Hi dearies! How's your day? First of all, Happy Halloween! Are you ready to visit your loved ones at the cemetery later? By the way, I wanted to ask an apology if I cannot give you good quality pictures here in my blog because my digicam's batteries are not working. So please bear with me, I'm just using my phone's camera and can't stop my self from posting reviews these past few nights.
When I ran out of another favorite lotion (Mistine), I opt to substitute Nivea Whitening lotions. It's my first love and will always be :) I know Nivea's range of products grew bigger and bigger nowadays. I can still remember how it's container transformed from simple bottles to sexy ones. Even though I use Mistine lotion for more than two years now, Nivea still has a place in my heart. It's my first whitening lotion and I know it does the job with regular use.
On to the review, I'm about to finish this small bottle of Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk 40x Vitamin C. When I saw this on the shelve, I was confused because there's the same bottle of this lotion but doesn't have the vitamin C picture at the bottom of the bottle. So what I did was hold both bottles in my hand and see the difference. Both are whitening and cell repair. The one with berry and licorice extract and the other one with camu camu and acerola cherry extract. I got puzzled so i bought the latter.

|Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk, 2nd to the smallest size|
|Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk, the consistency is runny|
What I like:
- Since it has runny consistency, the lotion is absorbed faster.
- It is very light and non- greasy.
- The shape of the bottle is sexy compared to other lotion bottles.
- Moisturizes my skin feels, soft and smooth after use.
- Has UV protection.
- The scent is a bit powdery but not overpowering.
- Lightens and evens out skin, I think after using it for more than 3 months.
What I don't like:
Will I repurchase? Yes! I always have a stock of this in my cabinet. I use this as a back-up when I ran out of Mistine lotion. Both are effective, I have this notion of not using a lotion for more than three months because I don't want a plateau effect on whitening so I use it alternately after two or three months.
I give this lotion a 5/5 rating. I love Nivea and how it lightens my skin. I can attest to its lightening effect because I've been using it for years. If you want to try a whitening lotion that is affordable, then Nivea is the one your looking for. But results is not just 1-2-3, you have to be patient and use it religiously.
Have you tried the new Nivea Whitening lotion? What Nivea lotion do you use? Share your thoughts!
