Product Review: Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream

This gallery contains 6 photos.

Most of you may be unaware that I am currently under medication. And the effects of this medication includes severe dryness to the extent of scaling of skin in some areas. Honestly, my skin condition frustrates me a LOT but I still have to program my mind not to think about it too much because stress prolongs my sickness and worsens my skin condition.

A few months ago, this skin dryness is only present on my body, arms and legs, but now my face has started to experience scaling due to severe dryness. I can’t help but to worry especially that I am a working mom that I have my routine of going out for work and be exposed to people. I keep on researching on what I could do about this condition and the last one I’ve read is to put on moisturizers to prevent my skin from drying. Honestly, I used to hate moisturizers and think it’s only for “old” people. (Or am I really old now? Haha!) But I think right now, this is what I REALLY need.

I went to a drugstore in the mall earlier and looked for a moisturizer that I could use on face at an affordable price but a trusted brand for years. I found Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturizing Cream (Face, Body and Hands). I picked a bigger container, 200ml, which costs around Php200+ (Sorry, I have short term memory loss! Haha!). In addition, the label also shows it has Jojoba oil and Vitamin E. (I’m not yet familiar with the benefits of Jojoba oil, but I’ll definitely search for it later.) It has a screw-type cap container and sealed with foil inside (Make sure it’s not tampered and check it before buying).

Ingredients:

Aqua, Glycerin, Paraffinum Liquidum, Myristyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Stearic Acid, Myristyl Myristate, Cera Microcristallina, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Simmomdsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lanolin Alcohol (Eucerit), Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Dimethicone, Sodium Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum

So, if you are allergic to any of these ingredients, DO NOT BUY/USE. But if you are not familiar to which ingredient you are allergic with, try applying in a small part and observe.

The first striking feature of this moisturizing cream is being light textured. It’s not thick and not watery. It’s just on a right consistency. It doesn’t leave too much scent behind. I mean, it smells good but not over powering.

I tried applying it on my face generously, allowed my skin to absorb it and let it dry for a few minutes. It feels very light on skin without the sticky feeling. For the first try, I can say that this definitely helps on the dry patches on my face from my medication. It’s really good for moisturizing dry spots and it’s definitely soft when applied on rough patches on your skin.

That’s all for now, I’ll get back to you on the following weeks for the progress with this moisturizer. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! Continue reading

How to Use Chopsticks

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Using chopsticks can be very tricky and it requires a LOT of practice…and PATIENCE. Worry no more! Here’s a simple guide on how to use chopsticks…

What you’ll need:

pair of chopsticks
your dominant hand
food for practice (I used uncooked popcorns in my demo.)

Steps:

Hold one of the chopsticks like a pen using your index finger, middle finger and thumb. This is the part that moves to pick up food. Actually, the index and middle finger are the ones that moves more while the thumb supports them.

Insert the other chopsticks underneath, resting on the ring finger. This should be the immovable part.

Pick up food by clipping them in between. Remember, don’t put pressure on it.

Don’t be disappointed if it doesn’t work the first time. Patience is a virtue. 🙂 And one more, you can ALWAYS ask for spoon and fork if you’re not comfortable with it.
