There are certain skincare products that you should keep close by 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – and the Nuxe Reve de Miel Repairing Super Balm is one of them.
Hailed as an ‘SOS skin protector’ the Super Balm has handbag staple written all over it. Why? Well, that’s easy – it’s as multi-purpose as skincare can be! Perfect for the face, body and the entire family (children over 3), this is a new skincare release that you shouldn’t let pass you by.
Here’s everything you need to know and all the ways you can use it…
What is Super Balm?
Super Balm is yes, you guessed it, a balm. But it’s not just ‘any old balm’, it’s quite possibly the most hardworking balm I’ve ever tried.
Not greasy or overly thick, the moisturising formula has an almost dry texture (similar to the iconic Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil if you’ve tried it) that melts into the skin almost instantaneously, leaving skin comforted, nourished and with time, repaired.
In the 97% natural origin ingredient list, you’ll find 6 botanical oils rich in fatty acids that replenish lipids in the skin and nourish. Added balloonvine and shea butter soothe and soften, and honey, rich in vitamins, repairs.
Why do I need it?
It goes without saying that our skin is easily affected by external aggressors. If it’s not our diet or hormones, it’s the weather and our environment wreaking havoc with our complexion. But it needn’t be all doom and gloom when it comes to our skin’s prospects; formulas like Nuxe’s Super Balm are around to help.
Super Balm has everything you need to keep your skin in tip-top condition, whatever it’s up against! Scroll for my favourite ways to use it…
#1 Treat Flaky skin
Scaly skin can happen all year round, for a number of reasons – sunburn, cold weather, acne medication and dermatitis, to name but a few. In order to keep flaky skin at bay, you need to keep it nourished, so the Super Balm’s rich formula couldn’t be better suited.
#2 Moisturise Dry Elbows & Knees
Let’s be honest, it’s easy to forget about your elbows and knees, but when they become dry you’ll not only feel it – you’ll see it, too! Because the Superbalm’s formula sinks straight in it’s the ideal choice for this task.
#3 Reduce Redness & Irritation
We’ve all experienced that relentless urge to scratch, and it’s hard to ignore. But because scratching can lead to infection, I suggest you use Super Balm to ease your itch. Not only will the formula create a shield over irritated skin but the application will also provide immediate relief.
Super Balm is also worth keeping close by when you’re suffering from a cold or your hay fever is rife. The balm works wonders on the redness and discomfort that forms around the nose due to constant blowing.
#4 Repair Cracked Heels
Modern day-to-day life often means many of us are constantly on our feet. Because of this, it’s really important to keep our tootsies looking and feeling their best. One of the areas of our feet that can show signs of wear and tear is the heel, so smother some Super Balm on them and pop on some cotton socks before bed. They’ll feel smooth and soft come morning!
#5 Condition Cuticles
Dry, undernourished cuticles can ruin your manicure result. The answer? Keep your cuticles cared for with Super Balm’s line-up of active ingredients. Apply a little to the nail bed and over time your cuticles will be transformed.
#6 Restore Dry Lips
When it comes to lip care, Nuxe is already the go-to brand thanks to their iconic Reve de Miel Lip Balm. But Super Balm is also a great option for the lips! Perfect for anyone that would prefer a slightly lighter alternative to the thicker texture of the original Reve de Miel Lip Balm, Super Balm works amazingly as an overnight lip treatment.
#7 Smooth Flyaways
Last but not least, this is one of the ways I’ve been using Super Balm most. When I’m sporting a sleek high bun or a slicked-back ponytail I use the balm to keep any unruly pieces of hair in place while I’m out and about. When hairspray won’t fit in your handbag, products like this are a lifesaver!
