NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum - 14-Day Challenge Accepted!

Even before I had Kaitlin, I've to admit that I was never the kind to buy skincare products and then religiously use them. I did go through the phase of buying a few different products, but I never really stuck to them as I simply got lazy. They all just got dumped in the end.

However, after I gave birth, I paid more attention to my body and my skin. Normally, most moms wouldn't even have time to bother about this or were simply too tired from all the mother duties to even care. Well, I definitely was tired, but I did care about appearances. I sound so vain, but seriously how not to bother, when the rest of your peers are looking awesome, and you just look like you haven't slept in months with eye bags the size of Russia and skin so dry you start getting envious of your baby's soft skin!

Well, to be more precise, it was after I got used to life with Kaitlin around that I actually got down to doing something about it. Having a baby made such a huge difference in our lives, that even though I did care about my body and skin, my baby was still my number one priority. So when I started getting use to the routine of taking care of K, and I decided to forgo some precious sleep time, did I start to read about all the harmful effects of the sun's rays on my skin and how to better protect my face.

I never really bothered about the skin on my body, because hey, honestly dealing with the skincare regime on my face can already be quite a drag I couldn't find more time and effort to care about my body.

Luckily though, NIVEA recently sent over their NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF 25 PA++ , and this served as a great reminder that I better stop being so lazy and start protecting the skin on my body as well! Afterall prevention (e.g. dry skin)  is better than cure (e.g. peeling skin) and it's always good to start early!

There are 10 signs of dull and sun damaged skin:

and well my skin happens to dry and show signs of being rough, uneven and dull. Now seriously, looking through the list made me even more determined to do something about my skin. I don't want to age faster, and have people mistake me to be older than what I really am! I'm sure if I continue to not care about it I'll be checking off more the signs of sun damage in the list above, and worse, having to deal with pigmentation.

I'm excited to try out the NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum as it is the first ever body whitening serum with SPF 25 PA++, offering daily sun protection to prevent sun damage and skin darkening. If it really can protect your skin yet at the same time whiten it, how not to love?! It's like every woman's dream to have fair and smooth skin right? So here it goes, I'm going to start on the NIVEA 14-Day Challenge!

That's my skin on Day 1!

On application on my arms and legs, the serum was smooth and lightweight! Very easy to apply and it's great that there was none of that icky sticky feeling. That's usually a good indication that the product is absorbed efficiently into the skin. Also, the humidity in Singapore is already bad enough, so it's good that I don't have to deal with feeling sticky especially when I've got a long day ahead of me being out and about and doing lots of chasing after Kaitlin.

The NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF 25++ is priced affordably at SGD$9.55. Having used it for the first time I'm so far happy with it. I can't wait for Day 14 to see if I can achieve fairer, smoother and more radiant skin so stay tuned for an update in two weeks time. 

Meanwhile, here's your chance to win a $188 NIVEA Hamper weekly! Simply upload sun shots or shots of you outdoors on Instagram with the hashtags #NiveaSG #UVWhtSerum #Sunnyfun #Sunshine and the best photos will win.
