Today, I thought I would share with you my favourite lip care duo: the Nuxe Reve de Miel and the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish. The combination of these two products gives me such smooth and hydrated lips. It’s like what the combination of a face scrub and moisturizer does for your face. I’ve been using lip balm for as long as I can remember, but it’s only recently that I started to use a lip scrub. I’ve found using a scrub makes such a huge difference to how lipsticks and stains look on my lips.
I’ve previously written about my love for the Nuxe Reve de Miel (you can read the blog post here), and it remains my favourite lip balm. One pot lasted me almost 8 months, and I haven’t found another lip balm that does as a good a job at keeping my lips hydrated overnight.
The Fresh Sugar Lip Polish is a great lip scrub. It’s got little pieces of sugar (hence the name), which exfoliate and a mixture of oils and shea butter that hydrates the lips. It’s similar to the the Lush Lip Scrub, however I like this one better because I find the pieces of sugar are smaller and don’t feel as rough on the skin.
While I use the Nuxe Reve de Miel every night, I tend to use the combination of the two products 2-3 times a week, usually at the same time that I’m doing a face mask. I start with the Sugar Lip Polish, and use a tiny bit all over my lips and then remove the excess with a face cloth. I then layer the lip balm onto my lips and go to bed. The newly exfoliated skin on my lips, absorbs all the moisture from the lip balm and when I wake up, they’re smooth and hydrated.
So there you have it, my favourite lip care duo that gives me smooth and hydrated lips. Perfect for when I want to wear a matte lipstick and have it look great on my lips.
Thanks for stopping by!
