For me, EOS lip balm is nothing special, in spite of its popularity, curious shape and nice scent. What it is supposed to do (moisturize lips), it doesn't do. I found myself reapplying this all day, trying to make it work... but it didn't. Not worth the price tag for sure.

Let me start by talking about EOS lip balms in general. I have several, and I like them pretty well. They are pretty moisturizing, but better as a light summer lipbalm than as a super rich winter/fall lipbalm. It isn't very long lasting but most lipbalms really aren't so that's okay. Like most people, I appreciate the shape of these as well as the different colors. Now as for this particular scent/flavor, I'm not a huge fan. It is sweet and true to its name but I guess I'm just not a honey dew fan. I prefer some of the other ones but this one still gets used occasionally.

It's my favorite Chapstick. By far. It's VERY moisturizing. I love the various types but honey suckle is the best! Plus the packaging is so cute!! All ladies should get this!!

I was attracted to the space-agey look of this product and sometimes I'm a sucker for packaging. :(
It is kind of expensive, I've seen it for $5 each at some stores.
After finding one on sale at shoppers drug mart for $3.50 or so, I bought this honeydew flavour because I was afraid the other scents there were fakey smelling like other fruity lipbalms I've tried from different line (haven't confirmed how the EOS summer fruit smells like yet, I just thought honeydew honeysuckle was the safest)
I'm big on reading ingredient labels and am always looking for the yummy good for you ingredients that it has and was excited when I saw that the first listed ingredients are all those good for you things, especially coconut oil, Jojoba oil and shea butter which is really good for you.
Ingredient lists from the website are:
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Beeswax/Cera Alba (Cire D'abeille)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Natural Flavor (Aroma), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Extract*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Tocopherol, Cucumis Melo (Honeydew Melon) Seed Extract*, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract*, Limonene**, Linalool**. *Organic. **Component of Natural Flavor. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.
I don't have to buy all organic ingredients, but this one happens to be.
After trying this, yes, this moisturizes and you get a lot of product which will last a while. Is it the best moisturizing lip balm I've ever tried, no. The scent is subtle and not overpowering and not "fakey" smelling which is great. But, it's not easy to find products with a lot of good for you ingredients listed on the top of the ingredients listing, so that is why I gave this product 4 instead of 3 lippies.
I wouldn't buy this product again only because since it's pricier, I've had better lip balms from vichy and ROC instead so I'd save my money to splurge for one of those ones.

The honey doo is my fav since the rest kinda have a nauseating smell to them. They're also inexpensive and cost around $3 at target and Walmart. Only problem I have is the size but over all it is the best lip balm I've ever used

I got this on sale for $2.00 at Loblaws one time, so it was a steal! I love the smell of honeydew, and this lipbalm actually has a slightly sweet flavour to it. No, I'm not saying you should take a huge bite of it, but when it sits on your lips, it doesn't feel like I rubbed my lips with a candle, as with some lipbalms.
This lipbalm moisturizes quite well for me, and I only have to reapply maybe once or twice a day, depending on how much talking I have to do. This product isn't "addicting" so even if you change products, or don't reapply, it's not going to hurt you.
I love this product, and I went back and got some in the Summer Fruit flavour! Just to switch things up.

I will be writing a review for 6 different Eos Lip Balm Sphere. The first two paragraph will be almost the same in each.
First off, I L-O-V-E the packaging. It's super cute and definitely unique. It's quite easy to use and you get a good amount of product. I like to toss it in my bag, and for many of my chapsticks, I get concerned that the cap is going to pop off, but I don't have a problem with this one. It "clicks" when you close it, and wont just come off when you don't want it to.
I personally load up a lot of chapstick and like to be able to feel it on my lips. I took away a lippie because I wasn't able to do that. Though you can't put on a lot of product, it actually works quite well. It keeps your lips well moisturized and soft, but compared to other chapsticks, the formula is rather hard and you have to warm it up a bit to get it to go on smoothly.
While I didn't fall head over heals in love with the taste and scent of this Eos, it is light, delicate and perfect for summer. With this one, you sort of have to "break it in" and use it before you can really smell and taste it. Overall, it's pleasant and I would re-buy it, but I think I prefer lemon drop and strawberry sorbet.

this has to be one of my favourite lip balms of all times! so hydrating and works wonders on my lips instantly after I put it on. defiantly a re-buy and though eos is pricy at certain places, it's defiantly worth it.

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.
