Smith’s Rosebud Medley of Lip Balms (In a Tube)

Smiths Salve

I happen to be a traditionalist.

My first tin of Smith’s Rosebud Salve came into my possession nearly a decade ago and I’ve dubbed it the Solution to Life, the Universe, and Everything ever since that faithful day.

I’m pretty anal so my favorite salve in a tin form kicked in my OCD good nature and I was all worried about the germ and bacteria factor. Ew! Thankfully a year or two ago Smith’s blessed us with a tube version of their cult favorite balm. I loved it but like I said I’m a traditionalist and actually prefer the tin over the tube….

However, the good news is now Smiths’ has created a trio of their popular salves in a tube form and also indivdually…so you aren’t limited to the Rosebud Salve version anymore you can choose from other Smith’s Salves in this new packaging!

Cheap Toner: C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner Review

It’s obvious I’ve been hauling C.O. Bigelow at BBW lately right? My latest discovery is from the brand new C.O. Bigelow Face Collection. The line includes a slew of interesting bits which I’ll tell you all about soon but today I’ll be concentrating on the new C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner.

C.O.+Bigelow+Vitamin+Boost+Toner+3

Can you say love?

Click it to hear the rave!

With a $12 price tag and a larger size bottle than my normal Shu Uemura DepSea Water Facial Mist I can so get on board the cheap train to enjoy myself a bottle of C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner. Likey!

With promises to perk up my tired, dull looking skin and replenish it with nutrients I imagine this could get the typical skin care junkie excited. It’s formulated with a Healthy Skin Complex, a blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to keep my skin looking healthy, strong, and youthful supposedly. That’s a whole lot of promise but the real deal is that it’s cheap and it performs pretty great at toning my skin, refreshing it, and making it ready for my facial moisturizer and really that’s about all I need. Now if by chance it also gives me a youthful appearance and is packing my skin full of healthy goodness I won’t complain but I promise I’m an easy going sort that will be just as happy if it simply tones my face, which in fact it does.

It’s 6.3oz in size and $12 bucks ummm hello cheap! My typical bottle of Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist in Mint is 5oz in size and $24. See? Cheap is good. It feels the same on my skin as Shu’s, it does the same thing in making my skin moist and dewy, and it even has a better nozzle for a finer spray of mist than my Shu. I’m feeling that happy glow of saving myself $12 bucks here people. The mist is subtly scented with a crisp, floral, slightly fruity smell. It’s quite difficult to describe the scent but it’s almost like a very green kiwi.

C.O.+Bigelow+Vitamin+Boost+Toner+4

C.O.+Bigelow+Vitamin+Boost+Toner+1

C.O.+Bigelow+Vitamin+Boost+Toner+2


Fact of the matter is C.O. Bigelow Vitamin Boost Toner is cheap, refreshing, and gives my skin a nice wake up call all while keeping it fresh, dewy, and easing the way for my moisturizer.

If you’re not willing to dish $24 or more dollars on toner I’d say check it out. It’s Muse Approved for purchase and well worth your dollar. It’s available now from Bath and Body Works and the kicker is all of C.O. Bigelow products are buy two get two free right now so hurry on over and snag yourself some.
