Eos Lip Balm: Sweet Mint Review
Almost exactly a year ago, I finally got my mitts on a lip balm that I had been dying to try for absolutely ages. i'd heard so much about it from Beauty Bloggers and You Tube Guru's alike, that I'd finally bagged myself one from Ebay, for a fiver. That lip balm was of course my Eos Summer Fruit lip sphere:
Luckily, a Blog Sale came to my rescue last week and I bagged myself a new one! Oh yes! And happy for me, it was a different flavoured one, so I got to try a new one *yippee*
It's really difficult to know what to say about a product that I've already reviewed, but I do have to say that I'm not really loving this one quite as much as the previous one.
To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of mint-flavoured lip products. However, I'd opted to give this one a go, because I'd remembered how subtle the flavour of the Summer Fruits one had been, but in comparison, I personally found this one to be just too overpowering for me, and if I apply too much it tastes a little sickly too.
I do wonder though, if a minty lip balm would work as a back-up breathe mint for desperate times. Yeah, random thinking there ;D
I'm not a huge fan of this product. I still love the packaging, and I love that it's all natural ingredients wise, but the flavour and scent just really put me off. I'm still intending to use it, because heck I'm not wasting my money, but unfortunately, it probably won't be the go-to product that the Summer Fruits one was.
So yes, a little disappointing. But, just as a quick disclaimer, if you honestly LOVE minty products, then really do give this product a try, because I'm convinced that you will love it!! However, if you're not particularly a fan, it's perhaps best not to chance it on the possibility that you might.
Other Flavours are: Summer Fruits, Sweet Mint, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Lemon Drop, Tangerine, Strawberry Sorbet and Passion Fruit (these last two come as a duo!)
You can pick this up from Ebay, or the Naturally Fabulous website for £4.75 each. The Strawberry Sorbet and Passion Fruit Duo, which both sound yummy are £9.25.
