AMW Reviews: EOS Sweet Mint LIp Balm

EOS - Evolution of Smooth
The name itself says it all!  I've seen various beauty bloggers raving about the said spherical-cased lip balm!  I've been wanting one myself but I swore myself not to do much international online shopping because it takes forever an a day before it reaches me!

Thanks to my dearest Shobe Sophie for giving me one to try!  And she knows me too well because she gave me the flavor I would choose in a blink of the eye ---  MINT!

After a week of using this on a daily basis, I will give my initial review as I have been applying and re-applying this on my lips for "God can't even remember!" :P 


Here's how the inside looks!
EOS Lip Balm says ---


Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one.
  • Long-lasting moisture
  • Shea butter & vitamin E
  • Smooths on clear
  • New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
  • Twist-off top
  • Gluten-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Petrolatum-free
  • Phthalate-free
EOS lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, EOS keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Available in: Summer Fruit, Lemon Drop, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Medicated Tangerine and Sweet Mint.


AMW says ---
Pros
  • Packaging is the cutest I've seen!  Enough said!
 
  • Sealed quite well once new. Expiration date printed on the packaging.
  • The packaging can stand on its own which makes it easy to put on top of your work desk or vanity table.
  • 95% Organic, makes me confident to apply this on my lips and I wouldn't mind eating this!
  • No petroleum or paraben that other lip balms have!
  • Not tested on animals!
  • Inexpensive, I've checked multiply sellers selling these for less than Php400.00.
  • Because of its unique shape, packaging, easy glide-on-lips balm, I find myself addicted to re-applying my lip balm which makes my lips more moisturized!
  • I do not need to blot my lip balm before lipstick application as this one isn't waxy so lipsticks do not glide off.
  • The minty feel of Sweet Mint lasts for more than 10 minutes! 
  • With its wider shape, its easy to apply also on the corners of my mouth and outside the lip area which usually dries up easily on me.
Cons
  • Not super moisturizing as expected.
  • Not widely available in local market.
  • The lines on my lips did not disappear or at least lessen its appearance.
  • I was told that not all the scent are a hit!  It really depends on your personal preference.
  • Once you lick your lips, you can literally taste a very sweet, sugar-like substance.  
Overall
The texture of EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm is almost the same as my favorite Mentholatum Lip Ice in Lemon minus the waxy feel!  This is going up the notch as my favorite lip balm because of the fact that its Organic and Paraben-free! 

Tips
  • Read ingredients list and expiration date before you peel off the wrap!  All the writings will be gone! 
  • Slowly twist the cap to prevent ruining the cute lip balm!
  • Apply this on clean and dry lips!
  • As much as possible, wipe the top part of the balm with a clean tissue at least once a day.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes lip balm application.

Where to purchase and how much?
Search local resellers via Multiply.  Price between Php300.00-450.00 (approx $7.00-$10.00).

Here's the size of EOS Lip Balm
A bit bulky for a lip balm but 
I like how I can easily grab this inside my bag!

Have you tried this famous lip balm?
How do you like it?
I personally think there are better lip balms out there BUT
because of its smart packaging, gorgeous Sweet Mint scent, I can't stop re-applying!
*re-applies* Seriously, I just did!

Keep smilin'

Stay happy!

    - this had me...

    - plus this one :)

    Was really waiting for your say on this since you got me hooked on my lip ice lemon..
    Was about to ask which one's better, but i also did realize this being organic. :)
    Very nice review..

  7. the shape is uber cute!!! i'd would keep applying this just to hold and use it :P

    ReplyDelete
  8. I knew you were going to say that! Hahahha

  9. I actually like applying it even in public! KSP! Lol

    ReplyDelete
  10. I know what you mean! Buti may reseller!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I was waiting for someone to compare this to Mentholatum--of course, it would be you! LipIce Fruity is my HG also and I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend on EOS if I could get at least two LipIce for the price, haha. I think I will just have to check this out in person :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. If you plan to try this go for this flavor!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Same as you, I'd love to purchase all flavors just for the packaging!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. my favorite are summer fruit and honeysuckle honeydew, they're my best sellers too! 

    ReplyDelete
  15. You read my mind! The fact that this one is organic is a huge plus, but don't get me wrong, I still love Mentholatum

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow! Toycon??? Really? Because this looks like a toy???

    ReplyDelete
  17. Am I the only one who hasn't tried EOS? I'm really happy with Mentholatum Lip Ice in Lemon for a regular untinted lip balm. But I must admit that I have always thought of the egg-shaped packaging cute. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have this in Honeysuckle and I love that scent. It is fun to apply but its not as moisturizing as The One lip balms but those are a pain cause they are in a pot

    I wanna try the other flavors too

    ReplyDelete
  19. Agree! I find that ok lips people would LOVE this! No wonder most actresses love this because they have good lips! Mine is uber dry!

    ReplyDelete
  20. hahahah well it used to be me who haven't tried EOS, but trust me, a lot haven't tried this pa due to its unavailability! :) If you like Mentholatum Lip Ice you'll find this ok :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Really? Now I want to try that one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. hahahah for someone who raves on Menthlatum! Yes, that's me! :) Glad this helps! and again, this is not as waxy as Mentholatum and the minty feel of EOS lasts longer!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I own the 4 pc set and Mint ang pinaka-fave ko, the red one makes me dizzy kaya ayun di ko nagamit.  IMO mas moisturising yung Stick lipbalms nila, Vanilla Bean smells sooo good. You should give it a try...

    ReplyDelete
  24. ah thanks for letting me know At least I know what "not to" get :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the packaging, it's so cute! Too bad the balm's not very moisturizing though!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Agree, only the moisturizing level. This works for people with good lips to
    start with :)

  27. looks cool! Finally I can comment thanks achi Nikki!

  29. so cute! i love the color of the one you got. sounds like a yummy flavor too. it's too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  30. If you're a fan of anything minty! this is the one for you :) the minty feel
    lasts!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. i have been reading lots of positive reviews about this one..i'm not a lip balm fan but i might give this one a try.

    the packaging is indeed cute!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, if you're not a fan of lip balms, that means you have great lips! I
    CANNOT live without lip balm, its super dry and it cracks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. i have this too and i really liked it when i got it. but in the long run it failed to keep my lips moisturized. :(

    i would agree that the packaging is cute and it smells nice  . i guess this would be moisturizing enough for people with normal lips or those who don't have uber dry lips. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can't agree with you more That's the exact sentiments that I have! Thanks
    for agreeing!

    ReplyDelete
  35. i'm curious about this but i still can't bring myself to spend that money on a lip balm especially since human heart nature is so cheap!

    ReplyDelete
  36. i've been wanting to have that!!!
    nice review!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've heard how Human Heart is good enough and its locally made! So ok na
    yan! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. i'm actually running out of my lipice lemon.. but i think ill still get that one.. :) you started my addiction with that.. then maybe when i'm curious enough with EOS, i might get one.. and yes, i think ill have the mint too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. *applies EOS Lip Balm just now* LOL! the packaging and the shape is seriously addicting! :) Tell me if it gives you the same effect if you finally own one :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. This got me because of its cute packaging. haha. It's not the best lip balm out there but it's addicting. I love the taste! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Katie I agree with you, there are probably better out there, but this is definitely addictive and I'm done with my first one :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. The scent of this one is not nice for me. :-(

    1. Did you get the same color as mine? If so, it must be minty taste instead of otherwise, I wonder how it smells? Di ba expired na?
