A couple years ago on a hot, Indian-summer day, I decided to take a break in a very cool (in more than one sense of the word) place. The Barneyâ€™s New York cosmetic counter. I wasnâ€™t seeking anything in particular, but in my perusing I stumbled upon the most amazing lip balm. It didnâ€™t hurt that the salesgirl whispered in my ear, â€œYou just missed Jennifer Aniston, and she bought the Nuxe.â€ Good enough for Jen, good enough for me.
And since I tried the Nuxeâ€™s Reve de Miel Baume Levres I havenâ€™t been able to live without it. It has a creamy honey base. It isnâ€™t greasy or slick, so you can apply to the dry skin around your lips without worrying about break-outs. It really is lotion for your lips. I wonâ€™t go to sleep at night without it slathered on and itâ€™s gotten me through every chapped-lip winter since. In fact, while youâ€™re at it, buy two. Youâ€™ll want one for your handbag or desk drawer and one for the bedside table.
