NIVEA #DareToBare Challenge + Giveaway (Lotion and $150 ShopBop Gift Certificate)

NIVEA #DareToBare Challenge + Giveaway (Lotion and $150 ShopBop Gift Certificate)

For the past two weeks or so I have taken part in the NIVEA Dare to Bare (#DareToBare) challenge. The rules of the challenge were easy enough: participants were instructed to simply replace their usual daily lotion with NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10 for two weeks. Since I love trying new products and the timing is perfect with bikini season upon us, I was thrilled to sign on!

NIVEA #DareToBare Challenge + Giveaway (Lotion and $150 ShopBop Gift Certificate)

So what makes NIVEA Skin Firming Body Lotion special? According to NIVEA:

NIVEA Skin Firming Body Lotion, formulated with Co-Enzyme Q10 Complex and Hydra-IQ, is proven to provide firmer more toned skin within two weeks.

  • firmer, more toned skin
  • more resilient skin
  • softer, smoother skin texture
  • 24 hour moisturization

So let’s get to it. What do I think about this lotion and the appearance of my skin after two weeks of using NIVEA Skin Firming Body Lotion?

I became a fan of this body lotion after the first use. The scent is pleasant and light, the lotion is non-greasy and absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth all day. And after the two-week trial my skin looks visibly smoother and more toned.
