So I am always on the lookout for lip balms. This is a must have for me, whether in cold New York or sweltering Trinidad, I must have lip balm readily available! Flaky lips are not an option, especially when wearing lipstick. Recently, I have been partial to natural balms without mineral oil, paraffins or petrolatum. Enter the EOS lip balm….
I have heard about the EOS lip balms for a while now, particularly because they come in a very cool, conversation-starting package. I must say that I was absolutely drawn to this!!!! An ergonomic balm? Of course!!!!
As you can see, EOS contains a few ingredients, some organic, all from natural origin. It features some of my favourites, coconut oil and shea butter. So I know that I am guaranteed a certain amount of wholesome goodness and smoothness! 🙂
The outer packaging is made from hard plastic with a brushed finish. An almost perfect sphere with a flattened portion near the middle to help open and close the screw-top (which is great!!! It’s not going to accidentally open…).
The balm is hemispherical in shape and large enough to cover both lips at once. It’s really smooth and provides a lot of moisture but it’s not greasy. I also love the scent, fruity but not overpowering. Once used, its shape becomes a little flattened. I use this at night just after I exfoliate my lips with some brown sugar and when I wake up in the morning, my lips still have balm and they are still soft!!!! This would work well under lipstick or lip gloss.
So this gets 2 thumbs up from me!!!!! Definitely worth a try! I bought mine at Duane Reade in NYC in the honeysuckle honeydew flavour and I know it’s available on Amazon.com (for my Trinis!). It also comes in Summer Fruit and Sweet Mint flavours.
Overall NTB rating: A!
