Review | Vaseline Lip Therapy ‘Rosy Lips’


Well, vacation time is over and it’s back to work for Dollface. Everyone say, "aaawww!"

Luckily, I have lots of shiny new beauty products to keep me occupied now I’m home. Let’s just say Sephora has seen a lot of me recently. And even more of my credit card, sadly. Today, though, I want to show you my newest acquisition, which is something I didn’t buy in Sephora. In fact, it’s something that arrived in the mail only this morning, making me stop what I was doing (Drinking coffee and twittering) to go, "Ooh, lookit this!"

"This", of course, is Vaseline’s new ‘Rosy Lips’ petroleum jelly, which is basically Vaseline’s classic Lip Therapy tin, with one important difference: it makes your lips "rosy". Now, who doesn’t want rosy lips, I ask you? Raise your hand if you don’t want rosy lips. See? No one.

I’m a fan of Vaseline Lip Therapy anyway, and always have a tin in my beauty box. I’ve been using the "original" formula for years now, but I love this one even more. The jelly itself is scented with rose and almond oils (although only very subtly) and the tint is perfect for creating that "English rose" look. It gives your lips a glossy wash of natural looking rosy colour, which I love, and it can also be used to give subtle colour/glow to your eyelids and cheekbones. I’ve mentioned before that I will sometimes use Benetint Lip Balm on my cheeks as well as my lips as a quick "pick me up" if I’m out and about, and this works in the same way. It’s shinier than the Benefit product, but not too greasy, and good for that "dewy" look, to go with the rosy cheeks. It’s also cheaper – just £1.49 for a tin.

I can tell this is going to be coming everywhere with me from now on. If you want to buy some for yourself, you’re going to have to wait until next month, when it’ll be available from all of the usual sources – Boots, Superdrug, etc.

    Sounds nice. Do you know how it compares to Rosebud Salve?

    Hi Tink! I haven’t actually tried Rosebud Salve, so can’t compare it – will look out for it, though!
