Nuxe Reve de Miel: Review

So Nuxe Reve de Miel has been causing a bit of  stir in the old blogging world – and if there’s anything that I’m a sucker for then it’s blogger hype! So I popped along to my local Space NK and treated myself to a pot of this – to see what all the fuss is about.

The texture of this really is nothing like any other lip balm I’ve tried – it’s really thick, with a slightly gritty feeling, but not so much that it feels like a scrub.
It’s creamy – but the texture feels matte – if that makes sense. I’m trying to think of a food product to liken it too, and struggling. But to use, you scoop out a little chunk on your finger and apply – you do need to scoop because it doesn’t really melt to body temperature or anything. Then if you leave it on over night the most bizarre thing is that it will still feel like it’s there in the morning. Very surreal.
But what’s my overall view – I’m going to sit on the fence on this. I like it, it’s lovely, but I can’t completely understand what all the fuss is about. Sure, it lasts all night but I’m not sure my lips feel all that much more amazing in the morning – and at the end of the day it comes down to results!
Have you tried this?! What do you think??

Bought by me.

    I get really dry lips, especially overnight. I might give this a try. X

    Ooooo interesting! Ive heard so much about this lip balm but have really wondered to myself “really”? I’m not entirely sure on the costs but Im assuming its over a tenner, when good ol’ vaseline is cheap as chips and is pretty darn aces…. it’ll be a test of the times to see whether this one lasts as a fave….. nice to see such a honest post.

    Yes! I’ve only been using it a couple of days and feel exactly the same. I’m yet to find a lip balm that is a good overnight option.

    Tried that Blistex Intensive Moisturiser and my lips just cracked and cracked.

    Ive not tried it. But ive read so many fab reviews on it. I have dry lips & think this could be quite good for them. But i have so many things to use up first.

    I like it a lot! One of my friends never uses anything else on her lips.

    Overhyped, overpriced and doesn’t even moisturise THAT well really either.

    Jack Black lipbalms are awesome.

      Going to have to get my hands on one of those!

    I really like that it’s matte as it’s the perfect lip product to prime my lips for a matte lipstick whereas any usual lip balm would make my lipstick a little glossy which isn’t what I want.

    I just bought this yesterday while I was in France and I really like it so far, I think it’s a bit like the Caudalie Beauty Elixir as in it’s a lovely product but was probably a bit over hyped and you feel like you need it in your routine! I do think this deserves it’s current fame, I love the matte feeling it gives.

    Great beauty review you have shared.In this you have taken very nice healthy factor to discuss here.

    What a shame you didn’t love it. It’s hands down the best lip balm I’ve ever tried. I always has dry, cracked lips which drank up other lip balms but refused to soften but this stuff is like lip crack. Nice under lipstick too as it’s no slippery or glossy. If I had to pick one think I didn’t like about it I’d say the slightly gritty texture takes a while to work into the lip. I say a while, I mean five seconds more than other lip balms. Oh and don’t drop it; the glass will be fine but the plastic lid will shatter into a hundred pieces. Sad times. Lohttp://skinperfecting.blogspot.co.uk/ve the blog.
