moisture with a touch of pure natural

i had to make a run to the drugstore because i ran out of moisturizing face cream. i decided to try out nivea's soft moisturizer. ever since i was a kid i ALWAYS used the blue nivea face cream.. you all know which one right? it's the same packaging as the white one you see below but it's color is blue instead of white.

so here is my view on this nivea soft based on MY experience with it and may not have same results with everyone else so if you do decide to try, it is at your own "risk". =D -

i actually like it as much as the blue nivea. this soft nivea isn't so "greasy" and yes it does absorb quickly as it claims. right away my skin felt very soft through out the day. i'm not sure if it's just me but towards the end of the day my skin felt a tad bit dry but not in a bad way. as for the blue nivea, i kind of sweat a little more on the face during the day. this one, can't remember that i did so i guess that's good.
would i use it again? for sure! i'm good with this one or the regular nivea.

ALSO, i bought their new gloss *caregloss & shine in pure natural* and i can say i'm impressed with it. i can use it alone (since it already has some shine to it) or to prime lips and/or apply over other lip products. for me this is just as good as carmex.. i think this helped me from getting dry lips from lipsticks/glosses.
what i do want to know, is it good like carmex when it comes to dry, cracked lips? will it heal fast like carmex? that i don't know. maybe on my day off from work i'll let my poor lips suffer and try this nivea thing and see if it works.
flavor? i don't taste it at all.. i mean it's nothing weird or anything. i would certainly purchase this again. my lips may have a problem.. carmex has competition.. hahaa!!

please let me know if any of you have tried or use either of the products. i'd love to get some feedback. or just let me know if you've been wanting to try it or will try it.

wanted to share what i did yesterday. i was at my boy's house playing the roll of bob the builder/martha stewart-ish.. uh yyyyeaaahh.. so anyways..
first picture you see is his room with a lamp that's circled. i bought that for him at ikea ($9.99 u.s.). it has two lamps in one. click photo to enlarge if ya like.

second one here, that's his new bed.. i think i did 65% of the work, yep! he bought the bed frame and the mattress. i bought him that rug too, japanese import and thick, great material. so cushiony. i organized his room oh and helped him put up new curtains.

last but not least, wanted to share a picture of one of my favorite pairs of shoes.. i heart my madden girl!!
