Review: EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit

For those of you who aren't familiar with those cute bright egg-shaped lip balms that everyone's been raving, I'm going to introduce you to my new favourite lip product, the EOS (Evolution of Smooth) Lip Sphere. So far I've purchased two scents, Summer Fruit and SPF15 Lemon Drop but only used the first one. I have the driest lips and usually refrain from wearing lipstick or gloss because they're hair magnets and I end up eating them more than wearing them. This balm is actually something that I want to compulsively put on my lips.

5 flavours available: Summer Fruit, Lemon Drop SPF15, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Medicated Tangerine, Sweet Mint
 
Price: $2.79 at Walgreens for 0.25 oz (7g)

Ingredients
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax (Cire D’abeille)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Natural Flavor, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extract*, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract*, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Extract*, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract*, Linalool1.  
1Component of Natural Flavor. *Organic.

What the product claims to do (from the EOS site):
* Long-lasting moisture
* Shea butter & vitamin E
* Smoothes on clear
* New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
* Twist-off top
* Gluten-free
* Paraben-free
* Petrolatum-free
* Phthalate-free

"eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth." USDA Organic, not tested on animals.

Packaging: Very cute, bright colours. It doesn't roll around because of its flat surfaces. Clean and simple.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Verdict: This is a great investment lip balm and will last you a long time. I know that I would definitely collect all 5 flavours if I can find them. So much more effective and worth it than Burt's Bees. It actually melts all my cracked lip mess and makes them soft, lasting throughout sipping water and not needing tons of reapplication. I have these EOS lip balms to thank for softer lips.

Pros
- non sticky, not thick layers
- actually softens the lips
- happy fruit scent that I can't stop sniffing
- sweet taste
- a lot of product
- won't pop off or get stuck towards the bottom of the tube
- flat parts on surface prevent rolling away

Cons
- too bulky to fit into pocket
- maybe a tint of colour would be nice
- price?

Effectiveness
- Moisturizing 5/5 ♥♥♥♥♥
- Smooth Application: 5/5 ♥♥♥♥♥
- Long-lasting: 4/5 ♥♥♥
- Texture: 5/5 ♥♥♥♥♥
Packaging: 5/5 ♥♥♥♥♥
Price: 4/5 ♥♥♥♥
Would I buy it again? Yes!

I was not paid in any way for this review; these are my opinions after use. This product was purchased with my own money. Results may vary from person to person.

Hi. Wow, I've been seeing reviews on this everywhere. I guess it has become popular suddenly. The containers are very cute, so I can see why :-)

OMGGGGGGGG!!!! I LOVE THEM, it's so cute looking. Wow, does that mean I'm really outdated since I didn't even know.

Now to wait for them to reach Malaysia.. probably in another 6 months or a year or so...

Have you tried the Burts Bees with Pomegranate Oil (the one with a pink tint)? That's the one I'm using right now and I wonder if this is better than that. Regular Burts Bees doesn't work on me at all, I can't even apply it to my lips because it's so waxy and my lips are so dry.
