Budget Maker and Budget Breaker No.3
Don't get me wrong the Baume De Rose by Terry is an amazing product. I had the pleasure of receiving it in a Birchbox and I used it until I was basically scraping the packaging, but the price isn't worth it to me. The only additional benefit Baume De Rose has is an SPF of 15.
Smith's Rosebud Salve is a classic and in the tube it has the same constancy as the Baume De Rose. It is a little thicker than the traditional tin and way more hygienic Smith's doesn't just sit on the surface of your lips, like Baume de Rose is absorbs in to provide deep hydration for your lips. The light rose fragrance is soothing and not at all overpowering. Smith's is free of Parabens, Sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes which is important for a product you are wearing on your lips. With both Smith's and Baume De Rose you can massage the balm into your cuticles for an instant manicure refresher. Additional Smith's Rosebud Salve can soothe the sting of minor burns, help heal cuts (true!), and minimize diaper rash.
