Review: Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm

So I've been using it since I got it, and I really like it. It is....amazing! It smells crazy good- like fresh strawberries. When applied to the lips, it "quenches" their thirst like a glass of ice water on a hot day. It just sinks in, instead of most balms which simply lie on top of the lips until licked or rubbed off. Aside from sinking into the lips, it keeps them feeling hydrated and moisturized for quite awhile, with no stickiness or residue.

The ingredients are incredibly simple- the entire list fits on the back of the tin(petrolatum, vilvanolin, natural white beeswax, a "trade secret" blend of strawberry flavor, natural and artificial dyes) While there is no abnormal color, I prefer that. It's incredibly natural and easy to wear for work. It does good for wearing at work, and at night before you go to bed.

I totally recommended this for everyone. Beyond all the great great things I listed above- the price is AMAZING. You can purchase a 0.8 oz tin for only $7.00 USD.

My new lippies- Initial impressions

Ok, so I just got my package of lip goodies, and am gonna make a post on my initial impressions, because I don't really have time to use and write individual reviews on each item right now.

Here's what I ordered(in not particular order)

My initial impressions are going to be of the packaging and smells.  The LipFusion has very nice packaging, a metal tube that I won't have to worry about opening on its own- it has a cap that needs to screw off. The Dior has *very* nice packaging- it's very pretty and feminine. The Buxom packaging feels very cheap in my hands, being made almost entirely out of plastic. But! It does have a saving feature- a small mirror in the cap.  Rosebud has a simple metal tin.

As far as smells, the Rosebud came out on top- it smells amazing! Buxom comes next; it's got a very unique vanilla-coco smell that I really like. The Dior balm came in absolutely last- it's got a very "old lady flower perfume" smell to it which I just don't like. I'll try it out, but unless it does something amazing for my lips, I'll be swapping it out. The LipFusion doesn't really seem to have a smell.

Some new lippies

I ordered a new fragrance, one I've wanted for FOREVER and along with it, I ordered three or four new lippies. I'm so excited to try them all out. I'll be posting reviews on them after I've tried them all out.
