Nivea Lip Butters

Hey everyone!

I was searching for these lip butters for months before they finally came to the Boots near me so when I saw them, I knew I had to get a couple. 
These lip butters come in 4 different flavors - Raspberry Rose, Caramel Cream, Vanilla and Original. I chose to get the Raspberry Rose and Caramel Cream because I thought that I would prefer them to the others. 

The lip butters cost £2.25 each and I brought them from boots. I love the size of the tins as they are perfect size to put in your handbag and take around with you. I also love the way that they are decorated as each individual tin has a little picture of what the flavor is meant to be (I think it looks quite cute)

There is 16.7g per tin, which I would say will last quite a long while, but it would definitely depend on how often you use it. For me, I would put it on whenever my lips looked dull or dry. I also put one of them on when I wake up and when I am going to bed. 

Both of the lip butters are very creamy and smooth to apply leaving a glossy finish and the bonus is that they are in no way greasy! It looks very thick in the pot but once applied to the lips it isn't thick at all. The Raspberry Rose lip butter smelt more like raspberry than rose but I did really like the smell nevertheless, when I put it on it tasted exactly how it smelt and a little bit like sweets, it left a baby pink colour to the lips. The Caramel Cream lip butter smelt like a buttery caramel with another underlying smell that I couldn't make out (can someone help me on this?), it tastes like caramel popcorn which I liked, and it leaves a whitey colour to the lips but I usually apply something afterwards anyway so it doesn't bother me too much.

I would definitely recommend both of these lip butters as they are very moisturizing and smooth and leave the lips feeling very soft. I am also hoping to buy the other ones to try out as I would probably like them as well!
Has anybody else tried these?
