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 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.

Natural healthy look

from Washington DC

Pros

  • Soothing

Cons

  • Not Long-Lasting

Best Uses

  • Daily Use
  • Treat Chapped Lips

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.

        I usually apply it with a cuetip or cotton swab because it can get a little bit messy when using with your hands. However, it makes a beautiful moisturizer, so if you do get it on your hands, not a problem.

        The darn cap is so hard to get it off. I don't have any hand limitations like arthritus. It's so hard to twist off I now just leave it in my medicine cabinet with the cap just placed and resting on the container which is not an ideal situation.
