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:

    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.

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

      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.

                  I've never had as bad a reaction to a scent as this one. As soon as I opened the container, the scent was overpowering to the point that I felt nauseous.

                  I'm not overly sensitive to most scents, so I'm surprised. I had to toss it. I bought this based on the high reviews and as a replacement to the out of stock Caswell Massey Dr. Hunter's lip salve, which I find the absolute best.

                  I love the product, but not the packaging. It's difficult to pry the top and bottom apart. The company needs to change its packaging for this product. I got so frustrated that I actually pound the cap with a pestle. The product itself works wonderfully. It has help sooth, smooth, and soften my skin dramatically. Just use a sterile spatula to remove the product into a clean/sterile container (the ones you get from hygiene traveling kits), and Voila! You can toss it into your handbag and you can open it without breaking a nail or two.

                  Hint: It would have been great if it was an twist-off cap.

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

                  I have very senstive and acne prone skin, such that if I put something on my lips I might be prone to break out right around the edge of my lips. With this Rosebud salve by Smith, however, I never break out when using it. It is moisturizing/healing if my lips are a little chapped or dry. And it gives my lips a very natural tint and glow, like it is hard to tell if I am wearing something or not, very natural but beautiful.

                  Three minor drawbacks: 1) it doesn't last for a very long time on my lips, so I have to reapply throughout the day, 2) in VERY hot weather I have had the product get really melty inside of the tub, 3) The application process (having to use my fingers instead of directly onto my lips) makes me worry a bit about how sanitary it is, so I only use it when my fingers are clean, which limits when I can use it.

                     – Finding the perfect treatment for dry, chapped lips might seem easy.
