In today’s blog entry, it is not just to share the birthday wish and celebrations, it is also to unveil the surprise birthday box Lazada sent over to me earlier this week as a lead-in to the mega birthday celebration on their site.

I received the Nivea x Lazada Surprise Box and oh boy, how ever did they know that I am a loyal user of Nivea’s product? Anyway, I got a HUGE box of Nivea beauty products and I cannot wait to dig in.

In the following, I will slowly introduce the products that were included in the surprise box and talk about them briefly.

12Okay, let us delve right into each product then:

First Item: Nivea Men Active Care Lip Balm SPF 15

What It Is (as told by the brand):

The innovative formula of NIVEA® Active Care with Hydra IQ contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and provides intensive moisturisation and protection to leave lips soft and healthy looking.  Benefits include: provides long-lasting moisture and care for your lips, effectively protects lips in all weather conditions, fragrance and shine-free, leaves no color on the lips, contains SPF 15 to protect against UVA and UVB rays

I say:
 A simple, sleek packaged lip balm stick with Cera Microcristallina, Castor Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Panthenol, Common Hop Extract, Bisabolol, and Glycerin amongst its ingredient list. I was using this lip balm in my high school years as this was the most accessible stick lip balm that was marketed towards men, was of a solid color, and has sun protection. I like that is is colorless and does not leave any over-the-top shine, nor feels sticky on my lips. Simple and easy to use

Second Item: Nivea Men Hydrating Water Burst Serum Moisturiser

What It Is (as told by the brand):

Hydrates and protects your skin against dryness & irritation all day without oily shine. Get 10 multi-effects in 1 use to combat dry skin, including: reduces dryness, smoothens skin, fights tightness, brightens dull skin, evens out skin tone, lightens fine lines, improves skin elasticity, refines pores, repairs damaged skin, reduces skin redness.

It features an innovative Water-Burst Technology, light-weight rapid penetrating formula, and forms a protective barrier

I say:
 Texture is more than light-weight! It feels like it gets absorbed into the skin as soon as you massage it in. As you gently massage in a circular motion, it instantly transforms into tiny little water droplets, refreshing and hydrating wherever your finger goes. While I have not used this long enough to review it, but I am happy with the refreshing feel it offers my skin waking it up.

Ingredient wise, I am happy with the Glycerin, Trehalose, Vitamin E, Sodium Hyaluronate, Bladderwrack Extract, Licorice Root Extract, Glyceryl Glucoside & Sea Silt

Third Item: Nivea Sun Water Sport Lotion SPF 50 PA+++

What It Is (as told by the brand):

Long-lasting sun protection against sun, UV rays, chlorine and sea salt. For body and face. It features a sea salt and chlorine damage protection, UVA1 /UVA2 /UVB protection, and is very water resistant

I say:
 The texture of this sunblock is slightly thicker than I would normally go for. It is pretty thick, but spreads okay. It does have that old school sunblock scent. Offering a full sun protection and recommended for watersports and outdoor activities, the emollient quality of this sun block does offer some protective effect. I do not go to the beach often nor engage in watersports or outdoorsy activities so I shall shelve this away for the time being.

Fourth Item: Nivea Men 48h Cool Powder Anti-Perspirant

What It Is (as told by the brand):
Gives you instant cooling feeling with long-lasting dryness all day.

Provides: instant cooling effect as well as long-lasting comfortable dryness – no more powder dust fly around. 48 hours effective anti-perspirant protection and Nivea® Men Care Complex. Skin tolerance dermatologically approved. Without alcohol

I say:
 I have to admit. I am a loyal user of the antiperspirant from Nivea with the Silver Protect Dynamic Power being my top choice, more than 5 years now! Therefore, I am equally excited to try the Cool Powder in Cooling Freshness and see how well it can win me over. As men, we do not usually sway from brands/products that we have been using for years so this is interesting to see if it will win me over.

Fifth Item: Nivea Men Oil Control Anti-Blackheads Face Wash

What It Is (as told by the brand):
Deeply cleanses and reduces blackheads, fighting 10 main problems of oily skin and blackheads. Skin compatibility dermatologically approved.

The multi-effective formulation with Carnitine, Salicylic Acid Technology and Mineral Magnesium helps to deeply cleanses and removes excess dirt and oil. It removes oily shine, prevents whiteheads, prevents blackheads, unclogs and refines pores. It also refreshes the skin, prevents dry and taut skin feeling, smoothens and evens out the skin, provides long-lasting oil control and controls excess sebum production.

I say:
I have never exactly tried Nivea’s range of cleansers before. Not even when I was studying back then. The only few times I did get to try it was when I was spending the night over at friend’s place who are using the cleansers. My recollection of Nivea’s cleansers are that it offers a squeaky clean feel after wash. But it is because of the squeaky clean feel that I have been avoiding them for a bit. Hence, when I received this Anti-Blackheads face wash, I immediately took out my simple, non-professional pH testing strip to test the pH level of it. Guess what? It reads at a range of pH 6~7. Slightly higher than I would prefer, but still okay — I am glad! After all, I am troubled with the ’10 main problems of oily skin and blackheads’ like what they identified.

Ingredient wise, there is the Bladderwrack Extract, Lactic Acid, Glycerin, Mannitol, and Sodium Salicylate. You have the standard cleansing agents too.

Sixth Item: Nivea Men Cool Kick Post Shave Balm
What It Is (as told by the brand):
For men who want soothing relief from shaving with a cool, invigorating kick. It is a light, fast absorbing formula with Mint Extracts, ISO-Magnesium, Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5. These helps by immediately cools and invigorates (skin), protect against skin irritations, and gently soothes, refreshes and conditions.
I say:
Hehe! Before anyone asks, I am going to put it out here: I have not used this shaving balm as a makeup primer. Hahahahaha! Besides the fact that the one being used as a primer is the Sensitive Skin Post Shave Balm, the formulation is different too!

However, knowing that there is a Nivea Men Post Shave Balm that is being regarded as the “world’s best primer“, I am now super excited to start patting this watery balm onto my shaved-skin (and head!) now. I did tested the balm on the back of my hand and the instant cooling effect is pretty prominent. I think, again, guys will really appreciate this.
