Iconic Skincare: Nivea Crème

Marilyn Monroe and Cleopatra to name a few who are fan of moisturizer. My mom got her moisturizer from herbal like coconut and aloe vera (which used by Cleopatra). When I was young, I never like applying of that especially lotions and creams, until I reached mid 20’s.

I keep on searching and trying some skincare brands, which is trending, which is affordable and effective to expensive but does not works on me. Nivea Crème is on track and can be bought on other leading drugstore and supermarkets.

This is one of the products that lasted through the years. From packaging to sizes, it was one of our grandma’s stuff. It is the “wonder creme” of all the world. Agree?

Let’s see below the 1911 tin release up to today’s design.

Nivea Creme that known as moisturizer

 

A cold crème that cost for $4 only but do the wonder tricks. I been listed below how does it works and why everyone’s is continuously patronizing Nivea Crème.

  1. As a night cream– I’ve noticed that my skin suffers from dryness and I’m afraid to wear makeup due to blemishes and breakouts. Since Nivea known for moisturizer, I religiously applied it to my face, knees and elbows. I feel hydrated the following morning so every night before going to bed, I never forget to apply a small dab.
  2. As a lip balm-I’m a dry person, to extent that having chapped lips during summer and back when it is or am in cold areas. I used to swipe a thin layer of this crème and happy satisfied to its results.
  3. As a facial moisturizer. After having facial cleanse and toning, I used to dab a thin layer to my face. It is good than expensive moisturizers. For men, you can use it after shave.
  4. As a makeup remover– Nowadays, lip tint mattes are just around the corner, I have one and it is hard to remove, so I used cotton ball with a thin layer of this crème, and voila! It removes easily without irritating your lips. I also used this as a remover to my liquid eyeliner.

Review: Belo Baby Bar and Lotion

Belo products is more popular because of the person behind them.  Back in college, I was really  fan of their soaps, cleanser and lotion. Now almost 7 years past, we’ve seen their growing company with the new skincare line that suits for baby, the Belo Baby Soap and Lotion as well as the shampoo whose ScarletSnow models for the brand.

I used to buy expensive brands for my babies because of sensitivity of the skin, now I’m glad that Belo products that designed for babies is very affordable and formulated for the cutest babies in town! It is good to know that these products are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and perfect for all skin types.

Belo Baby Bar Soap-   love that it is very gentle to your baby and you can use for the whole family too. I love the powdery scent and the good side is, there are butter and sweet almond oil that best to nourish your kids’ skin. Of course, soap are perfect to match with lotion. Their Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion is just perfect . It is non greasy formula that lathers smoothly. It has also a powdery scent.

Aside from babies who could use the two, we could experience this formula. I tried it once and I love how it moisturize my skin especially when I am overstayed at aircon room. It is very relaxing and pampering. “ amoy –baby” is the exact word after you use these items.

It really impressive to have these Belo products after so many years where the world are full of existing brands and skincare line. I would update this blog once I have tried the Belo Baby Shampoo.

So who’s trying now these ScarletSnow skincare line?

White Nail Polish for Summer!

Colored nail a polish is in for summer, even neon colors are appropriate in summer! But nowadays, since white nail polish is in, my recent favorite summer color is white. I got a chance to try this Morgan Taylor nail polish which gives me fresh looking plus it works to wear at office. Not so loud, but it is perfect for hot-weather months! What do you think?

It’s my first time to try a nail polish that so loud to my skin color. This white as cotton balls is thick even I only coated twice. Only about to last for three to four days and the only problem I’ve noticed was the brush, very stiff and hard to apply.
