Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm

Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm
Sometimes, the most simple products are the best ones. I often forget how important to my routine a plain old lip balm is, and this Nuxe offering is one of my favourites. It's a well loved blogger product and has been kicking around in my handbag in some guise or another for over twelve months now. Here's why...

First things first, this stuff smells good. It's supposed to be honey scented, but to my nose it's more like orange. Regardless, I love it, and have passed many a minute giving it a good sniff and looking a little bit strange. Scent aside, the winning thing about this balm for me is that it's matte. That makes it very wearable and not at all sticky. It quickly settles in to my lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth.

Since I purchased this lip balm in stick form too (as shown in my recent Paris beauty haul post), I thought it was best to weigh in on the jar vs. bullet debate. I love the frosted glass packaging of the jar, it feels luxurious and is ideal for leaving on my bedside table or desk. However, it's a little bulky and heavy for carrying around in my handbag, which is where the lightweight plastic packaging of the bullet wins. The stick version applies a lighter layer which is perfect for on the go, whereas I get a thicker 'treatment' feel when scooped from the jar. Do you need both options? No, but they work in different ways to leave my lips feeling in tip-top condition.

  2. When my current bedside table lip balm is finished I am getting this one in the little jar version! I've been very curious :) I didn't even know there was also a stick version!

  4. I have the jar and I keep it beside my bed to put on at night, I also have the stick form in my bag too though - the packaging on the jar is just too bulky to carry around! x

  5. I have the little jar version however I agree with you that it's probably not ideal to take out with you. I'd like to pick up the stick form at some point.

  6. I have the jar version that I love using at night as a treatment but during the day, I find something a little more portable. I haven't tried the stick version of this, but I'll have to at some point!

  7. I love NUXE lip products because they work really well. I like to carry around the stick version during the day too, along with my Burts Bees so I don't have to dip my fingers into a pot but at night, the pot version is so repairing!
