So excited to do my first product review at Books à la Mode! Previously, I did adult product reviews at my product review blog, but I've since deleted that one.
I'll do little unofficial product reviews here and there from now on right at this blog!
Evolution of Smooth, or EoS, is one of my favorite lip balm brands; I was ecstatic to hear Edenfantasys now carries a wide range of its products in its cosmetics inventory!
What I absolutely love about the brand is that is uses all-natural, organic (paraben-free) ingredients and eco-friendly packaging. This stuff is not only good for your lips and skin, but good for the environment too.
I've tried the lip balms in Summer Fruit and Lemon Drop, the latter of which has SPF15 — great sunscreen for lips! Both smell and taste absolutely delicious and moisturize my lips really well. I didn't like them at first because they felt a little sticky, leaving a waxy layer on my lips. Felt kind of drying as well, not terrible, but not something I was fond of. Then I started using the balm everyday and felt a noticeable difference to the texture of my lips. The little dry flakes disappeared, and I didn't have to reapply constantly because the initial 'waxiness' actually made the product substantial.
