Big up to all the people who read and believe in ‘The Secret’. This has been one book that has literally changed my life and has given me everything I want. Be it the little things or the big ones.Probably that is how I managed to finally lay my hands on this egg shaped lil cutie so easily without any hassles. I’m a big fan of lip balms since I have perennially dry and chapped lips and I’ve always wanted to try eos lip balms.These balms are famous all over the world even more so when Hollywood celebs were photographed using it. Today I’m going to review Evolution Of Smooth (eos) Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in the flavour Summer Fruit.
eos lip balm in Summer Fruit is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Like the name suggests these lip balms come in a cute and smooth sphere/egg shaped packaging with a screw on lid. The screw cap fastens tightly and will not come off in your bag. Once you open the cap you can directly use it to apply to your lips so no fuss of applying it with your fingers or hygiene issues. The packaging is such an attention grabber and certainly the USP of the product. Everybody does a double take everytime I take it out to apply it
Texture & Scent
eos Sphere Lip Balms have a very soft and light texture which glides easily on the lips. I need to swipe it a few times to get adequate product on the lips as its not extremely buttery. It does not require much effort but something I thought was worth mentioning. The best part is that these are 95% organic, 100% natural and gluten free which is great for people allergic to it!
Summer Fruit contains Blueberry, Strawberry and Peach fruit extract and it smells exactly like it. A delectable fruity peachy scent that does not smell synthetic or too strong. It is the perfect mouth watering sweet fragrance that totally uplifts my senses. Only thing is that it makes me want to lick my lips from time to time :p These comes in 8 flavours(including summer fruit) and I can’t wait to lay my hands on all of them.
Color & Staying Power
The balm applies clear and gives a very soft shine to lips. It does not give a very glossy finish making it prefect to be applied under lipstick especially matte lipstick as it wont alter its finish much. Since it is not very heavy or buttery it does not exactly hydrate my lips but it does adequately moisturize my dry lips for a good amount of time!I did not need many reapplications throughout the day and it is one the best lip balms I’ve ever used. You just have to give it a try to experience its goodness!
Price & Availability
eos Smooth Sphere are super affordable but the biggest problem is the availability in India. Many have tried to procure this numerous times but I got it because of my friend who helped me out and let me buy many products through her friend in the USA. Thank u so much baby :*
However, you can get this through sasa.com which ships to India but that requires a credit card for payment and ofcourse carries the risk of international shipping.
