Just a quick review...
Nivea's Smooth Kiss Lip Butter
I got this product from a giveaway promotion on the Nivea Facebook page. I was really interested to try it. My lips are abnormally dry, even in the summer. During the cold winter months, they are unbearable. They flake, crack, and even split. Lipsticks and glosses tend to worsen my condition. Even lip balm that is supposed to moisturize can sometimes turn my lips into a flaky crusty mess! When my best friend introduced me to Nivea Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm it was instant love...I have never found a product that calmed and smoothed my troublesome lips like it does. Nivea Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm is an absolutely crucial beauty item for me, so I'm always eager to try other Nivea lip products to see how they measure up. I have tried pretty much all of Nivea's Lip Balm line, but Kiss of Moisture still stands alone as my favorite. When I saw this new Nivea product, I couldn't wait to give it a try.
What the Nivea Website says:
- Enriched with Shea Butter and Almond Oil to intensely moisturize and soothe dry lips for long-lasting care.
- Rich formula melts onto lips providing long-lasting nourishment to make all your kisses better.
What I say:
This is a very good product, although I still prefer the Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm.
The product is thick and creamy. It goes on smooth. It leaves a soft frosty sheen to the lips that is pretty, but be careful not to use too much or it can begin to look too thick and white like doughnut glaze!
There is no scent to this particular variety, but other products in the line have yummy scents or flavors, such as Caramel and Raspberry.
It does a good job of smoothing lips, but on the downside, it wears off fairly quickly.
Nivea Lip Butter is packaged in an easy-to-open tin. I am not fond of using lip products in a tin, because I am constantly re-applying on the go and applying with your fingers is messy. Because of this, I only use this lip butter while I'm at home. I keep it by my bed and apply it anytime my lips are feeling a little dry.
Overall, it is a very good gentle and soothing lip product. If my usual Kiss of Moisture Balm was not available, I would definitely buy this product as a second choice. I would highly recommend it, especially if you prefer lip products in a tin over a tube.
