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.
Check out my reviews on other lip products too and let me know if this review was helpful or not. :)
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!
I love all of these lip balms, But the thing i find, is that they do not last very long, and when you rput on lip balm/lip stick/gloss you eat some, (like not intentally) and it made me feel all gross and pukey. :$ and i found the balm to be very good and soft on my lips, and I do love the smell
I love it, it's a dupe to the MAC one... except not 15 bucks and doesn't feel like a primer and more of a moisturizer. The only bad thing about this product is that there is no SPF.
