Nuxe Reve de Miel Lipbalm

So, initially, I HATED this lip balm which was a complete shock to me, I'd been so excited to try it after constantly reading amazing reviews and I am a huge lip balm hoarder, partly the reason it's taken me so long to try it, is that I literally have so many lip balms that spending £10 on one just seemed a bit crazy, so anyway, yes, The first few days of trying this I was mega disappointed, the day after using this for the first time, my lips felt intensely dry and started flaking and I couldn't work out why, looking back, I now realise that it was probably due to the cold weather and may just have been the change in products and my lips getting used to it but it meant that there wasn't a whole lot of love from me with this but I persevered and now I have a huge crush on it, I'm constantly shoving it under peoples nose (friends and family, not random people....yet!) and telling them to smell it, it's delish, like chocolate-y, vanilla-y orange - literal heaven.

I also couldn't get used to the texture of this initially, it's very rich and almost sits on top of the lips for a while before it sinks in, but again, now, I love that aspect of it, it really feels like it's giving my lips a good dose of moisture, I only tend to use this now two to three times a day whereas with other balms, I reapply way more frequently than that, normally hourly. This comes in a nice chunky frosted glass pot with a white lid with the Nuxe branding on the glass, it's also quite a big pot so I have a feeling it will last for a while. It feels quite solid in the pot as well initially, you kind of have to work it and apply quite a lot of product to get it to work.

I know that there's a stick version of this that I want to try as well, it's a little cheaper and I'm intrigued as to whether it will be as good as this because I think it will be difficult to replicate the buttery balm like texture of this one. I picked my version of this up in Space NK for £9.50 but I also just received one in a French Pharmacy giveaway from the lovely Liana  (post to come soon on that giveaway) so I will be keeping one in my bag and one in the car for emergencies.

What are your thoughts on this one?

  2. I've been itching to try this, it sounds so good. Every lip balm I've tried to date has been a complete disappointment so I'm keen to find something that really works, hopefully this is it.
