I’d like to think everyone has those products that take them down memory lane. Many moons ago I purchased a Smith’s at the checkout counter at Sephora. I remember I was specifically at the Downtown Disney location in California & there was some kind of special where I needed to spend 5 more dollars. Back then…this was likely the most affordable thing in all of Sephora so it was meant to be & I’ve been enjoying the various flavors ever since! This year they broke out a new one- Rosebud SalveRose & Mandarin…& I was right on top of it!
“This ultra-hydrating lip and body balm is formulated as an all-purpose skin preparation to heal chapped skin, razor burn, chaffed skin, diaper rash, or other minor skin irritations. It’s enriched with natural rose, mandarin, and exotic spices to deeply nourish and soothe the skin, leaving behind a delicate fragrance.”
Like the first balm I bought many years ago- I purchased this one in a tin. I know some people hate that & to you I say- no worries! They actually just released a convenient tube form which is pretty sweet! They didn’t have the tube which I purchased mine so I have the original tin format spiced up with some lovely artwork. & I totally dig it. Looking at both I think I still would have gone with the tin because I just love the look.
So how is the balm compared to others? I actually find this balm to be a but softer than my other Smith’s Rosebud Perfume Co. salves & maybe a touch more glossy? The scent & flavor is absolutely intoxicating- absolutely mandarin! It reminds me of peeling a real orange & even a bit of zest. I seriously love the burst of citrus so much! This particular balm also has a sheer peachy color as well which is perfect for summer. Basically- a new favorite!
I can never have too many balms or salves, how about you? Have you tried the new Smith’s Rosebud Perfume Co. Rose & Mandarin Lip Balm? I’d love to hear what you think!
