Description: This EOS lip balm is 95% organic and paraben and petrolatum free; its ingredients include shea butter, beeswax, coconut and jojoba oils and more. The lip balm itself is an thick oval shape and is packed inside something that almost resembles an egg shape with a flat bottom (so it can sit upright). The outer egg twists apart (it took Christine a while to figure this out - she thought you had to pull it apart at first!) to reveal the lip balm inside.
You may be unaware of this, but I do have an addiction to lip balm. Every single day at least once an hour I'm applying lip balm. In all this experience I have gone through seemingly hundreds of brands, flavors, and shapes, but this cute and fun little EOS egg has rolled its way into my top five of all time.
Currently I own five different flavors, but three seem to have temporarily wandered off...however I currently have the sweet mint and strawberry sorbet flavors on hand! Out of all the flavors I do have to say I like the mint the best because it has a sweet tang to it which lingers on your lips for hours after application.
And, although I love the flavors of these eggs, the shape is my favorite thing because after so many application the product becomes molded into the shape of your lips and the rounded shape means there are no edges to the balm. However similar to most brands I've used, this does moisturize your lips, but it doesn't have a long lasting effect.
I have the summer fruit flavor and I like it - it tastes like a watermelon flavor to me. And I'm glad it's paraben/petrolatum free. It seems to go on quite smoothly and feels light on your lips. But, I find myself reapplying it every twenty minutes or less! The shape seems more like a conversation starter than anything else to me - it is quite bulky which makes it difficult to carry around in your jeans pocket for example (which is where I usually carry my lip balm products!). I think this will end up being a product I keep lying around the house (on my nightstand, on my desk, etc) rather than carrying it with me in my purse or pocket.
So, I think in the end the balm itself could be better, but the shape/packaging is attractive though not necessarily the most functional. Plus maybe I'm just doing something wrong, but often times it will get on my cheeks a bit when I'm putting it on my lips because it is so huge! And, just so you all have it, I'll include a photo of the ingredients here (I bought mine in Canada so the ingredients are in French and English!) so you can see them.
