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 Fruity Lip Perfector is ideal for moisturising and adjusting the pH of your lips to show off their natural colour. It comes in a handy stick form, and uses a plumping formula for enhanced texture. We love how the yellow shade turns pink when it touches your lips, such a gorgeous treat.

Winter can be an absolute pain when it comes to your precious lips. We need them for so many things, especially kissing for Valentine's Day, but the bitterly baltic weather does it's best to dry them out.

We were intrigued by the science behind it, so asked Marie Therese, Head of Training with Graham Anthony Distribution, for the 411 on why our lips lose their coveted moisture.

She explained that our lips can become very dry because our lips do not have working sebaceous glands, which would serve the purpose of keeping our lips moist. Harsh conditions and ageing are also key factors.

Cracks can appear as we grow older, and thinning can take place. In the winter, saliva containing amylase and maltase strips away the skin on our lips, leaving them exposed to dry air. (EW)

Basically; take care of ya mouth (Inside and out). We're talkin' dental, we're talkin lip balms, we're talkin' lip moisturising.

We've got you covered for the day of luuuurve; try any of these for February 14 and your lips will thank you for the kissing treatment.

Winter is in full swing ladies, and it's only getting colder by the day. 

Rumour has it we are even expecting snow in the next few days, and so we must prepare ourselves. 

Image result for chapped lips

The cold weather can have a very hard effect on your lips, leaving them dry, cracked and sometimes even sore. 

In light of this, we have come up with a lovely little list of ways you can keep those lips soft and smooth…

Image result for lips

1. Balm it up

It might sound funny, but you should apply a balm to your lips before you wash your face. Many facial washes and cleansers actually dry out the lips, leaving them raw to the elements. 

2. Oil is your friend

Instead of using lip balm, why not try almond oil on your lips? It is hypoallergenic, and contains contains free radical-fighters vitamins A and E.

3. Cool as a cucumber

If you have sore and dry lips, slice up a cucumber and place it on your lips for an hour. It will cool them, and moisturise them at the same time. 

4. Spicy no no

Put down those wings ladies, because spicy food is killer for chapped lips. Spices can really dry out that pout, AVOID! 

5. Exfoliate

Keep that pout silky soft by exfoliating as much as you can. You can mix sugar with almond oil, for a lovely DIY lip scrub. 

6. Avoid picking

This should go without saying, but you should avoid picking flaking lips! 

7. Stay away from matte

Matte lipsticks will totally dry out your lips. Stick to lipsticks with conditioners like vitamin E, oils, and shea butter.

8. Water is KING

Honestly, water is the most important thing of all. Keep your entire body hydrated this winter by drink water as much as you can.

There you have it ladies… pucker up!

Beauty is a funny thing. And as we grow up we hear, and listen to, a lot of beauty advice. 

This can come from our mothers, grandmothers, friends and… (now) bloggers, but there's some things that we're told that confuse the hell out of us. 

Here are some examples of beauty ironies we all need to follow:

You have to cut your hair to grow it

This one is often split down the middle as some people listen and some don't. But it's true, in order to make your hair grow longer, you have to cut it to get rid of the dead and nasty split ends. Now, go forth to the hairdressers!

 

The stuff you do to make your eyelashes look longer can actually break them

Miley Cyrus's recent incident is the perfect example of this. We wear mascara most days, which can dry out your lashes if not removed properly. We use a strange metal clamp to curl them, which can actually be quite dangerous (especially if your dog comes running at you) and some of us even get extensions, and when not done properly, can majorly damage our lashes.

 

The more you wear lip balm, the more you need it

Did you know this? Well it's true. Lip balm actually dries out your lips in the long run, leading you to buy more lip balm to get your smackers soft again. It's a vicious cycle. *face palm*

 

The more you squeeze your skin to get rid of the bad stuff, the more bad stuff gets in

We know it's tempting but this one is so true. Don't squeeze your skin. Ever. 

 

We put on a slab of make-up and call it 'no make-up'

Yes, we want to go for the natural look… but wearing foundation, mascara, bronzer and highlighter isn't actually all that natural.

Lip balm is one of those things where the more you use, the more you need to use – and it can get VERY annoying.

Weaning yourself off the gooey goodness isn’t easy, but it can be done! Here’s how:

Stop licking your lips
It’s hard to do when you’re not using lip balm, but you should really try. Licking your lips provides them with moisture which just evaporates, taking more moisture with it as it goes, which leaves your lips even more chapped.

Use a different lip balm
One that doesn’t contain menthol or lanolin as these ingredients can irritate your skin, which will have you reaching for the balm once again.

Don’t go cold turkey
Try and make the break slowly. If you use it every hour, try stretch it out to every three hours. When that becomes easier, stretch out the time again until eventually you are lip balm free.

Brush you lips
At the end of the day, brush the dry skin off your lips with an old toothbrush, and then apply some olive oil to give them some moisture for the night.

Seriously, it’s a thing. A joke thing, but nevertheless, at least you know you’re not alone in your stuggles! They even have a 12 step program!

I love adding a splash of colour to my lips – it’s one thing that can totally transform a look and give you an extra confidence boost. But did you know that over a lifetime a woman can ingest around 9lbs (the equivalent of over four bags of sugar) worth of lip product?

Knowing that, it definitely makes sense to choose a natural option when it comes lip colour and thankfully Burt’s Bees have us covered. Not only do their products offer your lips exceptional natural care (their new Coconut and Pear Lip Balm is to die for!) but they also deliver a fantastic range of colours too.

Along side their beautiful tinted lip balms, lip shines and lip shimmers, they have just launched a new range of lip glosses. These glosses are highly pigmented and provide long lasting colour with a touch of pearlescent shine, while also being non-sticky. They have shades to suit all skin tones, with colours like Rosy Dawn and Spring Splendor that are perfect for fairer Irish skin and with over 18 shades, you’re bound to find the perfect one for you. Their lip shimmers also have some gorgeous on-trend coral shades that would pair perfectly with a light gloss like Sunny Day.

And don’t forget that Burt’s Bee have a wide range of body products that will nourish and protect your skin using carefully selected, all-natural ingredients. They’re even safe for the most sensitive skin types, leaving you feeling bee-utiful inside and out.

Lip balm is for your lips, we all know that, but did you know that it is not the only use for it? In fact, the little tub that you have in your bag has a least five other uses that will make you face palm for never thinking about it before.

Does the job of a nail cream
No nail cream? No problem. Just rub a little lip balm onto your cuticles to moisturise and keep frayed edges down.

Tame your brows
Tame unruly brows by dabbing a little layer of balm over them to keep them in place.

Remove your ring
Put your ring on but now can’t get it off? Rub a little lip balm around the finger and voila!

Stops bleeding form shaving cuts
If your other half nips himself while shaving get them to dab a little balm onto the cut and it should stop the bleeding

Who knew such a small tub could do so much!

If your make-up bag weighs the same as a bag of flour, then it’s quite likely you have products in there that you probably forgot you even owned.

While it’s okay to have nearly every beauty product on the market lying around the house, there’s no need for you to carry everything with you on a daily basis.

Here is all you need to stay fresh for a day:

Concealer
Where would we be without it? Concealer hides a multitude of sins, from nasty blemishes to unwanted dark circles.

Mascara
A good coat of mascara can instantly transform your face.

Blusher
A bit of blusher on your cheeks can make all the difference in the world. It will make you look rosy and alive.

Lip balm
There’s nothing worse than having cracked lips. Not only are they sore, but they’re also not pretty to look at.

Liner
One to shape your eyebrows and one for your water line – pencil liner is a God-send really.
