This particularly unctuous and rich balm is formulated with a host of natural ingredients to nourish and repair under-the-weather lips.

It has a very thick texture, which melts when it warms up on your lips and lasts for ages, so they feel supple and soothed for hours after application.

I absolutely adore the scent too - the balm contains grapefruit essence giving it a lovely, citrusy fragrance - which is right up my street.

There's also acacia honey and shea butter in the mix to repair skin.

The finish of the balm is very matte, so I love using this underneath my favourite matte lipsticks - MAC's Lady Danger (orange red) and Ruby Woo (classic blue red).

As an added bonus, the balm is housed in a very expensive feeling glass tub, making it a pleasure to use.

Nuxe Reve de Miel is available RRP €11.60 for 15ml from selected pharmacies and stockists nationwide.
