EOS Lip Balm
Aren't these EOS lip balms cute? And they're 95% organic to boot!
EOS lip balms feature a spherical shape which is ergonomic and refreshingly different than your average tube or pot of lip balm. These lip balms come in five flavors: lemon drop (with SPF 15), honeysuckle honeydew, summer fruit, medicated tangerine, and sweet mint. Pictured above are summer fruit (pink), honeysuckle honeydew (green), and medicated tangerine (orange).
The Honeysuckle Honeydew smells just like freshly cute melon thanks to honeydew melon extract. The Summer Fruit balm sports a mix of blueberry, strawberry, and peach extracts, which when all mixed together smells like apricot or passionfruit to me :) Medicated Orange definitely smells a little medicinal, possibly because of the Zinc Dioxide, but I've gotten used to it.
The balm itself is thin and chock-full of nourishing oils like olive oil, coconut oil, and jojoba oil. I find that the balms are too thin to adequately protect lips from dry winter weather; but in the spring, summer, and autumn they're wonderful.
