RéVive Intensité Moisturizing Lip Balm


Do you have hot lips? No, seriously, do your lips ever physically feel hot? Well, even if they don't, the cooling sensation when applying this is absolutely heaven. Strangely calming and soothing, somehow. (Lips, of course, being super-sensitive.)

We’re frankly more interested in the fact this is such a joy to apply than the fact it contains (so we’re told) ‘Nobel Prize-winning technology’.

RéVive Intensité Moisturizing Lip Balm leaves lips ‘quenched’ (that is honestly the only word for it), definitely smoother and – maybe this is an optical illusion – fuller-looking, despite there being none of the ‘bee-sting’ type ingredients more traditionally associated with that effect.

Metal applicators for eye products – which roll away puffiness as you apply – have always ticked our boxes. This is the first time we’ve seen the same technology applied to lips. (Though not the last, we suspect.)

And we’re wondering: what took so long...?
