Is it too early to think about your New Year’s Kiss? It’s never a bad time to think about romance in my book. The product review I bring you this week has a bonus. I get an opportunity to offer a Nivea “New Year’s Kiss Prep Kit”to a lucky winner! Keep reading to get the details.
A classic element of romance is of course a kiss. The Nivea’s line of lip care products with the teaser title of “A Kiss Of” has fun and practical lip care option. From smooth and fruity, to repairing moisture, they have your soft lips covered for that perfect kiss.
What makes this product different?
The twist on “A Kiss of…” makes it easy to use for all their different options. The timing for this review is perfect since my skin is really letting me know it’s the second week of November. Dry and dehydrated from the cold outdoor workouts, my lips apparently need some attention.
First one I opened was the Berry Swirl. Pretty color and great light scent. I’m loving the non-greasy feel and how it glides on super easy. It feels almost too decadent for lip care.
The packaging is clear and makes it easy to figure out which one would help with various issues. Dry and sensitive lips? Recovery is the way to go. Need extra hydration? Pick up the Smoothness.
Most of the Nivea lip care had an SPF of 10 or 15, which helps since I tend to forget about sunscreen in general during the winter.
I’m surrounded in pretty packaging when my husband walks into my own personal lip care testing party, asking what I’m up to now. Conveniently he was complaining his lips are chapped so I didn’t even have to convince him to give one a try. I handed over the Recovery Medicated and told him to get back to me with a verdict. This is a man that has a lip balm in his pocket at all times. Along with a handkerchief. What can I say? He’s old-fashioned that way.
His report? His lips stopped hurting immediately and it wasn’t greasy or tacky. He was able to make it through dinner and a glass of wine before feeling like he needed to re-apply. All thumbs up from the testosterone corner.
Next up for me was the Smoothness, meant for hydration and with SPF 10. This will be going in my purse. The name says it all. Not only does it go on smooth but after a few minutes, my lips seemed to soak it up. This may not be a good sign for the natural hydration of my lips, but it left a nice feeling of moisture that is still going strong.
So now that you know how to make your lips kissable soft, what will you do? Kiss in front of millions, of course!
