Review: eos lip balm

Hello Shopahaulics, Tiffany here, and I want to tell you guys that this is going to be a review over a culmination of using the eos lip balm egg shaped ones for over two years.

Packaging: Unfortunately, I am not a huge fan of the packaging in the sense that it is hard to carry around if you have a small wristlet. I know that they have the stick versions as you can see in the picture above, but I do not know where you can buy them other than online.

Durability: This chapstick in the past two years (I have repurchased eos at least six times or more) has never failed me and no matter how many times it has fallen or been crushed in my bag, it has never broken on me.

Pigmentation: There is no pigmentation in any of the egg-shaped eos balms.

Budget: If you normally buy Carmex or something that is really affordable, you might not like eos. At Walmart, where I live, eos costs $2.96. I buy mine at Ulta, which again where I live, costs $3.27 (I think). I buy it at Ulta because they usually have more scents than Walmart. However, I saw at Target the new eos that, in the picture, is the farthest left called raspberry pomegranate.

My Thoughts: I tried eos first when I found out about it from Ingrid or missglamorazzi on youtube. I bought my first on which was the lemon scent. Below, I will list each one that I have tried and let you know what I thought, that way you can see which one you might be more inclined to get if you do.

Just a note that all of these do the same thing, they just smell different.

-Lemon: It definitely smells like lemon and if you are worried about acidity, there is none that I have ever noticed.

-Strawberry Sorbet: Not my favorite but it is good. A rather boring scent in the sense that you don’t get a tingly feeling on your lips. But if you really like strawberries, I would definitely get this one.

-Passion Fruit: This is a really nice scent since it isn’t the normal kind. It doesn’t give a tingly feeling either.

-Honeydew Honeysuckle: I know of an Asian candy that tastes like honeydew. I have always loved the scent of honeysuckle so this one was a nice scent to have.

-Sweet Mint: My favorite because this has a tingly feeling and smells really nice, especially since I use this before I sleep. Even if you have cracked lips, this works so well and doesn’t sting.

Let me know in the comments below if you are going to get it or if you do have it, let me know which you is your favorite!

Shopping Monologue: Ulta <3

Hello Shopahaulics, Tiffany here, and I recently went into Ulta to return a hair straightener and to get new face products! The reason I returned my hair straightener was not that it was not good, I never even tried it, it was because there was a scratch on the plate. I know, something so minute and I returned it, but I don’t like when I buy something new that it is scratched already.

Anyway, I bought two clean and clear products and some of you may know that I am a huge fan of most of their products. I have to say that I have tried possibly more than half of their products. On this run to Ulta, I got the clean and clear morning burst detoxifying facial cleanser. I currently am using the shine control cleanser and wanted to try another in the line of morning burst. I also repurchased the clean and clear advantage oil absorbing cream cleanser since it is has done wonders to my skin, minus a little dryness.

My last item is a favorite of mine which is the eos lip balm in sweet mint and it is so good! If you get the chance to try an eos and don’t want a fruit flavor, go with the sweet mint.
