This lip balm is way hyped. I like it, but it's not the best thing out there. I like the fact that it is a very natural product, but the formula makes the lips feel waxy. I feel as if I must press my lips together in order for it to really soak in and moisturize. I find that is is very nice to use before exfoliating the lips. I apply this, exfoliate, and then I can apply another lip product. My favorite lip balms of all time are from Crazy Rumors. (Vegan). I do like the packaging for the EOS lip balms though. It's very cute and unusual. It's also very easy to find when digging in a purse. The packaging makes the application of the product a breeze, but there are better options out there when it comes to lip balm.

Doesn't keep lips moisturized at all. In fact, I had to keep reapplying just to make sure I was putting on "enough" but it never worked. It felt like it sat on top of my lips, provided no sheen, and needed reapplication. I ended up switching back to blister within a couple days.

Cute packaging and smells ok but that is all. Don't believe the hype!

Pros: -Smells good
-Cute packaging
-Cheap
-Variety of colors/scents

Cons: -End up throwing it away before finishing
-Starts to smell weird after a couple months of having it
-Starts to collect grime very quickly
-Doesn't moisturize well if you have chapped/flaky lips. Make sure to exfoliate your lips before using this.
-Thick and waxy
-Leaves your lips wanting more, must keep reapplying

All in all, it's ok, but definitely not the best.

I used these for about two years because I love the look of the packaging. I thought that I just had very dry lips, because every morning and evening I would scrub flakes off my lips while washing my face. After trying a couple of different balms, I realized why: the eos spheres barely moisturize. I apply lip balm every one or two hours because I find the feeling of dry lips so unpleasant. With the eos spheres, if I didn't have access to balm as soon as I needed it, my lips would become painful - not just dry-feeling.

The other thing, as a couple of other reviewers have noted, is that the twisty part collects an obscene amount of grime. It's pretty gross and I put up with cleaning it because I love the packaging, but really: you can do better. You can find lip balms that moisturize AND that you don't have to clean. If you want to try an alternative, I'm currently using and liking the Nivea Essential lip balm.

I can across EOS by accident. My lips were so dry when I was on vacation and the only brands to by were Blistick, Lysol, and EOS. I always used Chapstick and there wasn't any so I grabbed an EOS and fell in love with it so much I went back and bought every flavour. I will never buy any brand again. Love them so much!!

No, it isn't the most hydrating lip balm, however, it is super tasty and cute, and it does stay on and protect my lips longer than any other lip balm I've tried. It seems like some people have issues with mold. I've used these for years, and never had any mold. Perhaps make sure your lips aren't wet when you apply the balm, so that you don't end up trapping moisture inside the container? Or maybe if you live I a very damp climate, these wouldn't be the best choice.

For the price, it's not horrible- however for the hype, its not what its cracked up to be. The packaging is probably my favourite thing. The sphere shape is so convenient as it covers your whole lip and goes on quite evenly. The texture is a it bit waxy and not that moisturizing. It definitely doesn't sink in but rather sits on top. This stuff is decent for the price but that's about it.

I love lip balms and have tried many. This does not live up the hyper and does not keep my lips hydrated at all!

I first used this lip balm couple years ago, before it was the "hype" and it worked quite well moisturizing my lips. I stopped using it until one of my family member bought a huge pack of these at Costco, and had no choice but to use the product again. It may be effective at its packaging and look but it for some reason, is ineffective at moisturizing. It only helps temporarily but the dryness would come back...after I am done using up all of these horrible eos lip balms, never will I purchase these again.

I love the ball like packaging but I find that the spiral closing device collects dirt and bacteria in it which is a huge turn off from these products. When I originally began using these products I love them (which is why I have around eight) and now it's been about a year since I started using them and I cannot stand them anymore for the following reasons:

1. The lid collecting germs as I said above
2. After a while and now with it being a harsh winter in Canada I find these lip balms extremely drying and I find them causing my lips to flake and peel off in layer which is not appealing to anyone
3. The outside of the packaging collects dirt and germs and makeup from being in my makeup bag and they begin to look run down and dirty and it's unappealing
