Perfumeria Gal Madrid

Vaselina Fraganced Balm
by Perfumeria Gal

Perfumeria Gal lip balms are on my favorites list!

Thanks to actress, Catherine Zeta Jones I discovered Perfumeria Gal lip balms. Years ago, I read in In Style magazine that she loves these lip balms from Spain. The pretty Art Nouveau tins really caught my eye. I finally found these adorable tins while shopping in a boutique in the San Francisco Bay Area. They have been on my favorites list ever since!

The fragranced balm is a petroleum (vaseline) mix with an SPF 4 and it even says vaselina on the tin. This is not just your ordinary vaseline though! I think it's the parafin that makes the difference in how nicely it feels and glides on...or maybe it's the delicious fragrance that makes them so special. Either way it's a wonderful European product!

My favorite fragrances are Violette and Red Currant. It also comes in Apple, Orange, Strawberry, Peach and Vanilla.

If you ever spot these adorable tins grab a few because they are rather hard to find. I can't go a day or night without using mine. I love putting it over lipstick as a gloss and I almost always put some on before I go to bed at night.

Let me know which Perfumeria Gal fragrance is your favorite!

Lisette - this is my first visit to your blog. Tres interessant! I love these too! I have Peche (peach) and Grosella (Red Currant). I originally bought one of these (I think at a shop in Olympia, Washington of all places!) because I loved the tin. What a surprise it was to discover that the gloss inside was just as great! I use mine every day and I'm happy to hear that you're a fan too.

Shannon, Merci for you nice comment! Not many people know about these wonderful lip balms inside the pretty tins! You must try the Violeta! They are so hard to find, I think I am going to sell them in my Ebay store soon.

When I visited Spain I found a shop which sells this. I bought one because attracted to its antique vintage looking tins.
I gave it a try on "Vanilla". Oh my God, I fell in love right away. The smell is sooo delicious, the texture is amazing it glides smoothly on my lips.
Definitely might repurchase. Can't live without it ever since.

Dear Lisette (what a pretty name!)

I am currently living in France and I ran into your blog when I was trying to find a place where I can buy these amazing lip tins. Do you happen to know if there's a shop which sells them in Paris?

Thank you so much in advance...
