I've been searching for a different lip balm. I used to Mentholatum but I am getting over it, since I can't get it here.
I went to Mecca Cosmetica in Claremont, at that moment, I was just wanting red lip stick. Instead of coming home with just one red lip stick, I came back with Eve Lom Kiss Mix as well. The makeup artist mentioned that my lip was a bit dry and she recommended Eve Lom Kiss Mix to me. I love the Eve Lom Kiss Mix coz it have a bit of a shimmer and also the cooling sensation at the end when you applied on your lips. At $30 for 7ml of lip balm is on the pricy side.
I've also been reading up on EOS lip balm "Evolution of Smooth (EOS) is a global company that makes a number of skin care products such as shaving cream, hand lotions, and EOS lip balm. The company focuses on selling all-natural skin products that are created from fruit and botanical extracts. EOS lip balm is designed to soothe chapped lips and protect the skin with vitamin E, which helps the skin lock in moisture. All of the company’s products are environmentally friendly, as the company strives to diminish the carbon footprint of its manufacturing operations. EOS lip balm is claimed to be manufactured chemical-free" (Quoted from The Dermatology Reivew) Thats why I picked it. The first time I used the lip balm, it have a minty smell and it tasted sweet. The after effect is a cooling sensation that I really like and feels hydrating. I got this from beautybay.com the website. They are selling it at $10.50 each at 7ml as well. If you live in the US it's only USD$3.29 each! Unforutnately, I live in the expensive part of the world hence things cost double to purchase.
It's for you to decide which do you prefer. I like both of them, I leave one at work and one in my handbag to go.
