I must share this fabulous product that I have been using since late July. It is called EOS Smooth Sphere. This fabulous little ball of balm was in one of swag bags a Blogher and I waited a few days to try it. Why? Well, let me tell you.
I have always been a 'must wear lipstick out the door' gal. I could have messy hair and no makeup but always had lipstick with me and on my lips. That all changed 2 years ago when I suddenly had this horrible reaction with blistering, itching, oozing, pain and all sorts of nastiness on just some areas near outer rim of my upper lip. No, not herpes people. In fact, I spent a number of months going to Yale to see doctors.
These doctors tested me for just about everything with no answer but threw all kinds of steroidal creams at me. So far this year, I had given up trying any more brands and variations (stains, tinted balms etc) to find I react to all of them. At any rate, besides Vaseline and Eucerin balm, I have not been able to wear anything until EOS smooth sphere. I reluctantly tried it and waited to wake up in the middle of the night to a reaction but did not. I went days with no reaction so began using it and am thrilled. I also love it because of its hard 'shell' that does not get crushed in purse and get all over. I have not yet tried the melon or summer fruit so my experience has only been with the sweet mint.
In addition, it is organic and affordable. My friends will be finding these in their gift bags/stockings. Oh, I see they have a stick version as well. Yes, please!
We also received the shaving cream. Bliss.
