Target Does Luxury Lips
After hearing some of my favorite British beauty vloggers go on and on about French pharmacy cult product Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, I'd had it on my "doubt I'll ever see this in the States, but if I do, I'm picking it up" wish list. Imagine my surprise and happiness when I found out Target was carrying a small portion of Nuxe's luxurious line of products, including the lip balm! I picked it up a few months ago—we're talking pre-Christmas vacation—and have been hooked on it ever since.
It's unlike any other lip balm I've tried. It's waxy and very thick, so if you're a fan of slippery lip balm formulas, this one might take some getting used to. It's almost slightly gritty in its texture because it's just that thick of a formula. A little goes a long way.
I gave it its first true test when I was in Utah over Christmas break visiting my parents. The air out there is extremely dry, and my lips always take the brunt of it whenever I'm out there. This time around, though, I was religious about applying it at night, and my lips stayed hydrated and flake-free throughout the day. I've been applying it nightly ever since, and when I've deviated and used a different lip balm at night, my lips feel drier the next day. I have the feeling that once I've used every last bit of balm from my current jar, I'm going to make a Target run the next day to pick up another jar.
(P.S. Target sometimes has Nuxe products on clearance or on sale, so if you don't want to shell out the cash for the full price, keep an eye on it online. I got mine for 25% off!)
