Nivea #ShareTheSensation Challenge Review- (NIVEA, Samsung Camera, Fandango GC) Giveaway!!

It is the winter here which means horribly dry skin! I know for one, my hands end up bleeding because of the cold weather and my skin becomes quite raw. Unfortunately, Hayley has taken after me and has the same problems with her skin. Luckily, just in the heart of the winter, I was asked to challenge myself with the NIVEA #SHARETHESENSATION Smooth Sensation Weekly Challenge.


What this challenge entails is for one week, I was to switch all of my lotions that I have used in the past, to strictly NIVEA. NIVEA is a company that realizes that having smooth, soft, and touchable skin makes one feel more confident and beautiful each day. Since I love and respect NIVEA so much, taking this challenge was a no-brainer! After Valentine’s Day passed, I realized that I needed to get rid of my horrible, dry, wintery skin and lather myself with NIVEA.


NIVEA Sensation Photo2Hayley and I decided to do the challenge together. While she was not using any lotions before (and she really should have been), it was quite  easy to incorporate NIVEA in her everyday life. Switching to NIVEA and their NIVEA Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion was also easy for me, as half the time in the past, I forgot to use any type of lotions. We began the challenge a week ago today with using only NIVEA Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion and in the past 7 days, I have been updating via twitter how the challenge is going.DSC09528

Since today is the last day of the challenge, I wanted to update you on how it is going. I have had unbelievable successes switching to NIVEA; so much so, that I will use NIVEA from this point forward as a fantastic lotion. I notice completely how my skin looks and feels 100 times better than it did before. The spots on my Hayley and I hands that were so dry, have now been replaced with glowing skin. I have been using my Samsung SMART camera to document just how great NIVEA truly is!

NIVEA Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion nourishes, revitalizes, and absorbs quickly. I know a lot of lotions leave you with a very greasy look after application. You will not encounter this problem with NIVEA though! It glides on beautifully and you only need a tiny bit to go a long way. It truly is the smoothest sensation in skin care and features great ingredients such as Shea Butter and Glycerin. It provides me with all day moisturization and leaves me with healthy skin. It also features a Hydra IQ technology, only found in NIVEA, that supports skin’s own hydration network to unleash deep, non-stop moisture that lasts more than 24 hours!

If you have not tried NIVEA before, I highly suggest you do! With the winter temperatures, you need a good lotion that will get you through the long days. NIVEA is that lotion and will get you beautiful, healthy skin in no time at all! I am so happy with the #SHARETHESENSATION Challenge! So much so, that I will continue on with this challenge for many months to come.

You can join in the fun for your chance to win a free 13.5 FL Oz. bottle of NIVEA Smooth Sensation Body Lotion. Using Hashtag #SHARETHESENSATION, you can re-tweet any of my posts or tweet why you want to try NIVEA with a photo of who you will share your touchable skin with.

    i grew up in a house with nothing but Nivea. my mom used it for everything! i used to use it just as much and it was even my favorite lotion to use after a summer sunburn. i have lots of memories of nivea!

  2. Emily Wells says

    I buy it occasionally. My great grandmother used to use their hand cream when I was little. I have great memories of her unscrewing the lid to her tub of cream and smoothing it into her hands. :)

  3. says

    I am sure I tried their product once or twice with a friend but I don’t think I have ever purchased one of their products. Will have to check out the shelves the next time I am at the store. Your hand cream model Little Miss Haley has convinced me how easy it is to use the Nivea products for softer skin.

  4. Sue Hull says

    No I’ve never tried their lotion but by the sound of it I’d like to. I have really dry skin in the winter.Thank you :)

  5. says

    I have tried Nivea, but not in years – I have no idea why I strayed, because I always loved it. I think a bottle of Nivea on my desk would be perfect for these dry months, especially working with paper so much!

  6. Katy M says

    I have only ever tried that little tin of Nivea before, and always liked it as a had cream or lip balm. I’ll have to try it again!


  7. Jayme Hennessy says

    I actually tried Nivea when my daughter was a baby. It was recommended for her to help combat some of her dry skin problems.

  8. Jamie Brigham says

    I’ve tried all sorts of Nivea and my favorite body wash is the Nivea Touch of serenity. It’s the only one I use.

  9. Kellie says

    We haven’t tried the Nivea lotions yet, but we recently purchased some of their lip balms. I, too, get really dry skin on my hands in the winter. Couple that with constant hand washing and you get painful cracked skin. Ouch!

  10. Wild Orchid says

    I have tried their hand cream and love it!
