When these lip butters first came out last autumn, everyone seemed to go crazy for them. I was actually unable to find them at first because my CVS had sold out of them. When I did get my hands on one of these little tins, I was excited to see what all the fuss was about. It has been almost a year since I bought it and I have barely touched it. I will admit that the smell is sweet but the consistency and texture of the product is so ineffective and disappointing that this lip butter has been buried deep in my makeup drawer. Petrolatum, the most active ingredient in the lip butter, is supposed to be beneficial for your lips. However, when I put on this product, I feel like I'm coating my lips with sticky wax that takes ages to sink into my lips. Maybe I am just aversive to petrolatum based lip products. Another thing that puts me off about the Nivea lip butters is that they come in a tin so they're not particularly hygienic. Nobody wants to open up their lip butter and find a little hair or know that they are continuously dipping their fingers into the product and applying it near their mouths. Or maybe this doesn't bother you and it's just me. I would have overlooked the packaging if the product was miraculous. Back to the bottom of the drawer it goes! This lip butter also comes in the flavors: Original, Caramel Cream, and Raspberry Rosé. Let me know if another flavor is better or what your opinion is on this lip butter!
Also, I want to apologize if the quality of my photos is not as exceptional as it is typically. The camera I tend to use is currently overseas on an adventure while I'm stuck at home.
