Are you getting ready for wedding season?
This is one product review that I was thrilled to get my hands on. The latest giveaway from the team over at NIVEA is for the his & hers kits to get your skin wedding ready. Time for the Bridal Boot Camp!

Trying it all out
This is the first summer in a long time where I am looking forward to showing a little skin. It must be I’m getting used to my new thinner self, but it’s quite the adjustment to look at skirts and not cringe.
Taking advantage of the soft skin results this NIVEA kit offers makes it really easy!
I love the Renewal Lathering Body Scrub – it’s like a perfect combination of their super smooth body wash and just a touch of my favorite homemade sugar scrub. Not abrasive or too rough like some exfoliating washes can be, this made me feel clean and soft. Finishing with the Extended Moisture Lotion was a treat. This ways its for day to very dry skin, which I never put myself in that category, but whoa does this stuff smooth and hydrate! Ever since I tried their products with HYDRA IQ, it makes any other lotion feel like mess. There’s just something about the way the lotion sinks in that I still feel smooth the next day. 48 hours is true… this lasts!
I thought dragging my husband into helping me test this out would be a tough sell. I did have to twist his arm a little and once he tried it, it was a hit. The 3-in-1 Relax Body Wash left him feeling clean and really soft – of course I had to test – and he loves the moisturizer. Getting him to use any moisture for skin care is tough, but I’m thinking it’s just a habit he hasn’t had for long, and the wrong moisturizer makes you not want to use it. The NIVEA for MEN Maximum Hydration Moisturizer with HYDRA IQ is a different story and he let me know he has the same experience I do with their lotions. They go on smooth with no residue ever, and keep you soft for a long time.
My new morning routine addition is swiping on NIVEA Kiss of Vitamin Swirl Lip as I leave my bathroom. I am a bit biased on this one though. I have the NIVEA Kiss lip balms at my computer – home and office, and in my purse. This one is light and the mild berry scent is lovely.
