I’ve found the world’s most perfect lip gloss, and it costs less than your morning latte. Read the review of Vaseline lip therapy rosy lips.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m crazy picky about the products that I put on my lips. I don’t wear anything that tastes weird (because you always end up eating a least a little bit of your lip balm), and if a product is overly goopy or sticky, I’ll toss it. I also don’t mess around with anything that is too drying or smudges easily. When I do manage to find a product that I really love, it’s a big deal for me. And when that product is less than two bucks? Well, then I have no choice but to wax poetic about it on the Internet for all to read.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to my latest beauty obsession, Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips.
Yup, you read that right–this article is about the same stuff that your mom probably put on your butt when you were a baby with diaper rash. Rosy Lips is Vaseline, but so much better. Like, book-a-plane-ticket-to-Florida-because-they-don’t-sell-Rosy-Lips-in-your-country better.
I’m exaggerating, of course, although it is true that the first thing I did upon arriving in Florida for vacation last month was rush out to Walgreens to track down the elusive product. You see, I’d first learned about Rosy Lips way back in November when my fellow Blufashion writer Susan did a little investigative journalism to uncover the best drugstore lip balm. I was surprised to see Rosy Lips–a tinted and scented Vaseline–on her list because I had no idea that such a product existed. Needing answers, I reached out to the company on Twitter and was pretty darn disappointed by their response:
So when I found the tiny tubs of happiness in an aisle of a Floridian Walgreens, I was thrilled. Making matters even better, Rosy Lips costs $1.79. I thanked the gods for my good fortune and then grabbed six packages of Rosy Lips because when in America, do as the Americans do: go big or go home.
I’m happy to report that the trouble it took to acquire the Rosy Lips lip balm was entirely worth it. Seriously. This stuff is that good. I’ll start with the scent: it’s lovely. It’s super subtle, and light and just like, what you’d imagine a stroll through a sparsely populated rose garden would smell like–you get just a hint of the flower. I love it.
The texture itself is just like regular old Vaseline, which is a wonderful thing as far as I’m concerned. I know some people think it’s too thick or goopy, but hello, nothing moisturizes or protects better than Vaseline. Try spreading Rosy Lips across your dry knuckles or elbows before bed, and I promise you’ll wake up to smooth and moisturized skin.
And finally, what I love most about Rosy Lips is its perfect pink tint. The color is so subtle that it makes your lips look like they’re naturally the color of rosebuds, which is positively thrilling.
The TL;DR version of this post is this: I love you, Vaseline Rosy Lips. Don’t ever change.
(Except for your availability in Canada. Change that).
