The eos lipbalm is one of the most popular lipbalms around. Many US celebrities have been seen using this lipbalm with its recognizable shape. This was on the top of my list when I visited the US for work. However since a few months, this lipbalm is easily available in the Netherlands (finally!) in four different flavors/scents. I’ve received the eos lipbalm in Sweet Mint which I’m going to review for you today.
The packaging of the eos lipbalm in Sweet Mint has a light pastel, minty blue shade and has a spherical shape that eos lipbalms are known for. The eos (which stands for Evolution of Smooth) logo is carved on the top of the cap. There’s also a dent on the side for an easy grip.
The product is revealed after removing the screw off cap. The lipbalm has a spherical shape and looks milky white. You get 7 grams of product, which is about twice as much as what you get in a chapstick. The lipbalm is 100% natural and according to eos, packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter, and jojoba oil. They are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and paraben and petrolatum free.
I’ve used the eos lipbalm in Sweet Mint by applying the lipbalm directly on my lips. Because of the shape, it is very easy to apply the lipbalm. The lipbalm leaves a thin transparent layer on my lips and makes them look a little shiny (but not glossy). The lipbalm does feel moisturizing but the effect is not as strong compared to a super thick lipbalm. I personally prefer thinner lipbalms like the eos lipbalm when I’m not wearing lipsticks during the day and thicker, more moisturising and nourishing lipbalms at night before bedtime. The Sweet Mint scent/flavor is very strong. You can immediately notice the pepper minty scent when screwing off the cap. When applied on the lips, it has that same cooling sensation like when you eat a peppermint or chewing gum. It also tastes sweet and pepper minty.
I really love the Sweet Mint scent/flavor, it feels so refreshing which is especially great during hot summer days. I’m really happy to have received this product and have been using this non-stop. The eos lipbalm in Sweet Mint is available for € 5,95 Euro at Douglas.nl and selected Douglas stores.
