After misplacing my Nuxe Reve De Miel lipbalm back in January my lips became really dry and lipstick was a no go. I couldn’t bare to part with the £10 straight after Christmas so I went on the hunt for a more affordable alternative, and I decided to try the Burts Bees Beeswax lipbalm. The two are really different in finish and the feel on my lips, but honestly I get exactly the same results from both. I feel like it is a miracle that I have found a dupe for the Reve De Miel!
The Reve De Miel is a lot thicker and does look and feel more luxurious, it coats the lips and leaves a thick feeling balm that has a matte finish. I think this is more suited to being an over night treatment, because of the consistency it really does stay put all night and keep my lips moisturised until the morning. The Burts Bees balm is a lot lighter in texture feeling much more like a traditional lip balm, the packaging makes it much easier to travel with, it is what I reach for as a top up throughout the day. Both balms contain natural ingredients, mainly oils and hydrating plant extracts.
Honestly if you were on a budget then I think stick to the Burts Bees balm, it has taken my lips from really dry and chapped to nourished in a week… But, the Nuxe Reve De Miel does provide results quicker, has an amazing scent and I would actually say is worth the £9.50 because it has lasted me a really long time, it seems to be a bottom less pot (which I’m not complaining about)!
Have you tried either of these or have any other lip balm recommendations?
