The pursuit of...Soft winter lips

I haven't done a beauty review in a while, so I thought I would share these gorgeous little lip care beauties that I purchased from Boot's with you.

As soon as the weather changes, I always see the effects on my lips and they were feeling a little dry and tight over the last few weeks.
I normally always have a Carmex or Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Balm in my make-up bag in case of emergencies but had run whilst perusing the shelves in Boot's I came across these Lip Butter's from Nivea (above).

Just like the cute Vaseline Lip Therapy tins, these are roughly the same size, but more of a flatter shape and matte feel than the rounded, shiny tins from Vaseline.

The range has 4 products:

  • Lip Butter Original (Plain Blue tin)
  • Lip Butter Raspberry Rosé (Pink tin with raspberry's)
  • Lip Butter Caramel Cream (Beige tin with caramel sweets)
  • Lip Butter Vanilla & Macadamia (Cream tin with Vanilla pod and Macadamia nut)

After much deliberation (!) I bought the Raspberry Rosé and Vanilla and Macadamia (below):

As soon as you remove the lid from the Raspberry Rose you are hit with the gorgeous sweet raspberry smells like sweets! It has a pretty, pastel bubblegum pink colour and the texture is velvety smooth.  It is quite a thick creamy consistency and makes my lips feel plumper and smooth.
It is a great base for lipstick I've found.

The Vanilla & Macadamia smells good enough to eat too!  It actually has a cocoa butter smell, with a subtle hint of vanilla.
The consistency of this one is not as creamy as the one above, however it is still more of a butter than a Petroleum Jelly texture.

These Nivea Lip Butters are a winner for me as they are so nourishing and moisturising.
I have never been a fan of the Vaseline Lip Therapy range as I have found that they are not long lasting, they are too greasy and also I think they become addictive to many people do you see with their tins of Vaseline glued to their hands, constantly re-applying because the staying power is non-existent?!

As I normally wear lipstick or lip-gloss during the day, these Lip Butters are perfect in the evening for when I have removed my make-up but still want to have gorgeous soft lips.  I find that one application is enough for a couple of hours (I actually haven't timed it but it feels that long....or longer!) and I normally just re-apply before bed.

At approximately £2.10 per tin, these are a good little beauty bargain.

Love, Ivy George x
