*REVIEW* Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve

When I saw what was free with this month's Glamour magazine, having such a complex about the dark circles under my eyes I instinctively picked up a copy with Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream and thought nothing more of it. After looking at what I could of had, I thought I'd possibly invest in the Lip Salve as I have been getting awfully chapped lips recently and my trusty Vaseline Rosy Lips has just not been doing the job, I thought it couldn't hurt to try it for £2!!!

First off, I LOVE the packaging. I think it's simple, yet elegant and the perfect size to be able to carry around with you anywhere be it day or night. I also loved the fact that 100% of the ingredients were natural, so nothing chemical or man made was getting to me, which sometimes makes my skin/lips even worse.

When I first opened the lid, I wasn't a fan of the smell at all. It smelt a bit too 'natural' and 'pot pourri'ish.. Whereas personally I like a bit of a fruity smell to my lip products. When I applied it, it felt a bit greasy on my lips, which isn't great and all I could focus on was the smell as I hated it. Yes, it did make my lips softer and less dry, however the smell has completely put me off.

I would rate it 8/10 for the actual product and its use.
I would rate it 1/10 for smell though.

Not something I would purchase full price, which is sad as I absolutely loved the eye cream!!!


  1. I don't like the smell either. :(

  2. I haven't tried this but I'm not a fan of greasy or highly scented lip salves :/
    What is the eye cream like?

    1. I've only used it twice but will be doing a review on it :) xxx
