My Holy Grail Lip Balm: The EOS Smooth Sphere

Hey, hey, hey!! It's already the first of march? We are already 3 months into the year 2011! Summer is just around the corner and I miss our version of "winter" already. But what I won't miss is how the cold weather extremely chapped my lips! I tried good old petroleum jelly but it only hydrated my lips for a few minutes then it's dry again. Then I moved on to my trusty Carmex, but this time it failed me! Even tried Softlips, didn't work. Then I read somewhere that petroleum actually dries the lips more so I've been searching for petroleum free lip balm that is all natural and organic and paraben free so that my lips don't have the right to have a chemical reaction to anything!

So I shelled out ₱500+ for a Sensitive Lip Treatment from The Body Shop that just made my lips sticky and it tasted awful! So you see I was desperate for anything to work if I was shelling out that much money for lip balm! I did a bit more "researching" (i.e.: Google-ing) and found out about EOS lip balms.

EOS actually stands for Evolution of Smooth and if you ever see the lip balms you would understand why. The packaging is so CUTE!! It's shaped like an egg. That's about it. It's shaped like an egg and I can't believe that THAT is their main selling point. They call it the lip balm that makes you smile. Oh, it did make me smile but not because of the shape but because of the ingredients!

Taken from the EOS website:

Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one.
  • Long-lasting moisture
  • Shea butter & vitamin E
  • Smoothes on clear
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
  • Twist-off top
  • Gluten-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Petrolatum-free
  • Phthalate-free
eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

So you see how easy it was to love and want and need but again, It's not available locally!! So my stalking online sellers began. But it was so in demand in a matter of hours it get's sold out! Geez! I just resorted to begging for relatives and friends abroad to get me some but unfortunately no one is coming home so again I'm heartbroken..="(

My life went on, with ugly and painful chapped lips until one day my family and I hopped on a plane to Hong Kong. My first stop naturally was Sasa! Their cosmetics and skin care haven. And there all cute and bunched up in their jars was the spherical object that has been haunting me for months!
The EOS Lip Balms are in their Sasa Stores!!! WAAAh! I literally screamed and did a little dance of victory in finding the elusive EOS Lip Balm!! But I haven't tried it before will it work for me?

Three flavors were available at that time, the Honeysuckle Honeydew (My Fave!), Summer Fruit and Lemon Drop SPF 15. Good thing there were testers and I knew that I would love the Honeydew flavor, the summer fruit, still not sure but the Lemon Drop, I didn't want since I don't like citrus flavors for my lip balms. The original price is HK$60 (Approx. ₱335) but it was on sale for HK$35 (Approx. ₱195). Winner! =D

It was cold that time in HK so you could imagine my lips' state. I gave it a try and WOW! The texture is so creamy but light on the lips at the same time and my lips really absorbed the balm unlike other balms that just gloss over the lips. Also the curved shape of the balm itself is so unusual that I'm loving it! And best part was when I woke up, my lips are still soft and Yay! I could smile now without cracking my lips! So I dived into the EOS craze and never looked back. 
I decided to buy some as pasalubong but decided to keep it all to myself since I love it so much! Haha >:P

EOS Holiday Pack + 2 HK Haul

You wanna know how much I love it even more? When Valentines Day came, instead of the usual flowers from the BF, he got me the EOS Holiday Set instead! We ordered from Shirlina of Get Sophisticated but sadly she's on a break from selling now. The Holiday Set came with a Limited Edition flavor the Raspberry Pomegranate with Sweet Mint and a Honeysuckle Honeydew balm.

I'm addicted to this and I treat them as my children so I also let them go out and play.. =D

Here they are, climbing a tree.

And here they are whispering secrets.. =P

Okay I've officially lost my mind and it's because I'm totally crazy in love with this balm! So if ever you stumble upon this, do try it! Especially those located in the US they sell this for only US$3.29! (Approx. ₱143) Lucky you! =D To those going to HK, Buy this!! And the rest of us here in Manila, wait until an online seller carries this. Pre-order and reserve one stat! And save some for me! =D
