The packaging SUCKS! I can't think of another word. The balm (the sphere) got broken in half after a few uses. Waist of money.

This is my second eos lip balm because I'm a glutton for punishment, as I didn't like the first one I got. The smell is just amazing. Eos' website says that it's a mix of blueberry, peach, and strawberry. I smell peach, and I also get a little bit of grapefruit, although there's no grapefruit in this at all. Whatever it is, the smell is divine, and it definitely smells like summer!
Unfortunately, the moisturizing ability of the balm doesn't live up to its scent or the adorable packaging. It's got amazing ingredients in it: olive oil. shea butter, jojoba oil. I just can't understand why it's not more emollient. Even if I rub it over my lips repeatedly, it doesn't feel like the balm is actually melting into them. And then it feels like it just sits on top rather penetrating and really softening the dry skin on my lips. I exfoliate my lips regularly, too. Nivea Touch of Honey, Blistex Deep Renewal, Revlon Lip Butters, Almay Liquid Lip Balm, Maybelline Color Elixirs, It Cosmetics Lip Butter in Je Ne Sais Quoi: these are all the products I use to moisturize my lips that work 100 times better than the eos :(
I know this is about the cutest lip balm the world has ever seen, of course, but I wish I could actually like the product as much! I'm giving a star for the packaging and a star for the scent. A lot of people like these so it's worth a few bucks to give it a shot if you've got a few bucks to spare, but if you want hydration you can count on, I'd advise you to pass.

When I went overseas with my family my lips were so chapped which is rare. I only brought baby lips colour which I realised was a mistake because I would apply it every night and wake up with a gross white gunk on them and I had to keep rub and re-apply. So I finally bought eos as my sister suggested from sasa in Hong Kong and as soon as I started using it, my lips felt much more relieves and better although I do need to reapply more I found it helpful for my lips as they were just dry and a bit painful. I had had never heard of this brand before so when I saw the packaging I didn't have high expectations.
I love it and I will buy it again. As my lips are normally not that dry anyways.

I think the hype over this lip balm is its unique and cute packaging. It looks nice for whipping out in public and it can even be a conversation-starter. But after at least a year of using this, it's really nothing remarkable in terms of hydration. I find that if your lips are already moisturized, this just seals the moisture in and prevents lips from drying out, but it doesn't help my lips at all when it's severely dry, chapped, and cracked. When that happens, even Vaseline does a much better job. In fact, I use Vaseline at night and a Nivea lip balm in the mornings, which healed my lips much faster.
On the plus side, this lip balm smells and tastes great, and softens your lips a bit without it feeling sticky, which is why it's great for makeout sessions. The ingredients are very clean and all-natural as well, if you're concerned about swallowing synthetic ingredients. Lastly, this lip balm contains a lot of product for its price. Very good value for money.

I really love the unique packaging of this fruity lip balm. The the smell and flavor is very sweet and enjoyable, however it only makes my lips feel smooth for a few hours. The price is very low and these little spheres are widely available. For me this lip balm is more for fun and taste and less as an actual lip treatment. For hydration i prefer Sugar rose lip balm, it has the sweet sugary taste but hydrates and smooths my lips far better (at a far higher price though). I like to pop this in my book bag, car, handbag for sweet smell and taste.

I have this in summer fruit and strawberry sorbet. Strawberry seems to be a more popular flavor but I actually like summer fruit, it has a light fruity scent that I don't find overbearing or offensive. I keep this on my nightstand, the egg shape is perfect because it never falls or rolls off. I use it every night and my lips are still moisturized in the morning. I plan on using these balms for a good while.

I am not impressed. This product is just OK, it gives thirsty lips some relief but does not heal, nor does it really moisturize a whole lot. Packaging is cute but the lip balm itself is thick, not ideal for application to the lips. This is definitely one of those overly-hyped products. Meh.

Disappointing. Pros: cute packaging, appealing eco-friendly beauty concept. Cons: Not moisturizing enough, lip balm fades on lips easily, expected better flavour and smell, packaging can easily get dirty.

I have a small collection (so far) of the EOS lip balms. I love the reaction on other's faces when I pull it out and apply it, because they find the packing so odd! I find it unique and fun. It's small, so perfect for on the go, and the different flavors and colors are a conversation starter, for sure! They are moisturizing, and I love the hint of color it adds to my lips.

If your a stickler for smell this is for you! My lip balms and lip sticks have to smell yummy (that's not always the case) but any ways this smells AWSOME and I dose moisturize my lips a bit so thumbs up
