My New Secret Weapon

Product Review: Nivea Skin Firming & Toning

I was looking over my stash of stuff one day a few months ago and found this. As I have mentioned before, I always give Terry a list of skincare stuff I want and he fills my stocking full. This product was just sitting there and I decided to give it a try.

I have used it prior to that day. Just not a lot. I initially wanted it so see if I could get some control over the cellulite in my legs. I mean, you girls know what I’m talking about.

DISCLAIMER: This product is not specifically stated for use on your face. …but I did it anyway!

I decided to see what would happen if I applied this to my under-eye area and the (getting kind of) loose skin of my neck.

{another} DISCLAIMER: MY SKIN IS NOT SENSITIVE SO I CAN USE PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING. I JUST HAVE TO MOISTURIZE!

It started working…

Then I decided to use it on my forehead.

Yep, it started working there too…

Then I decided to use it everywhere all over my face

You guessed it…started working there too…

So, to take the experiment even further I stopped using any retinol product or any anti-wrinkle lotion. The only “firming” type lotion I have used in the past 2 months is this product.

And the results have completely surprised me with how well it has worked. My complexion has become much more smooth and those fine lines and wrinkles have gotten much smaller and less noticeable.

Why does this work so well?

  • CO-ENZYME Q10|| a compound that is naturally produced in your cells but tends to decrease as we age. This compound helps to generate energy in your cells so that they will produce collagen and elastin without this enzyme our skin is vulnerable to damage such as aging. The use of this compound can help reduce the signs of age such as crows feet or wrinkles around the eyes.
  • LOTUS EXTRACT || this one is a natural moisturizer that is good for all kinds of skin types. It can help the look and feel of dry rough skin while also helping to balance the oil content in skin. It is full of natural AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) which will help to exfoliate your skin and soothe redness. It does all this without making acne prone skin flare up and in fact it can help with your acne if that’s an issue you have.
  • L-CARNITINE || is an amino acid componunt for proteins that can help prevent wrinkle formation. It can also help with the overproduction of sebum which causes people to have oily skin. It is hygroscopic {a substance that absorbs moisture from the air}, making it able to hydrate the skin leaving it soft and smooth.

This product is full of ingredients that pack a hard punch and I can say that, for me, they worked. My skin has become more smooth and my fine lines and wrinkles have become much less noticeable. I’ve tried a lot of products and I love a lot of products but not many have surprised me like this one has. This has just plain worked on my face.

The texture is a cream gel-like formula that applies easily to your face…it basically just glides on. It dries quickly. This is extremely lightweight and I have used it under makeup many times.
