OK so first of all let me say that I had been looking for this product for MONTHS and had started thinking of it as a unicorn because I was never able to find it anywhere in NYC. Granted we miss out on the fun Walmart and Target type shopping where I can get lost for hours in those huge cosmetics aisles but I can usually find the DS products I want SOMEWHERE. Anyway, after all those months I finally spotted some today in the Chelsea Bed Bath & Beyond and snapped it up.
My biggest concern about this product was that they would have overdone the rose tint, making the product fuchsia, too bright or not natural-looking as a MLBB shade. I am so glad that they erred on the side of UNDERtinting this product. It really is so subtle -- just the hint of a rosy tint and you really do not look like you are wearing lip color -- your lips just look alive and healthy. I have relatively colorless lips on a pale face so I am able to see the subtle and natural boost that this product provides. Absolutely for those with deeply pigmented lips, this is barely going to show up as color. For my purposes I think they got the color just right.
As far as the texture and moisturizing properties -- I think ratings on this (or any lip balm) are going to vary widely according to personal preference. Personally, I have tried them ALL (there are so few lip care products out there I have not tried -- from $ to $$$$$) and I am perfectly content with this one. I don't find it particularly sticky, it moisturizes adequately (my HG for moisturization remains Kiehl's #1 IN THE POT, NOT THE TUBE), and I barely notice the rose scent. After recently giving in to the hype and dropping major bank on Baume by Terry for the first time, I have to say I probably prefer this product overall for its general comfort and moisturizing. That is no small statement considering I paid upwards of $60 for that pot of BBT and about $4 for the Vaseline. I do think the BBT makes lips look pretty but not $65 pretty if you ask me.
With regard to the packaging, I think the tiny little Vaseline pot is the cutest thing ever. I wish the lid attached, because it is easy to accidentally drop a detachable lid into the NYC subway and never see it again, but not a big deal. I am looking forward to using this product and hopefully being able to find it in store again (!) to replace it and buy multiple pots for home, office and travel.
This version of the Vaseline lip therapy line completed my collection. I fell in love with the other two and thought a slight tint would completely rock my world. I think my lips are pretty pigmented to begin with, because I don't notice much color from this...which is the point, I know, but still.
The rose scent was a nice surprise.
A great product. Super adorable. Super affordable. But I wouldn't repurchase this particular "flavor"
I just saw this at Target today and snapped it up. They were out of my BFF Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers. This stuff is my jam, though. I like the slightly gooey consistency, faint tint, teeny little Vaseline-looking jar, and slight rose scent. I will stockpile, not just repurchase.
Bought this a few weeks ago because I've been loving using vaseline on my lips lately- it seems to be the only thing that can repair them. They have been chapped (painfully so!) since December (below the lip as well). I wanted a travel size Vaseline with a hint of color for everyday use- so I bought this. Pros: Travel-Friendly, cute packaging, nice color payoff, nice scent, moisturizes lips well once it soaks in. Cons: STICKY! Ugh, that was the only frustrating part. So, so sticky until it soaks in. Over all, would repurchase :)
Guess I was duped by the latest "beauty awards" from Redbook. Shame on me. This is petroleum jelly, pure and simple. There is no discernable "rose" tint to the lips (I am light/medium, blue eyes, brown hair.) It's just plain ole' Vaseline, repackaged. Always moisturizing, but nothing different.
I love Vaseline on my lips it works great and keeps my lips supple all morning when I apply it before bed time. So I wanted to buy a pocket sized Vaseline jar and found this rosy lips on sale. I bought it and it smells like roses and it's almost no ingredients in it but Vaseline and red color. I am allergic to lipstick, lip gloss and Chapstick and only Vaseline as only works on me and I love rose scent in the rosy lips. You apply it two times a day or three. Not like other lip hydrators that need to be reapplied every half hour. I wear it alone or under my lipstick to keep dryness and flaking and irritation away while still wearing my favorite lipstick. I just don't like putting my bare fingers in it due to germs but I do live this little rosy lips Vaseline jar.
I got this because I've been using the giant tube of vaseline on my medicine cabinet as lip balm and thought, "a smaller jar would be good cause i can take it anywhere!" the regular vaseline has more shine and slip when i put it on my lips. this lip therapy felt like glue to me. the rose scent is nice but the texture is something i cannot tolerate. on my lips it felt like wax and sure my lips are moisturized but i can get that from my regular vaseline. i threw it away.
This is a really affordable and moisturizing lip balm. I use it every night and like the faint scent of rose.
I have no idea why anyone who isn't a fan of rose-scented products would buy this balm. It clearly says "rosy lips" on the package...thus suggesting a bit of a rose scent, no?
As far as the product itself goes, I quite like it. Moisturizing, adorable packaging, portable, and a bit of a...shall we say?...rosy tint.
Fits the bill, for me.
I LOVE the rose scent, and the color in the tub is pretty. On my lips, it really doesn't show as tinted at all (though my lips have a lot of color naturally.) The product is ok as a barrier but is not especially hydrating in and of itself. I also don't like having to dip my finger into the tub. It can definitely feel a little goopy.
Didn't hate it but won't buy it again.
