The Haul of Lipbalms

Good morning and good evening everyone how's your week so far? enjoying summer? or hating the heat? It's about 24 degrees here in Vancouver, not bad tho. It's a perfect time for biking, jogging, running, and walking near the sea wall.

My second package arrived in the mail last night and I was tweeting about them- ME PLEASE) I'm going to be sharing them to you. I got my EOS lip balms and a Smith's Rosebud Salve lip balm as well.

EOS(Evolution of Smooth) lip balm smooth sphere.

These egg-shaped lip balms are everywhere these days. I got them last night and immediately opened them up and applied them on my lips before I slept last night. They are hands- free and 100% organic. This means that you don't have to worry about digging your hands in the pot and when you do that you get a lot of germs. These lip balms also contains Jojaba oil and Shea butter which means that it helps moisturize your lips. Shea butter is a yellowish or ivory-colored natural fat that comes from seed of the African Shea Tree and it is widely used, especially with cosmetics. This lip balm also contains Vitamin E which is antioxidant and this helps sooth your lips. Another great thins about this lip balm is that it was not tested on animals.

Packaging- The cutest packaging ever. I wish all lip balms are egg-shaped now. These are twist off top and it has a flat surface underneath so your balm will be able to stand on its own. These lip balms are clear and smells really good. These lip balms are for lazy people like me because you just need to hold your lips in a natural position and with just one sweep the large balm quickly covers both lips at once.

The product- EXCELLENT. They smell really good and it really soothes and moisturizes the lips. They come in 4 flavours I believe- Sweet Mint,Honeydew Honeysuckle, Summer Fruit, Lemon drop. All contains SPF 15. I bought mine at I ordered them on July 10- and it arrived July19. This company offers shipping internationally, but it is $9.99 flat rate when shipped in Canada.They only offer 3 flavors and I got all 3- Sweet Mint, Honeydew Honeysuckle, and Summer Fruit. They retail for about 4.99 and I promise they are worth every penny.

Recommend? Definitely! 100% yes. Get yours today. Pucker up those lips and smile.If you live in the US, then you are lucky because you can get the EOS lip balms at Walgreens, Rite Aid and Target.

From L-R: Summer Fruit, Sweet Mint, and Honeydew Honeysuckle

Smith's Rosebud Salve:

Packaging- Tin can and you need to use your fingers to apply this rose- scented balm

Product- Well it has a strong rose scent to it. If you do not want the smell of roses stay out from this product. It has a slight color when applied to your lips. This product retails for $5.59 also at The people behind this invention claims that this product is really hard to find and that it" has been lauded by fashion magazines, make-up artists, and celebrities as their number one preferred lip balm. In addition to being a wonderful lip moisturizer, natural-looking lip gloss and lipstick base, it is still a family favorite to aid in the relief of chapped and dry skin, blemishes, diaper rash, and detergent burns.?

Recommend- Yes to those who loves the scent of roses, and no to those who do not like the smell of roses. Honestly, this is just rose-scented petroleum jelly/ Vaseline. I will still be using this if I want a hint of color on my lips.

Will you be getting the EOS? the Rosebud Salve? or both?

Hug, Kim
