A reader by the name of Sunshine sent me an email asking me to check out Smith’s Rosebud Salve lip balm. Well, the truth is I’ve had my eyes on this product for a long time but I haven’t got down to ordering it. I should have, because it is available at Drugstore.com but I guess it slipped my mind during my last order.
According to Sunshine who has cracked lips sometimes, this Rosebud Salve (original formula) works like magic for her. “Upon application, it’s glossy and really moisturizing for lips,” she said. And she’s right that it’s highly raved by people who have used them.
A favorite of make-up artists and many women, this general purpose topical application mosturizes, relieves roughness and itching, eases skin irritation, and promotes healing. I have seen it recommended even on the Taiwanese beauty programs and at 3.7 out of 5 from 1299 reviewers at Makeupalley, the product must be quite a performer.
Rosebud Salves can be used as an all purpose skin preparation on top of as a lip balm; and is perfect for travel as an eye make-up remover, cuticle softener, sunburn easer, dry skin healer, and frizzy fighter. The company even suggest using Rosebud Salve around the eyes and on the throat for severely parched, dry, or wrinkled skin.
Rosebud Salve is available in original, minted rose, strawberry and mentholated flavors. Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm is a new scent available at Sephora.com which was designed to honor “Miss Vivian,” who is the President of Rosebud Perfume Co., Inc. and apparently comes with the delicious aroma of freshly baked berry pie.
