Nivea Lip Butter Caramel Cream Kiss and Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss Product Review
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
I thought the April Fool's joke was on me, when reviewing these Nivea Lip Butters! I was conflicted on rating them. Initially, I was going to give them a bittersweet rating, but after weighing all aspects I changed it to sweet. Let me explain. The tins are cute (positive)! The scents are nice (positive)! They're extremely moisturizing (positive)! But...But...The formula is SO HEAVY (negative)! I feel like I'm putting butter or grease on my lips! HaHaHa Can anyone say butter lips? HaHaHa I've been using these at night. I feel they're too much for daytime (I'm not walking out my house with shiny and greasy lips). I will say this! The formula works well. I applied the lip butter overnight and my lips felt awesome when I woke up. Very soft. Very supple. However, I still can't get over how heavy the formula is. HaHaHa I really should've known. God bless my grandmother's soul! She loved and used Nivea lotion daily. It kept her skin moisturized and young, but Nivea is the heaviest ass lotion I've ever tried. These lip butters feel the same. The 1st ingredient listed is petrolatum.
The scents definitely match the names on the package (Vanilla & Macadamia and Caramel Cream). I think these would be better if they were in a tube. I hate sticking my finger in the tin. This balm lasts for hours! I applied it before bed and still felt product the next morning. These definitely get the job done, but they're heavy. In conclusion, there are more positives than negatives, that's why I went with a sweet rating. Some excellent lip balms (that are not as heavy) Fresh and Avon (YES!). Have you tried Nivea's Lip Butters or Nivea products?
