I’m gonna’ jump right in today: yippee skippee, it’s chapstick weather! Shocker I’m so excited about this, huh?
Moms and more, that box in front of my family headquarters next week from C.O. Bigelow? It’s mine. And it’s filled with $100 worth of Rose Salve (that’s more or less 18 tins, for those of you wondering). Yep, I can’t live without this stuff. You’ll find it in my desk, in my gym bag, in any and all of my purses, in coat pockets, in my daughters’ backpacks, the junk drawer in the kitchen, the car…did I mention that I can’t live without this stuff? With apologies to all of the Chapstick, Carmex and Blistex devotees out there, I’m convinced C.O. Bigelow’s Rose Salve is the only thing that truly heals my chapped lips, and an added bonus – it functions beautifully as a lip gloss.
Mind you, I’m not knocking the the other C.O. Bieglow products. As previously disclosed, I do relish a good scented candle, and the assortment of candles is promising for all those with similar olfactory inclinations. C.O. Bigelow features many of the Diptyque scents, which are favorites of mine. My sensory advice? Treat yourself to the Pomander during the cold winter months and pick up Tuberose for the Spring.
I also think the packaging on their soaps is pretty, or in some cases quirky, and I think these might make great hostess gifts – tied up with a grosgrain ribbon of course, and complete with a handwritten note on matching stationery.
With laughter (and Rose Salve) on the lips – smack!
