When I bought this product
I bought this lipbalm while on holiday in the USA in 2011. The first thing that caught my eye is the packaging, it has an almost victorian or vintage feel to the labelling which appeals to me.
The balm itself comes in a pot rather than a twist up stick and you apply with your finger. The actual balm feels soft and smooth and not at all greasy or tacky, it slides on the lips easily and has a nice scent and a slight tingle from the mint. It leaves your lips with a nice sheen and a hint of colour. The balm leaves my lift soft and well hydrated, I have even found it to be helpful in soothing the sore skin you get at the bottom of your nose when you have a cold.
In the USA i was around £3 for this but in the UK it is not widely availible and as a result prices of around £5 seem to be charged. This is more than is charged by other brands but in my opinion Smith's rosebud minted lip balm is a far far superior and quality product.
