Spot The Difference: Eos vs Balmi

 I thought I would do something different today on two lip products: Eos balm and the Balmi lipbalm, since they are very similar. I will just be given a overview on what I think is good and bad about these two products.

First of all for those who don't already know eos balms are known to be purchased in America or online and the Balmi lipbalms can be purchased in Boot's in the UK. I had heard of the eos balms for years but never got around to ordering one, until recently.

 I came across the Balmi lipbalms last year sometime in Boot's and thought 'oh these look like Eos balms' so I thought I would give it a go. Mine is in the flavour coconut if anyone wants to know. Anyway's firstly it smells delicious, it is very moisturising, definitely hydrates your lips, it is long lasting and easy to apply. All of which are amazing! 


I came across the Eos balms on Amazon last month and thought 'why not' so I ordered the strawberry one, it did take awhile to arrive but when it did I instantly gave it a try. To be completely honest with you..I don't know if it as worthy as what the Balmi lipbalms are. I felt like nothing was rolling on my lips and it was very minimal hydration. I will obviously give it more time to review but first thoughts aren't as great as Balmi's were.

Balmi

Eos Balm

  3. I was hoping someone would review Balmi after I saw them the other day in Boots and think I will definitely be giving it a try! I don't know if you've been nominated for Versatile Blogger before but I've mentioned you in my recent post so have a look when you have a moment :) I really enjoy your posts!

  6. I agree with you on this! I loved my EOS, until I got my Balmi, and now I am a convert! I still would use an EOS if I got another, but would choose balmi over it :)
    I haven't actually used my coconut one yet!

  10. will need to buy a Balmi now... I got EOS lipbalm when I was in Vegas earlier this year, it just feels very waxy and you have to keep reapplying it.

    thanks for comparing :)
