Drugstore Buy of the Week - Nivea Skin Firming & Smoothing Concentrated Serum

So, as it's product name indicates, Nivea Skin Firming + Smoothing Concentrated Serum
is a product to help with improvement with firmness and smoothness of trouble areas like tummy, thighs, buttocks, and lower legs. 

However, this is does NOT mean it will make your cellulite disappear! This is really important to point out, because I'm a big believer in sharing products with you that work - and telling you what you they can and cannot do and who they're best for.

I stumbled upon this serum after someone telling me about it recently, and thought it might be nice to road test before an upcoming beach vacation to the west coast recently. The product claims that with regular daily use, it can improve skin's firmness in about 10 days. It contains Coenzyme Q10, Natural Lotus extract, and L-Carnitine. 

The texture of the serum is slightly thick and a bit sticky out of the bottle, but smoothed onto my skin very easily. It abosorbed very quickly and left no residue or greasy/sticky feeling. It has a very prominent floral scent, which I happened to like, that dissipated after about a minute or so. (But I do think that an unscented version would be a nice addition to the line for those who don't want or can't have products with fragrance). 

I needed about approximately 1 pump per body area e.g. tummy, and found that this will last me about a month or so with continued daily use. The product hydrated and smoothed my body very nicely, but the proof would be the results after the first two weeks.... 

 What I noticed was very impressive. There was an improvement in the texture of the skin on my thighs/legs, but equally as impressive was the improvement in firmness as well. Any cellulite was "reduced" in appearance due to the smoothing effect, but I was still very pleased. Since the initial two weeks, I have continued to use Nivea Skin Firming + Smoothing Concentrated Serum to maintain the results. 

Bottom Line? Yes, you have to keep up a healthy diet and exercise to really continue the results, but for me, this is worthy of staying in my permanent body care collection - especially in the summer months! - RLB
