This is my go-to winter lip balm. I have dry skin & the heated indoor air during winter ravages my lips in particular.
The only downside I can see to this product is it is moderately balmy-feeling/thick in texture. If you don't like feeling your lip "stuff," you will not like this particular version one bit. If, like me, you have dry, sensitive skin and/or live in an area with harsh winter weather, at least give these a try!

I bought this today on a whim because my lips have been really chapped all summer. I am really glad I did.
It has a really delicious creamy chai tea smell and tingles slightly when you put it on. I would say it's on the thicker side, which is nice because it actually feels like it's staying put. If I mess with it too much I do have to reapply. The stick package is nice and sturdy. Oh, and this actually has an SPF 15 now. I also like that Nivea doesn't test on animals. So far, this seems like a newfound favorite.
P.S. The two super dry bits on my lower lip are like 90% moisturized after just a few hours of wear.

For the first time in my life, my lips are not chapped and peeling - and all within 3 days of use!
I've found the results from this Recovery balm superior to those of the Kiss of Moisture balm in the blue tube (which softened my lips but never fully healed them). In addition, the texture is better. Unlike the Moisture balm, which was too soft and left me feeling like I had glooped on a bunch of product each time I used it, the Recovery balm is firmer and adheres better to the lip without being waxy. The finish is matte/satiny and is perfect for daytime use.
Recovery smells like chai tea and feels very very very slightly tingly. It is NOT super mentholated/camphor-y like other "medicated" balms or Burt's Bees.
Before finding this, I was about to cave in and buy the $25 Fresh Advanced Lip Therapy balm from Sephora when I saw Kiss of Recovery at the grocery store. I'm so glad I decided to give this a try before shelling out the big bucks!

Love love love loooove this stuff. If you have chapped or dry lips this will heal them literally overnight. It is so soothing, creamy and comfortable on the lips.

This stuff is amazing. It goes on smooth and keeps my lips from getting dry and chapped very well, and it smells really good.

I love this stuff! I tried this on a whim when my normal Nivea lip stuff (dark blue tube) was out. This at first was not one I really liked. Then I tried it again but smoothed it out on my lips a little longer so it would warm up and melt. After that I have been hooked. This sinks into my lips perfectly leaving me with a smooth, moisturized lips. This does have a waxy feeling, but I think that is why this lasts so long. I can go quite a while without having to reapply which is a nice bonus. The tube I find pretty conveinent. I can use almost all of the balm and when it gets really low I can still dig out the remaining bit. One of the best lip balms out there!

I used to be a firm believer in Burt's Bees until one of my friends let me try her Nivea A Kiss of Moisture (light blue). I immediately noticed the difference and made the switch. One day, Rite Aid had a sale on Nivea lip balms so I decided to give A Kiss of Recovery a try. Every since that day, I never went back to anything else. I believe that it leaves your lips softer for a longer period of time than all other lip balms I've tried, which includes but not limited to Soft Lips, Chapstick, Burt's Bees, Carmax, and Blistex.

I love this lip balm. Now many are against that "waxy" feeling, and if you're one who doesn't like the heavy feeling on your lips, then I would suggest nivea kiss of smoothness, which is much lighter. But I rather like the feeling of having something on my lips. I will have to apply this at most only three times a day (not that it stays on that long, but when it wears off, my lips are smooth), and works very well on my dry lips. I'm not a big drinker, as in water drinker, so my lips are very chapped, and this works great! Some chapsticks (i.e. carmex and Burt's Bees) work really well, but if you don't continue to use them then they dry your lips out. I thought that this one kind of jumped on the bandwagon as well, though it feels great on your lips, after about two days without reapplication your lips will be dry. HOWEVER, that IS a lot better than others that will cause the lips to dry out just a few hours after application. Pretty great but not HG material. Look at me, I'm using real MUA lingo!

