Scents: Strawberry Sorbet | Lemon Drop | Summer Fruits | Honeysuckle honeydew
(edit Feb 2014 – Yay! Now you can get EOS lip balms in the UK! They are available from Selfridges)
“Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, EOS keeps lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.”
If I was stranded on an island and had to choose one luxury item to bring with me, it would be lip balm and EOS lip balms are pretty much on top of the list! It is the one beauty product that I need! I have got so many different ones because I’m always buying lip balms and I am keen to try new brands, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the EOS lip balm spheres which have been hyped and praised by American beauty bloggers. The first thing you notice is the shape of them, and the colours of the packaging. It is sturdy and really good quality. I bought the green one (which is a honeydew scent) a couple of months ago and really liked it so I bought three more!
I wanted to blog about them and tell you a little more because I haven’t seen any reviews of these on UK blogs and I know some people are intrigued by this product. The brand is currently not available on the UK high street at the moment – I don’t know if there are plans to launch it over here – but in the meantime, it can be purchased online through UK-based independently owned beauty stores such as Zuneta
, or even Amazon
. EOS have their own website
where you can purchase directly but they are based in America and shipping may cost more.
EOS products are 100% natural and 95% organic, and the lip balms are free from chemicals such as petrolatum and paraben. The feel of these balms itself are smooth and buttery with a matte application and I prefer this kind of lip product. I don’t like the glossy lip products like Vaseline, but it always feel greasy and sticky to me, and for some reason, Vaseline dries my skin out even more so once the product has faded throughout the day. EOS is moisturising and keeps lips smooth and it makes you want to apply more on, you might even get addicted to it like I am! The spheres come in seven different scents; strawberry sorbet, lemon drop, summer fruits, honeysuckle honeydew, sweet mint, medicated tangerine and passionfruit, each one in it’s own lovely colourful vibrant packaging.
They cost about £4.50 – £5.95 each depending on which retailer you buy from, and they seem to last for ages! The honeydew one hasn’t gone down much and I’ve used it everyday since I bought it a couple of months ago. I don’t normally review beauty products, but I really do love this product! It’s easy to use, surprisingly easy to hold, I think it’s fantastic that it is natural, organic and cruelty-free, and who can resist the unique and bright packaging!
