“The moisturizing formula of NIVEA® Lip ButterTM with Hydra IQ contains shea butter and almond oil and provides intensive moisture and long-lasting care. This pleasant formula with vanilla and macadamia aroma leaves lips sensationally soft.” *Dermatologist tested*
There is nothing worse then having chapped dried out flaky lips. I naturally have that problem and if I don’t apply some type of lip balm to my lips throughout the day then my lips will feel like sandpaper… not very cute!
I have tried countless different brands of lip balms but when I heard Nivea released their lip butters I was very intrigued. As with a lot of products that are released in the States I have only been able to find 2 different flavors in Canada which is the Vanilla Macadamia Kiss and Original. I was on a mission to find these lip butters because I love Nivea products in general and I have been using their products for countless amount of years so I really trust their products.
The Nivea Lip Butters are available at the drugstore and everywhere else that sells Nivea products. These little tins of moisture are usually located in the toothpaste aisle at Wal-Mart. They do look quite small but you really do receive a ton of product so I think the $4.00 it costs justifies the price.
The Nivea Lip Butters are encased in a thin tin that is easy to open. They contain 16.7g or 0.59 so it’s really a great deal especially since it works beautifully. Macadamia Kiss seems to be the most popular one so I am really glad I found this flavor. It combines the best of two worlds, Vanilla which should be noted that it does really smell like Vanilla Bean and doesn’t smell artificial in any way whatsoever. The Macadamia gives this balm a nice nutty scent and flavor which really compliments the vanilla. I am not recommending to actually eat this lip balm but the Vanilla and Macadamia really make this lip butter taste oh so good.
This lip butter applies very smoothly and melts into your lips like butter. The great thing about it is it absorbs into your lips pretty quickly so I like to apply this first thing in the morning before I apply any lip products. This lip butter lasts about 1-2 hours and even after it wears off my lips feel a lot more softer and subtle. It is a colorless lip butter but I do notice a faint white cast on my lips when I apply it, but it doesn’t look unnatural it just makes my lips a little bit lighter.
