It's around this time of year that I'm always keen to try out new nourishing lip products. There's nothing worse than dry lips as aside from the fact that they just feel horrible, it makes applying any kind of lip colour a total nightmare. I also have an awful winter habit of biting my lips when they're dry so moisturising balms etc are always high on my product priority list especially at this time of year! As a result, I couldn't resist picking up one of the new Nivea Lip Butters when I was in Superdrug recently. Oops?
The Nivea Lip Butters are available in 3 scents; Raspberry Rose, Caramel Cream & Original. I picked up the Raspberry Rose straight away & didn't even both smelling the others, I was instantly sold! It's a lovely creamy, sugary, berry scent - aka delicious. The scent alone makes me want to apply this 24/7 & I'm willing to bet the Caramel Cream is just as dreamy.
The circular tin is super slimline making it the perfect on-the-go size & the lid removes easily enough (invokes memories of my school days when those infamous Vaseline pots seemed impossible to prise open & appeared to be surgically attached to every girl in my year)!
The product itself is just as fabulous as the packaging & scent. The pink colour doesn't transfer onto lips (although might be nice if a hint of it did) but it does look rather pretty in the tin. It isn't at all sticky which I love (this is my one gripe with the Korres Lip Butters, thought I'll make an exception for their stickiness due to the lovely colour pay off). It instantly feels rich & moisturising on the lips (that'll be the shea butter & almond oil) & you can feel it slowly sinking in opposed to sitting on your lips forever like some other products. I also adore that this doesn't leave your lips looking overly shiny (cough - Vaseline) but still carries a hint of glossiness.
I'm well & truely sold on the Nivea Lip Butters & at £1.49 who can argue with them!? They have the properties of pricey counterparts but are one of the cheapest lip products on the UK market at the moment! Hats off Nivea. A job very well done indeed.
