Hey all, so you all know that I am so much into skin care and one thing that I stock the most is lip balms. Yeah probably right now I have around 15-17 lip balms with me and am crazy about them. I cannot wake up to dry and chapped lips ever and I make sure to take proper care of it. Today I will review to you one of my favorite lip balms which is called as “Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm” which is from Rosebud Perfume Company. This was suggested to me by one of my blogger friends and I picked it up on my last trip at USA.
You can find this offline in all Sephora shops or you can buy online on Sephora.com. There are couple of varieties which are available for this lip balm. I picked up the strawberry one which seemed to be smelling great.
Price: USD 7.00 for 0.8oz [approx. INR 420/-]
The lip balm comes in a metallic round container which has an open and shut lid and is travel friendly. The one I picked is in golden color. The lip balm is in light pink in color and it’s very sheer. When put on lips it doesn’t provide any coverage. The shine imparted is less as well, so it’s not a kind of a makeup product or something like that. I would call it as a perfect lip care product. The flavor being strawberry it has got a sweet strawberry kind of fragrance. The fragrance is not at all strong or annoying so this seems to be comfortable to wear anytime. Also the lip balm is tasteless which is the best part since I avoid lip products that have a chemical kind of taste.
The Rosebud Lip balm is a semi solid product and needs to be kept away from sunlight or heat in order to avoid melting. I must say this is an amazing lip balm, and perfect for night skin routine. You will never ever wake up to chapped lips after using this lip balm. Not just that, but you will also be able to scrub your lips easily and the lips look more plump after using this lip balm. The moisture provided to lips by this lip balm is optimum. The lip balm is not greasy or doesn’t feel heavy on application. Half pea size is enough to moisturize your lips for around 8-10 hours.
Regarding ingredients, this lip balm consists of petroleum, so those who don’t like petroleum products should avoid using this lip balm. The balm also consists of Beeswax which is a boon for dry lips, most of the lip balms that I use have this ingredient in them.The only negative point I found for this lip balm was that it does not provide any kind of sun protection. For morning skin care routine I prefer to use a lip balm with spf underneath my lip products. So I prefer using Rosebud lip balm in my night routine. Here is the swatch of the lip balm:
Overall I am impressed with this lip balm due to the ample moisturization it provides, so gals if this is accessible to you just head out and buy this!!

- Sweet fragrance and tasteless.
