Nivea SOS Lip Balm
Advantages: It works
The lip balm comes in a 10ml squeezable small white tube with a light blue screw on lid. The tube has the dark blue oval Nivia trade mark above the product name written in red. The lid screws on tight enough to stay on when in your pocket but loose enough to be able to be removed with gloves on. The tube is very easy to squeeze and if not careful you may end up with half the tube on your lips.
The lip balm is a smooth white cream that spreads very easily over the lips. the cream absorbs quite quickly but leaves the surface of the lips smooth and feeling like they are sealed from the harsh weather. The cream has a faint chemical smell when first applied but this lasts for only a few seconds. The lip balm does not have a taste.
Does it work
I have been using this for a week now and it has been great. My lips are no longer red and cracking they are now smooth and soft. The balm seems to last around 3 hours if I do not eat or drink during which time my lips feel like they have a silky coating This is definitely one of those products that does what it says on the tin. At around £3. 20 it is expensive for a lip balm but it does provide fast results, therefor I would not recommend using this as an everyday lip balm but for anyone whose lips are in need of a little tlc this will deliver instant relief so I think it is worth the expense.
Summary: Expensive but worth it
