Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm - is it worth the hype?
After shelling out £10.00 for this infamous lip balm, I really put it to the test to see if it did live up to the hype. Everywhere I look, and every blog I read seems to praise this lip balm like no other! So I definitely had to give it a go for myself.
It has a very thick consistency, it's almost like the same texture as smooth peanut butter! Sometimes mine has little bits of "grit" in it, I'm not sure if they are all like that or if it's just me. It smooths into your lips well and definitely feels really nourishing. I have to be careful not to apply too much of the lip balm as it can make you look like you have the dreaded concealer lips at times. It has a lovely scent, I have heard some bloggers describe the scent as chocolate orange but honestly I cannot detect any hint of chocolate. To me it smells like a lovely fresh, citrusy scent.
My preferred time to put this on is at night, when I don't care how it looks and I can slather it on to no end! And I have to be totally honest, my lips haven't been in as good condition for a long time. I was having problems with dynes and flakiness but not any more.
So is it worth the hype? Well it certainly sorted out my dry chapped lips - it definitely worked for me. It just kills me to pay this much for a lip balm. I did use up the stick version of the Nuxe lip balm which I liked (and is a bit cheaper) but it didn't nearly give me as good results as this little pot does. My other favourite brand for lip balms is Burts Bees, which I still do love and they are more reasonably priced. So I think I will save this Nuxe pot as more of a treatment lip balm rather than an every day sort of thing!
If you suffer from dry, chapped lips, this will work a treat for you. But it is quite a luxury buy in my opinion, so I don't think it is a "must have" lip balm but if you want to treat yourself to it, do!
