So a few days ago I received an Evolution of Smooth (eos) Lip Balm Smooth Sphere from their Canadian PR company. I have seen these things before on YouTube videos and blogs and I thought they were the cutest little things!
Anyways, so the eos Lip Balm Smooth Spheres just became available to all major Canadian retailers this August so now Canadians can keep their lips nice and smooth all year round!
Alright, so what exactly is so special about it you ask? Well, I can think of a few things off the top of my head. Obviously the design factor on these guys are really cool. They are literally like little eggs that you unscrew on top to get the “yolk” out of the product, being the actual lip balm. I love the packaging on this! It’s nice and smooth and I find myself constantly unscrewing it whenever it’s near me. Like if I see it sitting there I’ll pick it up and just play with it. It’s so soft and so fun to screen and unscrew.
The actual lip balm itself is huge! This thing will probably last me a few years. At first glance it looks almost too big to use on your lips, however, I think it’s supposed to be used on both of your lips at the same time. The balm also has a really nice scent to it, the one I received is the Summer Fruit flavour, the other flavours that were released in Canada are Sweet Melon and Honeysuckle Honeydew.
Lastly, and I think the biggest plus, the product is made from a blend of 100 per cent natural and 95 per cent organic ingredients, infused with vitamin E, sheer butter, and jojoba oil. It is also gluten, petrolatum, and paraben-free, so it’s good for you and the environment. With all the chemicals they put in beauty products nowadays it’s nice to see some stuff that features organic ingredients.
So my thoughts on it? Like I said, one of my favourite things about it is just playing with it. I find myself constantly applying it on my lips whenever it’s in my sight. If I were to compare this to my all-time favourite lip product Rosebud Salve, there are quite a lot of differences between the two. The eos Smooth Sphere is more of a waxy texture, whereas Rosebud Salve has a jelly one. Also, Rosebud Salve is good for things other than just your lips. With that being said, I still really like this product and have been using it over my Rosebud ever since I got it.
I’m not sure of the price in Canada, however it retails for $3.29 USD. They should be available in drug stores like Shoppers Drug Mart or you can order them online.
