Nivea Vitamin Shake Lip Balm Review
Guest Post Written by Sristi (Medium Skin Tone, Normal to Oily Skin)
I am a self confessed lip balm addict. I have a minimum of 4-5 lip balms at any given time. Mom thinks I’m crazy. Boyfriend thinks I’m crazy. But I’m sure you guys would understand, right? So the first thing that struck me about this lip balm was its name – VITAMIN SHAKE! Quite intriguing right? And then it’s from Nivea and we all know how good Nivea lip balms are. And finally, the flavor is Cranberry and Raspberry ( I love Bacardi’s Cranberry Breezer, btw)! I simply had to have it! :D (Editors Note: Just a thought. Imagine alcohol flavoured lip balms. Like Mint Mojito Lip Balm, Margarita Lip Balm, Bacardi Breezer Lip Balm!)
Do you wish to nourish and protect your lips while enjoying a luscious flavor and fragrance?
The innovative marbled formula of Nivea Vitamin Shake combines intensive moisture and a blend of fruit extracts with vitamins for a smooth and nourished look with a light fruity tint.
- Intensive moisture with vitamins C and E and Pro-vitamin B5.
- Natural pinkish tint and subtle flavor blend of Cranberry and Raspberry.
- SPF 10 with protection from UVA and UVB rays.
- Skin compatibility and dermatologically tested.
The Nivea Vitamin Shake lip balm comes in the similar cute stubby packaging of Nivea lip balms. Its pink and red in color and shuts firmly with a click. The smell of the lip balm is absolutely yummy! It’s not overpowering but is a subtle, fruity blend of cranberry and raspberry. One of the most important things that I look for in my lip balms is the smell. And this one scores high in that area.
Another major attention grabber of this lip balm is how it looks in the stick form. It has this marbled finish. You know, like little swirls of pink and red. Its super pretty and I have never seen anything like it!
On application, it has a very light, almost transparent, pinkish tint. The texture is just right and it glides on smoothly on the lips. The only problem that I have noticed with Nivea lip balms is that they melt in this hot weather. So you need to store it in the fridge or else if you try and apply the lip balm directly on the lips, it might break. So yeah, this baby is a little fragile during summers!
Nivea lip balms have great staying power and so does this one. It keeps my lips moisturized for a good 4-4.5 hours after which I feel the need to re-apply. It makes my lips feel smooth and the fragrance lingers on for a while! Another added advantage of this lip balm is that it has SPF 10.
One thing that I’d like to mention is that I don’t really know if it’s available in the retail stores. I purchased it from www.jabong.com. That online store has become my favorite these days! Delivery in 2 days everytime! Brilliant!
