Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas (I know right? Like where did Summer go?) and if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to get a head start on your shopping, although I’ve also been guilty of racing around like a madwoman until the 24th. That said, the one thing I’ve managed to do every year ahead of schedule, is to prepare my daughter’s Christmas stocking. A personal fave item to include has always been an eos lip balm (or two!) and I’m proud to say that this year I’ve partnered up with eos to share their new Limited Edition Gift Packs for the holidays. With such festive packaging, you won’t even need to wrap them up — how’s that for the perfect stocking stuffers?
The adorableness of eos lip balms has usually had something to do with adding these little orbs to my daughter’s stocking, but now I’m even more impressed with their background; each balm is 95% organic (the highest level of USDA certification) and not only 100% natural, but non-GMO as well. Additionally, they are all: gluten, paraben, petrolatum & phthalate-free, along with being water & sugar-free as well. The last two points are key; since each balm is anhydrous (fancy for ‘containing no water’), no microbial growth can occur and therefore eliminates the need for preservatives such as parabens. Just to sweeten the pot further, each eos lip balm also contains:
- oils, butters & waxes for smoothness, long-lasting moisturization and healthy-looking lips
- Antioxidant-rich Vitamin E
- Shea Butter
- Jojoba oil
Known for their unique domed (and much-copied) design plus absolute cuteness factor aside, each balm is also ergonomically shaped with a soft-touch hold, while the spherical form allows them to be applied directly to the lips, making them much more hygienic to use than pot balms, a fact I actually never really considered before but am really happy to know now.
Bonus: Here are some eos Fun Facts (that Canadians will especially appreciate):
- eos is the largest user of organic beeswax in the world — 2.5 times the amount of maple syrup that Nova Scotia produces annually
- eos buys enough organic raw materials a year to equal the daily beer consumption of 8.6 million Canadians (LOL, even though it’s true)
- eos buys enough olive oil a year to equal the ice used in 8 hockey rinks
- eos buys enough coconut oil a year to fill the two large water tanks at the Toronto CN Tower
The Limited Edition Organic 2-Pack contains a couple of much loved favourites, Vanilla Bean (which I am quite literally obsessed with) and Winterberry (really does smell like Christmas!)
The Limited Edition Organic 3-Pack contains the New Visibly Soft Honey Apple (which smells so insanely yummy, by the way), New organic Wildberry, and organic Passion Fruit.

I find something so totally irresistible about eos lip balms and having a daughter who’s basically a lip balm guru give these the thumbs up, means that something is working. The perfect stocking stuffers they might be, but I’d recommend picking up an extra for yourself as well to avoid any potential lip balm envy (it’s totally a thing).
