If there were a product that could give me lips that exceed my dreams in softness, plumpness and moisturised-ness, I would be willing to endure an entire Cat Stevens album in exchange for a tub. Add the fact this wonderful lip potion come in a citrus blossom and honey scented vehicle, then heck, I've just become Yusuf's number 1 fan.
With Nuxe Reve de Miel I am thanking my lucky stars I only have to part with twenty beans and wait for Mr. Postman to deliver the goods. I loathe the artist formerly known as 'Cat' with the heat of a thousand Father and Sons.
Despite years of blistex, paw paw ointment, 8 hour creams, I always experienced painful lip dryness that would cause splitting and peeling. Since turfing out the many sub-par lip treatments I had amassed and turning to Nuxe, I haven't experienced all the horror that came with dry lips. Can I get a 'hallelujah?'
The balm itself is quite similar to buttery, crystallised raw honey in texture, smell and how it melts in contact with body heat. Once on the lips, it leaves a protective layer with a matte finish. This layer is very long lasting, surviving general menial tasks such as talking, drinking, snacking, wincing at co-workers from behind your partition. The matte finish and lack of slip make it the perfect lip primer.
Even when I smooth a layer over my pout before bed each night, I always wake with it still fully applied. I remove it during my cleansing routine with water and a muslin cloth, which reveals the extent of which this gem of a product has saved my kisser; smooth and supple (cringe, I hate the word 'supple'. It's in the same category as 'moist' and 'viscous').
