C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve Review

PR Sample: Hey Guys! Happy Saturday! Let me introduce you to C.O. Bigelow. C.O. Bigelow is an apothecary. As a matter of fact, they're the oldest apothecary in America. They started out in Greenwich Village in New York City. They carry many brands, such as the MARVIS Toothpaste I just reviewed. They also have their own brand of products. I've never tried any C.O. Bigelow products. PR sent me their popular Rose Salve ($5.50). It has a cult following. So I couldn't wait to try it. It's a multi-purpose salve that can be used on the lips, face, cuticles, elbows, knees and any part of your body that is very dry, chapped or has dry patches. I only tested this on my lips. The salve contains cotton seed oil, jojoba esters, lanolin oil and rose extract. The salve stays on the lips for hours after hours. When I removed the salve, my lips felt soft. There also seems to be some exfoliation. Did my lips feel moisturized? They were ok. Let me tell you my little gripes about this salve. As you can see, it's in a tin. The salve itself is gloopy and when you apply it to your lips it's slippery. It does adjust to your lips and stays on for hours, but the application can be kind of messy (at least with your fingers). You can resolve this by purchasing lip applicators, but who wants to go through all of that? So after trying this several times and the end result just being lightly moisturized lips its just not good enough for me. Now, realize I have extremely dry skin & lips. This salve may work better for someone not so dry. I personally feel there are better lip products out there. THIS ROSE SALVE does come (is offered) in a tube ($7.50) It's $2 more. So if you're interested in this, I would get the tube instead of the tin. It will save you from gloopy fingers or having to purchase lip applicators. What do I suggest to moisturize dry lips? Fresh Advanced Therapy Lip Balm. I also want to mention, that the scent for this salve is a light sweet scent. It doesn't smell like roses. This salve also has a light pink color.
