Review: Nivea Lip Balm

Name: Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm
Flavor: Cherry
Weight: 4.8 g

The Nivea sale was fun. Although I really want the Lip Butter (in can) but it can't be found immediately or nearby. So I just bought the Nivea Lip Balm

Packaging

The Lip Balm is attached in a paper or cardboard printed with the Nivea logo and other details. This makes the product more secured. 



According to their website it is Dermatologist tested.

NIVEA® Fruity Shine with strawberry aroma and shimmering pigments:
  • Delights lips with fruity scent and smoothing, long lasting care.
  • Naturally enhances the look of your lips with a reddish glossy color.

The ingredients are listed at the back.

  • Ingredients/Ingr├ędients:
    Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Polyisobutene, Octyldodecanol, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax/ Cire de candelilla, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Microcrystalline Wax/ Cire microcristalline, Isopropyl Palmitate, Synthetic Wax, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Glycerin, Glyceryl Glucoside, Water/Eau, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Fruit Juice, Mica, Propylene Glycol, BHT, Aroma/Flavour, Yellow 6 Lake, Titanium Dioxide, Red 7 Lake.
The ingredients seem helpful to the lips but I'm a little concerned about the Mica, Silica and BHT. Any guess why? You can research about them and write at the comments what do you think about those ingredients.





The Lip Balm

To use the lip balm, you need to rotate the bottom part for the lip balm to go up.

Actually this is not the first time for me try this product. A classmate gave one to me way back when I was in high school. I do not know exactly her reason but after a few weeks of applying it my lips got darker.

I assume Nivea had reformulated this product because the packaging change. Anyway lets see on the coming days what will be the effect on my lips.




It does color my lips but since my lips are not naturally light colored or pinkish it is not that obvious that I applied it.

Anyone who has tried this product? Write your comments below.
