I have such dry horrible hands due to my eczema.. however during the winter it gets even worse where I have to frequently use lotions. When Jennifer asked me if I’d be interested in the Nivea #sharethesensation challenge I couldn’t wait to try it out! I was excited to get the package that came with two full size bottles of Nivea Smooth Sensation and even the Samsung camera to take pictures in this post!
I hate my hands.. they are so dry and wrinkly.. and you can even see how different my hand is from my arm.. the tone is even different the picture above is after taking a 2 day break from Nivea and using sensitive skin lotion.. not doing so great.. When I initially used the Nivea lotion my hands got a horrible reaction.. I have extremely sensitive skin on my hands and never use anything with perfumes or fragrance because of it.. so I really hope they make an unscented option or use a natural fragrance that isn’t a skin irritant. After a few days break of using the lotion I tried it again and I wasn’t as red, however it still burned like crazy.. but my hands weren’t as dry! So I think an unscented option would be perfect for me!
The main reason I wanted to take this challenge is so I could touch my baby girl without putting my rough hands on her face, or giving her a bath and lotion on her without feeling like my hands were on fire from all the soap (which is why we use all natural products for her) Since I’m breastfeeding I cannot use any prescription creams as they can get into the milk..
My hubby who was camera shy loved the lotion for his cracking hands – he’s got hard working man hands! I’m glad to know he has an option!
Like the kit? I have one for you to win too!!!
