Hey you all! I’m a huge lip balm lover. I love Maybelline lip balms like anything. Like I have tried almost every variant from Maybelline. Recently I thought of trying new lip balms. Winters are almost here so I thought to try Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer Norwegian Formula SPF 15. Norwegian formula was especially formulated for extreme weather conditions and it has SPF 15 too which is really amazing. But is it actually made for extreme winters? Read till the end to know about it.

My Experience With Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer Norwegian Formula SPF 15
I’m a huge lover of tinted lip balms but for a change I have actually stopped buying tinted lip balm these days. This lip moisturizer is super light on lips. You have to swipe it 3-4 pressed swipes for good moisturizing otherwise it feels like it will vanish or will be absorbed within 30 minutes. It is not tinted and free from any fragrance. This lip balm will provide you decent moisturizing effect but does not impress me enough to buy this again. It stays for maximum 3 hours without food(obviously) and you need to constantly re-apply it. The best thing is that it is not at all waxy and very comfortable. It feels like second skin and very is very comfortable. First few days I didn’t find any decent moisturizing from this but with continuous use (15 days) I’m quite happy with the results. As I mentioned above it gets absorbed in maximum 3 hours, so not at all for night sleep time (I prefer deep moisturization in night). It will be a good option for day time though.

Cons of Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer Norwegian Formula SPF 15

Will I Recommend Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer Norwegian Formula SPF 15
“Yes” for people with normal to dry lips and “No” for extra dry lips. I had huge expectation from “Norwegian formula” as it was especially designed for extreme weather condition. I think all these things are nothing but marketing gimmick. You will get many better options at 164 INR but if you are not a fan of tinted and waxy balms then definitely try this. Don’t get scared of the warning sign though as in many countries everything which not has to be consumed has such warning signs. every cosmetic or skincare product is poisonous for our guts to be honest. If you eat an toothpaste that is also poisonous right? It is just that some genuine brands do care for the customers. I’m not saying it’s free from chemicals, it definitely have chemicals but every product which is not natural and organic has chemicals in it.
