Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Review

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Review

Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm is the product everyone raves about. It's been on my wishlist for years, and I was one very happy camper when I finally threw it in my shopping cart back in April. It comes in a luxurious looking glass pot, smells citrussy and contains amazing ingredients such as honey, plant oils, shea butter and grapefruit essence, which promise to nourish, repair, soothe and protect lips. I first noticed a rather interesting texture. I would describe it as thick and unpleasant. It was nothing like the moisturizing, buttery lip balms I was used to before. I wasn't impressed, but it was not a deal breaker for me. What did impress me, though, is that the formula somehow survives eating and drinking, so there is no need to reapply it every five minutes. 

My first impression of the product back in April was... I don't even know. I wasn't wowed by it, but I also wasn't disappointed. I was applying it every night and every morning before I went skiing whilst on vacation in the French Alps, and my lips never got chapped, so I thought it must do the job well and gave it a 'thumbs up'. Recently, however, I was dealing with a serious case of chapped lips, and decided to dug the balm out of the cupboard and take it for another ride. Unfortunatelly, it failed to deliver. I was putting it on at night before I went to bed and expected to see a miracle in the morning, but instead, it did nothing. It didn't do anything for my cracked lips, other than left a yucky looking film over them.

I haven't read a single bad review up to the point, so of course I was and still am very disappointed. I thought I was the only one with that kind of experience and already declared myself a freak, but then a few days ago, I came across another blogger saying the exact same thing happened to her. It turns out, it's not just me who doesn't like it and doesn't get the hype. I feel like the problem with this product is that it doesn't sink in. It just sits on your lips, creating a barrier, which might work to prevent your lips from getting dry, but it certainly doesn't do its job when your lips are already cracked and need saving. This product doesn't get my approval. I think it's overpriced and overhyped. I have plenty of other much cheaper lip balms that do the same or even better job...

  1. Perfectly summarised Sandra! I have pretty much the exact same thoughts :) I don't get how there aren't more people who have this problem?

  2. I feel exactly the same way and was going to do a very similar review! I don't know if it's the same to you but I feel like it also has weird chunks through it that feel like grains of salt or something in it. Just ugh. Not impressed at all!

    1. I haven't noticed that in mine, but I've heard a few people mentioning it. Aparently, the grains are crystallized honey.

  3. Še zdaleč nisi edina, tudi jaz sem bila strašno razočarana nad tem balmom in nikakor ne morem razumeti hypa okoli njega. Zoprna tekstura, se ne vpije v ustnice, kar nekako "stoji" na njih. Ustnic mi ni niti malo navlažil ali nahranil. Skratka razočaranje na celi črti in še en izdelek več, ki ga nisem porabila, kupila pa samo zaradi vsesplošne evforije. Ni pa to edini over-hyped izdelek, ki me je razočaral. Zadnjič sem dobila Baume The Rose By Tery, glede katerega se po blogih tudi piše kot o nekem lip-saverju in oh in sploh. Kar lahko rečem - save the money!

    1. Ja, včasih se tudi jaz čudim kako so nekateri izdelki tako popularni, čeprav so čisto zanič...

  4. Priznam, da me je tvoja ocena malce presenetila, sploh, ker so do sedaj vsi na veliko hvalili ta izdelek. Sama ga sicer še nisem preizkusila, tako da ne morem nič reči, imam pa ga tudi že na WL zelo dolgo. Je pa tudi res, da vsi izdelki ne ustrezajo vsem, tudi če so še tako opevani. :)

    1. Tudi to je res, ampak tale se mi zdi pa tak fail, da težko verjamem, da res komu pomaga... Kaj pa vem.

  5. Oh, alright, I need this balm. I shall go on a hunt for it. :)

  6. Jaz sem imela popolnoma enako izkušnjo. Super za preventivo, ker si ga kar vsak dan namažem zjutraj in zvečer. Ko pa so bile ustnice res grozne, pa tudi 4 dni mazanja ni nič pospešilo proces celjenja. Zdaj pa sploh ne vem kaj si naj mislim, ali je super ali pa povprečen.:)

    1. Mene je res čisto razočaral. Tudi zdaj, ko sem imela že ok ustnice sem si ga zvečer gor devala, pa se mi zdi, da se zbujam s čedalje bolj suhimi ustnicami. Na meni očitno res ne deluje...

  7. Meni je pa fantastičen... zdaj sem že drugi teden prehlajena in si vsak dan mažem ustnice in nos - edino kar mi jih rešuje. Sem ravno včeraj imela grozno suhe in ko sem se danes zbudila, so bile v super stanju. :)

    1. Lucky you! Meni na žalost ne pomaga. :/

  8. Hvala Sandra! In vsi komentatorji. :)
    Sedaj ga ne rabim.
    P.s zelo ti priporočam Dvorec trebnik balzam vanilija! Nekaj najboljšega. Se lepo vpije in zadosti je 2x na dan, po umivanju obraza. No pa še dosti ceneje je kot tale!

    1. Ne, res se ga ne splača kupit... U, a res? Zgleda, da imajo kar nekaj super produktov potem. Jaz kupujem njihov šampon (kokosov se mi zdi) in mi je zakon. Pa še poceni. :)

    2. Tudi sedaj, po tistem incidentu z lasmi, ti odgovarja? Potem ga morem probat! Ker mam se kaksen cm skurjenih konic, ampak si ne upam se krajse ostrizt!;)

      Delete
    3. No, pri skurjenih laseh ne bi rekla, da ravno pomaga, mi je pa boljši od drugih šamponov, ki sem jih sprobala. Edini produkt, ki res dela čudeže na mojih laseh je Jo Hansford Illuminoil, ki sem ga pred kratkim ocenila. Res, vsi so začeli komentirati moje lase, haha. Me prav zanima kaj mi bo v torek frizerka rekla. :D

  9. Jaz sem ga tudi imela na WL pa se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup zaradi cene. Ko sem prebrala, da kar obstane na ustnicah sem ga z veseljem prečrtala. Res mi je všeč ko vidim še kakšno drugačno oceno od vseh teh ''hyped up'' izdelkov. :)

  10. Thank you for this review.

    I have been very hyped up in the past days about this balm, seriously considering getting it. But then I was the ingredients list, and it seems silicone features heavily in this product, so of course it just sits on your lips and forms a barrier without actually healing it. The INCI was the first thing that turned me away from this balm, but your review has cemented my decision to not purchase it. Again, thank you for your honest review.

  11. Škoda, da te je razočaral. Meni je super, je pa res, da dobiš dosti cenejše balzame, ki enako dobro opravijo svoje delo :)
