Nivea Lip Butters: Review and Pictures

Hi loves! Today I’m here with a much-requested review for you all! On my last post I showed you that I got the Nivea Lip Butters and many of you e-mailed me and commented that you want to see a review on them, so here it comes now! :))

Now I am not someone who would normally reach for Nivea products, because to be honest I have never been a massive fan of the brand. I don’t know why but their products never quite impressed me. Until these came into my life! I heard about the lip butters from the lovely Ingrid (Missglamorazzi on YouTube) who has been raving about them recently so I decided to give them a go!  :)

Lip Butters in Original, Raspberry Rose, Caramel Cream and Vanilla & Macadamia

The lip butters come in four different flavors – Original, Raspberry Rosé, Caramel Cream and Vanilla & Macadamia. My absolute favorite one has to be the latter! I am sucker for anything vanilla scented so this is not a surprise to anyone! :) This stuff literally smells like heaven or as if I am chilling on a beach with a vanilla beverage on my hands!! Yumm! The Raspberry Rosé one smells like, well... raspberries and the Original one has just a plain fresh scent to it which is almost not noticeable. The Caramel Cream one, however, I just hate! The caramel smell is so strong and artificial that I cannot even open the lid without feeling nauseous! I would highly encourage you to go ahead and sniff this in the store before buying it cuz this is definitely not a scent for everyone’s taste.

The formulation of these lip butters is lovely! They all are enriched with Shea Butter and Almond Oil, which is a great prerequisite for super smooth and soft lippies! The Almond Oil and the Shea Butter are well known for their moisturizing and softening properties and let me tell you – they work great in this product! The lip butters are quite thick in consistency (because of the Shea butter) but when you apply them on the lips they start to melt and transform into a really nice moisturizing lip balm, which is not sticky at all. I have to admit that when you apply the product at first there can be a little waxy feel, but I promise you this goes away pretty fast. The lip butters don’t feel super heavy on the lips, which is great, but you can definitely notice how rich the formula is. Love this! These stuff really make your lips feel incredibly smooth and soft and the good thing is that the feel stays even when the butter is completely rubbed off your lips! What I have also noticed is that the lip butters wear really well with lipstick on top of them, which is always a plus! :)

Color wise the Nivea lip butters are all very pale and since they are lip butters they are completely sheer. One thing I noticed with these though is that they tend to leave a little bit of whitish cast on the lips. To be honest this doesn’t really bother me that much because I use these right before I go to bed or when I am just lounging around the house and I don’t really care how my lips look, I just want them to be nice and soft. If you want to wear them in public, however, that’s perfectly fine because the film is actually very settle and will just make your lips paler than they actually are. My skin is really pale, as you know, so I try to avoid nudes and pale shades because they wash me out. If you have darker skin these may look very pretty on you! :)

The packaging of these is okay. There is nothing special about it – it’s just a matte metallic tin. I like, however, that you can really easily remove the lid, which I found very difficult in other tinned lip balms (Vaseline for example). I am usually not crazy about the idea of having to dip my finger into the tin and scoop the product out, because this is not the most hygienic thing to do but, oh well… This won’t stop me of using them because I love what they do to my lips and I always make sure that I apply them with freshly clean hands! :))

In a nutshell, I recommend checking these out if you are looking for a nice hydrating and smoothing lip butter. These little babes have done miracles to my usually extremely dry lips and I am happy that I found them. If you are still not sure whether to purchase them or not, I think that for their price they are totally worth the investment! I purchased them through Amazon and here is the cheapest option I could find them:

  28. It's great to have a good lip gloss. The problem is that everytime I buy them I seem to lose them. They need to invent lip gloss with tracking devices...now there's an invention.

  35. These Nivea lip butters look so yummy! I'll definitely try them as they are so cute. What a shame that you didn't like the caramel one- it was the one that caught my attention! I'm not a fan of the tins though as dipping your fingers in isn't very hygienic- but it'll be great to use at home.


  36. So bad we don't have those beauties sold in Italy :(

  37. I love your blog

  38. I loved these lips butters, but I didn't like the Macadamia version! :D xx

  44. I definitely want to give this a try, the vanilla one specifically since I'm a sucker for vanilla too. Also, I'm curious how it will look on me because I don't really like when my lips are left looking pale or whiteish. I will try it out regardless though. Thanks for the awesome review.

  45. That raspberry one sounds so good. I like fruity sweet smelling balms. I'll have to wait and see if it makes it's way over here to South Korea.

  68. I'm so glad you did a review on these, because I've been waiting to hear a verdict on them. I think the vanilla would be my favorite, too. Glad to see that you use them as a balm to wear to bed. That's what I'm looking for, and it's hard to find something that will last as long as possible through the night. I'll definitely have to give it a try!
