Today I'm doing a review on the EOS lip balms that have already been out since forever, but I never really got into them until recently.
I was at Costco with hubby and we were buying groceries and house-necessities when I passed by a display of the 5-pack EOS lip balms. I glanced at them and said to him, "Hubby, I remember using this a few years ago and I really didn't think they were all that." He picked it up and that's when I saw something I never realized before: 100% Natural, 95% Organic.
It's a little dangerous to assume that just because it's 95% Organic, that it must be a good product. But I purchased them because I wanted to give them another try. I already have a go-to favorite for lip balms (Philosophy Pink Almond Candy Lip Balm) but the price for this was too good to pass up (and I was curious about the whole natural and organic thing).
The front of the packaging says: "lip balm with shea butter and jojoba oil for happy, moist, super-smooth lips. 100% natural 95% organic"
The back of the packaging says: "Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one. 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.
Directions: Twist off top. Pucker up. Smooth on. Smile."
Then it proceeds to list the ingredients of each flavor.
The description on the back is so well-written >//3//< It makes the product seem so amazing!! And the packaging was really one of a kind and so cute! I love the colors they chose for them! They remind me of Easter Eggs, hehe.
The 5 pack comes with Passion Fruit (lavender), Sweet Mint (baby blue), Strawberry Sorbet (pink), Summer Fruit (red), and Honeysuckle Honeydew (green). I've tried the Strawberry Sorbet in the past and I didn't recall it being all that effective (because my lips are VERY hard to deal with, especially in winter).
|Definitely looks like colorful easter eggs here :]|
However, one really good thing about these lippies are that the scents are out of this world!!
When I opened them up for these two shots, I was hit by so many sweet and yummy smells!!~
Great for you ladies & gentlemen who love delicious smelling lip balms ^////^
|I've only tried the Strawberry one.. but I'm excited to try the rest :D|
I used the sweet mint one and I'm going to give the EOS lip balms 3.75/5 ☆ because although I love the smell, it just isn't able to compare to the Philosophy Pink Almond Candy. My philosophy lippie glides on so smoothly and is VERY moisturizing and long lasting while also giving a soft pink sheen (and I actually like the sweet scent more as well). The EOS balm, while also pretty moisturizing, just isn't able to compare. I find myself having to reapply a lot more throughout the day. Also, the EOS leaves your lips with a very light feeling (as if there's not really much product on your lips) while the Philosophy has a more glossy feeling. That's really up to your own preference.
However, you have to look at the prices. I got all 5 of the EOS for a little under $15 while the Philosophy Pink Almond Candy lippie cost over $12.
Have you used the EOS balms or Philosophy Pink Almond Candy? What do you think about them? ^_^
