I’m not sure If I’m all alone here, but my lips are chapped in the winter cause it’s cold and in the summer cause it’s hot and I’m dehydrated~So I’m one of those not very lucky people who need Lip Balm all year round. I will tell you about my two current favourites and why the made the cut 😉
Nuxe, Rêve de Miel ( Honey Dream): The best lip balm I’ve tried so far! ~To start, I love the smell, it has like a lemony and honey smell to it~ it’s soft, it reminds me a bit of a lemon pie. Yum! ~ the consistency is not like other lip balm I have tried. This one is thick~ but maybe that’s why I like it so much. I truly feel it’s working its way inside my lips. I use this Lip Balm specially at night time, before I go tot bed. I have to say I love waking up the next day and still have it on.~ and when I have forgotten it at home when I’ve gone on holidays…Drama! I can totally see and feel the difference. The only thing I don’t like about it, it’s the fact it comes in a pot. I don’t personally like to put my fingers inside pots for hygienic reasons. ~ but as long as you make sure you’re hands are clean when you use it, it’s all good. Also it’s important to add that a pot usually lasts me faround 3 to 4 months.
Nuxe, Rêve de Miel: 12.35 euros, you can get it at feelunique.com
Avène, Cold Cream: This Lip balm was the first one I tried when I arrived in Paris, trying to replace my Burt’s bee one.~ I have to admit it ‘was real love’ as I never even thought about the Burt’s one again, ups! This lip balm also has a thick consistency, but not as thick as the Nuxe. it’s thick enough to to be worn underneath my everyday lipsticks and make a nice match. I really appreciate the packaging, as it’s in a stick form it’s very practical for application but also to throw it in you bag. I do keep mine with me at all times, so I can reapply throughout the day. The only thing I don’t like about it, it’s that it has a bit of a white tint to it. it kind of reminds me of the sun blocks my mom used to buy for my brother and I when we were kids. ( totally in Fashion in the 90s) 😉 I’ve seen it in a pack of two for the same price…so that’s what I did last time, just got two for the price of one…
Avéne, Cold Cream: 7.35 euros. you can get it at feelunique.com
These two are definetely My Cup od Tea!
