Lip balm is not the most exciting thing in the world, but it's still a must for long plane rides—all the waiting and dry air makes me impatiently lick my lips a lot!
Now that I have found these cute little spheres of EOS ("Evolution of Smooth") lip balm—all 95 percent organic and 100 percent natural made with jojoba oil, shea butter and vitamin E, I may retire my Kiehl’s tube for good. They are so cute! Each ball twists to open to reveal the balm (with SPF 15, of course) and comes in four distinctive tasty flavors: honeysuckle, summer fruit, lemon, and sweet mint.
And you can buy three flavors in a mesh striped cosmetic case ($9.99), available in May at Walgreens. I can’t stop opening them! They make such a satisfying click when they close. Hey, this may keep me entertained during a flight and any little bit helps on those long hauls to Europe.
