Best lip oil

Nivea

Nivea oils are popular mainly because of the attractive aromas presented in the series: coconut, raspberry, macadamia and vanilla, caramel, blueberry.

Main advantages:
  • Nice texture and aroma.
  • Careful care and protection of the skin of the lips.
  • Economical consumption.
Minuses:
  • Not everyone is comfortable to apply on the lips, even with a brush.

I love persistent lipstick, the result is terribly dry lips. The best salvation is Nivea lip oil. Apply before bedtime, and in the morning my lips are ready for lipstick testing again. My favorite is coconut.

To the note: how to choose a suitable balm

When choosing the best lip balm you need to look at its composition. If you intend to use lip protection in winter, make sure that among the ingredients are waxes and not glycerol and hyaluronic acid. Balsams with vegetable oils, vitamins and silicones are perfect for summer.

Lovers of sweet taste on the lips should pay attention to the fact that the composition was a sweetener saccharin sodium. If the lips are prone to flaking, you should abandon the balms with strong flavors or fragrances like citrus, mint, menthol. In the presence of herpes, a product with acyclovir, interferon and other antiviral ingredients will help out. And for UV protection, good balms with avobenzone, titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

Enjoy the shopping!
