This company was founded in 1838, and was originally in New York where a cat named Allegra was able to roam the store and mingle with customers. This is of course, from Wikipedia so take it with a grain of lip scrub.
I tried to make this part more exciting with an exclamation point! Did it work? Anywhoo, Rose Salve contains
(Cotton) Seed Oil
Rosa Canina Fruit Extract
The only thing I know out of that list is petrolatum, which I just realized is not Vaseline, so I know none of them.
Something interesting is that Rose Oil isn’t listed, and it is the main part of the Salve.
PRICE – $5.50 from Bath and Body works
Consistency – ooey gooey – no really touch it
Scent – there is a light rose scent, but it doesn’t last
I use it on my lips. I keep it under my pillow so that I can use it in the middle of the night, and it soothes my dry lips all winter. I have been known to put it on my cheeks if they get really wind blown and chapped, which happens despite the copious amounts of moisturizer I use morning and night.
What else can you use it for?
lips, face, cuticles, elbows, knees, chapped or very dry skin patches…
I feel lost without this little tin of balm, which begs the question why on Earth do I not have more than one?
