i bought it today and used it. then my lips were wet after about 45 mins. wierd. otherwise pretty good. :-)
It's good for general lip moisturising throughout the day, however I have lips that get dry and chapped very easily, so sometimes I do need something a bit more heavy duty than this (Blistex normally does the trick once a day, otherwise I can just use Nivea). It's so easy to apply and a great price, however can be quite greasy on the lips so if your hair is down on a windy day, you might get your hair stuck in it!
So I have been a great fan of the NIVEA essential lip balm for ages, and I was tempted to try this one and see if it was just as good. Sorry to say, but was very disappointing! This product doesn't deliver rich moisture to lips at all! It leaves a 'film' that just sits on lips for a while and makes them feel soft and smooth but then they are back to dry again in an hour or so. Don't spend money on this. Every girl deserves an rich moisture giving balm and this isn't just worth it, no matter how cheap it is.
Would I repurchase? Nope.

mediocre lip balm that has a faint pleasant odour of vanilla
I only bought this a couple of days ago, but already it's love! Got rid of all the annoying little flakes and leaves my lips feeling very smooth. It also works great applied thickly as an over-night treatment. Would repurchase.
My daughter bought this and I am always stealing it from her. I like to use it at night before I go to bed. It is pretty greasy feeling going on so I don't think it would last very long during the day as I talk a lot for my job, drink water constantly, etc. I consider it a great bedtime lip treament.
Nice Clean Fresh Smell. Moisturises my lips when dry for a long time. Smooth feel and provides a sheen. Contains UV protection. Leaves no white reside. Perfect applied on its own or as a base. Extremely good value for money. Easy to apply and carry.
Hydrated my lips, it felt smooth. I agree that its not long lasting, but all I had to do was reapply it a few times during the day. I would use this simply for keeping your lips moisturized. If your lips are constantly dry/cracked I'd recommend you to use something better. I also would of liked some spf, but overall not a bad lip balm.
Like other reviewers have said, it's not long-lasting at all. I have large lips which are more often cracked and nasty than not, so it's pretty useless for me.
I am not happy with this one. This is a lighter version of Nivea Essential Care balm in the dark blue tube. Hydro Care is just TOO lightweight. It wears off quickly and seems to leave my lips just as chapped and dry as before I applied it. I will go back to Essential Care. It is the best lip balm and I shouldn't have strayed!
