G.F. Smith's original Rosebud Salve has been a cult beauty favorite for over a century for use on everything from lips to cuticles to cracked heels. We tried one of the latest incarnations, Minted Rose Balm, ($7) and will be surprised if this formula doesn't become just as, if not more, popular than the original. The addition of lightly zingy peppermint oil to the original formula of skin-soothing rose oil helps calm irritated, dry skin and leaves a light rosy gloss on lips. The makers also tout it as - and get ready, this is a long list - a brow gel, eyeshadow base, highlighter, frizz tamer, and helps relieve hemorrhoids, diaper rash, psoriasis, sunburn, alopecia, and dry scalp. For 7 bucks a tin, that's a definite bargain!
