I have already told you how much I love Nivea products and really liked the way some of you agreed and shared your sweet childhood memories connected with Nivea products. How our moms and dads used to smell like Nivea 😀
Well I am here again with my views on “Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm”. Read on to know how did I find it 🙂
Lip balms are a must for all of us whatever the weather it is. Applying a lip balm is certainly the most easy and handy way to heal dry and chapped lips. I have used many lip balms like Carmex, Maybelline baby lips, The Nature’s Co Chocolate Mint lip balm , Maybelline baby lips Electro Pop and many more. Nivea and covergirl are latest additions in my kitty.
I love Maybelline baby lips but when using a lip balm for night I don’t want my lip balm to have any artificial color and prefer it to be in pure form. This way Nivea is definitely a winner, specially for bed time :P.
This lip balm is very moisturizing and comes in a pure form and that’s why sometimes I use it for my son too. Texture is very fine without any irritating fragrance. But it does feel little heavy on lips and when it comes to healing properties, its not as good as carmex and maybelline. But Nivea comes with the goodness of Shea butter and jojoba oil. Best way to protect your lips from all types of weather.
What the product claims to do –
A perfect essential for everyday lip care. Moisturises and nourishes, leaving lips soft and smooth.
NIVEA Essential care deeply nourishes lips that always look and feel their best. With its weightless texture makes an effective all round lip care for soft and smooth lips, with no color.
An innovative formula with Hydra IQ enriched with Jojobo Oil and Shea Butter, cares for your lips and prevents them from moisture loss, leaving your lips soft and smooth.
Not too good. It stays for 2-3 hours and then you need to reapply. The packaging is fine with blue cap and white base. The cap is not loose and fits perfectly and is perfect for traveling or carrying around.

All in all, I find this lip balm quite ok. I like it only because I can use it for my son and hubby. It was not that good in healing chapped and dry lips but may be it didn’t suit me and might suit you. This time Nivea didn’t meet my expectations!!
