Nothing beats the old standby, Vaseline jelly, for protecting our tender lips from the elements. Vaseline protects, promotes healing and leaves a soft sheen to the lips. I spotted this teeny tiny Vaseline Lip Therapy jar at the drugstore, and, lo and behold, it was tinted a deep pink! Lip balm junkie that I am, I bought five – two for my daughters and a couple back ups for moi. We all love it and at the easy cost of $2, it has quickly become a Purse Necessity.
It reminds me of Smith’s Rosebud Salve, but less shiny/glossy, which I prefer. It has a very soft and sweet rose scent, also softer that Smith’s Rosebud Salve. It feels and behaves on the lip just as you would expect petrolatum would – softens, but doesn’t last long on the lips. Which is why it’s perfect for the purse. I got mind at Walgreens, but Rosy Lips is not listed on the US Vaseline site. It’s listed on the UK site, but it’s in a cute little retro tin.
