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

Pros:

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

Cons:

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)

Recommend?

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

Review: Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream // Good Drugstore Moisturiser

Hi everyone,

I’ve got another review for y’all today – I really enjoy making these posts and hope you enjoy reading them! This review is on the Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream. I have really dry and sensitive skin along with eczema, so finding a moisturiser that is super hydrating is crucial. I used to use the oil free Neutrogena one for sensitive skin, which was pretty good up until it stopped moisturising my skin effectively (not sure why, perhaps my skin got used to it).

Don’t mind the random white spot… it’s nail polish – I had to use something to put the polish on while doing nail art and this was the closest thing, haha!

Price: $10

Pros:

So I went on the lookout for another great moisturiser and came across this one – it is extremely affordable as well, I believe it is around $10 for a 200mL tub (fun fact, I also saw a miniature version of this at Kmart which was so cute but pricey). It feels really light weight when first put on and does a great job at moisturising my skin. I remember the first time I used it I was amazed at the refreshing feeling it had when I put it on my skin. The packaging is extremely secure/spill proof since it’s a screw on lid & I think it would be perfectly fine for packing in your suitcase.

  • Affordable
  • Lightweight
  • Effectively moisturises dry skin
  • Suitable for traveling
  • Spill proof packaging

Cons:

A con for this moisturiser is that it does leave your face quite shiny, so it is not ideal for oily skin in the morning when you need to go out soon after. Another con is that sometimes a particular part of my face (a small area) does not want to stay moisturised – but this is not consistent, it just randomly becomes dry some days, which I suspect may be from the wind or dry weather. Overall, it does a great job at moisturising.

  • Leaves shine

Recommend?

I definitely recommend this product if you’re after an affordable, effective moisturiser! I believe this is available in most stores in Australia (such as Priceline, Woolworths, Kmart, etc) and would be definitely available in other countries.

Rate: 4/5


What are your favourite moisturisers/thoughts on this one? I’ve been wanting to try out new ones and I hear the Neutrogena Hydroboost one is amazing (but costly which is a shame).
