Customer Reviews:

  • ok, defintely not a miracle product
    i think i bought this one for the nostalgic packaging, and the lofty claims. it's not too special. if you like this smell of rosewater, i'm sure you'll like it. it's pretty much useless for any other purpose. ;)...more info
  • Love the Sweet Taste and Smell, Hate the Greasiness.
    I will go back to stay with my lip balm, although I do like the sweet rosebud smell and taste, I'm not too crazy about the greasiness, and the fact that the moist effect does not last as long as expected. ...more info
  • Rosebud Salve
    It is essential oils in a petroleum base, but it comes in such a smart little tin that its worth the price. I prefer Burt's Bees for my cuticles, but I recommend Rosebud Salve as a lip balm. It does soothe chapped lips quickly....more info
  • Decent
    I like this product for dry cudicles, feet, knees, and elbows, but not neccessary on my lips. It tends to dry them out more, instead of hydrating them. ...more info
  • works well, but be careful!
    i purchased a tin of rosebud salve and had it in my pocketbook on a hot day, went to reach into my purse to get it and it had melted, the top had somehow come off and was all over my purse. be warned - it comes in a metal tin.

    as a lip balm, this works great and has a it also works well on dry feet (paired with cotton socks before you go to sleep) and chapped hands....more info
  • Overhyped
    I don't want to be mean, but I don't like this salve. It's greasy and I don't like the smell or taste at all. I also think it gave me some weird reactions -- caused an outbreak of some sort of lip eczema, yeah, doesn't sound very good does it.

    I know many people love this product, but honestly, I just wasn't impressed. Also, their website has no information about their status regarding being a cruelty-free company or not....more info
  • I can't live without it!
    I love rosebud salve... I don't use it to prep skin like most people, but I do use it just as a regular lip balm. It really makes my lips super smooth before I put lipstick, or I wear it alone and my lips look naturally more colored and glossy. It's a great price and lasts forever, I don't think I can live without this product anymore. I swipe it one several times during the day, whenever the thought pops in my head....more info
  • What a shock!
    I am committed to lip balm because I speak a lot and am in and out of doors frequently. This produyct had such a great rep that I really was looking forward to using it. What a disapointment! Somehow--from the name--I thought there might be a hint of rose or rose smell. Not at all. Instead the product is quite thick and heavy and has a nasty taste if it gets in your mouth. The tin is large and a good value for the price, but the edges on the tin are razor sharp and could actually cut a small child. Not recommended at all when so many other better products are available. ...more info
  • So-so
    Getting the lid open took quite a while because the lid was too tight and there was nothing to grip the oily cover with. Time to redesign the container!

    The salve itself was like Vaseline but smelled better and was not as thick. Like Vaseline, it is effective for dry skin.

  • Lasts forever
    I purchased 2 tins about 3 years ago and lost one at the airport this winter going through security. Now my other is getting low so these do last a long time. I had a really bad headcold last week and used this on my nose to prevent it getting raw and it worked great. My cold is gone and I don't have a peeling, flakey nose to show for it now. It does melt if you leave it in a hot place, like your car. ...more info
  • Since My Youth
    I used this salve as a child and thought it was no longer made. I found it by chance this site and immediately ordered. I still love what it does for my skin and lips and now my husband is a huge fan too! I love that the packaging has stayed the same after all these years. It's healing properties are unequaled....more info
  • Long-time Fav
    I've used the original Rosebud Salve consistantly over the past 5 years. I saw it advertised in a Shopping magazine and saw that it got nice reviews. Obviously it snagged me from the get go. I buy 2 now everytime I replenish my stock. Aside from my wallet and keys, this is the only other mainstay in my purse.

    I'll never wander....more info
  • not bad
    I bought this to see what all the hype was about and I found it to be nothing very special. it just seems like scented vaseline to me. ...more info
  • Nice product but pkg encourages bacteria
    I love the smell and like to put it on my lips at night, but dipping your fingers into this little tin repeatedly must mean repeatedly putting bacteria in it. I guess I could use a Qtip to scoop some out but then that's one more thing to add to my nightstand drawer. I wish they'd come out with it in a squeeze tube to avoid the contamination issue. ...more info
  • One for home, one for the office
    I confess that I first tried this product because I wanted to see what all the hype was about surrounding this "cult favorite". Well, I tried and I did see just what's so wonderful about this multitasking salve.

    First of all, the smell is quite nice, rose-y and baby powder-y. The tin is very cute too and I give it extra points since, unlike other tins, it's always easy to open. Be sure to keep it away from heat as it does tend to soften and could potentially cause a mess. It does its job very well as a lip balm since it's light and not sticky. It's a good moisturizer too, though I like it more in small areas like your elbows or parts of your hands. And I have to say it's really proved priceless as a cuticle and around-the-nail moisturizer (put some on, leave it for a little while, then massage in). Some other reviewers have recommended trying it on dry feet, I may try that some time. I guess the sky's the limit!

    In fact, I use it so much that I found that carrying it around in my purse and taking it out when I needed it only meant I either forgot it home when I wanted to use it at the office or viceversa so I did what I had to do and I'm now a satisfied owner of TWO pots of this little wonder salve. ...more info
