Soothe Dry Lips with Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Moisturising Stick


Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick
'Scuse the avocado crushed sheets. I'm in the jungle. #doingmybest

Skin is weird. Why is it that some of us (i.e. me) have got oil galore on the ol’face, but lips as dry as the desert? I’m talking extreme here. Like, cat’s-bum-appearance if I’m not careful (or go crazy on the matte liquid lipsticks. Yowza. Not hot.).

That being said, it does mean I have tried just about every lip balm there is on the market. From horrifically expensive, but effective (By Terry Baume de Rose springs to mind) to cheap and cheerful Vaseline, I’ve given ‘em all a go. As a general rule, I find that non-petroleum jelly based products work a little better for me, and require less re-application.

My all-time favourite before-bed lip balm is Nuxe Rêve de Miel. This lovely little pot contains shea butter, almond oil, honey, and grapefruit essence. it’s ultra-rich, super moisturising, and really does the trick. However, the pot does get a bit gross after a while, and it’s really not a travel friendly option.

Behold: My French pharmacy win.

I picked up a tube of Nuxe's Lip Moisturising Stick in Nice this summer. Rêve de Miel in stick form?! Sold!

It’s very slightly more affordable than its' potted sister, and infinitely more practical for carrying around. Nuxe’s Lip Moisturising Stick is enriched with loads of oils like the original – including the ever-famed argan oil – and feels very comfortable and moisturising on the lips. Its quite firm – you’re not going to get a huge glob of this deposited on your lips on application, even in really hot, lip balm melty weather. It is not at all sticky, though is does leave a perceptible layer on the lips – it’s not one to leave a matte lipstick alone.

I have to confess, I had completely forgotten about this and found it at the bottom of a bag, being neglected, but it has shot right back up to the top spot.


All said and done – a lovely lip balm, and a really practical option if you’re a long term Rêve de Miel fan!

Has any one tried Bite Beauty's Agave Lip mask? It's next on my list!

  1. I've spent through a few pots of Reve de Miel even though I don't love it (I always wake up with white bits round my lips, yuck) so this sounds like a better alternative!

    1. Ugh I know. It goes a bit weird in the pot by the end, too! This is a nicer option in my opinion! X

  2. I keep meaning to try this (both versions) but I can't get passed my beloved Carmex. Definitely need to try it soon though! x

    1. Carmex is great though, isn't it. I know it's not for everyone, but I love the original! I've really been liking this one, though. Worth a try! :) x

  3. I wasn't the biggest fan of the pot version, I just didn't get the hype and it didn't moisturise my lips enough, but it is a greaaaat base for liquid lipsticks and matte lipsticks! This one seems awesome for chucking in the bag, if I see it around i'll probably give it a go, thanks for the great review hun ^_^

  4. I use the pot version before bed too and had no idea there was a more traditional stick version of it - definitely trying this next time I need a new lip balm :)
