Lip Saviours: Rose Petal Salve

Hey dolls! Just a quick post to share another of my favourite lip products with you. As I have mentioned before, I have quite dry lips generally and even more so during the winter and colder months. For years I used Vaseline, then switched to Carmex. Then last year in my October Boudoir Prive (now Jolie Box UK) box I received this:

My new found love: The Rose Petal Salve from Rose & Co Apothecary. I think I may be addicted! Jokes aside though, this salve is absolutely amazing. It really soothes my dry, chapped lips and makes them feel moisturised again.

The formula of the salve is thick and creamy and when applied on my lips it provides a barrier from the harsh winter weather. It can also be used to moisturise dry skin areas such as elbows, knees and just about anywhere! Not only that, the salve can be used like an eyebrow gel to tame unruly eyebrow hairs. It's a multi-purpose balm and it works brilliantly.

The ingredients are as above. The salve is quite heavily rose-scented, something I was not too fond of at first but have grown used to. I especially like to apply this at night just before going to bed. When I wake up, my lips feel soft, supple and smooth and not dry at all! The only downside to this product is the fact that it comes in a metal tin which you have to dip your fingers into. Personally for me, I prefer not having to put my fingers into products for hygiene reasons, but it doesn't put me off this lip balm - purely because it works so well.

I would highly recommend this product for those who suffer from dry lips and dry patchy skin. The salve can be purchased from the Rose & Co website at £5 and is available online at Amazon and other sites from as low as £3.99.

Did any of you receive the October Boudoir Prive box with this salve? What are your thoughts on it? Can you recommend any other lip balms that you think work well for dry lips?
