Nuxe Rêve De Miel Lip Balm

First off, we must discuss the price. It is high – no doubt about that (£9.50 at feelunique.com). And from the very start I'd advise you to skip this lip balm altogether if it simply doesn't fit in your current budget. You can live without it but if you find that you can afford it without having too high expectations, than please – enter the Nuxe Rêve De Miel Lip Balm world! This may seem trivial to you but I like how it comes in its own mini box. Many drugstore lip balms come in those plastic-cardboard wrapping which makes them look cheap. Nuxe's offering is definitely above the drugstore levels. This one is one fancy lip balm. Just look at that pretty glass pot. This is one fine looking, heavy glass pot of precious and soothing honey drops for lips. And you actually get a hefty amount – total od 15g! That is a lot compared to average 3ml-5ml which drugstore lip blams feature. You actually get more than enough of product which will last extremely long if you also take in consideration its specific texture. One might find the pot unhygienic but I shall write the same thing I have regarding the Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax hand cream. We all should be applying lip balms, hand creams and other products with exclusively clean hands. When your hands are clean prior to application, the pot will not be an issue. However, if you need something to be applied on the go, than a tube is the best option.

Prije svega, moramo spomenuti cijenu koja nije mala i mislim da je to vise nego ocigledno (cca 22KM na feelunique.com). Od samog pocetka cu vam savjetovati da u potpunosti ignorisete i preskocite ovaj balzam za usne ako vam se ne uklapa u trenutacni budzet. Mozete zivjeti bez njega. Ali (znate da ima “ali”) ako ga mozete priustiti a da pri tome ne ocekujete da pomjera planine zbog novca koji ste za njega izdvojiti – itekako zelite otkriti sve cari Nuxe medenog balzama za usne! Ono na sto cu odvojiti koju rijec bi vam moglo djelovati trivijalno ali meni je drago sto je ovaj balzam upakovan u vlastitu kutijicu. Dosta (ako ne svi) balzama za usne iz drogerija je upakovano u polu plasticno-polu kartonsko pakovanje sto mi je uvijek djelovalo jeftino. Nuxe ipak prevazilazi drogerijski rang po vise tacaka. Ovo je utjelovljenje fensi-smensi balzama za usne. Dovoljno je obratiti paznju na ovu slatku staklenkicu. Radi se o teskoj staklenoj posudici fine izrade u kojoj se nalaze dragocijene medene kapi za njegu usana. A u biti se dobije prilicna kolicina proizvoda – cak 15g! To je ogromna kolicina u odnosu na drogerijske balzame sa njhivoih standardnih 3ml-5ml. Kolicinski ce ovaj balzam da traje jako dugo + posebno ako jos pored toga uzmemo u obzir i specificnu teksturu koja je stedljiva. U slucaju da smatrate kako je posudica kao pakovanje nehigijenski izbor, napisati cu isto kao i kada sam razmijenila par misli o Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax kremi za ruke. Svakako se kreme za ruke, balzami za usne i sl. stvari trebaju nanositi iskljucivo cistim rukama. Ako su ruke ciste prije nanosenja, posudica nece biti problem. No ako se nalazite u situaciji da ste u pokretu onda ce ipak tubica biti najbolja opcija. 

When we touch the topic of this lip balm's scent, I get all mushy inside. I absolutely adore the scent. To me it smells of chamomile tea with lots of honey, perhaps two scoops and fresh lemon juice drizzled over the hot mug of tea. Mmmm….It's delicious and beautiful. It is prominent but not overpowering. The texture is also something special. The texture of this lip balm puts it into an entire new category of lip balms. There's nothing just like it out there. I will be honest and say that I do like certain slippy lip balms and that isn't something off-putting for me but I do hate it when they melt all over the lip line. Yuck. This lip balm doesn't have that slip on the lips. It isn't oily, it doesn't resemble an ointment, it doesn't make lips shiny at all and yet – it makes them incredibly soft! When I first touched it, it did feel pretty hardened. But that was the outer layer on top. Or how I call it in a oh-so-chic way – the honey crust. When it settles in room temperature, the consistency softens and becomes velvety smooth under fingers. It is really hard to explain the texture to people who haven't tried it yet. It is a bit airy, like a thickly whipped lemony-honey mousse. But it is also creamy when it melts on the skin but without any sheen whatsoever (it is almost matte). It forms a light veil over the lips, but it really is very light and comfortable. I have read that some girls have noticed some nuggets inside the lip balm but I honestly haven't. So far – mine is smooth.

