*Birthday Bash Giveaway* EOS -evolution of smooth-Shave Cream and Lip Balm

Saturday, July 17, 2010

EOS evolution of smooth products and I have some history.
I had sent away for a sample of some lip balm last fall. It came in the mail the day before I was going for surgery, so I just tossed it in my overnight bag and didn't think anything of it...until the day of surgery.

That lip balm saved me! The nurse kept wanting to put balm that the hospital had- it was so waxy and actually dried my lips out. My lips were cut from the tube they used. I asked hubby to please look in my bag for that sample I threw in there. Wow, it was so refreshing!

Yeah, I know, you are probably thinking, "lip balm is all the same." I used to think that too, until my hospital experience. Now it's only EOS for me. Matter of fact, that Christmas, everyone got that in their little stockings I make every year...even my 91 year-old Grandma! She loves it too.
It's 95% organic and 100% natural...that's for me!
Most balms make me lick my lips more, this doesn't and my lips feel so hydrated. It's also paraben and petrolatem free.
Here's a little excerpt from their site:

Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That’s why we invented this one.
  • Long-lasting moisture
  • Shea butter & vitamin E
  • Smoothes on clear
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
  • Twist-off top
  • Gluten-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Petrolatum-free
  • Phthalate-free
eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.
The other flavors are:
My bottom line is ...This is a MUST for me. I have every flavor of it, and it's even on my nightstand! When I make care packages, you bet this is in it!

Soooo when EOS got in touch with me to do a review on their shaving cream, you know I was excited! I wasn't disappointed either.
I am almost 6' tall, so shaving to me, is a chore! I always end up knicking myself, no matter how careful I am and no matter what razor I use, even if it does have "safety" blades, and even when I use shaving cream. Most times, I admit, I am in a hurry and just wet shave, using soap and water in the shower.
But...
now shaving is an experience I look forward to!
I got the EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Lavendar Jasmine


and to say it was a pleasant experience that I now look forward to is really an under statement.
I didn't come out of the bathroom with knicked up legs! In fact, my legs were so smooth, I didn't even need lotion on them that night, the lotion is already in the shaving cream- oooh lala!
And as an added bonus, my bathroom and adjoining bedroom smelled wonderful!
Usually shave cream dries my legs out and later makes me itchy. This shaving cream doesn't at all. It went on smooth, creamy, no foam to it...and didn't just melt away either.
Here's the best part!
You can shave wet OR dry with it! I tried both, and even dry, it's still smoothing and refreshing, still didn't need lotion. That's because it's made with natural aloe, oat, shea butter and antioxidant vitamins E and C (all the good stuff!!) to leave your skin looking great and actually helps boost mositure levels in your skin. I couldn't stop touching my legs that night, neither could hubby *wink*

I know I will be stocking up on this product as well!
There are other scents and I want to try them too, especially the Isalnd Breeze! Their other scents are:
The bottle is also recyclable...also great!

EOS is going to give a bottle of Pomegranate Raspberry Ultra Moisturizing Shaving Cream and a Lemon Drop Lip Balm Sphere to one of my readers. All you have to do is go to the EOS  and tell me what store you, personally can get eos products at...and if you don't have anywhere around you, then where would you purchase it online? That's it!
