Four Things to Do with Your eos Lip Balm That Don’t Involve Your Lips

This secret moisturizing miracle worker can soothe, and treat from your head to your feet.


Easy to overlook and way underappreciated for its beauty benefits, the lip balm is often relegated to a single purpose: caring for your lips. But what if we told you that that pocket-sized smoother could actually pack a much bigger beauty punch? Loaded with good-for-your-skin hydrators, antioxidants and essential vitamin E, eos’ Visibly Soft and Organic Spheres have improved formulas featuring 95% of their ingredients from controlled organic farming. It’s now equipped with even more hydrating natural butters and oils (like coconut, olive or jojoba oils, plus shea or cocoa butters) to provide you with the perfect pout year-round. Their combination of superior organic + natural elements ensures that your lips (and the rest of you) are reaping the benefits with long-lasting moisture, and skin barrier protecting vitamins and nutrients. Here, the many ways an eos lip balm has proven its worth.

Smooth Move #1: Eyebrow Tamer

Beauty benefits: Because the balms utilize soft waxes like beeswax, rice bran wax (Visibly Soft), and carnauba wax (Organic Sphere), they add shine and tame even the unruliest of brows.
How to do it: Using an eyebrow spoolie, gently rub the edges over the top of the eos sphere. You want your brush to be lightly coated in balm. Then, after you’ve applied your usual brow makeup, brush through brows with the balm from inner to outer edges.
Expert insight: “A balm works much better than a hairspray because it has staying power but doesn’t make brows feel sticky or stiff,” says hair and makeup expert Emily Kate Warren.

Smooth Move #2: Silky Eyeshadow

Beauty benefits: Perfect for those with dry skin, or anyone looking for a subtle glowy makeup look, mixing an eos sphere with any powder shadow gives your eyes an illuminated effect.
How to do it: Use the wooden end of your eyeshadow brush to scrape a bit of powder shadow from your palette and place it on the back of your hand, or a plate. Then dig a small dab of balm from the top of the sphere. Mix the balm into the powder shadow then blend over lids and up to creases.
Expert insight: “Mixing the two together creates a cream-gloss hybrid. It’s not nearly as shiny or goopy as regular eye gloss, so it’s easier to wear, plus you have this light gorgeous sheen,” says Warren.

Smooth Move #3: Highlighter

Beauty benefits: Aside from the uber moisturizing qualities that protect skin from environmental stressors, the Visibly Soft Lip Sphere gives the perfect amount of highlight to skin that looks glowing, not greasy. Plus, it’s shimmer-free so the effect looks natural, and lit-from-within.
How to do it: The balm is perfectly shaped for rolling over the high points of the face (brow bones and cheekbones), shoulders and collarbones. After applying over each area, tap the balm into skin, don’t rub.
Expert insight: “Blended on the bony parts of the body and face, it gives a dewy highlight, which works well for skin of all ages,” explains Warren.

Smooth Move #4: Cuticle Moisturizer

Beauty benefits: The combination of four protective, moisturizing oils in the eos Organic Sphere (Sunflower Seed, coconut, jojoba and olive), means the nutrients penetrate deeply into skin to soften and restore dry, flakey cuticles.
How to do it: Roll the balm over each cuticle bed. Then massage it into and around the cuticles and nails.
Expert insight: Less messy than a traditional liquid cuticle oil, the balm is easy to use on-the-go, and can be reapplied throughout the day with a few quick swipes. Plus, it sinks in and doesn’t leave behind an oily film.