No kada se dotaknemo teme mirisa ovog balzama, sva se raznjezim. Apsolutno je prekrasan. Meni mirise na caj od kamilice u kojem imamo dosta meda, mozda dvije pune supene kasike a jos smo na kraju iscijedili koju kap svjeze izrezanog limuna u caj. Mmmm….Slastan je i krasan. Miris je izrazajan no meni licno nije naporan. A tekstura je tek nesto posebno. Zbog nje se ovaj balzam za usne svrstava u jednu zasebnu kategoriju. Mislim da ne postoji nista njemu slicno. Iskreno cu vam reci da mi oni mljackavi balzami za usne nisu toliko neprijatni i koristila sam ih ali ono sto ne volim je kada se pocnu razlijevati preko ruba usana. To mi je prilicno odbojno (bljak). Ovaj balzam je potpuna suprotnost njima. Nije uljan, ne slici nekoj masti, od njega se usne ne sjaje a opet – njeguje ih i nahrani kao rijetko sto! Kada sam prvi put dotakla povrsinu balzama, djelovao je prilicno cvrsto. To je bio samo povrsinski sloj kojeg zovem medenom koricom. Cim odstoji neko vrijeme na sobnoj temperaturi on se dosta omeksa te bude barsunast i jako gladak pod prstima. Izazov je docarati njegovu konzistenciju osobama koje ga nisu prije koristile. Pomalo je vazdusast, zamisljam ga kao gusto utuceno limunasto-medasto vrhnje ili pjenu. No dosta je i kremast kada se topi na toplini koze ali ipak nece ostaviti sjajni trag (skoro pa je mat). Usne oblozi jednim jako laganim velom koji je ugodan. Primjetila sam kako su neke korisnice zabiljezile da su pronasle male grumencice unutar svojih Nuxe balzama za usne dok kod sebe (barem ne jos) takvo nesto nisam primjetila. 

The thing with the Nuxe Rêve De Miel Lip Balm is that I don't treat it as a regular lip balm when I'm on the go. It's more of an ultra nourishing overnight treatment for lips. I apply it mostly before bedtime by massaging a layer over my lips and in the morning they're so plush and so lush (I even made a rhyme if you haven't noticed :)). It does work nicely as a base for lipsticks but that depends on the lipstick. Some do look extremely better (e.g.Bourjois Color Lip Boost Crayons) but others do need a slippy base. So do test it underneath several different lipsticks. This is a lip balm which has become a staple of mine and I have actually purchased two pots of it at Escentual.com while it was on offer for incredible £4.50. A bargain! I love it but I do have other lip balms on stand-by when I'm out and about. I do have one at work because the central heating kills these lips of mine. The other pot is at my bedside table. Amazing product, definitely worth the hype and definitely worth investing in because I hardly made a dent in mine after 3 months of use. Money well spent.

Nuxe Rêve De Miel balzam nije nesto sto tretiram kao standardnu mazalicu za usne. Nije mi poput ostalih balzama koje koristim u hodu. Ja ga posmatram kao jedan izuzetno hranljiv nocni tretman za usne. Vecinom ga nanosim prije spavanja a ujutro me docekaju fantasticno meke i obnovljene usne, bez ljuspica i bez bolnih ranica. Lijepo moze posluziti kao baza za ruzeve iako to dosta ovisi o ruzu koji koristite preko njega. Neki saradjuju sa njim savrseno (npr.Bourjois Color Lip Boost Crayons) dok je drugima potrebnija skliska baza. Ne bi bilo lose isprobati par ruzeva sa njim u kombinaciji kako bi otkrile koje je iz vase kolekcije najbolje koristiti preko njega. On mi je vec postao neizostavan korak u njegovanju a nabavila sam cak dva komada sa Escentual.com stranice dok su jos bili snizeni na samo cca 10KM. Takvu priliku niposto nisam smjela propustiti. Koliko god mi bio neophodan, koristim i druge balzame za usne kada se negdje vani smucam i kada sam dosta u pokretu. Jednu posudicu Nuxe balzama drzim na poslu (centralno grijanje strasno isusuje kozu) a druga mi je kuci, na stolicu pored kreveta (prakticno mi je uvijek tu za nanosenje prije spavanca). Ovo je fantastican proizvod, potpuno vrijedan hvale i kultnog statusa. Meni je bio vrijedna i isplativa investicija samo kada vidim da sam ga jako malo potrosila nakon cak tri mjeseca svakodnevne upotrebe. Odlicno potrosen novac.
