Cult fans have long traveled to the UK to stash up on the little tins of Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips, swearing by its effectiveness at soothing dry chapped skin (lips and elsewhere), light rosy fragrance, and pretty pink sheen. Now, just in time for winter (we all know January and February conditions are the worst), Rosy Lips has made its stateside debut so the rest of us can also experience this little miracle. The simple formulation consists of 100% triple-filtered petroleum jelly with added berry color and rose vanilla scent and feels a bit thicker and softer than its British counterpart. Each tubs retails for $1.99–I have already acquired multiple, one for each winter coat pocket. A limited edition collector’s version is entirely encrusted in Swarovski crystals and can be found for $45 at Fred Segal and Shop Kiton. Though I had originally deemed the bedazzled tub too pretty to use, one swipe of the content inside quickly changed my mind.
