Hello, Everyone! How are you doing today?
This post is going to talk about the brand “EOS ( Evolution Of Smooth)” Lip Balm Spheres.
When they were first released they were a popular demand but, honestly it took me a while to try it out and I’m glad I waited… I’m also glad I didn’t spend any of my own money on these things. The first EOS sphere I tried was the Strawberry Sorbet and I got it for Christmas 6/7 years ago now. In total now, I have tried 3 different flavours: Strawberry Sorbet, Vanilla Mint & Sweet Mint.
This product claims to be 95 organic and 100% Paraben, Petroleum and Gluten free. It is infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and, Jojoba Oil for moisture. It’s said to give you long lasting moisture and smoothly glide on, colorless.
Which all sounds very nice but, I actually do not like this product, would never buy this product again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, to be honest. I feel like this product really wasn’t worth the hype at all and I feel that it is actually bad for your lips, I discontinued use and have 3 practically full ones kicking around somewhere.
The first thing that people see is the packaging so, I think it was really clever to come out with the sphere design for the products packaging. These little balls come in a variety of colors by flavour, some even have a cute swirl design on them and all of them, a twist off cap. I think the EOS lip balms idea of the little spheres was definitely trendsetting almost evolutionary.
They make great stocking stuffers too!
My thoughts on the product itself, however, is not that great but, I’ll start with my positive thoughts!
The things I liked about this lip balm line is that it comes in many different flavours that all smell and taste very good, Some of them are advertised to have SPF. Conveniently they are available almost anywhere and its cost efficient & long lasting.
The things I did not like about this product are: I feel that this product is not moisturizing at all. I feel that this product actually did the exact opposite to my lips and made them worse in which I have still yet to recover. I started developing a red rash around my lips and my lips themselves were dry, crusted almost and peeling back like crazy, Everytime I put more of it on it only made it worse. It is also very waxy so it leaves a thick coating on your lips.
It’s said that this lip balm is supposed to soothe chapped lips and lock in moisture but I just watched my lips do the exact opposite and get physically, visibly worse.
I read a bunch of different articles that all said that it was an allergic reaction I was experiencing but, I had also stumbled upon a few articles that had proven cases of mold growth in the lip balm and that was the cause. None the less I discontinued use after coming to the conclusion that it was doing more harm than good.
So, To conclude, I guess it’s safe to say I would NOT recommend these to anybody even though everyone hypes about them.
I just don’t feel that they are worth the hype, money or the sacrifice of your beautiful lips!
Feel free to let me know your thoughts on the EOS Lip Balms and if you have had a more pleasant experience with them!
Thank you to everyone for reading my post on EOS Lip Balm! Have a great Day!
