Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Review - Sweetaholic Beauty

Come winter, my lips have a mind of their own. Chapped and painful, not a lot seems to help keep them under control. Whilst I usually take good care of my lips, when it gets too cold nothing really helps keep the dry patches and lip splits that plague me during the winter months at bay.

I had been researching and finally come across the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm. The internet is crawling with positive reviews for this baby, so I decided to pick it up.

The packaging probably isn't for everyone; but I don't mind it whatsoever. Packed into a little glass tub, you do need to stick your finger into the product to actually use it.

Upon opening the tub, I'm greeted with a very subtle citrus scent. I find it subtle enough that I don't really notice it once I apply it. The lip balm is more of a salve, and is very thick. I only need the smallest amount to spread on my lips. Once applied to my fingertip, I realised it has a bit of a smooth peanut butter texture - which is a weird way to describe a lip balm, but probably the best way I could describe it. It does have a little bit of a grainy feeling once applied to my lips, but I found that once you start applying, the balm melts into your lips easily and the grainy feeling goes away.

After using this for a few weeks, I can honestly say I'm pleased with the results. As the balm is rather thick and heavy on the lips, I prefer to use this directly before bed so that my lips are nice and supple by the morning. I also found that if I use this before applying a matte lipstick, my lips are far less damaged by the end of the day. 

After spending the last few winters with incredibly dry and chapped lips - to the point where they would indeed bleed - using the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm has really changed my life. Whilst I still get a few small dry patches, it's nothing that a quick lip scrub won't fix up.

I'm really impressed with the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm. Having read so many positive reviews on this balm, I was trying not to get my hopes up too high. I'm pretty happy that not only did the lip balm meet my expectations of being a nice lip balm, but exceeded them by being my new Holy Grail balm. Whilst this is a pretty expensive product at $19.95, it's totally worth every cent.

Have you tried the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm before? If so, what are your thoughts? Do you have a Holy Grail balm?

  1. Love this lip balm! It lasts so long on me as well which is a surprising change since I'm a lip biter and lip balms always just end up being eaten away! I wasn't too keen on the packaging but after my friend (who suffers from dry lips) gave it the thumbs up I couldn't resist it at the last 40% sale at Priceline.

  3. Sounds like a good balm to try.
    I'm that kind of person who always want to have lip balm, and I love evrything you've described about this product. Except the fact that I have to use my fingers to apply it, I guess I'll prefer if it can be applied directly to lips like the one on sticks :)

    Have a lovely day, hun

  4. This sounds amazing! I've been meaning to pick it up for a while but I just love Lanolips so much at the moment I definitely don't need it. I'm totally loving this LE packaging too xx

  5. Yay, I'm so glad you like it! I was a bit iffy about it at first because I didn't understand the texture (you described it perfectly as smooth peanut butter, haha). But after some trial and error, this is truly probably my favourite lip balm. I use it nightly and it keeps my lips in good condition, especially during the drying winter months :)

  6. I actually bought a bottle of the Nuxe oil which can be used on face body and hair.. and it remains unopened LOL I have so much stuff to try and get through first before I get to it. But from the sounds of this review, the product I have at home sounds promising ! DF xox

  8. The consistency sounds a bit like paw paw ointment, which I love. I might give it a go once I'm done with my EOS lip balms :)
