I have used almost everything out there as far as a  tanning product, but this is actually the first and only one that right off the bat I noticed NO ODOR.  I never let it bother me  before, but being able to step out of the shower and put the cream on with no odd/different odor is absolutely wonderful!  Now as far as firming lotions, I started trying those this last year,  and the fact that this has the two together made me try it.   I haven't noticed a significant difference in the firming aspect between this and other lotions, they all seem to work fine and I am not silly looking for miracles!  The cost seemed almost too good to be true, since I was buying the same amount if not more on two other products to get the same result.   The one thing I did though is use the lotion on my hips abdomen, back and arms even though it says 'legs'   and after two weeks of using this (the fair to medium) it is such a natural color I feel good and healthy looking when I look in the mirror.  Thanks for this one!!!

I usually am very tan in the summer and I like to try to prolong the look as long as I can after the season has ended. I decided to try this product since I really like Nivea moisturizers and I do not think I will buy this particular one again. It took quite some time to get any sort of color to my skin and I am not really sure what the firming is supposed to do, my skin firmness never changed. I used this daily for several weeks and barely say a difference in color. I know it says sun kissed, so it's not meant for a good looking tan but I figures I would get something out of it. I did rate this a six because it did provide good moisturization but that is about it.

Effectiveness
This product gave me almost no color and did not firm up my skin at all.

Ease of Application
Applies just like lotion, so very easy to apply.

Scent
It does have a really nice somewhat fruity scent to. Made my skin smell nice for a good part of the day.

Longevity
I really got no color at all, even with daily use, so for me no longevity at all.

NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, For Light To Medium Skin

By 

from USA, Indiana

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

During the spring and summer months I like to have a sun-kiss appearance. I like to get the most natural looking tan as possible while you using self tanning products. I have tried several different beauty products that are marketed to help one get a glowing appearance.

Nivea Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer is effective with giving me the sun-kissed appearance that I like. The things I do not like about this product is the lotion comes out like water. If you are not careful you can make a big mess like I did if you aren't aware of the fast flow. Once this product if applied the sun-kissed tan does not last very long on my skin. By the end of the day it seems like the product has disappeared all together.

The scent of this product isn't harsh in smell like most self tanning products might have. This is a major plus factor for me since I usually will get a headache if I inhale harsh chemical smells.

This product is just okay in my opinion. I wish it would last longer once applied to my skin.

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

I have dry skin that turns very pale during the winter months, but during the summer I get a really dark tan. I use this NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer along with the NIVEA Sun-Kissed for legs. During the winter time I have a pretty, light tan when I use this lotion. If I notice my skin is turning a slight orangey color, I mix this lotion with a regular non-scented lotion and it works perfectly. During the summer months is when I really love this product. It makes my already sun-tanned skin the perfect tan color. It really enhances my skin color and gives it a nice glow. I would recommend this lotion to anyone who many want to build up a little bit of color on their skin over time. It does good to give color to the skin and it also moisturizes wonderfully!

Effectiveness
This lotion works really well for me. It gives my skin good color and keeps it moisturized.

Ease of Application
Applying this lotion is pretty simple. You don't have to worry about it being uneven and streaking because it only gradually colors your skin.

Worth a try as you do see results in the first week

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

I've had a few good and bad experiences with self tanning products and the NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturiser for Light to Medium Skin wasn't a bad experience. I am going to start off with the scent, it is not as horrendous as some of the strong chemical tans I have used before; I guess the term to use to describe the lotion would be a neutral scent, not at all unpleasant. The application is watery and sticky but after a few moments of rubbing it in the sticky sensation goes away. I am pretty pale and I saw results of a good natural tanned skin colour. Also I have used it on other parts of my body (which is also extremely pale) and the NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturiser worked on those areas as well, saw a change in skin colour by the end of the week, maybe more. As for the firming part of the moisturiser I can't really say I see any change but I am young so I guess this doesn't apply to, but I believe all those claims about firmer skin are mostly hype anyway. After just a few uses of this lotion, I am happy with the NIVEA product and glad I tried it.

Nivea Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer

By 

from Hermiston, OR

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

I had been going through the gamut of self tanning, skin firming moisturizer and was going to call it quits when I saw this product on sale. It was the best chance I took when I bought this and tried it. The product dispense easily from the container. It has a nice scent that doesn't smell medicinal, artificial, or chemical. It is easy to apply and doesn't clump. Using this product I have discovered I can use it on all parts of my body, from my face to my legs. It doesn't clog my facial pores or cause new breakouts. It provides an even coverage that doesn't turn orange over time. It took about a week before I noticed any skin firming, but it did start to firm my skin as time went on. I was very pleased to see this. I used to purchase a self tanning lotion to add to my skin firming facial moisturizer and then add the self tanner to my overall body lotion that was different from my facial moisturizer. I no longer have to do that. When I want a little extra sun kissed glow look, I just use this one product to lift, moisturize and glow. It has saved me a lot of money.

Looks great and smells good

By 

from Jackson, WY

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

I decided to try Nivea's Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer in my never-ending goal to look tan without sunbathing (who wants cancer??).  I had tried several tan-slowly-as-you-go sorts of lotions in the past.  Some I loved, some I hated.  Nivea's Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer promised two things I really wanted:  firmer skin and a nice fragrance.

I did like that it temporarily firmed my skin.  I applied it before hitting the lake in my bathing suit and it made me feel a bit less self-conscious about my more squishy bits.  It works great at moisturizing, which also makes me feel pretty in the summer.  Who doesn't love moisturizer, pretty skin? 

This moisturizer comes with a fragrance, and it isn't supposed to smell like most tanning lotions, which I liked.  The fragrance was slight and it was fairly pleasant.  I could still smell that "tanning-smell" you get from lotions, but it wasn't nearly as bad as some others I have tried.  I would definitely buy this again.

provides you with a subtle tan.

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

The Nivea Sunless tanning/firming lotion has its pros and cons. It does provide you with a nice tan after about a week worth of uses. The tan will come out to be a nice color and not orangey. The color came out pretty even for me, except for te fact that it was darker around my shoulder area. I have experience this with past sunless tanners also, so Nivea isn't the only brand that does this. The product also has a very disinct scent to it. I personally wasn't fond of it. It didn't smell bad but wasn't something I'd enjoy smelling like. The product also advertised that it was a "firming lotion" I used the whole bottle and didn't feel that my skin was any firmer. Maybe after using it for several months, results would be more visible. In conclusion i would recommend it just for the fact that it does provide your skin with a nice glow. If this is all you want from a lotion, then you should purchase this product.

Delicious! Best product for pale-faces who don't tan so well.

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

Nivea Sunkissed Firming Self-tanner is the best I have ever tried.  It's especially gradual, but seems to be the most natural tanner for pale skin like mine. It even makes my skin smoother and ultra-soft.  The price is not bad either.

Comments about NIVEA Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer, for Light to Medium Skin:

I absolutely LOVE Nivea sunkissed firming lotion! I've tried several self tanners, but this one has everything else beat in my opinion. I love the way it doesn't leave a nasty 'after smell' like so many others do. Another thing that's so great is that it goes on real nice, yet it won't leave streaks. My skin always feels smooth after I put it on. I think everyone should try this product. :)
