Summer is my favorite season. I love everything about it, especially when it means I get to wear my favorite shorts and sundresses. What are your favorite things about summer?
One way I am getting my skin ready for summer is by using NIVEA Skin Firming Body Lotion with Q10. I even took the Dare to Bare Challenge where I replaced my usual lotion with NIVEA for 2 weeks. Let me tell you, I noticed major improvement within ONE week of using this lotion. My skin looks smooth and toned, and it feels softer because of the exclusive Q10 Complex found only in NIVEA.
My big “Oh-my-goodness-I-can-actually-tell-this-lotion-is-working” moment happened on Day 7 of using NIVEA lotion. Are you ready for the story? I hope you don’t think I am sharing (TMI) Too Much Information. Here goes:
It was a cool spring day when I went to get a bikini wax, so I was wearing jeans. The girl (who gives me my waxes) told me to go ahead and disrobe from the waist down (like usual for a bikini wax) …and I immediately thought, “Oh no, I am so embarrassed because I am wearing jeans and my legs probably look so ashy from being in jeans all day.” I took off my jeans and looked down at my legs. To my complete surprise, my legs were not dry and ashy – in fact, they were the OPPOSITE. My legs were glowing! I knew it was only because I had been taking the Dare To Bare challenge and using the new lotion that my legs looked so good. I was relieved I did not need to feel embarrassed about my skin that day.
I have heard people say their skin was glowing before, but never actually had glowing skin on my legs. Later that night, I was getting ready for bed and casually mentioned to my husband that I had been using a new lotion and could not believe it was actually making a big difference in my skin. I said, “Today I noticed that my skin is actually glowing!” My husband (who is the biggest skeptic in the world about beauty products) looked down at my legs and said in a surprised voice, “Yeah, your legs are glowing a little bit!”
Confirmation. Proof. Even my husband the skeptic noticed. The NIVEA Skin Firming Body Lotion with Q10 really works! I am ready to show off my summer skin! NIVEA sent me a ShopBop.com gift card so I could pick out a new dress to wear after the Dare To Bare Challenge. I could not resist a pretty new maxi dress…and a strapless dress is definitely something I did not dare to wear until after the NIVEA challenge!
