BEAUTY FILE:: EOS LIP BALM REVIEW

 

When I first saw these pastel balls at CVS, they piqued my interest. You know we’re all pastel-crazed this Spring so anything in mint or lavender is pretty much a gimme. At $3.79, I bought one. Now, what are they? EOS, or the Evolution of Smooth, is 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free lip balm. I don’t always look for organic products but I figure something that I put on my mouth should probably be safe. As for the packaging, I can’t fault it! It took me a couple tries to figure out that the tops screw off (embarrassing? maybe) but once you get that down it’s a lot of fun to apply lip balm in a new way! It’s like having a brand new toy and wanting to play with it all the time. Sure, it’s a little gimmicky, but anything that will convince me to hydrate my lips more often is a great thing. If you’re not into the ball, it also comes in a stick. So far, my lips are smooth and soft, success! Prior to this I was a Burt’s Bees addict, but I actually think my lips are smoother now than ever before (that could be because I’ve been using it so often). I found mine at CVS but you can get them on the EOS website as well. I chose the flavor Summer Fruit, which is delish, but I’m reeeally wanting to try the lemon drop and the sweet mint!

I’m trying to enforce a rule, I can’t buy a new one until I finish my first one. Just one more reason to use it all the time!

  1. They´re great. However the price in Denmark is quite different. More in the line of $15 or 16 dollars. I hate that because they are some of the best lipbalms around and you don´t have to put your finger in the pot to apply.

  2. Gosh, i’ve been hearing quite some bloggers raving about this EOS lip balm! I’ve seen it over here in Hong Kong a few years ago but i think it’s about time i look into it! And i didn’t know they do them in sticks too!

    I just had to laugh when you said cant buy a new one until you finish the first one because i got that problem too! I’ve got like 4 lip balms right now! lol but these EOS beauties are hard to resist;)

    great beauty post, hope to see more of them, Cristina!!!
