When it comes to changing a genre or industry, success is the number one attribute. Whatever the industry, sector, division, etc., the product has to be hot and in-demand. This is the case with lip balm products. Fast Company reveals the new king of the hill is (EOS) Evolution of Smooth. This brand maybe ranked second in sells, which is a great achievement in itself, but the brands growth is expected to continue throughout the future. As of today, Evolution of Smooth sales over $1 Million units on a weekly consistent basis. This is no fluke either and many alternatives come into play which helped boost sales.
Some of the most prominent and famous individuals are strong users of the product. Kim Kardashian, Christina Aguilera, and even Miley Cyrus have been spotted with this oddly egg shaped containers in hand. Of course when a celebrity uses a product, their fans will do the exact same thing. It’s not all about celebrity appeal which makes this product a huge success. Evolution of Smooth uses some of the finest natural ingredients that provides the lips with natural healing effects. Unlike other brands which uses chemical additives or watered down natural ingredients, EOS lip balm has set the bar pretty high in an already saturated market where duplicating is frowned upon.
Evolution of Smooth has bumped the industry’s bread winner out of the conversation as “best lip balm product.” Chapstick is still successful, but not at the same degree as years of the past. Unfortunately Chapstick isn’t resonating with younger age groups and (EOS) does. Many of the sales actually comes from the Millennial demographic. By the year 2020, Evolution of Smooth will have “the game on lock” with it’s eclectic look, odd shape, and natural healing properties. If you want to try the brand, head over to the evolutionofsmooth website or your local Target, Walmart, or Lucky Vitamin stores.

Sometimes life is better if you determine you’re not going to let it run you over. People can become so busy sometimes that they start neglecting important things that could make their day easier, and one person who knows this is Susan McGalla. Susan McGalla is someone who has put a lot of hard work into her career, and she eventually reaped the reward of becoming a company president and later a senior consultant. While all her achievements are important, she has also made sure to balance her business life with family and personal time along the way. She gives 11 tips about balancing life, and while they are primarily directed at women, even men can benefit from her advice.
One of the tips she gives in this list as the key priority, is to make time for down time. McGalla knows that without making time to relax and disengage from any busy activities, people will stay stressed out and potentially burn out as well. And another tip she gives for relaxing time is to choose an environment that’s quiet, free of distractions and even physically soothing. In addition to relaxing, McGalla says that stress can be alleviated by taking note of even little tasks you have to do each day, and if possible delegate them out to others or find more efficient ways to do them. Other things that can be done are taking time away from personal technology like computers and cell phones, make time to exercise, and simply just don’t let yourself feel guilty about how you use your time.

In an interview by Fast Company, when entrepreneur Sanjiv Mehra teamed up with startup veterans Jonathan Teller and Craig Dubitsky, the goal they had was simple: to turn a popular drug store beauty aisle item completely on its head. That item, of course, ended up being lip balm, and the rest is history.
EOS (which stands for Evolution of Smooth) lip balm, with its now iconic spherical packaging, can be seen in practically every drug store and grocery store across the world, standing out next to the tired cylindrical design which every other lip balm manufacturer has used for the last century. EOS lip balm products has become so popular that it has been featured in several high-profile beauty and fashion magazines, and countless a-list celebrities can even be seen whipping it out of their purses in paparazzi photographs.
Mehra, Teller and Dubitsky did not have a load of experience in the beauty industry, but, rather, they possessed an intense drive to radically change something which up until that point had never broken from its formula. Chapstick and its countless indistinguishable competitors seemed like an obvious option, as the product earns high amounts of revenue consistently each year despite a complete lack of innovation when it comes to its packaging and branding.
What they created was a lip balm which cleverly comes in a bright pastel-colored sphere (see: https://evolutionofsmooth.com/lip-balm/smooth-spheres.html). The packaging catches the eye immediately. Lots of attention was also put into the ingredients used in the lip balm, so that it would smell and taste as good as possible. The ingredients are organic, as well, which is another top selling point for the product.
Today, EOS is worth $250 million. The lip balm is the second most popular next to Burt’s Bees. The product sells 1 million units weekly on ULTA, and is projected to sell even more as time goes on, as the lip balm industry is predicted to drastically grow over the next several years.
