Just when we thought the onslaught of new drugstore lip balms might be slowing down...nope. I'm still totally in love with my new-ish Nivea Olive Oil & Lemon lip balm and now this. I can't handle the temptation!
If you read beauty blogs written by bloggers outside of the US (which you totally should!) then you might already know about these lip butter tins from Nivea, which been available in the UK (and perhaps elsewhere) for a while now (FYI, Vaseline also makes lip balms in tins for the UK, and even super cute limited edition ones).
Well, I am delighted to tell you that the new Nivea Lip Butters are now in the US, and they're even on sale this week at CVS (more on that in a bit):

Smooth Kiss, Caramel Cream Kiss
I'm more of a tube/stick type of gal, but I will make exceptions when the flavors are interesting or unique. And these, my friends, fit the bill! I'm ELATED that Nivea didn't change the flavors for the US (these are the same flavors that are offered in the UK). Often times, it seems that flavors, shades, shade names and packaging of beauty products are changed to "fit an American audience" and, for me personally, sometimes this can mean things turn bland in the process. So hats off to Nivea for keeping things the same for us here in the states.
According to the Nivea website, these new Lip Butters contain shea butter and almond oil, and I believe Smooth Kiss is probably the uncented/unflavored version (but I could be wrong). I don't know about the other ingredients in these butters yet (I don't want to assume the ingredients are the same as in the UK version), but you can be sure that I'll be picking these up and reviewing them soon.
Which reminds me: these lip butters have landed at CVS and they're on sale starting tomorrow (1/6 - 1/12) for 2/$5. Since that's the sale price, I'm assuming these are probably around $3.50 at full price.
