Balm for my soul

Would I recommend these balms? Probably not. There are cheaper products that are far better in terms of moisturising power. But if you are a sucker for cute shapes and organic ingredients you might as well get one, just for fun.
-natural and organic
-cute packaging
-nice smell
-sweet taste
-does not provide enough moisture

extremely useful review

I am not a huge fan of lip products as my lips rarely get dry and chapped but I just could not resist these cute little spheres of lip balm. These balms are free from mineral oils, parabens and other nasties and are produced in the USA from ingredients that are 95% certified organic. According to Evolution of Smooth website the balms come in seven different flavours/scents: Pomegranate Raspberry, Summer Fruit, Sweet Mint, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Tangerine and Lemon Drops. Once in a while you can find limited editions of Smooth Sphere Lip Balms in other funky flavours. Some of the balms have extra functions added to them, for example Lemon Drop has Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Depending on a flavour, the texture and the moisturising power of the balms varies. I’ve got Honeysuckle Honeydew and Medicated Tangerine and have very different experiences with both of them.

Honeysuckle Honeydew:

Honeysuckle Honeydew is enclosed in a pale-green rubbery sphere. The balm itself looks beige in the package but applies clear on the lips. It has a faint smell of melon with slight herbal undertones. Stevia extract gives this balm a mild sweet taste. Overall, both the taste and the smell of the balm are very pleasant. However applying this is a little tricky, the texture of the balm is hard and very waxy and it does not exactly glide on the lips as the packaging promises. Once on the lips it absorbs fast. The moisturising power of the balm is weak; I don't have the feeling that it actually does something for my lips.

Ingredients are as follows:
Olive Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Natural Flavour (Aroma), Shea Butter, Stevia Leaf/Stem Extract, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Raspberry Leaf Extract, Linalool.

Medicated Tangerine:

This one comes in an orange sphere. The balm itself is white but looks clear on the lips. It has a faint pleasant smell of tangerine peels and has a slightly sweet taste, without being cloying. Unlike the Honeysuckle Honeydew this one has a softer and creamier texture. It applies on the lips nicely and makes them very smooth, making this balm perfect as a lipstick primer. This balm is designed to treat various lip condition such as cold sores, and is filled with anti-bacterial components. Some of the ingredients of this balm are well-known skin irritants, so beware if you have sensitive skin. After applying it on my lips this balm gives me a slight tingling sensation but so far I am yet to experience any irritation from it.

Ingredients are as follows:
Jojoba Seed Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Flavor (Aroma), Zinc Oxide, Leaf/Stem Extract, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Acai Fruit Extract, Ginger Root Extract, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Vitamin C, Benzyl Benzoate, Citral, Geraniol , Limonene, Linalool.


As I have mentioned before, these little colourful spheres are incredibly cute. The balm has a screw cap, which prevents it from opening inside my bag and spoiling my belongings. Its chunky and round shape makes this balm easy to find in the bag without looking. I find the round shape of the balm very ergonomic. There is no need to stick my fingers inside the jar, like with some other lip balms and the rubbery surface of the balm packaging prevents it from slipping off my fingers. Also, traditional tube-style balms have a tendency to break off. This does not happen with this balm.
On the other hand some aspects of this packaging drive me nuts. The rubbery spheres pick up dirt like no other; this does not look very appealing. Also due to the large size of the spheres they don’t fit inside small clutches and cosmetic cases. As well as that, I sometimes wonder if it is OK for a grown-up woman to carry around a lip balm that looks like a toddler’s toy, but I guess it is a matter of preferences.

Personal comments:

These balms are great if you don’t want to put any nasty chemicals in your body. They feel and taste great so if you are like me and hate feeling anything foreign on your lips. They have non-sticky texture and absorb easily, so you can apply the balm before kissing your partner. I am very prone to allergic reactions and some lip products trigger some nasty reaction such as throat swelling. I am glad to say that this has never happened with this balm.
