Nuxe Rêve de Miel lip balm and Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse: Review

I was given the opportunity to try two best sellers from french skincare line Nuxe.

I was particularly looking forward to trying their lip balm because I am constantly on a lookout for a lip balm that will keep my super dry lips happy (and compatible with my matte lipstick fetish). I’ve heard so many people rave about this product and it’s reached cult status amongst the beauty blogging community. They say that a pot of Nuxe Rêve de Miel sells every 28 seconds.

Nuxe Rêve de Miel ($19.95) is a beeswax based balm featuring honey, sweet almond oil, shea butter, and grapefruit extract. It also uses silicones in it’s formula, which gives it a matte velvety finish, and makes it a rather excellent lip primer. Because it is matte, it can be used past the lip line, which is great for people with dry skin or dermatitis around the lips. The consistency is unusual- it is very thick and a little waxy- but applies smooth once on the lips.

On my lips it’s better than the average lip balm, but not as good as my favourites for hydrating chapped lips (Jack Black and People for Plants balms). Given how well it works for the vast majority of lips, you probably have a good chance that it performs more impressively as a balm on you than it does on me. The stand out feature for me, however, is the way that Rêve de Miel doubles as a lip primer- if you apply a small amount on the lips and just past the lip line, it works very well in keeping your lipstick looking fresh and preventing your lip colour from bleeding. OCC Lip Tars are the worst when it comes to bleeding past the lip line, and I’ve always had to run the edge of a tissue along my lip line through the day when wearing these- until now!

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse ($39.95) is a multipurpose ‘dry’ oil for face, body, and hair. It is a lightweight oil that you mist onto your skin or hair, and leaves a subtle sheen and fragrance.  I like using this as a skin ‘finishing spray’ before heading out to give my skin a bit of dewiness, and it since it’s so lightweight it works in summer too. I love how easy it is to apply, and how quickly it absorbs- I can mist harder to reach areas like in between my shoulder blades, and not have to work to rub it in.  For me it isn’t rich enough to replace a regular body moisturiser after the shower, so it’s an extra step that I typically will only do if I’m going out.

The fragrance of Huile Prodigieuse is fairly prominent, and tends to stick around for awhile after applying so this might be an awesome perk if you like the scent. I would advise giving this a sniff before purchasing just in case you don’t.

Huile Prodigeuse is petrolatum free and does not use propylene glycol- it does contain silicones though, so if you are sensitive to ‘cones on your face you might want to keep to using this on your body and hair. [EDIT: I’ve been advised that I’ve looked at the wrong ingredient list, and there are NO SILICONES in the Huile Prodigeuse. I’ve amended my list. Apologies!]
