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:
- 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?
