Today I’m reviewing EOS lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Mint.
First off, I have to admit that I’ve never tried EOS lip balm. Ever. I’ve used lots of other brands, but never EOS. I’m a huge lip balm user. As a result, I was kind of excited to be able to give these two EOS lip balms a try.
I hate when my lips feel dry, so I feel like I’m applying it all the time. It’s probably more like every few hours though. I have one on my desk, one on my night stand, one in my bag – you get the idea. I currently have these two on my desk.
I’m huge fan of the scent of the Strawberry Sorbet EOS lip balm. It smells like strawberries without being too over the top or fake. Both of these lip balms go on clear and don’t provide much shine. I felt like they kept my lips feeling moisturized for a fair amount of time, a few hours or so. Of course I had to apply a bit more often if I was eating or drinking.
I typically don’t go for mint things (the smell and flavor is usually too strong for my liking), but I was pleasantly surprised that I like the Sweet Mint one. Maybe I need to give minty things – whatever they are – more of a chance.
The only thing that I didn’t like was the shape of the lip balm. I know it’s a signature for EOS,but it made putting it in my pocket a bit of a pain because it looked weird and bulgy. In addition, it was tough to get enough coverage in just a few swipes until the top of the lip balm was flatter. Really, those are just nitpicky things and overall I was happy with the actual formula of the lip balm.
I received both of these EOS lip balms from chickadvisor.com for free in exchange for a free review. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting my blog, I appreciate it!
