NIVEA Wedding Season Skincare Giveaway!

One of my guilty pleasures is watching David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding and this show has been playing more often, no surprise since it is the beginning of wedding season. And while they show all the wonderful things Mr. Tutera does for the brides-to-be, we never see what the brides (and grooms) do to pamper themselves in preparation for their big day. That got me thinking on ways to pamper your skin and get it ready for your wedding without breaking your already challenged budget (since the entire budget goes to the actual wedding). One money saving tip is for you and your hubby-to-be to enjoy spa at home experiences to leave both you with soft, nourished, healthy, glowing and moisturized skin.

NIVEA has some great, budget-friendly skincare products that get your skin effectively (and affordably) beautiful. The perfect combination of his/her products for a skin care Bridal Boot Camp to make your wedding day skin ready for your “I do’s. They even have a daily giveaway –  Million Moments of Touch date night giveaways –!/NIVEAusa/app_168749696562045

For women:

New! NIVEA Kiss of Vitamin Swirl Lip – Its hydrating formula is enriched with Acai Berry and Wild Apple extracts, both rich in vitamins and antioxidants, to help maintain healthy looking, kissable lips.

New! NIVEA Touch of Renewal Lathering Body Scrub –with HYDRA IQ technology, this product delivers a unique balance of exfoliation and a rich cleansing, moisturizing lather.

New! NIVEA Extended Moisture Lotion – Keep your skin soft with this fast-absorbing lotion featuring HYDRA IQ technology and Provitamin B5. Extended Moisture Lotion provides up to 48 hours of relief to provide long lasting moisture in preparation for the wedding day.

For men:

New! NIVEA for Men 3-in-1 Relax Body Wash – A refreshing yet relaxing shower experience for a groom or groomsman to enjoy before all the excitement. This body wash with massaging micro-particles, a rich lather and relaxing scent, rinses off easily, to leave skin feeling clean, comfortable and healthy.

NEW! NIVEA for Men Maximum Hydration Moisturizer with HYDRA IQ and sea minerals – A technologically-advanced, intensive, moisturizer for Dry to Very Dry skin that provides more than 24 hours of moisture to the skin and leaves skin feeling great.

NIVEA sent me the above products to try and though I am not a bride or bridesmaid (this year), I am prepping my skin for the events I’m attending as a guest. My skin is touchably soft without being oily or greasy (A good test is if you can’t stop touching your skin) and my lips are fully hydrated and ready to be kissed. With the help of NIVEA, I and going to give one lucky reader to have this same feeling.

The day before a wedding, including my own, I spend a day at the spa getting a pedicure, manicure, massage and facial. It helps me to destress and prepare for a long day.

Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

All brides are unique and special in her own way, and her wedding makeup should reveal that. Wedding makeup is not as easy as it looks like it should be done in a proper way so that it does not affect the skin. I have noticed that lots of people who are using NIVEA, involved in the commercials of NIVEA and reviewing on it having a nice and beautiful skin.

Kathy May 11, 2012 at 2:47 am
