Customer Review

on July 29, 2012
It's hard to believe that there is a popular cosmetic still around that started in the Victorian era. 1892 to be exact.
Smith's Rose bud salve/lip balm is still valid today, just as it was 100years ago. We are returning to the lost
and gotten formulas of the past. Not that this was lost or ever forgotten.
I love the packaging, please don't ever "update" or change to become modern. I love having something vintage by
my bed side.
The real reasons I'm writing this, as you see I could go on and on. Is the product itself. Yes it is part petro based,
but it's high grade petro, and it's mixed with cotton seed oil, which is highly lubricating and an excellent source of vitamin E.
Not to mention the rose oil, which is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and soothing to dry, rough, sensitive, and re-
active skin. Many countries use rose oil to treat break outs, irritations, and the like. As I've mentioned and even the other
reviews show this product has been time tested. Over 100 yrs and going.
Use as a lip gloss, a chap stick, with a lip brush mix with your favorite lipstick to create a softer version of your lipstick.
Use while snow sking on cheeks for windburn. Rub into cuticles at night before going to bed. Keep by bedside.
Use as brow groomer, use on lids for for glossy lid look. instead of expensive eye gloss pots. Also, on blemishes,
minor burns, insect bites. It's suppose to cure diper rash.
Remember it's anti-inflammatory. Some say use on rough knees, elbows, feet. That just
seems to use up really fast, and I don't want to use something from one container on my face that I'm using on my feet. (But I bet
it works.) The one I use for those areas is Elizabeth Arden's 8hr cream, which has been around for ever, and is also sold here on Amazon.
