For the past couple of years, the Vaseline ‘Rosy Lips’ Lip Therapy has been something of a myth as it was first sold exclusively in the U.K. On countless blogs and beauty sites product junkies swore by the tiny jar and its lip softening capabilities, but very few could get their hands on it overseas. So, imagine my surprise when a couple of weeks ago I was browsing the aisles of my favorite drugstore and happened upon the holy grail of lip balms nestled between spray-on lotion and body oil. I have always been a fan of Vaseline—it’s cost effective and doubles as the perfect gloss/lip primer—and with the deep pink tint and refreshing herbal scent this feels like a more grown-up version of the classic. Rose infused beauty products are all the rage right now and at just $1.99 this multi-tasking product is certainly a steal. Although it is not available online, I found this budget beauty pick at my local Target. Head there and pick one up soon before they are all gone!
