Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm

Today I’m reviewing the Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm.

Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm

This is my second or third tube of this lip balm. I’m usually using several lip balms at the same time – I then them stashed at my desk, in my bag, and by my bed. I clearly hate to have dry lips. Just like other Nivea products that I’ve tried, it does it’s job for an affordable price.

In terms of application, it goes on smooth and doesn’t get clumpy like some lip balms can get. I’ve tried lip balms like that in the past, and no matter how hard I try, there were always clumps. This Nivea lip balm definitely doesn’t have that problem.

This formula includes aloe, so it’s sure to leave your lips feeling moisturized. I found that it absorbed easily into my lips without leaving them feeling greasy. It adds no color to my lips, which I like. It also doesn’t have a scent either.

Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm is available at your local drugstore for $3 for a package of two. Considering how affordable it is and how well it works, I think it’s a steal.

What’s your favorite lip balm? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

EOS Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Mint Lip Balm

Today I’m reviewing EOS lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Mint. 

EOS Lip Balm

First off, I have to admit that I’ve never tried EOS lip balm. Ever. I’ve used lots of other brands, but never EOS. I’m a huge lip balm user. As a result, I was kind of excited to be able to give these two EOS lip balms a try.

I hate when my lips feel dry, so I feel like I’m applying it all the time. It’s probably more like every few hours though. I have one on my desk, one on my night stand, one in my bag – you get the idea. I currently have these two on my desk.

EOS Lip Balm

I’m huge fan of the scent of the Strawberry Sorbet EOS lip balm. It smells like strawberries without being too over the top or fake. Both of these lip balms go on clear and don’t provide much shine. I felt like they kept my lips feeling moisturized for a fair amount of time, a few hours or so. Of course I had to apply a bit more often if I was eating or drinking.

EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm

I typically don’t go for mint things (the smell and flavor is usually too strong for my liking), but I was pleasantly surprised that I like the Sweet Mint one. Maybe I need to give minty things – whatever they are – more of a chance.

The only thing that I didn’t like was the shape of the lip balm. I know it’s a signature for EOS,but it made putting it in my pocket a bit of a pain because it looked weird and bulgy. In addition, it was tough to get enough coverage in just a few swipes until the top of the lip balm was flatter. Really, those are just nitpicky things and overall I was happy with the actual formula of the lip balm.

EOS Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Mint Lip Balm can be found at your local drugstore for about $4 each or online Strawberry Sorbet or Sweet mint (affiliate links).

I received both of these EOS lip balms from for free in exchange for a free review. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting my blog, I appreciate it!
