Organic lip balm by Evolution of Smooth - review by Jul!a

The Only Time It's Ok To Make Duck Face

Due to the unique shape of this item, it can be hard to apply it to just one lip at a time. But, if you pucker up and make a duck face you can easily hit both lips at once; saving you time and simultaneously giving you an excuse to make duck face.

What is this, and what is it going to do for me?

This is a funky little lip balm, and it's going to give you nice lips; perfect for kissing or just being sexily moisturized.

Cool! What's the packaging like?

This little egg shaped container comes wrapped in plastic for protection. The plastic has the ingredients and all of that fun stuff on there as well. It's short at only 2" tall, but it's about 5" around so it's probably not the best choice to stuff in your pocket. However, it will fit easily in a purse.

So just what are the ingredients?

The ingredients are listed as Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax (Cire D’abeille)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Natural Flavor, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extractt*, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract*, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Extract*, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract*, Linalool*. The * denotes an organic ingredient.

Can you tell me a little more about the balm and the packaging?

Sure thing! The egg-like shape is not only interesting, but also makes it easy to hold on to. If the round shape scares you a bit, the flat spots for your thumbs should help some too. The top have twists off and back on with a satisfying click sound to let you know it's really secure. The balm itself is a round shape which a lot of people are probably going to find a bit awkward, at least at first. I've found the best way to apply it is to make a duck face and hit both lips at once. Once you wear it down a bit you can apply it to just one lip or the other a bit more easily, although at that point you may just be used to the shape.

What's it smell like, or taste like?

You can get this one in a few different scents: sweet mint, honeysuckle, lemon, summer fruit, strawberry sorbet, and tangerine. I got this particular one in the honeysuckle scent, and I think it's just heavenly. I've passed it around my friends and haven't had a single person say anything other than "oh my that smells delicious." It smells similar to the honeysuckle in the Ember candle that I have, which gave me the ability to figure out exactly what honeysuckle smells like, and it's very good. It is a bit sweet though, so anybody who doesn't like sweet smelling things probably won't like this either. There's not much of a taste when you lick your lips, but it is there very subtly.

How does it go on, and how well does it work?

Similar to the other EOS balm I have, this one goes on smoothly but does have a slight grit feeling to it. Nothing that's ever bothered me, but I don't mind the slight texture. I've been able to go hours between reapplications, and I've had to reapply after only about 20 minutes. It depends on how thirsty my lips are and what I've been doing since I last applied it.

Are there any pictures?

I sure do! I have a closeup of the balm itself, one with the lid, and one with the Cocoa Nostra lip balm and the tube EOS balm for size comparison.

This little guy lives in my purse, and I even pick it over my super awesome Strawberry Skittles chapstick all the time. It's not the best for shoving in a pocket, at least not a tight pocket, but it's quite content to live in my purse so I'm happy with that. I do think it's a bit pricey from here, but I'd honestly buy it from here again because I know I can get all of the different scents from here.
Follow-up commentary
I still have this exact one actually. It got lost in a purse and is now in my jacket pocket slowly being finished. I see them in stores all the time and definitely recommend any of the EOS lip balls to anybody who likes a smooth, fruity balm that lasts a long time.
