Review: EOS Lip Balm Smooth Sphere in Lemon Drop

I received this in a swap back in July. I've completely flattened the dome on mine now so I thought it was about time I shared my rave review of these beauties!

Product: EOS Lip Balm Smooth Sphere in Lemon Drop

Price: Around $3.49 in the States. You can get them in the UK from EBay (prices vary) and NatruallyFabulous.co.uk for £4.75

Description: "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."

What's Good About It?
The packaging is really cute, it smells great and it works. I am addicted to this stuff! I apply it several times a day and put on a thick layer at night. This is a good base for lipstick because it's not as slippery as something like Vaseline. The scent is obviously lemon but it's a nice lemon scent - it's not too sweet or too strong.

What's Disappointing?
I don't have a lot to complain about with this. I do find that if I use it too much and then stop using it, my lips become drier more quickly. The packaging may also seem bulky to some people. My cat likes stealing it to play with too which can be a little annoying!

Overall Score/Comment: 9/10 - this is a nice lip balm and it looks cute. The fact I've almost finished this balm is pretty amazing - I'm terrible at finishing up products!

Have you tried any of these? I think I'm going to try Summer Fruit next!

  1. I also got a few in a couple of swaps! they smell superyummy, I already finished one honeysuckle honeydew and one summer fruit... and have a second summer fruit next to my computer to apply when I work! I find them great underneath lipsticks and lipglosses, also because they are all natural so they protect your lips from any "bad" ingredient in glosses and lipsticks...but unfortunately in very cold weather I find them not rich enough, at least for my superdry lips which always need extra moisture. so, that's the only thing...I pretty much keep them on my sleeping table or computer table, and then keep a stronger one (also natural) in my bag! :)

  2. I've just started a Summer Fruit one...I have to say I do prefer Lemon Drop (I'm so glad I have two of them!). Yeah, I'm lucky in that I don't get very dry lips anyway so these are enough for me most of the time but if I do want something more moisturizing, I put on a thick layer of Carmex at night :) xx
