Thankfully, gone are the days where the only lip balm choices were boring like Carmex and Blistex! Not to be shady, but I am so glad that we have more feminine and fun brands to choose from now. One of my absolute favorites is the EOS brand.
By first glance, I had no idea what I was looking at ,but I was a bit intrigued. The ones that I first ran across were a collection of colorful spheres! I mean, although I am not one to keep up with all of the latest trends, but I think that everyone could agree that shying away from your standard “stick” was a pretty creative idea. So, I bought a couple. The price was pretty impressive as well. They ran me about 3 bucks or so at my local WalMart. Not bad at all.
I chose the EOS Vanilla Bean (my absolute favorite) and the EOS Passion Fruit (ulta.com). I honestly wasn’t expecting much out of them because a cute package doesn’t usually equate to a good a product, but I was very impressed! The flavors were very rich, but subtle enough to not taste too much like candy. This makes them suitable for both adults and younger folk. However, what really sold me was the consistency. EOS lip balms go on as smooth as butter, and the application lasts for several hours! I have super sensitive lips, so I was pretty excited once I saw that they are made with Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and SPF 15 (to protect from the sun)! I noticed that my lips felt a lot softer after a week or so of use. Needless to say, I am a frequent purchaser and a constant consumer of this trendy brand of lip balm!
