I've wanted one of the eos lip balms for sooo long because they are just so darned cute! I finally just had to get one. The scent is a very non-realistic strawberry, but not in a bad way. It's not a very potent, so it probably won't affect you unless you are very sensitive to fragrance of any kind.
If your lips aren't really really dry, and you don't care about sunscreen, then I see no problem with this balm at all. I just wouldn't make this my number one (or even my number four) lip balm, and I find myself reaching for it more for the gorgeous packaging and color than anything else. I reach for my Blistex Deep Renewal to do the heavy lifting.
I will say this: It's got a nice consistency that glides on in a thin layer and therefore makes a GREAT lip primer. A couple of my MAC Satins and Mattes tend to skip because they are so full of pigment, so this allows this to go on smooth and stay put because it's not too heavy. I might buy one of these again for that reason, but I wouldn't get this scent again.

This is my new favorite product! And I don't mean just favorite lip product, I mean out of everything I'm using right now, I make sure this one is within reach at almost all times. I even take it to bed with me at night! I tuck it under my pillow incase I wake up with dry lips. Which used to happen a lot but is now much less frequent since I've been using this gem. I'm a total spaz for lipglosses. I always have more of those than anything else and half the weight of my purse is just lip products. I've written a more detailled review on the Summer Fruit flavour of this because that was the first one I tried. Basically, I bought that one for my baby sister and when I was visiting her one day I put some on. Then when we were out shopping later I realized my lips felt really soft and smooth, so we figured out it was this stuff and I bought this flavour. Which is pretty tasty. Even my boyfriend has commented on yummy kisses. :) that's always a good sign, right ladies!!! My only issues with this are the price, and the fact that it's tricky to put on with a lip ring. But it's still quicker to apply than twist-ups because of the round shape, which is actually solid product. It's not a roller ball that rolls on liquid product. It's very solid. So you can apply it to the top AND bottom lips at the exact same time! Can you do that with any other lip product?! Because it's so solid, it lasts a lot longer than softer glosses. And it's much less messy than sticky syrupy or liquidy products. All around, I think this stuff is great! Bonus that it's all natural and organic, like their other products. I've loved their hand cream for years and I'm after the shaving cream next. EOS has great products and I think this one is their most innovative one so far. I love it. Just wish it was cheaper! Or if they would do those two-for-one boxes more often!

So the first eos lip balm I got was the minty one. Then the summer fruit one, which was okay. But this is by far my favourite. I love it so much. I literally carry this around with me everywhere. It has a very sweet, pretty scent and it has no bad aftertaste. It leaves my lips soft and plush. I chew my lips a lot, so I reapply about once every 2-3 hours. The packaging is a bit of a bulk, but it's so worth it. I highly recommend this!

I love the EOS strawberry sorbet. I'm not a lip-licker, and don't have super-dry lips, so it's the perfect level of moisture for me. It keeps my lips smooth for hours, feels great on, and has no color and a really soft smell. This wouldn't likely be my choice if I had really chapped lips, or maybe not in the middle of winter; but for the rest of the year, it's become my go-to for daytime lip balm.
I do like the sphere, though I wasn't sure I would when I bought it. It's easy to apply, and lasts a long time.

Love the eos lip balm spheres! My first purchase was a sweet mint and strawberry sorbet. They both smell yummy, come in adorable egg-like packaging and cute colors. I like the fact that they don't tint your lips, they just give off a little flavour (usually similar to the scent). My sweet mint smells like mint gum and leaves a little tingling feeling on your lips. The strawberry sorbet smells so delicious and if you lick your lips, is a liitle sweet! Very pleased with the products, they leave my lips soft and moisturized. I will definatley be purchasing some more in different flavours!

My 8 year old demanding that I buy her this in that sweet, cute way that an 8 year old girl can... ...So I caved and bought it for her as an implulse purchase at a local Target. Inexpensive, cute packaging and suitable enough for a kid to take to school. Smells yummy. She likes it, and I'm fine with it for her. I stick to my Labello HydroCare at the office and Skinceuticals lip treatment at home.

I use lip balm religiously and honestly I don't see anything superb about this product. Packaging is cute, the little egg shape plastic it's in is cute, thats it. It only lasts a few minutes after application, it literally doesn't last. Doesn't make my lips feel like I've put much of anything on them. I'd stick to regular Chapstick brand or Blistex if your looking for a regular lip moisturizer. They work, last longer and are less expensive.

