NIVEA Unveils New Packaging & Offers Consumers 25% More

Celebrity stylist, Phillip Bloch was on hand to co-host a wonderful event with NIVEA where they revealed new packaging which offers consumers 25% more products and a new logo using the brand’s classic blue tin as inspiration. The event featured three product counters, each filled with different NIVEA Body products for guests to try.

The new packaging, designed by Yves Behar, still embodies NIVEA’s traditional brand values, as Behar drew on NIVEA’s iconic blue crème tin for its new logo. The new packaging also features a more rounded silhouette and a reduction in the blue and white colors. The end result is a cleaner that celebrates the history of this timeless brand.

As stated above, Phillip Bloch was on hand to speak on the new design and the benefits. Check out video of him speaking at the event below:

If you have never experienced this, I urge you to do so at least once. Thanks again to the wonderful people at NIVEA for giving me the opportunity to experience the ball drop in Times Square.

NIVEA Celebrates National PDA Day in NYC

Emmy Award winning talk show host, Wendy Williams, along with your favorite romantic celebrity couple, Bill & Guiliana Rancic and Grammy Award winning R & B Artist, Ne-Yo, was on hand to help Nivea celebrate National PDA Day. Highlighting their Millions Moments of Touch Movement, Nivea hopes to bring us closer together back to the days of Public Displays of Affection which seems to have been replaced with Personal Digital Assistance. We have replaced real kisses and hugs with text emoticons and we pay more attention to our phones than our loved ones. As part of the celebration, NIVEA will host a series of events in New York, Los Angeles and nine other cities across the country to encourage couples to get out in the open and show their affection for one another. With National PDA Day, Nivea hopes to bring back to love.

Check out video of the adorably cute couple below talking to Wendy about their PDA and Nivea Products


Bill & Guiliana Rancic at Nivea PDA Day – Glasgow Skinner from Glasgow Skinner on Vimeo.
“It is brilliant of NIVEA to celebrate National PDA Day,” said Williams. “It’s a shame that we as a society have gotten so engrossed in electronics that we have forgotten common decency and the simplicities of life. The art of old-fashioned talking and touching is lost. Hopefully today will remind us how wonderful PDA is.”

The Rancic’s agree, “Between work, travel and preparing for our new baby – we’re often challenged with getting out and having time for just us. But, we always try to make time to go on little dates at least once or twice a month – especially in the summer. We love that NIVEA is helping couples everywhere rekindle and reconnect through PDA.”

The open-to-the-public event featured several fun and interactive activities for all to enjoy (and the public did) and bring us closer together. Everyone who attended were treated to coffee and a cuddle, win free prizes, products and a surprise performance by Ne-Yo. Throughout the event, attendees spun the Nivea wheel to win not one but two full size products

And of course a surprise, three song performance by Ne-Yo, who along with Wendy, Bill and Guiliana had to hop on a plane to celebrate National PDA Day in Los Angeles

Those cities include: Columbus, OH; Chicago, IL; Seattle WA; Austin, TX; Ft. Lauderdale, FL; Atlanta, GA; Phoenix, AZ; San Francisco, CA and Oklahoma City, OK.

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 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.

New! Nivea Hydra IQ Technology

Nivea, known for keeping our bodies moisturized for the past century (they celebrate 100 years this year), has launched a range of products containing their new Hydra IQ Technology, a new exclusive patented moisturizing technology that works to balance the skin’s moisture level. Hydra IQ supports the skin’s hydration system and the transfer of moisture throughout the skin. Promoting water transfer throughout the moisture network results in superior, longer-lasting skin hydration.

The new Hydra IQ Technology skincare range includes:

NEW! NIVEA Express Hydration Body Lotion, $8.99 (SRP) for 13.5 oz
NEW! NIVEA Express Hydration Freshening Gel, $7.99 (SRP) for 13.5 oz
NEW! NIVEA Touch of Cashmere Body Wash, $5.99 (SRP) for 16.9 fl oz
NEW! NIVEA Touch of Serenity Body Wash, $5.99 (SRP) for 16.9 fl oz
NIVEA HYDRA IQ technology will also be available in the existing NIVEA Smooth Sensation, Essentially Enriched, and Happy Sensation Body Lotions and NIVEA Body Washes
So what are the benefits of this new technological moisturizing wonder? Hydra IQ intelligently delivers moisture where it is needed, resulting in smoother, silkier and softer skin.

Benefits include:

Uniquely moisturizing from above AND within the skin
Unleashing long-lasting moisture that lasts more than 24 hours
Smoothing and softening skin with daily use

I’m a sucker for body wash and I believe a have at least one bottle of Nivea left in my vast collection, so I’m really excited about the addition moisture. I’ve been using the Express Hydration Freshening Gel with vigor and I find myself getting dressed a little bit faster than usual (during colder months, my skin is drier, so I have to use a heavier body moisturizer and I always have to take an extra few minutes for my body cream to completely absorb into my skin before I get dressed).

