Hello everyone! How are you today? I feel as though I never ask you how you are, this should be a thing. Anyway, today I'm here to tell you about a lip balm/butter that I just really really love (spoilers this is a good 'un) and that is the Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream! I personally haven't seen anyone blog about this, however I know these have been out for a while so I'm only assuming when they first came out there were lots of blog posts over them! I discovered this beauty earlier on this year when my friend at Uni let me smell it and I bought it the next day - it was love at first sniff guys, not kidding.
The packaging is just a typical, normal tin.. Nothing overly special or anything, however the lid is secure which is always a plus, so you don't need to worry about it coming open when your flinging your bag about or anything (which I do most of the time.) In hygiene terms, obviously make sure your hands are reasonably clean before using it as you don't want to spread those nasty germs! I assume though that most people do keep their hands clean anyway but in case you don't.. Hand sanitiser is your new best friend!
The actual product itself in the tin is a muted caramel colour however when you apply it initially on your finger it will be white and blended in it goes clear and gives a lovely gloss to the lips.
The texture of this lip butter is so creamy and smooth, honestly it's so nice. It's thick, but not in a bad way if you get me. It's not as if your lips are drowning in a horrible sticky mess and you can feel it on your lips really bad as I personally HATE that feeling. Obviously, you can feel it on your lips but it's not uncomfortable, it's really nice and and makes your lips super soft. This lasts on the lips for a good couple of hours and afterwards still leaves your lips moisturised and soft.
Now, I said that I initially fell in love with this lip butter just because of the smell but guys. GUYS. This smells absolutely delicious, yummy scrummy, get in my belly kinda good. Honestly, if I could eat it, I would. It smells of caramel obviously, but it's so sweet and just smells gorgeous. The smell also isn't overpowering, it's just right in my opinion.
The only thing(s) I would say that aren't essentially bad, just things to watch out for are that if you put too much on at once, your lips will get a white tinge as this lip butter is very creamy so a little goes a long way and leaves your lips nice and glossy, not white! Also, I wouldn't recommend to use this as your only lip butter/moisturiser for your lips as a couple of times I used this overnight and when I woke up in the morning my lips felt tight and uncomfortable; not exactly dry, but they needed a lip balm/my trusty Vaseline on them ASAP.
So, I'd recommend to use this just as a day time lip butter for when your lips need a little moisturising or if you just want to put lip balm on! Overall I really do like this, it makes my lips moisturised, soft and glossy and the smell is just divine, and it's £2.10. How can I complain?
So, I hope you enjoyed reading this long winded post, probably doesn't need to be this detailed but details matter guys! Have you tried this or any other one from their range, did you like it? Or do you have any recommendations of lip butters you like? Let me know :)
Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)
