With the amount of repurchases that have taken place recently, it would seem I’m becoming somewhat of a beauty granny – settled in my ways... almost. I have my eye on a few new releases but this weekend I stuck to the priority purchase: The Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm.
It’s one of those marmite-ish products as I’ve met so many people who cannot stand the stuff, but for me it keeps my lips super hydrated, lasts longer than any other lip balm I’ve owned and helps to prevent my facial eczema (which for those who have been asking recently is a condition brought on by certain ingredients in highly pigmented lipstick. This used to be a regular occurrence on my face before I discovered this as it seems to create a barrier between my lips and any products applied over it.
In the spring and autumn months, when the temperature is less extreme I tend to apply this twice a day (morning and evening), but during the very cold/hot months, it’s applied around four times a day. I purchased my first tub back in November, and am only just finishing out the last drops this week. With over half a years worth of use for a £9 product, it’s far better than going through a tube a month of a mediocre drugstore lip balm that is far less effective.
My first tub was picked up in Paris whilst I was there with work, but my most recent tub fell into my hands during last weekends trip to Space NK. I may be broke, but at least I’m not without it, and I now have a cute little travel sized tub to decant my skincare into on my weekend away next week. Ever the optimist…
