Dear gals.. Back with another review.. this time on Nivea Pinkish Boost Lip balm.
I picked this on my last visit to Health & Glow store.. I was looking for a lip balm since winter was approaching then. When I saw this thought, it would work both as a lip balm, gloss and a sunscreen too since this has SPF 15 (3 â€“ in â€“ 1) .
What the product claims:
See below pic.
No specific ingredient list. But the product claims about some Pinkish Vitamin Complex and Ginseng in the label.
This comes Â in traditional lip balm packing wrapped in transparent bulb stuck to a pink carton paper.
Price: INR 175 for 10 ml.
Shelflife: 30 months
The way I see this lip balm:-
My first thought on this is that itâ€™s very innovative. A combo of lip balm, lip gloss and sunscreen in one product sounded fabulous.
The lazy soul inside me jumped with joy of not required to push myself to apply different products! 🙂
Itâ€™s a pretty baby pink..a little more on the glossy end and is liquidy, making it easy for application all over the lips. But the traditional lip guard packaging is what makes it a tough task.
I tried pressing a little of the tube so that the balm oozes out and applying it directly on the lip. It was a mess to apply with that wedge shaped head of this pack and also felt that it is not hygienic somehow.
From the next time, I take a little out on my hand like some paste out of the tube 😉 and apply it. That worked fine. Later I started its application using a lip brush which makes the job neat and easier.
I use this for everyday wear before setting out for office â€“ so SPF15 is something important for me and I sometimes wear this alone without any lipstick and I simply love the pink on me. I couldnâ€™t classify the fragrance which is a little strongâ€¦ into fruity or flowery.. itâ€™s a mix of both 😀
There are no shimmer particles and also the staying power isnâ€™t that great. Also its an average moisturizer only.. so if u have very dry/chapped lips.. this isnâ€™t ideal for you.
It didnâ€™t make my lips pink as claimed but did protect from the sun and I can see that they have not darkened due to sun or continuous lipstick usage. Ideal to use over pink lipsticks too.
I love this 3-in-1 lip balm, though it isnâ€™t the great in the market. Something worth in INR 175 for three different actions. See below swatch.
