Something drew me to this Nivea Lip Care A Kiss of Olive Oil + Lemon lip balm flavor when I spotted it in a store recently - could it have been a subliminal reminder of the Lemon Roasted Chicken or Lemon desserts I often love?
I was certainly intrigued by how a more "savory" flavor/ingredient combination would work in a lip balm, and more importantly on the lips - and I'm so glad I took a chance!
I love using Olive Oil-based products for overall skin dryness, and this certainly was a welcome ingredient in this lip balm. The balm stick itself even has a very light green olive color (matching the outer case) which I thought was a nice little detail.

Even with the presence of the oil, as soon as I applied it, my lips felt smooth and slightly slick to the touch, but very hydrated without any greasiness. Seconds later it was fully absorbed and provided a perfect base for my other lip color products. I also loved using this as a nighttime lip conditioning treatment and woke up with soft, supple lips in the morning.
The scent/taste is more on the "green/herbaceous" side of olives/olive oil than lemon, but I could still detect some subtle crisp lemon notes, which was very nice. Honestly, I think this is 1 of the best performing Nivea lip balms in their line up, and it's my current daily go-to lip balm.
Stock up on these when you're able to find them in drugstores/mass merchants (they didn't seem to be in many stores in my area) or, better yet, head on over to drugstore.com and order today! - RLB
