Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
Advantages: cheap, smells nice, compact tin, softens lips
Disadvantages: packaging could be more attractive, pink doesnt transfer to lips
I have had countless lip balms in the past, but the best one in my opinion for actually sorting out your lips has to be vaseline lip products.
I was never a big fan of vaseline, mostly because of the boring packaging and because they never used to come in nice flavours or colours. Recently however I discovered they did a Rosy Lips version which comes in a pink tin, an aloe vera one in a green tin and also a cocoa butter one in a brown tin. I was in boots and had to spend £15 to get my triple points and they had these at the counter so I quickly grabbed the Rosy Lips one.
The lip balm comes in a small pink and white 20g tin, which has vaseline written on the front and the barcode and ingredients on the back. The lip simply pulls off to reveal the lip balm inside, there is no brush or anything provided so you just have to apply it with your finger. The tin is small and compact so can fit in the smallest of handbags or even your pocket.
The lip balm itself is soft and pink and does smell slightly of roses which is quite nice. The ingredients are nice and simple, it is basically petroleum jelly with a hint of rose flower oil and almond oil.
Here are the actual ingredients as listed on the tin: Petroleum, rosa damascena flower oil, prunus amygdalus dulcis oil, aroma and linalool.
To apply you simply rub your finger over it a little, the jelly is quite soft and softens under the warmth of your finger aswell, then apply to your lips. It spreads over the lips well and you dont need alot to cover your lips, and it leaves them feeling lovely and soft. One thing I like about this is that it doesnt leave your lips sticky, I was disappointed however as it doesnt really leave my lips pink. Although it is pink inside the tin, the colour doesnt really transfer to your lips. Because of this I tend to apply lipstick over the top to add a bit of colour. Despite this I think it is the best lip balm out there for treating and caring for your lips, out of all the different brands i've used (and i have tried alot - some alot more expensive than vaseline) this is definitely the most effective. Now I dont go anywhere without my vaseline in my pocket or in my bag. As you dont need much it is also very long lasting and doesnt have to be replaced very often, but when it does need replacing its really not a problem as it only costs around £2 for the tin.
This is a really good balm for your lips and really does leave them feeling lovely and soft, even when they are really dry and cracked. Definitely worth the £2, next I am going to try the Cocoa butter flavour! The only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is due to the not so attractive packaging, and the fact that the colour doesnt transfer to my lips.
Summary: great long lasting cheap lip balm that effectively soothes and softens your lips
