This is a basic, wax-based tinted lip balm that does a good job of taking care of dry lips. It is housed in a convenient Chapstick-style container. Interestingly, this contains a couple of sunscreen agents, including avobenzone (listed by its chemical name butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane). However, because these are not listed as active, they shouldn't be relied on for sun protection. The ingredient neohesperidin dihydrochalcone is an artificial sweetener that contributes to this lip balm's flavor.
Gives you lips a juicy, fruity flavor and a subtle red color. Enriched with almond oil and vitamin E to help provide long-lasting moisturization. The result is soft, smooth, fruity-tasting lips with a subtle hint of red color.

Nivea is a globally known brand owned by Beiersdorf, the same company behind department-store brand La Prairie and drugstore mainstay Eucerin. Among those three brands, Nivea's product selection is the weakest (which isn't saying much, because none of these lines have much of anything to offer skin). For Nivea, uninspired formulas abound, presenting limited options unless you have normal to dry skin, and even those have exceptionally inelegant formulas. The enduring popularity of this line has more to do with advertising and perhaps tradition (it has been around a long time) than with what any researcher would consider state-of-the-art.
In mid-2010 Nivea re-launched most of their Visage (facial care) products on the web site drugstore.com. These products present a few well formulated, inexpensive options that are worth your attention.For more information about Nivea, owned by Beiersdorf, call (800) 227-4703 or visit www.nivea.com.
