Rated 5 out of 5 by troJANE My Go-to Beauty Product
it's pretty much the same thing as those drugstore jars of vaseline. as in it's use- dry lips, dry knuckles, cuticles.. the list goes on. but i'd sooo rather get this cute little vintage tin with a faint girly fragrance. Plus, it lasts me years before i have to replace the tin. i love this rosebud salve the most. but do recommend the minty version, as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by heyboo Totally addicted to rosebud
Have been using this for around eight years now and my only complaint is that I have now become somewhat addicted to it! Each coat has at least one tin of rosebud in it.
It has a nice rose fragrance. The fragrance is very slight though so it's not weird (seeing as how it's on your lips) and is flavorless.
The color looks pink but when you put it on, to me, it's transparent and I have very fair skin so would imagine it'd be transparent on anyone else.
This company has been around since 1892. When I was going through my 97 year old grandma's house, I found an old tin of rosebud salve that she used when she was young! And yes, it was the same rosebud that we use now. She said that they used it as a lip gloss, for chapped hands, and diaper rash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BohoHippieGypsy Perfect addition to any makeup bag
I have been using this stuff for years! First off, it's great for lips- it will restore moisture anywhere you rub it- and doesn't smell weird or super feminine. In a pinch, I have also used it as a face moisturizer (just wet your face and rub it in sparingly) hair pomade (rub it into fingertips quickly to warm it up, then apply to problem areas/ adding body/texture to pixie cuts) and used it to help soothe papercuts at the office. Leaves you soft, not greasy!
