EOS is practically synonymous with lip balm. The adorable round products are as fun to look as they are to use, not to mention how good they feel when applied. (Especially those transparent Crystal lip balms the brand launched last summer — obsessed.) Although the brand has offered hand cream, body lotion, and shaving cream for a while now, EOS is still widely considered a lip balm brand. But its latest launch, a facial skin-care range, might very well put it on the map for so much more.
Called the EOS Aqua Collection, the line is inspired by the texture and benefits of water, and incorporates one of the most skin-loving ingredients found in it: seaweed. Nutrient-rich and nourishing, it plays an important role in the products’ ability to hydrate, soothe, and balance skin. There are only six products so far, but all sound pretty amazing, and right in line with EOS’s general delightfulness.
For example, the Hydrating Skin Prep ($20) is a super-hyphenate, acting as a toner, serum, moisturizer, and primer.
Then there’s the Purifying Clay Mask ($18), which promises to do some serious smoothing, but is gentle enough to be used nearly nightly.
And the Glistening Lotion ($20) is more or less angel skin in a bottle, made to hydrate skin from head to toe.
The rest of the the Aqua collection is rounded out — almost literally when you consider the shape of most of the packaging — by something we all know EOS excels in: lip products. There’s the sugar-based Exfoliating Lip Scrub ($10), the overnight Deep Hydration Lip Mask ($10), and the color-changing Dynamic Lip Gloss ($16).
Unfortunately, unlike other EOS product in existence, the Aqua products aren’t available practically everywhere — they’re an online exclusive. Fortunately, however, everything in the line is $20 or less at evolutionofsmooth.com.
