Nivea A Kiss of Strawberry Fruity Lip Care SPF 4


I bought this last year, but apparently but it into my winter coat and forgot about it. Just recently I brought it out again because I started using my coat again. I bought this sometime after using the Milk and Honey one and being curious about this one. I paid about $2.99 for it.

Nivea Claims:
Juicy Strawberry Flavor
Subtle Red Sheen
Long Lasting Moisturization

Scent:
Fake Strawberry. It's ok. Not that great.

Moisturization:
It's ok for summer or if your lips aren't dry. But in winter or if you have dry lips...nada. It's also not as smoothing as I would like it to be. Not long lasting either.

Flavor:
What Flavor? I don't taste nothing!

Packaging:
It's aight, but I miss the bumble bees my other one had.

Tint:
Again it's just aight. Not too noticeable and not really super flattering to my skin.

Ingredients:
Active ingredients: Avobenzone, Octinoxate
Inactive ingredients: Polyisobutene, Octyldodecanol, Ricinus Communis (Castor)

Overall it's average. I noticed that since I've had mine they've updated the packaging and boosted the SPF to 10. I don't know if they changed the ingredients. Overall, its just very average.
