Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist

Today I’m reviewing the Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist.

Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist

I have a love/hate relationship with shave gels. Some are great and allow me to get a close shave, while others just cause irritation and my skin feels terrible for hours after I’ve used it. Having sensitive skin is a pain – literally. I’ve come to realize that I have to be picky about the shave gels that I try.

Thankfully, this one the Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist is a favorite for me. It lathers up really well, lubricates my skin so that I don’t get nicks, leaves my skin feeling hydrated, and smells really good to boot. I have to be careful with products that have scents sometimes, but I didn’t have any reactions with this shave gel.

According to the Skintimate website, it contains vitamin E and olive butter. I’m all about getting as much moisture as possible into the skin on my legs because they’re always dry, and they’re typically even worse during the winter months. With all the dry air here, that’s not surprising. I find that if I’m using the right shave gel, moisturizer will absorb into my skin easier. That was the case with this shave gel.

One tip for those of you who also have sensitive skin: make sure you switch out your razor on a regular basis. While you might think that it’s your shave gel causing problems with your skin, it could actually be a dull razor.

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion

I’m a huge fan of Nivea products, so I was looking forward to trying this out. As a result, my expectations were high.

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion

Nivea Firming Body Lotion contains Q10, Creatine, and L-Carnitine. The label claims that with continued use over two weeks it “improves the feeling of skin firmness”.

I found the Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion for normal skin to absorb quickly. It wasn’t greasy at all. I found myself wishing that the formula was a bit thicker than it was. While I wasn’t a huge fan of the consistency, I did like the scent.

As for the packaging, I really liked the pump bottle that it came in. Like most people, I prefer pumps over tubs that require using my fingers instead.

In terms of the firming claims, I didn’t see a difference. I’m not surprised, as I wasn’t expecting a visible difference. However, when it comes to moisturizing, I found that it did a great job.

I tend to have dry hands, elbows, and heels, so I’m always looking for something to work on those trouble spots. My skin felt hydrated and moisturized for hours at a time. I found that I got the best effect applying it right after getting out of the shower in the morning.

Although I didn’t notice a difference in firming, I would still buy this body lotion for it’s moisturizing properites. I also think that it’s a great price for the amount of product you get, so it’s a great value.

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion is available at your local drugstore for $11 or online here (affiliate link).
