EOS: Coconut Milk Lip Balm

This is another highly celebrity endorsed product that I have been wanting to review for the longest time…

I finally have been able to because it’s Winter, and in Winter, we all need a celebrity endorsed sphere lip balm which costs £6 but is so small that that you can eat it in less than one mouth full (not that you would because it goes on the lips not inside them). Am I right?

I purchased EOS‘ (Evolution of Smooth) Coconut Milk. I’m not going to lie to you, the only other reason I bought it (other than wanting to see what all the fuss was about) was that it claims to be Organic. I love Organic produce, I try to use as much Organic things as possible, especially in my meals.

Get noticed with visibly softer lips. Nourish your lips and enjoy the delicious flavor of this coconut milk lip balm!

The packaging of EOS Lip Balm sphere? As small as it is, there’s no denying it’s unique, and cute. The Coconut Milk one came in a pale pink sphere which was sweet.

The scent? Delicious. Like Coconut Milk which is expected because I purchased a Coconut Milk lip balm… 😂 Imagine if it came smelling like Chicken. I’d send it back or deliver it to the ‘Pengest Munch’ and self-titled: ‘Chicken Connoisseur’ to review! It’s hardly “roadman” worthy, but it’ll do…

Taste? 😋 I wanted to eat it in one sitting. But, the cost, along with the fact that it’ll never fill me up, had me abstaining!

The result? Your bog standard lip balm. Yes, the ingredients – as far as I know – are organic, but the results are not extra-terrestrial or noticeable. What I mean is, no one has stopped me in the street to tell me that my lips look “Organic”. My friends don’t say: “Oh wow! Your lips felt a special kind of Organic on my cheeks, you wearing EOS?” when I go to give them a little peck. I’m not denying that my lips didn’t feel soft afterwards, but isn’t that the main purpose of a lip balm? You wouldn’t buy a lip balm if it said it’ll make your lips dry and coarse, would you?

Price? LOL. Just, LOL. (and I’m not talking Miley Cyrus’ – who has endorsed EOS on her Insta – film). £6 for a tiny pot of lip balm which hydrated as much as a Vaseline tin would. Do the maths!

Is it work six “squids”? If it weren’t for its “organic” claim, I’d have said no. It’s too small and doesn’t hydrate my lips any more than a usual lip balm that I could get for a pound or two. Vaseline is cost-effective and works better. But, then, you’re not buying into a celebrity endorsed product when you purchase a tin of petroleum jelly. 😂

The moral of this post is: just ’cause it’s endorsed, that doesn’t mean that it’s an exceptional product for its price… Although, as I said, I suppose you’re buying into the brand and Organic produce which makes up for it, I suppose…

Look – it works, I just expected a little more from it. Remember, celebrities most probably don’t use this every day! Don’t forget that they have enough money to get laser lip treatments (if such things exist) if they wanted!
