Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
Advantages: Cute tin, nice texture, pretty colour, subtle, natural.
Disadvantages: None that I can see.
This tiny tin of wax is really an excellent addition to your summer wardrobe.
It's very much like the normal Vaseline, but of course with a subtle pink tint. When you smear it on your lips, it's not obvious that you're wearing any colour on them. It's like a blusher in a way, just a very sweet tint, enhancing your natural colour. It's very rosy and so I like to wear it on days when I'm not really wearing much make-up - sunny days are best - when you're wearing something pretty, or just dressed down, because it just makes you feel naturally pretty. As it pinks your lips up a tad, it also adds to the contrast around your lips as well - bringing out either a paleness or a tan.
Of course, it's hydrating as well. And in this respect works as well as other lip balms - although if you have properly dry lips you really can't beat Cymex (which I've also reviewed). But if all you need is a tiny bit extra, then this does do the trick. It has a nice solid, substantial texture which you can rub in to the lip, or let sit with a bit of a sheen.
The tin itself is very retro. I don't mind using my fingers to apply, rather than a stick, as I think it's kind of cute and you have better control over where the product goes. It comes in tins of 20g and smells very faintly sweet. It apparently has rose and almond oil in, which is a nice addition.
Summary: Loooove it!
