Review: Nivea Lip Butter

Hi guys!

So today I’ve got another review for you all, this time it’s on the Nivea Lip Butter. I know the struggles of finding a perfect lip balm/moisturiser as I have really dry and sensitive lips which is super annoying. I can’t use cheap brands/poor quality products otherwise my lips explode and it’s not a pretty sight. These are around $6 I believe but I found them for $2 at KMART, however I don’t think it’s a permanent product there and they only had these two ‘flavours’ – I got one in caramel cream and another two in raspberry rose.

Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream and Raspberry Rose.

The Nivea Caramel Lip Butter states: Pamper your lips and indulge your senses with NIVEA Caramel Cream Lip Butter. Indulge in the delicious caramel cream aroma as the rich buttery formula melts on your lips. Enriched with Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Hydra IQ, NIVEA Caramel Cream Lip Butter provides intense long-lasting moisturisation to keep your lips soft and silky smooth.

The Nivea Raspberry Rose Lip Butter states: The moisturizing formula of NIVEA Raspberry Rosé Lip Butter with Hydra IQ contains Shea Butter and Almond Oil and provides intense moisture and long-lasting care. The indulging formula creates sensationally soft lips.

Price: $5.70


This lip butter is extremely moisturising unlike the Baby Lips by Maybelline and lasts forever on your lips. They are scented accordingly and smell heavenly – my favourite out of the two I have tried is caramel cream – it actually smells like caramel butter. The raspberry rose one smells like red skins – if you’ve smelt it I’m sure you agree. It doesn’t make my lips flare up at all, which is a definite pro and a must for my sensitive lips. It feels comfortable and makes your lips super smooth while it’s on and afterwards.

  • Cheap
  • Moisturising
  • Smells wonderful
  • Suitable for sensitive lips


The biggest con for me is the PACKAGING (although it is aesthetic). This is probably the most impracticable packaging ever, you have to remove the lid (it’s like a little jar) to use it. Then you either dip your finger in, which is extremely unhygienic (so I avoid this) or either rub it onto your lips straight from the package… (which is what I do). Another con is the raspberry rose flavour leaves a white residue after you’ve applied it if you haven’t rubbed it in well enough making it look really weird, the caramel corn leaves a very small white residue if not rubbed in properly. This is extremely annoying as you need to check in your phone or mirror if all the product has been absorbed/rubbed in correctly. I’m not sure about the other two flavours available in this range, but the raspberry rose one is terrible when it comes to this.

  • Packaging
  • Leaves a white residue if not rubbed in well (mainly raspberry rose)


Yes, I would definitely recommend this lip butter if you’re looking for a cheap, drugstore lip butter which is moisturising and lasts forever (product wise). I would say it’s suitable for sensitive lips as well (such as mine) so give it a go if you have sensitive lips. This product is much more moisturising than the Baby Lips which seem to disappear after a few minutes!

Rate: 4/5

  1. Does this have salicylic acid in it?
    Every chapstick I have on hand (with the exception of my EOS/obsession) has salicylic acid in it and I’m trying to find some more that don’t, obviously 🙂

  2. Love these lip butters but I completely agree with you on the packaging note .. super inconvenient and I always have acrylic nails so using my fingers is actually really gross as the excess lip butter is stuck in my nails after application. Wish it came in a tube or chap stick form as it is a very moisturizing and cheap alternative for dry, chapped lips. (Also a condition I deal with)

      1. You’re not the only one. I wish it didn’t leave that line, because it kind of looks like you have toothpaste or something. Ohhh yess I like popcorn. I’ll have to check the store and see if they have that one in stock 😊

  3. I got one of these when it was first launched and I was honestly underwhelmed by it. Not that moisturizing on me, but the scent was nice (I have the Vanilla & Macadamia flavour). But yes, that dang metal tin packaging makes it so difficult to open! I honestly don’t even know WHERE my tin is anymore – I know I didn’t use it up – it’s somewhere around the house…. lol

      1. They really do smell fantastic. I have to agree with you about the weird white cast it leaves on your lips though. 😦 I’m very pale so I look sick if I don’t rub it in properly. 😦

      2. Ahh so I’m not the only one, that’s the biggest downside 😦 just need to make sure I rub it in well enough so I don’t look like I’ve got ghost lips! Haha x


  4. Don’t know if you might be willing to make your own, but if you are, the people at have a lot of recipes and videos for making body butters, and other personal products. Perhaps they would have some helpful information for you, or could at least point you in the right direction.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Best Regards,

  5. I own one of them and find the packaging tricky and silly. Whatever tube or different shape would have made them far better. I’m not a huge fan of lip balms in a pot as well, so I think this is why I can’t use this as fast as I do with a stick…but the formula is soft and lovely.
