Vaseline was the only thing I trusted when it came to lip balm, but when I lost my precious Pink Bubbly Vaseline tin, I decided to go out and buy something new!
I picked up the Nivea Essential Care balm in shear butter flavour at my local supermarket. I started using it straight away as my lips have been incredibly dry and crackly (ew!). There is no tint/pigment/colour at all, which I like and the applicator is similar to a lipstick, so I don't have to use my fingers and get them all greasy!
I was pleasantly surprised at:
1) How smooth it made my lips and 2) How long it lasted!
I think the smoothness is down to the 'Hydra IQ', but I'm still not too sure what that it!
It lasts waaaaaaaaaay longer that Vaseline petroleum jelly and (dare I say it?) has a better scent/flavour!
I really recommend it as not only does it do what it says, but it's also a bargain at £1.50 in most shops!
I haven't heard enough hype about this balm, which is insane! It's really good and am going to try some of the other flavours in the range like jojoba oil!
Oh, and i found my Vaseline tin, but it's not getting used as much these days!
