A Green Monday review of a lip balm worthy of our Mag 7 list:
Have you ever been on line at the supermarket or drugstore and spied all the tempting products lined up in front of the register? You wonder who buys those products (I totally do! ~Tyna) , and try to figure out why you’re not one of those people? As you debate over and over in your mind if you’re going to pick up that new candy bar or that funny shaped lip balm, it is suddenly your turn to pay and the moment has passed. Well, I have had many moments like that when it comes to the eos Lip Balms, and find the little sphere shaped version especially enticing. The cute round shape intrigued me and the fun colors attracted me like a peacock to feathers, but I never bought or tried an eos product. Thank goodness for we heart this and our never-ending search for the best lip balms on the market.
When I saw the eos balms made the review teams Magnificent 7: Lip Balms list, I made a mental note to pick one up the next time I saw an eos display. Then, lo and behold, an eos Lip Balm arrived in my wht review package! The unique name, eos, is short for “Evolution of Smooth” and this company delivers Green Monday worthy and approved, all natural smoothness to lips in need.
All eos lip balms are certified USDA organic, and made with 95% certified organic ingredients. Besides being mostly organic, they are 100% natural and made without petrolatum and parabens. The main ingredients include jojoba oil for long-lasting moisture; shea butter for softening; and vitamin E for antioxidant protection and healing.
And let’s not forget that adorable recyclable packaging! These balms are brightly colored and packaged with a sturdy “soft touch” plastic for a unique feel. Stef couldn’t resist the Sphere shaped balm in Summer Fruit ($3.99) and promptly scooped up one to test. She reports that although the wide and kind of odd shape takes a bit of practice to get used to applying, the fact that the balm can sit on her bed side table, without the threat of rolling away, has made her a big fan.
I tried the more standard balm style, the Smooth Stick Balm in Sweet Mint (also $3.99). The balm stick was wider and thicker than most balms, and I was able to cover both of my lips with only one application. (This is especially helpful when you’re trying to put some on the chapped lips on squirmy preschoolers.) My mouth was instantly moisturized, and the mint tingled my lips a little. It didn’t sting, and the feeling wore off quickly. The balm stick also comes in two other yummy flavors–pomegranate raspberry and vanilla bean–that probably will not have the same tingling sensation of the mint, but sound very tasty.
With the all natural ingredients and its organic certification, not to mention the tiny price tag and fab packaging, you really can’t go wrong with eos Lip Balm in either the sphere or the stick. I easily rate this balm 5 out of 5 stars. But don’t take my word for it, since the eos balms were at the top of the review team list, I’m sure they will be here soon to join in the love – make sure to check the comments for their thoughts.
So, the next time you’re standing in line at the register, wondering if you should buy that funny looking eos lip balm, follow your impulse and do it![ratings]
