EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm

Mint Your Lips Might Enjoy!

I don’t know what it is about these little guys (probably the packaging), but whenever I see one I say, “I want that!”  Yup, in that little-kid voice.  EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm (≈ $2.99 USD for 0.25 oz./7 g.) has a peppermint scent and a sugary, peppermint taste.  It is a solid balm that has a bit of a tacky feel on the lips.  Please note this particular flavor does give your lips a cold feeling that lasts about 15 minutes.  I do not find it irritating (I actually really like it!), but those with sensitive lips may feel a burning sensation.  

What I have noticed about this product is it does not instantly heal dry, cracked lips.  What it does do is preserve whatever amount of moisture your lips currently have.  Once the product wears off, your lips will go back to the state they were in prior to use.  When applied at night, I can still feel the balm on my lips the next morning – after eight hours of rest.  Over time, it will help your lips feel softer/smoother, but in my experience, this works best when used in conjunction with a lip scrub.

Part of the appeal of these is their packaging.  Their spherical shape and pastel colors are reminiscent of Easter eggs. Because of the round shape of the balm itself, you can cover both of your lips at the same time.  If you like to carry your lips balm in you pocket (like I do), then the packaging is rather unpractical.  If you are wanting slimmer packaging, this flavor does come in a “smooth stick” form.

All of EOS lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, as well as Gluten, Paraben, Petrolatum, and Phthalate free!  The only concerning ingredients are the Mentha Piperita Oil (peppermint oil) and the Linalool (alcohol extracted from flowers and spice plants), which can irritate skin.  The linalool is the last ingredient on the list, so the minute amount of it should not really be a problem, but it is important to be informed.  

I am still trying to figure out if I, personally, like this, or still think it is overrated.  It is not a bad product, but it certainly is not my favorite.
