Prelude to Springtime Kisses — Check out the eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm Limited Edition Spring 2014 Pack!
Forget an Easter egg hunt — this spring, big girls will be scavenging to scoop up as many of these limited edition two-packs of egg-shaped eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balms as possible. The brand has been stepping up its packaging game, luring customers with adorable printed boxes and cartons — this was certainly the case with last summer’s adorable gingham-themed Basket of Fruit Smooth Sphere Lip Balm 4-Pack or its Holiday 2013 3-pack Ornament, packaged inside a snowflake-adorned clear case. This season, the beloved brand coming up roses with the eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm Spring 2014 2-Pack, featuring two fruit-flavored lip moisturizers positioned atop a whimsical, illustrated, floral-themed card, each round balm placed at the center of a daisy in a corresponding color, right where the blossom’s capitulum would be located. A recyclable plastic covering keeps the two egg-shaped balms in place.
Available for a limited time only, the eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm Spring 2014 2-Pack retails for $5.99 and can be found at Target, CVS, Walgreens, and Ulta stores. The flower power-themed pack contains two mouth-watering lip balm flavors: the ever popular Strawberry Sorbet, which smells like gummy strawberry candy (think of a pack of Welch’s Fruit Snacks in Strawberry), and the limited edition Passion Fruit flavor, which was previously introduced as part of a Summer 2011 pack. Though it’s meant to remind users of a passion fruit slice, the Passion Fruit Smooth Sphere Lip Balm smells like a grape-flavored Charms Blow Pop, and it tastes a bit like a grape slushy, albeit with a tangier, sweeter, more exotic flavor profile.
As is the case with all Smooth Spheres, these lip balms were formulated using 100% natural and USDA-certified ingredients. These include: fatty acid-rich, conditioning and moisturizing shea butter; jojoba oil, which seals in moisture, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, and fortifies the skin’s moisture barrier to better protect it from both free radicals and dehydration; antioxidant-rich sunflower oil, a great source of vitamin E; and olive oil, which provides longer lasting hydration.
Because they’re packaged inside egg-shaped cased with twist-off caps, you can apply the lip balm to your pout without ever having to dip your fingers into a tin or squeeze a droplet of moisturizer onto your index finger. Because of this design, then, you never have to worry about germ-ridden fingers on your pout, making the entire lip hydration experience more hygienic.
The eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balms have long ranked among my favorite lip moisturizers, rivaling more expensive offerings like the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in regards to both their instant soothing capabilities and their long-term hydration benefits.
You can always buy an individual eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm but this two-pack is so perky and adorable, it will make a great addition to any Easter basket or Mother’s Day gift bag. If you’re hosting a Mother’s Day brunch, you can even decorate the table with these and urge guests to take a pack home as a party favor!
