It has always been my dream to have very fair skin; I think we’ve established that fact for now. Haha, I have spent so much on whitening skincare products for my skin, you will not imagine. Whenever there is a new whitening product in town, I will always be the first few to try them out. & some of it really does work because my face is probably about 1-1.5 shade fairer than the rest of my body. Well, & also because I apply sunscreen every morning to my face and I’ve neglected the rest of my body.
It also does not help when I exposed myself to hours under the sun on my diving trips and I go for about 2 diving trips a year! & I am not sure how true is this but why does it seem like it is easier to get tan when you are swimming than compared to like daily walking?
Fashion trends come and go but owning beautiful skin is timeless and will never go out of style!
& in our humid climate, I find myself dressing up in outfits that show my skin like in the above picture & I hate how my legs look darker than my torso and face.
Poor skin condition, be it on the face or the body, can easily add years to one’s appearance. Possessing beautiful skin gives us that additional confidence booster in everything we wear. & I really do not wish to limit my choice of apparels because of my skin’s appearance.
That’s why NIVEA has upgraded its popular whitening body moisturisers to boast brightening and firming properties so that we may achieve flawless skin – the fashion accessory that’s always in season.
This is the new NIVEA Extra White Firming Body Serum.
NIVEA’s new & improved formula helps us get fairer & firmer skin with 95% purity of Vitamin C and Coenzyme Q10. & I’ve been a skincare addict long enough to know that these two ingredients are really effective in whitening & firming!
I use this during the day because it contains SPF 33 as well as UVA1/UVA2/UVB to protect my skin from the sun’s damaging rays and further prevent my arms and legs from getting darker.

Besides the addition of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin C, the SPF amount has also increased for the new product!
With 95% Vitamin C, the new product contains the highest concentration of Vitamin C amongst NIVEA’s body care range.
Vitamin C can help protect the skin against sun damage and they may actually reverse some of the discoloration and wrinkles. These antioxidants work by speeding up the skin's natural repair systems and by directly inhibiting further damage.
With regular use, skin becomes noticeably fairer and firmer skin in 14 days. I usually apply it on places that I want to firm up as well as shield from the sun’s harmful rays. So my arms, tummy & legs are where I will focus on. Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful skin-owned coenzyme that ensures energy supply for skin cell helps in anti-wrinkling, anti-oxidation and boosting cell energy to give firmer skin. *claps*
I also really enjoy how watery the product is and it does not leave a sticky feeling after so I can put on my clothes immediately and not have that annoying “fabric-clinging-onto-skin” feeling.
& for night time, I will use the Night White Firming Body Serum for rejuvenation while I sleep because our skin actually repairs itself most effectively during the night when we are asleep.
This light weight night serum promises to firm and brighten skin while keeping it hydrated. Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory, wound healing and anti-ageing properties. Coenzyme Q10 has anti-oxidant properties that help to firm skin and refine skin texture while Vitamin C helps to repair and brighten skin.

I particularly appreciate the fact that my skin is getting repaired & nourished with the product while I’m snoozing away.
& lastly, here is another product that is suitable for day time usage – NIVEA Instant White Firming Body Serum.
This is suitable for those who want to achieve brighter skin right away as an additional ingredient, Titanium Dioxide, commonly found in BB Creams, acts as micro light reflectors to immediately give you glowing skin. Think of these as tiny mirrors to make skin “light up” with radiance right where you want it! It reflects visible light while instantly brightening your skin.
& if you notice, I am recommending NIVEA’s whitening serums instead of lotions because serums have higher concentration of active ingredients and it gives better product efficiency. So in a shorter time, the results will be more promising. Noticeably fairer & firmer skin in 14 days with religious use!
I am more confident now with my skin’s appearance after using the NIVEA Extra White Firming Body Serum daily to correct & protect my skin. I went for wedding gown hunting just last week & the consultants commented that my skin was really fair and she even asked me to share tips on how I achieved such even skin tone. Now I have one less thing to worry about for my big day!
