Ever since EOS lip balms burst onto the scene a few years back, I have been wanting to try one. Intrigued by the shape, the amazing claims of super soft lips from the blends of oils, vitamins and butters I was one eager beaver.
Fortunately, I was recently gifted some (by my lovely friend Marie and also by some very kind viewers in America) and have been using them everyday. So, I'm now ready to share my thoughts with you.
I'll keep this short and sweet.
I like EOS Lip Balms. I enjoy the packaging and the shape of the balm pleases me. The scent is pleasant and for the amount of product you get, I think the American prices are superb (I have seen them in Target for $2.99, which I think is about £1.80). However, since they are hard to come by in the United Kingdom, prices are a little crazy. I have seen this particular flavour -Strawberry Sorbet- retail for £13.99 on Amazon. Crazy! I also recall seeing these in the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool but didn't note the price.
What I will say though is that I have been spoilt by another product, the Balmi. Reviewed last year HERE, I am yet to find a lip moisturiser that I love more. I'll be pretty sad when I run out of my current stash.
So, to sum up, I think the EOS Lip Balm is great, I'm happy and grateful for the ones I have, I will definitely use all of the product. However, if I were in a shop and both the EOS and the Balmi were on the shelf, I think I'd reach for the latter.
What do you think? Have you tried both? What do you do to keep your lips soft and smooshy?
