Love this. Excellent product, packaging and price. I prefer the scent to the strawberry one. I now want one in the car, one in the bag and one at home! The fragrance reminds me of the Ralph Lauren perfume Ralph.

I absolutely loooooooooooove this product, I have been wearing this everyday ever since I got, the colour is so pretty and it does not dry out my lips. This and the strawberry one are my all time favorites!!!!!

This product is good yet affordable!! I really love it. I love the smell of it too. It does help with my dry lips, but it's not the most moisturizing lip treatment I've ever tried. But I always come back to this cause it's so affordable

Most delicious pink guava scent!!! It's super affordable ($2) and was the first lip balm to be sold out at my local pharmacy, and then it was out of stock for a year... The colour is a light reddish tint, gives a bit extra color to your lips if you don't wear lipcolor, although I think the strawberry lipbalm gives a better color. The moisturizing ability is decent.

i thought i was going to rate this one quite high, but then i noticed that the smell was too strong! i mean i dont want to smell my lip product throughout the day. i also bought the cherry one, and clearly it is less disturbing me. its not a bad smell or anything but its quite artifical. other than that, i liked the shiny effect without visible sparkles and spf 10.

Now that I'm on Accutane (low dose of 20mg/day with approximately 5-6 more months to go), my lips dry out easily and they cry for moisture almost every single minute of the day. Pre-Accutane lip product favourites like Revlon Lip Butters, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses and even the pretty darn expensive (but worth it) Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick, do not cut it for me anymore. At the end of the day, my lips will be peeling and be in a sorrier state than ever. My bad.
My dire situation drove me to my wit's end and put me on a looooong search for a good tinted lip balm. After reading tons of reviews here and elsewhere, I decided to take a plunge and bought this baby.
And I will never look back.
The colour of this product is a warm rosy pink--certainly a MLBB colour for my rather pigment light mauvey-rosy lips. There are some shimmer particles but not overtly so that the shimmer translates to an OTT effect on your lips.
The first layer is enough to add some moisture and a nice tint. Go over once more for more moisture and an added punch of colour. 2 coats do the trick for me and my lips are left feeling soft and smooth throughout the day with a nice colour that adds some life to my pale Asian complexion.
It definitely tastes like guava--fruity but not sweet in an overtly artificial way. I'm quite sure most people will enjoy the scent and taste. It's quite light on the nose and certainly not overpowering at all.
The usual retail price is $3.50 but I got this for around $2.20 (SGD) because I redeemed my Watson's card points and bought two others (which will be reviewed under the "Fruity Shine" name, also by Nivea).
I will continue to repurchase this baby for as long as it's here and for as long as it works for me. Great for university, casual meetings with the girls or even heading to town area--it's just an effortlessly pretty look.
*This moisturizes better than my beloved The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick (I've gone through 3 of these!) at less than half the price, with SPF10 and a nice colour--that's saying a lot!

I have naturally pigmented lips but this lip balm/gloss really livens it up by giving it the most prettiest flush! (If your lips are more grey undertoned, I recommend the Strawberry version)
- Smell is divine!
- Nice flush of colour
- Lasts 3-4 hours (no food)
- Shimmery (I'm not a big fan of shimmers)
- Sticky! (Try getting your hair stuck on your lips on a windy day)
- Not suitable for dry lips
- Low spf

LOVELOVELOVE!!! This is by far my favourite lip balm. I keep it in my handbag, and it gets a work out almost everyday. I love the smooth texture of this and find it really moisturing. It leaves a nice wearable pink colour on my lips and smells divine. I just want to eat it lol...seriously. I bought this from Watsons when I was in Bangkok for less than a dollar. If I'd known how good it was I would have stocked up because they're $4 here and never on sale. Oh well at $4 they're still a really good buy. I also have the strawberry and cherry ones but but never use them as I always reach for pink guava. Must stock up incase they decide to discontinue this lol.

OMG I LOVE THIS! it's super super moisturizing - one swipe of it on the lips leaves them feeling really moisturised, looking super shiny without looking like OTT glitter. It gives a nice subtle tint of pink without being too dark. it smells really nice too :)

I got this for a dollar at Dollarama. Definitely worth buying! I love the packaging and although it is a bit greasy (but I find most lip treatments like this are) it adds a nice, subtle hint of color and shine to your lips. Even my 4 year old likes wearing it and loves that she's wearing "lipstick" like a big girl lol. For the price you can't go wrong although I'd never choose this first in winter. For the cold season I swear by Lip Medex by Blistex. Heals chapped lips like no other but that's another review.. All in all, this product is good and at a dollar, I'm very happy with it! The great packaging and good product would normally be at least a few dollars but at just a dollar, this is a steal!

I LOVE this!
The GOOD: pleasingly shiny and shimmery without being to OOT, sparkly or glitter, light flush of colour, nice scent, cheap, sturdy wind-up, smooths and softens lips.
The BAD: not as pink looking as the outside of the tube looks, not suitable for super-dry lips (but also not designed for that).

I have just gotten this one for about a week now. Love the packaging. I have always loved the packaging of all Nivea lip treatments and balms cause its just so inviting and brightly colored. What i like about this lip treatment is that it gives the right tint of fresh juicy rose like color to your lips which suits all types of skin tone. It pretty much moisturizes my lips well but the only thing i do not like about it is that in my own opinion it felt abit greasy but nevertheless i would definitely still go for this one. Owh and the smell is really nice too. Sort of a pink guava bubblegum flavor.

Another hit for Nivea! I don't know I`ve ever foundd a lip balm from them that I have NOT disliked!
PRODUCT: The texture is thinner than Nivea Essential. It's moisturizing but I wouldn't recommend this as the first choice in the dead of winter! (Tinted flecks of dead skin don't look very pretty anyways) It's leaves a glossy sheen that's more subtle than lip gloss with a hint of rose colour (Would be appropriate for all ages and great for an everyday flush).
PACKAGING: What I love about Nivea lip balms is that you can easily twist the bottom up like a lipstick to check how much product you have left. Unlike the traditional sticks, it takes a millenium to roll the stick all the way up, plus you risk breaking the product off if you aren't super careful. The whole thing is slightly taller and wider than a traditional stick, but can still fit in a pocket. The lid is a warm rose colour with the Nivea logo and little cartoon sparkles around it.
PRICE: Only $1.99 regular price at the drugstore here in Canada, plus you get 4.8 g of product compared to the usual 4.2 g in the regular stick.
BUYING AGAIN?: YES!!!
