This was a highly impulsive purchase of mine. I was walking towards the till when I spotted this and I remembered that I'd owned one of these when I was a teenager and felt a sentimental need to repurchase it. I own a Nivea Essential Lip Balm which despite not being my favourite does get used quite a lot so I thought that even if I didn't love this Rose variety it would probably still give me a lot of use. I don't think I was wrong either. As you can see from my photos you get quite a lot of product in one of those little tubes, 4.8g to be exact, and the colour is extremely sheer (almost non-existent to be honest) which means that I can use this without a mirror, on the go and even over or under other lip products if I so wish. The tint it leaves is a very sheer, dusky rose colour that is true to the colour of the product and very similar to the product's packaging. Truthfully, I was hoping the colour would be less subtle so that this balm could stand in for lip stick/ lip tint on lazier days. I don't think this is the product for that, I'd be much more likely to reach for my Fresh Lip Treatment (which I received in January's Birch Box). All this aside, I do really like this lip balm. It's a little bit harder than my Nivea Essential which means that it doesn't melt onto the lips quite so easily making it easier to apply this sparingly. The packaging is really gorgeous for a product that cost me only £1.49 and the moisturising effects are good. There is some colour, albeit sheer, and as it has SPF 10 this will be good to wear during Spring when the sun starts to rear its head. For sentimental reasons I'll always like Nivea products and at such low prices they don't disappoint, so if you want a cute, girly lip balm whose packaging gives that very satisfying 'click' when you replace the lid then this is a good one to try.
You can buy this lip balm in Superdrug stores where it is currently on offer for £1.49 (usual price £1.75).
