My 14-day Intensive Skin Brightening Challenge with NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum

Women in general like to hear compliments from people about their skin. That is why we apply all types of creams, serums and lotions just to achieve a whiter and fairer skin complexion. To put it simply, if we look good, we feel good too.


Not too long ago, I shared with you a new product from NIVEA, which is the NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF 25 PA++. For the last two weeks, I’ve been experimenting with the serum to achieve a visibly fairer, smoother and more radiant skin. In this post, I’m going to share with you the results.

I work in an office environment, fully air-conditioned, and I rarely go out for lunch because my office canteen is just conveniently located in the same building. By the time I finish my work, the sun has gone. So, I’ve always thought that I have the privilege to skip the UV protection because I don’t go directly under the sun.

But I was wrong.

When I stepped into my 30s, I started to see a plethora of skin problems like dullness and pigmentations on my skin due to sun damage and lack of body UV protection. The first damage could have started since my teenage years, and now all the problems are surfacing one by one.

Fortunately, it’s still not too late to “reverse” these effects by repairing and restoring accumulated sun-damaged skin cells with the new NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF 25 PA++. This serum is enriched with natural Vitamin C to penetrate deeply into our skin to repair skin cells, and lighten dull and dark skin.

Best thing about it: Lightweight and no-sticky feel!

Nivea 3

This very FIRST body whitening and repair serum is truly unique. I use it twice a day – every morning after I shower and at night before I go to bed. It is very lightweight, easy to spread, absorbs quickly and most importantly, it doesn’t leave a sticky after-feel. Its mild fruity scent is very invigorating too. I like the feel of my fresh and smooth skin every time I use it.


Given the potency of this serum, containing 95% Pure Vitamin C, nature extracts and UV filters, it’s not surprising to see visible results as soon as 14 days after using it. Of course I’m not talking about significant improvement like turning into fairy white skin instantly, but I’m seeing noticeable improvements.

And the results …

First of all, the serum hydrates my skin. On Day 1, my skin was dry. I’ve been buttering the serum twice a day, and it delivers great improvements to keep my skin hydrated and smooth. The patchy dryness has improved significantly after 14 days.

Secondly, I noticed moderate improvement on radiance. Upon application, I feel that my skin is silky smooth with a glossy sheen, and thus adds to its radiance instantly.

Lastly, I observed slight improvement on fairness. Pigmentations, however, may take longer time to lighten. So, I’ll continue to use this serum and I’m hopeful that it will help to lighten my pigmentations too.

All in all, I’m pleased to have made an effort to protect my body against the harmful UV rays, repair and restore my accumulated sun-damaged skin cells to bring out its radiance. All it takes is just ONE MINUTE a day to apply the serum twice a day on my skin.


As always, you’ve got to experience it for yourself to see if this serum works for you. So, if you’re searching for a whitening serum with UV protection that is non-greasy, reasonably-priced and effective, then go grab yourself a tube of NIVEA Body UV Whitening Serum with SPF 25 PA++.

And don’t forget that this serum has SPF 25 PA++, that’s good enough protection for everyday use. I highly recommend this product to you.

Tip: If you’re going to the beach, I still recommend applying water-resistant sun block on top of this serum.

Oh, one last thing!

I just bought my first tube today, hopefully it works for me. I like the lightness and non-sticky feel of this serum too.

Does anyone know if/when this product will be available in the US? I’m very fair, don’t tan, just burn, peel, & back to pale, so I’d LOVE to try it!
