Product Review: C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve #016

I’ve been a fan of Smith’s Rosebud Salve for a few years now, so when I saw that C.O. Bigelow had their own version of a rose salve available in a few different flavours I decided to check them out. First things first, I love the packaging of these balms. They’re bright and colourful and the little tin is sturdy enough to be chucked into a handbag without having to be concerned about the product spilling or being damaged. The balm itself is just as hard working. It’s thick, it feels nourishing, and it lasts a long time on the lips before re-application is needed. The smell is also amazing: sweet, strong and fruity. The salve is designed to be multi-purpose but I stick to using it solely as a lip balm (as I tend to do with most multi-purpose balms). Unfortunately it wasn’t until after I wrote this review that I realised that this balm is not readily available for purchase online (sorry!). I purchased mine using parcel forwarding service Hop Shop Go from Bath & Body Works online a while ago, but the product no longer seems to be available there. I did stumble across a few listings on ebay though, so that option is available. It is also available on Amazon (listed by a private seller) for $6.90 USD for any Americans that are interested.
