EOS Berry Blossom Lotion & Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

I was sent two eos (evolution of smooth) products to review:
berry blossom hand lotion & vanilla mint visibly soft lip balm sphere. Below are my thoughts.



The berry blossom hand lotion ($1.99) by eos, is shaped like a flattened egg and fits in the palm of your hand. I like that the packaging is not bulky or heavy. I wear a lot of crossbody bags, so this easily fits into smaller purses, pockets and overall doesn't take up much space. The scent (while in the container) is like strawberries & cream! It's a fresh scent! The container, despite being hard IS easily squeezable. Squeeze it once and enough product comes out. The lotion is creamy and absorbs into the skin. Your hands will feel super soft after using this lotion. This lotion's berry scent quickly dissipates once applied, and turns into a blossom scent (faint floral scent). It's very pleasant. What level of moisture are you looking for? This moisturizes...but it's light. My dry hands quickly absorbed the first application. I had to apply two more times for better moisture. This lotion is non-sticky and non-greasy. It's fast absorbing. So overall, it's truly a decent hand cream. I give it a sweet rating. It is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, 90% natural, paraben & gluten free and contains no animal by-products. BTW, how do you like my cupcake pocket notebook? HaHaHa I bought it for only  a dollar at Michaels Craft Store. I always need something to jot notes down.

The eos vanilla mint visibly soft lip balm sphere ($3.29) has conditioning oils, shea butter and vitamins C & E. The scent reminds me of shortbread cookies. This lip balm moisturizes, but it still has a waxy feel to it. I've reviewed eos lip balms before and still feel the same way. A lot of people LOVE their lip balms, but I prefer Fresh, Origins & Avon stick lip balms. I also got this Hello Kitty tin, with mints in them at Michaels Craft Store.

Nice review Kim! I'm not a fan of the eos lip balms either. I've been tempted by that one though because the packaging is cute ha ha. I did try the lotion and it was okay. I like the packaging and it's nice for my purse like you said!

I have an EOS lip balm in Coconut Milk and you're right it is nothing to write home about but still decent for the price.

Oooh, I've been curious about the EOS lotions! I personally love the lip balms, haha, so I want to try their other products as well. Great review Kim!

I picked up the EOS Lipbalm on a holiday as we can't get them here in Aus and although they're in quite cute packaging and everything it wasn't anything to write home about! Haha I haven't seen the Hand Cream before though- interesting!

Hey Kim! I'm just back from holiday and have A LOT of catching up to do - first things first, loving the new look! Swit swoo, it looks great. Secondly, I was just whelmed when I tried the eos balm too - never knew they did lotion!

oomph. said...

ooh, i was curious about their hand lotion. glad to hear it's good...and cheap! and, as cute as they are, the lip balms aren't my favorite.

Dale Janée said...

I know what you mean about EOS - I love the shape and colors/flavors etc but I always end up using different chapsticks when it really comes down to keeping my lips moisturized. They are bittersweet for me too. :) Also, love the little cupcake notebook, my mom always buys those note cards and goodies at Michaels for me. They are such a good deal! :)

Mica T said...

Oh they have such interesting packaging! :)

I'd heard about the lip balms (probably from your blog too Kim!) but I didn't know they did moisturiser too.

Kim, Id love to try the hand lotion most, the packaging is so cute and I see it perfect to carry in the bag. Love the HK tin, I was wondering what there was inside as saw on IG! xo

Emmylou said...

Im a big fan of EOS balms, but you're right....Fresh beats them all!

And I love your Michael's haul too, Kim:D

I have heard about this brand before and I'm impressed on packagings of these products :) And this hand lotion looks interesting and it's great to hear that it works :)

Yeah, I think I'll stick with my Jack Black lip balm. It's too perfect to take any chances. The lotion might get a try at some point though. Cute Hello Kitty tin!

I love Hello Kitty! So cute.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I wanted to like the eos lipbalm cause of the cute packaging but like you I also found the formula to be too waxy. From your description of the hand cream I don't think it would be moisturizing enough for me either. Thanks for the honest reviews Kim!

The package is adorable!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Surprisingly I don't mind EOS lip balm, I have one and it's been okay for me. I agree it's a little waxy but it made my lips feel comfortable. I like the sound of the hand cream, Kim. I've seen it but never picked it up to try. My current hand cream is about to run out so will pick this up next to try.

I'd love to try the EOS hand cream - the container is quite smart.
As for the lip balm, I own one a friend gave to me, its ok - but i have to agree it is a bit waxy.

Loove the packaging! They look so adorable, like toys! x

Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

Thanks for the honest review. I've heard of the lip balm but have never tried it. I like the cute packaging since I also carry cross body bags, so anything small and handy is important, but if it's not amazing, I'll pass. I already have enough lip balms and moisturizers :)

Serena Macari said...

I'm a huge fan of the Eos lip balms... Mainly because of the shape (tragic I know) as I can always find it in my giant handbag...

I really want to try the hand creams but the only place I can find it here in Ireland is Urban Outfitters, who are selling it for waaaaay more than these prices :(

I've been so curious about the hand creams. I did try one of the lip balms, but it was just okay. Like you said, there are lip balms that I like better. I'll have to check out these hand creams, though.

Another great review, Kim! I have mixed feelings about lip products that you have to use your finger to apply, but I think the lotion could be great for travelling - and the price is perfect!

I have had the EOS balm and it is so wonderful. My Mom even had the lemon scent one and loved it. I think they are so fun too to carry in a purse and make a great stocking stuffer! Hope you are doing well !!

I have tried the EOS lip balms too. The flavours are amazing. But the Avon lip balms work best for me. The lotion looks functional too.

Miss Venus Fury said...

Gosh, I absolutely love EOS lip balms, I keep a strawberry one next to my bed at all times as I have very dry lips. I do find them hard to get my hands on though. Since they don't actually sell them in Australia, I usually get one of my friends in Florida to post me a few every time I run out. I didn't realize they came in such interesting flavors though, that vanilla mint one sounds amazing and the packaging is super cute as well (I have a bit of a thing for pastels). I would love to know if they have any other swirly ones in that range so I can get my friend to send me a few to try! I usually just get the strawberry one :)

I am the one who love EOS lipbalms. But my sister for example doesn't like them at all. They are too heavy for her. Well, I like them and I am always happy when she sends them to me, as they are not available in my country. I have seen the handcream before but I have never used it. I'd love to try it!

I saw these lipglosses on some other blogs as well...and I mean how can someone resist something that is this cute!!! just keeping it in my purse would make me happy...and Hello Kitty...I would buy almost anything with her print/image/ shape:)

Diva Desle said...

I like eos lipbalms. I use them at night before I go to bed. The scent is always amazing.

Tina Bradley said...

That lotion sounds fab, and I adore the fact the container fits well in a smaller handbag! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Too bad about the waxy feel! I kinda dig the sphere shaped lip balm!

Kizzy Von Doll said...

Can you tell I'm catching up yet!?! Hello it's me again, haha!! I love your honest reviews Kim, I always know you're not going to tell me something is great when it isn't. These are super cute, shame about the waxy feel, I hate that!! Love the containers :)) xx
