What’s In My Purse?

My brand new purse is a Fossil brand and it’s from the new collection called the Explorer. This is the Explorer flap.

Don’t you want to see what’s inside? Keep on viewin’!

The purse I have is such a beautiful fresh salmon color. Perfect for the summer which is just right around the corner. There are a million and one pockets in this bad boy, and often things get lost. Mainly because I don’t have a specific compartment for my things yet. I need to remember which pouch I’ve stored my wallet, etc.

  1. My coupon envelope
  2. Toiletries bag from Glymm
  3. iPad 2
  4. EOS hand lotion
  5. Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
  6. EOS lip balm
  7. Juicy Couture wallet
  8. Nature’s Path granola bar
  9. Sample of Chanel’s Chance
  10. My BlackBerry

I filmed a video over the weekend so you can get a closer look at the purse and the in’s and out’s of it. See below:

EOS — Evolution Of Smooth

What the heck am I holding in my hands?

It’s an EOS (Evolution Of Smooth) lip balm! Crazy right?EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

Regardless of how awesome the product may be inside, I think the best part about EOS products has definitely got to be the eye catching packaging they’ve come up with. Everything is egg shaped, and so cute.

EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben free. It’s also enriched with Shea butter and Vitamin E.

If I didn’t know the scent of the Strawberry Sorbet, I would’ve said it smelled a little like play-dough. But now that I got the scent figured out I now realize that it is in fact Strawberry. It’s really pleasant, despite the first initial sniff of the product, unknowingly what scent it was. Oopsie.

The packaging of the EOS lip balms either comes in a cardboard package like this, or wrapped up in plastic wrap like mine did. The one shown above is a HoneySuckle scent. Also amazing.

As a Graphic Designer, I’m always on my computer at work. Meaning I’m constantly touching my keyboard and mouse. My hands get so unbelievably dry all year round I even have been nick-named Lizard Hands by some people in the past. So I have a constant stock pile of lotions at my desk just so I don’t have that scaly look to my hands all day long. Not attractive.

Another great eye catching design by EOS.

EOS Everyday Hand lotion in a light fruity scent. It’s 97% natural and comes in a few different scents. It smells so clean, like you just washed your hands kind of scent. It is at my desk at work, and it’s important for me to use a hand lotion that doesn’t’ leave a film once rubbed in. You know that feeling, right? I don’t want greasy palm prints on my mouse, nor residue left on my keyboard. This EOS hand lotion is so convertible that you can easily slip it into your pocket or purse and it won’t leak, or take up much room.

You may notice that the EOS hand lotion may look really small but due to the unique, sleek packaging it looks like you are getting less. Remember to look at the millilitres or ounces that you’re getting. I compared my drugstore hand cream to the EOS Hand Lotion and EOS had 4ml less. Not bad, especially since EOS retails for $3.99 CDN and my hand cream was $6.00.

The EOS Hand Lotions aren’t yet available to us Canadians. But they’ll be launching in May/June. But you can pick up EOS products at major retailers such as Chapters/Indigo, RW&Co, and Walmart.

Have you tried out any EOS products before? When EOS first came out with their Smooth Sphere Lip Balm’s I picked up two at RW&Co in the Fresh Mint scent. One to give to my bestie in Ottawa for Christmas and one for myself to keep. Such great products!
