Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm

Hi everyone. Just two days ago I caught the cold bug and let me tell you - my lips have been chapped and dry like no tomorrow. My usual favorites weren't doing much for me; Blistex Complete Moisture, Blistex Slik N' Shine & the Blistex Medicated Lip Balm, so I had to go out and find one that would last and kept my lips soft. I was at Sephora a few days back and I remembered Fuzkittie talking about the Smith's Rosebud Salve. I was going to pick that up, but I was thrown off by the smell. Geez, the Rosebud Salve smells gross! I have no idea why so many people like it, ha. Instead, I picked up its counterpart, the Minted Rose Lip Balm.

Price: 7USD online (I purchased for 6USD at the Sephora Store)
Weight: 0.8 OZ.
Recommend This Product?: Yes!

Its a coral-red color in the tin, but it comes off clear with a nice glossy finish. It has a vaseline/petroleum type of feel to it, but I don't mind and it doesn't feel sticky and thick like vaseline would feel on my lips. I do like how glossy it makes my lips look, it takes out the extra step to applying gloss. It has a light peppermint scent that isn't over powering and the tingle it leaves on the lips isn't strong either. Its a subtle tingle and it feels really nice. The lip balm lasts quite a while and that's great as I don't have to reapply as often.

If you have dry, chapped lips in general I really recommend this product. It is on the pricier side compared to most lip balms, but it works really well. The good thing about Sephora is that you can test out most of the products at the store before purchasing them.

That's all for now, and I'll be back with more make-up demos hopefully by this weekend. Talk to you all soon ♥
