Well, it’s that time of year again. We’ve turned back the clocks, the weather outside is getting colder (it feels like it will snow any minute), and the air inside is drying out from having the heat going all the time. What that usually means for me is dry, cracked lips. Normally in the winter months I have to scrub away a layer of dry, scaly skin (gross!) before I can apply any kind of lip colour. Not so since I found this game changer: Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm.
I first heard of this product through Lisa Eldridge and decided to give it a try. I picked this up about 4 or 5 months ago, and I’m so glad I did. This balm has made a huge difference; it keeps my lips smooth and moisturized. I apply it first thing in the morning before doing my makeup and again right before bed. That’s all it takes to keep the scaliness at bay.
What I really love about this product is that it seals in moisture without feeling too heavy. I just use a small amount and really work it into the lips. Afterwards, I can hardly tell it’s there. It gets the job done without looking shiny or feeling greasy. You can use it to moisturize before makeup and rest assured it won’t interfere with any lip products you put on top. You can also wear it overnight without waking up with that gunky white stuff all over your lips…if you wear lip balm at night, you know what I’m talking about. This post is just full of fantastic imagery, isn’t it?
At $17 for 15g it’s a tad pricy, but it succeeds where so many other lip balms have failed, so I’ll happily bear the cost. Since I only apply a small amount twice a day, this one tub is lasting me a good while. In 5 months I’ve only gone through about half of it. This balm is also available in stick form, which would be handy if you want to take it with you. I’m tempted to get one to keep in my purse. If you’re in Canada, you can find this at some Shopper’s Drug Mart locations.
