For decades, lip moisturizers consisted of plain, cylinder type tubes that didn’t offer anything but plain ole lip greasing. Then, came the scented flavors of mint and cherry.
It gave consumers a small choice to choose from when moisturizing the lips. Chapstick and a few other brands dominated the market till about 7 years ago. Then EOS lip balm was born and it took off quickly. EOS is a unique lip moisturizing product that comes in these pastel orbs, offering various scents and taste.
EOS stands for Evolution of Smooth. EOS can be seen on numerous magazine covers and ads with it’s colorful displays. Allure and Cosmo editors couldn’t get enough of this beautiful pastel orbs and it wasn’t long til celebrities were spotted using EOS. Kim Kardashian was seen pulling an EOS orb from her make up bag. This created the hype the company needed to go forward. EOS lip moisturizers are now taking over the shelves at Walgreens, Racked, Target, Walmart, and countless other retail stores. http://www.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-strawberry-sorbet/-/A-13731791

Lip balms are seen as a unisex product. It goes along the same lines as toothpaste and mouthwash. But even as a unisex product, studies showed that women were still more likely to buy lip balms than their male counterparts.
