A diva is always known by having soft, smooth lips and a great way to keep your lips in top shape is to have a great lip balm.
Now I have very sensitive skin and not every lip product agrees with me. I cannot use Chapstik brand lip balms because they cause my lips to swell up and peel. I have tried a few other balms with varying degrees of success until I found my one true savior in Pucker Ups lip balm.
I decided to try out Eos lip balms because I have heard a few good things about them and since they claim to be natural I really liked that.
I ordered the sweet mint flavor pictured above and I already like it in the first five minutes of using the product. The container is cute although it is a bit large for my taste. My other regular lip balm could fit easily in my pocket or in a tiny purse without creating a bulge.
This round shaped applicator does create a bulge in my tiny purse and it looks outright ridiculous in my pocket so I will not be keeping it in there.
According to Ulta the list of ingredients seem to be as close to natural as I have seen on any packaging. Here is the list of ingredients that can be found in the lip balm.
Sweet Mint: Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax (Cire Dabeille)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extract*, Tocopherol, Limonene1, Linalool1. 1Component of Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil*.
I threw my wrapper away before I decided to write this review so I cannot verify the actual list..but that looks about correct.
I love the fact that so many of the ingredients are simple oils like coconut and olive oil which we already know to be moisturizing from using them on our hair.
The balm has a light pleasant scent and the mint is really cooling on the lips without being overbearing. It goes on light and does not feel waxy like some other balms...I just need a few more days to see how it compares to my favorite.
