Guess what lovelies?
We have new lipbalms in town. *smiles*
I picked these - Nivea Pure & Natural in Olive & Lemon, and Camomile & Calendula - up sometime back from Singapore (Changi, to be precise), but never quite had the heart to use them for fear they would run out. And then a few weeks back I spotted them on our Malaysian aisles.
What did I do? Crack them open and swiped them on, of course!
Olive & Lemon: I'm not one for lemony scents, but I must say this one smells delightfully fresh, without the tangy burst that I dislike so much.
Camomile & Calendula: I'm sorry, but the scent is rather faint (to me anyway), so I won't be able to describe the scent to you. My rather useless nose isn't able to pick it up! Boo.
Texture wise, they feel very similar to the other Nivea lipbalms (ala Pink Grapefruit) I love so much. They're sheer (with no tint of course, otherwise you'll have green lips) but leave a slight gloss on my lips. Nice.
One wee little issue. They do turn a little hard when left in a cold COLD room. Like the icebox I work in. (I kid you not. My phone thaws when I go out for lunch!) It gets a little hard to apply then.
They each cost about RM9.90, but you can get them for about RM7ish on sale (which is often enough). These two I like enough to repurchase.
Have you tried them?
PS: Nivea, now will you PLEASE bring Pink Grapefruit back already? Thank you.
