Thanks again to everyone who entered. Stay tuned for my results post using these products later this week!

Disclaimer: The products discussed in this post were provided for me through NIVEA’S PR Firm. These are my honest opinions expressed in this post.

Summer is here and it has been ridiculously hot and humid here in New York City. As you all know, as the seasons change so should your skin care products. What worked well for me in the winter and early spring is just too heavy for me to continue using now in the summer. So as an influencer for NIVEA I have had the opportunity to try various products and these have made it into my summer skin care rotation.


NIVEA Lip Butter in Rasperry Rosè Kiss

NIVEA Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm with SPF

NIVEA Touch of Renewal Exfoliating Body Scrub

NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10

What I love about the lip products is how soft and smooth my lips feel. I am very PICKY when it comes to lip balm for my lips. I have this terrible fear of having extremely dry lips and then they crack and start bleeding. I do not want that to ever happen. I have been having success with the Kiss of Moisture lip balm and raspberry lip butter listed above. My lips are smooth and I do not have to reapply as often as I was with other products.

If you haven’t checked out my review of the Skin Firming Hydration Lotion from my challenge a few weeks ago, click here. What I love most about this lotion is not only the skin firming qualities, but also the fact that it is light weight. You do not want a heavy lotion for the summer because you will just sweat it all away. This product is good for dry skin because it hydrates all skin types.

Lastly I love the exfoliating body scrub as well because it keeps my skin moisturized and smooth. It definitely renews my body by getting rid of the dead skin cells that leave your skin looking dull and dry.

So these products will be in HEAVY rotation for the summer. I am also giving away these products to one of my lucky readers! So you will get a Goody Bag of NIVEA products. All you have to do is follow the rules below.

Hey loves! I have an awesome giveaway for you guys. You can win the following beauty products just in time for spring!


Laura Geller Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner-“intensely hued, luxe liners that won’t fade or smudge and are oh-so-easy to use. Leave it to makeup pro and beauty personality Laura Geller to create a super smooth formulation that’s brimming with long-wearing, high impact pigments for goof-proof, on-the-go application designed to deliver professional results at home. Unlike other gel liners that tend to dry out in the pot, Inkwell stays soft, moist and creamy, thanks to a special gel silicon resin that also gives the formula its luxurious feel and crease-free finish.”


Laura Geller Brow Sculpting Marker-“Thick or thin…sparse or full; perfectly groomed eye brows are an essential make-up must do when creating a balanced, proportionate and polished look. According to make-up artist and entrepreneur, Laura Geller, everyone looks better when their eyebrows are clearly defined. Not only do brows provide a framework for the eyes, they give the entire face a sense of structure.”

Laura Geller Color Correcting Balance and Brighten– “This extraordinary formula is the result of an exclusive, labor intensive process developed and produced in Italy. The process begins with a multi-color infused liquid that becomes a rich creamy powder after baking 24 hours in a terracotta pan. Consequently, the powder delivers more than any ordinary powder… exceptional luminosity and color.”
