Nivea Essential Care, Lip Balm Review

This is going to be another short review about another lip balm. I love lip balms! I have reviewed 3 lip balms thus far (here, here, and here). It is the one thing that I always end up finishing in my makeup stash. This lip balm is quite a popular one by Nivea and you may have seen it, well, everywhere!

Pictures! πŸ™‚

I just started saving cardboard packaging because they tend to contain information. Clear plastic is a little more tricky to save or properly tear off in the first place.

Description:

It is a lip balm that contains shea butter that claims to protect lips from drying out. It appears white in the tube and swatches translucent.

Price: Retails for MYR 10.90 (prices could possible be lower with special discounts or offers and also depending on where you buy it).

Where to buy: It is available in most places that sell lip balm (almost every drugstore/pharmacy/hypermarket).

 

Pros:

It goes on very smoothly.

Has a nice vanilla scent.

Hasn’t caused me any problems or allergies.

Does prevent lips from drying out.

 

Cons:

It feels very waxy and so it can seem very heavy on the lips.

Melts with heat easily so caution needs to be exercised when traveling with it.

 

Note:

There are a few other things to note with this particular lip balm which I don’t really seem to have noticed with the three others I have reviewed. Some may appreciate it, others may not;

-It appear very glossy on the lips.

-The consistency almost feels like lip gloss on the lips once on.

-Application results in a thick layer of product on the lips.

 

Rating:

7.1/10

This is one of those products that if you like how it feels, you’ll like it. If you don’t then you’d hate it. So, it really depends. I have tried to give you as much information as I can so it is your prerogative!

  1. This is like the 1st lipbalm I’m introduced to last time πŸ˜€ I do like the moisturising power but the thickness is a bit too much once it is melted. I normally put it in the refrigerator so that it’ll be in shape. This is like my “Home lipbalm” — I would never bring it outside with me because I don’t want it to melt. So I only use it at home. Hehehe~ πŸ˜€

    • I made the mistake of bringing it out once and it was kind of melting even just being in my pocket! 😦 Now it’s just in my desk makeup drawer. Never took out again! My room is air conditioned so I don’t have to worry about it becoming too soft.

    • Nivea advocates brightening cream which I personally think is ludicrous but yes, their balms and even the hair and body moisturisers are nice…
