Organic lip balm by Evolution of Smooth - review by Reesa

Fantastic Stuff!

I love this stuff. It's easy to apply, the container is well designed, and it tastes good. It gets top marks from me!
Yummy, Good texture, Easy to apply
Lemon flavor is entirely sweet - no tartness

I picked some of this up a few months ago on a whim. I'd never seen a ball shaped lip balm container before, and I was curious. Man, I'm glad I did. I love this stuff to death.

I have this lip balm in two flavors: mint and lemon. Both flavors are mild but sweet, which is nice. I often find that lip balms are overwhelmingly strong so you can't help but taste the flavor all day long no matter what you do. These EOS ones are not like that. They have a hint of flavor, and it's evident if you lick your lips, but you're not going to find yourself smelling nothing but mint or lemon every time you breathe in or find the flavors of your food affected by them. The sweetness is also very nice. It doesn't taste of artificial sweeteners and the flavors seem very natural. The lemon doesn't have a hint of tartness to it, however, so if that's what you're looking for I'd steer away.

I worried when I picked these up that the shape of the lip balm would make it smear far beyond the confines of my lips, but I found that worry to be in vain. The half circle actually means that no matter what part you're spreading on your lips, the rest of the mass is curved away from you, which gives you a lot more precision of application than one might expect from such a large container.

Finally, the container itself is very well designed. I tend to drop lip balm into my purse and carry it around for months, during which time dirt and hairs and such generally migrate onto the outside of the container and into the spiral seal on the lid. That's just gross, and it means that every so often I have to do a mass dumping of lip balm because I can't imagine putting something that comes out of that kind of container onto my lips. For some reason, however, the EOS doesn't seem to hold on to the dirt. It just rolls off the round shell. I've been carrying these around since some time this past spring through temperatures up to 120 or so and even during the hottest days of summer the lip balm didn't melt and the dirt didn't start to stick. The ball is also very easy to open up thanks to indents for the fingers, and it has a flat bottom so it stands up nicely without rolling away.

The lip balm itself is a nice weight. It's not too greasy or heavy but it still coats the lips enough to help moisturize and refresh.

I can't wait to try the other flavors!
