There is frost on the ground, a chill in the air and holiday memorabilia everywhere you look. It is finally time to start shopping for gifts and trimming the tree but amidst all the excitement don’t forget to protect your pout from harsh winter winds. As I always say – all the beautiful lipstick in the world can’t hide chapped lips and there is nothing worse than a pretty matte pigment on dry, peeling skin.
To help keep your pout mistletoe-ready, eos has created a delicious variety of new products that hydrate and heal. I’ve tried and tested countless balms, oils, butters and tints but eos has remained my absolute favorite. These little globes are totally trendy! The smooth buttery texture lasts for hours and the spherical shape makes them easy to locate in my chaotic purse.
The balms are organic and loaded with nourishing Jojoba, Shea Butter, Vitamin E and antioxidants for a blast of rich moisture that instantly relieves parched skin. The formula is also free of gluten, parabens, petroleum and phthalates with a rich texture that lasts for hours.
When lips are dehydrated, sore and peeling, the new Medicated Lip Balm ($4.17) comes to the rescue. Infused with cooling menthol and soothing chamomile, it alleviates pain, sensitivity, dryness and chapping. The texture isn’t as creamy as the other balms but it treats and restores effectively so lips appear soft and healthy.
The limited edition Peppermint Cream eos ($4.17) smells like Christmas and happiness. This is probably my favorite scent the brand has ever created (I’m currently trying not to eat it). If you love delicious candy canes then this is the balm for you – it feels refreshing, rejuvenating and wonderful so stock-up before it’s gone and drop one in everyone’s stocking!
I’ve never described a lip balm as beautiful before but the new Crystal Collection is. The unique translucent design looks like a snow globe and the sweet formula revives, softens and hydrates with tropical coconut and creamy avocado. A nutritive blend of oils provides luminous shine and the balms are vegan and wax-free. They retail for $6.96 each.
The limited edition holiday 3-pack ($11.39) comes with three delicious flavors – Peppermint Mocha, Organic Vanilla Bean and Natural Sparkling Ginger.
I love the striped packaging of the Peppermint Mocha and although the scent isn’t as strong as Peppermint Cream, it smells yummy and makes lips supple and plush.
The Ginger eos reminds me of gingerbread cookies yet it isn’t overpowering. This scrumptious spice helps correct skin tone, improve elasticity and protect against free radical damage with a powerful cocktail of antioxidants.
Vanilla Bean is a delightful aroma everyone seems to enjoy and this little snowball makes my pout feel luscious and smooth.
No matter what the season, UV protection is important so eos has created a balm with SPF 15 ($4.17). The zesty lemon scent is refreshing and the antioxidant-rich formula is water and sweat resistant for 80 minutes. If you’re escaping to the tropics this winter, don’t forget to shield your lips – it will help prevent fine lines, discoloration and skin aging.
Don’t let dull lips put a damper on your holiday party. When that cute lipstick starts to dry out and you need a pretty blast of moisture, simply smear on the Shimmer Balm ($6.96). Available in 3 luminous shades it provides lovely shine and a little glam.
