* Vaseline Lip Therapy *

The lip therapy range from Vaseline is a really basic concept. Little tins of petroleum jelly which are aimed at looking after your lips. (Plus any other dry bits you might want to grease up occasionally!) Our lips regularly become dry and chapped because they don't create their own moisture. So Vaseline lip therapy is there to give us a little helping hand.
Most people are aware of the original lip therapy 20g tin. A simple yet original blue and white round tub which holds the basic petroleum jelly. It has always been a stable in my bag and I use it for everything! Mainly for my lips but also to keep my eyebrows neat and tidy, for dry hands and even when I have a cold I put a little on my nose to stop it drying out! It really is an all round little gem and so small that it fits I any bag. So when I saw this new Lip therapy product of course I had to try it!

* Rosy Lips *

The Rosy Lips version of lip therapy seems to be a pretty good idea. The principles are the same as the original version except it contains rose and almond oil. The tub it a light rose pink colour and the actual petroleum jelly on the inside is a deep rose pink colour. It is very pretty and definitely grabs the female attention award.
Priced at £1.50 it is a bit more expensive then the rest of the range which is usually under £1. But I guess you are paying for the 'prettiness and femininity'. This Vaseline lip therapy also has a light fruity/rose scent to it. It is hard to explain but the smell is very nice and not overbearing at all and it doesn't linger on the lips. More of a burst when you open the lid. I bought this from Sainsbury's but have also seen it in Boots and Superdrug's and other supermarkets so it really is everywhere at the moment, especially at shop counters as it's a quick 'ooohhh and I'll have that' sort of product.

* What is it like to use? *

I know that my lips need a lot of looking after and whether I use a gloss or a conditioner, I have to have something on my lips. When I first tried this I noticed that it was a lot greasier then the normal petroleum jelly and this made it a little messy to put on. You really do need just a small amount as otherwise you look a bit like a clown. because of the extra oil to it, I don't have to apply as much. This will make the tub last longer! The lip balm has a light pinkish tint to it and if you miss your lips you will look like you ate doughnut full of jam! This is a bit frustrating as I don't always have a mirror on me and I would prefer it if the balm was a bit firmer. But I will just have to take a bit more care in my application. Because the lip therapy is also a deep pink colour, the residue you have left on your finger has to be wiped away with a tissue. This is also a bit inconvenient as if I use normal petroleum jelly I can just rub it into my hands.

The benefit of using this is ultimately that it does help to add moisture and condition your lips. It definitely works in that sense. I think because it is slightly greasy it actually stayed on my lips a lot longer. After a couple of hours my lips were still soft and I didn't need to reapply. However, I like my lips to look quite glossy and although this had colour there was none of the usually shine that the normal lip therapy gave me.

* Finally... *

For a lip tint / balm this is a bargain at £1.49. It conditions the lips, has a gorgeous light smell and a soft rosy tint. It is a bit greasy and a bit messy but that the sacrifice you make. Personally I prefer the original Lip therapy with the plain petroleum jelly as it caters for more and is cheaper, as well as giving me a bit more shine. This really is just a bit of an impulse buy and if I can be a bit more careful with the application it will save me time and money. Instead of using a lip conditioner and a lip tint, I can just use this!

Thanks for reading. x

Brilliant title! Well reviewed, I'm faithful to the plain one though because I use it as an eye make-up remover too so can't use a scent x

I buy them in these little tins but haven't tried this one
