Review: NUXE - Reve de miel :)



Hello! I wanted to talk about these two little gems for a while now and  finally managed to make a post before I use it all up :) These two were actually the first two full sized products I have ever bought and tried from the brand NUXE and also the first two from their Reve de miel collection. I treated myself with Face cleansing and make-up removing gel and their famous Lip balm in a tiny round pot.

Cleansing gel:

Packaging - plastic bottle with 200 ml of product, once opened the product should be good for another 6 months. Also love the pump, easy to use and very clean, no touching the whole content with your fingers and such. Price is about 15 - 20 euros usually, I bought it at FeelUnique for 13 - 14 euros on sale, but at the moment it's back with regular price 19,46 euros.

About the product: It's a mild facial-cleansing gel and it's soap free.  It promises to soothe and soften your skin. Also contains honey and sunflower extracts. It smells amazing! The scent actually reminds me of honey and a bit of flowers and I really like it, I don't find it too strong or anything. It's meant for dry and sensitive skin, but it works really well with my skin too (oily to mixed skin type).

Use: Normally this wouldn't be enough for my greasy to mixed skin type and especially I feel this wouldn't be enough to remove makeup on its own. But I tend to use this in the evening as my second step. First I would use cleansing milk or micellar water, than I would go over with this cleansing gel and my face brush. In the morning I feel this is enough and does the job just fine, so I only use this gel. It's really really gentle, I think this is the most gentle cleanser I have ever had! I decided to buy it because I wanted to have something mild for winter time as I feel like I rub my skin way too much anyway and I wanted to keep it well hydrated and not overwhelmed with regular facial cleansers. It really removes well any leftover makeup or oil  and sebum from the skin and at the same time leaves my skin gentle and soft and not dry like paper, as other cleansers tend to do, also there's no tight sensation after. On the brands website it claims it can be used for all skin types and it really can be. If you don't use heavy makeup, foundations and such you will only need one pump to clean your face, if you use more make up than you will need to go over twice to really get everything off. That's why I prefer to make two steps, first one removing everything I can with a cotton pad and cleansing milk/micellar water and than with the help of my face brush and Nuxe gel get all the pores and everything that's still on my skin and there's really a lot of makeup still left on my skin, my brush is usually completely brown when I finish second step. A big bonus is also sweet relaxing honey scent :) 




Lip Balm:

Packaging: Small round pot, plastic cover, glass pot, contains 15g of product, once opened will last for another 12 months. Price is about 13 euros regular, also bought at FeelUnique for a bit less on sale, but currently priced at 13,21 euros.

About the product: A repairing, nourishing lip balm with rich texture, restores suppleness and comfort to dry and chapped lips.

Use: I usually don't carry the pot with me as it's a glass one and it could break. As this is the most expensive lip balm I have ever owned I like to take care of it and it usually sits on my desk and never ever travels anywhere. I mostly use it before going to bed and sometimes during the day, if I am at home. I prefer to use it when I know I will not be applying any lipsticks on top. Once I made a mistake of applying this balm and than tried to apply the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Grand Cru over on top and it just wouldn't stick. So any such formulas as the Bourjois one will not work well if you use this under. Also lipsticks that tend to glide on lips like melted butter - same problem, pigment just wouldn't stick. It really leaves a nice heavy full protective coat all over your lips and does miracles for them. I actually had less problems with my lips this winter and also now at the beginning of spring. Once applied this goes matte and not shiny as other lip balms I have. Also you don't really use much with one application so one pot, no matter the price, will last you a very long time. It's really moisturizing, great to just slather on in a big layer in winter time or when it's windy. A big bonus is also that your hair won't stick on it! Has a slight scent, but a pleasant one, so it doesn't bother me, resembles a bit to the sweetness of the cleansing gel.

  1. Si ne predstavljam tega čistilnega gela za obraz..namreč mi verjetno vonj ne bi bil všeč, ker mi tud v obliki kreme za roke ni bil :)

    1. Meni je bil vonj dejansko všeč, sem se ga mogoče malo naveličala ampak mi res lepo diši, ravno prav po medu. Taka zimska zadeva, če bi tole uporabljala poleti na 35 stopinjah bi me verjetno hitro minilo:P Nisem pa nikoli probala kreme za roke tako da niti ne vem kako diši, predvidevam da podobno :)
