EOS Lip balm-Smooth Sphere | Review

IThis product has been raved about all over YouTube and the blog-o-sphere, and now I finally have tried it. But is it worth the hype?

EOS stands for Evolution of Smooth and is the company has some very innovative packaging. When I take this out of my bag (as I can't keep it in my pocket), people usually stare and wonder what it is. A classmate of mine actually stared at me like I was nuts, it was hilarious. Anyway, I definitely give them huge thumbs up for the cute packaging and the way you can apply the balm, that is with your mouth closed instead of that weird open mouth thing us ladies do.



The lip balm that I have is a part of the limited edition Alice in wonderland collaboration with Disney, and is the flavour "Blueberry Potion". I love the scent and taste of this lip product and apparently, the ingredients are natural and organic (i.e. good for you and none of the commercial nasties), not that it makes a huge difference to me, I'm studying Science and exposed to chemicals on a weekly basis.


It's a colourless fomula that leaves a slight gloss on the lips and it feels very lightweight. On first application, it takes quite a bit of rubbing to warm up the product, but it smooths on very easily after the initial uses. It is a moisturing lip balm, but it's just not as good as my Maybelline Baby lips, nor as long lasting, but the sweet taste does linger. However, the scent dissipates pretty fast. Maybe it doesn't last as long because the Baby Lips is thicker though.


My lips are smooth, but not as smooth as I would like. I still am experincing some dryness around the corners, which makes me go back to my favourite, the Baby Lips. I think I wuld have liked this more, if I hadn't tried the Maybelline first, but alas Maybelline has stolen my love.

Also I realised since there is no SPF in this one, that my lips have been looking quite dark and dismal.. :(

The Verdict:
Pros:
  • Good amount of product
  • Moisture in one or two swipes
  • Tastes yummy
  • Gives a bit of sheen
  • Lips are relatively smooth
  • Cute, innovative packaging
  • Twist-off lid
  • Ingredients are 95% organic and 100% natural
Cons:
  • Packaging though bright and fun may not suit all ages
  • Bulky for stroage (too big for pockets)
  • Not the most moisturising lip balm there is
  • Not available in Barbados
  • Limited Edition flavour
The Raw Sugar:
I would repurchase this simply for the novelty of the packaging and the taste. It's not the most moisturising lip balm, but it is fun. Not worth the all hype about being the best, just is cute and "organic". I love my Baby Lips more, but maybe the other lip balms they have are better, since some are medicated, others had sunscreen, etc.

  2. I love baby lips too... but my ABSOLUTE favorite is FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment. It has SPF, smells wonderful, a little goes a long way, and it's just awesome stuff! A little pricey but worth it.
