Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith's Rosebud Salve 0.8 oz

our price: $5.59
in stock

Is it as good as they claim? There's no doubt. Hard-to-find Rosebud Salve is considered the gold-standard of lip balms -- even jaded Beauty Editors (we're just one example) go crazy for it. Soft, supple, and slightly rose-scented lips result with every use.

I've wanted to try this product for a loooooong time, and finally just saw it again on here, so I ordered it. I know... very exciting tale. Anyway, gorgeous tin; the balm smells great, if you like roses, that is (I do); and then I go to use it. I don't know about you, but I don't like to stick my fingers into my balms unless it's some "balm emergency". I'll use my lips until I can no longer get at it that way. So I did so with this product, very lightly, and ended up with goop EVERYWHERE. This stuff is SOFT and SMOOSHY beyond belief. What a mess. But now I know. APPROACH WITH CAUTION!!! Store this somewhere cool. It's worth the extra measures because it is awesome. There's a reason people have been buying it since 1892! It's perfection in a pretty tin. It's hyper-lightweight, but stays on. It's flavor/scent are very light, but soooooo nice. And chapping? Buh bye... in ONE use. How's that? Granted, it was light chapping, but still...
This is definitely a buy-again. Even with the smoosh-factor. :)

I was so excited to get this because (like a fool) I wanted to use what the stars use. So lame! This product smells nice but tastes like glycerin. I have very dry lips and this did not penetrate or heal. In fact it felt like my lips were getting drier the more I used it! This might be better for someone who does not have sensitive lips. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because I use it on my cuticles (though it does leave my hands oily). I prefer Sally Hansen Lip Butter hands down!

    Comments about Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith's Rosebud Salve, .8 oz:

    Rosebud Salve is an okay product, I don't get why it's being touted as something special. I was looking forward to a pleasing scent! It has a faint dead roses smell and while the product is nicely moisturizing, it's an inconvenient package. While I'm not displeased with its performance, I probably won't buy it again.

    The only thing that isn't great about Rosebud Salve is the container;it's a bit difficult to open. Other than that, this is a fantastic, hydrating lip balm. It's sooo good I don't even want them to tweak the container! Who would have thought that lip balm could be so hydrating?!

      Comments about Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith's Rosebud Salve, .8 oz:

      For the smell alone I would give it five stars. It has the most loveliest light baby, rosy kind of smell that I really like. Sometimes I open the lid just to smell it. I dropped a star though because of the old fashioned tin lid which is charming but hard to open at times. Also I would say that it's basically a glorified petroleum product but I looveee the smell! Also petroleum is more of a protectant than a moisturizer so I usually use a moisturizing balm/oil before I use this.

      can't get it open

          Comments about Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith's Rosebud Salve, .8 oz:

          I did open it a couple of times, but I am giving up!

          I have average size hands, absolutely no arthritis or pain, and still can't open the tin because it is so small. It is about an inch high, and maybe three inches across.

          To open, you get ahold of the top with one hand, and the bottom with the other. Now you are holding about one-half inch in each hand. The top adhears very tightly, so if I ever get it open again, I am taking the salve out and putting it into an empty (little) jar.

          Too bad, as the tin is cute, but needs a better design, or stop selling such small ones, charge a little more, and put it into a bigger, better tin.

              Comments about Rosebud Perfume Co. Smith's Rosebud Salve, .8 oz:

              I am always on the lookout for a good lip balm and have horribly dry lips. This product has the most wonderful rose scent, and right when I put it on it makes my lips soft and smooth. However, it's rather thin and oily (I'm afraid it would melt if I took it outside), and the nice softening effect only lasts a few minutes. The lid fits so tightly that the tin is next to impossible to open if you close it all the way. I have to just leave it on my desk with the lid just barely sitting on top of it, which means I can't carry the product in my purse. Don't bother buying it; try Baby Lips instead--it's easier to use and it works much better.

                I bought this for the first time on a whim. I suffer chapped lips year round, and this cures and prevents chapped lips like nothing I've ever seen. I always have a tin in my purse, one in the kitchen, and another at my bedside. I also gave one to someone who was hospitalized last winter, and it helped him greatly.

                      I mainly use this on my lips, but it works great on cuts and scratches. My aunt used it in the early 1920's on a cut that refused to heal and it eliminated the scar. I wouldn't use anything else. I also give it to my grandkids for chapped lips and mouths.
