I absolutely adore this lip balm!! The smell reminds me of those big puffy peppermint candies that melt in your mouth. It's sweet, but not too over the top and it's minty, but not too over the top. This balm lasts for ages, and the packaging is just tooooo cute! It's bulky in my purse, but I love everything else about this lip balm so much, I just simply don't care!!
Out of all the EOS balms, this one is my favorite bc I like anything minty! I feel like this one goes on smoother than the others and actually moisturize! :) Plus I love the color, reminds me of Easter eggs!
I would have had a much better experience with this product if when I opened it the balm wasn't stuck to the roof of the cap and then fell out into the floor when I tried to get it out. I understand that this could happen with any eos balm, Sweet Mint or not, but it was still a bit of a bum deal. I have not had the heart to repurchase yet, I already have so many lip balms I need to use up, and I'm a bit fearful this would happen again. This review is on the bit of product that I did use, which was great, and upset me even more. Let it be known that this was my fifth eos lip balm that I got, and the first one to fall out. Now I will try and be cheerful. I absolutely adore this. I had wanted a natural lip balm for a while, and I didn't want to spend a crazy amount of money. I also love this futuristic design, even if it isn't practical. So, I picked this up at Walmart for about $3, give or take. It's also in other drugstores for a few cents more. One thing I loved was the shape. Finally, a shape that will make heads turn. Really, I don't think I would have given it a lesser opinion if it didn't have the same shape. The shape is just a bonus, I was surprised to find that it actually was not as large as I expected. The egg shape does fit in my pocket, and once I have actually put two of these balms in my pocket at the same time. They are bulky, but it's okay. It's unique. You twist in a full circle to open it, and do the same to close it. It makes a clicking noise to let you know it's all the way closed. I really like this because you can see how much balm you have used and how much you have left, and with tube balms it's almost a guessing game. It makes it simpler to know if you are going to run out and be stranded without a lip balm. The smell is amazing. When I first smelled it, it almost smelled like a very toned down "mint chocolate icecream" smell. It isn't exactly a Burt's Bees mint smell, a little sweeter. When my guy friend became obsessed with this and got some on himself, he said, "Oh, great. Now I smell like a candy cane." And I suppose it does smell like a candy cane. It is very waxy, but this way it doesn't melt, which would be tragic if it did. If you use it enough like I do, it's not as waxy, more creamy. Problem solved. So, thus, use it more and it's creamier, use it less and it's waxier. When I say more, I don't mean ever 5 minutes or anything, either. I love rubbing my lips together with this product because it feels plain good. It does give you a bit of shine, but nothing like lip gloss. Just a healthy shine. It also has an amazing tingle, which is always a positive. It is 100% natural and 95% organic, which is amazing. If it had sunscreen in it, it would not be natural and organic, which is why I don't mind. I always use this lip balm while a meal is approaching instead of using a lip balm with sunscreen. This way when I eat, I don't have traces of sunscreen and chemicals on my lips to ingest. I understand that sunscreen protection is important, which is why I got the eos lip balm in Lemon Drop with SPF 15! The Lemon Drop is always lip balm for going out. The price is just okay. It's not extremely expensive, but compared to regular lip balms, it's not too cheap either. It does almost have two entire regular tube lip balls inside of it (it's .25 oz), which evens it all out. It's still not something I would buy eight of and scatter around every room of my house. There is only one thing I really dislike besides the price about the balms that are still intact. When you apply the lip balm, it's so easy to scrape the balm with your teeth or the lid. I don't have buck teeth either, trust me. After that, I would have little, tiny scratches on the surface of the balm. It's usually in odd places too, like the complete side of the balm where I hardy apply it at. I guess I just have to be super careful. Overall, I would totally reccomend. And I would buy it again, I love this!
Oh my gosh. Firstly, the packaging is beyond adorable. It is so durable and lightweight. I have dropped it many times and it stays in perfect condition. I love the screw cap it has, for extra security. The actual balm itself is truly amazin'. It goes on so smooth on your lips, it is extra moisturizing (especially in the colder months), and it smells divine. Sweet mint makes my lips have a tingly sensation which I really, really like. I take this little baby everywhere with me. Uber amazing, ladies.
i was suckered into buying every single flavor of this balm because of it's cute packaging (and yes, i'm a serious collector of cuteness) and i will not be purchasing this again. sure, the packaging is way cute, but the balm itself is not very good. it actually ends up drying my lips more than not wearing it and for the way balms go, it isn't exactly cheap :P thanks, but no thanks.
My mum received this through her work and I really love it. The shape really is convenient, it has a tingly feeling, it stays a good time on your lips, you don't have to reapply it ten times a day. It has a nice sweety taste and it lasts for ages! I received it in june and bought the next one in february!
I also recommend it to people who have sensitive lip skin and tend to have cold sores. I never get any of those when I'm using EOS lipbalm, but as it is really difficult to find in Belgium, I sometimes have to go for another brand...
Yeah, I bought this because of the package. Not because it was cute, but because I realized that I would have to keep it in my purse, and not my pocket. I've lost many tubes of chapstick to my washing machine, I can't stick this in my pocket and forget about it because of the unique shape.
The balm itself is fantastic. I have a dry bottom lip that peels no matter how much water I drink or whether or not I use chapstick. This balm keeps them from peeling more so than others which is nice. It has a nice cooling effect, smells great and has a nice taste too. :)
This lip balm is pretty nice. The consistency isn't soft enough for me, though. The smell is nice, but I wish I had bought the honeydew one instead.
Phenomenal stuff. I am one of those people who has a chapstick everywhere. In every purse, on my nightstand, in my car, etc. But lately my lips had been so parched and none of my lip balms were working. I had to reapply many times throughout the day, and I could not find a lip balm that actually made my lips feel any better.
I was running late for something and saw this in the store and grabbed it because it was the only one I hadn't tried, I liked the color of the packaging, and I like minty things. I was worried it would be too "sweet" but it is just right.
I love this stuff, I can put it on before I go to bed and it lasts through the night and into the next day. I can use it ONCE per day and never need to reapply. It also has a very refreshing minty scent. It is fun to apply also. Sometimes it's annoying because if I set it on my nightstand the wrong way it rolls off...but I mostly keep it in my purse so the silly shape of the container doesn't really matter.
I'd love to see more flavors of the stuff!
