Review - Smith's Rosebud Salve

Rosebud Salve
This cult-favorite, multi-purpose lip balm soothes dry lips, calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. Try dabbing on dry elbows or knees to condition, and relieve dryness. Also an excellent remedy for the treatment of diaper rash.

Honestly, I can't believe that no one has reviewed this awesome lip balm yet! This is probably the best lip balm I have ever had, it is so rich and thick. It doesn't taste very good, so you aren't licking your lips all the time, but it smells like roses. The smell is elegant and the sheen is delightful. This salve can be used on rashes and other chapped skin all over your body. It is in a very convenient little tin that really stays shut, so you don't have to worry about goo getting all over the inside of your bag. I would definitely say this is one of the most versatile fixatives I have found, it should be in everyones make-up bag.

Sheba says: You are so right about this lip balm. It begins to work almost immediately. I like the fact that it does not taste good -- it lasts longer with me not licking it off all the time. The scent is really beautiful without being overpowering. (I have had some lip balms that I could not wear -- your lips are so close to you nose and the balm just took over and I couldn't smell anything else.) Like Deedlejuse said it is as good on chapped areas. It healed my hands after putting wood in a fireplace resulting in very chapped and cracked skin. It is very small and can fit into your tiniest little bag so you can always have it with you without any problem.

I've never tried the other two, but I am absolutely in love with the Mario Badescu. I've used so many lip balms as I have exceedingly dry lips & this is my favorite. After reviewing the balm with SPF 15 I went back to MB and bought 2 more w/out it for use in my home.
