EOS Lip Balm - What's All The Fuss About?


I'm sure you've all heard of the EOS lip balms, if not then you must have been living under a rock!
EOS which stands for 'Evolution of Smooth' is an American brand that's built up quite the celebrity following, with people like Kim Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Scherzinger, Kylie Jenner and even Ed Westwick (just to name a few) being fans of the lip balm it's no surprise that it's become such a cult product.



When I was in London back in early June my lovely friend Amy bought me an EOS lip balm in the flavour 'Pomegranate Raspberry', and who knew you could get so excited about a product that's designed to keep your lips soft?
Ever since I got it I've been using this product several times a day, every day, and I adore it.
Firstly, the simple but instantly recognisable packaging is great. I love that it's not a standard tube that most lip balms come in, and I love even more that it's not one of those pots that you have to stick your finger in, then smear the product onto your lips (how unhygienic). The sphere, soft, matte packaging is unique and it also makes it a lot easier to locate if you're rummaging through your bag to find it. The sphere shape continues with the product inside, it's domed which makes it easy to apply.
The lip balm is a soft but fairly waxy constancy, it's not heavy but it's not so light that it feels like it's doing nothing either. I've heard a few people say they're not a fan of the actual balm, but I think it's the best I've tried; especially under lipsticks! The scent is to die for as well - it's fruity and yummy, not overpowering or synthetic.

I've not suffered with dry or chapped lips since using it, not once, and I suppose this Winter will be a try test, but I have faith in EOS.

  1. I like that you say it is great under lipsticks. I never go without a lip balm under my lipstick, it always adds extra staying power. I have been liking the Palmer's lip balms lately - the dark chocolate and cherry is pretty strong smelling though!

  4. Thanks for the review! I tried EOS once and liked it, especially under lip glosses, but towards the end the smell of the balm changed. I couldn't stand it so I had to toss it before I finished it! The scent was not too strong but it was not very good!
