As lip balms go, the Nivea Fruity Shine lip balm is a rather good one and it is also reasonably priced. It got me out of my chapped lips phase with regular use after cleansing my face. This balm was more than enough as long as I lived in a humid climate. However, it will not do for really dry weather. It is a lighter alternative to Vaseline if you want to treat dry lips and it gives the lips a hint of colour depending on the variety you buy.
The balm also has a slightly sweet taste and a fruity fragrance. I’ve tried the strawberry, cherry and pomegranate. I found that the cherry and pomegranate colours suited my dark skin much better than the strawberry.
It is quite glossy for a lip balm and I’ve often used it as a gloss over lipsticks either to give them a shine or to give them a different hue. For example, I use the cherry one over a brown or purple lipstick to give it a reddish hue.
