- Lip balm is moisturizing AND can act like a lip gloss. (Great for college or school when you don't have time for all that other makeup.)
- The color is perfect - slightly sheer with a tinge of reddish pink. Perfect for a healthy glow.
- The scent is okay... It smells like artificial chemicals .. and roses.
I got this at Bath and Body Works on sale. The tin is really cute. My sister has the same one though and she said it melts. So be careful not to leave it in the car.
EDIT: okay after awhile, this product starts to smell REALLY CHEMICALLY. So bad, that I stopped using the product. I would only use this when my lips really needed lip balm and there was nothing else around.
I love this, I use it everyday. I find this tin a bit easier to open than Smith's Rosebud Salve tins. It's also about a dollar cheaper than Smith's, at Bath and Body Works. The smell is different than what a lot of people are used to, but once you're used to it, it smells amazing. It is very versatile, you can use it not only on your lips but on your cuticles, elbows, knees, etc. There is no doubt I'll be buying another when I run out!
Very drying, but that's what you get when you use a petroleum-based product, for the most part at least.
While it does smell nice, I started out with greasy, slippery lips and ended up with dry lips within 15 minutes.
And as a face moisturizer, well it just sits there. I haven't experienced any breakouts though
I've had my rose salve for a good 2 years now and I still haven't hit pan. I use it for everything. Lips, cuticles, parts of my face. In the winter, when I go up north to visit family this is the only thing that saves my lips and cuticles. I also get really dry above my lip area if I have a cold and a bit of this is the only thing that prevents flaking. It's always in my purse no matter what. You can also make custom lip tints with it but putting a bit of salve in the back of your hand and mixing in a pink or redish pigment. Mix well with your lip pencil and apply it on your lips for an awesome, quick and unique lip gloss.
I like my Smith's rosebud salve as it provides a sheer gloss and really hydrates. This, however, may be good for elbows and other dry spots but I bought it specifically for my lips. But nothing really catches me of this, not the smell, not the product, and not the price. It is a pretty light shade of pink in the can though. That's about it.
i like the smell, feels good on my lips and nice cuticle cream...
sometimes i use a dab around my eyes too, or my my hands.. screw off pot, it can get stuck..
I bought this after reading how popular it was. Ive tried a couple other C.O. Bigelow lip moisturizers before & really liked them. My Favorite Lip Balm is great, so why not try others? I bought the Rose Salve & tried it on my lips for 4 days & I thought it was so good. I liked the texture, smell, & how soft my lips felt. That was until I got a bad pimple on the top of my lipline. I hadnt had one of those in years. I poped it & it kept coming back. I read the ingedients of the Rose Salve & discovered it contains lanolin oil & cottonseed oil. My face hated lanolin oil years ago resulting in breakouts. I know the problem had to be the Rose Salve. Now Im just using it to moisturize my cuticles, which works nicely. continued >>
I'm actually surprisingly pleased with this product. Years ago, I purchased its older brother/sister, Smith's Rosebud salve, and I definitely prefer this one. Smith's has a very strong, classic rose scent, while this one has a softer and sweeter rose scent that works better on the lips. It gives the lips a pretty, milky pink glow and has wonderful moisturizing properties, especially for red and irritated lips. Totally worth the 5 and a half bucks :)
Yes, this is just pink Vaseline with rose extract in it. But, it's great! This product has a much better feel than regular Vaseline. It leaves my lips soft, while giving it a nice rose tint and shine. The smell isn't quite a rose scent, but it's nice. I love that it's a multi-use product because after I apply some onto my lips, I can use the leftover balm on my finger to moisturize my cuticles. When the balm wears off, it leaves my lips soft and moisturized. The packaging is so adorable! I'm a sucker for cute packaging. My tin doesn't have the problem of being hard to open like the other reviewers have mentioned. Actually, I think mine opens TOO easily. The lid slides off very easily. But, other than that, this product is great. (:
I absolutely love this stuff! It is pretty much vaseline, but it has a beautiful light red tint added, which makes it more like a tinted lip balm. It moisturizes wonderfully and give lips the perfect amount of shine. It is tricky to open at first, but the container loosens up after a bit. I also love that it's a good value compared to other "miracle" lip products I've tried (it also works better than the Body's Shop's lip butter!). I definitely recommend this one! :)
