On my weekly grocery shopping, I picked up a new lip product from Countdown. It was on special and I just can’t resist stuff that are on special! It is usually $5.49 and is currently on special right now for $4. This is their new flavour and I just can’t say no to pink and raspberries!
The Verdict (aka. short version): I loved the smell in the tin, the rich formula in which I could use just before bed to combat the dry lips feeling in the morning. Though, because of the rich formula, it does feel a little heavy on the lips so probably something to keep in mind if you don’t enjoy that feeling.
First Impressions: It has a really lovely light scent and is a dream to use. It has no obvious colour other than what is in the tin. I’ve only used it a couple of times since purchasing it…. yesterday, so don’t have anything deep to say about it. But will definitely let you know after using it for a month or so. From the first use, it feels quite light on the lips and the scent is really mainly in the tin. Definitely a little goes a long way if you don’t enjoy that strong product feeling/build up on your lips.
I did happen to use it just before bed and in the morning, my lips felt very moisterized and was not dry. Not that it usually is because I use Maybelline Baby Lips in Antioxident Berry but I think with this Nivea Butter, it is much more moisterizing and I can definitely feel the difference! The website mentions that it leaves “a soft shine of color… and a silky gloss” on your lips but for me, I could only see the gloss. Not a biggie for me as I see it as something extra to make my lips not so dry~feeling.
Last Words: So it is somewhat a little heavy (as described on the website as a “rich formula” but not too much that you feel a difference. I think you would only feel a difference if you were constantly licking your lips or rubbing them together. I would like it a lot more if it were in stick form but the little tin is pretty cute and could be re-used when it’s finished!
Available in other flavours (Unscented, Caramel Cream and Vanilla and Macademia) at Countdown supermarkets and online here via Countdown online shopping.
