Very Vanilla, With A Hint Of Something Else

Fans of vanilla will really enjoy this lip balm from EOS. I suppose fans of mint and pomegranate raspberry may as well, but I'm here to tell you about the vanilla one. It goes on nicely, with just a hint of roughness, and lasts a decently long time if you can keep from eating it off your lips.
Scent, Neat tube, Goes on nicely
Price, Some may not like the slight gritty feeling

What is this, and what can it do for me?

This is a nifty little lip balm, and it can provide a nice set of smooth lips for you.

What does the packaging look like?

The tube itself is about 2 3/4" tall at its tallest and about 3" around. It's bigger than your "standard" chapstick sized tube, but should still fit in most pockets easily. The tube itself is a very sturdy and solidly opaque plastic. Unlike most tubes of lip balm where the cap removes, this one the tube removes. It's actually pretty neat. Before you can start using it though, you'll have to remove the protective plastic wrap on it.

Neat, what are the ingredients?

The ingredients read as Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax (Cire D’abeille)*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extract*, Tocopherol, Limonene*, Linalool*. The * denotes an organic ingredient.

What does it smell or taste like?

You can get it in three different scents; vanilla, pomegranate raspberry, and mint. I got mine in the vanilla and it's very vanilla. It's hard for me to describe the specific scent though. Those who aren't fond of sweet vanillas aren't going to like this at all either. To me, there's a hint of something behind the vanilla that makes the scent more alluring, although I can't quite put my finger on what it is. It doesn't really have much of a taste, but if I put it on and drink from a glass or a bottle of water and then take another sip later I can still smell it and taste it faintly.

Ok it smells good, but how well does it work?

That's really going to depend on the needs of your lips. I find myself reapplying it on a fairly regular basis, but I also end up chewing it off most of the time. To me it's no better or worse than most of the other tube balms out there, but I prefer the scent to most others. It glides on smoothly, but with a hint of grit in there as well. Nothing that most people will mind, but if you need absolute super smooth application, you might want to go with something else.

Gotcha. Got any pictures?

Of course I do! I've got one of it fully extended to show you how much comes in it right off the bat, one of the tube on its own, and one of it with the Cocoa Nostra lip balm and the round EOS balm for size comparison.

The scent is just wonderful and I love having it around. I ended up with quite a collection of lip balms and they live pretty much everywhere I go. There's some in my purse, at my computer desk, in almost every jacket, on my nightstand, and in every other room I spend any real time in. This is one of my favorite scented ones, but then again I love almost everything vanilla. I think it's a bit expensive from here, but if you can find in the stores for cheaper then absolutely go for it.
