I had heard great things about this product for years so when I finally spotted it at Bed Bath & Body Works I couldn't resist. I actually don't find that packaging difficult to open at all. I like the vintage looking tin, though it's important to always have clean fingers before reaching in! I like this for temporary moisture on my lips, but it's a winner for my cuticles!
At first, I felt like it was too greasy on my fingers and was disappointed. But lately I have been using it just before bed massaged into my cuticles and even after the first night I noticed a difference! The subtle scent is beautiful. Because of the slightly greasy texture I wouldn't use it on my face as it recommend (it says for elbows, cuticles, lips, face, knees) My only gripe is that the product is very soft and easy to create a mess if you aren't careful... Overall I love it for my cuticles and *like* it for my lips. I would repurchase. continued >>
I always have this on hand. I love applying it to my lips. It's super soft and moisturizing and has a sutle scent. Hate the damn tin though - it can be such a pain to get open sometimes.
I love this Rose Salve. It's super soothing on my lips and stays on for quite some time. I've used it on my cuticles a few times, however I find it slightly too greasy for that use. My biggest issue with this product is the packaging. It's extremely difficult to remove the top. I don't know what it is about this metal tin, other products from different brands I have no issue with, but c.o.'s rose salve is just difficult to open. While I love the actual product, I probably won't buy it again because the tin is so hard to open.
I truly like this product. Smells good, works good... However, I am frustrated with the packaging. I just went to smooth the product over my chapped lips. However, I cannot get the dang thing open. What good is a product if you cannot use it because of the packaging?
this saved my cuticles and lips during the cold Canadian winter months and continues to do so! =)
this stuff is great! good smell, leaves lips and other chapped ares moisturized and my lips a nice shine. love it! the only thing is i wish there were more natural ingredients further up on the ingredients list.
This product is great! It moisturizes my lips wonderfully and leaves a nice shine on them. The smell is pleasant but not too over-powering. I personally like the packaging but I always make sure to only apply it with clean hands. I haven't used it in any other areas besides my lips, but I'm sure it'd be wonderful moisturizing other areas as well!
I love this stuff. I put it on my lips and cuticles at night, and use it on dry patches of skin on my hands. (I work in food service and dishwashing destroys my hands.) Everything is soothed, and not dry or chapped by morning. I would definitely recommend this!
This stuff is amazing. But the packaging is horrible. I couldnt get the top off and when I finally did my finger slipped into the rose salve and it wasted soooo much product and it also got everywhere! But besides the packaging that i hate I love the product! It smells really good and comforting. It smooths on your lips and moisturizes so well. This and the C.O. Bigelow my favourite lip balm are amazing! I will use them forever!
It is a good product. But only when your lips are cracked. If you lips are just chapped it doesnt really do anything but if they are cracked and it hurt it definatly works!! Ok packagng, it's hard to open sometimes.
