The cult favourite — finally available in Australia!

Smith’s Rosebud Salve has been loved by many since its humble beginnings back in 1895. The business began when families asked Dr George F. Smith to create a salve for soothing minor skin irritations. Dr Smith formulated a product that he originally called 'Balsam of Rosebuds', a name that paid homage to the sweetly scented rose oils that the local women loved to wear.

Soon, the popularity of Smith’s Rosebud Salve grew to the point where Dr Smith began to advertise his product in the local tabloids. Within a few years, Dr Smith was managing one of the most unusual mail-order businesses and selling four brands door-to-door through his sales agents. Fast-forward to the present day, and Rosebud products are more popular than ever, with the company being owned and run by Smith's descendants.

Smith’s Rosebud products are available in a variety of different formulas. Both the classic salve and the lip balms are available in signature tins and convenient 0.5-oz. tubes. Soften your lips with the sweet berry flavour of Brambleberry Rose or choose Mocha Rose with Vanilla for a pleasant mocha taste. These balms contain fragrant essential oils and botanicals to help keep lips soft and protected. The signature salve also comes in a variety of formulas.

Holy grail lip balm

Of the countless lip balms/ointments/treatments I have tried, this is by far the BEST one I have found. I used to always have some kind of flaking on my bottom lip every morning, no matter what I slathered my lips in overnight (despite lots of water and a healthy diet). With this balm, I no longer have this issue! I haven't had ANY chapping or dryness on my lips at all since using this product, even through a cold and windy winter.
The silky texture instantly smooths my lips on application and isn't sticky or heavy like other balms (i.e. Lanolips). It also sits nicely on top of liner/lipstick and gives a nice sheen to the lips.
As a bonus: the vintage inspired packaging is adorable, and the strawberry fragrance is very nice!
I can't recommend this enough! You will not be disappointed.
