If you’re a fan of UK bloggers and Youtubers there is a fairly good chance you’ve heard of this French lip balm that has seemed to become a cult fave overnight. So f course being the dry lip sufferer that I am I had to give this a try, and here are my thoughts.
This is a very thick lip balm with a matte finish. It coats the lips and almost forms a barrier on the lips. I think it’s supposed to smell like orange and honey, and upon first applications I would have never guessed either of those to be the scents, but now that I’ve been using it for quite some time I can smell both the honey and a bint of orange.
I tend to use this overnight because it’s so thick or as a lip primer because of it’s thick, smooth texture works great as a base. Though I do find if I have a stuffed up nose and I’m breathing through my mouth a lot that this is not enough moisture for my lips.
This is housed very simply in a small frosted pot, with some writing around the sides, with a plain white screw on lid. Some people find it unsanitary to dip their fingers into a pot, but I don’t mind it for when I’m at home, but I rarely bring it wit me places.
Now the price for this varies greatly, depending on what country you are in or where you get it from. I bought mine for $11 on Amazon, if you buy it directly from Nuxe you will pay $19, but I believe that you can get 20% off your first purchase from the site. But no matter the price you pay each pot holds 15g of product.
I think if you buy this full retail in the US it’s a bit overpriced, however if you can get a good deal like I did on Amazon, or you live a in a country where it’s cheaper then I say definitely pick this up!
And now for some photos!
Let me know if you’ve tried this before, or if you haven’t what is your fave lip balm? I’d love to know, until next time . . .
