Three weeks ago, my daughter celebrated her 1st birthday, and we decided to go swimming with the entire family for a change. Since it's summer already and the heat is scorching than ever, I made sure we have enough sunscreen protection for the kids and adults alike.
To be honest, I have never used any sunblock lotion since I became so fond with beaches and resorts. Probably because I have always wanted to get a tan, and I always thought that for me to get that deliciously brown skin easily is to expose myself under the sun without using any sun protection. In other words, burn. But what I didn't realize though is that I was exposing my skin to more harm than I thought.
And so, this time around I made it a point to pack with me two bottles of sunscreen lotion with high SPF. I shopped and that's how I found Nivea SUN Maximum Protection lotion with SPF 50.
Truth is, before I decided on this product I also compared it with some other brands on the shelf, and what I liked best with Nivea is that you don't need to wait couple of minutes upon application before you hit the sun. Indeed, it is quickly absorbed by the skin, plus I didn't feel that dreaded sticky and icky feeling at all.
Of course, I still got the tan I was wishing for, but at least this time I didn't have to go through with the sunburn peeling part. In fact, my skin looked evenly brown and I just love it that way. Really glad, I found this product!
