Guilty - I brought it because of the awesome packaging, it just looks really cute.
However it feels a bit weird to apply because it's quite big. (also because it's sort of shaped like a ball I can throw & catch it when I get bored... which is quite fun lol)
As a lip balm this isn't great, it does moisturize my lips I guess but it's just average.
I wouldn't recommend it if you have chapped lips.
The smell really does resemble honeydew and isn't overpowering which I like.
Also I had to buy it on Ebay because I don't think it's available in the Uk it was quite pricey for a lip balm.
If it was cheaper I might buy some more... but I wouldn't use this if my lips were chapped. :P

The little ball shape is sweet if a little childish- but more importantly the product isn't really that great as a lip balm. Well not for me anyway. In order to keep it in that shape it obviously needs to be quite firm and as a result it has quite a thin, dry consistency when you apply it to the lips. I don't find it very moisturising.
I don't mind a strong scent but I don't really like flavoured lip products- whilst the taste isn't offensive, it is quite sweet- it becomes sickly after not very long. And it's hard then to layer it with lipsticks that might have a clashing scent.
All in all I think it was one worth trying and it isn't flat out rubbish but for conditioning my lips I'll stick to other, richer products.

It's too expensive for chap stick that doesn't really smooth lips. Also whenever I pull it out if my purse someone comments on how big it is. It does have a fresh sent, but I wonder if that makes me lick it off.

Love the smell but you get a chalky after tastes...

PROS: It smells lovely and tastes really good when you "accidentally" eat it. The packaging is very unique and cute, the green is a very cute green too. This sphere shapes makes it easier to find in your bag, but takes up more space than other lip balms.
CONS: This doesn't have a lot of product in it so it runs out easily. This makes my wrinkles on my lips deeper and deeper after a long time, so sad :[
MORE INFO: This product doesn't make your lips glossy and shiny, so if you like shiny lips, when this product might not be your type.
OVERALL: I really like this product, i will definitely repurchase this. It's a pretty reasonable price too.

I only bought this recently and had to pay too much for the delivery from US online store, but I really like this balm. I keep it on my desk to reapply at work throughout the day and it works perfectly. This is not a deep conditioning healing balm, but it works perfectly fine for the daytime lip care. The smell is delicious, packaging is cute and very well made. The only reason I will not repurchase is because the shipping is expensive and I have too many different Jack Black balms to go through before I need to purchase another one.

THE GOOD: the smells are amazing. Always. My sister's friend had a few and my sister loved the smell so much we both bought three each. Honeysuckle was one of my favorites.
THE BAD: it's annoying to apply. It's too waxy feeling and doesn't go on my lips very well. It felt more like I pressed my lips into a candle instead of putting on lip balm.
THE UGLY: personally, love the packaging, but there's too little product in it. Also attracted ants for my friend.

Not the best product, not the Worse. Seems to sit on top of lips instead of sinking in to moisturize.

This isnt the first eos lip balm I've used, and Ive been disappointed by them all. here are my thoughts on this particular one:
packaging: while I find eos' packaging to be unique and at first cute, i eventually found it irksome. to be frank, the sphere shaped balm looks and feels like a toddler toy.
Scent: I love the honeydew melon scent, its sweet and yummy and doesnt taste bad if you lick your lips.
Quality: terrible. This doesnt moisturize, the round shaped balm itsnt easy to apply, and it is so firm that my lips have rubbed raw trying to get balm on my lips. a lip balm shouldnt require almost a whole minute to apply, one swipe, even ten, doesnt deposit the balm on my lips. I will be throwing this out. eos is an awful product, that relies on clever packaging to make sales. The only reason I even gave it one lippie is because of the scent.
While I still dont love this honeysuckle honeydew, I threw it away shortly after my original review. However, I needed to come back and give EOS more credit than last time. I decided to give them one final chance and purchased their limited edition basket of fruit 4 pack and loved them. They're moisturizing and smell wonderful and I've even learned to love the gimmicky packaging because it makes the balm easier to find in my large purse. I wonder now if the honeysuckle one was a dud. I'm so glad i gave this brand another shot!

I love this lip balm when I'm looking for something light to wear throughout the day. This WILL NOT WORK for dry chapped lips, but it's great for a little moisture on the lips. The scent is pleasant, and I'm about 3/4 of the way done with this cute product. The EOS in Summerfruit is just as great.
