You know those sour strap lollies – they come in apple, grape, blue (is blue a flavour?) and strawberry. They’re really artificial tasting and covered in sugar. Yeah, those. They’re gooood. I love them.
Anyway, I was in Duane Reade (drug store) picking up some band-aids when I spotted the Chapsticks out of the corner of my eye. Excellent, I love cherry Chapstick and it isn’t as easy to find as strawberry back home. And then I spotted the EOS lip balms. EOS is Evolution Of Smooth and the lip balms are little egg shapes. I had read about them but never seen them in person so I made a beeline and examined all the options – lemon drop, honeysuckle honeydew, medicated tangerine, sweet mint, strawberry sorbet. I figured you can’t go wrong with strawberry, and the pink egg is all kinds of cute, so I threw it in the basket. It tastes and smells EXACTLY like the aforementioned strawberry sour strap lollies. Also, it’s made with shea butter and jojoba oil so my dry lips are loving it. I’m going back for all the flavours.
EOS Evolution of Smooth lip balm – $4.39 from the drug store
