My Nivea Dare to Bare Challenge Results & a $150 Shopbop Giveaway

We were provided samples for purposes of review, but the opinions expressed are our own.

Recently, I had the pleasure of trying out NIVEA’s Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10. I have uber dry skin and I could certainly use a little tightening action considering I’m still working on that post baby weight loss, so I was eager to see if this lotion could deliver.

I was pleasantly surprised! My skin is super soft and looks visibly smoother. Is my cellulite all gone? Of course not. It’s not a miracle lotion. Haha! But it did improve my skin’s appearance enough for me to be more confident about rockin’ skin baring clothes and…gasp…swimsuits this summer! I picked out this little navy number from Shopbop to show off my results and I’m kind of in love. Navy’s the new black baby!

So, are you intrigued lovelies? Would you like to try out NIVEA’s Hydration Body Lotion with Q10 too? Well, we have some killer news for you…One lucky winner is going to win a challenge pack which consists of a bottle of this lotion PLUS a $150.00 Shopbop gift card, so you can pick something out to show off YOUR gorgeous skin!

    OOf I need that lotion! My preggers body is in serious dry mode. I would totally snap up a breezy dress that has a lot of room from shopbop! I have my eye on a few kaftan looking ones. That way I can live in it this summer and after baby comes!
