Did you know that eos Lip Balm Smooth Spheres are USDA-certified organic? They are 100% natural (flavors Summer Fruit, Strawberry Sorbet, Honeysuckle, Honeydew and Sweet Mint, that is), paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free and petroleum free.
These cute little spheres come in six flavors all with jojoba oil, Shea butter and vitamin E.
- Summer Fruit
- Lemon Drop SPF 15
- Strawberry Sorbet
- Honeysuckle Honeydew
- Medicated Tangerine
- Sweet Mint
How cute are they? The packing, as the name implies, is a very smooth, soft sphere, but the bottom is flat, so they stand up on their own. Open it up to find the soft rounded lip balm inside.
They do smell and taste very much like the names imply. Some I prefer more than others (I like Medicated Tangerine, which doesn’t smell or taste “medicated” and Summer Fruit the best). They apply easily and feel nice on the lips. Not greasy or too slippery. They make a good base under a lipstick because they aren’t too thick or slick.
I don’t feel they last as long or penetrate the deeper layers of my lips (I have no idea what I’m talking about) as much as oh say the Jack Black Lip Balms, which are the GOLD standard for me. However they do work decently at moisturizing, and since the Jack Black ones are thicker and more buttery, those don’t work as well under a lipstick.
I do wish all of them had an SPF of 15 in them, but you can’t win ’em all!
