When it comes to lipbalms I always prefer budget proof ones. Lipbalm is just not a product I think should cost a lot of money. There is only one exception to that, which is the Rosebud Salve. A few years ago they were finally available in the Netherlands and I just had to try one because of all the good things I had heard about it in the past couple of years. Recently I bought a back up, which is when I decided it was time for me to review this little wonder. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, keep on reading!
First things first, the packaging. As I mentioned in the intro I have the lipbalm twice in my collection. The funny thing is that they both have a different packaging. I was kind of confused about this until I read the back. It turns out that the one on the left is made in Europe and the one of the right in the US. This is why the packagings are different. I personally prefer the US packaging, but the other one is not bad too. The packaging looks kind of vintage to me and I really, really like it. The little tin container contains 22 grams of lipbalm, which is quite a lot. Therefore one container will last you quite a long time.
There are a lot of different versions of this Rosebud Salve available. I have the Minted Rose version. This one stood out to me the first time and ended up being really amazing, which is why I bought the exact same one the second time. The nice thing about this one is that it smells really good and the mint creates a really nice sensation on the lips.
For those of you who don’t like the smell of roses, don’t worry. The name says Minted Rose, but you mainly smell the mint. There’s only a hint of rose in it. You could compare it to the scent of the red Vasaline lipbalm and mint. I really like it!
The product itself is red. It’s not super clear but it’s also not creamy looking. The texture is actually really nice. It’s not a thick heavy lipbalm. Instead it’s pretty thin and lightweight, which is one of the reasons why I like it so much. Because it’s pretty thin and super blendable you’ll only need a teeny tiny bit of it to moisturise your lips. Besides using it as a lipbalm, this product works really nicely for dry patches as well. Therefore it’s the perfect lipbalm to carry with you in your purse.
When it comes to moisturising the lips this lipbalm is a winner. When it’s completely gone after a while your lips will feel extremely soft and moisturised. I sometimes struggle with pretty dry lips, but after using this once it’s completely gone. When you use this a couple days in a row your lips will be completely fine again.
Over all I think it’s clear that I love this lipbalm. I wouldn’t buy a backup if I didn’t like it right? I’m in love with the adorable packaging, I love the scent and it works really, really well. It’s a little more expensive that the lipbalms I would usually get but I think it is totally worth it. If you come across this you should definitely give it a try!
The Rosebud Salve Minted Rose Lipbalm is available at stores like Etos, Douglas and Ici Paris XL for €10,95.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know if you’ve ever tried a Rosebud Salve lipbalm!
