NUXE Rêve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm | Love It or Hate It?

NUXE Rêve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm | Love It or Hate It?

Ever since I started using French Pharmacie skincare I was so intrigued by the Nuxe Rêve De Miel range, especially the Lip Balm that came in a glass pot. It seemed to be the most popular lip balm with bloggers and YouTubers alike, so when I spotted a NUXE counter on my recent trip to Munich, the Rêve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm was the first item that went in my cart!

My lips are quite dry and so I keep them slathered with lip balm all day. Now I’m quite a picky person when it comes to lip balms…I’ve tried hundreds and love only one – The Nivea Lip Butter… so needless to say the Nuxe Lip Balm had to live up to some serious standards and expectations!

The Nuxe Rêve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing lip balm comes in a glass pot that contains 15 gm of product. It costs about €13 (Rs. 1000/-) and I know that might seem like a very steep price to pay for a lip balm, but if you love it, it is going to be the product that will be the answer to all your dry/chapped lip issues.

Honestly, for me, the Nuxe Reve De Miel was unlike any other lip butter or lip balm that I have ever tried. The very first thing I noticed was how thick and buttery the texture is.

The consistency is such that it has no bounce or oily slickness to it whatsoever…also it has no shine or gloss. It is, in fact, a very grainy texture balm that is completely matte, making it perfect for layering under lipsticks. You only need the tiniest amount of it because if you apply too much, it will end up collecting and bunching up around your mouth.

 

The second thing I noticed right off the bat was the smell and oh my word – I LOVE IT! To describe it in 3 words – it is Honey, Lemon and Orange…just divine <3

Moving on, is it the miracle worker I was expecting it to be…Do I Love It or Hate It?

 

Well, sadly it wasn’t what I was expecting 🙁

 

I loved this balm for the first couple of days I used it, but somehow after a few weeks, I ended up getting a very bad reaction to it leading to the worst dry lips I’ve ever experienced in my life. Now I don’t know why or how that came to be, but I’m quite sure there is something here in the ingredients that does not agree with me…such a SHAME 🙁

 

Anyways, I stopped using the Reve De Miel for a while and now that my lips are back to being healthy again I will surely be trying NUXE Rêve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm once again as I’m ready to give up on it just yet! Who knows, maybe it was something entirely else that triggered the reaction in the first place and I might fall in love with it this time around 🙂
