Just how many lip balms can a girl have, you ask? Way too many, perhaps. This one right here though -NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Balm- might be a game-changer.
My lips are chronically dry and as you guys know I’ve tried tons of different balms and lip treatments over the years, some of which worked better than others. Ever since I started using a tretinoin cream, I’ve noticed that my lips have become even more dry and wearing any sort of lipstick left them feeling very tight and uncomfortable. I’ve heard nothing but great things about NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Balm over the last couple of years, but I doubted that I’d be able to find anything that works better than Dior’s Creme de Rose. I finally picked up a jar of this balm and yes, in my humble opinion, it is indeed better than my HG balm, Dior’s Creme de Rose (whaaaatt??).
NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Balm ($19) is made in France and contains no parabens, with 78% of its ingredients being natural (Honey, Sunflower, Musk Rose and Almond oils, Shea Butter and Grapefruit essence). What makes this lip balm very unique is its texture; it’s very thick and quite waxy, with an extremely matte finish (which also means that your boyfriend can use this as well, without the fear of looking like he’s wearing lip-gloss ;) ). As you guys know, a lot lip balms have that glossy finish that leaves your lips feeling greasy- not this baby right here, and that’s what makes it different. I’ve been using this as a night treatment, and I think that it works the best as such. Because of the waxy formula, wearing this underneath a lipstick didn’t work for me, but it does work great overnight. Once I apply this only lips, I don’t have to keep reapplying in over and over again like I do with other balms- this stays on my lips for hours. After using this balm at night, I always wake up with smooth, chap-free lips that still feel nourished and soft.
So what about that hefty ($19) price tag? NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Balm is very much worth the price. I see this lasting me for a year (shelf life is 24 months). Because of this extremely thick and waxy formula, you only need a tiny dab; 90% of the time I actually apply too much of this stuff on my lips and have to massage the rest into my cuticles-that’s how concentrated this balm is.
Have any of you guys tried it?
