Anyone that knows me, or knows me well will tell you that I am addicted to Carmex. I have one in my purse, on my night stand, in my car, and also in my desk. Where ever I am, you will fine Carmy. Well lately, I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with Carmy. I found myself using my Carmex very frequently, like multiple times within one hour. I don’t think any chapstick should  be used that frequently, your lips should not use moisture that quickly. Well I received in my ‘goody bag’ from Shecky’s NIVEA’s new product “A Kiss of Milk & Honey.” I was hesitant to try it out, but I must say I was impressed.

A Kiss of Milk & Honey Soothing Lip Care that boost’s the lips natural defense

“Let y our lips look and feel soft and smooth to make every kiss memorable. NIVEA Lip Care gives you beautiful lips that are ready to kiss and be kissed. NIVEA Lip Care products are formulated to provide hours of moistruization, so you are always ready to let a great kiss happen. NIVEA A Kiss of Milk & Honey uses nature’s best remedies to pamper and boost the natural defenses of your lips”

  • Natural milk protein and rich golden honey formula helps strengthen lips’ resistance to stay well hydrated and healthy looking
  • Seals in moisture
  • Intensively moisturizes so lips can stay healthy and hydrated

Directions: Apply to lips as needed

My Thoughts

At first I was a little skeptical because I have tried NIVEA’s lip products before, but I was completely sold on Carmex. The Milk and Honey lip balm goes on very smoothly. It gives your lips a nice coating that lasts for a very long time. I found myself reapplying  the Milk and Honey once every few hours. Your lips are left feeling very soft which is always a plus. The smell is a little different being that I am used to the cherry flavored smell from Carmex, but it is not unbearable. My main dislike is the packaging. I like to make sure my caps and tops are secure and I find the Milk and Honey’s cap is a little too loose. If you are looking for something to help soften your lips, this would be a great product, but if you are looking for something that helps repair extremely chapped lips, you may want something medicated.

On a scale of 1 to 5 I would rate this product a 3.5

This product retails for $2.99 at Walgreens

The Run Down

  • Tracee Ellis Ross attends her birthday party in Atlanta in a fab leopard print dress
  • Solange let’s us know that colorblocking is alive and well. She transitioned this spring/summer trend for the fall by adding a rust colored coat to the mix. Niceeeee *Fab voice*
  • Garcelle Beauvais looks regal in this sequins number
  • Although I am not crazy about the shoes with this ensemble, Angela sure did rock out her LBD with a black studded moto jacket

Who rocked it for you this weekend?
