I use a lot of lip balm – which means I try a lot of lip balm. But I always go back to my favorite during the dry winter months. Smith’s Rosebud Salve ($6 for .8oz) is simply the best at keeping my lip moisturized and soft. It’s also pretty budget friendly, unlike the much talked about Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm that rings in at $28 for .25oz of product, so I like to have multiples that I tuck away in my purse, my desk at work, and my nightstand.
I personally think that the Rosebud Salve is just as good (if not better) than the Dior Creme de Rose. Bold statement, I know! (If you’re feeling spendy though, I wouldn’t say no to picking up the Creme de Rose. It’s a great product.)
I also like to use this salve in the summer on sunburned lips. It’s cooling, smooth and hydrating in all the right ways. It has a soft scent of roses which I absolutely love, it’s not for everyone but it’s subtle enough that it wouldn’t bother most people.
Have you ever tried Smith’s Rosebud Salve? Do you have any other must-have lip balms that I should try?
