Nivea has always been a favourite lipbalm for me 'coz of its easy availability and affordable price range. When they started coming out with tinted lipbalms I was totally sold! Today I will be talking about 3 of their lipbalms which I have repurchased time and time again!
Lt to Rt:- Essential care, Fruity shine, Hydro care
The Essential care lipbalm is perfect for winters and especially great if you have dry and chapped lips. Its extremely hydrating and moisturising. The balm is really thick and greasy. It reminds me of labello lipbalms in consistency and I purchased this when I ran out of my labello lipbalm and the sales lady told me this is a good alternative and she was right! I mostly use this when I am planning to exfoliate my lips. I pile this lipbalm on every 2- 3 hrs till evening and by that time all the dry peelers on my lips would have become really soft and I use a moist warm cloth to exfoliate my lips and all the dead skin just comes off without much tug & pull. This is a must have in my list as I use it regularly for exfoliating purposes.Ladies wit extra dry lips would love this and its a great lipbalm during winter. The only downside is that it becomes all gooey real soon even if its inside the tube. So, make sure you store it in a dry place.
This one is by far my favourite tinted lipbalm. Its cheap, easy to get a hold of, hydrating and just perfect for everyday wear. I love the shade "pomegranate" and I think this is my third tube. I first purchased it when I was a student and me being a doc was not allowed to wear really overpowering lip products and so this one was a great alternative. I used to have this in my bag all the time and still do. I use this on days when I don't like to wear a lot of makeup but still look presentable. Its great for pigmented lips like mine. The only downside, one has to reapply this every 2 hrs and if you are eating or drinking....poof...its gone! I don't mind the cons too much as this works as a great lipbalm which is the perfect shade for me. If you work in an environment where you can't put a load of makeup or if you are a student then try this. Its really amazing.
This is the lipbalm, nivea hydrocare, that I use when I am at home to keep my lips hydrated. This is also my favourite night time lipbalm. Its really moisturising, non greasy and great for dry lips. It doesn't have a weird taste or smell and that helps a lot. One can also use it underneath lipstick to keep the lips hydrated.
All of these nivea lipbalms cost under 100 rs ( I am not so sure about the tinted lipbalm....but it sure is affordable). All of these last a long time and they are worth buying.
Do you have a favourite Nivea lipbalm? If you do then please post it as a comment....I would love to check it out :)
