A Kiss Of Smoothness is definitely my favorite lip balm for many reasons: it contains broad spectrum SPF 15 (no white cast though), it doesn't feel like crayons or grease on, it really does make lips feel more moisturized even after it has "sunk in" or worn off, and it is clear and somewhat glossy in texture.
I also like that it doesn't have an odd or offensive smell (it barely registers as having fragrance in it for being a listed) and no flavor. Also, it's affordable at roughly $3 a tube.
The packaging I gave a 4. Although the cap/tube is mostly functional/sturdy, sometimes the cap starts to crack after a lot of use. I'd give this product a million points if they redesigned the case.
I'm surprised at all of the good reviews on this. I think there are three general categories of lip balms: those that absorb and actually nourish and moisturize your lips, those that feel moisturizing while on your lips, and those that just sit on your lips and don't feel moisturizing at all. For me, this is the last type. Very waxy feeling without feeling moisturizing or ever seeming to absorb. I like that it has SPF, but SPF 4 is nothing to speak of. Another user said it has SPF 15 but mine says 4 so maybe there are different levels out there. It has a faint scent of sunscreen, just FYI, though that doesn't bother me. There is no scent otherwise. I bought this in a package of two or two-for-one or something, but I doubt I will even use one tube up. I only gave it two lippies instead of one because I didn't have an adverse reaction to it, but other than that and the cheap price, not a winner for me.
I don't have extremely dry lips nor do they crack or bleed - but they do sometimes look and feel a little textured and icky. I do like this lip balm, however I think I like it because it makes my lips LOOK healthy and hydrated... when in reality, when this balm gets removed I don't see ANY difference.
I applied this a few nights in a row and when I woke up in the morning it would still be on my lips and when I took it off my lips did feel soft, but only for about 10 minutes. Then they went back to feeling like their normal selves.
I love the packaging, the smell of the balm, and how it makes my lips look, but I won't be repurchasing if I ever do run out of it (which I don't think I will because I hoard lip treatments and I've never found one that I've actually liked enough to use every day.)
Also, there's a TON of ingredients and some of them I don't even know how to pronounce; Makes you wonder!
I have nothing but LOVE for this balm, as it has saved my lips.
I have eczema on my lips and this is the ONLY balm that doesn't cause me irritation. ...Coconut oil also works, but it dries too fast.
It keeps my lips hydrated for faaar longer than any balm I've used in the past, and the tube lasts forever.
EDIT: I live in Canada and they've changed the formula. I find it to now be a lot harder to get the product on my lips (due to my eczema I need a LOT of balm on my lips at a time to counteract the dryness) and I now have to put a lot more pressure on my already irritated lips with this product, which isn't an ideal situation for them. I also find this formula to be slightly irritating. It still works better than other lip balms, but I do hope to move on to a better product in the near future.
This is my HG chapstick. If you like the milk and honey one, then this one is similar except it has a much better smell IMO.
This is an okay lip balm.
Had a lot of product (and nice packaging too)
It's really 'watery' when you put it on your lips, like you slathered water on your lips
Smells like household detergent (it's a very light smell but still....no one wants to smell bleach all over their lips)
Even though nivea had produced some other awesome things before, I won't purchase this again.
It's a little bit drying for me. Not as glossy as Maybelline Baby Lips. Doesn't really smell like anything either.
I love nivea lip balms! They smell delicious, come in lots of different 'flavours' and scents and they make your lips look really nice.
Well lets just say Nivea and I didn't start out on a good foot. I bought a brand new tube of this after hearing a friend rave about it. I opened it up and it broke off when I used it! I reattached it and it's been fine since, but that wasn't fun haha. I love the scent and the texture, but it doesn't last long at all!! It also isn't incredible at moisturizing, but it is very smooth and soft and I enjoy the texture and smell. If you need a heavy duty lip balm I would try jack's. I would say go ahead and try it out! Walgreens usually does a 2/3$ thing so its verrry inexpensive and worth a shot!
Makes my lips super soft and does what it needs to do! I love that! Other lip products just sit on my lips and can do nothing this one actually works! It's a great buy!
