Review: Nivea Men fairness creme

So let me put this upfront, ” I am a strong opposer of fairness creams.” I neither use them nor I like the ideology behind them (racism you know!).

This review only serves one purpose that is to find other qualities in a fairness cream if you have bought it or are planning to buy it. And also if you are going to purchase it, what factors to consider in mind! I hope I was able to make myself clear.

So today we are going to talk about Nivea Men fairness creme. I accidentally stumbled upon it when a friend of mine bought it for her brother.First I was a little surprised to know about a guy who wears a face cream and that too for fairness but gulping the whole incident down was a little difficult even if  he was skin conscious or a believer of the “Men grooming” fad.I mean a fairness cream! C’mon!

But later on upon my confrontation, I got to know that he bought it in a hope to reduce dark spots instead of a fair skin.Ok! So People don’t only buy it for fairer skin, there could be other reasons too.

So below is what I collected from him.

YAY or NAY

Well a product that claims to give a fairer looking skin should not be put under this category. But if we overlook this and see all other qualities, it seems to be a nice product which is good for men who are looking for a daily multipurpose moisturizer with a nice smell. Don’t buy it if you expect fairness out of it.

P.S. Embrace your natural skin, its your identity.
