I've been using lip balm since I can remember and its slowly grown into an undeniable obsession ( I won't even attempt to justify my draw full of little tubs and tubes of the stuff!) and I can't leave the house without throwing some form of lip balm in my bag (or several - i like choices!). So it's safe to say that I've tried many of the balms the UK has to offer. Though once Nuxe's Rève de Miel lip balm landed on my doorstep, I've been more addicted than ever. It is, without a doubt, the best lip balm I've tried...ever!
When i first heard about Nuxe Rève de Miel i wasn't sure if it could live up to the amazing reviews and high price tag, though eventually i caved and decided to give it a go - and obviously i'm so glad that i did.
Unlike many lip balms, it doesn't just coat the lips making them feel soft until it quickly wears off and leaves them more dehydrated than before, but actually continues to hydrate your lips hours after application.
The matte finish of the balm is also something that has quickly made it my all time favorite. It leaves your lips looking natural (so you can avoid the 'I just layered a whole pot full of shiny balm onto my lips' look) and provides the perfect base for lipstick. I'm also a huge fan of the sweet and refreshing citrus scent (something between oranges and lemons).
This little pot of miracles now sits in prime position on my bedside table, and I think that's where it's going to stay for a very long time.
Nuxe Rève de Miel lip balm retails for £9.50 (worth every penny) and is available at Feelunique, Marks and Spenser and Space NK.
