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:

I absolutely loved my Lip Sphere: I loved the smell, the flavour and the quirkiness of the packaging. And then, one day a few months ago, I *sniff* lost it.

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*

I'm still adoring the packaging, and it's nice to have it in a different colour. I really wish I knew where my old one was, because I can imagine they'd look so cute (did I really just use the words "so cute" together?) next to each other.

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.

When I first opened my original lip sphere, the smell just blew me away, in fact the other half's words had been "yummy", and wearing it had been like a little piece of Heaven (yes, I know how corny that sounds) because it lasted for ages on my lips, smelt gorgeous and tasted delicious (what? it did taste good!). But, I'm not really feeling that with this 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.

Have you tried the Eos Lip Spheres?
Which is your favourite flavour?
Or, which flavour do you really want to try?


  1. I really want to try these as they smell fab! I've never bought one though as I couldn't find them for less than £7. I'm going to hunt around on eBay now :) xo

    1. Yeah, I've found some very over-priced ones, but Ebay does have some great priced ones. Or failing that, naturallyfabulous.co.uk sell them too :)

  2. I have all three lip sphere's unopened at the moment as I'm trying to work through my ridiculously large colleciton of lip balms before I open them. They've been sat there for about a month while I slather on the lipbalms that I'm already using! I have a spare summer fruits one if you want? (I didn't put it on my blog sale) =)


    1. Aww, that would be great! I've emailed you :)

  3. I purchased a 3 pack of EOS lip balms from eBay last year, my favourite out of the lot has to be the Honeysuckle Honeydew one, nom nom!

    1. I really need to try that one don't I :D I want to try them all though haha!!

  4. These look so quirky and cool! Xx

    1. They are honestly AWESOME, even if I'm not a fan of the mint one! You look at them and think that they're going to be a gimmick, but they really are nice!I just wish more shops sold them in the UK :-/

  5. I had my husband purchase 2 of eos (evolution of smooth) he chose summer fruit & honeysuckle honeydew. I opened the second one first,loved the light green color :)
    I really like this product! I am enjoy the smell,taste,longevity and smooth lips. I haven't tried the other yet,but look forward to it. I live in Virginia,US my husband made the purchase at a local gorcery store.
