What better way to treat yourself than with a new lip balm? I am one of those people that have to carry my kisser-quenching friend with me. Dry, cracking lips will zap the zest out of a good day.
I have gone through most brands looking for something really great, but I found a unique little gem while shopping at a Target near my home. It was a pastel-green, Honeysuckle Honeydew flavored Eos (Evolution of Smooth). Now- I must be honest. The first time I saw one of these balms, I thought it was a creamy, new candy waiting to be eaten. It was in a spherical container, and the balm inside was also round.
Easily entertained, I walked around to the other check-out lanes to see what other flavors there were. This time, a blue round container with Blueberry Acai (pronounced ah-cy-ee)was there. Another lane down, Coconut Milk flavor in a pastel-pink and white-swirl container.
Now, I go crazy for anything coconut. Around the holidays, the Coconut Milk, Vanilla Bean and Sweet Mint flavors go fast, hop over to Walmart.ca to read details. I recommend being out of the way if you see the last few one a shelf and someone running towards them. Santa’s stocking stuffing is serious, people.
The Eos brand has been around since 2009, and they continue to come up with new flavors, including some that are seasonal. EOS website, found here, supplies handy interactive features that will help you track down where to buy their products. If there is not a convenient location near you, there is the option of buying Eos lip balm directly from the company. Check on ebay.com.

As for me? I am off to get some of the Blackberry Nectar and add it to my luscious lip collection.

YouTuber Kim Dao loves to share her travels across Japan with the rest of the world. One recent Japan-focused travel vlog posted by Kim is called “Japan Vlog: Zao Fox Village in JAPAN | キツネ村.” In this video, Kim Dao visits the celebrated Zao Fox Village in the Miyagi Prefecture.
Kim Dao starts out the video telling viewers that it costs 1,000¥ to enter the Zao Fox Village. After Kim and her boyfriend pay their fees to go inside, she is amazed by all of the foxes running around in the snow. Unfortunately, it’s forbidden to touch any of the foxes because they do bite.
As she stands in the middle of the village, Kim Dao estimates that there are at least 100 foxes all around her. She takes numerous camera shots of the foxes sleeping, playing, and trotting about in the picturesque snow.
Dao explains how visitors can buy food for the foxes for 100¥ once they get inside the village. However, people who purchase the food are asked to feed the foxes from a designated elevated area. Kim then purchases a packet of food and throws it down to dozens of hungry foxes below her.
As Kim Dao is throwing down the treats, one fox jumps up and clutches onto a railing. After a few moments, however, this especially ravenous fox falls back to the ground with his furry companions.
One white fox actually pees on Kim Dao’s sock later in the video. She embarrassingly shows her pee stain to the camera.

Evolution of Smooth, or EOS, has only been on the scene for a few years when compared to more established brands like Chapstick, but the company has definitely made an impact. The spherical lip balms are the second best selling on the market and have gotten the attention of several celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Gwen Stefani.
Popular EOS flavors include Vanilla Bean, which is particularly popular during the winter months. The balm has a sweet aroma and conditioning ingredients like vitamin E to shield the lips from harsh weather. Passionfruit is another great EOS flavor, and sells well in the spring and summer. The balm is made from all natural ingredients, and include jojoba oil to keep lips smooth and moisturized. Click walmart.com
