Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve / $6
The smell of roses in a vintage-inspired tin. One of the best products to pop on your lips at any sign of dryness or dehydration. What's not to love? I picked this up on my way out of Sephora. You know how they put tons of cute little products right by the check-out? Sometimes I have the worst self-restraint. Oops.
I'd read quite a bit about this stuff before, about how good it was supposed to be on lips and other chapped bits. Apparently even burns and rough heels. Who would have thought? I mostly use this on my lips when I'm sat at home doing whatever it is that I'm doing. It provides a nice little bit of hydration and gloss, not too much and not too little. I think it's one of the best summertime "glosses" because it just barely adds a touch of color while keeping your lips feeling awesome in the hot months, and really, it's not a fussy product. No overly ridiculous stickiness or super sweet candy smells (don't get me wrong, I love me some sweet smelling glosses). Just a simple lip product for a simple makeup day.
This is also great to use before bedtime because waking up with super soft lips is one of the best feelings ever; no doubt about that. The only qualm I actually have with this product is (even though it's beautiful)... the tin. I hate sticking my fingers in a little pot of balm. It feels weird and unsanitary sometimes buuuuut I just found out they make a tube version of this now, so all is well. Win/win!
Have you guys tried this before? What are your favorite simple summer balms and glosses?
P.S. I might be a little less active in the next week or two. My camera is broken (RIP) so I won't be getting blogging done until I get a new one :( /sadtimes
