Things that make me smile come in cute spheres. :3 REVIEW: EOS LIP BALM

I have tried countless lip balms that have never worked for me. My long list include the following:


- Burt's Bees Lip Balm
- C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine
- Rosebud Perfume So. Rosebud Salve
- Khiel's Lip balm & Gloss
- Chapstick
- Mentholatum Balm


Although many people swore by the said lip balms, all have miserably never kept my lips moisturized and I ended up with dry chapped lips. :(


I do smoke so I try to take care of my lips as much as I can. 


Last year, I have read and seen many people rave about EOS lip balms. They come in the cutest egg like shaped packaging. Of course I knew I had to try it too...! Unfortunately, the said balms were only available in the U.S. so I kept looking for an online seller who had the said balms. I am bad at waiting for stuff I get online. I'm just the type of person who would rather buy something that can be shipped to me within the week or the next day if possible.




Luckily Get Sophisticated was in the U.S. last month and was accepting pre-order items. I asked her whether I could order the said balms since it was pretty apparent that I don't have any other choice. She said she actually planned to buy a few and sell the balms in her OL shop.


I was eager and I waited for the balms to arrive and give them a go....

In Lemon Drop & Sweet Mint
According to their website:

"Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one.

  • Long-lasting moisture
  • Shea butter & vitamin E
  • Smoothes on clear
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
  • Twist-off top

  • 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.

directions

Twist off top. Pucker up. Smooth on. Smile."
Aren't these the cutest balms ever? I mean just look at them. They look absolutely yummy!
 The question is do the lip balms live up to their claim?

I would have to say "YES!!!" I actually super duper love these lip balms. The packaging is so unique and ingenious! It gives you precise application every time. 
These are quite cheap because you will be getting a lot of the product. I just plan to use it like a conventional lip balm when the product runs out and use my finger to get the product.
They taste and smell are absolutely divine! The taste & smell isn't strong but you will get the feeling that you are getting the flavor of the fruit/variety you purchased. 
- Sweet mint gives my lips a cooling, tingly sensation but it's not over powering or too strong. I'd say it's just the right blend to give my lips a boost and feel cool.
- Lemon drop has a really mild flavor to it. It certainly doesn't taste like lemon but tastes like lemon cookies. :3 
The packaging as I mentioned is the cutest but may not fit into your tiny purses. That's the only downside I can think of. 


The balms are clear and not heavy on the lips but you'll feel its presence on your lips. I think lipstick or lipgloss can be applied over it. 
I am also curious as to how these balms retain their shape?!? As I said these balms are ingenious and I absolutely love them! The only problem I have is, I keep re-applying them at each chance I get because I just really love them. LOL! But I can also attest to the staying power of the EOS lip balms because when I wake up in the morning I can still feel that the balm lasted throughout my sleep.
If you are also looking for a good balm. I suggest you give EOS lip balms a try.
Definitely worth every cent you spend for it. ;)

UPDATE: I forgot to mention  Get Sophisticated has many onhand items from the U.S. you girls might want to go visit her shop. She also accepts pre-orders. 


NOTE: I bought the balms with my own money. :) I am not affiliated with the seller nor EOS.

Those do look yummy. I'd be tempted to eat them, lol. It's too bad you have to apply them often, but that is good to know that it keeps your lips in good shape. :-)
