Vaseline Rose Lip Therapy with SPF 15 and Petroleum Jelly - Review

In winter, nothing is as essential as a good lip balm and in this post, I'll share with you my current favorite - Vaseline Lip Therapy Rose Lip Balm with SPF 15. “Vaseline lip therapy SPF15 not only moisturises and soothes lips but also provides effective protection from the harsh effects of the sun.”

Vaseline Rose Lip Therapy with SPF 15 and Petroleum Jelly

The lip therapy balms come in four variants - original, aloe vera, rose and cocoa butter. I have used the cocoa butter one sometime back and it was not a favorite. Don't think it had SPF and the formula might have improved now but at that time, I found the texture dry and other than the chocolatey smell, it didn't really do much. I am loving the Rose balm though. It smells faintly of roses and the texture is very light and moisturising. This is what Vaseline says about the Rose lip therapy balm

"Vaseline Lip Therapy will give your lips a gorgeous soft rosy glow along with moisturisation with sweet almond and rose oils.

Key ingredients and Benefits:

It contains Almond and rose oil to keep lips soft and smooth. Vitamin E for its antioxidant properties and Petroleum Jelly that keeps moisture locked in. SPF 15 to protect your lips against harmful UVA & UVB rays"

The packaging of the balm is very simple. The tube is reddish pink in color and the balm inside is a light rose. It smells faintly of roses but the smell does not last for more than a few seconds. The balm gives a slight hint of light pink color to the lips. If you have pigmented lips like I do, you can hardly make out the color though. 

In winter, most lip balms stiffen up and become dry but this does not. Once you apply, it just glides on and your lips are drenched in moisture. I do not see any rosy glow but it gives a nice sheen to the lips so you can also use it on top of a lipstick in place of gloss. I love the texture of the lip balm and the fact that it does moisturise my lips but the only con is that the balm does not last for too long. I have to reapply after a couple of hours to maintain the softness.

Overall, this is a good lip balm. Its not waxy or sticky and will be very good for those with extra dry lips. SPF is a great addition and I'm sure you will love the texture and the feel of the balm on your lips. Just have to keep reapplying it after every few hours. Vaseline Rose Lip Therapy with SPF 15 and Petroleum Jelly is priced at Rs 109 for 4g.
