EOS Smooth Spheres

I have always been meaning to try EOS (stands for Evolution of Smooth) products for quite some time.  I read in one of my many magazines about this new drugstore line made of organic ingredients.  It's USDA approved organic, paraben-free, and contains shea butter and jojoba oil among other organic ingredients.  The lip balm-smooth sphere was just over $3, about a dollar or a little more than your usual choice of lip balm.  Am I the only one that thinks this was a play on the word "evolution" with the shape looking like an egg?
  Anyway, the store only had a few of them left, and between Honeysuckle Honeydew and Sweet Mint, I chose Sweet Mint.

At first, I thought the size was a little odd for a lip balm, but I actually found it quite convenient and fun!  I was able to find it pretty easily in my handbag.  There's a little notch on the side, making it easier to open and hold.  Also, the cover twists and snaps into place ensuring proper closure.  The product glides on pretty easily.  And because of its spherical shape, you can pucker your lips and do one swipe over and done!  I really like their Sweet Mint and look forward to trying their Summer Fruit flavor soon!  The Lemon Drop flavor is the only one with SPF 15.  Hopefully, as their products catch on, EOS will consider having SPF 15 on all lip balms.

I've only seen EOS products in CVS and Ulta, and they're placed inconspicuously.  If it weren't for the fact that I saw it in a magazine, I probably would've looked past it.  I've seen them at the end of aisles or on the stands while you wait in line.  Use the store locator on the eos website to find a store near you!

If you're in need of a new lip balm, give this little ball of sweetness a try!
