I know a lot of you love light and airy scented lotions to use during hot summers. And that includes me. One lotion I enjoyed using on a daily basis because of its fresh, floral, citrusy scent is the Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk which I’ll be reviewing today.
Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect specially developed for the needs of Asian skin offers concentrated whitening from nature for fairer and radiant skin. It’s 40X higher antioxidant Vitamin C concentration protects skin from the harmful effects of the sun even with normal sun exposure.
Skin compatibility dermatologically proven.
My experience with Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk:
I’ve read a review on IMBB about the pink version of this lotion which is the Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk. In this review, I’ll be sighting some difference I noticed on two lotions since I have them both now to compare.
Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk comes in a white, b-shaped plastic bottle that you can squeeze a bit to dispense the lotion out. The packaging is ordinary yet user friendly. The one I got has 125ml of product in it. The bigger size of this has 400ml of product in it and has pump dispenser too.
Both this orange variant (Whitening) and the pink one (Extra Whitening) has Camu Camu and Acerola Cherry. The one I am reviewing which appears to be the regular one, has 40x Vitamin C concentration while the Extra Whitening variant has 50x Vitamin C concentration.
I mentioned above that I love the scent of this lotion. It has citrus-y floral scent in my opinion. It’s light, fresh and pleasant smelling. The scent stays on my skin for 5 long hours. I compared the scent of 2 Nivea lotions and this orange version smells stronger and better. They both have runny consistency which I love for a lotion to use when it’s hot. I love that it is easy to spread on skin and is absorbed fast.
I used this lotion few months back when the weather here is so cold and is brutally drying to my skin. I had to stop using this since it was not able to satisfy my skin’s need for moisture. I opted for something more moisturizing at that time thinking I can try using this again during the summers when my skin is healthier.
Summer is in full swing where I live and I like that this Nivea Lotion doesn’t feel greasy upon application and hours after. This is satisfyingly lightweight on skin. It was able to relieve dryness on my arms and legs but not much on my hands and feet which are drier areas of my body.
As for the whitening properties of this lotion, I did not notice skin whitening after 3 weeks of use. I’ve used this before too for 2 months, same banana, there’s no whitening effect.
Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk- What I Like:
-It is easy to spread on skin.
-It is lightweight and non-sticky and non-greasy.
-It kept my not-so-dry skin, moisturized the whole day during the summers.
-It says it has UV protection.
It smells pleasant. Scent stays 4 to 5 hours on skin. It leaves my skin smelling fresh the whole day.
-It is affordable.
Nivea Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk- What I Don’t Like:
-I wish that SPF level is specified so I know how protective this is from sun’s harmful rays.
-It could be more moisturizing.
-It has parabens.
-I didn’t notice skin whitening. It is okay as it maintained my skin original tone despite occasional sun exposure.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Of the two Nivea Lotions I mentioned in this review, I’ll pick this Whitening one over the Extra Whitening variant because it smells lovelier. I find this lotion very nice to use during the summers for its lightweight feel on skin. However, I am keen to using a lotion with specified high SPF levels and something that can relieve extra dry skin.
Always wear beauty!
