eos now makes shave cream!

Yeah, you heard that right. eos now makes shave cream! eos kindly sent these two bottles of shave cream my way, for reviewing. shave-cream-eos

The sun is shining, and it’s about dang time to show off those legs. Shave your legs with eos’ shave cream and slap on some self tanner and you’re ready for spring.

Dare I say this is better than the smooth sphere lip balms? To be honest, the smooth sphere lip balms by them aren’t my top pick. My co-worker Julie has five or more and adores them. Anytime I’m in her office she stops to apply a bit. She goes through them like buttah. To each their own. My preference is their hand cream, and now their shave cream.

eos always comes out with unique packaging. From their hand creams, and smooth sphere lip balms to this plastic velvety coating of a bottle with a decent pump for easy application.

The bottle is made out of plastic meaning it won’t leave those terribly annoying rust stains on the edge of your tub. Why can’t all companies jump on this plastic shave cream wagon?eos-shave-cream-pump

You see, if I run out shave gel, I usually resort to using a few pumps of conditioner on my legs. The eos shave cream is similar in consistency to conditioner where as it will not foam up on  your legs. Don’t let that deter you from trying it out though. These bottles of shave cream are packed with natural conditioning oils and shea butter for that added softness and moisture on your legs which will soften and soothe your skin for a full 24 hours. I can attest to that. eos-shave-cream-on-hand


eos-shave-creamShown above are the two of the three scents available to Canadians. I know there’s much more variety in the states. Pomegranate Raspberry which smells so good I kind of wanted to eat it. Dangeous. Then the white classic looking bottle is a sensitive – Fragrance Free (Hypoallergenic & Dermatologist Tested). These products are not tested on animals, and contain no animal by-products.

The eos shave creams are now available for $3.99 at:

•  Rexall

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!
