Dry elbows, knees, or hands? This multipurpose balm works there too!

Birchbox Breakdown

We have a love-hate relationship with winter. We love the cozy sweaters and mugs of hot cocoa, but hate how the cold weather leaves our lips dry, cracked, and chapped. This soothing balm, a tried-and-true favorite dating back to the early days of renowned apothecary C.O. Bigelow (they’ve been around since 1838!), is just the fix we need. Toss it in your bag along with an extra pair of mittens and get out there and enjoy the season. Your lips will thank you.

How it Works

Rose extract nourishes and hydrates lips and skin for a smoother, softer appearance, and its anti-inflammatory properties soothe and heal irritation. C.O. Bigelow products are proudly made in the USA and are never tested on animals.

How to Use

Apply liberally to lips throughout the day.

Petrolatum, Lanolin Oil, Squalene, Flavor (Aroma), Octyldodecanol, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Bisabolol, Jojoba Esters, Red 30 Lake (CI73360)

My favorite lip and everything balm

I love to use this lip balm on my lips when I'm wearing my "no makeup"makeup look, makes my lips super soft and healthy. I also love applying this on my nails cuticles before making my mani, it's great for softening my hard cuticles. Plus it last a whole year or more for me!

Every woman should have this balm. I use it everyday on my cuticles, lips, and dry skin. I love the scent and the feel. It gives my lips the perfect hint of color and shine.

Rose Gold

The title says it all rose gold. Not only good for lips but chapped hands and faces too. Outside or washing hands a lot in the winter this is a must.

This is wonderful. Feels great on my lips and has a soft rose scent. Not overpowering. It says it can be used elsewhere but I haven't tried yet. All around nice lip ointment

Amazing [everything] balm!

I used to work for a retail store that sells C.O. Bigelow, and let me tell you, out the million things we sold for dry skin/lips, this is my favorite. Only downside is the application because I have long nails AND I'm a germ freak but this balm is so good I can get over it every time. It tastes good, feels amazing on rough spots anywhere on the body and my boyfriend even caves and uses it on his dry elbows every once in a while. I can't say enough good things about it!

Rose Salve is great!
Purchased

Tried lots of salves and balms, this is my favorite so far. I love the scent, it's light and not too strong, but smells nicely floral and sweet. It also doesn't get too sticky. I will say, though, don't put too much or it'll leave a film on your lips. This is great for dry skin on cuticles, arms, hands, any dry part really. I've used it for my hands before when my lotion hasn't even worked. Definitely would buy again, this is one of my must haves now!

Great for lips and chapped hands
Purchased

This is a silky, non-sticky lip moisturizer in a great, purse-friendly package. I use my rose salve lip balm every day, and it feels awesome on my lips while deeply moisturizing. I also use it on my hands and cuticles for a quick, absorbent moisturizer. It's great for wind-chapped skin. The tin lasts a long time, too. This is great "beauty basic" to have on hand all the time.
