Minted Rose Lip Balm
Formulated by G.F. Smith's great-granddaughter, Linda, in early 2000's, 'Minted' Rosebud is my personal favorite of the new generation of our salves. At first I was surprised by the 'bite' of the mint, but now I love it, especially in winter. This one is a favorite with many of the family members, including my husband who finds the others too 'sweet' for his tastes. Linda designed the tin to look like the original Rosebud Salve tin from the early 1900s.
All-Purpose Uses: Rosebud Salve is perfect for travel as an eye make-up remover, cuticle softener, sunburn easer, dry skin healer, and frizzy fighter. Use Rosebud Salve around the eyes and on the throat for severely parched, dry, or wrinkled skin.
Healing Properties: Rosebud Salve can be used to help relieve hemorrhoids, diaper rash, psoriasis, alopecia, and dry scalp. At night, apply Rosebud Salve generously to rough hands and then cover with gloves for an overnight spa-like treatment. Apply Rosebud Salve generously to heels and elbows as well. Rosebud Salve helps to ease skin irritations due to colds, wind burn, insect bites, and “zits”. Rosebud Salve helps relieve the itch associated with chemical burns on the scalp resulting from over-processing (bleaching and coloring) hair."
Cosmetic Uses: Outline lips with lip liner of your choice about ¼ inches from the outside of your lips toward the center. Then use a lip brush to blend the salve to achieve a “pouty look”.Use Rosebud Salve alone or over your favorite hue of lipstick to moisturize and give a “dewy effect”.
Apply Rosebud Salve to eyebrows to tame an unruly brow line while also giving sheen.
Rosebud Salve is great on fly-away or frizzy hair. Dab a small amount on the palms of your hands and apply sparingly to tresses.
Use Rosebud Salve as a subtle accent to cheek bones, collar bones, shoulders, or any other body part that you want to moisturize or enhance.
Apply Rosebud Salve lightly to the skin above the eye as a base for powered eye shadow, and then add the desired colors you wish to dazzle your eyes with. The rich emollient properties of the Salve will help to hold that look all day."
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES
- SYNTHETIC DYES
Design: Each container enables the product to be versatile and multi-purpose. Makes great use on your lips as well as anywhere else on your body.
Color: All three lip balms create a subtle sheer color. If you want to apply a lip stain or lip stick, this salve makes a perfect lip primer as well. It will create a nice non-sticky gloss to them. These lip balms also create a smoother finish when you apply lipstick. It makes lip lines smoother.
If you want to skip the lip stain or lipstick and add color I would also recommend mixing these with a bit of blush (for instance, liquid blush or loose mineral powder blush) to make your own tint.
Out of the three, I personally find that the Minted rose balm has the most color. All three give your lips a nice healthy and natural glow.
Texture: Smooth, non sticky, soothing
Rosebud Salve - light Rose Scent
Strawberry Lip Balm - sweet Strawberry scent
Minted RoseBalm - fresh mint scent
Overall: This trio gives you a little bit of everything, with the rose, strawberry, and mint. Each balm is powerful and work really well. They are the perfect way to keep lips and everything else hydrated.
Excellent products and terrific value.