Love my eos!!! i don't understand the negative reviews on this product. If you have extremely dry and chapped lips i wouldn't recommend this but it is great for everday use for normal to dry lips! the smell and packaging is wonderful! LOVE EOS.

Like a reviewer said, it is a bit waxy. It doesn't do much for my lips. It smells good.. and tastes good.. (I AM A HORRIBLE LIP LICKER. I didn't eat it, lol) It's a little moisturizing but then after a while, my lips are dry.

The only thing I liked about this was the smell. After application, my lips did stay moisturized for a bit but then it actually made my lips dry and flaky. The consistency is very waxy. Glad to give it a try because I do love the smell of these spheres but I'd much rather stick to my SOFTLIPS products. The shape is unique but odd for me that I can't fit it in pockets. I'd prefer a stick-shape packaging.

Agree with another reviewer below that this feels waxy and like the product never really sinks in to moisturize. I didn't have the same problem with the summer fruit flavor so note sure if it's this strawberry flavor or just this particular one I got. Aquaphor and my Babylips work so much better than these guys.

I just got this product today and so far so good. It smells like a strawberry Starburst to me. I like how this is natural and still very moisturizing. I'll buy this again.

Eos products are super trendy and cute looking and the spherical design is unique you just have to have it, right? Honestly I only bought a few of these because of the packaging and they are great for the summer time I think but if you are in the winter where lips get dry very fast this lip balm is USELESS. It smells and tastes nice but it only makes your lips feels smooth if they aren't chapped in the first place. Also it's super expensive for what it is, I'll stick to my nivea or carmex.

I love these lip balms! They are the cutest thing ever. They taste and smell delicious and they keep my lips moisturized for hours! I only get them when they are on sale (2/6.00) because the only place I can find them they sell them for $3.99.

Got this at Walgreens for ~$3. I like the smell of this one, it really smells like a sweet strawberry syrup and it's not overpowering. The balm is in a twist-off cute round plastic ball and it very functional and easy to find in a bag. Not easy to fit in a pocket though.
The balm is tasteless and moisturizes fairly well. It's not sticky, more of a waxy texture and doesn't feel like it completely sinks in. I would continue using this cos of the nice smell, but probably not repurchase. It's a bit expensive and there are more moisturizing products. Still cute though!

I am absolutely obsessed with the EOS eggs! I think they're so cute and I just have to have them all! my first EOS egg was the Honeysuckle and that one has an amazing smell and a great flavor, the Strawberry Sorbet it my second one I've bought and it also has an amazing smell and flavor! I really don't think these are the greatest if you actually have really dry cracked lips but they do make your lips soft, but you have to apply it a lot throughout the day because anything will take this lip balm off of your lips, but they are so cute! I gotta have them all!

I heard a lot of people in the States raving about EOS products, so I took a look online and finally ordered the strawberry sorbet lip balm.
First of all, I thought the packaging was really cute and cool but recentrly I saw at a pharmacy those balls to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, and it just looks like that!! LOL now it kind of embarrasing to use it in public because some people have told me as well that it looks like that xD
Now onto the important thing, the product: it's a good but on the average side lip balm. Honestly, it smells and tastes really well and it moisturizes well. The thing is that, I can't tell that much difference compared to other lip balms out there. I'd buy them again if they were available in my country but I'm not too sure about ordering online just for lip balm xD

Like the mint, this just doesn't work for me. Makes my lips peel even more it seems! Burt's Bees Refreshing lip balm is still the best I've used.

I was really expecting this to be a decent lip balm! I've seen eos balms everywhere for the last few years, and I was thinking "Where there's smoke, there's fire!"...in the sense that there must be a reason for the popularity of this product!
I've been using it for about 3 months, and from when I started, to now, I'm not impressed. I rated it 3 lippies because it's not a bad product; it's non irrating, inoffensive, and not overly expensive. But it's really not a great one either.
On application, it's smooth and smells/tastes very light and subtly fruity. It feels nice and lasts by itself for about 15 minutes, then my lips are left a little dryer than usual, with a bit of a strange waxy feel to them. It just doesn't do much.
And yes the packaging is adorable, but don't take it out on a bus, or with you to the movies...If you drop it, you will probably never see it again! Roll on, Columbia! ;)
I don't recommend this product. Resist the urge! Not worth your money.

LOVE this particular flavor! Super moisturizing, smells sweet and yummy, and even tastes good! These are very soft and healing on the lips. I have skipped out on ChapStick, Soft Lips, and LipSmackers when I found eos!!! I will def repurchase and I recommend it to everyone!
