It seems strange for me to be writing about such heavy duty lip balm whilst it's currently 22C outside, but what the hell, I fancy joining in with the blogger hype on this one!
I've wanted this lip balm for such a long time and forced myself not to buy it until I had used up some others in my stash first. Now given that I'm a serial lip balm junkie/hoarder, this was no easy task and I've come to realise that it takes me on average 6-7 months to use up a full pot or stick of ONE lip balm! However, the day finally came and I even took advantage of picking it up whilst it was in the last Escentual sale.
So was it worth the wait? Oh yes! The Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm is everything I wanted it to be and more. It's buttery thick (has ingredients such as Honey, Shea Butter, Calendula and Almond Oil in it), smells and tastes great (sort of sweet and citrusy) and moisturises my notoriously dry lips like no other lip balm I've used before. I usually apply a small amount before going to bed every night and my lips are incredibly soft and smooth like magic when I wake up. The lip balm itself goes on rather matte without any gloss or shine, so it's a good match for using underneath products like matte lipsticks during the day as well.
As you can see from the photo, I've created a dip in the pot already but I have been using it since the end of March on an almost daily basis, so I imagine it will last for many more months to come. I seriously can't recommend this enough and needless to say, it's gone straight onto my Holy Grail list!
Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (15ml, £9.50) is available from various stockists including Space NK.
