Balmy Addiction

When I was at the Symposium in Mesa last week, my friend Natalia pulled an egg-shaped object out of her purse, pulled the top half off of it, and rubbed the bottom half on her lips. I watched her do this, unsure if I wanted to know the answer, but asked anyway: "What on earth did you just put on?"

To the right of me sat my friend Tanya. Upon hearing my question, she reached with lightning-fast speed into her purse and pulled out an egg-shaped object of her own. "You mean this?" she asked.

Then a few other friends at the table excitedly announced that they had their own as well. Was I the only one who hadn't heard of these crazy things? They turned out to be lip balms by EOS. (The "EOS" stands for Evolution of Smooth, btw.)

When I returned to Omaha, the first thing I did (even before my suitcase was unpacked) was head straight to Walgreens and WalMart and Ulta, hunting for them. By golly, if all of my friends had them, then I was to have them as well.

Sophie was with me when I found them, and she suddenly exclaimed, "Those are the things I was telling you about a long time ago! My friends use them, and I want them too!"

Oh for Pete's sake.

So myself and Sophie and Breanna and Sabrina and my mom are now the proud owners of these crazy, cute, wonderful EOS lip balms.

They come in Summer Fruit (my favorite), Honeydew, Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Lemon, and who knows what else. Those are just the flavors I've found locally. But trust me, if there are others… they will be mine. (And Sophie's and Breanna's and Sabrina's and my mom's. We're all completely, hopelessly in love with them.)

Oh, and they have lotion as well!

Look how cute! It puts me in the mood to baby-talk to it.

Anyway, if you haven't tried these, you must! They're only $3.29 each, and as my mother put it, "they have staying power." I will warn you though, if you have chapped lips, the Sweet Mint may make them a bit tingly at first.

Here's the website if you'd like to take a look: Evolution of Smooth

Oh my goodness, I'm totally ordering that Vanilla Bean stick. Be still my heart! I love a good addiction. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Oh Paulette, you always make me laugh ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad to have made you an EOS addict. I love the little things !!! And look at those colors in your pictures, they are still more appealing. I have them all too, and I use a flavor or another depending on my mood that day ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Right… I eagerly clicked the “Where to buy” link on the EOS site, and was told that the closest place is about 4799km away from where I am in Italy, somewhere in Newfoundland (not kidding! it even came up with a map showing the hop across the North Atlantic).
    How depressing… (reaching for closest piece of chocolate, luckily only a few inches away) ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I never thought anything compared to my beloved Smashbox lip treatment! I think after a dozen or more tubes, you could say I pretty much was convinced there was no equal. Omg..the EOS is amazing, and I love the fact that it only contains good stuff. I am a lip balm junkie and have tried it all. Thanks, Paulette, for letting me know about it…l wonder if they have any good books? Lol!

  4. Oh my goodness, I have to get some of these! I’ve never heard of them, either. Thankfully, after doing a search on the EOS website, they are at every drug store and grocery store in Tucson! How did I miss this before? (Probably because I am always chasing down my boys while shopping!) Thanks for sharing!

  5. Mmmm…. I have the Summer Fruit, Lemon, Sweet Mint, and Honeydew (my fave!). My Ulta didnt have the Strawberry or the Tangerine. *sniff*
    I am now on a mission as well. Must.Have.NOW.

  6. I’ve never seen them either! Where did you end up finding yours? Also note… you can buy them on Amazon – which is probably where I will get mine when I order some other things tomorrow!

  7. Here in Houston EOS Lip Balm can be found at CVS, Walgreen’s & Kroger’s…..at least that is what a Google search indicates…I’ll have to go check….

  8. Okay so I will have to wait until I visit my sister in the U.S. before I can get my hands on some of these. They do have an online store but the shipping charges to Canada were more than I care to pay.
    Thanks for the tip!

  9. found the smooth mint and summer fruit at the local HEB grocery store in houston. left my summer fruit in the bathroom and when i came home the dog had found it, had it opened and bitten into and then left the opened pieces on the living room floor!
    i wasn’t a happy camper. sounds like some can be found at a variety of places here in houston!

  10. After seeing these lip smackin’ little cuties here on your blog, I was excited when I spotted 2 different flavours at a Walmart here in South-Western Ontario, Canada!
    They had them hanging next to a display of body wash in the middle aisle, so I bought the Summer Fruit (maybe I’ll get the Sweet Mint next time around.) And yes Paulette, your Mom is right; they do have staying power :^)
    Thanks for posting about these… if you hadn’t shown a pic, I probably wouldn’t have given them a second look.

  11. I haven’t found the lemon one yet..but I did find a three pack today at Hy-Vee grocery store. Passion fruit,sweet mint, and strawberry sorbet all together in a neat little silver cardboard pak! They are a little large to carry in your pocket but a lot easier to find in your purse! LOL!! I can’t believe how long they stay on! Totally going to give them to my duaghters in their Easter Baskets!!
