Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
Advantages: Good moisturising, nice consistency, good price for this one
Disadvantages: I struggle with the lid if it gets greasy.
I can't stand dry lips and this time of year I tend to get it really bad. My lips get dry and cracked and then they get really sore so I like to use a moisturising lip balm to prevent this from happening. I've used the original Vaseline lip therapy before but when I spotted this pink one in Superdrug promising rosy lips I decided to give this a try instead.
The petroleum jelly comes in a little round tin. This one in paticular is half pink, half white with the Vaseline logo written on the top in big white letters. They're easy to spot on the shelf as the packaging has been the same for years. You get 20g for around £1.89 although I have seen them on offer for a pound from time to time.
I thought the lid was going to screw off when I first came accross the Lip therapies but it just pulls off. When the tin is new, this is really easy and convenient but I tend to find after I've used it a couple of times, the lid is really hard to get off, probably because I've shut it with greasy fingers last time. This can make it a nightmare to open, especially if you're not at home as you can't clean it either so be careful of this with yours!
The product itself is a rosy pink colour and is the same consistency of the normal vaseline you buy in the tubs. It has a slight floral fragrance which is probably the rose oil. It's very easy to use and because it isn't too runny or too hard, its easy to get the right amount to rub onto your lips. When I apply it, I tend to rub it vigorously onto my lips so I'm rubbing it in rather than just putting it onto the surface.
The results are super soft lips! I didn't notice much of a tint, but my lips were a little bit more pink than usual. The product lasts quite well on your lips provided you don't keep licking them. During the winter, I apply this as often as I can remember which is usually about four or five times a day. This has kept my lips feeling soft and moisturised and has prevented them from getting cracked and sore. Another good thing I noticed about this product is that it doesn't have a taste. Because it is pink, I assumed it might have a fruity taste which I've been told you shouldn't use as they make you lick your lips more which makes them even more dry.
As well as the Rosy lips lip therapy, they also have some other varieties. You have the original which comes in a dark Blue and white tin which is more like the usual vasline you get in the tubs. They do one containing aloe vera in a green and white tin which I haven't tried yet and they do a new one in a pink and black tin. This one is limited edition and has Pink bubbly written accross the front in a fancy font. It's £3.49 for the same sized tin. You can normally find all of the Vaseline Lip therapy tins in shops like Asda, Superdrug, Boots, Wilkinsons etc. They're the perfect size for your pocket or handbag so they're great for when you're on the go.
I'm quite impressed by this lip therapy. It does what it says on the tin and has prevented my lips from getting sore this winter so far so I'd definitely say it's worth the £1.89 I paid for it, if not more!
