My Experience With Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm:
The lip balm comes in a twist up case with a blue cap. The packaging is extremely classy and I love carrying it around in my wallet every time. The lip balm looks like a white stick, though it is absolutely transparent when swatched over hands and lips. The most lovable fact about this lip balm is that it doesn't give a whitish cast on my lips even when I apply it heavily.
The texture is absolutely creamy and slightly waxy. It glides over the lips like butter. It has a slight orange kind of smell which you will love. It won't bother even the sensitive nose. The balm keeps my lips moisturized for a good 4 hours and after that I feel the need to reapply it again. It won't survive heavy meals but it will be enough for little sips. What I noticed is that, the balm won't heal your already chapped lips but it is effective enough to prevent it. It is preferable to apply on recently exfoliated lips. The lip balm doesn't have SPF and therefore it is advisable to use it after dusk. It is definitely a great option for an overnight lip balm. Overall, the product isn't great but is okay.

Diva Likes Rating:
Nivea is no doubt a good brand with caring products. I read somewhere that you should not use SPF products at night because it has too many chemicals involved. So I often use this lip balm before hitting the bed as it keeps my lips moisturized throughout the night. Overall, it is a decent lip balm you would love to have.
