I love anything strange and gimmicky – its just a lot of fun to discover new things so when I saw this EOS lipbalm the first time round I wasn’t really too interested.
Then I was browsing eBay and saw these super cute little dough balls and had to buy a few to try.
The gimmick is of course, that its shaped like a ball and the lipbalm is a dome shape. Does this make it easier to apply to the lips? Errrrrmmm. Maybe? Its ok. But I don’t care, it looks cute and I feel like a kid with a push pop every time I use it.
Incase you need a visual:
EOS lip balm comes in four flavours – Sweet Mint, Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew and Lemon Drop SPF15 (I didn’t realise before I chose summer fruit and honeysuckle that lemon drop had a spf, otherwise I would’ve picked it!).
Here they are!
Sometimes I buy lipbalms in nice packaging then it all goes wrong because the ingredients are a steaming pile of poo – full of mineral oil and petroleum.
Not so with EOS….EOS is 95% organic, and is paraben and petroleum free.
It contains shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E.
The ingredients list is impressive – nothing nasty going on here.
Here are the lip balms sans wrappers – I love this rubberised packaging they have going on!
Summer Fruit is indeed fruity without being overwhelming, and Honeysuckle reminds me of melons….because its supposed to*
*Speaking of honeydew melon, does anyone else get an itchy throat when they eat it?
The balms! I love them! How cute!
They remind me of so many things! Like:
2. Eggs in egg cups
3. Whiteheads (just sayin’)
4. That magic trick from when I was a kid and you’d pretend there was a ball in a cup and instead you’d lift off the fake ball with the lid. Remember?!
5. Bums! Although I don’t know anyone with such a pasty bum.
But, this can be as cute as you like, smell as good as you like, be as organic as you like – the question is, is it any good?
I would say yes!
On the downside, this lip balm is not as rich and creamy as I usually like with lip balms.
The EOS balm thats left feels a little thinner than my favourite balms, BUT I think it definitely does a good job protecting and healing my lips…so I can forfeit the lack of creaminess that I usually like.
Applying it like a crazy person:
It’s cheap, its certainly cheerful, its natural, its a good product! I say – WIN!
I bought these from eBay for £4.75 each – please do a search on eBay plenty come up.
