I've always seen these brightly colored little spheres at the drugstore, but I passed them by without a second thought. Upon closer examination, I discovered they were...lip balm?! Being the lip balm fanatic that I am, I couldn't believe I hadn't tried these out sooner. The flavors - lemon drop, summer fruit, honeysuckle honeydew, and sweet mint - all looked delicious, but I went with the sunny yellow lemon drop. According to the website, they also come in medicated tangerine, but I didn't see that at the Walgreens I went to.
The eos smooth sphere is, well, a smooth sphere. The outside is slightly rubberized for grip, and it has a flat bottom so it won't roll around everywhere. The top has eos carved into it, and there is a small dent in the middle so you can twist the top half off. It's a cute, simple little sphere.
I eagerly twisted the cap open and found a sphere of balm that protruded from the bottom half. At first, I tried to use it like a normal chapstick, but I found that it was too wide and it was awkward to try and apply it to one lip each. It was much easier to just smooth the whole thing onto both of my lips...simple and convenient!
The glide was just amazing. It was the perfect texture - not waxy at all, smooth and buttery. I loved how it wasn't too thick and heavy, but not so light that I had to keep reapplying it. However, it just tasted so good I wanted to keep applying the stuff!
Lemon is my favorite flavor for mostly anything, and this definitely did not disappoint. The balm smelled and tasted just like lemon cookies. I haven't tried any of the other flavors, but I want to try the sweet mint. What I liked about the scent was that it wasn't overpowering or too sweet.
This has got to be one of my new favorite lip balms. I love love love the texture and flavor, and my lips are super moisturized and smooth. It also contains Vitamin E and shea butter, as well as SPF 15! The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the packaging. While the sphere is innovative and cute, it won't exactly fit in your pocket, and the rubberized plastic tends to pick up dust.
Nevertheless, I would recommend this in a heartbeat! It's got everything down pat, and the selection of yummy flavors has got me wanting to try them all. Pick one up at Walgreens or Target today!
