I am In Loveee With Evolution Of Smooth Lip Balms!
Who hates chapped lips? I do! And for some reason or another I seemed to have them all the time. It may have been a combination of things living here in the UAE, the AC and the hot weather being the two main culprits. It felt like a vicious circle too, when I didn’t exfoliate them they look cracked, but when I did, most of the time they ended up looking worse and feeling sore. I tried a number of products both pharmacy prescribed and what felt like all the popular branded lip balms/sticks, unfortunately nothing seemed to help me long term.
However, all is not lost, I have finally discovered a product that actually works! I love these lip balms for a number of reasons, but most importantly my lips are now smooth and not a crack in sight.
Evolution of Smooth or EOS, you may have heard of them? I have seen a number of celebrity endorsements (the Kardashians, Nicole Scherzinger, Demi Lovato to name a few). Although I am usually apprehensive with celebrity promotions (they are paid to say it’s good right?), but I am very glad I decided to try these delicious lip balms myself.
I ordered a pack of 5 from a souq.com, a local online eCommerce brand similar to Ebay and Amazon. I paid 131.46 AED which worked out at around 4GBP/7USD per lip balm. You can certainly get them a cheaper in the US and the UK though, one of the cons of the expat life!
The balms are a small sphere shape which I like, very easy to open and apply quickly and fit well in a small clutch. They packaging is cute and practical too.
The pack I bought came in 5 flavors, Passion Fruit, Blue Acai, Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint and Summer Fruit. Believe me when I say they are true to taste! Good enough to eat, every single balm is delicious and smells great. Once applied, your lips look naturally plump and have a lovely soft glow. It isn’t sticky either and the softness lasts for up to 4 hours. They can also work as a great base for your lip gloss or lipstick. Also, I was reading an article recently about sweet tasting lip blams and curbing cravings. Basically, some studies have shown that you can trick you mind into thinking you have eaten something sweet by simply applying a tasty lip balm… wow!
Now for my favorite part… these lip balms are 100% natural and 95% organic… yay! No nasty chemicals or harmful toxins and to be honest with you I think that is why this product actually works. The two main ingredients are shea butter and jojoba oil, both work wonders on dry skin and are full of Vitamin E. This super Vitamin has amazing moisturizing properties and works well with SPF products to help protect you skin and fight inflammation. Other great ingredients in these balms include coconut oil (if you have been following my blog or know me you will know I am obsessed with this stuff), beeswax, honeysuckle flower extract and sunflower seed oil just to name a few.
I am so happy to finally find a product which nourishes my lips, especially since I now have 5 of them! I apply the balm first thing in the morning, throughout the day at my desk and before bed. I keep one handy in my bag too and use it on the go to keep my lips nice and moisturized. I would recommend this product to anyone, EOS lip balms make my lips look and feel great.
Have you used any of the EOS products before?
