As some of you may know, I embarked on the NIVEA Body Whitening Serum 14-Day Challenge not too long ago (Read about it here.) You might recall that I was extremely excited to start on this challenge, and was really looking forward to more hydrated and brighter skin.
So 14 days later, what has been my experience?
One word – awesome!
From day one, I have been applying the serum meticulously. In the morning before I head for work, during mid-day when I go for lunch, I make sure I give my arms and legs a quick rub before I step into the sun, so that they are well protected from the UV rays. Yups, I have one tube of this wonderful serum on my office table, just so it is within reach as and when I want to use it.
The serum was my trusty companion too when I headed to the pool. It protected me in more ways than one - it shields my skin from UV rays and keeps it hydrated from the drying effects of chlorine. Perfect yet affordable choice for a ‘water baby’ like me.
The most important question on your minds is – was it effective? Did it do what it promised in 14 days?
Now, I would not declare that a miracle has happened, and the terrible pigmentation spots on my feet have disappeared. That would have been magic.
However, I can confidently say that the pigmentation in those areas have evened out, and my skin has become more hydrated and smooth. It looks and feels healthier!
Yay, I’m on the way to getting beautiful legs like my mum’s! Hmmm… if I get a tube of the serum for her, will her skin become even more beautiful than it is now?
Nah… I’ll keep to myself. It will be my little secret. Thanks NIVEA!
