{Review} e.o.s. Lip Balm in Summer Fruit

February 4, 2011
The e.o.s. Lip Balms have been around for a while, yet for some reason I have had the hardest time finding them. It’s been on my list of things to try for months and it wasn’t until a week ago that I finally stumbled upon one at Ulta. Needless to say, I was pretty excited. I have seen so many people rave about this lip balm so I’ve been dying to try it. 
I was immediately attracted to this product because of the unique packaging. It almost looks like a large roller ball, but in a creamy color similar to Vaseline (in color, not texture). The top screws off to reveal the product which is surprisingly easy to apply. One swipe and you’ve covered both your lips due to its large size. The cap screws back on and “clicks” back into place.
The e.o.s. Lip Balms, which stand for Evolution of Smooth, are actually 95% organic and 100% natural making it an excellent product. It is moisturizing on the lips without being too heavy, making it the perfect lip balm to use before applying lipstick or lip gloss. I find myself constantly reapplying the balm; not because it wears off, but because I’m addicted to it! There’s something kind of fun in the application process of this balm. 
I wouldn’t necessarily say this is extremely moisturizing or a cure for chapped lips, but it does do a great job at sealing in moisture and is an overall great lip balm for use throughout the day. It also has great staying power and lasts for a few hours. The scent is fruity but not overpowering. 
My only gripe about this balm is that is has a little bit of a flavor, although it isn’t as good as it smells. It’s more of a waxy, strange medicine-like taste. It isn’t potent, but I notice it if I drink anything after immediately applying the product. More so, if I specifically take a sip of water. But it doesn’t deter me from using this item daily. It’s still a great lip balm and it’s safe to say that I’m officially addicted. 
This isn’t by any means one of the greatest lip balms on the market, it’s just a fun, inexpensive and unique product that has been receiving a lot of hype lately. I plan on buying more so that I can always have one within reach (purse, vanity, night stand and car). Yes, I like this lip balm that much!
I found mine at Ulta with the travel size products by the register for about $3.29, however they can also be found at Walgreens, CVS/pharmacy, and apparently some Target locations in the medicine aisle.
Does anyone else love this lip balm as much as I do?

    Totally 🙂 I have the same one , and I'm so happy that I have found it in Ulta last time I visited States. I got also green one for my sister, and she said it's also great as this one.
    I think it's cheap if we compare price and quantity/quality 🙂
