Questions & Answers for Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve

Question
is this product suitable for me??
I have had chapped, dry, itchy, and wrinkly lips for over 7 years now..
I've tried many lip care products but doesn't seem to be right for me (caused chapstick addiction.??)
Is this product really good? because I'm looking for something that does not cause itchiness, dry after the lip balm wears out, and won't cause addiction.

Sounds like me before I started using this product... This Salve has really turned my lips completely around. Before I used it, my lips would peel to the point where they would start to bleed. Exfoliating just made the lips raw and soar, and chapsticks just cause and 'addiction' that made my lips worse. Then, I used this product. Literally, within 24 hours you could see a complete turn around. Within less than a week, my lips were smooth and soft. I DEFINITELY think you should try this product. Hopefully it will work for you as it did for me. Good luck!

Oh my god, that sounds horrid! I would seriously recommend seeing a derm before anything else, but if you'd prefer not to, or don't have the money, I'd use a lip scrub, made with natural ingredients, and then start applying, as it's really only meant to moisturize.
Burt's Bees is really good for healing and lip recovery, I used to apply that below the rosebud and it worked great. It's not addictive at all, never cause me any itchiness, and is really moisturizing. Hope this helps!

oh my gosh yes! I HATE chapstick. it doesn't work on my lips. this is perfect, nonsticky, and the only addiction you will have is that you'll love it so much you will continue buying! the lips do stay moisturized, but i suggest putting it on in the mornings after you wet your lips for extra moisture. great for all the time use though, my lips can get really cracked and chapped and this product heals without stinging or sticking.

Given the condition of your lips I would try using a scrub ( if you take sugar and add a drop of water it makes the right consistency) and then a heavy duty lip care product ( nI would recommend Blistex Intensive care cream) it comes in a white tube in a small red box)...Rosebud is good for maintaining lip health not necessarilly rejuvinating lips.

I know what you mean about chapstick addiction-- I've always had kind of dry lips and lately I've been avoiding wearing lip balms because they seem to just make my lips drier after they wear out!
But this is seriously the best lip balm out there. It's the BEST for lips, not addicting and your lips will feel so soft whenever you use it! I found myself not having to use it as much either since my lips didn't get as dry. And you can use it on dry blemishes, hair flyaways, cuticles, dry knuckles and elbows... anywhere! It's miraculous, won't make you break out, and FOR SURE won't get your lips addicted-- although YOU will be addicted to this product because it's amazing!

This is more glossy and way less waxy than Burt's Bees, it also doesn't have peppermint so you don't get that nice tingly feeling, unless you get the minted rose balm (which I haven't tried yet), but it smells great, in my opinion. I still own and use both, just to mix it up.

I find Burts Bees to be too waxy. Rosebud is more petroleum based. It works well on lips and dry skin. It's easy to throw in your bag, comes in a cute tin, and can be multi-purposeful. Also it smells like roses- a nice subtle floral scent.

This is waaayyyy better than Burt's bee's but that is because I don't like waxy things on my lips. This doesn't have much of a smell at all, faintly like rosewater - perhaps. This is also a multi-purpose balm/salve so you get more bang for your buck as you can use it for other things.

This is completly different than Burt's Bees. Burts Bees give a cooling effect, this provides a glossy finish, and it also heals chapped lips. It smells slighly of rose water. I don't think this is as intense as Burt's Bees, I love Burt's Bees thought, but I use this every night.

It's way better because you can use it on everything (like cracked knuckles, dry cuticles, and of course, parched lips). It also lasts much longer and adds a glossy coat to your lips. You can even wear it over lipstick. It smells like roses, but it's not overpowering. It also comes in a minty scent.

I believe the ingredients are vegan friendly. They contain a white petroleum jelly base, cottonseed oil (extracted from the seeds of various cotton plants), and "amarol" which is a secret recipe of a mix of essential oils. As far as what I know (and can google): no animal products.

The ingredients are as follows: Pertolatum, Lanolin Alcohol, Synthetic Wax, Natural Flavor, Artificial Flavor. According to wikianswers, most manufacturers test pertolatum on animals. That says nothing about the Rosebud Perfume, Co. Unless you contact them directly and pose that question, I would generalize the above statement and say no, it's not vegan.

No. The base is made of petroleum jelly which is non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores). I believe it has something to do with the fact that the petroleum jelly particles are bigger then the size of your pores so it won't get int and clog it.

It works great if under your nose is slightly dry (from blowing it, dry weather, etc.) I've never used it between my eyebrows, but I don't think I would try it. It leaves a glossy sheen, and that might not be something you would want around your eyes. It has never clogged my pores, but I've never used it around areas where I get pimples (i.e. on the tip of my nose, around/above the eyebrows, forehead, etc.)

The short answer is yes. On the package it says "A trade secret blend of Essential Oils (Aromol), Cottonseed Oil in a special Petrolatum Base."
Which means essentially is a Petroleum based product.

The following is printed on the tin.
Contains - Cotton Seed Oil, Aromol, with essential oils blended in a special petrolatum base.
I looked up encyclopedia.com for the word "Petrolatum" and this is what i found. Hope this helps you.

petrolatum , colorless to yellowish-white hydrocarbon mixture obtained by fractional distillation of petroleum. In its jellylike semisolid form (known as petroleum jelly and also by several trade names) it is used in preparing medicinal ointments and for lubrication. As a nearly colorless, highly refined liquid known as liquid petrolatum, liquid paraffin, or mineral oil, it is used as a lubricant, as a laxative, and as a base for nasal sprays.

Hi,

I think the petroleum base is the inert base that most oinments use, including those that are medicinal. The helpful ingredients need to bind to something to make them usable and to make them stay on skin.

This is a great salve.

Hope this helps.

Petrolatum is the base for most all lip balms. Its just petroleum jelly. (a.k.a Vaseline)

Most definitely! I use it around my eyes every night after my bath. It softens and conditions my skin, great for the colder months to come!

yes, you can use the salve around your eyes - i think, but am not positive, that it contains vitamin E. in any case, i really don't think it would cause any allergic reactions. it's extremely gentle on any skin type.

If the eye area is dry/flaky, yes. You can also use it as a back-up to remove eye make-up. Use cotton balls, pads, or tissue.

I had some minor skin peeling (because of a rash) on the bridge of my nose and to the sides of my nose underneath my tear ducts and I smoothed some salve on them at night and in the morning the skin was softened and less flaky. I would say good to use around your eyes :).

Hi! I don't see why not! You can use this for everything! I use it for the obvious (lips) and bug bites, chapped noses from blowing too much and anything else I can think of for my boys and I! I am gonna have to try it myself! Even if it doesn't workaround your eyes, the price and many uses makes it an excellent beauty buy!

I know you can use it as an eye primer before makeup, so I'm assuming it's safe for use daily around your eyes. You only need a tiny bit.

I have used this on my eyelids in really dry weather but it's not something I would normally do. It has a consistency just a tiny bit thinner than vaseline. I don't think it would hurt you at all but it might feel sort of thick.

I have used it sparingly around my eyes before, but it's a bit too moisturizing to use there for me. I prefer something that "soaks in" a bit more than this for eyecream. It works better for me as a lip salve or a "rescue moisturizer" for those occasional dry patches on my face. Good luck !

I would be cautious using anything that isn't opthamologist tested or approved around the eye area. If you think it really might work I would call their customer hotline and inquire further.
