So this is the bag that they sent. I thought that when they said sun products they’d send me one tube of sunscreen or one new product. Nivea always has new sun products, so I thought it must be the new product for this summer. But to my surprise, a heavy bag arrived!
This is the whoooooole bag. It may look small here, but it’s like long bond paper size in real life.
And so here are the products that they sent! For one, they sent me three bottles of lotion.
This is their Nivea Sun Whitening Collagen Protect sunscreen. This smells like the typical Nivea creamy floral fragrance with a touch of sunscreen scent due to titanium dioxide. It feels lightweight, and as far as my day went using it, it stayed on the whole afternoon and it was true to its promise of not being sticky.
Amusingly, they now have a Nivea Sun Kids lotion! This is also SPF50, but it smells Nivea floral with a cool touch of aloe smell and a woody, star anise fragrance. This is so amusing to me because I was expecting that it’d be tuttu frutti scent or strawberry or banana scent. But it is noticeably much lighter than the other adult lotions. The other sunscreen lotions feel light in general and not sticky, but this feels even much lighter. The formulation is milky and a little bit runnier. I guess this is because kids can get very agitated by thicker lotion formulae. It says that it’s here for children’s delicate skin so I guess that’s also why it feels lighter.
This is another sunscreen lotion for adults. This is the protect and moisture variant. Relative to the whitening variant this doesn’t feel a lot different when it comes to the texture, the lightness of feel, and fragrance. Though I have yet to put this on a road test on drier patches of skin like on the knees and elbows, or perhaps try this when the weather is drier, so that I can determine how different this is relative to the whitening variant in terms of moisture.
Yet another good pick for kids is their Nivea Sun protect and light feel refreshing invisible sun mist. I was excited about this product because I think that it goes on so thinly that you can trust this for extreme sports and sweat-producing events for a comfortable, super lightweight coverage. This is so much lighter than the lotions, so there really is a difference between getting this or the lotions. I’m just not sure as to how well this may fare in airplanes given that it’s an aerosol can, but for day trips, I think this is a good pick. This is actually also be a good pick for daily usage because for some reason every summer feels so much hotter than the previous summer.
Last two products are their Nivea face fluid tubes! They sent me the whitening variant and the protect and moisture variant. I am excited to see how these will fare relative to the bottle of face fluid I’ve used up because I bought that bottle so long ago and they must’ve reformulated or something by now. These were still sealed so I didn’t want to use them yet hee hee hee.
And yes this is the card that they sent. I will be sure to experience the summer time to the fullest as I need these products a lot, even if I don’t really get to “summer” because I’m in school the whole time.