The NIVEA Express Hydration Freshening Gel is also a cooling gel, providing freshness as well as all day moisturization, thanks to the Cooling Mint Extract. As the weather gets hotter (hopefully), this will be a staple to my post shower routine. Get to know the other Nivea Hydra IQ products below, all of which are available in stores now.


Product-n-Press LIVE™returned for its 3rd season to showcase more than thirty top brands from global powerhouses to unique and independent boutique finds including Accessories, Beauty, Home, Food & Beverage, Gadgets, Babies, Pets, etc,

Participating brands included Alberto Luzzi Designs, Alpha Dog, American Humane Film & TV Unit – No Animals Were Harmed, Black & White Cookie Company, Bissell, Bustelo, Buzzy, Broadway Cares, Daffy’s, Divine Chocolate, DK Publishing, Ford, Gotham Wines, HoMedics, Juvederm, Kolache Mama, Maidenform, Maison Le Grand, Moroccan Oil, MPHC Fitness, Muze, National Basketball Association (NBA), Nivea, Pacimals, Passion Growers, Pergamino, Prudence Designs, Puppy Hugger, Rosetta Stone, Scentsy, Trixie + Peanut, Vioguard, Violight and VoiceQuilt.

The good news, I did get to attend and speak with a few brands, the bad news is I couldn’t stay long and only got to speak with three or so brands but at least they were my first choices. Why didn’t I get to speak with you more, you may ask? Time
is the answer and the issue. The event was held at the very massive and off the beaten track La.Venue; I do love La.Venue and I have attended quite a few events there but it’s not easy to get too and you need travel time. On any other day, this would have meant nothing to me but this event just happened to be on a day where my checklist was quite a long one.

Anyway, I got a chance to enjoy learning more about Moroccanoil (a salon-only product I’ve been dying to try)

the comfy bras and tanks from Maidenform

and Nivea (this brought back memories of me growing up sneaking some of my Mom’s Nivea Milk and Nivea Creme)

As attending press, we were lucky to get a full-size bottle of the Moroccanoil

which I happily used that same day when I got home. I’ve heard wonderful things about this hair treatment and as someone who doesn’t use any styling products in her hair, I can tell you I’m very picky and am very happy with it. I use leave in conditioners as my hair moisturizer as anything else would weigh my hair down and there’s nothing worse than limp hair. I love the shine it adds while keeping my hair light and non-greasy. I look forward to trying the shampoo and conditioner. Click HERE to find a salon near you that uses Moroccanoil products. I did miss out on getting Senior Stylist and Hair Care Expert Mary Zingone, from the exclusive AnthonyLeonard Salon who was offering Moroccanoil hair touch-ups and winter hair care tips but I did speak to her briefly about my hair. If you’re feeling lucky, enter their US Sweepstakes for a chance to win $375 worth of products

At Maidenform, I was introduced to Maidenform’s BOD SQUAD for a one-on-one fitting and discussions on “Why the Bra is Essential to Holiday Dressing”. As a proud member of the D Club, this was not a hard sell. I was introduced to two new wonderful products from Maidenform. First was the Custom Lift Satin Demi Bra, which is one of the best t-shirt bras I have ever had

Each cup size comes with custom lifting beneficial to your cup size, the result is a natural shape with soft satin fabric that gives you a smooth finish and eliminates any unsightly bulges.

Second was the Flexees Fat-Free Dressing Tank Top

While I needed a bra for the top part (again, proud member of the D Club), the microfiber liner smoothed out my midsection a little; I was given a large at the event so it didn’t hold me in as I thought it should (a medium would have been perfect) but I was still happy with it, especially that it was longer in length than most and I could use it to layer seamlessly. Why not visit Maidenform and find your perfect bra HERE

Last but not least was Nivea, as I mentioned before, my mom used Nivea Milk and Nivea Creme throughtout my childhood and I remember indulging in those products almost daily, so I grew up loving Nivea and I was very happy to see they had a presence at Product-n-Press. I was even happier when I was gifted with a full bottle of the Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil Body Wash

“Enriched with sparkling diamond powder and conditioners, this exquisite pearlescent cream oil creates a supreme lather that glides over skin and rinses smoothly, without leaving any shimmer particles on your skin”. As it gets colder, I always find that my skin gets dull and lifeless (sometime even after heavy moisturizing after I shower and throughout the day) but after I started using the Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil Body Wash, my after shower moisturising has been cut down to just once. My skin doesn’t feel dry and tight like with other washes and I find myself touching my skin more and it always looks healthy, moisturized and supple. If Touch of Sparkle is not your forte, you can try any of the following Cream Oil Body Washes- Touch of Radiance, Touch of Harmony, Touch of Beauty or any of the Moisturizing Body Washes – Touch of Bliss, Touch of Smoothness and Touch of Happiness.
