Given the small price every girl should own this!i way prefer it to any other Vaseline product- it somehow just combines all the best things- and I think they struck gold with this product. It had a cleAr/slightly pinky tone to it, a really nice glossy finish (in a shiny not sticky way) a very delicate but attractive rose smell to it, and lasts forever- what more could you want!great on its own during the day or later over lip stick/pencil/stain etc for the evening. As good a lip balm as any in regards to moisturising- although I wouldn't use it on really cracked dry lips as it'd draw attention to their condition (if you see what I mean!)
This lip balm is only available in the UK unfortunately, so Ive gotten it from ebay. Purchasing this way makes it about $6, which isnt terrible, but it is a tad expensive. However, a tin lasts a long time. I was intrigues to try this after reading a bloggers review. I adore rose scents, and usually use Smiths rosebud salve, see my review. I know many people dont like petroleum, but I do find it to be an excellent moisturizer. This balm is typical vaseline texture and feel, not sticky at all. It has a definite rosy tint, more so then Smiths. Sometimes i like the tint, sometimes I dont. I would prefer this in a squeeze tube ( like Smiths has) so i could use it on the go, the rosy tint would be lovely out and about. But since the tin isnt so sanitary for that way, i mainly keep it in my room and use it at night and just before heading out. But it doesnt last all day, so not being able to reply is an issue. When i use it at night, I apply generously which means i get the tint around the sides of my mouth. This will also happen if youre not careful applying it any other time. When applied correctly, it looks gorgeous and keeps the lips supple. The scent is not as strong as Smiths, personally I prefer the stronger rose scent but others may not. This one is a bit of a nutty rose scent since it has the almond oil in it. All in all, I like the balm a lot and use it from time to time, alternating with Smiths. If this came in a squeeze tube, it would be even better.
I am in Canada and this product isn't available here. That's too bad because, this lip balm is very good! I ordered mine from Ebay, and it came pretty quickly from the U.K.
The packaging could be better, I was not happy that the lip balm came unsealed. I was told that's how they all are, which is pretty weird.
The product itself is very good. It's moisturizing and the moisture lasts for quite a while. It has a slippery texture, which feels slightly oily. The scent is slightly rosy, with nutty undertones. On my lips, there is a slight shimmer but no real colour.
I also have the Rosebud Mint and C.O. Bigelow salve. Out of the three, I love the C.O. Bigelow best. I bought three tins, so it will be a lobg time before I run out.
I love this lip balm. I was given this by my boss awhile back and it lasts so long. I tend to have periods where I am using this all the time then I leave it somewhere and forget about it and then rediscover it all over again!
It's very moisturising, smells lovely and leaves a hint of pink on the lips. Pity that I haven't found anywhere in NZ that sells it so will have to try and track it down somewhere online or persuade a friend to send it to me from the UK.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this earlier! I have like 4 cans of this lying around everywhere! This is by far my favorite lip balm. Keeps my lips in tiptop condition, gives a nice color, smells (and tastes...) good and it's very cheap! HG lip balm!
I love this product. The shimmer pink that it leaves after applying is just fabulous, the smell and the retain value is amazing. Finally the one lip balm, i'll be buying again and again and again. :)
This is a fabulous product.
The packaging is little and cute but can be very difficult to open.
But it's what's inside the little pink tin that's truly special. Obviously, given that it's from Vaseline, the balm is moisturising and keeps your lips looking smooth and shiny. It also sinks in really nicely and is not sticky after a few minutes.
This product also has a fantastic pink colour hit to it- a real 'my lips but better' colour for me. The colour is very long-lasting and perfect for a natural look.
You can also pop this on your cheeks for a cute, rosy look, although it is very hard to blend out and dries quickly so a cream blush may be a better choice.
Overall, one my makeup bag staples, and great for a natural look.
It moisturises, it's a life safer in cold weather, and it gives you a rosy pop on your lips? what more do you want? Although I do wish it came in chap stick form so it was more hygienic, this tin will suffice for what it's doing for my lips. I love layering a nude lipstick over this too as some nudes tend to wash me out, but blending this and the nude together creates the most beautiful colour, so that the lipstick does not go unwasted! Definitely recommended
I just love this lip balm! Vaseline Rosy Lips has been my staple lip balm for years now and I am definitely not changing!
There are some people who aren't fans of petroleum jelly as a moisturising agent and say that it can make your lips drier, but I don't find that to be true. I've used this for years and my lips are no drier now than they used to be.
Everything about this product is fantastic - the price is brilliant, the tint is noticeable yet wearable, it is long lasting and is available everywhere.
A little application of Rosy Lips and some eyeliner can make me look so much better - as it is just a hint of colour, it isn't overwhelming and is subtle. The glossiness of balm isn't sticky and gives a sheen without my lips sticking together like with lip gloss!
I can't leave the house with a tin of this in my pocket. I would be devastated if they discontinued this but thankfully, as there would be national uproar, I can't imagine it happening!
I just love, love, love this!
I like this, I have used both the Vaseline and the Kruidvat knockoff (available in the netherlands and I think belgium) Some people hate petroleum based products, to each their own. For me, vaseline products are for protection, not healing. Since vaseline just sits on your skin, it won't fix problems but it will maintain and prevent things from getting worse. That is why people do so well with this balm in the winter if their lips are otherwise ok- it protects from the wind.
As such, I use this balm as a two step process- i put something "natural" under it (shea butter, lanolin, whatever), let it sink in, then use the vaseline to "seal" it. Love. I don't have to reapply so much that way, either.
The rosy lips has a faint soapy floral smell. On both brands the smell fades pretty much instantly. If you like the smell and the texture of the Vaseline Rosy Lips but do not want as much pink, the Kruidvat knockoff. I personally use the Kruidvat version because I always run my balm a little over the edges of my lips, which doesn't look so good with a strong tint.
The Kruidvat also comes in a tin, but its color is a metallic dark pink. I don't like the stick version of the Vaseline I have bought in the UK because it is more drying and less emollient- the ingredients are not exactly the same. I just make sure my hands are clean when I use the tin.
