Nivea Essential Lip Balm
Advantages: Cares for lips
Disadvantages: Might not like taste
Spring is on its way - I hope, and maybe summer will be round the corner but you can use a Lip salve at any time of year and my tube of Nivea is just called Essential care.
I bought it for going on holiday to the Arctic as I couldn't find the Sun protection one I had bought previously and was afraid my lip's would dry and crack in the freezing temperatures. It might have been the Arctic but we had some lovely sunny days as well as cold winds, blizzards etc. The wind was quite strong as we sailed north to the tip of Norway and protection for your face and lips was essential. I usually, well always wear lipstick when I go out but found it better to apply Nivea essential care to keep my lips from cracking.
The blue tube with white lid and writing is just like a small lipstick and pulls open and clicks shut easily. By turning the base the stick emerges - and was probably about 4cm in length. It is a white colour and quite greasy in a waxy way but smells rather pleasant and tastes good as well. I have to force myself not to lick my lips to taste it! I think there could be vanilla in it but find the taste/smell hard to describe. It is 4.8 gram size and easy to carry in your pocket or bag for frequent use. For all that it is greasy it looks OK on the lips, just giving them a shine.
I don't normally need to apply it as my lips stay quite moist with using creams day and night and lipstick during the day, but after a days shopping in a rather warm shopping centre and becoming a bit dehydrated I found my lips felt dry. A few applications of Nivea and they were back to feeling moist and hydrated again. Many people apply lip balms several times a day and this would be great for that purpose.
The moisturising formula of Nivea Essential Care is enriched with Jojoba Oil and natural Shea Butter to effectively care for your lips and prevent them from moisture loss. It leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth and protects your lips from drying out in all weather conditions. Nivea Lip Care's new innovative formula is enriched with Hydramine, a precious active ingredient found naturally in the skin, and Grape Seed extracts. This highly effective combination supports the lip's natural moisturisation process to leave your lips feeling soft and smooth for longer.
Available in chemists and most supermarkets this product is reasonably priced at less than £1.50 if you want to keep your lips in tip top condition and ready for kissing!
