Product Obsession: Rosebud Salve (in a tube!)

 I know, I know, I'm late to the party on this one.  I've admired the cute little Victorian-inspired tins and incredible rose scent of this product for years, but ultimately never bought one because, well, it was in a tin and I detest applying lip balm with my fingers.

But now!  Those lovely geniuses at the Rosebud Perfume Co. have managed to package the famous Rosebud Salve in a tube!  Hooray!  I can have deliciously smooth rose scented lips too, but with no messy fingers or icky bacteria-ridden tin!  And so can you.

It's not a lip gloss, but it's not exactly a balm either.  What it is, though, is a miracle.  Rosebud Salve fixed my poor chapped lips after just one application when no other lip balm would.  That alone is enough to make me pledge my undying devotion to this cult-favorite product.  Another plus is the price: at only $6 per tube or tin, it's an incredible bargain.

It turns out Rosebud Salve is useful for healing other ailments, too, like minor skin irritations and cuts or burns.  How fantastic is that?  Neosporin isn't packaged nearly as pretty and doesn't smell anywhere near as nice.  If my chapped lips are any indication, Rosebud Salve works fast.  I'm probably going to buy another tube just for these purposes and alternate it with Neosporin the next time I get a scrape.  I'll let you know how it goes...

  1. YAY....this is one of the best lip salves ever. I agree about the finger/applying thing however, for this product, I gladley dipped my finger in the tin.
