My Experience with EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm – Blueberry Acai:
Being blessed with dry skin, winters especially tends to be really harsh for my skin. During winters, I cannot let a day go by without moisturizing my skin that includes my lips. My lips tends to chap and crack very easily therefore I need to hoard as many lip balms as I can and if you are like me who has a love for collecting lip balms, you cannot let this little darling of a product slip away. This is a must-have for every collector.
I must admit I wanted this product just for the packaging. The sphere shape with a smooth texture feels so good and luxurious. The packaging does feel like a cheap plastic. It has the word EOS engraved on the top and bottom. The cap is opened by twisting it like a cap of a bottle and it closes with a click therefore you can be sure that it is secure . The ball packaging though it’s not as sleek and compact as the regular stick lip balms, it is still travel friendly if you don’t mind it occupying extra space in your purse. The size is perfect to fit in your hands and the application is very easy too. The bottom part is flattened out so that it is able to stand on its own on your vanity, so no tension of the ball rolling away!
The texture and feel of this lip balm is as unique as its packaging. This lip balm does not feel as slippery on the lips as other lip balms I have used. It also is very thick in texture hence coats the lips with a layer of moisture. Hence this lip balm will be perfect to use under lipstick, especially matte lipsticks as it does not have that shiny slippery look on the lips.
The smell of this lip balm is so delicious. Though I do not detect any scent of blueberry in particular, but it does smell very fruity. It also tastes delicious, very sweet like candy yet not overpowering. It just makes you want to lick your lips.
Staying Power/Effect on Lips:
I was actually disappointed about this aspect of this lip balm. It does stay on the lips for quite a few hours and doesn’t fade away or transfer away quickly, yet it does nothing to help or fix my dry lips. My lips do feel moisturized and smooth till the time this product is on my lips, but this lip balm in no way helps heal or prevent my chapped lips. Once this product fades away, my lips still feel completely parched with no hint that it ever got hydrated with this lip balm.
Overall, I think this product is not as functional as it should be, but it definitely has a charming look. No, I do not regret having this in my collection. It may work great for summers when my lips are not that dry, but for winters, I suggest you go for more hydrating lip balms. In short, this lip balm is “all style and no substance.”
Pros of EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm – Blueberry Acai:
- Cutest packaging.
- Comes in a variety of colors and flavors.
- Definitely a collector’s item.
- Amazing fruity scent and sweet taste.
- Thick texture.
- Good to wear under drying lipsticks.
Cons of EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm – Blueberry Acai:
- Does not hydrate or improve the condition of dry lips in the long run.
