EOS has a new product exciting product for the lip balm lovers! EOS Crystal Lip Balm is a waxless lip treat blended from five essential oils for maximum hydration (mapleholistics.com). These oils include avocado oil, coconut oil, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and castor oil. The waxless feature ensures a transparent, colorless application, which is a different feature from the original EOS product. EOS Crystal Lip Balm is available at Ulta, as well as your local drug store including Walgreens and CVS. It is also available in two favors, Hibachis Peach and Vanilla Orchid. The scent is very intense and can be smelled even through the packaging. When unpackaged this lip balm is stored in a triangular shaped container, very different than the circular packaging of the original. The lip balm is clear in appearances and when applied feels oily and rich. It gets into the dry crevices of parched lips without breaking off in chunks because of the high moisture content. With the moisture comes some stickiness, but the richness makes up for it.
There have been some reviews that EOS Crystal Lip Balm may come off in chunks or crack with frequent application, but if the product is taken care and with limited travel the probably of that happening is reduced. Even after an extended period of wear on the lips for 45 minutes with eating and drinking, EOS Crystal Lip Balm still stays on. It is also very affordable at around five dollars, depending on the purchase location.
