Today is lip pick Wednesday! In case you are unfamiliar with lip pick Wednesday, every Wednesday I have been reviewing a new lip product for the month of January. Due to the frigid temperatures in Toronto, I have decided to focus on lip balms. The lip balm I am reviewing today is C.O. Bigelow's Rose Salve, that I purchased from Bath & Body Works. The salve is a budget product that currently retails for $5.50 and comes in a really cute circular tin. Although the tin may appear to be a small, a little goes a long way, so the product will last for a long time.
I have been using the rose salve on my lips for a couple of days and it feels so nice on my lips. Although the product is applied on with my fingers, it does not go on my lip heavy. In fact, its creates a nice smooth base on my lips that feels highly moisturizing. I have noticed that from continual use, my lips have been less dry and are no longer chapped. I also really like the fact that the salve is multi-purpose and can be applied to other parts of the body (e.g. elbows, knees, cuticles) basically any dry areas. I must admit, multi-functional products are my favorite, because they can do the same job as other products, which helps to save me money. I also really like the rose scent that is infused in the product. It gives the salve a very nice floral and feminine feel when applied to my lips.
I personally enjoy using this product, and I highly recommend it others to try out this winter and even to use year round.
Do you shop at Bath & Body Works? And have you tried out the C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve?
