There are so many different lip balms out there, both high end and drugstore. I have tried my fair share but nothing that was mind blowing, until now.
The NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm retails for $19 on Amazon. The Amazon description states:

I was intrigued by the claims that it was a matte and non-sticky lip balm. I thought it was a little pricey but I decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did.
Matte & Non-Sticky – This formula is very thick in the jar yet feels thin on your lips. It isn’t matte like a liquid lipstick but it isn’t shiny at all. It isn’t sticky, however if you put a lot on your lips then it can pill up and feel goopy. This is such a unique texture and product that I am struggling to accurately describe it. Since it is a matte formula, this is the only lip balm I wear that Eric doesn’t complain about.
Lipstick Base – I put this on every morning as part of my skincare routine. By the time I have applied all of my makeup my lips are ready for lipstick. It makes them so smooth that any lipstick looks good on them.
Overnight – I follow the recommendation to put a very thick layer on at night. When I wake up in the morning I can still feel it on my lips. My lips feel soft, smooth and hydrated.
Cuticles – I have not tried it on my cuticles, but that is a great idea. I am definitely going to start putting it on at night.
When I was sick a couple of weeks ago I put this on my nose every night. Any other time I have been sick, especially that long, I would have a red, flaky and painful nose. With the use of this product I didn’t have any flaking or pain. At the end of the day my nose would be dry but I would just slather this on when I got home and I was good to go.
My lips have never been this soft for this long and I love the honey and lemon scent. I have tried other, more expensive, lip balms and nothing compares to this. I highly recommend the NUXE Lip Balm, it is a definite BUY!
