Nivea Intensive Advanced Moisture Care Serum SPF 25 PA ++
This Nivea also comes in flip cap tube like Mustika Ratu. The difference is the size is only 75 ml, a half of Mustika Ratu. Designed for dry and extra dry skin, Nivea intensive series never fails for extra moisturizing. Added with UVA and UVB protections makes me never afraid to go out with this.
This white cream color and the same scent still reminds me of the old intensive series. The difference only on the serum version. Serum tends to be denser nutrient and quality, but this serum version for me is like thinner, more liquid version of the regular intensive series.
I have dry to very dry skin and it's flaky, so my skin loves hydrating lotions like this. It claims to hydrate more than 24 hours, but never works on my skin hahaha. If my skin is super dry, it would dry again after a few hours I think.
But cmiiw, the old intensive didn't have any UVA and UVB protection, am I correct?
Citra Light-touch White Japanese Wakame Hand & Body Gel Lotion
This one is almost empty so I can't reach much lotions left, because I already scratch it through the neck of the bottle. So yeah this lotions is different from the other. It's bottle but still flip cap in unique diagonal cap.
At first it launched, I don't think it can fulfill my skin's thirst. It's super light and greenish gel texture makes it a light moisturizer. I don't know why I suddenly bought this. Maybe I want to try it for sure and I also tired of the same texture of lotions.
And I was right. Yes it's low moisture stuff. Because it's a gel, it's absorbed quickly and doesn't make any touchable barrier to trap the moisture in. I love the idea of "gel" and "light", but in the end it's not for my dry skin. I recommend this lotions to those who doesn't like the feeling of "slippery" regular lotions after you apply it, because it's absorbed quicker than regular lotions. And also those who has normal skin.
A bit honest opinion. My friend also love this for its lightness. And if you consider the price ( I forget about the price but let me tell this), my pharmacy lecturer told us that it's difficult to make a gel. A gel should be transparent, and if he fail to make it transparent, he fail. Let's appreciate the works of the pharmacist ♡＾▽＾♡
