Did you know that exposure to the sun and harsh environmental influences results in the loss of moisture and essential oils that protects your skin, leaving it dry and damaged? Such skin can make you look older than you are. Lucky me received a tube of Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum! It is the first body serum that not only repairs 10 signs of accumulated dry and damaged skin within 24 hours, but it also has SPF 25 to protect it from the sun!
- 100x concentrated Vitamin E & Grape Seed Oil - Has strong antioxidant properties, capable of defending skin cells from sun-induced problems and free radical damages.
- Avocado Oil - Wonderful emollient and hydrating properties. It is most easily absorbed by the skin and aids in relieving dryness and itch, contributes to regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin, and repairs dry and damaged skin in the process.
- Hydra IQ - Increases the number of water channels, restoring the skin's own moisture supply and regulates the balance of moisture within.
- SPF 25 & PA++ - Both a moisturizer and a sunscreen!
My take on it: I don't have the habit of applying body lotion (slimming cream is more important hahaha) nor sunblock, and with my love for sleeveless clothes, needless to say my skin isn't in the best condition. This Nivea serum is like a lifesaver. However, I feel that it doesn't absorb very well (or takes very long), so I usually apply it at night just before bed. I certainly hope the SPF still works. The very next morning after I used it the first time, I could feel a slight difference in my skin. It feels more moisturized and smoother! Quite surprised actually. XD
And the best part, it's not expensive. Only $8.90 for 200ml~! Available at all leading personal care stores and supermarkets.
