Well wouldn’t you just know it.. another lip balm – they’re my weakness because I actually NEED them and when I don’t have one with me I can absolutely justify buying a new one. Luckily this was nothing to justify at all as it came in my Boots Advent Calender last Christmas and it was one of my more exciting doors. I was already fan of the EOS balms having picked up the delicious Sweet Mint while I was in the US so I was interested to try these similar looking things that hit our shores last year and this coconut flavour did not disappoint. I’ve seen rounded versions of these recently and to be honest I don’t know why they didn’t just launch with those because the conical balm in this square packaging is a little tricky to work with.. I kind of assumed EOS had some kind of patent on the sphere but they must not have. Another niggle is that given the wide surface you’re always going to be left with a lot of balm you can’t easily apply once the surface has worn away, you could scoop it out I suppose but chances are it will be wasted – this is the same with the EOS though, thought I’d mention.
Overall they’re a nice lip balm, come in a good variety of ‘flavours’ and the packaging is cute albeit a little gimmicky and wastful.
