My lip balm staple.

Hello everyone. So today I'm going to be talking about my lip balm staple. Now I've been wanting to share this for a while but I just haven't gotten round to actually writing about this. Although I have to admit to you all that, during 2015 so far I've been so motivated to write my blog so far. Now I've had this lip balm for months probably about 4 now but it's amazing. I don't know why I have never tried it before because it is a lip saviour. It is a holy grail products for my lips. So now that I've babbled briefly about this product, I should probably tell you what it is, although the photo does give it away. It is the Nivea Essential Care lip balm and it is honestly one of the best. I wear this throughout the day but also if my lips are super dry or cracked, I always put this on before bed and then in a morning I wake up and my lips are soft and repaired and ready to face the world. I couldn't recommend this lip balm enough.

I love how simple the packaging is for this product, blue and white and of course that it is in stick form. I have had lots of tins of lip balms but when I think about it. It really isn't hygienic. I mean using the same stick probably isn't either but at least on the stick you only have your lips bacteria and you can wipe it, as with a tin you are putting your fingers bacteria in it. I love how easily this is to apply and the formula is great, not too thick and not too thin. It isn't sticky either, which is great. This lip balm has added ingredients such as Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter, which help to soften and repair your lips. This lip balm is super affordable too. I think I got mine on offer for a £1, as Boots normally do some sort of offer on Nivea products but I think the normal price is about £1.65.

As you can see, I've had this product 4 months now and it hasn't got much left. It may look like it has a lot but if you compare it to the size that it was when I bought it, then you can tell a big difference. You get a lot of product and it last a considerable amount of time, therefore it is totally worth the money.

From a person who suffers with dry, chapped lips, this product is perfect and is a lip saviour. It helps me to get my normal lips. Nivea do lots of other lip balms in their range, which I haven't tried except for the pearl 'n' shine one, which I wasn't too keen on.  I will, however, definitely be repurchasing this product when it runs out.

What is your lip balm staple? Have you tried the Nivea Essential Care lip balm?
