Balmi Lip Balms - EOS Lip Balm Dupe?

Hello lovelies,

I have always always wanted to get my hands on the EOS lip balms after seeing them on countless blogs and was patiently waiting until i go to the US to get my hands on them next month! However the I Love Cosmetics brand seem to have brought us our own UK alternative in the form of the Balmi Lip Balm. They come in five different flavours: Strawberry, Coconut, Mint, Blackcurrant and Raspberry and even though they wont be launched until August 2012, Boots will be one of their stockists.
I was sent a couple to try, the mint and the blackcurrant. First things first, the both smell absolutely amazing! The mint one has a cooling effect so tingles when you apply it which i personally love. They are both colourless and feel extremely mosturising on the lips. 

Both have SPF 15 which i think is amazing as our lips need protection too as they are constantly on show to harmful UV rays. They also contain Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil so as you can imagine they keep lips moisturised and super smooth. 

The actual packaging is what is most similar looks wise to the EOS lip balms (as i cant comment on the actual balm as i have never tried the EOS ones) but they come in a rounded pot that swivels off in the middle so you can swipe on your lips and go. No faffing or getting sticky fingers from dipping into lip balm! 


They also come with a little key chain ring so you can attach them to your keyring or phone however i think i will be taking these off. The colours of the pots are also appropriate to the scent names which i love! 


If you are on the hunt for a new lip balm then i highly recommend the Balmi lip balms! Im personally not a lover of Vaseline as i find them too greasy and messy, something that Balmi are not! Love them!


Read more about them at balmi.co.uk/.

The Balmi Lip Balms will be released in August 2012 stores in Boots and Mountain Warehouse for £4.99.

What do you think? Will you be getting your hands on them?

  21. It actually looks very similar to the EOS one on the outside but not on the inside. Unlike EOS, Balmi contains mainly chemicals like petrolatum, paraben, POLYBUTENE...etc. And it's not that cheap.
