Protect Your Lips All Winter Long

Posted on Nov 10, 2013 by No Comments

I’m normally a fan of tinted lip balm or lip gloss, but my regular go-to products don’t prevent chapped lips during the winter months. So, when I had a chance to try the new eos medicated tangerine lip balm, I was curious to see if it would help my chapped lips.

The new eos lip balm is 95% natural and made with vitamins C & E, shea butter, and jojoba oil to pamper your lips. It offers antibacterial protection to prevent contamination and is petroleum, phthalate, and paraben free.

The tangerine smell is pleasant, but not overpowering. I like that the lip balm doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on my lips. It didn’t sting my severely chapped lips when I applied it either, which has been a problem with other medicated lip products I’ve used in the past. After a few days of regular use, my lips did feel much better.

I had always hesitated to try eos lip balm in the past because I thought the packaging seemed kind of weird. But, I’m chronically losing my lip balm and the egg shaped packaging seems easier for me to keep track of in my purse for some reason.

If you’re looking for something to give your kids when their lips get chapped, the unique packaging makes this a hit with children as well. My son also suffers from chapped lips in the winter months, so I’ve picked up one for him to use.

Eos lip balm sells for $3.29 and can be found at Target or Rite Aid Stores nationwide. You can also buy the product directly from their website.