I love Nivea lotion so I figured I'd like their lip balm too, but I was wrong. It goes on slick and I like how it doesn't leave a waxy feeling like with some other chapsticks. But for me, it only moisturizes my lips for a little while. I have to reapply about every 10 minutes. I'm a bit disappointed with the packaging too ... looks a bit like a glue stick. I've tried a lot of different lip balms, and for the price and quality (compared to other drug store brands), this definitely did not cut it. I would not repurchase.

Love the packaging... I like how it covers the whole thing and it's all fun to take out and put back in. It's soft, light and it doesn't smell bad or taste funky, it's just like a light vanilla smell to it... but that's it. I like that, not overpowering and it's soothing to a point. I don't like that I have to apply it every 30 minutes to an hour but that's to be expected sometimes. I get really irritated lips, they're not chapped or dry, just irritated, so this is nice to relieve a bit of that irritation. Would repurchase

This nivea balm is the one in all the white tube. I find nivea balms most readily at rite aid, and would compare this one as far as moisturizing properties with my fav nivea, a kiss of moisture (dark blue tube.) it's light years better than the one in the light blue tube, which fades away after about thirty minutes, and has a only SPF 4. It has no scent, and does not leave that gross plastic taste in the back of your mouth when you apply it. The package is perfect--I love how the lid covers the whole tube, so it makes it more melt-proof. This beats rosebud, burts, Mac, weleda, aquaphor, softlips...(shall I go on?)

I got a bad sunburn a couple weeks ago. Pair that with the dry Colorado climate and my lips were toast. I ended up getting a horrible crack in my lower lip just a few days ago. I tried my regular balm but I kept having to reapply and it wasn't soothing enough.
I bought Nivea A Kiss of Recovery 18 hours ago and already, my lips feel the best they ever have and the crack in my lower lip no longer hurts.
This will be my forever balm!

Amazing. It makes my lips feel so soft and so plump! I like how it has some SPF in it too. Perfect!!

This might be the best out of the Nivea balms. It's creamy & soothing, and non-greasy so it would work well under lip color for some extra protection. I swear it heals my chapped lips almost upon contact. Thanks to Nivea for bringing their lip balm to the U.S. - now I don't have to load up on Labello any more when I go to Europe!

This is pretty much my daily balm. I used Burt's Bees original for years and one day it stopped working. Now the peppermint that I once loved makes my lips sore. I had thought maybe they were reformatting it and on the lookout for a different balm for a while before my lips out and out ended up revolting and getting super dry and sensitive.
I've tried several of these. I feel like this one is the most moisturizing. But I prefer the Milk and Honey for scent and that's what I grab at home. I also use C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve and a few different Smiths rose salves, but typically this gets the majority of use.
Will repurchase although I might go for one of the other ones in the warmer months.

This is absolutely my favorite lip balm that I've ever tried! It's very smooth, and will apply easily even when it's really cold out! The packaging is great- It doesn't form that irritating hole in the middle. The smell and taste are very subtle but pleasant, which is what I like in a lip balm, and why I prefer Nivea over Chapstick! I also like it slightly more than the essential care, because it is more moisturizing and it has a higher SPF. Go out and try it, you can't go wrong!

I was looking for the Essential Care, which is in the dark blue tube but came across this in Target. I ended up buying it to try it out and it was pretty moisturizing. So far i have tried Essential Care, Milk and Honey, and the tinted ones (Strawberry, Passionfruit, Cherry). I would compare it to the Essential Care but i think it is still the best. It isnt as waxy but i re-apply more with this one. it also has SPF with Avobenzone and Octinoxate. i think the consistency on my lips is comparative with Milk and Honey except for the odd smell that Milk and Honey has. So, yes i do like it and will be my go to balm... that's if the Essential Care is discontinued.
EDIT: up the rating to 5 and has become my go to lipbalm... realized its one of those "keep it in your pocket" balms and its nice & smooth when applied after warmed up a bit... very close ingredients to the old Essential Care, in fact it adds to it with other moisturizing ingredients....
(((UPDATE))) 9/12: moved on to Weleda Everon... realized it holds longer moisture without the waxy feel.
