A lot of people have been raving about this lip balm since 2009 and some of my followers recommended this product to me, so I decided to buy it and give it a try. Today I will review the Evolution Of Smooth (EOS) Lip Balm - Summer fruit flavor. They have five other flavors which are Sweet mint, Pomegranate Raspberry, Medicated Tangerine, Lemon Drop with SPF 15 and Honeysuckle Honeydew.
What does it claims?
- Long-lasting moisture
- Smoothes on clear
- New smooth sphere precisely glides on to the lips
I'm loving the packaging of this lip balm. It's so cuteee! It has an egg shape and it's pink! Besides, it is easy on the grip and easy to open because of the rubber non-slip container. The lip balm itself is yellow while it's white on the picture of their website >.<".
The packaging smells like rubber (duh! because it has a rubber packaging). When you twist the top off you will smell something chemical. However, the lip balm itself smells very nice and fruity, it's so nice that I almost want to eat it hahaha ='D.
I bought it for $5 on sasa.com which is quite expensive for a lip balm. However there is 7 oz in it, which is a lot. I think that it will last for a year or so.
Twist off top. Pucker up. Smooth on. Smile :). My previous lip balm was the vaseline pocket size which has a sucky/ non-hygienic packaging. This packaging is way better than the vaseline pocket size since I don't need to apply the product with my finger.
The EOS lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural and paraben, phthalate, gluten and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil.
♥ Adorable packaging
♥ Lip balm has a nice fruity scent
♥ Lots of product, can use it for a year
♥ Contains 100% natural ingredients
♥ Makes my lips smooth
♥ Applies smooth
♥ Quite expensive for a lip balm
♥ Hydration will only last for 2.5 hours or so
I'm LOVING the packaging and the scent. That's probably the reason why most of the people like this product so much. I really thought this was super moisturizing for my lips, but it only moisturizes for approximately 2.5 hours, so I need to re-apply it quite often =(. Therefore, I won't recommend this to people with very dry lips. Will I purchase this again? Hmm.. Yes, because I'm a sucker for cute packaging \^o^/ and the scent is just so nice! Besides I do think that this product is worth the $5, since you can use it for a year. I probably would try a different flavor though, like the lemon drop with SPF 15 for in the summer :).
My thoughts goes out to Japan, Hawaii and all the other places who are affected by the earthquake that occurred today ♥
