I’m not a very fond user of lip balms. I usually just use vaseline if I have dry lips. Or if I’m feeling a little girly, I use Blistex (that’s for another post)
Anyway, I decided to purchase EOS lipbalm coz my friends has been raving about it and I think its cute. (HA!) I didn’t know what to get so I decided on the safest bet, Strawberry Sorbet.
I opened the package immediately and this is what I got.
It was just half a sphere! LOL. The poor thing melted. No one’s to blame though…It is REALLY hot here. The rest of the balm is underneath. I did a little research (thanks Mr. Google) and found out that I’m not the only one. So, how did I fix it?
I placed the “egg” (upside down) outside so the
warm HOT sun can melt it again. I left it like that for about an hour or so. It didn’t turn out what I was expecting but its good enough. The product became “softer” so it was easier to manage.
Next thing I did was scoop out the half sphere and put it in the rounded side of the egg. Then with an army knife, I removed the grid stopper in the middle and scooped our the remaining product. With clean hands, I gently pressed the product so that it would take the shape of the mold.
Then I reassembled the packaging. Placed the egg inside the freezer for some time and voila! I have a whole sphere again. It’s not as smooth but hey, at least I have the whole thing!
