I have quite a few EOS lip balms and like the others I love this one. first off they are so cute and are really easy to find in a big bag but if you have a small purse or don't carry a purse it might be an issue as they don't fit well in pockets. the flavors are all amazing (or the ones I've tired are) but we're talking about the mint one right now, i love the minty tingly felling and It tastes like Andes mints. I love the non waxy feeling I get when I use these. they dont last too long one me though because I like to lick my lips so i got to reapply often which is my own fault. they are a mostly organic and 100% natural which for me is always a plus, and not tested on animals, all in all I think its a good product and think everyone should try a flavor.
I bought literally all of the flavours, for no good reason really, and sweet mint is my favourite one. I find it's the only one thats really interesting. The mint has a slight plumping effect, kind of like burts bees original balm. I really like the ingredients, all natural oils. I don't have anything against these balms, but I don't think they're anything special. EOS did some great marketing and they turned into a huge fad. I think the look and concept of them is what excited people - they're really cute and different. But overall the actual balm isn't anything special. They don't stay on very long, more like an apply 10 times a day type of thing. They don't have that beeswax feel that makes burts bees stay on well (even though beeswax is in the ingredients). They are kind of annoying to carry if your purse is small as well.
I think this is just a decent balm in an interesting container... and that's all.
Today I purchased EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm for the first time and it became an instant favorite. My lips felt instantly moisturized after the first application, and I love the scent. Not to mention, the packaging is absolutely adorable.
I was so impressed with this product that I used it to kick-off my blog a couple of days earlier than I had originally anticipated.
I'll definitely be buying this product again.

Admittedly, my favorite lip balm is the Fresh Sugar lip balm, but I can't justify spending over 20 dollars on it. Come on now. For the price, I really enjoy the eos balms. This scent is my favorite - it smells just like a candy cane to me. When I use it right before bed, I wake up with very soft lips. The packaging is adorable too.
Hi everyone,this is a review for the Mint EOS lip balm sphere.
I like the packaging. Easy to find in my purse, cute with a smooth coating that feels smooth in the hands. I personally have used EOS in my lip balm collection for years-- I never found it drying, hard to apply or of poor quality. In fact, it's smooth, creamy and extremely minty and tingling (I love that, if you don't like mint I'd avoid this flavor.)
I love wearing the Mint EOS after I brush my teeth, it makes me feel SO refreshed and clean. It also moisturizes my lips and makes them feel happy without being glossy or sticky. It leaves a slight sheen but not super glossy or anything. Also, no white residue or anything gross like that.
I've tried the Summer Fruit, Lemon, Honeydew Honeysuckle and the Strawberry. All of them gave me hives except the Mint. I am extremely allergic to anything with fragrance on my face (and even suffer eczema from Bath and Body Works or other highly and un-naturally fragranced products) so the mint is perfect for sensitive skin types.
Does not contain SPF, which is a plus if I want to use it at night or if you are allergic to that too (like I am)
Overall I feel like my lips are healthy and kissable when I wear this balm. No skin reactions. I'd purchase again if I ran out of this.
I don’t really like wearing lipstick or lipgloss as often as the next girl so I’m always on a hunt for incredible lip balms. The Eos (Evolution of Smooth) one in “sweet mint” is one of my favourites. I have three so I always have one in my purse, in my room, and in my bathroom. This one does moisturize incredibly but without feeling greasy, which I love, but I felt like the other ones were completely useless! I also like the neat packaging although it isn’t very practical if you’re carrying a small purse.
My lips: I would call them average? They get quite dry in the winter or on windier days, but most of your generic chap sticks take care of it (nivea, vaseline). & in the winter, I love using carmex, for that extra kick of hydration.
I wanted to love this product so so so much... It worked wonders the first day, it smelled amazing, felt smooth and it did not accentuate any of the dry skin on my lips. After using it for 24 hours however, I woke up with parched lips. They looked fine, but they felt itchy and irritated and nothing (not even carmex, argan oil, unscented moisturiser) seemed to help. I picked up a Burt's Bees balm, which is now a holy grail item. The unpleasant feeling went away after the first few applications. The reaction was so unexpected and extreme that it put me off eos forever.
Personally, i dont use this alone to moisturize my lips. I find that it works GREAT as a lip primer though, as it helps my lipstick stay on my lips and just gives a nice layer of hydration before i put my lipstick on. If I use this product, I notice my lips get dry after about 10 minutes. NOT good. But i do like it as a lip primer, just not alone.
I love this lip balm. Cute packaging, easy to use, inexpensive, natural ingredients, moisturising, long lasting ... what else should I expect from a lip balm? The only issue for me is the smell, personally I don't find it smell very nice, but it doesn't really bother me. It only smells weird when you are applying it, then the smell disappears and only leaves a nice minty feel on your lips. I know it's natural ingredients, I rather use something smell not that great but natural than something smells great but made with artificial fragrance. I'll keep buying this wonderful product, perhaps another flavor next time.
After a miserable experience with the honeysuckle honeydew balm, I went out on a limb and decided to try out this sweet mint. Mint is one of my favorite lip balm flavors of all time, its pretty much a go to with any brand. EOS makes an exceptional sweet mint, its lovely and gives the perfect tingling sensation to your lips. This is also the creamiest and most moisturizing EOS balm I have tried, which is an accomplishment since I own six different ones. overall I love everything about this balm and will purchase over and over again. I love EOS, though not enough to become one of those crazy collectors that needs to own them all.
