My reaction after watching NIVEA #Fairerandfirmer Underarm Video

Saw this post on my newsfeed shared by Smith and I just had to watch it.




There is a reason why I NEVER EVER show off my underarm (aka armpit) in public, at home and anywhere else other than in the shower. (Ok, except for the pools, cos no one will see when underwater what!) Because since puberty my skin has been discoloured badly in those area. Yes, I'm not shy to say this out loud. There's nothing to be shy about this right? WRONG!

If I'm not shy nor upset about my darkened underarm situation, I would be wearing sleeveless clothes everywhere I go to disgust the hell out of everyone who caught sight of my ugly armpits just because I can. I can count the number of sleeveless tops I owned all my life with both my hands. And when I wore them in the past, I am always conscious of my movements - not to raise my hands high, and don't tie up the hair in public etc.


A rare shot of me in sleeveless top back in 2005, just because I was at my slimmest best shape then and wanted to wear something that made me feel good for cutting down those fats. I could only find photos of myself in sleeveless (without a jacket covering my armpits) between 2004 and 2005. Because I do care a little (just the ugly armpit part) how the public perceive me.

During pregnancy, the discolouration was even worst! It did get a little better after a while, but still I would never ever wear anything that reveals my underarms ever again. At least not without a cover-up.

I tried many deodorant in the past and eventually got lazy and gave up. Just stick to my comfort sleeved clothes and I'm fine. Since NIVEA made their latest ads like that and showing the unsightly armpits right "in-your-face", I am going to go get one and try it. Let's see if it works FOR REAL!
