Smith's Rosebud Salve
This cult-favorite, multi-purpose lip balm has been popular for over 100 years. An Old Family Standby Since 1895, this world-famous salve has been re-discovered by Hollywood stars and makeup artists. Rosebud Salve is still a favorite to aid in the relief of chapped and dry skin, blemishes, diaper rash, and detergent burns. Rosebud Salve is also a wonderful lip moisturizer and natural looking lip gloss. It moisturizes dry lips, calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. Try dabbing on dry elbows or knees to condition, and relieve dryness. Also an excellent remedy for the treatment of diaper rash. The original flagship product, Smith's Rosebud Salve remains our top seller. A glossy, non-sticky, non-waxy, texture makes this balm stand out. Only a dab is necessary, ensuring that one tin lasts a very long time! Mix with lipstick for extra shine. During allergy and cold season, dab on a dry, irritated nose to relieve discomfort.


Strawberry Lip Balm
Introduced by G.F.Smith's grandson Allen in the 1960s, Strawberry Lip Balm is our number two seller, this product is formulated to aid in protecting and moisturizing the lips, cuticles, and elbows from the drying effects of the weather. The aroma of Strawberry Shortcake attracts Hollywood Celebrities, Skiers, and Sun Worshipers alike.

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."

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

Scent: 
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.
