Lip balm is essential for any girl with dry lips. As we enter the colder months its even more important to keep you lips hydrated. EOS is a brand that I’ve loved forever and have featured in previous blog posts. This brand is fairly new to the UK and is often very expensive for this reason. So naturally I bought a load in America where it is so fricking cheap. Honestly it cost like $2.97 for one sphere balm and here it is £6.50 what is up with that??
Sphere Lip Balms
Okay so lets get this rolling (pun intended). I already had three of these they just happened to be the ones that were left from packets I’ve been given before! The green one is melon it came in a pack of five along with loads of other flavours! I picked up the coconut one and the vanilla mint both from selfridges. Yes, I paid the price. So when I was in the USA I decided to buy the blueberry one as it was the only one I needed to fill my collection of the spiral balms. I also chose to get another sweet mint because holy lord, this is the most amazing lip balm EVAAAARRRR!!
These lip balms are so great. They aren’t greasy at all and leave your lips so hydrated and don’t need topping up too often. I also love how it has little indents/grooves in the packaging which means you can get a good grip on it. So ya know if you’re really desperate you could probably easily chuck this at someone.
Stick Lip Balms
The stick lip balms don’t seem to be widely available in the UK in comparison the the spheres. I’m sure amazon will stock them though so you might find them there. I picked up two packets of these as I thought they would be handy to have. I chose vanilla just as I had looked everywhere for this one in the sphere form but struggled to find any that hadn’t been used in the shop. It smells amazing. I could honestly eat it, it smells like ice cream and I’m all about that life.
It’s good value for money with the sticks. You get two in a packet and they are priced at $3.88 but of course there’s tax on top of that! Tax on top really threw me when I was in Florida. I also picked up the strawberry sorbet flavour. I knew I’d like these ones from having previously owned the sphere. The sticks are basically the same formula as the spheres so if you haven’t tried them you’ll know you’ll like them.
You can never have too much hand cream… right? Well that was my thinking when I bought yet another American hand cream. I love this hand cream. My friend bought me one when she went to London before EOS was accessible in Boots and elsewhere. I instantly fell in love with this one. The packaging is so simple and easy to use and as its silicone it means you can just throw it in your bag and not worry about it exploding everywhere. The amount of product you get is also so deceiving. The bottle looks small but in reality it goes forever. The flavour of this one is berry blossom which is lush. As it claims it certainly does have a fast absorption rate and doesn’t make you want to fan your hands around forever to get it to dry. So overall 10/10 would recommend.
