 Strawberry Sorbet
Limited Edition Passion Fruit

Sweet Mint



Overall I love the concept of this product! I love that you don't have to stick your fingers in a pot of lip balm, and that it's a change from the traditional stick form of lip balm. The rubberised design is also a huge plus in my books. This product is easy to grip, and the perfect size to pop in your purse. My personal favourite of the three is Sweet Mint - I'm a sucker for anything mint flavoured. This balm smells exactly like traditional mint flavouring, and I'm glad that they didn't try to deviate from this much loved flavour. The other two flavours/scents - Passion Fruit and Strawberry Sorbet are lightly scented. I like that they aren't overwhelming scents. 

If you read my review on eos Summer Fruit, then you'll know that I thought that the application was a bit grainy or textured. This is not at all the case with these three balms. I also purchased the Honeysuckle Honeydew, and this balm had a perfectly smooth application. So I'm not sure what was wrong with my first product, but all of the other smooth spheres I've tried have in fact been perfectly smooth! 

I would highly recommend this product. After using the innovative smooth sphere design, I don't really want to go back to the balm pot or stick! I think that the holiday set would make a great stocking stuffer, or a great addition to a gift. $9.99 for the three balms is a great price in my opinion. One thing that I must comment on is the lack of holiday spirit throughout the gift set. Maybe something a bit more vibrant, red, green, silver perhaps? I love the product, but it in no way screams "holidays!".  

Have you tried eos lip spheres? What are your thoughts on them?

  1. I kept seeing these on blogs and youtube and asked my parents to pick me some up on their trip to Florida last week, they came back with sweet mint so I’m glad you thought that was a good one, part of me doesn’t want to use it since I won’t get my hands on another too easily!

  2. @Discovering Beauty - That's such a shame that you can't find them! They've just started popping up in stores around me, so hopefully they get to your home town soon too :)

  4. I bought one when I went to the US after seeing alot about them on blogs and in videos. I got the Summer Fruits one.
    It has a lovely peachy scent and 'taste' hehe, and not greasy at all. Moisturises the lips nicely as well.
