New Beauty Find! C.O. Bigelow Lavender Salve


I’m part of a Bunco group. We meet monthly and play this mindless dice game while socializing, drinking sangria and eating delicious treats. Everyone walks away with a prize (some bigger than others). At our June Bunco game I won this C.O. Bigelow Lavender Salve. I have heard of the C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve before from Bath & Body Works and it competes with my beloved Rosebud Salve.  I was excited that I won this but not expecting to love it since I considered this brand a knock-off of the Rosebud line.


One swipe of this balm on my lips and I was in love!  It has an identical texture to the Rosebud Salves and the tin is the exact same shape and size.  It has a soothing, wonderful lavender aroma with no sweet flavor.  It leaves lips ultra hydrated and shiny, so it doubles as a gloss.  It’s completely clear on the lips, even though it’s a gorgeous purple shade in the tin.  Like the Rosebud balms this is a multi-purpose product that’s great for cuticles, dry spots, etc.  It’s only $5.50 at Bath & Body Works, although it seems that it’s only available in the store.  I don’t see the lavender salve on their website, but Amazon carries it.

Have you tried the C.O. Bigelow Salves?
