Smith's Rosebud Salve Review

Smith's Rosebud Salve
Grade: A+
Purchase Price: $6.00
Purchase Place: Sephora
Available in: tin or tube (both $6.00 each)

I bought the Rosebud Strawberry lip balm about a year ago and loved it and I decided I wanted to to try the original since I liked the Strawberry. Now I had heard a lot of raving about the original Rosebud Salve before hand and I must say to me it does live up to it's hype. I got to be really honest even though I do like the Strawberry lip balm version, it in no way compares with the original Rosebud Salve. The overall texture, smell, and moisturizing ability is night and day between the two products at least to me, the original is the better product. One of the things I love about the original Rosebud Salve is it's texture it is so smooth and soft, I only need a little to cover my lips and it has a very nice feel, and not sticky at all. I also adore the smell of Rosebud Salve, this truly does smell exactly like a rose, very floral. I've never smelled anything quite like it before. I actually find myself opening up the tin just to smell it. Even though it smells like a rose it does not taste like one, in fact it doesn't taste like anything. It appears very reddish pink in the tin but it applies clear. I also find this to be very moisturizing, I apply at night before bed and I wake up the next morning with soft lips. I will even go as far to say that in all the lip balms I've tried over the years I like this one the best. This is a multi use product but so far I've only used it on my lips. It can also be used for not only chapped lips but chapped skin, diaper rash, blemishes, rough cuticles and more. I absolutely LOVE this product, and I am so very glad I decided to pick this up at Sephora. I'm actually considering getting the rosebud Salve in a tube to take with me in my purse, even though the tin is portable. I just don't like the idea of taking my finger that's touched god only knows what when I'm out in public, sticking it in the tin, and than on my lips...yuck! I guess I could take a lip brush or Q-tip or something and use it on the go but it just seems messy that way and more trouble. I don't mind the tin when I'm at home and can wash my hands before use, but on the go I would rather have the tube of it being that it seems a bit more sanitary, and not to mention less messy. The tin is a good sized product for only $6.00 it's 0.8oz which to me is a lot especially since i only have to use a dab to cover my lips. Overall this product is just wonderful and I can't say enough good things about it, it is a must buy, highly recommend!
