Lip Balms and Me: I absolutely love lip balms. If I was abandoned on a desert island, and I could only have one beauty product with me, it would be lip balm every time. To say I'm addicted to it, is probably an understatement, because I think that I am actually incapable of going ten minutes without applying it.
During the winter, when the weather is uber cold and my lips tend to chap, I usually use a medicated one from Blistex (which I first discovered on a trip to Canada, and have been hooked ever since!), so when Spring rolls around, I am always relieved to be able to break out the fruity ones that are more for show than medicated or moisturising.
Role ahead to about three weeks ago, and I had found myself with a little extra cash, that I'd decided to treat myself with something I've never tried, so that I could review it on my blog, and I chose the Eos Summer Fruits Lip Balm.
What does Eos mean? Eos stands for "Evolution of Smooth".
Flavours: The Eos Lip Balm actually comes in five flavours:
- Summer Fruits (which is the "original" flavour, and the one I picked)
- Lemon Drop (with added SPF)
- Honeysuckle Honeydew
- Medicated Tangerine (which I may have to give a try next Winter!!)
- Sweet Mint
eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.
Price: I paid just over £5 (including postage) for this, on Ebay, but I've since discovered that a couple of British-based website sell it for £4.75, which might seem a bit steep for a lip balm, in a market where £2-£3 is the average, but trust me when I say that this is a great product, that everyone should try. Plus, I'm pretty certain that it will last for a very long time!
Where: As I said, you'll find a couple of fairly priced sellers on Ebay, but you can also purchase it from the Naturally Fabulous website.
Would I purchase this again? Definitely. I can not speak any more highly for this lip balm! It smells delicious, is so smooth and 100% natural and free from all those nasties that we all hate!
