Review: Philosophy Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm

Philosophy Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm

I have long been a devotee of Smith's Rosebud Salve, it is often the last thing to touch my lips at night, since I'm a bit of a night owl.  It's always done a fine job of keeping my lips soft and my cuticles well groomed.  There is something charming about the fact that it has been around for well over 100 years, no doubt doing the same for countless women, the world over.

It was one of those products that I would never consciously  seek to replace, having attaining Holy Grail status long ago.

I often think I need horse blinders when I check out at Sephora, to keep me from doing any further damage than what's already in my bulging basket. I can't say I blame the marketing guru's at Sephora, really.  It is their job to lead us to temptation.  No better place to display impulse purchases, than the oft crowded check out queue, which they line with miniatures, gift sets and products to be had for under $20.

Truth be told, that's how I discovered Smith's Rosebud Salve in the first place...

Alas, I spied Philosophy's Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm on lone and it was all I could do to keep from nibbling it...It's adorably packaged and smells delicious. I thought it a bit pricey, but suspected it would last a long time.


Happily, I love it.  It feels creamy, literally melting on your lips, leaving them silky, plump and hydrated. It also imparts a pretty pearly sheen, that natural types might be happy wearing on bare lips.

Day or night, it creates lovely, kissable lips.  What could be sweeter than that???



  1. Do you know anyplace that's still selling this, since it's no longer holiday season. I love it, and I've resorted to scooping the leftovers out of the base.

  2. Hi Heather,
    I feel your pain! I loved it so much, I went back to scoop up a couple for friends. GONE! I did my usual search on EBay and Amazon and came up empty handed. I never would have written about it if I knew it was a limited edition item. Ill write back if I find a stash on a website and let you know.
