It's no secret that I love all things floral ... and especially all things rose. "A rose by any other name may smell as sweet." That phrase may work for some people, but for me? I don't think so. There's something so unbelievably, deliciously intoxicating about the scent of a blooming rose -- I've never found anything else quite like it. And by Terry Baume de Rose captures that scent perfectly.
I like my lip balms to be creamy but not waxy -- and, of course, they have to soften my lips, or what's the point? by Terry Baume de Rose does all that and more -- and it lasts for hours, so reapplication is at a minimum. (Which is nice, since at $58 it's definitely on the pricey side for a lip balm.) It even has SPF 15, so my lips are protected against harmful UVA and UVB rays while looking fantastic. And while I know some gals may frown at the idea of a pot balm, how can you go wrong with a chic frosted pot with gleaming silver top? I really think you can't.
While this balm can actually be used for both the lips and cuticles, so far I've just stuck to my lips. It leaves a gorgeous, shimmery sheen upon my pout that on its own is perfect for day, or fabulous for night when layered over a darker lip color. Not to mention its many amazing properties -- it rejuvenates, repairs, strengthens, nourishes and fights aging. This is due to a high concentration of lipid-building substances and essential rose wax. Created by the by Terry Research Laboratories, this balm really does promote an inner and outer glow.
