Hi! So about 2 weeks ago I won a giveaway from ci Phanie and one of the prizes is this Acel's all time wishlist (but I have no idea why she hasn't buy it yet until now) which is this Rosebud Minted Rose Lip Balm! Obviously it will belong to her from now BUT before she used it all up I manage to try it for several times to make this short review :D
The packaging itself is quite attractive IMO, dominated with pink color on the body and green for the cap (which I think represent the "mint" ahaha) not to mention I love the Rosebud logo on the middle and the flowery decoration.
To be honest I've never heard this brand before but Acel said it's pretty well-known already. I don't think we can find it here in Indonesia but if you want to buy this product, Luxola has it ^^
It has the twist-off cap type and to get the product out you just need to squeeze it~ The lip balm itself come with a gel-ish type with pink color.
Once you applied this on your lips, you'll definitely feel the mint sensation that last for about 15 minutes. I tried to lick and taste it but it doesn't has any taste at all :p However your tongue will also feel the mint-y sensation lol XD

The moisturizing effect is quite good compared to my previous Maybelline Baby Lips. It does help to reduce lines on my dry lips and will last for about 4-5 hours :D It also doesn't feel greasy at all and give a nice "glowing" effect without being too much~
(+) Long moisturizing effect
