Confession time!! I have a lip-biting problem. Whether it is winter or summer, it seems like my lips are always dry & cracked. I’m constantly biting (and sometimes, licking) them and trust me, it sucks!! And when I apply a matte lipstick (which by the way I really love), my lips appear extremely chapped. It’s not even funny when I’m in a rush. Thus, when I got a chance to collaborate with Nivea lip balms, I was looking forward to observe my lips over a period of 5 days and see the difference.
I was given to review 3 different lip products – the original, cherry shine and blackberry shine. I had earlier seen the BFF TVC with Parineeti Chopra which basically states that these lips balms are the BFF to your lips. The role of the BFF is to provide unconditional love and care at every stage in life. Nivea Lip Care claims to epitomize the same, a solution to every lip need.
To begin with, I liked the simple packaging. The lips balms are affordable and easy to carry! Upon application, I found all of them to be very soft and smooth. They didn’t leave any heavy residue and didn’t smear all over my face. In fact, I liked the slight tinge of red that came with the cherry & blackberry ones. I loved the fruity smell too. And definitely all 3 of them left my lips feeling hydrated and soft for at least 4 hours.
Nivea also sent me their cocoa nourish body moisturizer. This one comes in their signature blue bottle and it has a refreshing coconut smell which lasts for at least an hour. The lotion spreads very easily on the skin and absorbs well. It does not feel oily or greasy. Upon application, my skin stays soft and supple for at least 12 hours.
At the end of the 5 days, I definitely understood the need to properly take care of my lips on a regular basis. I, now, also use the Nivea body moisturizer twice a day & the Nivea lip balm regularly. What’s even amazing is that the products are easily available at any drugstore. Next time you have cracked lips and dry skin, reach for these!
