When I first saw these pastel balls at CVS, they piqued my interest. You know we’re all pastel-crazed this Spring so anything in mint or lavender is pretty much a gimme. At $3.79, I bought one. Now, what are they? EOS, or the Evolution of Smooth, is 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free lip balm. I don’t always look for organic products but I figure something that I put on my mouth should probably be safe. As for the packaging, I can’t fault it! It took me a couple tries to figure out that the tops screw off (embarrassing? maybe) but once you get that down it’s a lot of fun to apply lip balm in a new way! It’s like having a brand new toy and wanting to play with it all the time. Sure, it’s a little gimmicky, but anything that will convince me to hydrate my lips more often is a great thing. If you’re not into the ball, it also comes in a stick. So far, my lips are smooth and soft, success! Prior to this I was a Burt’s Bees addict, but I actually think my lips are smoother now than ever before (that could be because I’ve been using it so often). I found mine at CVS but you can get them on the EOS website as well. I chose the flavor Summer Fruit, which is delish, but I’m reeeally wanting to try the lemon drop and the sweet mint!

I’m trying to enforce a rule, I can’t buy a new one until I finish my first one. Just one more reason to use it all the time!

    They´re great. However the price in Denmark is quite different. More in the line of $15 or 16 dollars. I hate that because they are some of the best lipbalms around and you don´t have to put your finger in the pot to apply.//Betina

    $15!!? Definitely wouldn't be able to get multiple flavors at that price. I guess I'm grateful they're so cheap here then!

    Gosh, i've been hearing quite some bloggers raving about this EOS lip balm! I've seen it over here in Hong Kong a few years ago but i think it's about time i look into it! And i didn't know they do them in sticks too! I just had to laugh when you said cant buy a new one until you finish the first one because i got that problem too! I've got like 4 lip balms right now! lol but these EOS beauties are hard to resist;)great beauty post, hope to see more of them, Cristina!!!Cinz
