Pucker Up

Sunday, 11 November 2012

When I was offered an EOS lip balm and hand cream I couldn't say yes fast enough.

I had admired the cute lip balms from-a-far in Korea. I had no idea they were available here in the UK. 
Nor did I know anything about them if I’m to be honest – more a childish fascination with their quirky kinder-egg-esk design. And really, a little delight does come inside every pot.

The EOS lip balm comes in a variety of colours and flavours - and is 97% natural. The little egg contains a ball of tasty lip balm. 

I have been smothering my lips with the sweet mint lip balm. It is deliciously minty. I like it even more because there is no tingle. I am not a fan of lip balm tingle.  It really is sweet like candy. I did find myself licking it off now and then or craving soft mints. It's a good job you get a lot of product for your money.

 As a lip balm it’s pretty damn good – pretty being the operative word. It isn't heavy and soaks into the lips. There was no sticky residue just minty freshness.

EOS also do a few hand creams - in a rather cool pebble design.

The pebble shaped cucumber hand cream was the matching colour to my minty balm - so I've had both in my handbag. The small ergonomic packaging makes it ideal for your bag. The smell was fresh and clean – only to be expected of cucumber scent. The hand cream was very light and not greasy. Personally, I get pretty dry hands and like a richer hand cream especially in the winter - so I did keep applying this one. 

The EOS range can be bought in the UK from Cocktail Cosmetics – a funky independent online cosmetic shop. The website is full of beauty indulgences.

I think I’m definitely going to be stocking up on the EOS lip balms for the mistletoe seasons.. mwah..
