I tried the eos in honeysuckle melon because I thought it was going to be a pleasant product to try, and I've heard wonderful reviews on these lip balm spheres. Sadly, I am not impressed. Eos or Burts Bees? .....I'll get to that later.
The lip balm does go on smooth which I love! But the product doesn't penetrate on my lips. My lips became so flaky after applying this lip balm. So disgusting. (My lips were never flaky before this)
The sphere is cute and smart marketing but I don't really care about the packaging. If the product doesn't work but the packaging is cute, it doesn't really serve the product's purposes in my opinion.
Hopefully just hopefully, as I continue to use this lip balm, my lips will get used to it and won't be so flaky.
I bought this eos also because it's made of natural ingredients, but I'm going to stick to the good old trustworthy Burt's Bee's in Peppermint next time (which is also made of natural ingredients)

I had heard so many rave reviews on these lip balms, and finally decided to try one out. Honeysuckle honeydew seemed to be one that a lot of people enjoyed, plus I used to have a lip gloss pot that had a honeydew scent (I think it was wet n wild from the 90's) that I adored.
Scent: The scent of this product is pretty horrible in my opinion. It smells like a mixture of wax, high fructose corn syrup, and a very strong synthetic "melon" kind of scent. Softlips has eos beat on scent BY FAR. If I had to smell this product nonstop for more than a minute or so, I would probably be sick.
Performance: At first, this seemed to work well. It applied smoothly, not too heavily, and wasn't sticky. After a few hours it had worn off. Lip balm does that, so it wasn't a problem. Unfortunately, my lips had become super flaky over that period of time. Flakes were sticking up off of my lips and I found them irritating, so I removed them, which left my lips raw. My lips weren't flaky before I used this product. Essentially, it made my lips look and feel worse than before I had used this.
Packaging: I get it, the round packaging is supposed to be cute and unique. However, I found it actually rather difficult to apply because of the packaging. I have long fingers and they couldn't grip the packaging the way they would a normal lip product because there wasn't enough plastic to hold onto to steady the lip balm and keep it on my lips and not all over the surrounding area, as it is rather heavy packaging. Also, you can't put this lip balm in your pocket or in a clutch. It takes up a ton of space in a makeup bag because of all the extra plastic and the fact that it is round.
Overall: Big thumbs down. I will probably end up throwing this away, because I think it's pretty horrible and I wouldn't want to give it to someone else and screw up their lips too. This comes in second to last place of all the lip balms I've tried, last being the Yes to Pomegranates lip balm in the flattened tube packaging, which made my lips flaky like this one but about 10 times worse.

I love this scent of lip balm. It is delicious! It's not the best lip balm out there, but for cute packaging and nice scent -- it's not a bad choice. I'm not sure how moisturizing these little balms are -- I feel like they sit on top of my lips vs. absorbing. But they are nice to have around and easy to grab and easy to apply.

Worst lip balm ever!!! Not moisturising at all!! I bought this after watching Miley Cyrus' MV and I thought I would collect all the eos smooth sphere lip balms! but once i put this on my lips OMG IT WAS NIGHTMARE!!!! My lips got really really dry and it was extremely flaky and people would tell me to put more vaseline or lip balm. This made my lips more drier than ever!!! WILL NOT PURCHASE EVER AGAIN

This is my first time to try this lip balm. I don't know why I used to ignore it when I had seen it at ULTA, but I finally gave it a try and I really love it bec it is so cute, yummy scent, its so moisturizing that it leaves my lips feeling so soft even the next day. I love this bec it doesn't leave a residue after applying it. I love it so much that I bought some for my bf and friends. I also bought the other flavors. I'm so excited to receive it :). I bought thiese at Target for $2.99. Its such a good deal compared to $4.99-$16 at ULTA and other places. I love it!

I tried and I think it is cute and I stays where I put. However I have very dry skin and lips and it really does not offer that much moisture, I have to apply several times. I think it is overpriced for something that really does not keep your lips moist.

FINALLY something that helps my dry lips that doesn't have parabens and is natural.
This stuff is great. The smell can be a little overwhelming, but you get use to it. I still need to exfoliate my lips though, but I put this on right afterwards and don't need to exfoliate for another day or two.
Also the packaging is adorable. Only downside is you need two hand to open it instead of one with the burtsbees (big deal)

I have a nasty lip biting habbit untill they bleed :( so they are often very dry and chapped. I have used so many products so far after a reasonable amount of researching from MUA and make up blogs. I have spend a lot of money on highend products, drug store products and also pharmacy products but none of them give me the result I needed. I have seen EOS lip balm while reading a couple of my favourite make up blogs but they all said cute packaging but an avarege, overrated product. EOS doesn't sell in my country so when I was in Finland for a business trip, I decided to buy one to give it a try :) even I knew about the reviews saying it doesn't do anything, I still wanted to have that little egg!! The result was amazing!! I really have soft and smooth lips now and I really love the smell. I think it is a suitable product for my skin type. I doesn't feel sticky at all and it lasts for a very long time compering the other balms I have tried. I haven't stopped biting my lips but as they are very smooth and soft now, it is very hard to find a dry skin to bite!!! Yeeaah !!! That is the best part of it, with this balm I think I can stop biting my lips. The only problem is that I will have to ask from someone who is going abroad to buy me a couple for stock.

I hoped for so much more from this scent. Instead of fresh and green it smells artificial and plasticky, tastes bad too. The product's performance is mediocre but I do enjoy the unique application.

Must be my current favourite (I own five at the moment). Love love the smell, quite subtile, very good to the lips, in fact mine never been softer than with those eos lip balm. Totally love it!
