(Silver protect, Original care, and Power refresh)
There are days when I want to soak up in the bathroom, think things through because most of my ideas hatch up in there HAHA but I have to admit, there are also days when I just want to shower and go. I honestly think shower gels made that easy for everyone. The thing is, I hated 3-in-1 gels, I think they’re really just specifically made for the skin and because they really feel coarse to the hair. Last weekend, after doing chores, I thought of having a quick shower before getting a haircut and since I know I have to shower again after my trip to the barbershop, I didn’t really plan to wash up thoroughly (eww right?) I decided to open up a box of shower gels that NIVEA sent me and lather on one. To my surprise, quick shower never felt satisfying! I didn’t feel the need to massage on conditioner and slather up some moisturizer after. I’m not saying this because NIVEA gave me freebies AND I WANT MORE but because it’s true! Showering never felt easier and more efficient with these gels. I have been converted from a shower gel unbeliever to a proper shower gel advocate. LOL
I did a mini product review on each of the three and here are my thoughts:
SILVER PROTECT (Freshness and silver ions)
If you’re the type who is always playing with the boys and sweat-prone, I’d totally get if you would prefer this one. The antibacterial on this formula works against body odor so you’d be sure to smell good for longer. The scent of this one is very masculine that I can totally visualize a locker room filled with boys who are ready to go on a date.
POWER REFRESH (Menthol and scent of water mint)
This gel will definitely be on my summer travel kit! The menthol and smell of water mint adds to the thought of feeling fresh. Also I think this particular gel will work for you after a long tiring day in a humid city like here in Manila.
ORIGINAL CARE (Moisturizing and aloe vera)
This one is my personal favorite. I picked to use this one first among the three because it has a very clean and timeless scent which I think I could use throughout the year. Also the aloe vera made me feel like I’m lathering up with cream instead of soap which I’m pretty sure won’t dry my skin up like how regular soap does.
Although these gels target hair, face, and body, I still think you should get yourself a product that has SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and/or UV protection especially if you’re active under the sun. Nivea has that covered as well because I’m using their Cell Repair and Protect Whitening Body Lotion. ;)
