My HG lip balm. Before I discovered this, I had given up wearing lipstick as it showed up the flakes on my lips so badly. Every lip balm I tried failed to moisturise for longer than a couple of hours. Reve de Miel lip balm has a thick, almost waxy yet smooth texture. I did not detect any grittiness. If you are expecting something light that you can constantly reapply at work, this really isn't for you. It is more of an intensive treatment. Reve de Miel lip balm is to lips what a deep conditioner is to hair. For me, this is a night time balm only and it does such a good job that I rarely require lip balm during the day. I apply a thick layer, leave it overnight then scrub it off with a damp flannel the next morning. It leaves me with plump, softened, moisturised lips and not a hint of flakiness.
It comes in a heavy glass jar which is somewhat impractical for travel but, as I said above, it is so effective that you can throw any old cheap balm in your bag for top ups. This will be doing most of the work.
This is my HG lip balm. I always have dry, cracked lip even in summer! I've gone through 2 jars and stray to other brands but always have to come back to it. Most lip balm with petroleum or paraffin based does not moisturize my lips, and those with mint flavor dry my lip further. Others gave me extras: clogged pores on my upper lip. Not this lip balm. It leaves my lip well moisturized. I don't even have to reapply throughout the day but only at night before bed and the next morning I have smooth lip. It comes in an elegant frosted glass jar and it has a light honey scent that is very pleasant. Although it is only 15ml, it last a looong time (6-9 months, a little goes a long way). In Europe, this cost EUR5-8. Love it!

not very in winter, cos' the blam will too hard to use.
and if u use too much in summer , the lips skin will absort
too many aqua ,and come in to white.
totally, i will not buy again.
I love this lip balm! The only downside is its price, but honestly, it works so well that it's totally worth it. And it comes in such a huge (and cute!) pot. It will last you for a VERY long time. The texture is absolutely perfect. It's a little thick, but not sticky. Lightly fragranced, but not overbearing. Mine is not gritty at all. It's very smooth. If you're looking for something shiny and flashy, this is not it. It leaves a matte finish that's perfect for night or if you just want to go "casual." I'm very happy with this product.
Well, i bought this lip balm after reading about all the great reviews. I was a bit skeptic since I have only been disappointed with all the lip balms out there. Most are petroleum or paraffin based. Even Burts or Carmex or Labello all share the same cheap base. This lip balm was definitely different. I use it religiously every morning and every night before I go to bed. Some reviewers said it had a gritty texture and was highly fragranced. My lip balm was neither highly fragranced nor gritty. Maybe some buyers bought old stock?? Any i don't have chapped lips. I MEAN chapped lips are a thing of the past. I always used to be chewing my lips with those other lip balms. This one worked after the first day. I will definitely repurchase.
I'm not a big a fan of chapsticks, lip gels, etc.as I don't usually notice much of a difference but I like this product. I think it smells like oranges & honey but others say it is actually grapefruit. I think it is best used at bed-time or in the morning as it is a thick paste-like balm.
I don't carry it around with me because it's a small but weighty glass jar. I find it keeps my lips moist and surprisingly plump and it smells so nice.
I think I'm in the minority on this one because I didn't find this product gritty at all. I hate hard, gritty, waxy lipbalms. Shoppers in Canada is carrying Nuxe and they had testers so I was able to try the texture on my hand prior to purchasing. I found it quite soft and easy to spread. It lasted all night and I personally love the scent so I'd definitely buy this again for the pure luxury of it all. For reference, the only other two lipbalms I like are Paula's Choice and Labello. *EDIT* I find this just sits on top of my lips during the winter and require something more emollient. I think I'll stash it until the summer.
This is a new purchase for me, and so far I'm impressed. Like other reviewers have mentioned, this isn't a balm to be used for aethetics - if you're after a glossy finish, this is not for you. It's quite thick, but still comfortable and can be used under lipstick or other products. It IS slighty gritty when first applied, but within 5 mins the balm smooths out (Im guessing that this has something to do with the shea butter). The ingredients are great: beeswax, shea butter, almond oil, rose oil, grapefruit extract and...honey. I defintely found it moisturising and softening, especially after leaving it on over night. I suppose many balms out there give the same effect for less the price, but this product is extremely long lasting and little goes a long way. I predict that in the time it will take me to finish up this pot, i would have gone through 3-4 tins of my regular balm (Lush Lite Lip). I'm not one to buy into brands, but i really believe that this is worth the $32AUD price tag :) PS: Considering the name, i was suprised it wasn't honey scented. I'd call it something like toffee/citrus.
This lip treatment smells really nice, and 15g is a lot of prouct, but I still think the price tag is too sharp. However, my lips are really dry, requires a huge amount of moisturizing. I found this lip balm too hard, I have to rub it really hard against my lips in order to spread it out. Will not purchase again, I need something that is really oily. This product is not for me.
This is my HG lip balm; it hydrates and relieves chapping like no other! I love the scent and texture of this waxy balm, which I apply at night in the wintertime, and sparingly at night during the warmer weather. This balm always stays in place throughout the night, and restores my lips from the abuse of the day during that time. Although the price seems outrageous, used conservatively this balm lasts me almost a year; given it's efficacy and the amount of product in a pot, it is worth it's weight in gold... I've used this for years and repurchased several times, but tend to buy in France where it's readily available and less expensive. I don't mind the jar packaging as I dip in with clean hands at night, and the jar is lovely to look at!
