Another french cult beauty love right here again from Escentual‘s 1/3 off french pharmacy throughout March. Like every other blogger I have found that I have a bit of a beauty crush on this product which is the Nuxe – Reve De Miel Honey Lip Balm. Its odd as I have never really been a lip balm lover i have used up tonnes of vaseline but I don’t think that really counts. I also brought the Lip moisturising stick to keep in my bag which i will do a post about soon.
So this stunning little glass was in my mind claiming some big things. Lip balm is lip balm my lips are all nasty from winter and the cold in general and any lip balm will be fine, well wrong thats what I was I had to eat my words and unfortunately I could also eat this too. It smells so good the honey is rich but not a sickly sweet smell. If you have used vaseline before which I am sure 99% of people have then you will know you are constantly having to re apply throughout the day as it kind of doesn’t sink in so you keep putting more on after drinking something or eating. This was a total new thing though i put this on in the evening just before bed first and wow, it went on easily i did one swipe across my top lip and the same on the bottom and rubbed my lips together. This balm created a sheen over my lips and although it didn’t sink in i felt like it was some how working as it didn’t budge i had my cup of tea, was still there and when I woke up in the morning although by then it had sunk in my lips were like new, no sore cracked or chapped lips. I was in disbelief to be honest because as i have said before I don’t normally go for really hyped up products although this cult classic is sold across the world every 28 seconds ! But I gave in to a sale because blogging has clearing made me a sucker for a sale of well, anything. This cost me £6.33 instead of £9.50 which is ok, not pricey but not cheap either I can see this 15g pot will last for what seems like forever. I find it interesting that it can be used or sores and light burns too so I may see how it works on my dry red patches.
I also found if you apply before your lipstick your lipstick holds better and lasts for longer ! I can’t wait to tell you about the handbag version I got too so keep a look out for that.
Is this a product you love i’d love to know why !?
