This is a basic, wax-based lip balm that does a good job of taking care of dry lips. It is housed in a convenient Chapstick-style container. It is irritant-free and a reliable, inexpensive option.

A rich, pampering formula enriched with beeswax and shea butter to provide lips with long-lasting moisturization. Creamy, non-waxy formula glides easily onto lips. The result is soft, healthy and beautiful looking lips for hours.

Microcrystalline Wax, Octyldodecanol, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cetyl Palmitate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Myristyl Myristate, Vp Hexadecene Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vp/Eicosene Copolymer, Cocoglycerides, Pentaerithrityl Tetraisostearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), C20-40 Alkyl Stearate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Panthenol, Beeswax, Water, Fragrance

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.

    Oddest Lip Balm Ever
    • This lip balm feels somewhat promising going on the lips. The tube is convenient and easy to use. On application it feels very thick and creates a strange coating on the lips. However, it tends to not stay on the lips and transfers easily to cups, etc. Oddly, as it wears off, it does not leave your lips feeling moisturized. It's like there was nothing on your lips at all and does nothing to heal dry, parched, chapped lips. I much prefer the Touch of Milk & Honey or Paula's Lip & Body Balm.
