Holy Grail: C.O. Bigelow’s Rose Salve

could write an ode to my favorite, HOLY GRAIL lip balm: C.O. BIGELOW APOTHECARIES ROSE SALVE. I bought my first one a couple of years ago, and since then I haven’t gone back. Here are a couple of reasons why this is my holy grail lip balm:

Once you twist open the lid, the smell of roses just hits your senses. It’s not overpowering which is great for anyone who has a sensitive nose (like me!) but the fragrance is just… heavenly. It’s faint yet pleasantly lingers.

I have terribly dry lips – they’re chapped, dry, flaky, and plain painful at times. Compared to all the other lip balms that I’ve used, nothing locks in moisture longer than this rose salve. Additionally, the product absorbs into my lips quickly; within a couple of minutes, I already feel a dramatic difference.

Not only do I use it on my lips, I love to generous amounts to my cuticles, hands, elbows, or any other areas that needs some extra Tender Love & Care. It’s like a lip balm + lotion hybrid. 😉

I’ve used Burt’s Bees, Chapstick, EOS, etc. and I always come back to this Rose Salve. Burt’s Bees and EOS lip balms both created an allergic reaction for me and it got worse the more often I applied it. There were rashes and blisters that would appear on my lips which were very alarming. I immediately reverted back to using the rose salve. After a couple of days, the rashes and blisters slowly faded.

I still use the same rose salve that I bought two years ago. And it’s just barely hit pan.

What’s your favorite lip balm? 😉
