Thanks to Justine who gave me this EOS lip balm, I've been addicted to its smell and its er...funny packaging. The flavour I got is Lemon Drop, the only flavour which comes with SPF 15 (bonus points for that!). The balm is packaged in a spherical shape and I keep bouncing and playing with it.
首先感謝Justine寄了這個EOS潤唇膏給我, 從此我對它的味道 + 特別包裝上癮了. 我手上的味道是檸檬味, 還有防曬 SPF 15. 這個乒乓球狀的潤唇膏實在太好玩了, 我拿在手中不停拋. 哈哈
The balm has 7g of product, which is pretty decent for a lip balm and the price you pay. I am doubtful whether one can finish it though (more on that below). The smell is amazing, like lemon candies with honey.
它有 7grams, 以價錢來說不俗. 但致於能否完成整個潤唇膏我則有點保留 (看尾段). 無可否認的是, 它的檸檬蜜糖味道很吸引啊.
Consistency wise, it's not sticky, and it stays on for hours. I tried sleeping with it and when I woke up it's still on my lips. I can't really comment on the moisturizing bit though, since I think it pretty much sits on top of the lips but not really sinking in. Depends on whether you're looking for a protective coat with extra SPF I'd say.
質感方面, 不會黏著黏著的, 可以維持數小時. 我試過睡前塗, 第二天早上還在嘴上. 我不覺得它滋潤, 因為塗在唇上之後, 沒錯它是持久, 但似是停留在表面但這不代表它被吸收. 那要看看你想找甚麼功能的潤唇膏了, 滋潤型? 防曬型? 香味型?
So what happens is, you twist off the top and swipe this on your lips, but the dome-shaped lip balm will eventually flatten out and becomes er, flat. By that time how are you supposed to apply? By fingers maybe? I've seen it on some blogs that once it's flattened and when you apply it to your lips, your teeth would easily come into contact with the flattened top. I chose not to think too much on that, though (giggles).
For the price you pay, this is a decent lip balm with a fun twist, and it smells wonderful too. Although for me the fun and playful packaging scores more than the product itself. But if you have a few dollars to spare, or looking for something fun as a gift, this might be a choice!
使用方法是這樣的, 扭開蓋然後塗上唇, 但圓拱型的設計經過無數次使用後便會扁掉 (看過有博客提及), 然後你想再使用時就很難不會碰到牙齒了. 難道你要用手指塗嗎...? 想都這裡我選擇不再想下去了 (笑).
價錢是不俗的, 包裝很新穎, 香味亦很誘人. 但在我來看, 包裝是令它出名的主因, 若有數十元又想找禮物給朋友的話, EOS潤唇膏的確是不錯的選擇.
