First, some brand trivia: C.O. Bigelow’s flagship has been a West Village staple for almost 170 years, making it the country’s oldest apothecary. Some of its famous customers include Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
They have some long-standing quality items, and I’d say this gloss is just one of their standout products. Their Mentha Lip Shine contains 2% peppermint oil so it has a cool feeling and smells great. I love the Pink Mint (pictured here) which I stole from my friend’s makeup bag yesterday. It has a really pretty subtle pink shine, and all their glosses are fragrance free, with most containing 100% natural mint flavor. The most incredible thing was that it worked wonders on moisturizing my chapped lips (an ongoing complaint of mine that a lot of glosses seem to make worse rather than rectify).
These normally retail for $7.50, but go to Bath & Body Works’ site NOW, because they are not only carrying their complete line (including other flavors like Cinnamint and Soda Fountain), but more importantly, they are on sale there right now for $5 each! Who says I don’t look out for you?
