Nivea lip balms never nourish & moisturise my lips. This one did just that - felt like putting wax on my dry lips. And my lips tingled/burned like crazy with this also. Dud.
This is THE best lip balm I have ever used and I ve used everything under the store. It made my constantly chaffing and peeling lips, so soft and hydrated. I actually think it also improved the color of my lips. I dont really like the tinted ones cause i prefer sheer lip balms and then apply my lipgloss on it. Although just the sheer ones also have a nice texture to them and if you are going for the natural look, it looks good by itself too. I use the Honey one before bed and during the day I use the Hydration and Moisture one since they have some SPF. The packaging is like most lip balms where it rolls out. I dont like the lip balms where you have to stick ur finger into the pan and apply it to lips. I feel like you take all germs from hands and first leave them in the lip balm and then apply them to your mouth. So the packaging works. When you start using the balm initially, it might feel a little hard but just a couple of uses will soften it (Thats what she said right!)
But yes an excellent product, will not ever stop using it :)
This does not moisturize what's so ever. Never mind, I lied. It only works for about a minute and it slips right off without touching or annything. This is horrible. Stay to the orginal-vaseline is always the best way to go..
Lucas Pawpaw's much better - unlike this, which dries my lips out after repeated use.
Well, I have the dark blue one, and I think it's basically OK. But you have to re-apply this lots of times since it comes off easily. And if you don't use it for like, half an hour, your lips will be dry like they never use lip balms before. Oh, well.
Really wanted to like this, considering I got it free with a coupon and a sale. But it's really not good. In my opinion, lip balms do one of two things: moisturize the lips, or coat the lips with a moisturized feeling that doesn't ACTUALLY moisturize. This is definitely the latter. Not good, waxy, leaves my lips dry and wanting more. I'll stick with Jack Black, my HG lip balm.
Someone bought me the original lip balm stick and I have never looked back. I always make sure I have some of this with me. Its really good. Only negative thing would be that you have to apply it more often throughout the day than you would want to so it doesnt last for ages. But its smells so nice it kinda makes up for it. Really well priced too, about $4NZ so I think thats really reasonable considering it does last a long time. Definitly recommend to have, especially during summer.
This is my HG lip balm. I have the original in the dark blue case. This lip balm is truly amazing; lasts for hours, even after snacks and my constant habit of smacking my lips. Most important, of course, is that it moisturizes well and feels greeeeeaaat! Not overly shiny or super greasy too. I love the fact that it has Shea Butter and Jojoba oil in it, two ingredients which are almost identical to the sebum, a substance in your skin which is what helps keep it moisturized. This is also a better steal compare to Chapstick; at London Drugs, it's $2.29 for 4.2g of Chapstick and $2.29 for 4.8g of Nivea.
I have to note though, anyone who considers buying the sunscreen one, don't buy it unless you don't care if your lips look white! It is because it's waterproof, I suppose. I would also recommend trying the Nivea Strawberry lip balm, it smells just like strawberries and leaves the most gorgeous, subtle, red tone and shine.
i used a kiss of flavor (cherry) and it was TERRIBLE. at first i thought it was working well but after about 10 min my lips were completely chapped and on top of that since there was a touch of color it looked disgusting, having cherry tinted flakes of chapped lips!
