smith's rosebud salve: chapped lip hero!

just a super quick little post while I'm off on my jollies! I've been meaning to give this lip balm a shout out for months!

I'm a constant victim of chapped lips and have a ridiculous amount of balms and potions but other then my elizabeth arden 8 hour cream (good but rather skinky to those with sensitive noses) this has been the only one that has helped lately.

I grabbed mine in american apparel when I spotted it at the till. I'm not going to lie I loved the old school packaging which was the main reason I purchased it so was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the actual salve.

it smells of roses, strangely pleasant and feels liquid and soothing on, it's probably the only balm I'd carry with me on a daily basis and does help to condition me ol' lips!

so if you're in the market for a balm you may want to have a sniff of this one! they come in a tube but also in a retro tin if that's more your style! they're available on eBay and amazon and in store in american apparel!

have you got any lip balm favourites? I'm always on the hunt for recommendations so let me know!

back soon!
