The Review: Nuxe Rêve De Miel
nueyork Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I can't believe that this is my very first pot of this highly coveted and raved about product. NUXE Rêve De Miel is so, so talked about and I'd been eyeing it up and looking at my options for awhile. It isn't the cheapest of lip balms, especially in Australia, but one day when eyeing up a lipstick on Feel Unique and needing to break the twenty dollar free shipping mark, I decided to just take the plunge and pick it up. Plus, who could resist the cute pink 20th anniversary packaging?
I had one of those angels singing type moments when I opened the box and held this weighty little pot in my hand. It felt luxurious, heavy packaging always does to me, and when I screwed off the cap it was definitely not when I expected. I had never heard anyone mention the strong citrus scent before, and I knew it was meant to be thick, but the texture truly is different to anything I've tried in the past.
The scent definitely did make me cringe at first as my migraines are usually triggered by strong scents, especially citrus, so my brain just thinks "nope" every time I catch the smell of lemon or orange. However, after application I realised that I couldn't actually smell it anymore and felt completely relieved. As per every review on this balm, it's incredibly nourishing, weightless on the lips regardless of it's thickness, and doesn't leave a shiny look to the lips - but I wouldn't go as far as calling it a "matte" balm. I am most excited to try this as a lipstick base because everything about it suggests that it would be perfect! I really do recommend this to anyone who has been eyeing it up forever, it really does live up to the hype!
Have you tried the NUXE Rêve De Miel, and if so, what did you think?
