You'll definitely want to add this $2 lip gloss to your next shopping list
I love scents. I am that woman who can walk down the hallways of our office and name the perfume every single woman is wearing. Maybe it’s that I spent a ridiculous amount of time at Sephora in high school smelling perfume, wishing that I could take them all home, or maybe it’s just that I associate memories with smells.
Although I know many perfumes, I don’t like them all. I actually despise a lot of them. When it comes to scents including candles, perfumes, body washes, even toners, I am very, very picky. The ones I like almost always have floral or herbal notes—lily, rosemary, lavender, gardenia, and rose, to be specific.
Rose is just so lovely. Every time I use a rose-scented product, it gives me a wonderful sense of relaxation, which is so essential to my busy, chaotic life. Unfortunately though, many rose products are so expensive. And while I would just love to spend all of my money on them, the smart woman inside of my head says that’s probably not a good idea. So, when I found this incredibly tiny tube of Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips (for soft, pink lips), I fell in love. Not only is it less than $2, but it’s also perfectly portable and incredibly adorable—important.
It fits anywhere, therefore it goes with me everywhere. I love the blissful rosy smell it gives off and the hint of pink tint. Plus, it provides the ample amount of moistness to my lips. The best part though? Just a dab does the job, so this tiny little jar of happiness lasts for more than a year. It’s the little things in life, right?
