Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion

Nivea Q10 Firming Body LotionHi there! Today’s post is about a product I’ve been using for almost 3 weeks now: Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion.

This body lotion for normal skin promises intensive hydration and – after two weeks of use – noticeably firmer, smoother and more energised skin.

Does it work? Is it any good? Yes, absolutely!

Whilst this body lotion isn’t the most hydrating one out there, I like the formula. It’s light (it’s probably more suitable for the warmer seasons), it’s absorbed quickly and it’s not sticky at all. Very nice!

I’m also happy with how my skin looks and feels. Yes, my skin felt firmer after just a few days. I must say that I’m impressed!

Another thing I like about this body lotion is its fragrance. It smells… sunny and happy!

I will continue to use this body lotion and I will buy it again – no doubt. So yes, I’d recommend it! And I will also try the more nourishing version of this body lotion.

Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion is available as 250ml for £5.29 and 400ml for £6.79. I got my 250ml bottle for £2.55 (half price offer). So keep your eyes peeled for promotions to get the best deal!

Have you tried this body lotion? If so, I’d love to know what you think. And thanks for stopping by!

Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product which, unfortunately, has been discontinued. It’s this lovely Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter. I’ve seen different products from this brand in TK Maxx (about £3) and Home Bargains (99p to £1.99) recently, so if you fancy trying this body butter, you should swing by your local discount stores. But before you rush out, let me tell you what this product’s actually like. 🙂
Flower Pharm Wild Rose
I think it’s super easy to rub this body butter into my skin. The formula is lovely, the butter melts into my skin and it’s not too sticky. Well done, Flower Pharm! The fragrance is beautiful and charmingly old-fashioned – just like wild roses!

I checked the ingredients and this body butter appears to contain more quality ingredients than other comparable products. So instead of mineral oil and the likes, this body butter contains lots of coconut oil (it’s the second ingredient listed – after water), and it contains real rosa damascena (Damascus rose) flower water!

I’ve only used this body butter for a few days, but it seems to have made a difference already. My skin feels very soft and silky. And my semi-permanent eczema patch on my shin isn’t half as itchy as usual.

I think Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose Butter is absolutely fantastic, so I can’t understand why the entire line has been discontinued. Seriously, what were they thinking? I’ll definitely buy a few more tubs from my local Home Bargains store this weekend!
