Ever since I was a little girl I have used lip balm. If my lips get dry then I suffer with them splitting and becoming so sore, or I will be tempted to pull off any loose bits of skin. I know that’s a bad habit, so I need a product which keeps them protected and hydrated all the time to prevent this happening.
Lip balm is on my list of things I don’t leave home without. My favourite at the moment is the awesome EOS.
Before I start my review then I must tell you that I have paid for this product and I have not been asked by anyone to write this. It’s my completely honest opinion of a product I like using.
Firstly I will talk about the price. I’m used to buying cheap sticks of lip balm for about 99p. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, but I was reluctant to spend around five times as much as I would normally spend on something I might not like. I patiently waited until they were on offer in Boots and got my Advantage points too, so it felt like I was getting a bargain.
The outer packaging is simple – a cardboard back and a plastic front, so you can see what you are getting inside but it is protected and secure. You would know if it had been tampered with.
The lip balm itself is a cute egg shape. The top twists off and there is a thumb grip on the side. This innovative design breaks away from the twist up stick, and from lip balm tins that you may feel are unhygienic because you have to apply it with your finger. This product is therefore very easy to apply.
On my lips it feels light, not sticky, and once applied is long lasting, even after eating and drinking. It doesn’t feel too thick or too greasy either. My lips have not dried out since I started using EOS, and that’s important to me.
I’m going to return now to value for money now. My first EOS has lasted me almost three months, even with me using it every day, several times a day. My cheaper twist up sticks would maybe last me a month at the most. I’m very happy to continue buying these when they are on offer, as I do feel they offer best value for a luxury product.
Would I recommend this to others?
Yes! Definitely I would say if you have not tried one of these then do take the plunge. There are lots of different flavours available from fruity ones to minty ones or vanilla.
My first EOS isn’t quite finished yet!
