We do love ourselves a good multitasker. But when the product works hard and comes bearing cult fave status? Well, we just have to have it! That’s why we’re overjoyed that the Smith’s Rosebud Salve from Rosebud Perfume Co. is finally dropping on BeautyMNL: it truly doesn’t get any more classic than this.
Now, if it feels like every celebrity and their makeup artist swears by this salve, it’s because they do. Since 1892, the brand has grown its small but dedicated following into a beauty empire, with the iconic blue-and-white tin (and handy tube version) sitting pretty at the center of it all. You can’t miss it.
It’s not just a must-have because everyone has it, either—one swipe and you’ll know what we mean. The salve is as smooth as skin soothers get: healing chapped lips, cracked heels, and mild burns within minutes. Many of its devotees use it mainly as a lip balm, but savvier users have figured out a truly impressive list of ways to make it work. Below, you’ll find some of our favorite head-to-toe hacks. Scroll!


EYES: Makeup Remover
Use your ring finger to scoop out the necessary amount of salve from the pot or tube. With your eyes closed, gently rub the product over your makeup until it has completely broken down. Rinse off with cold water and a cleanser of your choice.

LIPS: Balm, Mask, & Gloss
Prep your lips for products with a hydrating swipe of the salve, which should take care of any chapping from lipstick use. You can also lock in even more moisture by wearing a thicker layer overnight, applying it like a lip mask. Lastly, you can dab it on over your lipstick for a plump and glossy finish.

FACE: Highlight
Apply it over your cheekbones, nose bridge, brow bones, and cupid’s bow—A.K.A. the points where light usually hits—for a glowy highlight.

SKIN: Relief for Burns & Dryness
This famous favorite is touted as an all-around healer, providing relief for minor burns and cracked skin. Apply over sunburns, dry patches, and rough joints to speed up healing and remedy aches.

HAIR: Brow & Flyaway Tamer, Lash Primer
Swipe a small amount over your brows before brushing through them with a spoolie to achieve your desired brow shape. For flyaways, apply the salve with your fingers over the areas you wish to tame. You can also prime your lashes by lightly applying it over the hairs and running a brow comb or spoolie brush through them.
