I used to use this back in my highschool days.. and i love it sooo much! It smells like a real rose and I cant stop using it on my lips and dry areas like my elbows, nails, or wherever! My lips look shiny and hydrated and it has a subtle pinkish reddish tone that looks very natural. I need this. Please restock beauty mnl!!

Give your lips a good time

I wear lipstick everyday and so lip balm is a must. I don't bother applying during the day which is why I need a great balm to put on at night. This is it! Rediscovered this the other day after a whole day of wearing matte lipstick and it did the trick. So soothing! It smells great, and the packaging is to die for.

First ever rose salve I have ever used. I thought the dry spots on my face needed a little more love than what it is getting. This is what I use after I wash and tone, every time. It helps keep certain parts of my face from drying. I like the scent it has as well. I also use it as lip balm before going to bed mostly, and each time before I put on my Burt's Bees Lip Crayon as it can prevent my lips from drying which can lead to chapping.

An old favorite

This is one beauty product that I always ask my friend to buy for me every time they get to go abroad. I love this lip balm so much that I have been through countless empty tins of this product. It is a really rich lip balm that remedies my chapped lips overnight. One tin can lasts for ages too!

Has a lot of uses

This product is so cheap yet so practical. I use it for my lips mostly but also for my hands and nails. It's CO Bigelow so it's a great product. I just wish they produce this in a tube version so it lessens contamination of dirt. I have to wash my hands really clean before I use it.

Petroleum Jelly's Hip, Sweet Smelling Cousin

I got my first tin as a gift from my sister who lives overseas. I've been using the product for almost a year now. This is like the hip cousin of petroleum jelly. It's more fun! I like the faint smell of rose and it moisturizes my dry face without feeling heavy on the face and being oily afterwards. I love how you can also use this not only for the face but your entire body. I only thing that disappoints me is that it doesn't work on my lips. Nevertheless I am still a fan and will restock for sure. Good to know too that I can now get it here.
