EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)
I think that we really have a false sense of the seasons living in Los Angeles. The weather here really is temperate year round, and it is not at all unusual to wear what is considered spring and summer clothing during the "colder" months of the year. While the seasonal changes may at times be imperceptible to us- our skin often tells a very different story.

The weather has been gorgeous lately, but I have noticed that my skin is a little dry (and I have decidedly combination skin) and my lips are ridiculously chapped. I have plenty of good moisturizing lip balms, but the other day while at CVS I saw the EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm that I have been trying to find for some time. So naturally I grabbed it and started using it immediately.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) lip balms are really comfortable on the lips, and frankly the little twist top egg is pretty fun to use- making it a go-to product for me. I have their Honeysuckle Honeydew flavor as well, but I prefer the refreshing feeling and taste of the Sweet Mint.  This balm really seems to help heal my parched cracking lips, and feels good in the process. I also really like that it is filled with lots of good ingredients, and that it isn't filled with lots of bad ones. That it is 100% natural & 95% organic is even better!

Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.

Overall assessment: I really really like EOS lip balms in general, but I L O V E the Sweet Mint lip balm the most! I highly recommend EOS lip balms, but try to find the Sweet Mint!

I paid $3.29 at my local CVS. Also available from EOS, Ulta, Walgreens, Unbeatable Sale, Selfridges, and Bed, Bath & Beyond (Affiliate Links).


  1. The body wash is easy to spread across the body but when used with a shower pouf it is even easier to work up to a thick and lather, while it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean.

    1. I have never tried anything other than their lip balms- thanks for letting me know that their body wash is so nice!
