EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm.

By | November 25, 2010

Hi my lovelies… I’ve read a lot of hype about this lip balm on some blogs. They’re not widely available in the UK… So, as my gorgeous mum was off to America I asked her to get me any that were in stock. She picked up the LAST 4 in the drug store she went into!

Before I go into these let me just give you some background info… EOS stands for ‘Evolution of Smooth’. These little spheres are 95% organic & 100% natural. They are also:

  • Gluten-Free
  • Paraben-Free
  • Petrolatum-Free
  • Phthalate-Free
  • And also contain vitamin E, shea butter & jojoba oil.

Basically, EOS claim they are VERY organic & moisturising! They come in 5 flavours…

  • Summer Fruits
  • Lemon Drop
  • Honeysuckle Honeydew
  • Medicated Tangerine
  • Sweet Mint

In terms of packaging I think these are ADORABLE! I always know where they are in my bag because it’s such an unusual shape… I dunno about you but I don’t really carry balls around in my bag! They’ve got a soft, smooth, matte finish to their sphere. I’m a SUCKER for packaging. To get into the sphere, all you gotta do is TWIST & pucker up :)

My mum got me 2 flavours… Luckily I wanted the red one & she managed to get me 3 of them! This one’s SUMMER FRUIT. It reminds me of the peach Lypsyl’s you can get but a little more fruity. It’s a great smell!

Ever since my Bloom lip balm experience, I’ve become very SCEPTICAL about buying different lip balms. I tend to stick to what I know & like. But, because I’ve heard so many POSITIVE things about this, I had to give it a go.

The balm goes on very smoothly – I wouldn’t say it’s out of the ordinary… But the way you apply it really is, it’s the thing I look forward to the most :) The balm itself is fairly thick but doesn’t feel too heavy on my lips. Overall it moisturises my lips VERY well!

The other flavour my mum managed to get her hands on was the HONEYSUCKLE HONEYDEW – more of a melon kind of flavour, I’m not too keen on this one but will still probably use it up! LOL

I’ve been using this for about a week now & all in all, I think it’s very good as well as hygienic! It moisturises my lips & leaves them soft. Also, I don’t have to put it on very often so it has good STAYING power :)

Personally, although I do love them, I think there are a few down sides to this… There is NO SPF in this! (Apart from the Lemon flavour.) But, surely it should be in ALL of them?! Or is that just me? Also my summer fruits has gone down a quite lot but I haven’t used it THAT much… Does that mean it’s not gonna LAST me very long? Also… I wonder if the lip balm carries on under the sphere (if that makes sense?) I guess only time will tell…

Unfortunately, you can’t get these babies in UK chemists/drug stores but you can HERE. They retail at £4.75 which I think is a little STEEP. But the next time anyone I know heads off to the states… These will be on the list as they’re about $3/4 there :) Until next time my beauties!

P.S – I’ve found every time I stop using any lip balms my lips go into some sort of WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOM & get really dry… Is anyone in the same boat as me? :oops:

    These are really cool!
    And you’re not the only one that gets ‘lip balm withdrawal symptoms’- lips become like like addicted to lipbalm and when you don’t use it they go all dry and horrible so i’ve heard its best to only use it when you really need it!

      Oh poop! But I seem to always need to use it?! LOL! Maybe I should try a lip scrub? :) xx

    I was gonna buy the Lemon one yesterday (in NY at the mo), but didn’t. I didn’t wanna tap into the hype but they’re only about $3.50 out here so meh! I’ll probably go and pick one up to try it out.

    • Kaushal

      I’ve heard the lemon one is supposed to be quite good! That’s real cheap – you should totally get one :) I love the shape of it :) x

  • roshni

    i need these in my life! xx

    • Kaushal

      The summer fruits one is the best! :) x

    My lips are seriously chapped and I am a huge sucker for lip balm, like literally i’m always trying out lip balms . After reading alot of raves I decided to get the summer fruits EOS lipbalm and tbh i was kind of disappointed..I just found that it wasn’t moisturising enough and it gets used up so quickly …and for the price tag ..no thanks i would rather stick to my trusty carmex cherry :D

    • Kaushal

      I’m slightly addicted to my carmex too! Yep you’re totally right about them getting used up quickly – I wasn’t expecting that but I do find they’re moisturising until you stop using them :( If I was living in the states I’d probably buy them because they’re so different but they’re a little bit on the expensive side to buy here off that website… Well I’ve still got 3 more to use! LOL I have too many lip balms now :oops: hehe x
