REVIEW: Nivea Happy Time Body Lotion

29 May

I am always on the hunt for great bargains, so guess what I felt when I saw a buy1 take1 of Nivea Happy Time Body Lotion while we were at Mercury Drug. I saw this and decided to get it. I asked one of the guards if they have more of this because I wanted to get more. Unfortunately, it was the last piece.

REVIEW: Gluta-C Intense Whitening Original Body Lotion Spf 25

15 May

My 4th Sample Room purchase is another product from Gluta-C. It is the Gluta-C Intense Whitening Original Body Lotion Spf 25. I thought of getting together with the soap. I already wrote a review on the Gluta C soap which you can view here.

I love using lotions since I was a kid. I always see my Dad (you read that right! it’s my dad!) slathering lotion after every bath heal his dry skin and prevent it from coming back. Mom would find it sticky to use lotions all the time but she uses it too – once in a while.

So there, I got this addiction for lotions (a.k.a. moisturizers) from Dad.

When I saw that there was a full size sample in Sample Room, I got it too! I have been meaning to try this one but since I have a collection of lotions already, hubby did not want to buy one for me.

Let’s get it on with the review.

The 125ml arrived all sealed and bubble wrapped. I love receiving sealed products because I won’t have any doubts about it and it prevents spillage too!

REVIEW:AVON SSS Glutathione Lotion with Marula / April BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge

30 Apr

Our family went out for a swim on a lazy Thursday and though I religiously applied my Nivea SUN Protect and Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist every two hours, I still had a slight bit of tan.

Thankfully, I remembered I have something in my April BDJ Box that can help me. It is the AVON SSS Glutathione Lotion with Marula. 

Product Description

Skin looks and feels renewed and rejuvenated in just 12 hours! Infused with Glutathione, a powerful anti-oxidant, this leaves skin radiantly glowing and more youthful looking. It is a lightweight moisturizer that improves skin’s clarity and makes skin look whiter immediately after the first application. Formulated to help decelerate melanin production and gives dark skin with a fairer skin tone.

Dermatologically tested. 

Direction: Use twice daily. Smooth all over body.

I have been introduced to AVON SSS lotions when I was a kid. My aunts all raved about it, saying that it was effective and has a nice smell. Not so long ago, I have tried a variety of AVON SSS lotions. I don’t apply it as often as I should because I am such a sucker for moisturizers that I end up using what I want at the moment. Oh, SSS stands for Skin-So-Soft, in case you didn’t know.

I was happy to receive a full size of this lotion and would really finish this. For 250ml of product, you only pay 350php or less if you get it from an Avon lady. Avon offers discounts almost monthly!

This was the first lotion I grabbed when we arrived home after the swim. I placed it in the fridge so I can enjoy it more when it is chilled. It served as my after-sun(burnt skin) moisturizer.

The consistency of this lotion wasn’t different with any Avon SSS Lotions I’ve tried. It has this rich, almost-thick consistency but is not heavy on the skin. It is great for every day use because of its lightweight, moisturizing formula. What makes this stand out is that it is infused with Glutathione, a powerful anti-oxidant, that helps control and decelerate melanin production. Also enriched with Marula, Africa’s “miracle oil”,  it deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin.

It helps renew skin dullness and helps lighten dark spots brought about by sun exposure and skin aging. It solves the dryness of my skin and keeps it that way. It is very effective. In just a few days of using this, I noticed that there is visible improvement on my skin’s texture, tone and hydration. It kept my skin looking and feeling healthy, nourished and glowing.

It is also very easy to apply but takes a bit of time to dry up and be absorbed by the skin. I also love the scent that it has which stays for a while. I use this twice a day, morning and night, after I take a shower.

What I Love:

(+) It is from a trusted brand, Avon.

(+) It is infused with Glutathione and Marula that helps control melanin production.

(+) It makes skin soft and smooth.

(+) It makes skin moisturized and hydrated.

(+) It keeps it healthy looking and glowing.

(+) It makes my skin more even-toned.

(+) It works fast. Visible improvement can be seen in just a few days usage.

(+) It has a nice scent to it.

(+) It is lightweight and very easy to apply.

(+) Affordable.

What I wish:

(-) It is quickly absorbed by the skin.

(-) It has SPF.

(-) It is available in leading department stores and not only thru Avon ladies.

I made a day chart wherein I recorded my skin observations daily for 7 days.

284374_10152756367760234_134906316_n

Day 1 – Tanned skin it is! Hello to uneven skin tone, too. But it kept my skin from getting dry. 

Day 2 – There was not much change on my skin color but the skin tone has somewhat came even-toned. Soft skin can be felt.  

Day 3 – Slight change can be seen on my skin. My skin felt smoother and softer.

Day 4 – My skin has improved a lot from Day 1. I can also see a gradual decrease in the tan. It made my skin silkier, softer and smoother.

Day 5 – The skin on my whole body seemed to feel renewed and revitalized with daily use.

Day 6 – Hydrated, healthy, glowing skin I can see you now…

Day 7 – Great improvement on my skin! It has kept my skin moisturized, healthy and even-toned. YAY! 

I believe with continued use, it will help my skin achieve its most natural fairness. It will prevent getting sun spots on my skin and keep it healthy and moisturized.  

OVERALL: I highly recommend this product to anyone who wanted to see an improvement on their skin’s texture, tone, smoothness and overall health in a few days time.

On AHAVA Essential Day Moisturizer:
Texture: 4/5
Smell: 4/5
Absorption: 5/5
Hydration: 5/5
Overall Experience: 4/5
I have oily, sensitive skin yet I still think this works great on me. I only needed to use a pea-sized amount of this product. It has a semi-thick texture that is perfect for those with dry skin. But unbelievably, it absorbs quickly and does not feel heavy at all. It also gives great hydration to my skin. It did not end up greasy and left skin moisturized all day. With all this, I think it is priced too much, given that it only moisturizes. I guess this would be better if it has more benefits and sun protection.
On Moringa-O2 Malunggay Herbal Moisturizing Lotion:
Texture: 4/5
Smell: 4/5
Moisture: 5/5
Smoothness of Skin (post usage): 5/5
Overall Experience: 5/5
I take Moringa caps as supplements because of the health benefits it gives and it helps increase my milk supply (I still breastfeed my 2year old daughter). Seeing that there is a lotion made from it, I know I have to give it a try. Moringa-O2 is such an amazing product. It has a great texture – not too thick and not too watery. It does not feel greasy at all. It also has a refreshing scent to it which smells like green tea. I love lathering it on after bath because it keeps my skin hydrated, moisturized, soft and smooth for a long time! I use this at night though since I am not sure of the sun protection it gives. I am definitely going to buy one when my sample runs out. This is such a steal for its price!!!
