The gorgeous Rêve de Miel collection by NUXE already has stellar reputation as essential products for dry and sensitive skin, and now the French brand has added two new products to the range.

NUXE is one of the best-loved French beauty brands for a reason; they hold a deep respect for nature, they value the protection of bees and create only the highest quality goods.

To prepare yourself and our skin for the harshness of winter, Rêve de Miel will now have a rich balm for the face and a silky, melting oil balm for the body. Just when we thought we couldn't love them more than we already do, NUXE only go and gift us with two glorious goodies.

1. Ultra-Comforting Face Balm, €29.50

NUXE's face balm is a divinely comforting treat for the skin, and has become an essential staple for dry skin both at night and during the day.

Its ultra-rich formula provides a medley of nourishing, soothing and repairing active ingredients: Honey, Shea Butter, Safflower Ceramides and precious Botanical Oils

The face balm also contains Propolis Oleoactive, a 100 percent natural, French active ingredient. They make sure to use an eco-friendly extraction method for their ingredients.

Propolis is produced by bees and contains over 300 active molecules with anti-oxidant, soothing, nourishing, repairing and purifying properties.

2. Melting Body Oil Balm with Honey, €25.90

The glorious oil balm provides an effective response to intense dryness using highly-concentrated nourishing properties.

The body oil balm has a high concentration of fatty acids (Argan and Borage Precious Botanical Oils), which provide the skin with maximum nutrition.

Its silky balm texture melts over the skin and transforms into a fine oil when massaged, cloaking the skin in a beautiful potion with luscious notes of Honey, Mimosa and Vanilla. We can't get enough of it.


3. Deliciously Nourishing Body Scrub, €26.50

This two-in-one scrub is honestly a delight, featuring Honey, Sugar Crystals and Precious Oils for exfoliating and nourishing the body in a single step. 

On contact with water, its balm texture transforms into a lotion, covering the skin in a soft protective veil. If you want to refine and smooth the skin's texture, this should be your go-to product.

4. Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel, €20.50

This rich gel for your face and body uses honey to cleanse, with a gentle action thanks to its botanical-origin cleansing base.

Use in the shower or add some to a warm bath for skincare perfection. Its scented notes will soothe both your skin and mind, it's self-care heaven.

5. Repairing Super Balm with Honey, €20.90

This product combines the concentrated strength of Honey with Beeswax and precious Botanical Oils to nourish and repair very dry and weakened areas of the face and body.

Balloon Vine diffuses its soothing properties to relieve sensations of tightness and itching. Use on your chin, elbows, heels and sides of the nose for healing effects.

6. Hand and Nail Cream, €9

We dream of having this silky potion with Honey and Botanical Oils within easy reach at all times, to deploy its nourishing, anti-oxidant and repairing properties all the way to the tips of the nails, with no sticky or oily effect.

A must-have product to protect hands from wind and cold this autumn/winter. We hate the feeling of chapped hands, but NUXE have solved all our dehydrated skincare problems.

Even though 'Winter is Coming', there's no need to have a skincare panic moment. We adore how the French brand truly value and respect nature, and it's reflected perfectly in their Rêve de Miel range.

Nuxe is available from Arnotts, selected Boots, Cloud 10 Beauty, Lloyd’s pharmacy, McCauleys pharmacy and all other major pharmacies nationwide.

The 12 shades have been designed to give a 'retro golden glow', which sounds like a sweet treat to us. Who doesn't love a good glow?

They added; "Reach for our go-to shade Amber (it practically glows), create the perfect hazy, smoked-out eye with Sting (warm brown matte), or get hooked on Honey (intense gold metallic) for the ultimate ’70s statement eye."

Oh dear. This is not good news, and certainly making us all reconsider our snack options.

This month’s Journal of Nutrition includes a report that offers an interesting discovery about the affects different sweeteners can have on our health.

The study was done to see how much high-fructose corn syrup can negatively affect your health in terms of diabetes and obesity risks.

A common thought is that natural honey is a far wiser option for health conscious individuals than artificial corn syrup sweeteners.

As it turns out, the health benefits of both were, in this study, almost identical.

The study, which was actually funded by the honey industry, the research team gave subjects honey, cane sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. They measured their blood sugar levels, insulin levels, body weight, cholesterol and blood pressure.

The only significant changes was an increase in a specific type of blood fat that can be a marker for heart disease. This increased following subjects trying all three different types of sweeteners.

Lead researcher Susan Raatz and her team were surprised that corn syrup, given it’s terrible reputation, had at least in chemical terms an effect on the body that is “very, very similar” to natural honey.

"Honey is thought of as more natural whereas white sugar and high fructose corn syrup are processed from the cane or the beet or the corn,” Susan explained.

“We wanted to find out if they were different. But chemically, they are very, very similar, and that's what it seems to break down to."




The 2003 film Honey told the story of a fiesty music video choreographer – played by Jessica Alba -who shakes up her life after her mentor gives her an ultimatum. It wasn’t the most successful of films, but according to the real life Honey Rockwell, it was a rip off of her life.

Rockwell is a hip hop dancer and teacher, and she’s suing the film-makers as the character shares her name, her ethnicity, occupation and hometown. According to her, they even used the same dance studio where she once taught.

It’s taken her a while to get her lawsuit in order, but she’s making up for it by suing for her share of the $70 million generated by Honey and its sequel.
