kind of shiny

This is moisturising and overall a simple lip balm. A little goes a long way with this lip balm, because if you apply too much it can be very very shiny. In addition, it can form white dead skin cells. For some odd reason, I find that it produces more dead skin cells than other lip balms. No scent, which is alright, but i prefer a fruity smell.

Very Nice!

This lip balm feels soft on the lips and one good thing about it, is if you get any in your mouth it doesn't have a foul taste. I use it every night before i go to bed, and it does an excellent job at repairing the dryness of my lips that i get from my braces.

A Moisturizing Lip Balm

I love using this lip balm in my night time routine, This lip balm adds moisturize to my lips and it leaves them nice and soft. It does take some time of it to be sink into my lips fully. I will buy again.

Average balm

I recently tried this Nivea Essential lip balm which comes in a simple dark blue tube. I don't think I like it this balm as much as the Nivia Hydro Care. Whilst the balm has a smooth texture, it doesn't feel as buttery smooth and moisterising/wet on the lips. I think this would be a good balm just to apply under lippy but I don't think it is moisterising enough for dry, chapped lips. I also appreciate the non-fragranced formula but it's not a lip balm I would repurchase.

amazing product

I love this lip balm. not only does it moisturise and protect my lips from the harsh Australian weather and everyday life but it also tastes great! And it's a great price. Coles and Chemist Warehouse often have it on sale for 2.50 and it's my go to lip balm! I recommend it to absolutely everyone!

I suffered from chapped lips that looked disgusting but as soon as I started using this product they healed and are now gorgeous! A much loved beauty essential for me!

too smooth

It was too smooth on my lips and not as moisturising as I had hoped it would be. A good basic lip balm if you ever need one though

Perfect lip moisturiser

My husband recently bought this for himself, and I ended up using it (as my daughter squished my other brand one because it smelt and somewhat tasted nice...she was 4 at the time). This texture is great and good coverage and not oily or thick. It is well priced and doesn't melt or soften when it gets hot.

A Basic Lip Balm for Dry Lips

I no longer use this or any unnatural lip balms but aside from that, here is what I thought about it. My review is on the performance and not the fact that I wouldn't recommend any unnatural lip balm.

When I use to use this it was actually one of my favourites because I felt that it kept my lips soft even after the lip balm had worn off.
I think this would be good for protecting your lips from the harsh cold wind since the softness lasts so long. The smell was fine, wasn't something I liked but I could still use it.

I think the lip balm lasted a good amount of time, it didn't just rub off straight away. You don't need to use a lot to receive a good amount of hydration so it lasts a good amount of time.

Richest + creamiest of the Nivea balms

One of my favourites. Doesn't contain many nasty ingredients. I feel this one runs out way faster than the others - it's the super soft, creamy formulation.

It is very hydrating and stays on your lips for at least an hour after application. Love the winding action of the packaging, the scent is mild - nothing to complain about.
