Review of eos Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit by Tishki
I have several different flavors of eos Lip Balm Spheres and I adore all of them. I find Summer Fruit to be just as it sounds: a light, summery scent.
Packaging Quality: Many reviewers have said they find the shape gimmicky & impractical, but I completely disagree. I find the shape, texture & colors of the packaging to be both aesthetically pleasing & chic. I think the shape is utilitarian b/c I can always easily find it in my handbag. I also find the shape of the balm fun to use. More typically shaped lip balms often become lost in my bag even though I don't carry a lot of stuff in them. This lip balm is not pocket friendly, but I never carry anything in my pockets, doing so ruins the line of your clothes in my opinion! Some have mentioned that sometimes the product breaks away from the base, but I've found this to be occasionally true of all lip products. Thus this lip balm gets 5 lippies from me for packaging.
Price: At $2 to $3 each, sometimes less in a set, the price, while not completely dirt cheap, is a lot of bang for your buck.
Overall rating: I have very dry lips & use lip balm often. I've taken 1 lippie off b/c this balm isn't as moisturizing as I'd like, although I love the ingredients over all. I still use Carmex in the morning as part of my makeup routine but find it too messy to use during the day as you have to use your finger to apply & frankly, Carmex has zero sex appeal! Eos lip balm is perfect for use during the day to maintain happy lips. Thus eos lip balm gets an overall rating of 4 lippies from me.
I do purchase these again & again as I keep one in each of my favorite handbags & in my desk drawer at work. I think these little spheres are genius!
