The packing of Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm is standard to most of the lip balms. It comes in a blue and white cardboard packaging, which has a plastic mold that houses the lip balm. The lip balm comes in a white twist-up stick, with a royal blue cover/cap. The name of the product is embossed on the cover/cap. The cap shuts with a click sound.


The texture of Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm is buttery smooth. It glides on the lips like a dream. I don’t think I’ve used any lip balm with such a smooth texture. And since the lip balm is thick and smooth, just one to two coats of it would suffice. And if you layer it too much, you would get a white cast on your lips.  Its texture could be a disadvantage in the summers, as there as possibilities that the lip balm could melt in high temperature. The fragrance is mild, but pleasant. I don’t think it would bother people with sensitive noses.

My Experience:

With plenty of fancy, colored lip balms available in the market, I was looking for something simple, something non-tinted that works well on dry and chapped lips. I had even read that using tinted lip balms could darken the lips. With the already dark lips that I have, I couldn’t take the risk of sleeping with a tinted lip balm on the lips.


It isn’t that I had never used non-tinted lip balms before. I did try my hands on a few, but didn’t find any of them moisturizing enough for my lips. While browsing through Amazon, I came across Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm. The pricing was super affordable, and the reviews were mostly positive. Now, after using this lip balm, I understand that why the customers loved this product.

Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm works wonders for me. The lip balm gets absorbed in the lips, leaving it silky smooth. Its wear time is also impressive. It stays for a good 3 hours during the day and 8 hours at night. In fact, it is the only lip balm that stayed put throughout the night on my lips. I do agree it feels a tad heavy on the lips, but that’s what makes it so moisturizing.

Summing Up:
