Milk Makeup Hero Review

Milk Makeup Hero Salve1

Milk Makeup Hero Salve ($12) is a new healing salve that promises a rich, hydrating formula which can be used anywhere. I loved the idea of multitasking products like this but my germ-a-phobe good nature also has this skeeve-y moment where I’m like, “Ok, ew, I don’t think I want to dip a finger in and use it on my mouth and proceed to use it on my body too!”

You know what I mean or am I alone out there?

No bigger though, I could always just buy 2 right? That’s a solution!

Or not because Milk Makeup Hero Salve is not really particularly special.

So I’m a big fan girl of Rosebud Salve as you already know and Milk Makeup Hero Salve had me singing about how All I Need is a Hero because I was thinking, well, wow, this is a healing salve with a serious dose of hydration.

This has some really nice ingredients like but for the price, $20 bucks for 0.84 or $12 for 0.28 oz, well, I think you might be able to do better.

It comes in some rather basic yet terribly chic white packaging with a translucent lid. Minimalists will love the rather simple yet slick packaging. It’s kinda the Apple iPhone of the makeup world. Very simple yet really rather cool looking. They also have some funky outer packaging as this comes in a silver zip seal baggie and inside is not only the salve but some stickers. I dunno if need stickers with my lip balm but hey, ok, extras are cool!

So one tube does it all Face, body, lips, anywhere you need “serious hydration” according to the brand. It contains a mix of moisturizing oils, primarily vegetable oil, as well as shea butter.

It’s actually not really a salve-like formula at first as it proves quite dense. You kinda got dig a finger in there and break through the initial density to get to the good stuff so to speak. It leaves lips with a nice slick layer of product that isn’t tacky, sticky, or greasy with a hint of shine. It does have a very subtle lavender fragrance and flavor. I admit it felt very soothing and hydrating on my lips. I didn’t feel like it worked all that great on my body though. I think Shea Butter Vaseline probably does a better job on my dry elbows and knees than this does. You can, of course, multitask with it though as if you wanna take your brows with it you can def do that or even add a little on drier areas of your face maybe down the sides of your nose when it is dry from being sick.

It’s a fun product but it doesn’t do anything that a tin of Rosebud Salve or even Vaseline would do and at a cheaper price tag mind you. I’ll def use up this pot on my cracked, dry lips but I likely won’t repurchase it.

Have you tried it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m with you Muse, I don’t like dipping my fingers in there, then using it all over my body, including lips, and at $12 each, I can’t afford to buy a separate jar for each body part LOL
