Lovely scent.

The first thing you notice is the amazing scent. Application is really smooth and easy, it does give your lips a wonderful healthy shine. I am not normally a fan of red colours, but the tint on this is pretty, a great enhancement to your lips, and you can make it sheer, or build it up. I recommend to apply it gently, a thin coat first, then build it till you get it how you want it. It also feels moisturizing on your lips, and can be applied to cracked, dry lips, and reapply as often as you like to make your lips feel smooth all day long.

Not as good as it smells

What usually draws me to lip balms is the smell of the product and the effectiveness of it.
Nivea definitely delivers on the smell part as the Fruit Shine balm has a fruity, sweet scent which I can smell not just when applying the product but it lingers even while wearing the balm.
The product has cleverly disguised itself as a balm behind a lip tint as it adds a subtle red tone to your lips which you can build up to be more or less pigmented as you desire without having the opacity or boldness of a red lipstick when you are after something both nourishing and a but funky. The texture of the product is smooth, creamy and glides onto your lips nicely without having too much shine.
On terms of moisture, the product does pretty well but comparing to something like Carmex or Lucas' PawPaw Ointment there isn't much competition as they are more dedicated to the care side rather than the aesthetic. I find that even after thirty minutes to an hour I need to reapply or I can feel the dryness creeping up on my lips which is kind of annoying as it can make them go a little flaky - not the best look.
The packaging is like the other Nivea balms and that is the slip off cover from which a roll up balm stick emerges. I quite like this packaging as it is sleek, very easy to open/close and keeps the product in tact.
Would I repurchase? Probably not as I prefer a lip balm that keeps my lips moisturised for at least an hour or two however I will keep using the product until it's finished. RESPONSE FROM NIVEA: Hi spash96, Thanks for your honest review of our product. As you have highlighted this product is for people with dry lips who want a touch of colour. If you are looking for something more nourishing then we can recommend our NIVEA Essential Care or NIVEA Repair and Protection. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts about our product.

Like the shine

I am enjoying this one, it smells really good and I like the red tint it puts on my lips. Its shiny and long lasting. My lips feel softer and it doesn't make my lips flake. Its a winner.

Ehhh....okay

Pros:
Gives a nice reddish tint to the lips
Cons:
if you're looking for a moisture...steer clear away from this. No seriously. In doesn't moisturize at all.

Tips

If you have seriously chapped lips then DON'T BUY THIS!

Ideal for

Those who don't mind reapplying throughout the day

Beautiful

This lip balm does hydrate my lips perfectly and leaves sheer red on my lips and it has a nice strawberry scent to it, good for everyday use.

Meh

It's got a nice tint to it and makes lips look 'alive'. But after a few hours, it wears off and leaves gross red flakey bits of skin on your lips and is very unsightly. Not moisturising at all in the long-run, but it's pretty and has nice packaging.

tinted red lips

This lip balm is moisturising, glossy and provides a red tint. It has some silver specks too. It wont work as a night time lip balm as there is an evident tint. It works well on days where you are too lazy to apply a lipstick as this product provides colour and gloss together. However it isnt one of those balms where you can apply without a mirror. I would recommend this product and hope that Nivea introduces a coral and pink shade!

Dislike

It goes on really smooth on the lips but my lips looked very red and unattractive. It didn't nourish my lips and instead left them feeling more dry.

Gorgeous colour and shine

I love the smell of this lipbalm, and it tastes so good. It is moisturising enough, although not as much as some plain lipbalms. The best thing about this product is the tinting properties, it gives my lips a nice subtle red colour without being overboard. A great product that i will continue to use.

Staple Handbag Product.

This is one of those items you must have in your handbag. Without any colour on my lips I have a tendency to look washed out. I use this beautiful red tinted lip balm almost every day as it just gives enough colour to look nice without it smudging on your face like lipstick might.
It has a yummy strawberry smell, and it has a nice light texture, not too sticky or thick like glosses. It is moisturising, but you can overdo it so use a non tinted lip balm at night to keep your lips nice and soft.

Tips

You can also use it on your cheeks for a cute glowing flush. Just rub a little on your fingers and rub onto the apples of your cheeks.

Ideal for

When you need some low maintenance colour on your lips.
