I admit at first, I was drawn to the packaging, (which I now think is completely unnecessary and bulky) but I'm loving the formulation. I've tried my share of lip balms, from Kiss of Moisture to all kinds of Blistex, and none of them moisturizes nearly as well as EOS. Usually other balms wear off after a couple hours and leave my lips with a weird slick, but this one really keeps them moisturized and soft.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! This lip balm is SUPER cute both my friend and I are IN LOVE with it. It smells so sweet, and really helps to add moisture to my lips in a hurry. It I was looking for an intense chapped-lips saviour, i would NOT pick this product, but its a great on-the-go lip balm.
I thought the packaging was cute and I like that it is organic and not tested on animals (I will never use anything that was tested on animals). I picked the one in summer fruit, which smells like peaches. I really liked it at first, and the packaging may be annoying for some, but i find that it makes finding the lip balm in my bag easy, and the fact that the cap screws on and off assures me that the product will stay clean and free from dust. I wish it was more moisturizing, and it just felt really waxy, probably won't repurchase
I've bought 6 of these so far, love them! I recently started having issues with my HG Kiehls lip balm and decided to try this when I saw it at Walgreens. It leaves my lips very soft but not waxy like Chapstick, just feeling moisturized. My son has very chapped lips and this lip balm really helped. He loves to put it on himself b/c the packaging is so cool, so he has his own sphere. I've also bought some for my 8 year old niece and she loves it too, carries it in her backpack. I bought them for 2/$5 so a great deal compared to what I've been buying.
I was a sucker for the packaging.
That aside, this is actually really really good at moisturizing and has good staying power. It's a bit waxy but that's alright because the balm isn't sticky at all as a result. I have flaky lips but after using this for a day or two I rubbed my lips together with the balm on and my lips were completely exfoliated. my lips were completely! smooth.
Some people have complained about it not having slip or being too hard/dry - I found that at first the balm was like that but after a while of using it it softened up. I think it's just that the top layer is somewhat dry when it's being shipped. I don't mind because the layer isn't very thick; you get through it in a couple days.
I bought this and the Honeysuckle at a BOGO deal at Walgreens. I loved it the first time I tried it. It's a cute little round ball with a flat bottom so you can stand it up, and the product itself is sort of egg shaped, so you can apply to the top and bottom lip at the same time. It has a nice sort of peach smell and I believe it has shea and/or cocoa butter in it. It feels so nice and moisturizes so well, and it lasts for a long time, I've washed my face and it didn't come off. This is my favorite lip balm out of all the EOS.
My favourite Lip Balm! I have unbelievably dry lips, I mean to the point where they peel everyday and are extremely chapped arpund the edges of lips. I've tried many lip balms to try to treat this problem and for me this one really worked! It was waxy, but moisturized very well and smells great. Plus the packaging is very unique and I love it. I totally recommend this product.
I love the packaging. When I bought it, it was a lot smaller than I imagined. The balm itself goes on very smoothly and was very moisturizing. I really wanted the mint one, but my Walgreens didn't carry it. :( I really don't like the scent of the flavor, but it dissapates (sp?) quickly.
i love the packaging, its so neat. and i love the scent. i cant think of what it reminds me of but i really like it. it makes my lips soft. it isnt sticky or messy and it applies thinly.
EDIT: ive been using it for a few weeks now and my lips have been the driest it has ever been since i was on medication for acne. not good. initially i loved the product for the original packaging and scent, but after using it, it doesnt do the job it claims, which is smooth out and moisturize my lips. its doing the opposite.
Same with everybody, the packaging is what caught my eye. "Do I need another lip balm? But the pink round thing is just too cute. Okay!" I love Weleda Everon lip balm and this lip balm feel the same on my lips. Thin, waxy, but not sticky or shiny. I hate runny lip balms anyway cause they don't last long and I hate to constantly reapply. This has good staying power and it is perfect under lip gloss.
