It’s a lovely 16 degrees here in Maryland today, and with 40 mph winds, temperatures are going to drop into the negatives. This sudden blast of cold means dry skin and chapped lips, so it’s a good thing Santa brought me a variety pack of the Nivea Lip Butters to use for the rest of the winter.
I got five different varieties of lip butters in the pack – two stick butters and three in tins. And after using them for a few weeks I have to say, these are amazing!
I am a fan of the EOS lip balms, but the Nivea Butters seem to moisturize even better. You do have to reapply on a somewhat regular basis to keep the moisture, but really that’s true of any moisturizing lip product. The butters also absorb well into the lip without leaving residue behind.
The scent of the Raspberry Rose Kiss (smells like candy) is my favorite, but all five of the butters smell nice enough. The tubes are especially are nice for travel because, like a lipstick, they go up and down in the tube and you don’t have to use your fingers to apply as with the tins.
In fact, I’ve been reaching for the pink Kiss of Shimmer tube a lot lately because it is as moisturizing as the other butters but, it also has a glittery sheen to it, like a light lip gloss.
The rest of this winter is leading up to harsh one, so it’s a good thing I am stocked up on lip butters to get me through till spring.
What’s your favorite moisturizing lip product? Are you a Nivea fan?
