Talking about lip balm is akin to discussing politics. There will be arguments, some sighs, random head shaking, and overall no consensus. For some reason, lip balm choice is deeply personal and always sparks debate (seriously, just tell someone that their brand lip balm didn’t work for you and watch the dispute unfold). In the case of Eos, people either hate it or love it. I’m on the “love” side and am a big proponent of all Eos products.
Eos recently released two Visibly Soft lip balms that feature a swirl, candy pattern in blue and pink - the pink Eos has a Coconut Milk flavor and the blue Eos has a Vanilla Mint flavor. I purchased the pink Eos because I do not like to use balms that contain mint as mint is often irritating for sensitive skin.
Eos Visiblys Soft Coconut Milk performs as good, if not better, than the regular line of Eos balms (and bonus points for the adorable packaging). This Eos Coconut Milk balm is enriched with natural conditioning oils, moisturizing shea butter, and nourishing Vitamins C and E. Like all other Eos products, Coconut Milk is petrolatum-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and phthalate-free. Scent wise, Eos balms do not have a strong fragrance and due to the natural ingredients, any scent that is present is not overtly powerful (this Visibly Soft balm has a slight scent of coconut).
Because of the added water and sodium hyalruronate ingridients, the Visibly Soft balms apply smoother and feel more emollient - overall, I find that Coconut Milk is also longer lasting and provides sustained moisture for at least three hours.
My purse is full of these small Eos spheres so I obviously love the product. Eos works for me as it is nourishing without being drying, irritating, or too waxy. While some may dislike the packaging, I find it hygienic and easy to carry (plus, it’s easy to find in my black-hole of a purse). I use Eos with other lip products and lipsticks and have had only positive experiences with Eos products.
Priced at an affordable $3.50, Visibly Soft Coconut Milk and Vanilla Mint are available for purchase at Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, and Target (also available online if difficult to locate). And with the last of the political puns, I fully endorse Eos balms for everyone and anyone!
Stay Pretty, Miranda M.
