Ola bonita chica’s!
I have year round terribly dry lips. I love matte finish lipsticks so much but with my cracked and chapped lips it is such a struggle pulling them off. With this new liquid to matt trend exploding like crazy (which is so much better than reapplying lipstick all day) I figured I have to fix my lips somehow and fast too. Plus with the summer here I do not have much of a choice than to drink lots of fluids and invest in a good lip balm. I know a lot of you out there have the same problem as me (or at least I hope that I am not alone) which is why I am reviewing for you guys a lip balm that I grabbed recently and am totally loving right now! Let me tell you a little bit more about it!
The eos Lip Balm Sphere has the cutest packaging ever! Plus what attracted me to it was the pink packaging because I am such a sucker for adorable pink things. So I have sized it up for you using some coins from India, US, New Zealand and Singapore just so you know that this is pretty small and will fit easily in your bag! The flat end helps your rest it on your dresser counter and the fuss free twist off mechanism off the top reveals the egg shaped balm inside. There is also a flat end to the balm on the side so it facilitates easy twisting motion to open. I also just love the two toned pink stripes!
USD 2.99 for 7 gram of product and I have even seen them for $4 too
My experience with the eos Coconut Milk Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere:
This pink zebra egg looking thing is currently saving my lips from feeling like the Indian highways after the monsoon! This was an impulse buy at check out if I am being honest, but it really has changed my view of eos Lip Balms. I thought everyone just carries them around because they look cute, but this has worked wonders for my lips. It did not happen overnight though and I noticed a difference only after 4 or 5 days which really did impress me.
On day 1 I sadly got the worst scratchy marks on that beautiful convex surface of the lip balm thanks to my horribly dry lips. Because of that I felt like I got more product on my lips than necessary and I had to smoothen it out with my finger wasting some of the product. But I kept going and I reapplied it during my normal work day after 4 or 5 hours. Now because of its globular shape I did have some problem carrying it around in my pocket so I had to leave it in my bag only to come back for it later in the day. My second morning was no different but I applied it like normal that night before sleeping and on the third day I noticed that my dry bits of lip were not sticking out sharply like before and a visible crack in the center of my bottom lip had healed. By the 5th day I had smooth soft lips with no visible cracks or flaky patches and I was in love with this even though it looked awkward in whichever pocket I tried to stuff this in.
This lip balm has the most delectable scent to it but it is not only coconut but also this fresh smelling feeling to it. I kept licking it off the first day I wore it. It was super smooth and easy to apply. Even on the first day when I felt like I had a bit too much product on, it never felt greasy or heavy as I applied it (kind of how yucky Vaseline feels). Once it fixed my lips, lipstick application became so much easier and it even made my liquid to matte lipsticks not dry out my lips. I have tried the Lemon Drop with SPF 15 which is a similar eos Lip Balm Sphere that did nothing for me so I am glad I took the risk and tried this one out which has worked well so far!
The biggest con I feel is now that I’m quickly using up this lip balm the convexity has become flat. So it is kind of like applying a twist up lip balm which has a huge diameter to it so I get this product on the outside of my lips if I do not pucker my lips enough. It is making me wonder what will happen when I kind of get to the base, and will I then have to start sticking my finger in it just to apply. That remains to be seen!
Pros of the eos Coconut Milk Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere:
Great scent, not overpowering
Works quick to smoothen lips and heal cracks
Cons of the eos Coconut Milk Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere:
The shape is a design flaw, difficult to apply as it gets flatter
It is not easy to keep on your person in pockets
Would I repurchase or recommend the eos Coconut Milk Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere?
I was put off by an earlier eos Lip Balm so I am glad I purchased this and tried it out because it worked for me. But because of the shape of it and the having to stick my fingers in it once it gets to the end part I would not repurchase this. I think it is cute so if you want to buy it for that go ahead. I am also thinking of reusing the packaging as a bed side or travel jewellery case once I clean this out!
3.5/5 solely for the design flaw. Great product though!
