Why I Love Nuxe Lip Balm (And You Should, Too!)

August 15, 2014

Phew, the search for ultimate lip balm is finally over. Nuxe Reve de Miel ($19) is the winner amongst the bazillion lip balms I’ve had tried in the past. My only concern is, why it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon.
Sadly, my lips are dry and chapped all year round and lip treatment products used to be always on top of my beauty shopping list; I just never found the one that worked as effectively as this product. And yes, I’ve tried various natural remedies -honey in particular-which isn’t as practical to use on daily basis.
Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm has a unique whipped texture and a pleasant citrus scent which I absolutely adore. The formula is quite thick since it’s an overnight intensive repair lip balm, but feels lightweight on the lips- it won’t stick to your bed sheets either (bonus points). The key ingredients are Meadowfoam seed, Jojoba seed, Greapeseed oils as well as Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
Before applying the product, I make sure that I buff away the flaky skin by scrubbing my lips with a soft toothbrush, and then I go ahead and apply a thick layer before I go to sleep. Just overnight it transforms my lips and by the next morning they look and feel nourished, supple and soft. I can’t even express how much I love this lip balm! 
I am looking forward to purchasing one in a stick form- it’d be a great addition to my handbag essentials set.
