Product Review: Nivea UV Whitening Serum

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

     Affordable and Effective! Two words that describe one giant name in skin care and that's NIVEA. Over the years, the brand already produced quality skin care products that caters to different skin care needs of every individuals. I love Nivea and will always be! I already raved their whitening lotion here: Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk 40x Vitamin C. Just click the link if you want to read my review. This brand is very close to my heart and if celebrities trust Belo for their skin, I trust NIVEA for all my skin care needs. So when NIVEA Philippines brought this intensive whitening serum here in our country, I said to myself this will be the next star in their whitening lotion variants. Truly it is! Wanna know why? Click continue and find out :) 


     NIVEA UV Whitening Serum, the Philippines’s first and only intensive whitening serum for the body. This is NIVEA’s first foray in introducing serum to the Philippine market, in its pursuit to provide more long-lasting whitening products that do not only stop at whitening, but persist to create a healthier, more vibrant skin tone that lasts.

Nivea UV Whitening Serum
What I like:
  • Affordable.
  • Since it has runny consistency, the lotion is absorbed faster.
  • It is very light and non- greasy.
  • Moisturizes my skin and leaves it soft and smooth after use.
  • Has a 25 spf PA++ UV protection.
  • The scent is a bit powdery but not overpowering.
  • I love the GLOW it gives after use and my skin still has a glow until the next day.
  • Lightens and evens out skin tone after a month of daily usage. For the record, the fastest whitening lotion that I've tried :)
What I don't like:
  • Comes only in one size. I wish they can come up with a smaller size that's good not only for individuals who have tight budgets but also for travelling buddies.
Will I repurchase? Yes!

Recommendation:
     I give this lotion a 5/5 rating. Can I give it 6/5? I love Nivea and how it lightens my skin. I can attest to its lightening effect because I've been using it for years. Now that they've created this serum type of lotion, expect to see faster whitening results. If you want to try a whitening lotion that is affordable, then Nivea is the one your looking for. If compared to other Nivea whitening lotion variants, this will give your skin the Glow that you're looking for. Have vibrant and glowing skin in no time. Try it and see for yourself!

Good Times!~

  4. The glow part is intriguing! Makes me want to purchase it but, since it's a serum, it may be greasy on my skin, no?

  16. I usually just use regular shea butter lotion. I don't use a lot of lotion on my face because it's kind of oily. I might try something like this.

  24. Very interesting product. I have used Nivea firming body lotion for a long time and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really love Nivea products.. I didn't know they made a whitening serum. I am more of a tanning lotion person myself, but I really like the fact that it can provide a healthy glow and can help even out skin tone. My skin is very sensitive, so I feel like there is always discoloration that could use fading. Thanks for your review.
