This is the newest lip balm in my little collection and it is one of my favorites. Nivea lip balms have always been one of my favorites since discovering them a few years ago. This is my third one in addition to the kiss of moisture and the kiss of smoothness that I have tried. I've always been curious about this one and since it had great reviews I decided to pick it up. I really like the packaging it looks cute to me at least and it goes up all the way so you can see how much product you have, in addition to that you get more product than your usual drugstore lip balm. This balm is yellow and I was a little hesitant about it at first but it doesn't leave a yellow tint at all and goes on clear just like any other balm. It does not have any weird taste and the smell is decent,a little floral with a hint of honey. It goes on buttery soft and I can feel it moisturizing my lips the second it goes on, the moisture lasts a pretty good amount of time and it actually sinks into your lips rather than just sitting on them. Another great thing is that after it wears off my lips don't feel as dry and I don't feel like I have to apply this right away. I use this one on days when i'm just at home and its great to use at night as well. The only con would be that it doesn't have spf but I have my kiss of smoothness for that. This is great for the occasional dryness but I don't think it would help anyone with severely dry chapped lips but its a great daily lip balm and overall I would reconmend it.

As you can probably tell from the rating being 5/5, I do like this product. I've noticed that it makes my lips much softer and smoother. Although I have been drinking a lot more water lately, so I might have to edit later.
If I apply too much, it doesn't feel like I have a weird build up on my lips the way Burt's Bees sometimes can. Also, it leaves a really nice shine that kind of reminds me of the way my lips look after I've had a drink of water or if I've eaten something oily (that sounds terrible, but it's a good thing!)
I also like that it has a yellow tint to it; I'm an anemic due to some genetic thing and when my iron levels get too low I find that my lips can be too purple and sickly looking. The yellow in this product helps to counteract the purple tinge and makes my lips look pinker, which is nice.
My only gripe is the taste. I'm a big fan of menthol in my lip balms (some people hate it, so if you hate menthol lip balms, give this a shot) and sweet lip balms feel uncomfortable to me at first. The first few times I used this, I hated the taste and smell, but I soon became accustomed to it and I quite like it now. It's not really like the Burt's Bees Honey one, it has a different kind of sweetness to it that I can't explain.
I like the packaging, too, because it clicks nicely when you close it. Which is probably a bad reason to like packaging, but still. The older ones have a bee on it and the newer ones don't, if that makes a difference to anyone, haha. Overall, I'll probably be buying it again!

EDIT: Not sure what happened, but this stuff doesn't work the same way it used to. I'm pretty bummed and sad, but maybe there was a formulation change? Either way, I miss what this stuff used to do for my lips. Great when it works, disheartening when it doesn't. On the hunt for the perfect lip balm once more.
I'm extremely sensitive to menthol, so lip balms that have mint in them always make my lips chapped and shredded and bleeding in days. If you've got a similar problem, you'll know that this includes about 80% of all products out there. Here's my impression of this balm after two months of steady use:
This is the lip balm I've (we've) been searching for all my (our) life (lives). It's butter-smooth, but not oily or sticky. It actually sinks into my lips instead of rubbing off or disappearing to who-knows-where-but-definitely-not-my-lips. It takes effect almost immediately, leaving my lips moisturized and feeling full. It doesn't chap at all, and actually increases recovery time from damage done by other, pricer brands of balm.
The longer lid is great for me, since it's much easier to keep track of. I also like seeing how much of my balm I've used without wondering if I'll be able to screw the product back into the tube. Call me OCD, but it matters. Also a good thing - it's near impossible to get mysterious purse grit on your balm with this package design. Neato.
All other lip balms are the crappy ex-boyfriends you've had in the past that treated you wrong. This is prince charming. I never knew lip balms could actually do any good; previously I thought of them similar to bloodletting in terms of effectiveness, and waited and dealt with disappointment until science came up with something better. I actually looked forward to seeing this stuff *work*, as opposed to the old feeling of dread and impending disappointment as I watch the wreckage other balms leave in their wake. If this lip balm were a man, I'd take him home, introduce him to my mom, and have 17 of his children without complaint. I'm not even slightly tempted to try something better. This is the absolute best.

A new must-have-everywhere-I-go product for me. I alternate lip balms fairly frequently but I have just been loving this one. Unlike other lip products I've tried, I find that I don't have to apply this one as often because it keeps my lips moisturized and soft for longer. It does sit on the lips for a while, but it just feels and smells so lovely that I don't mind (taste is not as good but I can also live with that). Would recommend to anyone.

I got this for a $1 when it was only sale. AMAZING PRODUCT besides the regular lips balm. Smells awesome and feels refreshing Luv It.

I really love the way this goes onto the lips although I feel as if I have to apply it often because it is dry by itself because it has no spf. When i first opened the tube and applied it, I noticed that it is rather rounded and doesnt have that annoying dent that most lip balms have. However, it does not smell like milk and or honey neither does it taste.

You can tell that I really liked this product based on two factors; a.) I did not lose it & b.) I finished it all. This balm applies very smoothly, which is a must in my book. There are some lip balms, Burt's Bees I'm looking at you, that are dry and I feel like I have to fight with just to apply. My lips feel moisturized through out day, however I do need to reapply a few times. Next time, I'll be stocking up so I can keep one at home, in the car, purse and desk at work.

I am both pleased and displeased with this product.
1) I really like the tube/packaging. It is very easy to twist, and goes back in easily. I love how simple it is to see how much of the product is left. There's no guessing like with the general chap-stick tube where, when you get to the end you're like "Oops! I'm out of chap-stick!!"
2) This product goes on very smoothly and stays smooth for quite some time afterwards.
3) It smells quite good. I wouldn't say like "milk and honey" but it does have a sweet, pleasant scent.
1) I don't feel like it moisturizes very well, when the packaging says it "seals in moisture". I have very dry lips and I don't notice it doing much. Maybe MY lips just soak it up very quickly, but I'm not sure. Yes it stays on the lips and keeps them smooth, but after a while, I notice that it seems to almost disappear and you'll need to apply more.
2) Though it smells nice, it doesn't taste nice.
It has a slightly bitter taste.

I got a 2-pack of this balm for $2 at Target, so I didn't spend much money. The balm itself smells amazing to me, though I'm not exactly sure what it smells like. The texture is smooth and somewhat creamy, though it ends up feeling unpleasant to me after a while. It's like it's not moisturizing my lips in any way, so my lips dry out underneath the balm or something. I actually had an allergic reaction to some dental products I was using, and this did nothing for my severely chapped lips whatsoever. They just got drier and drier. I also hate that the packaging uses so much more plastic (and therefore: waste) than the normal lip balm tubes. I don't think I would repurchase this balm.

Nom alert! Yes - this chapstick is in fact as delicious as it sounds. While Iíve tried many other varieties in the Nivea 'Kiss of' family, milk and honey remains my all-time favorite. The rich, emollient, dark yellow product glides on easily and leaves lips feeling glossy and soothed. It has a very light, pleasantly sweet smell, though Iím sad to report the balm is flavorless (wouldnít a dose of honey flavor be divine?!?) In terms of moisturization, milk and honey does a better job than most. My lips are left feeling smooth and hydrated for at least two hours after application. The only real downside Ė the tube didnít last as long as Iíd like it to (approximately three weeks with daily use).
The bottom line: A delicious and effective moisturizer worthy of repurchasing
