Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyL The Perfect Balm
I wonder if there is a clinical diagnosis for those obsessed with lip balm...oh, well.
So far, I have bought three tins of Rosebud Salve over the past few days: the original salve, Brambleberry Rose, and Minted Rosebud Salve. I love all of them, and have been annoying my friends by applying it every five minutes. My favorite is definitely the minted salve; it is cool, refreshing, tingly, and moisturizing. I have a problem with getting dry, chapped lips, and I absolutely hate it when I have that rough area on the inside of my lips. I really cannot believe how well this stuff actually works. It tastes and smells just like roses, and feels so luxurious on my lips. And for a fatty tin of miracle salve, I'd say six dollars is more than reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CorrinaCorrina Best. Period.
This balm is the best. It is simple, nothing moisturizes like it, nothing shines like it. Nothing comes close. And it is not only for lips. Use it to soothe bug bites, minor burns, or moisture starved elbows and knuckles. I love it.
One caution: it does not withstand heat well. DO NOT LEAVE IN YOUR SUMMER CAR. It will not seep out of the pot, but when you open it it will have shifted all over and be a gooy mess. It will go back, I use a spoon to reshape it, but it is best to avoid that pitfall in the first place.
Slight color and rose scent make me feel like I am in a Jane Austen novel every time I wear it. I use it over lip tint for shine and pout.

It's a lot like petroleum jelly with a little coloring and a hint of mint, but I like having the little tin in my purse, I even use it on my cuticles.
