Eos Lip Balm

The Bottom Line

These little egg shaped lip balms are unique, cute and smell fantastic. It's a fun splurge, and if you chronically find your lip balm in your washer or dryer, this is a good product for you! (It's too big not to notice!) But if you're going to the drugstore simply for a cheap and effective lip balm, you'll find cheaper options that work just as well.

Guide Review - eos: Lip Balm Sphere

If there is one thing that I'm addicted to, it's definitely lip balms. I buy them in bulk and have them in every hand bag, at my night stand and in drawers here and there. I use them so frequently that I'm always buying more.

I've been seeing eos Lip Balm Spheres pop up and decided last minute to grab one when I was at Walgreens to see if they really are worth the $4 that they cost. I bought the honeysuckle honeydew.

The little sphere itself is a great ergonomic shaped egg that has a twist off top. Inside the ball is a smaller ball-shaped mound of lip balm. The product is made with 100% natural ingredients, 95% of them being organic.

I was hoping for a silky-smooth application, but unfortunatly the product had a bit of a drag when applied. But the light hydration did last a very long time, and I found myself not needing to apply it as often as regular chap stick.

What I love is that this can float around in my completely unorganized handbag and I'll easily be able to find it, unlike chap sticks that I always confuse for pens or lipstick. Plus, as mentioned up top, the shape of the container will make it harder to accidentally wash it, as I have the horrible habit of doing.

Also, in case you're wondering, you get 0.25 ounces of lip balm with eos, versus 0.15 in a typical chap stick tube, so you are getting quite a bit more product with this particular line. It would get 5-stars if it had SPF protection included.
