Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm Review

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

A few days ago I took to Twitter and asked for a scent description of the now infamous Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm. I had read and heard all about how wondrous this lip balm was but was forever off put due to one key ingredient - Honey! Yes Honey is wonderfully moisturising and works wonders on the skin but the scent is one thing I can not get on board with. I kid you not when I say that the fragrance of Honey turns my stomach and makes me gag - a little extreme but there you have it. This is why I have not as much as sniffed the Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm in store.

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

Well on Twitter everyone who answered my bizarre call reassured me that Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm is not a honey based fragranced product rather it reminds some of Terry's Chocolate Orange (yum) or Lemon Curd (double yum). Oddly it reminds me off both, sometimes when I apply it I can detect a whiff of orange then at other points it certainly is lemony. To be safe let's just label it as a citrus based fragrance - it does contain Grapefruit Essence but it doesn't ring true in terms of scent. One last note about the scent is that once on the lips it is really mild, you can't taste it nor constantly smell it.

"An intensely hydrating lip balm that will protect and repair dry, sore and chapped lips.French skincare brand Nuxe road-tested this ultra-hydrating lip balm in Canada to ensure that its unique blend of nourishing plant extracts and oils could protect delicate lip skin against extreme cold and intense environmental stresses. Their winning formula - which has gained Rève Miel Lip Balm a cult beauty following the world over - comprises honey, plant oils, shea butter and grapefruit essence to instantly protect, repair and restore comfort to chapped lips."

Fragrance aside the first thing you will notice about Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm is the texture, it is very, very thick, silky soft and a little sticky. It reminds me of a typical silicone based primer in terms of consistency but as soon as it is applied to the lips it melts into the skin, gone is the stickiness and heaviness for that matter. The lips instantly feel moisturised and wrapped in a barrier of hydration, ready for anything the elements may throw your way. Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm is easily one of the longest wearing lip balms I have ever tried, one application is still on my lips three to four hours later. From the first application my lips felt soothed and softer, I have applied this at night, two nights in a row and all signs of dry and chapped skin has disappeared. No it isn't medicated but it does a stellar job of healing cracked lips.

In a nut shell Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm is beautifully scented and worth the hype. 
If you need a heavy duty lip balm splurge on this, you will not regret it.

  6. I've always thought it smells a bit herby, whereas my boyfriend insists it smells like lemons. I think it depends on the types of smells your familiar with as to what it smells like, maybe haha. It is a lovely balm though, it lasts forever so you definitely get your money's worth! x

  11. I've not discovered a better lipbalm than this.
    This is perfect at hydrating my lips but it is a shame that it is in a pot which is less conveniant.
    I love the buttery texture of this and doesn't have that shiny glossy finish.

  18. This is a HOLY GRAIL item for me. I have eczema on my lip line and this got rid of it and it just changed it life. I can wear lipstick every day without my lips being irritated and flaring up.

  31. Isn't it great!? I've almost finished my second pot and I have a backup waiting for me too! There was a 1/3rd off French Pharmacy at Feel Unique recently, so I made sure to stock up ;) xx

  32. I feel like I am driving my friends mad with my constant ravings about this lip balm. The price can seem a little steep but this little pot of wonder is worth every penny! So far I have barely made a dent in mine after 6 months of use, and I love it so much I decided to get another one so I am never without it!
    If you are considering trying out, you really need to take the plunge.. you will not regret it!

  33. Totally went out and bought this straight away! And I love it! The smell is delicious as you say and it is the most moisturising of any lip balm I've tried and works brilliantly under lipsticks. Thanks for the review.

  34. I JUST got my hands on this yesterday - it's been sold out EVERYWHERE in Australia - and I am beyond excited. Definitely agree on the lemon curd smell.
