EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere is a newly launched, reformulated Lip Balm Sphere available in two shades for Fall 2014.
I was quite curious about the new EOS formula since I already love and use the old version. Of course, the older formula isn’t terribly hydrating but it’s enough moisture that it leaves lips pleasantly softened through the wear.
Let’s have a look!
Ok, so aside from new packaging which has a fun swirl design I’m not technically seeing much difference in this formulas. I compared the old version to the new and they appear to have identical ingredient aside from the addition of coconut oil in this new formula.
I tried Vanilla Mint which is a new flavor. It’s quite delicately scented and flavored so if you’re sensitive to fragrance/flavor in your lip product this should be an issue.
As you can see it has the same great half dome design that fit lips quite nicely. I love applying these as they have a nice, easy glide across lips. They leave behind a slightly waxy balmy textured finish which keeps lips pleasantly softened through the wear. Some folks say it’s not enough moisture but I’m ok with it! Granted, it isn’t going to change your dry lip life but it’s enough moisture that you can quickly apply at your desk and get some needed relief for drier lips.
The EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere is definably a little confusing. I expected a dramatic change in the formula but it’s about the same we’ve come to either love or not love from the regular line of EOS Lip Balm Spheres. Of course, you get the addition of new packaging and a new flavor with this launch!
