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).

Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm

Today I’m reviewing the Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm.

Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm

This is my second or third tube of this lip balm. I’m usually using several lip balms at the same time – I then them stashed at my desk, in my bag, and by my bed. I clearly hate to have dry lips. Just like other Nivea products that I’ve tried, it does it’s job for an affordable price.

In terms of application, it goes on smooth and doesn’t get clumpy like some lip balms can get. I’ve tried lip balms like that in the past, and no matter how hard I try, there were always clumps. This Nivea lip balm definitely doesn’t have that problem.

This formula includes aloe, so it’s sure to leave your lips feeling moisturized. I found that it absorbed easily into my lips without leaving them feeling greasy. It adds no color to my lips, which I like. It also doesn’t have a scent either.

Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm is available at your local drugstore for $3 for a package of two. Considering how affordable it is and how well it works, I think it’s a steal.

What’s your favorite lip balm? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
