Packaging

I must admit that the most beautiful thing about this lip balm is the packaging 😛 It comes in a plastic egg shaped container that has a twist off cap . Inside this is a smaller ball-shaped mound of lip balm. It comes in many attractive colors like blue , red , pink , purple , green etc etc . So the packaging may seem to be very convenient for some and inconvenient for others depending on how you want to carry it . If you want to carry it in your pants pocket .. just forget it 😛 whereas it is very easy to find in a completely unorganized handbag like mine as it just floats around laugh

And the pic below is my toy pup , Boo 😛 with all five flavors of these balms that I own .. Awieeee … cho  chweet , isn’t it ? laugh

My Experience

I own eos lip balms in five flavors which are Summer Fruit (Red) , Sweet Mint (Blue) , Honeysuckle Honeydue (Green) , Strawberry Sorbet (Pink) and Passion Fruit (Purple). All of them have different fragrance and taste ( Yeah it tastes yummy laugh ). The flavors are more or less justified by their titles. My favorite of all five is Sweet Mint because I have never tried any mint lip balm till date. This one in particular is a cooling flavor with just a hint of mint which is very refreshing and exhilarating especially in the summer. Other favorite of mine is Strawberry Sorbet .. I love Pink laugh Ok now lets talk about the product in general 😛

This balm is neither sticky nor too thick. The texture is smooth, not too heavy or greasy like other usual balms available in the market. It glides on smoothly leaving behind a very thin coat on the lips. My lips do feel moisturized and smooth till the time this product is on my lips but it doesn’t last very long , I found myself reapplying often. I was actually disappointed about this aspect of this lip balm that it does not help a lot to heal my chapped lips. As soon as the balm washes off your lips feel dry. So I would not prefer using it in winters. It works great underneath a matte lipstick as it doesn’t leave shine after application.  It has a mild smell that is not overwhelming which is what I like about this product. The best thing about it is that it is organic and makes you feel good about applying it (Minimum chemical intake 😛 ).

You can buy it through flipkart or snapdeal .

What would I Rate it?

3/5

 

Will I repurchase ?

I might repurchase the flavor Sweet Mint as I liked it a lot and also the packaging is super cute.

 

Overall Verdict

This lip balm feels very light on the lips and works well under lipsticks but it is not as hydrating as it claims to be. Also , it is quite pricey in India and you can find a lot of other good options for this price .

 

I hope you find this review helpful . Do you own any of these ? If yes let me know how you find them in the comments section below laugh

Cheers laugh
