[[ First off I would like to say Gong Hei Fat Choi! (probably not spelt like that, sorry for my bad Chinese) Happy early Chinese New Year to everyone! ]]
Now onto the review...
So a few of you should know that I suffer from extremely dry lips. (I have a habit of licking my lips due to my awkwardness or nervousness) and I never carry a lip balm with me since whenever I bring out my EOS lipbalm, most of my friends will look at it like it's a foreign object. They aren't very known to the makeup world sadly...
But last year I had a new student in my class and she always had a lipbalm with her, I asked her what lipbalm it was and it was the Nivea Essential Care Lipbalm, she told me it was the best and then of course I had to buy it.
I was really hesitant to buy it because I know the price is higher than the usual lipbalms but I did go and google it, if it was worth the buy or not. There was massive raves on this one, literally, so I had my hopes on this lipbalm really high.

I bought this at Priceline for $4.49.
All the Nivea Lip balms usually look like this but the colour and name is different.
I got the one in the blue tube.
I actually really like how the packaging is like a lipstick instead of the lid being a small cap.
When you open it, it comes with quite a lot of product!
I've been using this everyday, in the morning, afternoon and before I go to bed, reapplying when-ever it is necessary.
So far I only have half of what I had when I bought this.
The texture is so soft and creamy once you apply it on your lips! What I really hate is how lip balms go really hard in the colder weather so it takes forever to warm the product up and make it apply softly, but this lipbalm just melts on your lips!
The actual product is also amazing, you only need to apply this around 3-4 times a day if you have chapped lips then you are back with your normal lips. This product is definitely a lifesaver and my HG lipbalm!
The only bad thing I have about this, is that the price isn't my cup of tea and it does run low pretty fast. (I'll probably have to go buy a back up one soon).
Other than that I really don't have any complaints. I will be repurchasing this tomorrow as it is currently on sale at Priceline for $3.34!
Have you tried the Nivea lipbalms? Which are your favourites out of them all?
