriously, I can tell you I lack knowledge when it comes to lotions. I don’t take time to browse, read and search for the best or just allow myself to be a guinea pig in trying such that I feel makes me one sided with only the knowledge that since a lotion is not good, all lotions are not good . Wrong thinking right as it is very much important to take care of the skin. I do wear sunblock don’t get me wrong but the moisturization/hydration part is what I’m lacking. When Nivea released the claim “Repairs 8 SIGNS of dry skin” for a lotion, I got intrigued – not excited intrigued but uncertainty intrigued. A lot of product claims to do this and that it’s all in one, but only a few lives up to their promises so it’s really questionable (according to some people, not me..I still haven’t found a promising lotion). And again I lack knowledge on this stuff so dry skin is just DRY skin no other 8 signs, lol. But well, it will still tackle having dry skin, and my skin is dry so.. Lets evaluate me: Dry – Yes, Redness – a little, rough – heel area, tight – sometimes the face, flaky – yes, dull –yes, itchy – depends on the air temp, peeling –sometimes. A BIG hmmm..

After using the Product..
Not all lotions are bad after all. It pleases me to say that I found a lotion that works for me. Though it’s early to say that it repaired my 8 signs of dry skin, I love the softness and smoothness it gives after just one application. And what’s good about the product is it lasts long. Ex. Went out for 15 hours and after my skin still feels soft and smooth, the way it felt the morning. No sticky or greasy feeling. The thing I love most about Nivea is the light soft clean scent all their products seem to have and this particular lotion gives just that. I sometimes caught myself sniffing my skin..hehe. Again, I don’t know if this will give permanent effect on the skin if used regulary but the immediate results are promising. 

Netphone Launch. Not invited this time but working as tech support..with soft
proving how much I love the product..chose nivea express hydration body lotion over sunblock as I was rushing to the launch and can only apply one product..(and I call myself a loyal sunblock user) :p 

I say..
No harm in trying as it is a good lotion after all plus the price starts at 36php (less than $1), so you really won’t lose anything. The only thing missing in this product is SPF. But if it will lessen the effect of the lotion, no..I’d rather layer my skin with sunblock and the orig product. Then again, if they make one with high spf retaining all the great effects of the product, nivea express hydration body lotion..Godsent! lol. But still it  tops my list as the best..for now. :)

 125 ml for 65 php (around $1.5)
