I’m notoriously picky about lip products, but more than anything, a good lip balm can go a long ways. This is also why I don’t mind spending/investing in lip balms since good ones always last a long time anyway. My newest find is the NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm, which has been my all-time favorite since I purchased it. These kinds of balms are important for nighttime — especially since it’s just as important to take care of your lips. I like that I can apply it thick on my lips at night, and I wake up with smooth pretty lips in the morning. The texture of the balm is easily spreadable, but it’s dense. However, it doesn’t feel sticky or goopy on the lips; therefore, even after a full night;s sleep, I awake with the balm still on my lips!
During the day, I apply a thinner layer so that I can wear it alone or I can wear it underneath a lip color. Either way, the formula stays well on the lips — keeping them hydrated and comfortable until I need to re-apply. Because the formula adheres well to the lips without interfering with lip colors or feeling sticky, the balm lasts on the lips for hours and hours. Unless I’m consciously wiping my lips with a napkin, the balm stays put for most of the day.
Because the balm comes in a pot, I tend to not carry this around with me. I apply in the mornings, re-apply when I get home from work, and then apply it at night before I go to bed. A little bit goes a long ways, and since the product lasts so long on the lips, I think $20 is a justifiable cost to pay! In addition, I like how you can control the amount you apply. Whether I apply a thin layer or a thick layer, the product does exactly what it needs to do. The whipped texture is creamy and isn’t too glossy on the lips, which I really like. As a “repairing, nourishing lip balm with a rich, delicious texture to restore suppleness and comfort to dry and chapped lips,” I recommend this lip balm because it’s versatile. But more importantly, it really works and is comfortable to wear — which makes it a winner for me in my book!
