#BOBBlogChallenge: Skin Care Saviours

Dear diary,

For the first topic of the Best Of Beauty Challenge we have to write about our Skin Care Saviours.

I hate to be repeating myself over and over again but here goes my most loved skin care product: the Nivea in shower body lotion with almond oil for dry skin.

It really makes the world of difference. I started using this day and night but after a few weeks I noticed my skin was getting sticky from using it so often. I then went to apply it once a day and I also reduced the amount as you only need the tiniest bit. At first I thought you needed to apply a lot of product as you are going to rinse it off afterwards and that seemed like it wouldn't be hydrating enough but I was wrong. It really sinks into the skin and stays there after the final rinse.

What I really love about this product is the fact that it's so easy and quick to apply, you don't have to wait until it dries as you just jump out of the shower and pat dry your skin with your towel like you'd normally do. Makes getting dressed a lot easier this way: no sticky residue on your skin. You can hop out the door in no time at all. I'm really a bed person so I like to stay in for as long as possible. This lotion gives me a couple more minutes of Zzzzzzzzzzz.

What about you? Are you a morning person or, like me, you have a hard time getting out of bed?

Thanks to Samantha Johnson aka All the Buzz for setting up theses series of beauty related posts.

See y'all next thursday for the second post,


  1. This sounds good Eli, is it suitable for someone with sensitive skin? I'm not a morning person either, need lots of coffee and I like using nice scented shower gels like Philosophy in the shower to help me wake up properly :-)

    1. Sorry B, I really don't know but as it is not an expensive product you could give it a try. I think I paid 4.75€. I'm not a coffee person, it doesn't agree with my stomach but I drink loads and loads of tea. Thanks for stopping by ;)

    2. Thanks Eli. It's very cheap so once I've used up my La Roche-Posay Lipikar shower gel I'll try it out and let you know how I get on :-)

    3. Let me know if it suits your sensitive skin, I'm curious. XO

  2. I'm totally not a morning person either...I like convenience! Great post! I'm taking part in the challenge too! :) x


  3. Thanks for stopping by Catherine M, I read all posts this morning as I'm in bed with a very bad cold. I really liked all the posts and I've taken notes for my next skincare shopping list. See u next week!
