Review of Smith’s Rosebud Salve



Nice sleek packaging.


Doesn‘t really help my dry lips.


I‘m probably the last person on earth to try this balm, since these are practically available in Siberia by now. I got this balm from a friend, and was thrilled since the package is lovely in a cool way and the balm smells delicious. Before writing this review I decided to do some research about this balm, reading the history of Dr. Smith was a bit like reading a book missing half the pages, anyways, what I learned is that this man who was a teacher, all of a sudden was a “Dr.” owning a pharmacy, and that he loved going to miss America pageants (random facts – I‘m sorry its the worst biography I‘ve ever read). Back to the balm – is it really that great? NOO. It is fine, but no miracle to my dry lips, which remain dry after several applications. Though it feels ok pleasant on my lips, it is pretty sticky and doesn‘t really get absorbed. Also sticking your fingers into this balm is unhygienic. Doesn‘t perform any miracles on dry skin either.

  1. Somehow, it works very well on my dry lips. I guess probably because of the petrolatum base. I have heard good and bad things about the petrolatum. Some people’s skin just love it, while some’s just cannot tolerate it at all.
    Good review. Thanks for sharing. 🙂


  2. My fingers used to crack and bleed in the winter when I first moved to the east coast. My sister told me about this product and I tried it. Within days my fingers healed and haven’t bled during the winter. I didn’t believe it was a good product either (at first) until I tried it. I haven’t bought it recently but that was my experience.
